How much does college really cost?

Maybe your youngster won't be ready to go to college for some years-- but when that time comes, will you be prepared to meet the bills? Will you be able to afford $1,000, $1,500, or $2,000 annually out of your salary for four long years? Actually, very few of us in these times can pay such extra charges out of our current incomes. Therefore, it's important to start (if you haven't already) to save systematically for your child's education.

MEXICO

Mexico has breath-taking mountains looming over magnificently colored, barren deserts; lush, tropical jungles pushing against palm-fringed, curving Tahitian-like beaches; quiet, dry, mile-high cities so deep in the tropics that every day is like a day in spring; modern cities built on ruins that were teeming with a high order of civilization when Europe was barbarian and North America a wilderness. It is a continent in miniature, with most of Nature's wonders encompassed within a few hundred miles.
