Winn, regionaPmannger of the Veternns Administration. Winn -said the committee will decide, In each L-H.SC. whether the amount paid by Ihe VA In settlement of defaulted loans Is to be wnlved, collected, or otherwise adjusted. Under the GI bill, Wlnn explained, when the VA has to make good on its guaranty o( a eteran's loan, the amount paid by the VA constitutes a debt nwed by the veteran to the government. In certain<;, however, the VA has authority to waive or compromise all or part of the Indebtedness. Such cases, accoidinR to the VA, are those in which the veteran Is found to be without fault, where recovery would be inequitable, and where enforced payment would cause undue haidship to the veteran or his family. Similiu- committees are being set up hi each regional office of the Veternns Administration, to consider walvei.s on defaulted loan obligations amounting to $2,500 or less. ObHgntions of more than $2,500, as well as appeal. 1 ? from decisions of the regional committees, will be handled by Ihe central office of the VA, In' Washington.

In Die step from 50.000 to 100,000 gallons per month the new rate, if approved by the state's Public Service Commission in Little Rock, will l)° increased from 20 to 30 cent-' per 1.000 gallons.

In addition to features listed in the chart, consider these Dodge engineering advancements that are yours today ... not one of which was available 20 years ago. Connecting rod bearings arc removable. Oil screen is of the floating, not fixed, type; a rotor oil pump replaces the old gc;ir design. A water distrihuting tube increases engine efficiency. Valve seat inserts substantially prolong engine life, increase gas economy, and reduce frequency of valve-grinding jobs. Vast improvements have been made in piston design; top piston rings are now chrome-plated, insuring better compression, longer cylinder wall life. Famed Amola steel replaces alloy steels in springs and axle shafts. Hypoid rear axles replace the spiral bevel type, and rear axle shafts are sliot- peencd. There are 7 frame crossmcmbcrs (including a channel-type bumper) instead of <i. Added features include voltage-control regulators, stepped hydraulic brake cylinders, and J15- instead of 20- ampere capacity generators. VALUE features in the new "Pilot-House" cabs . . . not present in '20 models .. . include 7-step seat adjustment on famed "Air-0-Ride" seats; slanted "V"-type windshield; safety glass; 4-point rubber, instead of rigid mounting; 57'/i." seat width as against <15'/1"; outside gas lank filler, instead of under seat, and many more. So ... if you're using worn-out or "high-mileage" equipment, slop and think! Consider your present costly maintenance expense, in the light of the savings you would make with modern, advance-design Dodge "Job- Rntcd" trucks. Remember, Dodge "Jnb-Ilnlcd" trucks... in every weight class . . . are priced with the lowest. Take advantage of current low prices, and switch to Dodge "Job-Rated" trucks . . . now! Come in! We'll show you a truck "Job-Ratal" to fit your job ... save you money ... last longer! MOTOR CO. Phone 4422
