payments under the G.I. Bill, Vet-
erans Administration officials ex-
plained yesterday.
Student veterans without de-
partments are entitled to substi-
tute allowances of $65 monthly for
full-time courses, $48.75 for three-
quarter time courses, $32.50 for
half-time and $16.25 for one-
quarter time. Veterans with de-
pendents may receive $90 monthly

quarter time, $45 for half-time
and $22.50 for one-quarter time.
The law provides that income
from outside work, plus the sub-

If a veteran is enrolled in the
University on a part-time basis,

bility is prorated. For example, a
veteran eligible for one year of
education who attends a course on
a half-time basis may continue in
training for a two year period.
In a move aimed at improving
the quality of veterans' newly-
built homes, the Veterans Admin-
istration has announced inaugura-

three interim inspections as the
work advances to insure adherence
to the standards agreed upon, VA
officials explained.

Stassen Opens
New Campaign
Calls for 'Forward
Looking Proposals'
MILWAUKEE, Nov. 24-(IP)--
Harold E. Stassen formally
launched his campaign for the Re-
publican presidential nomination
tonight with a plan to blend "lib-
eral, forward looking proposals"
with "conservative attitudes.
The former Minnesota governor
offered an eight-point domestic
and international program to

Wants Funds
The former Minnesota governor
appealed frankly for funds as well
as votes in his first official cam-
paign appearance. He spoke at the
Milwaukee Auditorium.
Stassen gave top priority to
housing and what he termed "lack
of adequate health service" in out-
lining his program at the cam-
paign kickoff sponsored by the Re-
publican organization of Wiscon-
sin and the Stassen for President
Volunteers of Wisconsin.
Social Security
"Everyone on social security
should be covered by an insurance
that will pay duly verified and
reasonable bills which are incurred
for medical and hospital expenses
in excess of $250 in any one year,"
he said.
"Through this means the eco-
nomic castrophe that comes with
major illness or accident is re-
moved, but the entire indepen-
dence of the medical profession
and the personal responsibility of
the individual citizen for his ordi-
nary expense is retained."

The survey revealed that rates
range from a high of $14.44 week-

The University of Michigan is
listed in the highest bracket along
with Wisconsin, Ohio State and
the University of Iowa. Rates at
all of these schools are above
$12.50 per week for women.
The survey, covering a period
from 1942 to the present, was
drawn up by Helen Moore, dean of
women at Kansas State College.
She revealed that room and board
rates for women have increased
at all of the schools, in some cases
as much as 50 percent. Largest
increases are in the board bills.
Other schools surveyed, whose
rates are between $11 and $12.50
weekly, include: Colorado A and
