"Application for Ijenefit allowed by
the fund are now leing printed and it
i hoped to have the first iUota ready

O'Connell said today. Approximately
$0,000 has been made available for

The original endowment is $2,000,000
with a $50,000 emergency, an eighth

Every ex-service man or '. woman
who desires to take advantage of the
fund must subscribe before his or her

committee urges that extreme care be
taken in checking and awarding the
funds to stringent cases.
"The $0,000 now available is an im
mediate relief and because of it be
ing limited local posts are urged to
show great care in exercising reviews
of eases and recommendations made
upon them," Mr. O'Connell said. "This
fund is open to 308 posts in the state
and with knowledge of many cases
that now are pressing and legitimate,
these cases should be considered first.'
