This paper has always maintained that any student .who wants to go to college badly enough can go —4ii,.spite of skyrocketing costs of a college educations - •': • .•••;•'. :',''.." It may be a little late for seniors to start, so this editorial is directed to juniors and those below. However, there are opportunities still open for seniors. Financially; more and more doors are opening to the boys and girls who seriously want to go to college, but it still isn't easy. Scholastically, it is getting harder and harder to be accepted. Scholarships always have been the .backbone of help through college, and every college has its own program of scholarships, loans and grants. Information may be had for the asking and school administrators and counselors can help. There are publications listing all scholarships available in U. S. Colleges. It also remains that every year in September there are scholarships available that were not taken. One of these may be in your field. There is a correlary, however, that the student is going to have to produce something in the way of scholastic achievement and performance to convince the college it wants him as a student. Nor does it mean you can go to the college you have your heart set on. But there are other fine colleges and once you are part of their life, you'll be proud indeed to go there. This has been the case all through the years. The most elaborate scholarship program is the National Merit Scholarship Program, which each year offers scholarships to 1,500 students ranging in value from $100 to $1,500 per year based on individual need. Besides this 175 sponsors currently award additional scholarships. The 10th annual merit tests come up March 10 and 14, and are open to high school juniors. A student interested should tell his principal or counselor and get things started. Besides the finalists and 14,000 semi-finalists, an additional 35,000 boys and girls in October will receive letters of commendation and become eligible for certain services available through the merit program. The mere fact that a student is on one of these three lists will help him get into college or get another scholarship grant. Both white and Negro students participate. In the last few years, banks have set up college loan programs that are most liberal and which are made either to the student Or his parents, and may cover up to four years of college work. The provisions of other scholarships, including the popular athletic scholarships, vary with the school and the donor of the grant, and have to be checked on. .This barely skims the surface. There still remains tnat most effective method of using your own God- given ingenuity and getting yourself a job to pay your way through school. The main thing is that you can't start too earlv It is not a matter for the senior year alone. let's Hope for a Cloudy Day New Regulations INCOME TAX RULE REVIEW NOW WILL SAVE MONEY , COLLEGE STATION.—Soon it will be time to start to work on your income tax report, says Mrs. Wanda B.

This is probably a smart move, because if Khrushchev sends some armed technicians to Panama, we can show that we said al'l the time the old ditch is worn out and not worth fighting for. But the talk about digging a new canal may give us a little breathing spell, while the world predators wait to see whether they want the new one or the old one, or both. I see where the Federal Trade Commission is talking about making the cigarette companies print a warning on the packages, saying that smoking is dangerous. Which seems like in the public interest, as people ought to be entitled to know it when they are taking a chance." My luck-pushing neighibor says the people-wardens will likely get around some day to seeing ,to it that warning labels are put on all t,he other items that are hazardous when misused, such as cars and women. ing business doesn't alwaye qualify a fellow, either. And it couM be the Senate has been needing members like an astronaut who knows how to go around in circles to some useful purpose, and a football coach who can see that you've got to -win a game now and then to stay in the league. I see some big headlines in the papers about how it's.said that an insurance salesman once gave President Johnson a stereo set free when he bought a big policy. My power-itchy neighbor says he has thought about running for President, but guesses he had better not because it would be such a big job to clean up his past. Says he never would be able to find and pay back all of the selling-class people who have conflicted his interest by slipping free stuff to him oil the side via trading'stamps.

Baptist Expand Missionary Work The Southern Baptist Convention, Nashville, Tenn., has voted to establish missionary work in Iceland, Luxembourg, and Austria. An officer of the Convention explains that in each of the, three countries the work would begin with an English-language ministry but that "efforts will also be made to extend Baptist witness beyond this." The National Church of Iceland has been Lutheran since the 16th century Reformation, and nearly the entire population is counted in its membership. Austria and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg are overwhelmingly Roman Catholic countries with Protestant minorities that are mostly Lutheran. •••••••••1M11J9 Dr. M. V.
