U. officials Defense Student Loan Program In order to correct a misconception that might occur from recent news items from the Federal government concerning the National Defense Student Loan program, Upper Iowa university officials make the following statement. "One may infer from the recent publicity that colleges receive and benefit directly from this program. This is a misconception. A college may participate in this program by providing a portion of the total amount loaned to students. In reality Upper Iowa has contributed an excess in $12,000 to this fund which is then loaned to needy students who wish to attend college. "A total of 155 students at Upper Iowa have participated in the National Student Defense Loan Program since its beginning in 1958. "During the first year of operation, 17 students borrowed a total of $4,240 to pay toward part of their college expenses. Each following year the number of students participating in the program has increased. The number of students borrowing from the Federal Government and the total amount received are as follows: 1959 - 46 students, $22,040; 1960 - 48 students, $31,390; and 1961 - 97 students, $58,270. "A full time student may borrow up to $1,000 per year, with the maximum amount loaned totaling $5,000. Students borrowing from the loan program must be strong academic students. Special consideration is given to students with interests in the sciences, modern foreign languages or those planning to enter the teaching profession. "In addition to the NSDFL program, Upper Iowa has two revolving loan programs. The Carrie E. Barden loan fund and the Paul N. Turner loan provide an additional $20,410.75 from which students may borrow. "All of these funds are merely loan programs and there is no money that comes to the college except through the students to pay their, college expenses. ;gular bowling season for the Fayette men's league at the Lilac Lanes in West Union ended Wednesday, March 28, The Standard Oil team finished in first placfi with 77 wmis «nd .'« losses, six points ahead of the second place theater team.
