News The 1,000 wives of American servicemen missing or captured In Vietnam make up only a small percentage of the 580,000 women eligible for educational benefits, home loands, or both from the Veterans Administration, John B. Naser, director of the VA Regional Office In Chicago, pointed out today. A law signed by the President last month made wives of servicemen listed for more than 90 days as missing In action, captured "or forcibly detained or Interned in the line of duty by a foreign government or power" eligible for VA home loan and educational programs. The largest group eligible for VA programs is 180,000 female veterans of World War 11 andthe Korean Conflict, Naser said. Their unused expired loan benefits were restored by law last October. Another 160,000 women now In service, or who served after Jan. 31, 1955, qualify under the cur- Tent GI Bill for monthly checks for educationsi purposes and for the home loan program with loans quaranteed up to 60 per cent with a maximum of $12,500. Under a new VA program 175,000 widows of deceased veterans can go to school, take tralft- lng or make home loans underVA programs. Some 8,230 thus far have taken advantage of these major programs. Wives of 64,000 permanently and totally disabled veterans are eligible-for VA educational benefits. Some 1,800 have participated so far. - Naser said women who think they may be eligible for benefits under any VA program are urged to contact the VA office at 2030 West Taylor Street in Chicago.
