One important change in ,the orig

mated that this, would reduce the total
ultimate cost of the bonus by per
haps as much as half a billion dollars.
Under this .change the facie value of
the certificate would be the sum of
the adjusted, service pay plus 25 per
cent, instead of 40 per cent as origin
ally proposed plus interest at the rate
of 4 Vt per cent a year, compounded
annually.
The maximum interest rates which
banks could charge in making loans
to the holders of the certificates was
fixed at the amount of the redis

'Under a new provision if a service

ficate a.t its then value and would pay
to the service man the deficit between
that value and tho amount due to the
bank. The value at the end of the

the adjusted service pay plus interest
at the rate of 4%, per cent compound
