New federal plan will save students millions Amber Pace Senior News Editor President Clinton plans to help American students complete their higher education by easing up on the financial burdens. The average price tag for a masters degree in the United States these days is an estimated $30,000. Many high school graduates are learning the value of differed gratification, the concept of paying now and hopefully getting something better in the future. However, one of the many problems happens to be student loans. That deferred gratification could be a very long deferment due to high interest rates and the typical low income of a newly graduated student. Clinton announced last Friday his plans to install a new federal loan system. The new idea will allow college and university students to combine their loans into a single federal loan. By consolidating loans, students will avoid multi-interest rates, and large fixed monthly payments. Now the federal government is allowing students to borrow directly from the federal government and to choose the best way for their personal lives to pay that money back. Clinton said, "We already give Americans looking forward to their retirement a chance to save in what we call an individual retirement account now, we offer people at the beginning of their careers a chance to pay for college in what we call individual education accounts." There are two ways for students to go about joining the group of education account holders. First, apply for a new loan from a school that is part of the direct loan program. So far this year 300,000 students have already opted to do this type of borrowing at 104 participating colleges and schools throughout the country. The Clinton administration projects that by next year 15,000 schools, 40 of American colleges will offer the new program to their students. The second way to put Clinton's new loan plan to work for you is to consolidate loans that you have already acquired into one loan torm the federal government. There are four options to choose from See FEDERAL, Page 12 Across Campus EMPLOYMENT OPPORT-unities forum will be offered Friday, October 28, from 12 to 1 p.m. in the ballroom.

Ha' ch said if he were reelected his main concentration would be "try to get the balanced budget amendment passed and get a number of fiscal reforms done including tax reforms and especially capital gains reductions."Hatch feels the country needs to get control of the economy and excess spending. "I'm very concerned that unless we work really hard to stop the excessive spending (and) get us to live within our means, that this country will not survive in its free and best form," he said. He said he will be working on wide variety of other issues including health care, crime, and education.

Now, UVSC's surrounding residents are concerned with the traffic and parking problems the school's tremendous growth has brought with it. "Growth is healthy for UVSC," said President Kerry Romesburg, "but growth brings with it incredible demands. It ripples like a pond throughout the whole r '1 l"n fl 11.. -1 n , J 1-. .1 . n I " The effects have rippled into the surrounding neighborhoods where residents there say traffic congestion and unwanted parking have caused frustration. "My children play on this street," said Orem resident, Kandy Graves, "and they don't have a clear view of traffic coming, because there are cars lining the street. It's just too congested for a regular neighborhood, and that's what we are and that's what we want to stay." "I'm going to start towing cars away," said resident Jennifer Budge, also a UVSC student. "We put our garbage cans out, and students will park right in front of them and the city won't pick them up. They will even park in front of our mail boxes so the city won't deliver our mail." Some residents have even complained about students cutting across their lawns to get to school.
