Sabbath Observers Urged to Plan Now for Aptitude,
Scholarship Tests on Days Other Than Saturdays
Sabbath observers who plan to
take any of the major college en-
trance, aptitude or scholarship
tests during the coming year
should make arrangements early
to take these tests on a day other
than Saturday, the Jewish Com-
munity Council urged this week.
Testing centers and school coun-
selors can provide assistance in
making these arrangements.
In a memorandum to rabbis,
youth organizations and communal
schools, Walter E. Klein, the Coun-
cil's executive director, requested
the assistance of these groups and
individuals in alerting young people
who may be affected to the neces-
sity of acting with care and dis-
patch to insure that they will have
an opportunity to take the exami-
nations on a day which will not
conflict with the Sabbath.
Many college boards as well
as the Scholastic Aptitude Test
and National Merit Scholarship
exam are given on a Saturday.

Here's a wonderful idea for those special
occasions when you want to give something
meaningful . . . an American Savings gift
account. Wedding, new arrival, graduation,
bar mitzvah, birthday or general congratu-
lations . . . tell us the occasion and we'll
give you an appropriate, beautifully de-
signed folder (no charge, of course) con-
taining a brand new American Savings
passbook. Made out in the lucky recipient's
name, it will be credited with whatever
amount you've chosen to give. You'll have
the satisfaction of knowing you've started
orfurthered that young person in the good
habit of saving. And American Savings will
add to your gift each year by paying liberal
earnings on every dollar in their account.
You're not likely to ever find a gift that
w'll be more appreciated or one that will
