One of the most frequently mis-
understood sections of the GI Bill of
Rights, according to W. L. Wallace
of the VA Guidance Center here, is
the distinction between the veterans
subsistence allowance and the allow-
ance for tuition and books.
The subsistence allowance is based
upon the calendar year; that is, the
veteran is eligible for as m a n y
months subsistence as he had time
in the service plus one year up to
a total of four years.
The tuition and supply allowance,
however, is based on a "school year"
of 34 weeks. In other words' the stu-
dent veteran is authorized to use the
$500 maximum allotment during the
normal school year of two terms.
There is roughly another half se-
mester left in the calendar year for
which the veteran is authorized the
tuition allowance at the normal rate
of $2.10 per day or approximately
Thus in the calendar year, an al-
lowance of $625 for supplies and tui-
tion is actually authorized.

In the GI Bill, too, is the little pub-
licized fact that veterans in school
are charged the out-state rates for
tuition. This, according to the VA,
was put into the law because the edu-
cation of veterans was assumed as a
federal government responsibility
and state institutions are not ex-
pected to pay a portion of the vet-
Should the tuition and supply ex-
pense of any in-state veteran amount
to more than the allotted maximum,
however, the law provides that his
tuition shall be reduced to normal
rates charged others-in-state stu-
dents, or at least a sufficient amount
to bring him within the quota.

Plan Explanation Drive
Willow Villagers will be given the
opportunity to register Oct. 7 to 12
for the coming election, Phil West-
brook, co-chairman of the Village
registration drive, said yesterday.
Westbrook explained that the proc-
ess of registration is complicated by
the fact that the Village is partly in
Ypsilanti Township and partly in
Superior Township. Those who re-
side in Ypsilanti do not have to reg-
ister if they have registered there
previously and have voted in the past
two years. Everyone in Superior
township must register regardless of
Ypsilanti township residents will
register at the West Court Commun-
ity Building while Superior residents
will register at the Village Commun-
ity Center near the rental office. Over
100 volunteer canvassers will start
going from door to door on Oct. 4 to
explain further the registration de-

The loveliest of lasses,
And at the dance, to

Of Tom, Dick, or
