WASHINGTON It seems
pretty certain that Congress will
vote increases in payments for
those going to school under the
GI bill but the question is: how
The House has passed a bill
that would increase the college
attendance rate from $175 to
$200 a month for a single
veteran $205 to $234 with a wife
and from $230 to $262 for a
wife with one child. Other rates
would go up about the same
14 per cent.
Sen. Vance Hartke D-Ind.
chairman of the Senate Veterans
Affairs Committee has in
troduced a bill that would boost
the rates to $244 for a sngle
veteran $285 with a wife and
$326 with a wife and one child.
Hartke says it would make
the rates to $244 for a single
the liberal benefits given World
War II veterans.
The World War II veterans
received $500 a year for books
fees and tuition and $60 to $90
a month subsistence.

stepchildren who live with my

DR Tyler Tex.
No but to qualify you should
submit to the VA the birth
certificates for the children
showing the names of the
parents and proof of your mar
riage to the children's mother.

sisting Vietnam era veterans
also should get payments for
books fees and tuition $1000.
Legislation for the $1000 has
been introduced by Sen. Charles
The association which says
the Vietnam era veteran "has
granted patted on the head and
ignored" has been lobbying
vigorously for better GI educa
tion benefits saying college
costs are going up faster than
GI allowances and many are
having to drop out of school.
BOOST IN WORKS There's
a good chance that the com
pensation paid to veterans for
will be increased at least 10
per cent. Such an increase was
introduced by the entire Senate
Veterans Affairs Committee and
hearings are being held.
The committee's bill is con
siderably more generous than
the 6 per cent increase recom
mended by the Veterans Ad
The legislation providing the
first raise since July 1 1970
would up the allowance for a
100 per cent disabled veteran
from $450 to $495. It also would
tional assistance. All you have
to do is get an application form
from the VA and mail it in
with your educational records.

to offer ROTC for women for
the first time next fall.
They are Pennsylvania State

commissions as second

the four-year course.
The Army and Navy followed
the lead of the Air Force in
admitting women to full ROTC
membership. Whether the Army
will expand to other schools
depends on how things work out
in the first 10.
The Army also has announced
nine colleges are new hosting
ROTC units next school year.
And the Air Force has selected
33 more schools for Air Force
FLIGHT PAY FLAP Many
a in of in
services are unhappy about a
new Defense Department rule
that only those who have the
highest probability" of being
assigned to combat may engage
in proficiency flying. It also
means no such flying by colonels
and above when their jobs don't
call for it.
The move affecting about
7500 rated officers in the four
services is designed to save the
cost of the flying. Although they
won't lose their flight pay many
are fearful that this might be
a step in that direction.

Ft. Hood Boy Scouts have
selected May 8-17 as
beautification period and May
13 as "Keep America Beautiful
Day 1972" to emphasize the need
for litter clean up litter preven
tion and recycling as an answer
to the nation's solid waste
To emphasize this occasion
Ft. Hood is sponsoring a poster
contest for soldiers and for
students at Meadows Elemem-

awarded in both the soldiers'
poster contest and the Meadows

The Killeen Chamber of Com

Chamber of Commerce are
designating May 8-17 as Clean

Ft. Hood Boy Scouts are holding
their beautification program the
same week. Boy Scouts from
the Leon Valley District will col
lect trash during the drive and
May 13 will build litter monsters
in Conder Park in Killeen to
focus attention on the problem
"Keep America Beautiful Day
1972" stresses a joint-effort by
people of all ages to bring about
an immediately cleaner en
vironment and litter prevention
in the future. A major objective
is to increase understanding of
recycling. Recycling solves two
problems it gets rid of the
trash that litters and it reduces
the drain on natural resources.
With today's increasing use of
raw materials and with solid
as ax in is a

of use and discard must give
way to recyling techniques to
conserve raw materials to pro
tect the environment to con
serve land space and to limit
Another important objective is

will the scouts and other
participating youth learn about
litter and its adverse effects
but millions of other Americans
will become aware. Hopefully
this will lead to less litter in
the future. Huge stacks of litter
accumulated in parking lots and
other high visibility locations
will effectively focus national at
tention on the problem.
Litter clean up efforts are
conducted at various times
throughout the year by scouts
but this drive May 8-17 is
designed so that everyone can
can see what it all adds up to.
Studies show that those who see
the results of a clean up cam

improved environment and tend
