The top rate of a Home-pB.wed bill was !8 per cent and in several votes the house Indicated Ihat was as high as it would go. The senate version carries a three-R'ay charge on loans up to <#»: 1. One and a half per cent a month interest or 18 per cent a year. 2. Three cents a da.v service charge on each $100 or about 10.8 i per cent a year. 3.

He tried unsuccessfully to eliminate from the bill any loan covered by a chattel mortgage or by co-signers—required ordinarily by small loan firms. 'If they take security they've not entitled to any higher rate than /or ordinary loans." Keating said. "I see no reason a secured loan nhould bear this unconscionable rate." His amendment waa defeated, on ft 10-17 standing vot«. IN TEXAS THEY'RE BIGGER.

M>,_The Arkansas Democrat said yesterday that the Arkarisas American Legion is planning to create a Legion-financed service office for Veterans July 1. That is the date that Joe L. Hearne, state Legion commander, steps down us director of the state- financed. Legion-sponsored service office. The paper said the Lesion's Executive Committee had voted to set up the office at a secret meeting last Sunday, and that Hearne had called a meeting of a 7-man committee for next Sunday to name a rehabilitation director to administrate the office. Hearne is a candidate for the job, the paper added. Governor McMath announced several weeks ago that William G. Smith. Little Rock, would replace Hearne as director of the State Service Office, and the Democrat said that Hearne "was said to have been on the opposite, side of the politic! fence from McMath In last summers' elections." Members of the 7-man committee are: A. B. Carter, Marion; Jack fiyor, Pcxahonfas; R. C Bcenc, Harrison; Loyd Been. FY>rt Smith: Ed Ixjvctl. Little Roth; Frank Sciiaefer. De-Witt and Dale Lcdoet- ler.
