The 1937 market outlook for ani

prospective supply smaller than in
1936, according to the current Ag

The other major factor in deter

cows on farms in the United States

NYA Aid Again Allotted
Needy College Students
Applications for financial assist
ance under the National Youth ad
ministration for attending Oregon
State college are now being re
ceived by E. B. Lemon, registrar.
Mr. Lemon has just been notified
that the program will be continued
at O. S. C. and all other qualified
higher educational institutions on
essentially the same basis as last
Applications will be received up
to September 1, following which
committees will start the work of
selection to determine the most
worthy among those who have
asked this aid to attend college.
Requirements are that a student
to receive this work-aid, must be
between the ages of 16 and 25, in
clusive, mus show promise on the
basis of high school or past college
record of doing creditable scholastic
work, and must be able to show
that he or she requires such aid In
order to attend college. All stu
dents who receive the help must
work on a regular hourly basis at
the prevailing rate for the type of
work they do.
All sorts of work projects were
carried through under the plan, the
chief requirement being that it must
be useful work which would not
otherwise be done, as the college Is
not permitted to replace regular
employees by this means.
Inquiries already show that there
will be more demand for this aid
than can be supplied, but the com
mittee in charge is prepared to
make a careful examination of each
application in order to extend help
to those most worthy.
