Carnival By MAJOR THOMAS M. NIAL , "Washington, July 21.--If you ] read this space last time you know, j that it mentioned three approach- j rug deadlines--two on insurance, | one on terminal leave pay. j July 31 is the deadline for easy j reinstatement of term insurance, no , matter how long it has been in a i state of lapse. August 31 is the j deadline for applying for terminal j leave pay. We never did get to the third t deadline, which concerns only a few persons--and not veteran* It's July 31. too. and 2t marks the end of the time during \\hich certain beneficiaries of NSLI may change the method by which they receive j their NSLI payments · Which beneficiaries" Those 11 ho started receiving NSLI payments, on account of the death of the insured, before Sept 30. 1944. Those beneficiaries had no choice of different kinds of settlements because at that time there weren't four options as there are today So they were given two years to switch from the settlement under which they started receiving the insurance to another settlement--the refund life income settlement. j The two years are up July 31. ; After that beneficiaries who started i getting their insurance before Sept. j 30. 144. will not be able to change 19 a refund life income settlement. The VA says it has tried to notify every beneficiary who might be affected and thinks it has succeeded It sent oat a letter telling each beneficiary he -or she' could change to the refund life income settlement. That settlement guarantees that the face value of the insurance will be paid out to some one--either to j me beneficiary or. if the beneficiary ' dies, to the second beneficiary. It also guarantees that if the beneficiary lives beyond the point at which the face value of the insur- j ance has been paid out he will keep on receiving monthly payments for the,rest of his life (A secondary | beneficiary gets only up to the face value.) If you are one of the affected beneficiaries you should write to vour Veterans Administration Branch Office to get details There are very fe-v beneficiaries in this ! c'sss. How many ex-servicers will be affected by the new ruling on avo- cational (or recreational 1 study courses under the GI Bill"* Congress tacked on an amendment to the VA appropriations bill which said that none of the appropriated money can be scent on GI Bill education if the VA administrator determines that the course of study is avocational--not connected with ihe veteran's occupation I talked to the manager of a large eastern VA regional office about this the other day He said he thought a lot of veterans would be affected, especially those who want to take Sight training It's still too early to say just what the story will be Undoubtedly such courses as dancing, bartending, piano lessons. learning how to fly a glider, etc.. are going to be cut back drastically. "Is there some window around here where I could bet on a horse to The VA has to move slowly on come in last?" this. It has to set up some kind of ! standards to determine whether a i course is reallv vocational--or just i avocational. One thing the Cen- . tral Office of the VA has made clear to me is that no cut and dried rules will be laid down Each request for a course of studv ivhich might be recreational will be judged on its own merits.

I Ned made a rather unusual sacrifice play. He led the four of hearts West had to go in with the queen If he had not Ned would have won Uie trick in dummy anyway West led back a spade.
