A, HAYES Claim That Those Not Injured in War Get Lion's Share Branded False. INDIANAPOLIS, April 4.--The claim that a hundred million dollars out of the amount involved in the recent over-riding of the presidential veto is going to be given to veterans with non-service connected disabilities was branded a vicious falsehood by Edward A. Hayes, national commander of the American Legion, in a statement issued here today. "Our organization," he said, "is pleased that the justified compensation has been restored by law to disabled World war veterans, but the Legion resents such statements as the one carried in a press dispatch of March 28 as follows: Called ''Palpably Unfair." "The overriding of the veto means that approximately $90,000,000 to $100,000,000 will be returned to World-war and Spanish American war veterans annually, without review of their cases to determine whether their disabilities were of service origin." "It is palpably unfair to include in ie above anything pertaining to World war veterans except an estimate of less than $10,900,000, because all the balance pertaining to World war veterans refers to veterans whose disabilities have been iroved and admittedly are of direct service origin. The statement, therefore, classifies all the disabled as jresumptive when only 29,258 of the World war veterans affected are now in that category. The review joards, last summer and fall, acknowledged that all the others heretofore in the presumptive class, had satisfied the new rulings requiring that they show their disabil- '.ties were caused directly by service. Service Connection Proved. "Of the stated total, less, than $43,000,000 will go to World war veterans. "Approximately $31,308,000 of the 543,000,000 will be for restoring service connected compensation to admittedly service disabled back to what it was prior to March 20,1933. "The veteran who was rated as a service connected case who received 550 on March 19, 1933, will receive J50, under the new law, unless and until the veteran's administration re-examines, him and places him in a different degree of disability .rating. "The World war veteran who was left off the rolls last summer, by the review board, will receive 75 per cent of what he was paid on March 19, 1933, until and unless the government shows that his disability was not due .to service, or, re-examines him and places him in a different degree of disability rating. His status for such compensation will be permanent so long as bis disability remains the same. Smallest Item of Bill. "The expenditure provided for the World war veterans is the smallest item of the measure passed. The bulk of the total for World war veterans goes to service disabled from whom no American citizen desired any money taken at any time. The measure restores an estimated $31,308,000 to that class of veterans. "Of the World war veterans in the presumptive category -- the some 29,000 who receive 75 per cent of their former compensation--90 are nervous, shell-shock, insane or tubercular cases. The additional money provided for them will not reach the official estimate of $10,900,000 because some of them have died, neglected and destitute, during the last year."

HOT TIRE--SO HOT IT IS ORIGIN OF FIRE IN PLYMOUTH PLYMOUTH, April 4.--Charles Molesberry, manager of the Farm- :rs' elevator at PIraouth, drove home from Mason City after 6 o'clock Tuesday night and noticed, as he crossed the railroad tracks into town, that the rear right tire had gone flat. Because the tire was old, he did not stop to change it, but drove on to the elevator and left the car in the driveway of the building. When he got out of the car, he noticed that the fabric of the tire had broken out, so did not even bother to pull it off but went on to supper. About 8:20 o'clock a neighbor called and said he thought a fire had started at the elevator. Mr. Molesberry rushed over to investigate. Another person headed up town noticed something wrong and arrived at the same time as Mr. Molesberry. When they got inside, they found the flat tire on Mr. Molesberry's car a circle of flame. One turned in the fire alarm and the other got out a small chemical tank and with the assistance that soon came the fire was put out with no damage to the elevator. The car was damaged considerably.
