H. H. Raege Represents Or
ganization of Disabled Sol
diers At Hearing.
The Disabled American Veteran*
yesterday urged the House Appro
priations Committee to speed up
the national hospitalization program j
and allot $300,000 of the $4,000,000
already provided for the completion
of the Mount Alto Hoapltal on Wis
consin avenue. j
The mental cases should be
moved from county and city insti- j
tut ions into Federal hospitals and
provision should be made to have I
the Veterans' Bureau reinstate the I
insurance of thousand; of men I
whose policies have lapsed since j
the war. declared H. H. Raege, who j
J represented the national organiza- j
tion at th?s hearings. He said in,
It is my understanding that i
the greater part of this $4,000,000 l
will be used for that portion of
the permanent hospital building !
program providing beds for men
suffering with neuro-psychlatric
disability. There are still thou- j
sands of such sufferers in city, j
| county and State institutions
where they receive no modern
medical attention. In the past
few years, particularly since the
war, great strides have been
made by the medical profession
in salvaging personi suffering
from nrvoui diseases. It be
hooves the Government to assist.
Th?? appropriation recommended
by the Bureau of the Budget for
vocational rehabilitation is ap
proximately $20,000,000 less than
I the amount authorized by the
I Independent Office* Appropriation
I bill for this fiscal year. Laws
i made heretofore by Congress
j hav.e required first that any man
j who believed he was entitled to
i vocational training must have
; made a claim prior to December
; 15. 1922. and secondly that train
ing must begin within a pre
l scribed time. Owing to this fact

IRTiES INSURANCE REFORM.
Under a previous appropriation
act, restrictions were imposed
1 upon the insurance division of
the Veterans' Bureau prohibit
ing it from soliciting former serv
ice men to reinstate insurance.
Our organization believes that
law is a mistake. It should be
repealed. The grt atest monetary
gift, the greatest economical gift
j to the nation as a whole was
, the opportunity extended by this
Government to about 5.000.000
j persons to acquire insurance.
The Veterans' Bureau, instead
J of l>einer restricted on this matter.
should be authorized to reinstate
| the insurance of every former
} service man. if it is possible. A
limit upon the total expenditure
to be made for this purpose
could N? easily arrived at. The
Insurance will forestall old-age
pensions, even now looming on
the horizon, as several bills have
been introduced providing pen
sions for men incapacitated in
j civilian life.
