Had Ecarly Start Settlement of the bonus will remove one of the most troublesome issues in American politics. The armistice hardly had been signed on November 11, 1918, when bills began'to pour into the rpcciving baskets of hotisc and senate proposing that something bo clone for the.4.000,- 000»mcn whoshortly. would return to civilian life. Since then there have been presented to the house 474 bills and to the senate 124 bills dealing with ..he question of adjusted compensation for World war veterans. . Congress passed a measure within j 3 few clays after the end of the war giving each honorably discharged veteran a cash grant of $60 which was laid him as he left the service. The "Bonus March" In 1924, over President Coolidge's ; /eto, the adjusted service compensation act, now in effect, was passed by congress. Veterans were given certificates with provisions for payment at death of the holder or 20 years after issuance. The computation was •nadc at the rate of $1 a day for service at home and ?1.25 a day for. service overseas. The "bonus battle" has been marked by bitterness and even physical violence. In .1932, the now historic 'bonus march" was made upon the capital. Hundreds of World war veterans invaded Washington and bivouacked themselves almost within the shadow of the capitol dome. On July 28, 1932, President Hoover the most impressive military demonstration Washington has seen in years. Tcmoricw—Veto Battles.
