News For the third time In less than three months, the nation's veterans & servicemen are beneficiaries of substantial savings on interest on home loans guaranteed by the Veterans Administration. Administrator of Veterans Affairs Donald E. Johnson noted payments on a typical loan, as a result of the latest reduction to 7 per cent effective Feb. 18, would be about $21 per month less than they were before they were reduced .frorti the peak 8.5 per cent Interest rate last Dec. During the life of the loan, savings would amount to approximately $7,500. Johnson explained that these savings are based on the average $24,600 loan on new homes, and the average $20,000 loan on existing homes over a 30-year financing period. Mortgage Interest rates were reduced from 8.5 to 8 per cent last Dec. 2, from 8 to 7.5,per cent on Jan. 13, and.from 7.5 to 7 per cent on Feb. 18. The VA administrator commented that after the reduction of the interest rate to 7.5 per cent In January, there was an Immediate response from veterans who wanted to own their own homes. "We believe there will now be an even greater stimulus to home ownership, builders, and the construction labor market with the new 7 per cent Interest rate," he said. VA guarantees 60 per cent up to a maximum of $12,500, whichever is less, of home loans to veterans and servicemen. Veterans of World War U and the Korean Conflict who have served at least 90 days of military duty, as well as those who served at least 181 days after Jan. 31, 1955 are eligible for home loan benefits, provided they have not previously used them. Also eligible for these benefits are veterans discharged for service-connected disabilities, regardless of length of service, widows of eligible veterans, and wives of members of the Armed Forces missing in action.

The answer Is jug (or sometimes called detention). Jug is an after-school class or session of those who have done something offensive to the school rules. This includes being late for class, talking or just breaking any of the school's regulations. (Grammar schools are fortunate as most of them don't have a detention system.) Some teachers have become "jug happy" at my school If they send you out of their class, it costs you 2 nights of jug and 2 demerits. One teacher of mine hands out jug like he's handing out cigars. He gets a certain type of "inner happiness" when he gives someone three nights of jug. One friend of mine, who was in a far corner of the room near the door, sat listening to a reading of "The Raven". When the reader got to the part where It read, "rapping, rapping at my chamber door", my friend gently rapped on the classroom door. The teacher, who found that gesture amusing, told my friend to pack up his books and leave the room. Another Incident of this type was in a senior class. A teacher became very ' mad when he found out that some of his students weren't working hard because they've already been accepted at a college. He went up and down the aisles asking every student if he was going to work. He came to the last pupil and asked him if he planned to work In school. He dumfoundedly replied "Well, I don't know sir, I don't know". "Out!, Out! said the teacher as he pointed to the back door. I know that a few years ago, there were some kids at my school who were In jug nearly every day. But last year, the disciplinarian initiated a certain rule that after 10 jugs, every jug after that, counted as a demerit. If you accumulate 15 demerits, your parents are notified and if you get 25 demerits, you're subject to expulsion. So now, If a person got jug every day, he would be expelled after about a month and a half. Detentions are probably the most powerful weapons that teachers have to control their classrooms. If they didn't have the power to give them, teachers would have to return to physical har.m to maintain quiet. I don't know if I'd rather be knocked around by the dean of discipline, which would only last a few minutes or stay after school for an hour and write. Big Savings Buy Now and Save.
