\? 7 Notes Veterans' Benefits By Vincent E. Rogers, State Veteran Counselor Q. My wife is the principal beneficiary on my National Service Life Insurance Policy with a lump sum settlement. If both of us were fatally injured in a car accident, but she survived me even by a few minutes, how would the proceeds of the policy be handled? How could ex- pensive probate proceedings be eliminated? A. If your wife survived you, she becomes the beneficiary under the policy. The VA must pay the proceeds to her estate, and not to the contingent beneficiaries that you may have specified. Probate could be avoided through the use of the \Common Disaster Clause,\ available upon request at the time the policy is issued, or later. This provides for a time lapse between the death of the insured and payment of the proceeds to the principal beneficiary. Thus, if the beneficiary fails to survive the specified period, payment of NSLJ proceeds will be made as if the principal beneficiary had died before the insured. Q. If the wife of a totally disabled veteran wants to take advantage of the new educational opportunity, must she go to school full time? She often has children, as well as her husband, to care for. A. Part-time training is authorized for widows and wives of disabled veterans with $95 the monthly allowance for three-fourths time and $60 for half-time training. Q. May a veteran receive Social Security retirement credit for military service during World War II? A. Generally, yes. A veteran may receive $160 wage credit for each month of World War II duty if he was discharged under other than dishonorable conditions and had at least 90 days of active service. But if a veteran's World War II time is counted [or military or Civil Service retirement, he does not receive Social Security wage credit for the time, since the Govern- ment does not give a veteran double credit. rated service-connected. For out-patient dental care, Rogers pointed out, a veteran has one year from the date of his release from military service to apply for treatment. If he applies for dental treatment within six months of his discharge his condition is presumed to be service-connected. The veterans official also noted that Spanish-American War veterans may receive dental treatment regardless of whether the condition was service- connected. Veterans desiring information and counseling concerning out-patient treatment at VA hospitals are invited to stop in at the New York State Division of Veterans' Affairs local veterans counseling office for assistance. In this area the local office is located at 201 State St., Ogdensburg.

Potsdam - \What your parents don't know won't hurt them,\ may be a popular claim of certain young people, but officials of State University College at Potsdam are convinced that what parents don't know can be definitely hurt their college-age offspring. That is why the college is scheduling an orientation program for parents to entering students to coincide with summer orientation for .entering fresh- men and transfer students. During six three-day programs parents will be introduced to the Pot- sdam college, to problems young people face as students, and to their own new roles in helping their sons and daughter shave a successful college experience. Parents will be made acquainted with services offered to students' to help them avoid certain types of problems and to help them find solutions to problems, such as those related to drugs, should they arise. ' It is the expressed hope of those in- volved in planning these parent orien- tation programs that they will result in making parents better equipped to offer understanding, help and guidance when and where it is needed. Miss Mary Jean McNichol, residence hall director and assistant dean of women, is director of the parents' program, the first session of which will begin June 29. She will be assisted by Thomas P. Amello, a residence hall director. During each session parents will be addressed by Dr. Thomas M. Barrington, president of the college, and by those in charge of various aspects of the college such as housing, financial assistance, college curricula, com- munity relations and various student services. The last formal portion of each three- day session will involve panel discussions on drug information and the showing of video-tapes of drug education held at the college. These will be followed by an open discussion, permitting parents to ex- press their views and ask questions about drugs, particularly as they per^ tain to their own children in college. Additional information concerning the program may be obtained by telephoning Miss McNichol at 268-5190 or 268-5201, or Amello at 268-5241. By Dorothy E.
