Twenty thousand Americana
decided that Austrafe prosaiaea more
than the passing interest afforded by
the duckbilled platypus and the kan
garoo. They hope to emigrate to

This is largely due to pleasant
wartime associations and a recent
Australian Government offer to pay
a substantial part of their passage
in an effort to attract 70,000 immi
grants a year.
The Australian Consulate-General
in San Francisco is continuing to re

of the decision to contribute from 40
to SO per cent of passage money for

men and women who' died in mili

Inasmuch as officers of the Pest
feel that this film is of especial in
ternet to those whose sons or hus
band, wife or daughter, aid buried
overseas and. must decide whether to
have the body retained to the United
States, a special invitation is issued
to the next-of-kin to see the picture.
It will be presented in the National

North Evans and Third Streets in
Greenville at 8:30, Tuesday, July 16.
The purvey was carried out in co

The report showed that, the
avenge married veteran attending,
college is forced to spend $181.92
monthly and the average single ex
GI, $8486, in ordw-to live with a
minimum of comfort.
It pointed out that there is a
penditures and subsistence allow
ances under the GI Bil, which per
mits married veterans a monthly
maximum of $90 and single veterans,
According to the report, the most
important and consistent sources for
meeting the deficit between expendi
tures and income are personal say
ings and cashing in of Government
bonds. The average monthly-with
drawal by married veterans was giv
en as $85 and for single veterans,
In the case' of married veterans,
some of the deficit is made up
through income from wives' full- and
"It is apparent," the report con
tinued, "that the average veteran's
savings cannot last much longer.
Also, the chief purpose for baying
bonds is in itself being defeated by
the very fact that the veterans who
can benefit moat from savings bonds
are being forced by necessity not
only to stop purchasing them, but to
cash them in before their maturity
value has been reached."
The report asserted that the stu
dent-veterans' financial hardship can
be laid to the fact that the GI Bill,
which was passed before the end of
the war, did not anticipate the. in
flationary rise in living costs.
The report concluded that, while
veterans, both married and single,
are not looking to the Government
for total support, student-veterans
feel that a minimum of $119.18 for
married, and $92.60 for tingle veter
ans, is necessary to "make ends
meet" even though the veterans
themselves "have no intention of
asking their wives to stop working
or of giving Up their own part-time
jobs" should subsistence increases be
