Up. .. With by Pamela Swift Cost of Education "The Low Tuition Fact Book," recently published by the American Association of State Colleges and Universities, contains the following eight basic facts about tuition and educational opportunity: 1. The rate of full-time college attendance among 18- to 24- year-old students has declined precipitously in recent years, particularly among students from low- and middle-income families. 2. The percentage of high school graduates going to college is especially low in states with high tuition. 3. The percentage of Vietnam veterans going to college is generally low in states with high tuition. 4. A University of Wisconsin study found that lowering tuition increases the number of students going on to college. 5. A recent Stanford Research Institute study shows that students from low-income families would be extremely responsive to a reduction in tuition rates. 6. U.S. Census data shows that families are especially hard hit right now because an unusually large number have more than one dependent in college at the same time. 7. Bureau of Labor Statistics calculations of family budgets indicate that very few families have adequate funds to meet college costs. 8. Current student aid programs are not adequate to meet the needs of most students, even the poor. They are particularly inadequate for working-class and middle-income students, and for older and part-time students. Each of the above facts is documented in "The Low Tuition Fact Book," which is available for 50 cents a copy from AASCU Publications, Suite 700, One DuPont Circle, Washington, D.C 20036. Viewing the Opposite Sex How do young females and males view nude pictures of the opposite sex? Quite differently, according to John Stanffer and Richard Frost of Babson College, Boston. Some weeks ago these two researchers disclosed in the Journal of Communication the results of their survey to determine if men and women possess similar interests in parallel features of sexually oriented magazines. One hundred persons, ages 16 to 23, average age 19, examined copies of Playboy and Playgirl. As expected, twice as many males as females gave high ratings to centerfolds, photo essays, cartoons and other sexually oriented features. A whopping 90% of the males found frontal nudity "appropriate." Only 60% of the females did so. Moreover, 80% of the females said they would not buy a copy of Playgirl; 84% of the males said they would buy Playboy. ROMANIAN GYMNAST NADIA COMANECI The World's Greatest Ever hear of Nadia Comaneci? Nadia is a 14-year-old Romanian gymnast who makes Olga Korbul look like an amateur. A few months ago, competing in Canada, Nadia established a record never before achieved. In six of eight exercises she received the perfect score of 10. Horst Gohr, a West German gymnastics trainer, recognized as an authority in the field, says: "This girl is incredible. In two years no one in the world will be able to compete against her. She is in a class all by herself." How did Nadia ascend this pinnacle? At age 5 she was one of about 100 Romanian girls who are chosen each year for their athletic potential. From that point on she belonged to the state. Nadia was turned over to trainer Bela Karoly, who explains: "We put these special youngsters through rigorous tests, and we choose the best. Nadia has been training three hours a day, five days a week, ever since she was 5, and naturally she has become devoted and dedicated to her work. "In return for this dedication, she has been rewarded with trips to Canada and America. She is one of the very few girls in Romania who has visited Disneyland." Nadia is destined to become an Olympic standout. Life After Death What happens to a person Ihe next moment offer the heart stops beating?
