The Truth Regarding Mr. Clark And The Veterans
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the Economy Act of 1933 repealed.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
REPORx takes pleasure in saluting legislators of this character.
