He told the veterans that the government maintained a re- sponsibility for those disabled by war service and hoped to increase these benefits. But, he declared that "special benefits1' would not be given to a man "over and above all other citizens because he wore a uniform." Mr. Roosevelt added a third prin- ciple to the veterans ance that the Federal government would give the same relief It gives to others In coring lor those veterans who are disabled from causes un- connected with war service but un- able to care for themselves. A mighty ovfttion from the war vet- erans resounded at Chicago Stadium when President Roosevelt arrived. The President and Mrs. Roosevelt were escorted to the platform by Louis A. Johnson, national com- mander. The President, who was second In command of the Navy in1 the World War and since suffered from infantile paralysis, went before the convention today against the advice of friends to talk over the relation of the veterans to government. "The car was he said In speaking of the spring of this year. "Obviously, the first objective was to get the engine running again.

Pitts Staff Writer of The Herald A small number of cities in the United States have been picked as danger spots by the National Bureau of Casualty and Surety Underwriters and (he National Safety Council. These cities were chosen as traffic ".sore where it was found advisable to offer the services of the best traffic en- gineers in the country in an el- fort to correct the growing evil of lion-enforcement of traffic regulations. None or the cities IK large. None of the cities has a REAL traffic prob- lem. They are all under population.

And in the doing or It we laid down two principles which di- rectly affected benefits to to you and veterans of other wars. "The first principle, following In- evitably from the obligation of citi- zen.1! to bear arms, Is that the govern- ment hns a responsibility for and to- Tcnrds those who suffered injury or contracted disease while serving In Its defense.

No person, because he wore a uniform, muat thereafter be placed to a special class of beneficiaries over and above all other citizens. Those who were Injured u a result of their service ate entitled to receive adequate compensation for Ulelr disabilities. To carry out these principles, the people of this country can and will pay In taxes the sums which It is necessary to raise. It Is my hope that those whose disabilities are of war origin (will be given) even more generous care .than Is now provided.
