DIAL 2-3311 FOR NEWSPAPER SERVICE The Truth Regarding Mr. Clark And The Veterans VETERANS REPORT An Independent Factual Newspaper For Ex-Servicemen, ublished In Washington PRINTED THE FOLLOWING THIS WEEK BAYARD CLARK PUSHES VET BILL ON HOUSE SIDE Report presents this week another real friend of the veteran. This fellow is not a rousing handsaker and back-patter, but a quiet, sincere and actual sympathizer with the fellow who has been to war. He is Bayard Clark, a Democrat of Fayetteville, North Carolina, and a member of the powerful House Rules Committee. He is now serving his ninth term—a tribute to his sincerity and efficiency as a member of the House of Representatives Because the Rules Committee is an exclusive group, Mr. Clark has no other committee assignments. His presence on that committee is largely responsible for hurrying to the floor many bills designed to benefit war veterans and their dependents. .That has been acknowledged for a long time here in the Capital. TWO SONS IN WAR He, himself, has not taken part in fighting. But two of his sons—the only two, were in "the recent conflict. Mr. Clark was born in 1882, and so was a little too old for the First World War. Aside from his many contribu tions during the last war, Mr. Clark established contact with many GI’s from North Carolina, and kept them informed through newsy letter* twice each month. VOTED FOR BONUS Some of you veterans of World War II don’t know his record in be half of the 1917-18 fellows. Some things he did were to vote for the bonus; the granting of disability allowance to non-service connected cases, which the Economy Act of 1933 repealed. And he was one of 137 out of 435 who voted against such repeal. He voted to grant a small pensions to widows of non-service connected veterans and again he voted for extension of veterans’ facilities throughout the country. Some call him Judge”, and some call him “Congressman”, and oth ers just plain Mister . But every one of them knows they can call him friend. REPORx takes pleasure in saluting legislators of this character. Vote and Renominate J. BAYARD CLARK Congressman Next Saturday , ^aid Politlca-l Adv. by Friends of Mr. Clark.
