held f Inn arid the bill was sent hurdling across caplto hill squarely into the lap of the senate Theres adeeper significance in this move of the house than appears on the surfaces It goes further than revolt against the administration or even desire on the part of the house to see the veterans cash in on their adjusted compensation certificates Republicans Started It The drive for liberalization of vetj erans compensation in this ses sion of congress the republicans In the senate It was the amendments offered by Steiwer of Oregon a republican to the inde pendent offices
