HOW MUCH COLLEGE COST SHOULD A YOUNGSTER EARN?

It's just about impossible for him to take care of it all, except perhaps at the few remaining state universities and other public colleges that charge less than $1,000 a year for room and board. (Even there, "putting yourself through college" is a difficult proposition.) The typical total price tag on a four-year college education has now reached about $10,000-- and is climbing ever higher-- while student pay scales have lagged far behind.

WHAT ASSESSMENTS CAN HIT YOU AFTER YOU BUY A HOUSE?

As many as a dozen or more-- so don't be misled by low taxes when you buy a home. Taxes may be minimal whenever you move into a growing area, but usually a lot of essential improvements are yet to come.

COMING NEXT: DENTAL INSURANCE

As recently as five years ago, the questions most often asked about dental insurance were (a) is it financially feasible? and (b) do many people really want it? To judge by the evidence accumulated since then, the answer in both cases is yes. The number of Americans with dental insurance has already doubled since 1960-- to 1,500,000 people-- and a tenfold increase is anticipated no later than 1975, with perhaps an even faster growth thereafter.

HOW TO START FAIR AND SQUARE

Accuracy is just as important in outdoor building as it is in any other kind, and often a great deal harder to achieve. The best place to start is with some sort of base line. This can be the side of your house in the case of a patio or deck, or a measured line for a fence. Once you get this line set straight and level, you can make all other measurements from it. One thing to watch, however, is the chance of accumulated error. The drawing below shows two ways to measure for setting fence posts.

THE BREAKTHROUGH IN EXTERIOR LIGHTING

There's big news in exterior lighting these days. New systems using 12 volts of electricity instead of 120-volt house current let you install your own lighting and change it around as necessary in a matter of minutes.

TIPS ON WORKING WITH CONCRETE

Laying concrete involves hard work but if you have small areas-- or larger areas that can be broken down into smaller sections-- there's no reason you shouldn't tackle it.
