Vets Storm Bureaus for Loans Lpfion V F W p ,• plications. Applications for a total of approximately $85,000 have been inade by more than 250 World War veterans, through local agencies, since the adjusted service certificates loan law became effective last Friday, a check-up today revealed. Estimates as to the amount of money which Mississippi county veterans are entitled to borrow on their adjusted services certificates range from $250.000 to $500,000. Both the offices of Sam Manatt. American Legion service officer, and the Veterans oE Foreign Wars reported a steady rush of veterans seeking assistance in filing their loan applications. Borrowers Are in Need Manatt and officers of the Veterans of Foreign Wars concurred in the opinion that all but a scant few of the veterans who have applied for loans are in actual need. The American Legion service officer stated that negroes comprised (he big majority of the veterans who applied at his office for assistance. 'All but a few of the 100 veterans, whose applications he has filed, had already secured one loan on their certificates and were eligible only for a second loan of 2T,i per cent of their certificates, Manatt said. He estimated that the average loan available for apnlica- - lion*.filed 'from his office 'would be - approximately $250.

(UP) • —Viewing the Morris Muscle Shoils bill as embodying the Issue of government ownership, President Hoo-: vor today returned It to congress' with his veto accompanied by an ', emphatic veto message.
