THE TRIBUNAL AID
As Director’of a credit
counseling corporation, I
see many families that
have been, allowed their
incomes to ' be over
burdened by too much
credit purchasing. When
it comes to credit buying,
there are few? guidelines
that can be used to keep
you on safe ground.
Never owre more than
20% of your monthly
income to Creditors. This
includes things such as
TV purchases, appU-
ances, furniture, cars, but
it does not include home
mortgages. Home mort
gages or rent payments
should not add up to more
than one w/eeks income,
or approximately 25“/o of
your monthly take home.
These are general
guidelines and should be
used as such, each
situation is different and
has to be judged in
dividually. There is no
substitute for good old
common sense Vk^hen it
comes to financial obliga
tions. Credit is a great
thing if used properly, it
can be a night mare if
used carelessly. Many
people are under the
mistaken impression that
credit increases ones
income, it does not
increase your income but
credit allows you to enjoy
a higher standard of
living, but it does nothing
to increase income which
is free and clear of any
strings.
In some cases, good
credit is more valuable
than money, especially
when it comes to a car, or
a new home. So remem
ber, never over obligate
yourself with credit con
tracts, because once
you’ve signed on the
dotted line, you owe
money, and you must pay
it back. How reliable you
are to this promise will
determine if you will be
allowed to have credit
extended to you in the
future.

Know Your Rights
A file is kept in the local
Credit Bureau on every
person who is a potential
user of credit in the High
Point area. Do I have a
choice about whether a
file is kept on me?
No. The bureau is a
private organization sup
ported by businessmen
for their own use and
reference.
What can I do if I think
there may be something in
my file that is not true and
I have a hard time getting
a loan or charge account
because of this untrue
information?

a proportionate amount is de

A. The permit, or tax clear

two weeks, but not earlier than
30 days, before your departure.
The permit is part of the in

filed by most aliens before their
departure from the United
States. For more information
on obtaining a permit, write

district office and ask for a

Carolina ranked sixth in

of Health Services.
Over 33,422 people
were screened in local
health departments and
mass screening clinics.
Another 18,000 were
tested in multiphasic
screening clinics.
Of the total number
tested, 1,464 were re
ferred to their doctors as
diabetes suspects. Over
176 persons were found to
be diabetics, and 103
were diagnosed border

Diabetes was the eighth
leading cause of death in
North Carolina in 1971,
and the second leading
cause of blindness. Heart
attacks occur two and
one-half times more fre

estimated that one per
cent of North Carolina’s
population has diabetes,
and that another 40,000
have the disease and
don’t know it.
The test for diabetes is
