The children, ages six to 12, from Chester and Philadelphia must have parents (or 'guar- dians') engaged in farm labor or food-related to be eligible for the program. In its seventh year on the Cheyney campus, the program runs from late June until early August. It is funded by Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The Migrant program en- deavors to combine academic instruction.tutoring, cultural enrichment, and swimming instruction in one package, plus two hot meals a day. The children are given a complete physical with dental, hearing and eye examinations. The children are bused to the Cheyney campus five days a week and are given breakfast in the college dining hall. "Some of these kids board the bus at? a.m. and arrive here at Cheyney at quarter to Charles E. Songster, program director and superintendent of student teaching, said. Breakfast is followed by a 15: minute rap session. Last week, Dan Clater, counselor and recruiter for the program, and a social studies teacher from Valley Forge Junior High School, Chester County, was asking the children to be. friends with those of other cultures and cities and telling them about body cleanliness. "Mornings are academic in Songster said. "The children instructed in reading skills and tutored in math and social studies. Tutoring is done by Cheyney students as part of the summer school program." After lunch is the fun begins. The children "receive basic swimming instruction in Cheyney's olympic-size pool.

Even so, I'll wager that I can show you how to become a far more perceptive shopper. In fact, I'll go further and wager that in the following four rules and despite the analysis in my last column of the reasons you are having trouble making ends meet you'll find ways to shave your costs from a minimum of 5 per cent to as much as 50 per cent or more in every area of your family budget. Behind the over-all increase in your living costs each year, there always will be sharp variations of which you can take advantage. There always will be moves you can make to cushion the impact of inflation on your own budget. Your fundamental' safeguards are awareness of the trends and understanding of the ways to protect yourself against the trends. Now here are your four key (1) Substituting for these items, wherever and whenever you can, others of a similar nature on which prices are holding the line. (2) Switching to less ex- pensive versions of increasingly costly goods and services. Shopping harder than ever for the best possible deal on items you must have and on which prices are soaring. (4) Eliminating items which are of no real value and even are of harm to you. For instance, contributing tremendously to the increases in food prices have been costs of meat. But within this food category, you can make many delicious substitutions. You also can choose a vegetable in season for one that isn't. And you have great control over how often you eat out, even greater Control over what you eat when you are out. In general you probably have a great deal more choice in your purchasing than you realize. For one thing, the strategy of when to buy is controlled ,by you. Merrly by planning your spending to take, advantage of seasonal sales the year around, you can easily slash your spending by hundreds of dollars more than enough to offset any apparent annual rise, in the cost of living. Again, to illustrate, over-all transportation costs have been climbing steadily but among the real "villains" behind this inflation have been soaring parking charges arid public transportation You can't do much but you can do some things to save on public tran- sportation costs and you can do plenty to curb your parking charges. You can switch forms of entertainment for activities which are going out of sight. You certainly can save on cigarettes by quitting smoking. You have a wide variety of choices in clothing. I could go on and on but there is no need. With the basic guidance given here, you can use your own imagination and carry on; superbly from here.
