MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 23 1936 THREE HOW BONUS WILL BE SPENT SHOWN Virtually Every Business to React to Tinkle of Fresh Coins. WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. (UP)-The American Legion today presented its picture of where the veteran's bonus dollar will go--a picture showing that virtually every phase of business and industry will react to the tinkle of fresh coins in the cash register. The picture was based on a questionnaire answered by some 42',000 ex-service men and was predicated on full cash payment of the bonus. The baby bond feature of the present bill will reduce expenditures by about $500,000,000 or 14 per cent, the Legion estimated. This sum should be deducted from each of the totals presented, the Legion said. Entire Cost $2,287,000,000. If all the certificates were cashed, the veterans organization believed, veterans would receive $1,988,391,182 or about $565.17 apiece. Congressional sources have estimated the entire bonus cost to the government at around $2,237,000,000.

This would mean an expenditure of -5133,341,613 in home repairs or almost as much as was spent through the federal housing administration all last year. Those without homes--in many instances--will buy them. The Legion figured that 239,568 veterans would buy homes, making first payments, at least in part, with honus money. Some 115,000 will buy lots and 153,724 farms, the estimates showed. Forecast Miner. Boom.

Increased Allotments Jacobsen's Goal for Rock Island Arsenal WASHINGTON, Jan. 23. UP)-Representative B. M. Jacobsen ot Clinton, Iowa, today saitl an attempt would be made to have the house army appropriations subcommittee increase allotments for the Rock Island arsenal. Jacobsen said he and Representative Chester Thompson of Rock Island, 111., hail made arrangements to appear before the subcommittee to urge an increase above the president's budget. Thompson said any increase in the appropriation for the ordnance department of the army would undoubtedly mean more funds for Rock Island. He said lie believed the budget provisions would mean allotment of sufficient funds to keep manufacturing processes at the ar- senal going at the present rate of employment. Both congressmen said they were interested also in obtp'iing funds for additional buildings at the arsenal. Bobsled I'artles Popular. PORT CLINTON. Ohio.

Get Creomulsion light now. (Adv.) While "cleaning up his basement" recently, Frank Hartman of Creston, right, and Eldon Smcltzor, left, found these two old United States flags. The larger flag has 30 stars. Its unusualness is found in the fact the block containing the stars extends across the entire width of the flag and there arc but five stripes. It is believed to have been used between J848 and 1850. The smaller flag is regulation in makeup, but contains only 36 stars, and was probably used from 1864 to 1867. (Iowa Daily Press photo) from the payment, with 592,451,003 in bonus money going into home building which the Legion believed would mean a total home construction program of .$641,056,000. Money spent inside homes will be equally important. Veterans indicated that the things they would buy most of were furniture, rugs and carpets, electric and gas refrigerators, furnaces and radios. Some $8,761,000 should be spent on radio alone, the estimate showed. New Hats for Wives. More than a million wives of veterans are going to get new hats and dresses, if there is any bonus money ftft over after paying the bills, the poll showed. For every dollar that veterans spend on their own clothing they will spend 51.71 for their wife and children: That accounts for an expenditure of $88,342,000. Comparatively small amounts are destined for education, insurance and savings. Only 440,891 veterans, the poll indicated, will spend money n insurance, 115,231 on education and 361,670 will put Borne money into the bank. Has Novel Ash Tray. LUVERNE, Jan. 23.

Dottie Steele, an attrac- · five widow, who lived nearby, had designs on Selwyn Marsh. It was evinced in her every action. Even Marsh himself was aware of it. He had no desire to marry her. But Mrs. Steele had every reason to believe she had played her cards well.

ELECTRIFICATION INTEREST SHOWN Survey Reveals 92 Per Cent of Farmers Interested in Subscribing. AMES, Jan. 23.--A definite interest in Iowa in rural electrification and a desire for electrical appliances that can be used on the farm other than lights is indicated in a survey recently completed in 11 counties in the state. The .results of this preliminary survey were presented, in an address by Prof. Frank D. Paine, rural electrification engineer of the agricultural extension service of Iowa State college, before the annual convention of the Iowa Implement dealers association at Des Moines. 93 Per Cent Willing. Of the 1,221 farmers contacted in the 11 counties--799 of them owners and 422 tenants--more than 92 per cent asserted a willingness to subscribe to the rural electrification program. "This sample shows," said Professor Paine, "that the Iowa farmer feels that he not only wants electricity for his personal comfort but could use it to economic advantage in the business of farming." About 40 per cent Of the farmers stated that they considered $4 a fair monthly fee for electric service. Thirty-one per cent are willing to pay $5 per month and 11 per cent will pay $6. Only one man contacted is willing to pay no more than $1 a month and another values the service enough to volunteer to pay $10 a month. Everyone of the 1,200 farmers would use his electric service for lighting, and more than 900 would use electricity for washing machines, irons and radios. About half of the farmers expressed a desire to use electricity for refrigerators, vacuum cleaners and motor driven cream separators. Only 31 per cent would use electricity for their water supply system and a slightly smaller percentage desire to use elecricity for bread toasters. Small percentages want to use electricity for milking machines and for heating brooders. Only 89 farmers are interested in electric water beaters. Twenty-five per cent of the farmers wouid like to use electricity for power purposes such as grinding feed, elevating and cutting silage and filling silos.

IOWA MAN DEES OF ASPHYXIATION Body Is Found in His Room at Rear of Garage m Des Moines.
