URGES ACTION FOR
THE SERVICE MEFN
Thomas Taylor Tells Senate Commit,
tee Ills Hen Don't Want "Bonus."
Washington, June 9.-During imme
diate action in behalf of the service
men, John Thomas Taylor, vice-chair
man of the legislative committee,
.American 'Legion, told the senate fin
ance committee of the senate today
that his men did not want a "bonus."
"The word 'bonus' has never been
and is not now in the minds of the
mornbers of the American Legion or
any of the other veteran organizations.
What they believe they are etitled to
is an adjustment of their compensa
tion due to the change in their eco
nomnic condition as a result of the war
and as a result of their participation
in the war.
"The average soldier at the time of
the war, who left his thcn-existlng
circumstances, went away for what
was conceded to be reasonable wages;
he performed his duty to the best of
his ability; he returned to this country
and to his former ocenpation and
found that those men who had remain
ed at their work had increased their
advantages and increased their sav
ings to a tremendous extent; and at
so-and most inportant--that the liv
Ing conditions and costs had gone up
so that he was discriminated against
financially in his po.ition.
"This adjusted compensation bill is
only to remedy that in part-because
it could not be expected that it could
-be remedied in whole-and not only
in the way of a cash payment but more
in the way of an opportunity, and
that the opportunity is really the thing

DIAL WANTS ARMY
PROPERTY FOR S. C.
Senator Working to Secure Surpluus
Road Equipment for Highway
Washington, June 11.-Senator Dial
for some months past has been en
deavoring to secure as nyuch of the
surplus army property as possible in
the way of automobiles and road
equipment for the highway commis
sion of South Carolina.
"I can see no good reason," he said
"for the army keeping its trucks and
letting them rust out in the weather.
As I stated a while ago, last Saturday
I saw hundreds of trucks perhaps at
Camp HollAbird out there in the wea
ther, and my information is they were
put there before the Armistice. I have
telephoned the bureau of roads, but
they told me they had no trucks what
ever at Camp Hollabird. They further
told me that they could use all the
trucks they could get. The trucks I
saw are absolutely new and have never
been used. I cannot see any differ
ence between the war department, the
post office department, or the good
roads bureau, or any other depart
ment. The'property is bought from
the money collected from the taxes of
the people and is paid for out of the
same pocket book. I do not want to
be unfriendly to the war department,
but I do not want to arrogate to
itself the belief that it can take this
property and keep it there and let
it rust out. I can see no better use
for these trucks than for building
goood roads. If the post office de
partment needs some, let the post of
flee department have them. There
should be no antagonism whatever be
tween the war department and any
other department of this government.
To my mind the war department does
not need these trucks, otherwise they
would have used them long before
"I think it would be very well to let
half of them go, but if we sell the
other half, we will get very little for
them; we will throw them away. The
point I am trying to bring to the at
tention of the Senate is that the prop
erty of the United States ought to be
used. It ought not be allowed to runt
out. We should do everything we can
to build up the roads in this country.
I have no ill-will against the war
department. I have a great many
friends in that department, but the
people of this country are a little bit
impatient over their extravagance."
In a word, Senator Dial's position is
that it makes no difference what de
partment has these trucks; that it is
absolutely wrong to allow them to de
teriorate when all the state highway
commissions are begging for them.
Whatever friction may exist between
the war department and any other de
partment, he believes, should cease and
the best use made for the various
equipment in the interest of the people
generally. he said he would continue
his efforts and follow up every pos
sible avenue to secure them for high
ways projects instead of seeing them
rust in many places throughout the
"The people," Senator Dial continu
uedl, "are a little bit impatient over
the extravagance of the war depart
ment. Down in my part of the coun
try last year and year before last that
department allowed the linters to stay

trying to get that department to real
