foge Six HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Wednesday, September It/ False Teeth Surplus Is Declared By JANE EADS ' Washington — The government has more than 2.000,000 single false rear teeth that the War Assets Administration has declared surplus. They were made under a lend lease contract for shipment, mostly to Russia. It looks as it the government bit off more than it could chew, because the teeth never were sent. "And they're chattering around i government storerooms waiting for someone to buy them. The government had loads of other false teeth too. But those were attached and in sets. They were grabbed up by the Veterans' Administration for use in government hospitals. On the other hand. WAA had no trouble getting rid of a human skull, declared surplus by the Quartermaster Corps at Cahp Silbert, Ala. H had been used by army dental technicians and cost the government Sip.

American ingenuity has found new uses for many strang« items offered for sale as government- owned surplus to civilians. ^Chester Chinn. Chinese-American war veteran of Portland.

Sept. 10 —(>?)— Junior colleges — Iherc arc about 630 in Ihis country — this year will take in a record number of students: 35.1,000. : • . . . . 1 Every state except Nevada has at least one junior college, according to the American Association of Junior Colleges. The greatest number are in the eastern states. There are many in the middle west, where Ihe first public junior college was slarted in Joliet. .111., in 1902. But California, with 76, leads all states in the number of such schools. The AAJI says the nation's junior colleges — bill hardly any of Ihose in Ihe east — still have room this fall for about 25,000 to 30.000 studenls. Many people may wonder: What is a .Junior college? Why go to one? What does it do? ' Some junior colleges have 'our- year courses: The lasl two years of high school and the equivalent of the first two years in college. But most — and this story will deal only with this group — take in only high school graduales and give them two years of schooling. A junior college can't give the kind of degree a college can give, like bachelor of arts or bachelor of science. It docs give a degree —called an associate degree — like an associate in arls. This is upon com- plelion of two years 1 work. Generally, junior colleges give this kind of education: 1. A general course, the 'irst two years of the tradilional college courses. .2. Special business courses.. These prepare a sludent for. some special kinu cT work, like secretarial work, v/ilding, drafting, mining, printing. Take No. 1, the general course. This is equivalent to the freshman and sophomore years in college. Having finished Ihis course a student can go on to a senior college to finish his junior uiiiJ senior years and get his rujuiiai degree but— Anyone intending to Stan ii. . junior college and finish in a a^u ior one, had better :"ind out "ay whether the senior college ot l.i; choice will consider the junior col lege as equivalent to its own firsi two years. Some do, some doii'i Now take No. 2, the special in, r.ess courses. A student taking a special course — like secretarial work or weld ing — may get additional stuuieb in English or science or physical education. This will give him some education in addition to what he has hud in high school. Many junior colleges are set in a community with the idea ol training the students — those who take the business courses —in ;iobs which that community can provide But why should anyone who wants a four-year regular college course go lo a junior college at all? This is the explanation given at the AAJC offices here: If there's a junior college in a student's home area, where he can so as a day student for two years, he'll save money. But if there's no saving of money, he'd do just as well to go straight Ihrough the senior college from the start. Junior colleges also provide—-for those who want a general (ourse but can't afford to go four' years to college — the equivalent of the freshman and sophomore yc^rs,,in college. j • V And for a student who doesn't know whether he wants' to go to college for four years, two.-.y '' ~ in a iunior college — it it's'chj! for. him to go thorc-^.. -: wilfc t . mm tfme 'To'Vn'alOSHJjJ'rris'-'liiilivi. o , .... -.

Tried out yesterday for the first time on a commcrcia.1 airliner, the Gyropilot took over controls of the Dig plane, brought it into the airfield on a graceful glide, lowered ,t at 300 feet per minute to within ten feet or so of the runway. The day was fair, but the same procedure could have been followed if the ceiling were zero. It was not necessary for the "robot 1 pilot to land the plane, although it also can do that trick.
