Educators Urge College Credit Be Awarded Veterans For Time Spent In 'Basic' Educators back in the States are discussing plans which will enable veterans to get college and school credit for things which they stud- ied in boot and basic training. More than 100 educa- tors at a recent con- ference discussed the best method of awarding I credits for subjects taken in khaki. One suggestion was that boot or basis tra- ining be credited as half a semester. Patrick J. Sullivan of the Massachusetts Department of Education warned that unless all states adopt a uniform code, educators would find themselves in con- fusion. NO 'LAVISH AID' SAYS CHINESE SPOKESMAN Commenting on Winston Churchill's statement of "lavish American he- lp" to China, a Chinese spokesman declared this week that the total to- nnage of U.S. supplies to the armies of China since Pearl Harbor "would not be suffici- ent to sustain a single British or American di- vision in combat for a week." He declared the only real help to be the 14th Air Force. Legion Head Sees Potent Vet's Group After War HUGE MEMBERSHIP PREDICTED Newly-elected national commander of the Ameri- can Legion, Edward N. Scheiberling of Albany, N.Y., predicts that Leg- ion membership, now at a record level of a milli- on-and-a-half, may climb in postwar years to an ultimate total of six or seven million war vet3. "Such a membership," declared Scheiberling, "would make us powerful in influencing Washing- ton legislation. Not selfish legislation. We just want to make sure we don't have another war. Then it becomes our duty to see that the re- turning veterans get jobs." Scneiberling says he intends to lead Legion- aires toward fulfillment of their program, as outlined by recent con- vention resolutions calling for: 1. Unconditional surr- ender and permanent dis- armament of Germany and Japan, and opposition to a "soft" peace. 2. An association of free nations, "implemen- ted with whatever force may be necessary" to maintain peace. 3. Immediate legisla- tion providing universal postwar military train- ing of young men for one year.
