A rude awakening
Remember that trip to California last June? Or that back-packing
espedition up north in August? Or that high paying job at Dad's office?
And all that free time? Well, you'd better forget it pronto and roll out bed
bright and early, because today the vacation officially ends. We hope you
enjoy that first day of class!
We're always looking for new blood down here at the Daily, and this
year's no exception. We're cold-type now, and we're expanding, so we need
folks with a yen for newspaper work to check us out. Whether your fancy is
newswriting, photography, sportswriting, editing, display, reviewing con-
certs or selling ads, our publication will welcome you with open arms.
Open doors, too. In fact, you can drop by our second floor offices at 420
Maynard on Monday night, Sept. 19 at 7:30. That night, as the wire
machines clatter out the news from around the globe, we'll offer a
bounty of Daily representatives who will discuss with you our favorite
topic-the Daily! We think you'll like it.
The collector cometh
Since September is the beginning of school for most of us, it's only
fitting that the federal government has decided to crack down on students
who failed to repay those government-insured loans which helped them
foot their tuition bills and take home diplomas. The Office of Education-
an arm of the government-says it will turn over loans totalling about
$430 million to private collection agencies in hopes that the agencies will
have better luck reaping the past due debts than the government. Roughly
390,000 persons have failed to pay back the loans since the program began
nine years ago. Such loans are offered by private lending firms but are
insured-or co-signed-by Uncle Sam. Once the private collectors obtain
the files of delinquent borrowers, their credit ratings could be jeopardized.
But Uncle Sam has a soft heart, it seems, and everyone will have a last
chance to pay. "We'want to give them a chance to pay because, if their
files go to the collectors, we want them to know that they are getting into
said Leo Kornfeld, deputy commissioner for student loans at HEW.
Kornfeld explained that such niceties as mortgages, credit cards and car
loans could be in danger if the debts are not repaid. So if you know someone
who ripped off the U.S. for a free ride through academia, wasrn that
person about ,the impending debt collector. Uncle Sam, you know, won't be

WASHINGTON (AP - With the ink
barely dry on the new Panama Canal
treaties, Ronald Reagan and other con-
servative opponents opened a cam-
paign yesterday to block Senate
ratification of the pacts.
Reagan said the agreement to turn
the canal over to the Panamanians will
weaken the United States as an inter-
national power and increase chances
that the Panamanians will seize control
of the waterway before the year 2000,
when U.S. control is to end.
"THERE IS NO way this will be seen
as magnanimous," the former Califor-
nia governor said. "It will be seen as a
further retreat by the United States."
Reagan's testimony before a Senate
judiciary subcommittee hearing came
as the two chief U.S. negotiators for the
treaties were testifying before a House
International Relations Committee.
Sol Linowitz and Ellsworth Bunker
said Congress will be asked to approve
$345 million in economic aid for Pana-
ma, including $50 million for canal de-
Asked what the United States would
get in return for the aid, Linowitz said,
"The most important thing we get is en-
hanced assurance of an open, ac-
cessible, secure canal."
LIA.owitz said the Carter ad-
ministration believes both houses of
Congress must approve parts of the
agreement, including the aid package
and provisions to turn over police
jurisdiction in the Canal Zone. But the
Senate alone has the responsibility for
ratification, he said.

*'WASHINGTON (AP - The United
States and Canada agreed yesterday to
construct a 2,700-mile pipeline across
Canada to bring natural gas from
Alaska to the lower 48 states.
The Canadian route was chosen over
a competitive land-sea route because it
will save U.S. consumers an estimated
$6 billion in fuel costs, do less damage
tTrthe environment and provide greater
safety, President Carter said.
)CARTER AND Canadian Prime Min-
ister Pierre Elliott Trudeau announced
igreement on the $10 billion project af-
ter meeting for an hour in the Oval Of-
tee. Both praised the project as an ex-
aiple of American-Canadian coopera-
'This joint undertaking will be the
Largest private energy project in
story," they noted in a statement.
.The American-Canadian pipeline'
lpuld run alongside the Alaska oil pipe-
be before turning east along the
11aska Highway. It then would cross
016 rugged Yukon and enter Canada's
.,The pipeline would split into two
Branches before entering the lower 48
Mates. One branch would carry natural
s as far east as Chicago. The other
branch would serve the West Coast, en-
dig in California.
