World war veterans should not be
higher, according to the Interpretation
of state Insurance laws made by Gov.
A. 11. Smith of New York.
The executive's ruling came In re- |
sponse to a protest from Department
Commander B. E. Spafford of the
American Legion In New York, who
said that certain veterans found It
difficult to obtain employment because
their physical condition Increased '
rates for workmen's Insurance olTered
by private concerns.
According to Commander Spafford,
the veterans had been accepted only
as extra hazardous risks, and the Le
gion sought clarification of the state's
attitude by word from the governor.
"1 can state to you," wrote Governor
Smith to Commander Spafford, "that
the state insurance fund does not con
sider veterans suffering from a partial
disability as extra hazardous risks,
end takes no action, directly or Indi
rectly, whether In premium rates or
merit rating, which would In any way
discourage employment of partially
disabled veterans. Each accident Is
considered on the merits of the acci
