The COLLEGE BY COMPUTER NEW YORK (AP) Guid- ance counselors who are pressed for counseling time can now turn over the more routine aspects of college selections to a computer. An information-marketing organization, NISARC Computers, has devised a personalized computerized method of narrowing down the number of colleges to which a student might want to apply. And at the same time, the company's one-step computer will help the prospective college student's parents find a job, a home or a used automobile. Through the computerized counseling the guidance counselor is relieved of the suming task searching through college catalogs.

Once the computer makes its selection, the student goes over the choices with the Richard Sepkowski of 503 Maxwell Hill Road (right) recently served as a counselor at Keystone Boys State, an American Legion sponsored leadership camp.
