\ _ THURSDAY. SEPTEMBER 22, 1932 I.YTHEVILLE. r FDR HOT BUTTLE Friends and Foes of $2.000,000,000 Pronosal Are Organized. WASHINGTON.—A hot and bitter battle will be.fought here this winter over the demand for cosh- Ing of the soldiers' bonus certificates. On the one side will be the veterans, their organizations now solidly behind the proposal, worked up to a new pitch of cjrlni determination to ect that two- billion-and-more dollars. On the other side will be the most formidable opirasltton ever encountered by a piece of veterans' legislation. In between will be Congress, ordinarily spineless in the face of veteran demands. Nn one can tell what conditions will 'be like next winter or how effectively the pro- bonus and anti-lxmus forces will organize in the meantime, but it is a good guess that the veteran 1 ; will not be able to achieve their demand by persuading both houses to pass the measure over a presidential vote. The cash bonus bill passed the House at the last session and failed In the Senate, so It didn't even reach the White House, where President Hoover stood ready to veto It . Then Ihe bill didn't hnve the support of the American Legion, which has now voted overwhelmingly for it. Nor was th e distress' of unemployed veterans as acute as it may be this winter. That distress has been the main factor behind the increasing pressure to cash certlfiral"s which are not payable until 1S45. On the other hand, this Con- OKfs In its second session will not be facing a season of primary and election campaigns. It will "be a lame rtuck session, full of defeated members who will have, for the time being at least, little to lose by voting their convictions and perhaps something to Rain by falling in line behind President , Hoover in his opposition. It-is not unlikely that this time , the anti-bonus group will be able to exert political pressure of its , own. Furthermore, In view of unemployment distress many members will object more vigorously (han ever to voting relist for the veterans at the expense of the L ^.iest,,af ,th.e population. .,_. .Political interest recently . hjis centered on whether Governor Roosevelt would take any public position on the bonus before election. In advance of any statement bv Roosevelt, the best guesses were that he preferred to ignore the issue, although - it was believed that he would surely veto such a bill . If he were president. * ' *• * . The. National Economy League meanwhile, is getting an increasing amount of publicity and support and it' seerris likely to be the spearhead of the anti-bonus movement. Founded originally by Archibald Roosevelt and .Greenville Clark, two veterans, it has grown rapidly and Is established In nearly all states with the aim of obtaining reduction of governmsnt expenses. It announced as its first objective "the elimination of the great annual expenditures, now amounting to more than M50,000,000 annually, for those veterans of the Spanish-American and World Wars who suffered no disability in war service." The league is making the most of the facts and figures of veteran legislation, pointing out that the country has alr.'dy spent som? $6.WO.OOO.OOp for World War veterans and ' nt the present rate, which is likely to be stepped UD, will have spent more than 21 billions by 1945. A joint congressional committee has been named to study the whole structure of veteran legislation and will report at the next session. It will be getting busy soon after election.

Aga Khar? and Pretty French Wife Are Expecting An Heir BY MILTON BRONNER NEA :Strvke Writer LONDON.—Throughout the Moslem worid has passed the joyous word that the beautiful French Catholic wife of the Aga Khan is expecting a child In December. And 10,000,000 Mohammedans over whom he exercises religious and spiritual authority are hoping it will be a boy. Already glfls are bel'jj gathered together for the great occasion. There will be costly sables from Mongolia, ivory from Africa, silks from China, gems from Burmah, ingots of gold,- priceless fabrics, blooded' horses, even elephants as part of. their, great tribute. Boy or girl, the child will be at birth one of the richest persons in the world. The Aga Khan himself docs not know the extent of his own wealth, except that it is fabulous. Many of his treasures are beyond appralsa.l. As a lineal descendant of All, who was a nephew of Mohammed, founder of the Moslem faith, the Aga is spiritual head of the Khojar .sect of ' Moslems. These number millions in India, Persia and East "Africa, and it Is their, duty to keep their leader in luxury. ..

He is thanked for accepting- It, and begged In return to bestow upon them some of the water in wh'lch he has bathed. • • * His Bath Wattr Is Countr>men's Substitute for Doctors All of ths Aga Khan's bath water Is saved, for It Is considered holy. His followers buy tiny bottles of It as much-prized charms agninsi disease and evil spirits. Almcn every week he shins a barrel or tiro into some remote province. His wife, who Is his second. Is the daughter of a French restaurant keeper. She became a Paris dressmaker and for years Imd known the powerful and wealthy Indian widower. But when lie Mrs! proposed to Mademoiselle Andree Josephine Marie Leonie Carron, she flatly turned nun down. But the Aga Khan has a bit of iron In his makeup and never takes "No" for an answer.

Aside from his religious and political Interests, Aga Khan Is one of the greatest sportsmen In the world.
