PROMISES SOLDIER BONUS
Says Tax Burden To Be Increased If
Necessary-Interviewed by Amer
ican Legion Delegation.
Washington.-An American Legion
delegation was told by Senator Pen
rose of Pennsylvania, senate finance
committee chairman, that he would
favor increases in federal taxation if
necessary to provide for the provision
of cash bonus for ex-soldiers. He
doubted, however, 'whether the legis
lation could be put through during
'the present congress.
Senator Penrose and Senator Mc
Cumber. Republican, North Dakota,
who has charge of the bonus bill,
were interviewed by the American
Legion representatives, including F.
W. Galbraith of Cincinnati, national
commander, and Gilbert W. Bettman
of Cincinnati, chairman of the legion's
"I further told the committee." said
Senator Penrose, "that the country
was in a very bad financial situation
and hardly able to meet its require
ments, and that revenue would fall
off to a very marked degree in the
next fiscal year.
"At the same time I confided that
it was the duty of the government to
provide the revenue for this patriotic
purpose and were it necessary that
an added tax be levied I would favor
these taxes at this short session, but
it is obvious that this is impossible."
