■No Check Delay for University Vets eagle Flies on Schedule; Vets Aid Bill to Up Pay Subsistence Payments Not Stopped in Oregon Student veterans in Oregon will receive their subsistence checks on schedule this month, according to an Associated Press story from Portland re ceived here last night. The story followed an earlier • release from Washington, D.C., which stated that the Veterans Administration would be unable to send out monthly checks due today to more than 2,870,000 vet erans receiving unemployment or educational allowances.

Some checks, it said, were already in the mail. The story from Washington said that the Veterans Administration had announced that funds which congress appropriated for making the payments had been exhausted. “The delay,” the story added, “is expected to be of short duration since additional funds for the pur pose are carried in the deficiency appropriation bill currently before congress and should be available within a few days.” .'Go-op Capers’ Dance Theme “Co-op Capers” is the theme of the annual semi-formal Co-op dance, which will be given Satur day, May 3rd, from 9 to 12 in Ger linger, to the music of Herb Wid mer and his campus dance band.
