New Veterans’ Bill
Introduced in Senate B» ihe Associated Press. The so-called “G. I. Bill of Rights” which incorporates the American fcegion's views on veterans’ legisla tion was reintroduced in the Senate yesterday by Senator Clark, Demo crat, of Missouri and 77 co-signers, apparently assuring quick approval in that chamber. A Senate Finance Subcommittee held lengthy hearings on Senator Clark's original veterans’ measure and the new bill, slightly revised, must go to the committee again. Described by Senator Clark as “a fundamental bill of rights for the service men and women, represent ing as little as we can do at this time.” the measure provides for hos pitalization and education of vet erans at public expense, permits cheap Government loans for vet erans to purchase homes, farms and businesses and authorizes a maxi mum of 52 weeks of unemployment compensatin ranging from $15 to $25 a week within the first two years after discharge.
