High Tuition For
Upheld By VA
' WASHINGTON, Dec. 24
The Veterans administration rul
ed today it has a right to pay
higher college tuition rates for
ex-GI's than the colleges are le
gally permitted to charge.
The decision means millions of
dollars for state and city operat
ed schools, which may be barred
by state law from charging tui
tion fees or are .limited In the
amount that can be charged.
The general accounting office,
"watchdog", on government
spending, had challenged some
VA tuition payments to those
schools. In one test case Involv
ing the University of Wisconsin
an estimated $7,000,000 to $8,000,
000 in pnvments were at stake.
The VA attributed the account
ing office's action to a "misun
derstanding" of VA regulations
concerning the tuition payments.
va nas neon paying the higher
tuition fees to some schools be
cause of the heavy cost of teach
ing great numbers of Veterans.
The GI Bill of Rights also re
quires the Veterans administra
tor to pay tuition whether or not
the school Is legally permitted
to charge It, VA said.
Primarily. VA said, the rul
ing by Administrator Carl Gray
holds the VA has the right to
nay so-called "non-resident" tui
tion rates for GI students even
though the Veterans are residents
of the state In which they are
going to school. -
That right had been challenged
by Comptroller General Lindsay
Warren, head, of the general ac
counting office, In the University
of Wisconsin case.

This new Idea In fund raising
was suggested by James E. Stiles,
Wesleyan 13, who Is chairman of
the fund drive and publisher of
the Nassau Dally Review-Star of
Rockville Centre. L. I, N. Y.
"Ii our plan succeeds," he says,
"It should serve as a blueprint
for every small, privately en
dowed university In America."
Stiles explains how It workt:

see fit for the betterment of the

want them to feel that Wesleyan
Is their university.
Speclfio Plea Explained
Why appeal to seif-educated
men for funds? Explains Stiles:
"Because a spiritual bond has
long existed between Wesleyan
and such men. Substantial por
tions of the college's plant and
endowment were made possible
by men of this type. Wesleyan
educated Its students to develop
against a background of the
humanities the 'self-made' quail
ties which have helped make this
country great. Approximately
one-third of the undergraduates
are young men of high promise
but small resouroes, for whom
the college is providing the for
mal education our self-educated
men were denied in their youth."
"Up to the present Wesleyan
has relied on its own alumni to
keep going. But try as we did, It
has been necessary to dip into
capital funds to the tune of $125,
000 each year for the last three
years. We need $321,000 for our
Immediate needs. And we think
business men have a sufficient
stake In seeing us hold our heads
above water to give It to us."
In the first five days, says
Stiles, the campaign raised $15,-000.

But he said that spending either
too much or too little for military
purposes could be disastrous for

Johnson spoke at the annual
meeting of the New York Lawyers-association.

"But," he added, "while it would
be disastrous to wreck our econ
omy by inordinate military ex
penses, It would be equally dis
astrous to be penny-pinching. The
watch-word must be military se

. Johnson declined to comment
on the picket demonstration.
Grant Reynolds, a leader, said
tne picKets were trying to spot-,

of segregation which Secretary
Johnson seeks to pawn off on

Johnson, who has been pushing
a unification economy campaign
to trim $1,000,000,000 from the
current $15,000,000,000- defense
budget, reported that the drive,
already, has passed its first goal.
