Class of 1968 I Face By JEANMARIE ELKINS - Homt Ntwt Staff Writtr Brothers, boyfriends, fathers, sisters and mothers scrambled from bleacher seats. Bright-white exploding flashbulbs reflected on white graduation gowns. St. Peter's High School class of 1968 was graduating. Young ladies in white caps and gowns, the men in blue and faculty members in black robes nuns favoring their traditional veils over academic mortarboards marched into the school gym for last night's brief ceremonies. , Later, as each class member stood in his place when named by the Rev. William H. Capano, relatives again took snapshots, A few lucky ones caught a profile. New diplomas in hand, graduates listened as the Rev. Robert A, O'Leary read the lyrics from "The Impossible Dream" as he urged them to "have a sense of daringness in the face of the unknown." "We must be concerned with the plight of every man and every nation on the face f, this earth." ' "No crusade was the work of one man alone," he said in asking the graduates to "retain at least the general outlines' of principles they learned in school and use them in every day life. Father O'Leary reminded the graduates their departure from high school was not an end but a beginning. They would have a new freedom and with that freedom would come responsibilities. "Some men see things and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not," he said, echoing a favor-iie quote of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and used in his eulogy by his brother, Sen. Edward Kennedy.. That quotation was repeated later, by Valedictorian Donna Marie - Murasko, who described her contemporaries as "no longer children" but a generation "about to share the responsibilities of the world." Trying to assure parents that this generation was capable of accepting the challenge, she said "giving is not easy to learn" because "it is against man's nature to place himself in a vulnerable position." But the class of 1968, she declared, was "ready to go out and give of ourselves." That philosophy of giving had been learned in religion classes, and Newark State Graduates Announced . Newark State College held commencement exercises this week and a number of students from New Brunswick area received degrees. ' Receiving bachelor of arts degrees were: General Elementary Education .

Mathematics Mary Gettrich of Dunellen; Vera Kasay of Old Bridge; Is Emotional Compromise Worth 53 oj c Income? By MARY FEELEY Dear Mary Feeley: When my husband passed away, I moved in with my daughter and son-in-law. My furniture was absorbed into the deal washer and dryer, refrigerator, range, dining room set, TV, chairs, bedroom set and lots of linens. I own the car and pay the license and insurance, which amounts to about $100 a year. My total income is $150 a month and I pay my daughter $80 a month. Do you think this is a fair arrangement? Oregon Reader Dear 0. R.: Depends. If you look at it purely from a financial standpoint, paying 53 per cent of your income for room and board is certainly excessive, especially when you seem to be furnishing most of the house. . However, the real question seems to me to be this: how much concession must you make in order to be welcome in the household? I'm not implying that your daughter and son-in-law aren't devoted to you. But a young couple don't always find it ideal to have an older member of the family living under the same roof. Maybe they're making emotional compromises, and your practical contributions ease the going. Another question to ask yourself is, where else could you find housing and meals for the same price, let alone for less? If the living is comfortable, and you can make do with . $70 cash a month, accept the fact that you're more than paying your way. Vou'd feel a lot worse if you were always on the receiving end. Dear Mlsi Feeley: Could you please tell me the cost of feeding four children three boys 16, 13, and 11, and my daughter 14 plus my husband and myself. He's 56 and I'm 43. ' With 'Daringness,' communication was reflected in an earlier address by saluta-torian Josephine T. Kinal. "No longer can man live simply in his own world," she said in making reference to Vie' nam and assassins' bullets. "Deep understanding and communication begins between James Edgar KornmeyerlCoif Edison cum laude; Linda Ko-val of Carteret; Madeline New-mark of Iselin; and Leonard Shulman of Woodbridge. .

We have never kept records before, and I'm . at a loss as to how to start. Any kind of statis- i tical help you can give will be greatly appre- : ciated. I'd also like to know how much to allow to clothe the children and myself. We are in the $20,000-and-over bracket. Mrs. L. L., Chicago Dear Mrs. L.: On your income, your standard of living would indicate the Liberal cost scale which, according to Department of Agriculture estimates, would be $65.60 a week for your family. However, since the cost for each member decreases when there are four or more at the table, deduct 10 per cent for an actual total of $59.04 or let's make it a round $60. That $65.60 figure is determined this way: Weekly food cost for a man 56, $9.80; for a woman 43, $9.70. A boy 16 requires $13.40 worth of food; at 13, $11.70; and at age 11, $10. Your 14-year-old daughter presumably would consume $11 worth. These are national averages, and vary to some extent in different sections of the country. : Clothing costs are more , difficult to figure than appetites. In fact, about all the statistic il help you can depend on is that the average family spends from 8 to 15 per cent of net . income for clothing and upkeep. How much rent you pay or how much property tax' and morf gage payment you're committed to affects your clothing allotment just as your grocery bi'l does. Once you arrive at the percentage of income you can afford in order to dress the family, then you must apportion it logically. And these individual allowances will have to be changed as ages and activities change. I say start with the breadwinner's needs, and work down from there.
