(/I 1 ;—The Ameiican Legion called on Con gres.s yesterday to make costs a scc- oiutury consideration and paw muiti*billion dollar veterans pension bill. Before a wrangling session of the House Veterans Committee, which received new pension cost estimates running up to $71,000.000,000. Loglou Spokesman jolm Thomas Taylor declared: "I con't tliiuk yon should emphasize cost as against principle." To demands from the commit tec for some legion cosl figures, Taylor re toned that "all figures cause i.s confusion." The committee has before it a bill by Rep. Rtmkm (D-Mf&O to pay $72 a month lo World War I veter- •An* at nge 65, subject to S300Q-a- income limitations for married veterans and $2000 for unmarried servicemen, Taylor endorsed the Rankin at a committee session which also: 1. Received a Veterans Art minis (ration estimate that if all World War 1 ;uul II veteran.*) nre covered it u-o;<ld cosl 317,000.000.000 by the w^year 2000.

Taylor, the Legion's legislative representative in Washington wanted income limitations taken out of the pending bill, Taylor said the Legion prefers Rankin's original pension proposa of J90 instead of S12. He told the committee he did no' regard cost as a "consideration, 1 but that Congress should first es tablish the principle that the vet eran i s entitled to a pension whci he reaches 65. Ji^ "I don't agree with you," Teagui ™ told him, "I think cost is a ver; important factor for consideration.
