" : By Rowland Kvaiu Jr. (For Clarke Beach WASHINGTON — The Veterans Administration (VA) has warned veterans that the gate to education and training under the OI Bill will he locked July 25, 1951. All Inside the program by that date can stay there until their entitlement runs out or until their "course" ends or until July 25. 1956, whichever comes first. Most others will stay outside. One reason for this move undoubtedly was the howl brought on last fall when the VA put out a pre-datcd regulation, known as l-A. although Its bad timing was not the only reason. (The strongest objection to Is what that it compelled all veterans wanting to change a course was "essential" to employment.) The VA Is taking no chances on the possibility of any veteran's misinterpreting the significance of the July 25. 1951, deadline. In a long report sent to Congress Jan. 25 the VA took six closely-typewritten pages to present its interpretation of the cut-off date; It recognises that the GI Bill could be interpreter several ways with regard to that date. The language In the law goes UiL 1 ! way: ". . . That such course shal he Initiated not later than foui years after either the dale of (a veteran's) discharge or after the termination of the present war whichever is later." The "tormina lion of the war" for this purpose 1- July 25, 1947, so there Is no prob lem there. Pour years later Is July 25, 1951. (Almost all veterans v.-cn discharged before July 25. 1947.) But what, the VA wondered, dii Congress mean by "initiate course"? It decided it meant tha a veteran would have to be In o working on an education or trainin course by that date (unless he is i a "normal" vacation period, or I sick, etc.) Getting' a certificate o eligibility with the Intention of en tering a course would not do: Suppose a veteran is taking a col Icge course today. He gets his de gree next June and goes to worl He works for a little more than year and then decides he needs course In accounting. So in Augus lf>51, he goes to the VA and asks fo a supplemental certificate of cllg bijity to enter an accounting cotlrs He thinks that since he "Initial ed" a course of study (his colic course) long before the July ? 1951, deadline he certainly has con piled with the law anrt can rcen ter training after that date. But h can't. The new regulation forbi rogress and it's not his own fault, The course to which lie wants to langc fits his aptitudes and prcv- ius education. 3. The new course ould be a "normal progression" nd would allow him to achieve his ducalional or training objective. Swallows Return on' Time To Mission of Capistrano SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif..

CAP) — An eight-foot boa constrictor gave birth to 30 wriggling snakes at a pet shop last night to the amazement of monkeys inside and spectators outside the store. The mother had Just arrived the day before from South America for delivery to a snake collector. The proprietor, James M. Coker, said it was the first time he had heard of a boa constrictor having young in captivity. Tiie store was closed at the time, but startled passers-by told police of the blessed event. Coker was called from church to Uike over. He found the 18-inch youngsters crawling all over his shop and that two excited monkeys had turned over their cage. That's not all. Once a "course" of study or other training ends after the July 25, 1951, deadline, a veteran will have a very hard time getting Into another, even though he can show he was studying or training as the deadline passed by.
