He said the ultimate cost of the measure would be $225,000,000. The bill passed some months ago by the house was estimated as costing $181,000,000 next year and $400,000,000 ultimately. The president further contended the legislation went far beyond anything proposed by the various veterans organizations. He said the American Legion had proposed a bill costing $35,000,000 annually and “thus, these measures represent an implied increase in expenditure of from three to ten times what these veterans themselves would consider just.” Points to Higher Tax recognition of the Soviets and abolition of all vagrancy laws.” FOUR KILLED AT rail atom Automobile Struck by Pennsylvania Express T r a i n— Wreckage Strewn Along Tracks for Over IOO Yards.
