Dunson Explains < 4f^%, C.';"- ,r „ War Orphans >-,>/t' * i , " Education Law '"There appears to be considerable confusion concerning the entitlement of many war orphans to educational assistance, as provided 'by federal laws," Riley Dunson, veterans service officer, declared this week. Hejaisot'/guve a clarification of five "major areas of misunderstanding, which he 'believes may be keeping eligible children of 'deceased service men or veterans from applying for educational benefits. , 1. The fact that one parent still lives makes some children believe that they do not qualify as "orphans." For this (benefit, an "orphan" is a child 1 whose veteran-parent is 'dead as the result of a wound, accident, or illness attributed to service in the Armed Forces of the United States. 2. 'The fact that the dead parent had no wartime service makes others believe they are Ineligible. If the - veteran-parent's death resulted from the performance of dutly or from extra-hazardous service during a period of peacetime service, the child is eligible. 3. The fact that they are married makes some believe they are no longer "children" under this law.

He is well enough to be out anid around again. Visiting him while he was ill were a daughter and her family, Mr. and Mrs. Jim Cabbell and children, Jimmy and Joby, of Kermit. not affect eligibility under the war orphans program, Any son or daughter of a serviceman or veteran, whose death Is attributable tto his service as but- lined in item 2 above, is eligible for the educational benefits provided he or she is between 18 and 23 years of age. There are some exceptions 1 to these age limits and full details may be obtained from Veterans Service officers or from -the Veterans Administration. 4. The fact that their living parent, usually their mother, •has remarried and their stepfather has legally adopted them makes some children believe they are ineligible. In reality, the marriage of the living (parent; and the subsequent adoption does not affect the eligibility of the children. Under the law, a child of the veteran remains a child of the veteran, regardless of .the fact that the child may be legally adopted by someone else. 5, The fact that many children do not wish, nor are they prepared for education at the college level makes some believe they cannot take advantage of this benefit. Although training for a high school diploma is not permitted, eligible children may take vocational courses and other non-college training that will help them earn a living. In many instances, children are eligible for educational assistance under the provisions 'of the War Orphans Program, although for some reason or other they have not applied for benefits. Even though it aplpears from first study of the fact tihat a child does not meet the provisions of the law, it is still incumbent upon us as Service Officers to encourage the filing of any application. The VA is permitted to make an official determination only after a formal application has beem received from a claimant. Urge these children and their mothers to file application for War Orphans benefits. Gas was first commercially produced and consumed in Texas at Corsicania in 1901.

Though it is possible to sup- i ply on'ly a small portion of the total nutrition needed by the plant] in this manner, he adds, if a foliar fertilizer spray is applied at precisely the right time, outstanding results can be -obtained. Research conducted to correct .s|pecific nutrient deficiencies and to provide nutrients at critical growth periods have proven beneficial. Almost all crops respond to a foliar spray of nitrogen, and show a slight response to phosphorus and potassium, according to Regier. He also says that crops in many areas of the state respond to foliar application of certain micronutrients, like iron and zinc. He continues that (probably the greatest value of foliar feeding plants would be with crpps where certain deficiencies can be corrected easiily by spray treatments, where spray- ng is already an established )ractice, where total leaf areas are large, and where there is a great demand for nutrients at a certain time; such as dur- ng flowering and' fruiting. Precautions for foliar applications that Regier lists .include limiting the fertilizer salti content to 2%, because leaves can be damaged by high salt concentrations 1 . He also advises that certain plants, especially strawberries, should not receive foliar sprays during the icavy blooming (period.
