THE COLLEGE COST PICTURE: IS IT SO GRIM?

Paying for college generally is pictured as a special kind of middle-age financial torture. You're pushed by those who tell you that you must afford it, and pulled by those who tell you how rough it's going to be. And as if to offer proof, the colleges themselves keep ticking off one tuition boost after another.

AUTOMOBILE LEASING PLANS JUST RIGHT FOR YOUR FAMILY

Over seven percent of the new cars produced last year went into service under some type of leasing arrangement, and it's estimated that this figure will reach ten percent by the early 1970s. Obviously, the approximately 700,000 people who leased cars in 1968 found leasing more convenient and/or more economical.

A GUIDE TO 1969 NEW-CAR WARRANTIES AND HOW TO KEEP THEM UP

For 1969, all U.S. auto makers have at last adopted virtually the same warranties. Basically, they now warrant their cars as follows. Within the first 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever comes first, any defect in material or workmanship will be repaired or replaced free of charge by an authorized dealer. This 12/12 portion covers every part of the car except tires and battery. (These carry separate warranties from the company manufacturing them.)

GOOD-BYE MONO HELLO STEREO

For years record buyers have been taught they couldn't play stereo records on monophonic machines. Now fewer and fewer records are available in mono, and the switch to an all-stereo record industry leaves mono phonograph owners a little bewildered. If you're one of the many in a record buying quandary, here's what you need to know:

FAMILY FUN IN CHICAGO

The burly, big-shouldered Chicago of Sandburg still exists, but you scarcely know it's there as you pursue the city's cultural and recreational attractions.

THE LUGGAGE SCENE: A BRAND-NEW BAG

If you haven't shopped for luggage lately, you're in for an exciting surprise. A few of the old familiar names persist-- two-suiter and pullman, for example-- but the products they represent bear about as much resemblance to the originals as color TV does to an old-fashioned stereoscope.

Annuals provide bright masses of color for the summer garden --and some new, prize-winning varieties, as well as other new introductions, should make 1969 gardens especially colorful.

Just how well do you take care of your dog or cat?

If you think grooming should be restricted to pampered show dogs and cats, you're wrong. Proper care is an important part of any pet's good health and good disposition. It can even prolong the life span. Though grooming differs with each breed of dog or cat (some require more than others), it should always include coat cleaning and brushing, and care of eyes, nails, and teeth.

You work with bits and pieces of stiff cardboard and a sharp knife or some single-edged razor blades. (Have a plentiful supply of blades on hand, since you need a sharp one to cut unusual shapes and to trim around the outer edges of cardboard.)

REALLY GREAT TROUT FISHING

Most beginners choose spinning tackle, the gear that really made casting easy. Sensitive rods and active, sinking lures are best. Monofilament lines should be light-- four to eight pounds. Trout will hit small spoons, spinners, poppers, and flies; besides casting, you can still-fish pools with worms or minnows.

THE SUN COASTS OF THE MEDITERRANEAN ISLES

Homer called it his "wine-dark" sea, but the Mediterranean is a sea of many shades, some the deep-blue of an astronaut's sky, some the translucent green of Venetian glass, some the gold of sunsets. No other sea has quite that beauty, nor the Mediterranean's magic light that shimmers like a halo over its exotic eastern shores and isles.
