Legislature Gets Plan for Soldier Bonus SANTA FE, Jan. 18 (AP)--- Legislation proposing to amend the constitution anticipatory to enacting a state soldiers' bonus two years from now was readied for introduction in the house of representatives today. Apply to All Wars Thj bonus amendment, sponsored by Rep. J. A. Montoya (D- Bernalillo) proposed to remove any restrictions prohibiting the state from paying bonuses to honorably discharged service personnel, their children or a surviving spouse. It would apply to those who served in the nation's armed forces at any time during which the United States is or was engaged in war. , Ready in Two Years Montoya said that if the required authority Is given by the people, the machinery could be set up by stick to the old idealism that is expressed in the Atlantic Charter, we also are going, to want to see that the Poles and the Finns and the other little nationals that have been underfoot so long get a fair- break in the peace setup. + + + And that's where our worries come in. * + * Stalin also has demonstrated-ever so often--a certain amount of disregard for the rights of the little fellows. * + * He did it, in regard to Poland, when he first asserted claims to a slice of that many-, time-raped land of patriots--even though, simultaneously, he expressed willingness to give the Poles, in exchange, an equal slice out of what has been Germany, He did it again when he recognized the Lublin government, got up in Russia as a puppet of the the 1947 legislature. He said that he has in mind a bonus of 50 cents for each day served within the continental United States and of $1.25 for each day of overseas service. He 'estimated the cost of such, a plan at $20,000,000 and said it would have to be financed through xation. Two taxes he contem- j plates, he said, would be a levy on rents, payable by lanlords, and a tax on distillate oil. THESE WAR VETERANS ARE FURLOUGH-BOUND leaps and bounds, especially in th Would Repeal Loan Act Abolition of the 1939 small loan act, legalising: of gambling on a county local option basis and removal" of constitutional restrictions now prohibiting a soldier's bonus were among a score of .bills proposed in the house of representatives today. The small loan repealer went to the committee on ways and means after an attempt was made to send it to corporations and banks. The house adjourned until 11 a. m. Monday. Favor Mexican Water Ttreaty Legislation was introduced in the senate by Burton Roach of Hillsboro proposing to raise the salaries of district health officers from $400 to $500 a month.

Postoffice Here Secs Way Out for Reported Shortage In Postage Stamps With an increase of $10.821.43 in postal receipts for 1944 over 1943, thy Las Cruces postoffice will retain its first class rating, Postmistress Lena B. Sexton announced today following compilation of the annual report of receipts for the past year. Gross receipts for 1944 totalled $58,556.36 as Against $47,734.93 for 1943. A part of this increase, the postmistress pointed out, could be ac- conted for by the increase in lo- postage rate during tho past j , year, but this covers only a frac- --~~~ | tion of the total increase in re- .ceipts, which, she points out, indl- [catc a considerable boost in post- j office business during the year. j "We feel satisfied with the ! year's showing," she said, "as the I increase was not due to anv an Veterans of overseas fighting cheer as they ride ferry enro'ute to Camp Shanks, Orangehurg, N.
