NEW YORK () - The highn
cost of attending college, always ac
cause of frantic figuring and fi-
nancial juggling by parents, is
hurting even more this year.
Most parents and students weret
prepared for the high tuition andc
other costs of college life. But oth-r
ers were surprised by the difficul-2
ty of getting low-cost, delayed-
payment educational loans.
Some banks simply didn't have
the money to lend because of pre-r
vious commitments to profitable
interest rates elsewhere.
Although close to a billion dol-
lars is invested in student loant
programs - through government
plans administered by colleges,c
government loans administered by
banks, and straight loans to par-
ents - the demand has grownJ
fast. And money is tight.
Some Sold Stock
To obtain funds, some parents
have sold stock at a very inappro-
priate time - when prices have
dropped about 20 percent below
their heights of a few months ago.
Few parents and students are
going to permit themselves to be
caught again next year, but the
fact remains that without loans
some students simply won't be able
to attend college.

Three Billion in 1972
Hopefully, they will supply the
money. The First National City
Bank in New York estimates that
the billion dollars now available
will probably double in 1969 and
triple by 1972.
"I suggest that until 100 percent
of the nation's banks are involved
we will not have met our obliga-
tions in the public interest," says
J. Howard Laero, vice-chairman of
First National City.
Feikens told newsmen that he
felt the commission's policy of
holding hearings where Negroes
could air their problems before
u'ficials was more constructive
than street demonstrations.
He indicated disapproval of re-
cent demonstrations'staged in Chi-
cago and suburban Cicero by such
Negro leaders as Martin Luther
"I don't think you solve prob-
lems by posing hypothetical is-
sues,' he said. "Getting leaders to-
gether is a more effective way
than to hold marches.
