)ld Yearbook Prediction Comes True

The teaching profession seemed
redestined for Dean Willard C.
lson of the education school.
As far back as the eighth grade,
is friends had recognized what he
as cut out to be. That year the
earbook had predicted he would
ecome a professor.
"One reason for my choosing
hat particular field," he says,
grew out of the frequent mention
f my friends that I would be good
t it. One gets satisfaction not
nly from doing things but having

Couple this with a "general cur-
osity as to why things are as they
re and a basic interest in the
deas of people" and you have the
easons why Michigan now has 01-
on as Dean.

Tax Exemption'
Bill Introduced
A bill that would allow a $600
tax exemption for parents of chil-
dren over 18 years of age if the
child is a student attending school
or college has recently been intro-
duced in Congress by Democratic
representative Abraham J. Multer
from the 14th District of New.
According to Multer, the House
Ways and Means Committee has
conducted hearings on the bill and
recommended the added exemp-
tion plan.
Multer, explaining the philoso-
phy of the bill, recently wrote "we
have gotten to the point in this
country where we believe that just
as a primary education is neces-
sary, and a secondary or high
school education is necessary, we
should, if possible, give every child
in this country an opportunity to
get a college education."
Student organizations through-
out the country are supporting the
plan, including the National Stu-
dent Association which has done
much publicity to direct the at-
tention of taxpayers to the fact
that expenses for college educa-
tion should be tax deductible:
