' Washington; March 12.—A bond issue of $2,500,000,000 to pay adjusted compensation to former service men "might result ID-'disaster," Secretary] Houston told the house ways and means committee, which is considering soldier relief legislation. ..---'• Increased taxes to extend aid to' former service men was suggested' ~b'y J the secretary us ' "the least harmful I way," but he said the proposed expenditure of 52,000,000,000 "would bt? a serious one for people to confront at tills time." "The present financial situation Is not critical." Mr. Houston said. "Economy by the people, avoldancv -of waste In expenditures and prudence In handling 'these appropriations will naturally relieve the situation." Bond Sale Difficult. An attempt to sell bonds and place other paper on the market at existing rates of interest would 1 - be difficult." he said. "I don't know If we could float, bonds at a higher rate of interest," he" : told the committee. "If such bonds iwere floated It would tend to decrease values of present obligations." Further credit expansion whicff has been a factor in the upward trend of living- costs would be inevitable if another bond issue were approved, he said. "We are doing what we can by prudence to bring about normal conditions of affairs, but I can't predict when we will return to the 'prewar state," Mr. Houston continued. . "The proposal to float additional bonds would set up grave situation which 1 am not sure we could handle." Harding Also Worried. The issuing of two billion dollars in bonds at this time would be "a .much more serious proposition than It • wus during the war," Cov. Carding , of the federal reserve board told the comnijttee. "First, there would he a tack, of patriotism which helped "m selling bonds during the war, and secondly we would come into competition with nil sorts j of .commercial investments," he said. 1 Gov. Harding took issue, with) statements of representatives of soldier organizations that bonds issued to soldiers would be locked up. "If they coiiUlt.'ifford to lock up^thelr bonds they don't need them," he declared. "An issue of small bonds for adjusted compensation is only slightly less vicious th:m the issuance of greenbacks." .
