GI Bill Hikes Enrollnent
In Schools, Job Training
By The Associated Press
THE HUGE GI BILL education program has brought the influ-
ence of the Federal Government into the education field on an un-
precedented scale.
Already 4,850,000 American men and women who served in World
War II have benefitted from the'various types of education offered by
the nation at a cost of $2,750,000,000 a year.
That's one-third of all World War II veterans and the pro-
gram is just now in its peak. It will run on until July, 1956, for
Vrirtually all veterans and a little longer for a few.
Educators point out that institutions of higher learning-colleges
and universities-are educating 1,000,000 more men and women today
than they were in 1940. There's a waiting list of 500,000 prospective
college students.
BUT THE GI BILL provides more than higher learning. Its vast
educational program under joint control of individual states and the
Veterans' Administration, but paid for by the Federal Government, is
divided into three parts:
1. Education in schools, colleges and universities -called institu-
tional training. (1,705,000 veterans are in this phase of the program).
2. On-the-job training, in thousands of different industrial and
business establishments. (479,000 are in this).
3. Institutional on-the-farm training on thousands of self-sup-
porting, veteran-managed or veteran-owned farms of all sizes. This is
relatively new and only 286,000 veterans are taking part.
THESE ARE THE FIGURES on veterans now getting GI Bill edu-
cation. Many others have completed their studies or training pro-
grams; some have dropped out.
(Latest VA statistics show a slight decline in,the number of vet-
erans at institutions of higher learning; a slight increase in the
number at lower schools and vocational schools).
Total cost to date is roughly $4,000,000,000. A recent boost in sub-
sistence allowances and a lifting of the,,so-called "ceilings" for on-the-
-job-trainees will raise the rate of expenditure.
The only other major change being considered is a proposal now
in the House Veterans Committee to cut out all training which doesn't
lead to a definite employment-objective. This is aimed at certain
flight-training, dance-class and other avocational courses.
Educators who hav_ watched GI Bill education in action pre-
diet it will have a lasting influence on American education.
Representatives of the American Council on Education and the
Association of American Colleges believe veterans who receive school
and college training will want their children and younger brothers and
sisters to have the same chance they did, and they'll expect Federal aid.

Ann Arbor Joins Nation-wide
Youth Hostel Week Celebration

The nation-wide celebration of
American Youth Hostel Week is
reverberating in Ann Arbor.
Special broadcasts, a round-up
at a nearby hostel and radio broad-
casts are honoring the A.Y.H. lo-
cally, according to Mrs. Laura
Gray, president of the city's Youth
Hostel Council.
Youth hostels are overnight
tops of travelers, usually in a
farm house. For a small charge,
an A.Y.C. member can have all
the comforts of home-space on
which to pitch his sleeping sack
and a place to cook his meals.
Coming to the United States in
1934, the youth hostels have stead-
ily grown in number and expanse.
There are now over 250 youth hos-

tels for the 25,000 American men-
There is also an opportunity for
the traveler to go to Europe and
South America under the A.Y.C.
plan. Over 500 hostelers are plan-
ning a jaunt in France, Holland,
Scandanavia and the British Isles
this summer.
The A.Y.C. works through mem-
bership cards which it issues to
hostelers. These cards entitle him
to stop at any hostel. It is the aim
of the American Youth Hostel to
provide home-like stopovers for
travelling youths.
There are housepgrents at each
hostel, usually a farmer and his

"The Vniversity brought into
the home"-that might well be the
motto of the Extension Service's
Correspondence Study Depart-
College can even be brought into
your own back-yard this summer,
if you're interested in absorbing
sunshine and knowledge at the
same time.
According to Mrs. Alfred 0. Lee,
supervisor of Correspondence
4t iy, off-canpus students may
take courses in a wide variety of
basic college subjects. These in-
clude engineering, drawing, his-
tory, math, accounting, education,
languages, English composition,
geography, political science, and
Up to Standards
All college level courses are
carefully prepared to conform to
University departmental stand-
ards, and the same number of
credits are received for corres-
pondence courses as for their cam-
pus equivalents.
Mrs. Lee emphasized the im-
portance of mathematics courses
for students planning engineering

Courses are divided into 16
units. Students receive the entire
course at once, either when they
enrpll at the Department's offices
in North Hall, or when the post-
man arrives with the entire aca-
demic parcel.
May Go Faster
A unit represents a week's work
at the University, but students
may complete courses in less time
than 16 weeks if they wish. How-
ever, the Department advises that
nobody try to whiz through a
course in less than eight weeks.
