SIX MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE HIGH STANDARD SET AT HAMILTON'S Rising Cost of Learning Is Forecast FHILADELPIA. Penn., Aug. 27. (UP)--The nationwide increase in college enrollment will present a serious problem to colleges and universities in the next decade, according to n. Temple university report of the educational situation. Youth will demand greater facilities for a higher education a better organization of educational programs, the survey showed, and if such training becomes necessary in obtaining employment, the public must bear the expense. Make National Survey. The report is the result of a nationwide survey and presents a consensus of opinions of potential college students and those already enrolled. The renewed interest in higher education and the tremendous Increase in enrollment, according to Mlllard E. Gladfelter, who prepared the report Indicates a faith in the future and an optimism that promises an early recovery. Increase Due to Depression. Cladfelter said the increase In college and university enrollment is due largely to the depression and unemployment among high school graduates. He added, however, that in Intei-vicwtng hundreds of applicants he was impressed by the hope and idealism of modern youth. "While many students are interested In college for personal gam."

That's the question that has agitated parents since Jackie Coogan mounted the throne that today is occupied by Shirley Temple, Jackie Cooper, Mickey Rooney and Jane Withers. And the answer, according to studio managers, is one chance in 3 000,000. During the past decade, they explain, the number of child stars of importance can be counted on one hand. The interest in child stars is growing, however. Gus Edwards believes! He is known for discovering Eddie Cantor, Georgie Jessel, Mitzl Mayfair and others. Co-Op Houses Help in School Expenses BERKELEY, Aug. 27. (UP) --The energetic experiment of co-operative student boarding houses under university supervision may do more than anything else to spread education, University of California authorities believe. With several units already operating at a student cost of approximately ?15 a month, an apartment house is to be leased to house 30 other students who will be able to attend school on $18 a month--as cheap, or cheaper, than they could live at home. All work in the houses is cooperative, and the main actual purchases are in food, household supplies and utility services. Edie is Superintendent. RUDD, Aug. 27.--I. W. Edie is again superintendent of the Rudd consolidated school. Exceptional Instruction StaffNamed Teachers Have Special Training, Are Well Experienced. The Hamilton School of Comerce has an exceptional faculty, probably not duplicated by any similar school in the mid- dlewest. All members of the staff have had specialized training and experience in the subjects they teach and several hold master's degrees and have done considerable graduate study in the best of higher institutions. In line with the policy of the Hamilton school of offering far better than average courses, a faculty is employed consisting of educators who have had not only the scholastic training but actual experience in the business world. W. R. Hamilton, the president, who received his advanced education at Highland Park college, teaches penmanship, business organization and administration, marketing and law. Studied at Columbia.

She was BUSINESS AS A FIELD OF SERVICE and OPPORTUNITY BUSINESS OFFERS both service ond opportunity to yoang men and women. There is no discrimination of any kind against those who can do their work. THOSE SEEKING EMPLOYMENT and opportunity m this attractive field can improve their chances with specialized technical training. THERE HAS BEEN MUCH MISUNDERSTANDING about the preparation necessary to gain satisfactory employment. Training in shorthand, typewriting, ond bookkeeping is valuable, but are not in themselves sufficient. THIS SCHOOL OFFERS courses of Senior and Junior Grade, which prepare the student in a complete and thorough manner, and materially aid in meeting competition. AN ATTRACTIVE BULLETIN DESCRIBING THESE MORE ADVANCED COURSES WILL BE SENT UPON REQUEST. Hamilton School of Commerce MASON CITY, IOWA has been on leave at Northwestern university. Iva J.

A. at the University of Iowa, formerly serving as superintendent at Iowa Falls and Forest City, teaches industrial economics and business psychology. Marvin E. Wolter is student counselor and in charge of boys' basketball. In an interview with Mr. Hamilton on changes and improvements that have been made in the school recently, it was his opinion that the most outstanding things that have been accomplished were the improvement in courses and employing a faculty exceptionally well prepared. This has made it possible to prepare students much more coniprrTely and thoroughly, who are able to demonstrate their ability to do high-grade work. Unusual Records Made. According- to the records of the school, two classes are graduated each year and the members of these two classes for the year 1934, with just two exceptions, are holding satisfactory positions. These two graduates were placed, but have since made changes on their own initiative. This school does not guarantee positions, believing such policy to be unethical, but prefers to point to this record aa a far greater assurance to the prospective student that he will have an opportunity after he is thoroughly qualified. There have been great changes in the business world during the past five years. The Hamilton school has made a sincere effort to anticipate and meet these new conditions, and the fact that the graduates of the past year have been so successful is gratifying to the management. The fall term is to opened Tuesday morning, Sept. 3, and an unusually large class of students has already been registered. Ten Year Old Boy P r i n t s , Publishes His Own Newspaper SHEBOYGAN, Wis., Aug. 27. (UP)--Ten year old Bruce (Buster) Hoefer is the sole editor, publisher, reporter, pressman, copy writer, printer, business and circulation manager of a Sheboygan newspaper. A feature on the adventures of a reporter led Buster to utilize his typewriter, some extra paper he didn't use in school, and several sheets of carbon paper to turn out the first edition of his paper last March. It was hard work, Buster found, to do all the work himself, particularly printing his papers on a typewriter. Unable to obtain capital from his father, Ernst Hoefer, Buster purchased a $42.50 duplicating machine on liberal terms. The salesman told him to pay a dollar every time he could, and Buster now has reduced his debt to less than $35. His papers are printed with the duplicating machine now. The paper is publishd irregularly. After he returns from a brief vacation with his parents to New York, however, Buster says paper will be put out weekly. The paper contains editorials and a few comics which Buster draws. School teachers are subjected to frequent jokes and attacks in editorialized news stories appearing in the paper.
