page 16 - Wednesday, January 16, 1980 Bilingual teaching grants available Students and teachers who would like to become qualified to teach in a bilingual classroom, and need financial aid in order to do so, may apply for a California State Bilingual- Crosscultural Teacher Development Grant. This year the application deadline is February 11, according to Arthur S. Marmaduke, director of the California Student Aid Commission. Students may file the general Student Aid Application for California (SAAC) by that date, along with a Bilingual- Crosscultural Teacher Development Grant Sup- plement. The State's bilingual grants range up to $3,000 per year for tuition, fees, books, and living expenses, depending on the applicant's financial need, and may be renewed for one additional year. Winners are selected on the basis of financial need, oral bilingual skills, and the ability of the applicant to become a bilingually authorized teacher within two years. The competition for the grants is open to juniors and seniors in college, graduate students, and certificated teachers who are seeking special bilingual teaching skills. Students must be studying for a multiple or Single Subject Credential with a Bilingual Emphasis, ap- proved by the California Commission for Teacher Preparation and Licensing or, if already credenUal'ed, for a Bilingual-Crosscultural Specialist Credential, or a ]ilingual Certificate- of Competence. Certificated teachers must be teaching in a bilingual classroom on a bilingual temporary waiver. California colleges and universities offering a CTPL- approved bilingual teaching credential program include: the University of California campuses at Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz; California State University and Colleges at Bakersfield, Chico, Dominguez Hills, Fresno, Fullerton, Hayward, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Nor- thridge, Pomona, Sacramento, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, San Luis Obispo, Sonoma and Stanislaus; and among independent colleges, the College of Notre Dame, Fresno Pacific College, Mount Saint Mary's College, Pepperdine University (Los Angeles), University of La Verne, University of the Pacific, University of San Francisco, University of Southern California and the University of San Diego. Applications for the state Bilingual Crossculturai Teacher Developnaent Grants are available at any of the above schools, by writing directly to Heidi Lazzarotto, Program Supervisor, California Student Aid Commission, 1410 Fifth Street, Sacramento, Calif. 95814, or calling 916-322- 2807. New tax deadline for senior citizens State Controller Kenneth Cory today revealed that senior citizens now have until April 15, 1980 to apply for the state's Property Tax Post- ent program. " egtension, from a prior d|ne of December 31, 1979, to mid-April was made because a severe budget limitation at the Franchise Tax Board has curtailed telephone answering ser- vices. "Many persons, wanting to ask about whether they were eligible for the program simply were unable to make contact with the state," said tory. "Our present telephone setup only allows for the answering of a fraction of the calls that are be.trig made," he added. The Senior Citizen Property Tax Postponement Program allows eligible persons with incomes of up to $23,100 in household income to defer local property taxes. The amount of taxes post- poned will accrue simple interest at 7 percent and is due when ownership of the home is transferred or the citizen no longer owns the home. Those persons who apply before April 15, 1980, and who are eligible can receive a refund from local tax collectors of the 1979-80 property taxes they have paid. "We encourage the seniors of this state to take ad- vantage of this program so that they may help them- selves keep pace with the inflationary cycle," said Controller Cory. Applications for the program may be had by writing the Franchise Tax Board, Senior Citizens Program, P.O. Box 1588, Sacramento, CA 95807, or by telephoning, toll free, 800-952- 5253. GSA revises sale prices of Carson City silver dollars Skyrocketing silver prices have forced the General Services Administration to revise the price of the nearly one million 90 percent silver Carson City dollars scheduled to go on public sale early next month. Roy Markon, Com- missioner of the General Services Administration's Federal Property Resources Service, said the agency must revise previously announced prices which ranged from $20 to $42 per coin depending upon mint year and condition. "We're in the most volatile precious metals market of recent record with silver prices taking unprecedented leaps almost daily. When we announced our original prices on November 13, 1979, silver was selling for $16.16 a troy ounce, in less than two months that price has more than doubled," Markon said., "In view of this, we cannot proceed on the basis of previously announced prices." Each silver dollar contains .7725 troy ounces of silver. When the bullion ce of silver is $35  ml,'lce, the val of  silver in each coin is about $27. Markon said a sale of the coins at a price less than its bullion value at the time of the sale would be irresponsible. The silver dollar sale is scheduled to begin February 8 and end April 8, 1980. The sale will feature three categories of the historic "Cartwheels": 1883-CC (195,745), 1884-CC (428,152), and "Mixed Years-CC" -- 1878-1885 and 1889-1893 -- (299,390L Public interest in the sale has been enthusiastic, with more than 350,000 people requesting information and order forms. "We're not going to disappoint all those people," Markon said. "The agency will proceed with the sale on schedule but at an appropriate price. Because of the rapid changes in the silver market we will an- nounce the price for each category of coins im- mediately prior to the sale." Information and order forms, including the final prices, will appear in major daily newspapers -- including the national edition of the Wall Street Journal -- beginning February 8.
