Senator Watson the Republican Leader predicted the committee measures which would add an estimated Cost of $102,000,000 to the present annual Cost of veterans legislation of $511,000,000 would be passed despite the threat of a presidential veto. Or. Hoover in a letter to senator Watson yesterday transmitted views on the legislation by Secretary Mellon to the effect that it would necessitate an increase in taxes next year to void a deficit. Substitutes for the committe measure proposed by senators Reed Pennsylvania and Bingham Connecticut were discussed by the republicans but no definite plans were adopted to press them. Each was estimated to add an additional Cost o about $35,000, too to existing appropriations. Over veto. Bingham proposal was Orgl Nally proposed by the american legion. Passage of the committee Bill which is a modification of the measure passed recently by the House probably would delay the Early adjournment plans of the leaders.
