Survey Tells How

By SANDRA JOHNSON
Three University researchers have investigated how parents
pay for their children's college education and what effect this
has on their finances.
They also looked into parents' attitudes about college for
their children, and probed the anatomy of college costs, from
the parents' point of view.
They found that the average cost for an American student
to attend college for one year is $1,550.
Of this amount, parents pay the major share-$950. The
student himself earns an additional $360. Another $130 comes
from scholarships, and the final $110 is paid from "other
sources."
These figures have been published in a new study on "How
People Pay for College," by John B. Lansing, Thomas Lorimer,
and Chikashi Moriguchi of the Institute for Social Research.
"For years colleges have been estimating the amount it costs
a student to attend their school; but no one had ever investigated
college expenses from the parents' point of view," Lorimer said
Friday. "Therefore this study, which we began last September
at the request of the United States Office of Education is unique,"
he added.
"Because we wanted to investigate the parents' feelings about
college expenses, our study included only unmarried college stu-
dents who had at least one living parent."
Lpoking back on the financing pf their children's education;

about one-quarter of the parents interviewed felt it had been
difficult for them and that the job they did was not adequate.
Often these parents proved to be in the lower income groups.
When asked to explain why financing was difficult, over half of
these people who had difficulties said they found it hard to live
on a budget or to refrain from buying new things in order to
meet the expense of putting their children through college.
Others said that someone in the family had to work more
than they otherwise would have worked, or that some other event
such as illness or unemployment made the financial obligation
difficult to meet.
Another quarter of the parents interviewed said financing of
their children's educations was both easy and adequate. This
quarter is found predominately in the upper income groups.
Children Finance
In approximately ten per cent of the cases where the parents
had no difficulty, the children financed their own education.
About the same number received outside help from the G.I.
Bill or from scholarships. Another group found it easy because
the children lived at home and the cost of their education was
low.
Although the parents' contribution, to their son or daughter's
education average $950 the actual amount varies substantially
from one family to the next, the study points out.
The survey results show that this variation depends upon
the income of the family, the level of education of the parents

FROM DIXIE:
Rights Leaders
Meet in Atlanta
By THOMAS HAYDEN
Editor
Special to The Daily
ATLANTA - Top leaders of the civil rights movement from
15 Southern and border states converged here this weekend to
assess the results of their crusade and plan a broader assault on
segregation in all areas.
They meet this morning in general sessions to consider the
application of direct action techniques against segregation in drug
and department stores, restaurants, rest rooms, beaches, schools,
churches, voting places, recreation facilities and public transportation.
The three-day conference was hosted by the Student Non-Violent

Coordinating Committee created
U.S. Shifts
Stand in UN
UNITED NATIONS (MP) - The
United States was understood yes-
terday to be keeping the door open
to enlargement of the 10-nation
disarmament committee if UN de-
bate should show a majority in
favor of that.
But while the United States
might agree to the addition of
five more countries to the com-
mittee, this did not necessarily
mean it would accept all the five
that the Soviet Union has pro-
posed to add.
The issue will come up soon in
the Assembly's Political Commit-
tee, when a Soviet resolution is
pending to put Ghana, India, In-
donesia, Mexico and the United
Arab Republic on the disarmament
committee.
The Soviet idea is to supple-
ment the Eastern and Western
sides on the negotiating body with
a neutral side of equal strength.
The United States view, as
authoritatively reported, repre-
sents a shift from the position
taken at the 1959 Geneva for-
eign ministers' conference of
Britain, France, the Soviet Union
and the United States.
So the committee was set up
with a membership of five Com-
munist countries - Bulgaria,
Czechoslovakia, Poland, Romania
and the Soviet Union-and five
Western-allied countries-Britain,
Canada, France, Italy and the
United States.

last April in Raleigh, N. C. to

students who participated in lunch
counter sit-ins and other protest
demonstrations.
Expand Impact
Among the significant confer-
ence developments so far is the
indication that Negro adult com-
munities are preparing to poin
students in expanding the impact
of mass action.
Rev. Ralph Abernathy of Mont-
,;gomery. Ala., one of the leaders
of the Southern Christian Leader-
ship Conference, said yesterday
that Southern adults will be "pre-
paring to join in a massive flesh
and blood action by Jan. 1. "We
have been idle too long while the
students have acted."
Martin Luther King, head of
SCLC, and symbol of Southern
non-violent direct action, also
sees the need for more adult in-
volvement. "There is a danger in
the 'student movement' since it
suggests that adults are not neces-
sary," he warned. "This movement
must become a comunity move-
ment, cented in the urban areas
where the Negroes have created
power and mobility."
Election Day Action
Massive direct action is next
expected on election day, Nov. 8.
The conference is expected to ap-
prove a resolution today, calling
for a national demonstration at
the polls to illustrate the disen-
franchisement of many Southern
Negroes. In the meantime, stu-
dents will continue maneuvers,
designed to focus attention on
discriminatory practices in their
localities.
The emphasis, in other words,
has expended beyond its original
center, the lunch counters. "This
is somewhat good," United States
National Student Association Pre-
sident Richard Rettig feels, "since
