Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 14, 1933, Mason City, Iowa TWO SEES DANGER IN SHARP VET CUTS Hall Says Relief Will Fall on Counties Gives Iowa Legion Program DBS MOINES March 14 Iowa board of supervisors today were faced with the warning that if drastic cuts are made in the fed eral appropriations for veterans re lief the burden will be merely transferred to county seats voiced by W Earl Hall Mason City state commander of the American Le gion In an address here last night Mr Hall said One inescapable consequence of effecting wholesale federal govern ment economy through the medium of reducing and eliminating veter ans benefits is that for the most part the step will mean nothing more nor less than transferring the burden from Washington to the Iowa county seat and to county seats throughout the land er with no opposition A total of 1 224 votes was cast Price of Balancing In snort the price of balancing the federal budget will be a further disjointing of local government budgets already sadly out of bal ance A movement to remove inequali ties in the administration of veter ans laws will be supported by the veterans Mr Hall stated but he continued the Legion cannot sup port a proposition if it is merely one to balance a federal budge while aggravating the utter lack o balance in local government bud gets The Iowa program he outlined a follows Care For Disabled To care for disabled and detfen dents with employment and relief as keystoneof our state program of service The Legion last year supplied employment temporary or permanent to more than 21 00

1930 to 583 in 1931 and 530 in 1932 Mr Hall said The Iowa department of the Le gion also includes in its program better care of veterans orphans support of veterans grave regis tration resistance to
