G.I. Education Bill Won't Affect
Present 'U' Enrollment Policies

......... ...' . . .." .. "1 .'....44..1.,'4.;. ., 1 .4.n:

The new G.I. education bill
signed into law by President John-
son on March 3 is not expected to
have any "great material effect"
upon the enrollment of the Uni-
versity, according to Assocate
Dean James Robertson of the
literary college.
Robertson noted that the bene-
fits of the bill, which extends
many educational opportunities to
veterans, may affect the com-
position of the student body, not
its numbers, due to the Univer-
sity's policy of limited admissions.
He does not foresee any raising of
admissions standards above their
current levels.
Robertson feels that the vet-
erans seeking education under the
bill will be spread over so many
other colleges and junior colleges
that the effect on the University
will be negligible.
Maximum Benefits
The bill will provide a maxi-
mum of up to-36 months of edu-
cational benefits with stipends of

$100 a month for veterans with
no dependents, $125 with one de-
pendent, and $150 with two or
more, for -all veterans who served
on active duty for more than six
months after January 31, 1955.
The benefits for veterans at-
tending school part time will be
scaled down. Veterans will be al-
lowed a maximum of eight years
from the date of their discharge
to complete their education.
According to the New York
Times, the Senate, acting under
pressure from veterans groups and
in the face of an upcoming elec-
tion, extended the bill's coverage
to all veterans, thus exceeding the
administration's initial request of
coverage for combat area vet-
It has been estimated that the
bill, which will cover approxi-
mately 5 million men, will cost
$327 million in its first year and
will increase to $500 million an-
nually for the next five years.
No Extra Cost
However, the President, in sign-
ing the bill noted that it should


pay for itself. He said, "The first
two GI bills cost $21 billion. Our
economists now estimate they re-
sulted in a return of some $60
billion in federal taxes for that
$21 billion invested."
In addition, the Veteran's Ad-
ministration is authorized to
guarantee home loans of up to
$7500 for veterans borrowing
from private lenders, and to ex-
tend direct loans of up to $17,500
for veterans in areas where private
loans are not available. In re-
sponse to this the VA raised the
acceptable interest rate from 5%/
per cent to 51/2 per cent to make
loans more available.
Further benefits include medical
care in VA hospitals for non-
service connected disabilities if
there is financial need, job coun-
seling, placement assistance, and
preference in federal jobs.
Gayle Wilson, associate director
of admissions, said that there
"might possibly be a change in
admissions policies caused by
greater competition," but he
doubts that this will come about.
Wilson noted that no great in-
crease in enrollments resulted
from the Korean War GI bill, and
since the current act presently
covers approximately the same
number of men, he foresees no real
However, Wilson added that an
increase in our commitments
might lead to a situation some-
what analogous to that after
World War II where great num-
bers of veterans entered college
under the then existing benefit
