HOLDERS CAN BORROW 50
. PER CENT, OF FACE VALUE
By (he Associated l'ress
Washington, March 2. Unanimous
agreement te ellminnte the cash feature
of the soldiers' bonus, except In the case
of men whose adjusted service pay would
net exceed $30, was reached today by
thu special sub-committee of Republi
can members of' the Heuse Wuys und
Means Committee, (e which the whole
bonus question was referred te vester-
In lieu of cash for the ether service
men, it wns agreed te add u new pro pre
vision, te the bonus bill under which the
men ncceptlng adjusted service certifi
cates could borrow immediately en these
certificates .from banks a sum equal te
CO per cent of the total adjusted serv
ice pay, computed at the rate of St n
lny for domestic service nnd $1.23 a
day for foreign service.
Feruney Issues Statement
This official statement of the agree
ment of the sub-cemmlttcc wns issued
by Chnlrmun Ferdncy :
"The sub-cemmlttcc. consisting of
Chairman Fordney, Messrs. Green.
Lonpverth, Hnwley. Trendwuy and
Copley, liuve tentatively ugrced upon
nnd prepared n prevision te be submit
ted which. in substance, is as follews:
"The elimination of the cash feature
of the bonus bill where the veterans
are entitled te mere than $30 adjusted
wjrvice pay, but -adding 11 new lean
prevision te the adjusted service cer
tificate title, which will enable holders
of such certificates te 'borrow from any
national bank or bank or trust com
pany incorporated under the laws of
uny State CO per cenef the sum of
the adjusted service' pay prier te Sep
tember 30, 1023. This date wns fixed
becaube after that time the bill as orig
inally drafted by the committee pro
vides for a larger percentage of lean
by the Government, aiid has net been
changed by the sub-committee."
Veterans' Approval Expected
Chairman Fordney said this plan was
expected te meet with genernl approval,
since it enabled the soldiers who may
be in need te 6btnlli ensh immediately
after the lt-suance of the certificates;
would relieve the Treasury of nny large
cash payment (Hiring the enormous re
funding operations which must be car
ried out in the next two years and
would place no additional tux burden
upon the public. '
Many details of' the proposed amend
ment te the bonus bill remain ta be
worked out, and Mr. Fordney said it
probably would be a week befere the
plan was ready for submission te the
cntlre Republican membership of the
committee. He declared that there
would be previsions safeguarding the
rights of the holders of the certifi
cates and limiting the amount of In
terest which the banks could charge
for the leans.
Governer Harding, of the Federal
Reserve Beard, was befere the sub-emu-mlttec

the Interest rate should npt exceed n

Under another tentative prevision be
