In the bill are money supplies for various government departments. House administration leaders, who suffered several setbacks in the veterans pay stampede, were confident today that the veto would be sustained. It appeared improbable also that the two-thirds -vote necessary to override would be mustered in the senate. Bonus Bill Substitute. Meanwhile, a substitute for the house bonus bill, proposing a compromise between cash payment of the face value of the bonus certificates and cashing their present loan value, was introduced in the senate by Senator Pittman (D-Nev). Pittman proposed to pay the veterans the amount of their adjusted service credit plus interest at four and a half per cent compounded annually since the armistice. He presented estimates by the veterans bureau showing that the cash value of the certificates today is about $2,000,000,000. Brandan Elected President.
