VOL. XUI1—NO. 303 Move Launched To Pay Veterans /'aims in Cash Republicans Seek To Permit Earlier Retirement of Bonds. WASHINGTON, March 17—IUP) —There were strong Indications today that house Republicans will pack a move lo pay veterans for their accumulated leave in cash instead of bonds. The Republicans supported cash payments when the terminal leave i»y bill was brought to the floor last year, but Congress, at the request of President Truman, finally decided on payments in five- year, two and one-half per cent bonds. If thc GOP congressional majority decides to amend the terminal leiicv pay act to give G. I. velerans an opportunity 1 0 convert their Iwnds to cash, it probably will be done by earmarking, for [hat purpose part Of thc fund to be used for puymcnt on the debt. "After all, the terminal leave pay bonds are part of the debt." one Republican sid. "By giving G. I.'s and ex-G. I.'s a chance to take their leave pay in cash, we vi'ill be paying off part of thc debt." He said he denoted if more than hair of the enlisled personnel Molding leave pay bonds would want to cvish them. k. "I don't think anybody would 7 cash those two and one-half per cent bonds unless he needed the c'ish." he said. Cost of terminal leave pay for enlisted personnel of thc armed forces has been estimated at $3,- OOO.OOU.GOl). Rep. Dwlght L. Rogers. D.. Fl.i., sponsor of the bill approved by Congress last year, },as initialed a move to speed action on a new measure to authorize cash payments on application. 2 Hotels Suffer Heavy Fire Loss Units in Clarksdale And Jackson,-Miss., .
