Advocates expressed confidence they could obtain senate approval next week. Reps. H. T. Brown of Jacksonville and Bryan Bradbury of Abilene, co-outhors of the proposal, warned that pension grants would have to be reduced 28 per cent, effective ncxl monlh, unless some- Ihing was done. The present average granl Is $13,80 monthly. The $900,000 would be added to the $1,300,000 the pension organization already owes. Under terms of the bill, tho $1,300,000 would have to be paid back next Jan. 1 and the other on June 1, 1940. Gov. W. Leo O'Danlel's attitude on the bill was not known. He had said he was against borrowing money as a governmental principle, but many leglslalors believed he would approve the proposal because of the emergency. Several advocates of tho bill said they would support new taxes to finance pensions but it would be impossible to pass the taxes and start getting the money from them until late next summer. Don't Wont to Go Home. "I don't want to ever go home for a week end," said Brown, "If we let the already 'low pension grants be cut 28 per cent while we are In session. It's Imperative that wo give the pension fund more tax money but we can't possibly do that by March 1." The bill would permit sale o.' $000,000 In new warrants and resale of the $1,300,000 Issue If an Interest rate lower than the 1.9 per cent now paid to a Dallas bank can be obtained.
