TO PROTECTjIS SERVICE
(Br AuscUted PrM
Indianapolis, July 9 National
headquarters of the American Le
gion has taken steps to prevent mis
use of government benefits for ex-
service men, according to a state
ment made today by Lemuel Bollcs,
"It has been brought to our at
tention that a few men have delib
erately falsified claims for compen
sation, vocational training and med
ical treatment," said Mr. Bolles.
"Considering the. large number of
wounded veterans who are entitled
to every benefit the government can
give, the number of imposters is not
large. But, few as they are, their
action works a hardship on the disabled.
"Cases of deception have been
more- numerous lately, due to the
rush of claims, following the Le
gion's fight for government efficien
cy. However, the Legion will find
time and means to expose any im
posters who come to us for assis
tance in pressing their claims."
All Legion poss have been in
structed to furnish government bu
reaus with information they obtain
about men concerning whose disabil
ity any doubt exists. The post ac
tivities in favor of the genuinely
disabled will continue.
