Kuchersky and Pavlov still
have 50 relatives in Russia,
but neither have any desire in
returning to visit the Soviet
Union. Kuchersky writes his
relatives letters about his life
and accomplishments in-
America but they do not
believe him since, as he says,
"the Soviet media portrays

America as a land for the
rich, where a poor man can-
not succeed."

Kuchersky quickly adds,
"As long as you are willing to
work and are not a quitter,
there is opportunity here. I

COLLEGE AHEAD?

PARENTS, GRANDPARENTS

HEAR TAX ATTORNEY ROBERT KASS DISCUSS' -_
TAX-WISE FUNDING OF COLLEGE COSTS

Robert Kass, a tax partner with the Detroit law firm of Barris, Scott, Denn &
Driker, will discuss ways to stretch your college funding dollars on April 4th at 7:00
P.M. at the Radisson Hotel, Southfield.
"It takes more than good grades to get through college," Kass said. "College
costs are rising faster than inflation, many loan sources have dried up, and tax laws
including the new 'kiddie tax' have penalized children's savings accounts.

Mr. Kass, an experienced estate planner, will clearly point out the relative ad-
vantages and disadvantages of various funding alternatives, including the new Series
EE U.S. Savings Bond, the Michigan Education Trust, irrevocable trusts, zero coupon
bonds, tax exempt investments, and other tax strategies that parents and grandparents
can use to maximize returns.
There is no charge to attend the meeting, sponsored by
Shearson Lehman Hutton, but space is limited and reservations are required.
Refreshments will be served.
