Draftees' and Veterans'Guidt Must Show Course of Study Is Vocational in Nature By MAJOR THOMAS M. NIAL This is important to any World war II veteran who thinks he may want to take a single-type course of study under the BI bill, today or in the future. No single type course can be taken, you see, unles you can show that it is vocational in nature, not avocational. We've been through this before, and you probably remember that a vocational course of study is one directly connected with your wage earning or career plans and an avocational course one not connected with your job or career. Congress passed a law last summer outlawing all avocational courses. It maintained that the GI ^bill was never intended to supply dancing lessons or flying lessons or jiu-jitsu to a veteran who wanted to take them just for the fun of it. < "A Tough Job" So after the law was passed the veterans administration looked for ways to administer it. It's been a tough job, as any VA worker will tell you. Here's the way they went about it: A veteran wanting to take a HERE and THERE Garner—Clarence Norman of Des Moines and C. J. Knapp of Waterloo were business visitors at the courthouse Tuesday. Stilson — Landheer of Mr. and Mrs. Dan Buffalo Center re- single course subject, or a group of subjects, must first get approval from his own regional office. If he doesn't already have his certificate of eligibility, he has to get that too. Say the regional office looks at his case and decides that on the surface there is no apparent connection between the course and the veteran's employment. It then writes him that in order to get approval he must submit "complete justification" that the course he wants to take is tied in with his present or future employment plans—that there is a direct connection between the two. And here is the first place a lot of veterans are doing themselves an iniustice. They aren't submitting the "complete justification." They simply write back that they've always wanted to take this particular course, that they think they will do well in it, etc., etc. Prove Course Aid to Vocation But they don't attempt to establish an economic or professional relationship between the course and their job. Proof that the course will be an aid to the job is the very best kind of "complete justification" there is. Well, when the VA registration officer gets hold of what many vets submit as "complete justification" he often has to decide that the course has not been proved to be vocational and that therefore he cannot approve it. So he writes the veteran and explains L that if he wants to take the course he must go through advisement and guidance, which can be arranged by his VA regional office. Should Request Guidance cently visited in the home of Mr. and Mrs. ,W. B. Richardson. Stacyville—Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hartnell entertained recently for Dr. and Mrs. Joe Blong of Dyersville and Dr. and Mrs. Burton Hartnell and Miss Ann Neilly of Charles City. Manly—Mr. and Mrs. Joe Yezek and sons Gary and Tommy left for California where they wil spend 6 weeks, most of which wil be near San Francisco. Hanlontown—Mr. and Mrs. Car Rooth of Hinsdale, 111., were recent guests at the homes of Mr and Mrs. L. H. Brown and Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Swartz here and Mr and Mrs. N. D. McEnelly in Mason City. Ackley—Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Haupt are the proud parents of a daughter born Dec. 29. Osage—Jacob Dasch, east of Osage, was taken by ambulance Tuesday morning to the University hospital, Iowa City, for treatment. Rudd—Mr. and Mrs. M. V. Secor and daughter Katherine of Wheaton, 111., called on Mrs. Florence Pomeroy, recently. M»»on City Gi«b«-G»ielle, Mn»n Cllr. U. J» n . 1949 Thompson Born Dec. 31, a daughter to Mr. and Mrs. Larry Lawson at the Municipal hospital at Forest City. Alexander—Word received from Pfc. Dennis Rathmann states that he is still stationed at San Diego, Cal., and is able to spend most of his weekends with his brother and family at Long. Beach. Dumont — Robert Uhlenhopp had his tonsils and adenoids removed recently at the Lutheran hospital in Hampton. Otranto—Mrs. W. A. Howard and children Danny and Kimbra left for New Orleans where they will embark for Panama to join Lt. Howard who is stationed there. Leland — Mr. and Mrs. Ellsworth Severson, Janet and Ross of Tracy, Cal., are visiting Mr. Severson's mother, Mrs. Isabelle Severson. Garner—The Garner Lions Minstrel committee met at the home of Dick Clark to make plans for the annual Lions minstrel to be staged Feb. 22 and 23. Swaledale—Mi-, and Mrs. Orville Salisbury of Rodman visited several days at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Bradshaw and fam- Rudd—Miss Wanda Frevert, who is a student nurse at St. Luke's hospital in Cedar Rapids, was a recent guest in the parental Mr. and Mrs. Aug. Frevert home south of Rudd. Here is the 2nd place many veterans are doing themselves an. injustice. A great many, advised that their "complete justification" isn't sufficient, just let the matter drop there. They never request advisement and guidance, or vocational counselling. Of those who do request and take the guidance, more than half are approved! This means that if your request for a course has been initially turned down you have a better than even chance to get it okayed by taking the advisement and guidance. Your regional office arranges this for you, scheduling the time and place for the guidance well in advance. As a matter of fact, you may have to wait up to a month before getting it. You can see, though, the wait may well be worth while. A hotel in St. Paul emphasizes an added service feature — its guests can choose between sleep- Ing under an electric blanket or a stack of regular ones.
