House Minority Leader Jack Garner of Texas would give the veteran the basic compensation plus the 25 per cent credit plus 4 per cen! interest from the date of the certificate. That would ccal 52,120.000,000 and would exceed the so-called cash value by about $375.000,000 Gamer estimales Ihat about 60 cent of the veterans might take advantage of this, bringing the cos down to about $1,300,000,000.

But somewhat less Ihr.n half of the veterans have borrowed and. assuming that few new iCerliSeaMs would h: pledged -about 3350.000.000—may be taken as a rough estimate of the maximum likely lo be lent to vel : erans. Nearly $300,000,000 of thai, however, has already been borrowed under the old loan values, which would leave $550,000.000 available lo borrowers. Because no one can foretell how extensively veterans would take advantage of extension oi loan privileges It is perhaps safest to yuess that the amount of cash paid out, would run somewhere between ^4W,poO,0000 and $600,000.000.

In most instances, the rate on veteran loans is now 5'.1> psr cent, but it has been running as low as 4 per cent in the New York district. The Veterans' Bureau has been making loans from the U. S. government insurance fund. If !ca:i values were raised by law, another hundred million or more might be raised from that source and th3 bureau could begin lending from it on the new basis at once. Tlie sinking fund for Ihe compensation certificates will amount to- nearly $900,000,000 after this Congress has made ths annual appropriation for it and if 50 p?r cent of. Ihat were made available fo: loans the amount would cover th probable requirements ol tbe pro- t '.ed loan value extension.

SOUTH—DEALER S-K-l-5 H-C-g.5 0—a-9-2 C—A-Q-7-3 The Kidding TlK hand was played at contract and South, the dealer, having a count of H, opened with one no trump. This suited West very well and he passed. North, however, has a distribution Iriat will nst stand no trump and takes out with two hearts. East puts in an overcall ol three diamonds. Sou[h goes lo three hearts and West jumps to five diamonds, which South doubled. South's daub!c is rather dangerous, due to the fact that West, after passing his one no trump, jumped his partner to flve. This would show that West held some good tickets and was satisfied to see South -attempt to play th? hand at no trump. South shculrt have been salisfied to defeat the- contract if possible. The Play South's opening was the queen of hearts, the top of his partner's suit, which the dummy won with the ace. The jack of diamonds was led from dummy and when North showed out by discarding a heart, the declarer went up with the ace. South's no trump has spotted most of the missing high cards for the declarer. His next play is the jack, of clubs which S-uth wins with, the ace and returns the nine of hearts. North covers with the ten in order to be in the lead In case the declarer has another heart, but (he declarer trumps with the three of diamonds.
