XIAL i Washington. July 1 -- Summer va- j cations for most school and col- j Icge \ eteran-studenti are under I way. Mobt ichouU lei out the firxt i part of June, \vont itart again un- ' til September. In ;-pite of thit the 'Guide" Is getting lots of letters, asking about the leave-v, nh-pjy rules and regulations of -he Veterans Admin-j- tratiorv. Ex-servicer'S kno\v they , are entitled to bubiiitence alJov.- i ance for up to 20 days a year while , they are out of school. They want , to kcow when they can take that ; !eave-with-pay and how to apply for it Actually, ^jcation v. ith subsistence allowance can be taXen any tisne at all, provided the school f gives permission I mean, it could be taken theoretically, right :n the middle of the school ear -- if the school i-jici cka . Chance-) are the school v. ouldn't. unless the student wa; exceotion-jl- !v bright if a \e:cran"s murkb went below par owing to a :md- ·-ubsistcnce allowance coines for those two weeks. If you don't notify the VA et least three weeks in advance you niay be taken off the subsistence lolls as are all students at the end of a term i. Then it might take a month or s-o to get you back on again, which means you wouldn't get the allowance to cover your vacation until after the vacation was over Some ichxL have veter«tr.»' ad\ lijors v, ho either are stationed right at the school 'the very large ones' or come around for a visit periodically. They're the people to talk to about vacations v. ith pay. Any official of your school should know how to get in touch with them. One thing else--every day ou ipend on a vacation and draw subsistence allowance is one less dav you can use in school under the GI Bill If %ou are entitled to the full four years of GI Bill education. and you take a 30-day vacation with allowance each of the four years, your total time in school will be four yeai-s less four months. That's something to think about If If V You probably read in the paper about tfce recent Supreme Court decision on the retention rights veterans have in Civil Service employment. The court upheld the procedure which the Csvil Service Commission has been following but which was «-haIlenged by a r.on- veteran. Heres what it amounts to: if a permanent C. S. veteran em- ploye has a rating of "good' or better than good he will be kept on the job. in cases of enforced layoffs, and the non-veteran will get the brush. That's true even if the veteran has only three years with C. S. and tne non-veteran has 1° --or 20-years seniority. Same thing holds true for a war- I service C. S. appointee. The veteran war-service employe will stay hi the job over the non-veteran war-service appointee--provided his rating is "good" or better. Likewise, the temporary ap- i peintee who is a veteran gets re- j tention-preference over the tempo- 1 rary non-veteran. Now that the i Supreme Court has ruled on this | question there can be no change-' unless the law itself changes. Dumbest Shark Court* Death Ami Meets It II DEATHS IfE TO HEAT Chicago, June 30 J?--Hot. sticky collar-wilting weather clung to the eastern seaboard sis es t o d a y , causing at least 11 deaths attributed to high temperatures and summer storms. A mass of comparatively cool. ; dry air moved across the midwest from the plains states. Weather forecasters said i: might bring relief to the east in a day or two Temperatures were seasonable on the -A est coast and slightly ab' ove normal in the "lains states. Fort Myers, Fla.

Charlie Knapp and | Truman Wilson weren't having ' much luck until Knapp got a strik* . and hauled in a 100-pound shark:-' He y the shark loose with the hook still in its mouth. Minutes later Bickel got a hard strike and pulled in the same shark, with the hook still in its ·mouth. Again it was cut loose and only minutes later Wilson got a strike--yep. the same shark. , This time they killed it.
