Issuing Bonus Bonds On June 16th TO GET CASH, TURN BONDS OVER TO P. O.; CHECK WILL BE SENT World War veterans will begin setting their bonus bonds Tuesday, June 16. It is expected that the first week’s distribution will cover about 60 per cent of all veterans entitled to the bonus.

Here is the procedure to be fol lowed: A veteran will receive his bonds in registered mail. They will be in $50 denominations, and odd amounts will come with them in the form of checks. For example, if a man has $5 25 coming tjb him, there w'ill be 10 bonds and a check for $25. The registered package will be delivered only to the addressee in verson. If he is not known to the postmaster of his town or to the carrier Ion his R. F. D. route, he must be identified. If he wants to turn his bonds into cash, he sur renders them at the post-office through which they came and gets an interim receipt. If the post office is not one of the 241 desig nated as a paying office, the bonds are forwarded tjo the nearest one so designated, where checks will be drawn and mailed to the veterans. The bonds bear interest at the rate of 3 per cent a year, but no interest is payable on any bonds redeemed prior to June IS, 1937. Through a radio broadcast Satur day, June 13, Postmaster General Farley will give veterans all neces sary information about the pay ment of the bonds.

The court’s decision described Whitehead as "an individual who had inherited a great fortune who had never earned any money, ex cept for a short time when he was in the Navy in the World War.” It added that he "led a life of leisure as a so-called sportsman” in Paris from 1921 until 193 5. During those 14 years, the court found, he had spent six weeks each season at Cannes and Deauville, and while "not a professional gam bler” frequently had "indulged in that alluring pastime, but was never a winner when he left the casino.” "The decedent (Whitehead) had made a study of the game and knew that the odds were against | him, but he pitted his luck against i the odds and lost,” the decision I read. 1 Whitehead’s testimony that he had played for a profit to meet - mounting expenses "in a game ! where he had consistently lost ftor years and realized the odds were against him,” the court’s decision declared, "overtaxes our credulity ■ and stretches credence to the break ■ ing point. * * * I "Profit is not what usually motl j vates the continued playing; it i: the thrill and exhilaration whicl are inherent in taking a chance. who think that 4o limit relief ti the actual necessities of those whi are really in need is a hard-heartei inhuman procedure.
