F. D. IN CARE FOR VJPANS CHICAGO, Oct. 3. (4*)—A four point rehabilitation program for World War veterans, differing sharply in one respect from Pres. Roosevelt’s outlined policy, appar ently was a step nearer adoption to day by the annual convention of the American Legion. For .All Soldiers Despite the president’s statement to the Legion yesterday that veter ans suffering from ailments incur red since the war mav receive fed eral hospitalization only if their local and state communities are un able to take care of them, the Le gion's rehabilitation committee ap proved a plan for hospital treat ment, for all ex-soldiers of the World War. regardless of wher they were incapacitated. The committee's report, made last night, said that “hospitalization un der federal government auspices be afforded all veterans not dishonor ably discharged who require hospi tal treatment and who are not able to reasonably pay for their own treatment ” Other Points Sought The other points in the program, which has been approved by 43 of the state departments, are: “That no war veteran disabled in the line of duty shall suffer any reduction of those benefits granted such veterans as in the World War Ceteranr’ act in effect prior to March 20. 1933. “That perpetuation of service for all veterans properly granted such connections under laws in existence prior to March 20. 1933. be rec ommended. “That benefits provided for de pendents of veterans as establish ed in the World War Veterans’ act bj-r/esumed and maintained as the Aemmpnt’s policy and that in no ■Int shall widows and dependent children of deceased war veterans be without government protection.'' Plan Big Parade At the same time the committee tabled resolutions asking an investi gation of Gen. Frank T. Hines, ad ministrator of the veterans’ affairs at Washington, but despite his ac tion members of the Pennsylvania delegation, who presented one of the anti-Hines measures, said that the matter would be carried to the convention’s floor. They charged that Hines had mismanaged his of fice. But today the veterans were will ing to forget temporarily the serious business of adopting a rehabilitation program and turn their attention to pageantry displayed in what they hoped would be the greatest parade In the Legion's 15-year history. Records from many cities have proved that the most dangerous time of day for both riding in auto mobiles and walking is ir. twilight hours, because there is neither enough daylight nor artificial light.

I VALLEY STORM! BELITTLED BYi PORTO RICANS (Special to The Herald* HARLINGEN. Oct. 3.— Porto Ricans, who have seen some of their storms tear up 20-year-old citrus fruit trees and pile them up 75 feet high three miles away, don't believe the Valley had much of a blow. Says A. S. Mason of the U. S. Department of Agriculture forces stationed on the island in a letter to Hart T. Longino of the Texas Federal inspection service: The weather bureau informs me your wind varied from 75 to 100 miles an hour. Such little zephyrs are considered afternoon trade winds here. We consider It simply a iittie blow if the winds gets up to only 120 miles an hour and after it passes 150 miles we believe it to be a little windy. “You write aoout noiamg aoors closed. Why ln a real hurricane no three people could hold a door closed if there was a door left to hold. Last year we had 20-year-old grapefruit trees uprooted and piled up about 75 feet high three miles away. The side of one packing house was carried about two miles and at one place we found grape fruit scattered all over a cane field and the nearest tree was about five and one-half miles away. •I do not believe, from the amount of wind you had. that your trees have been injured so thaw they will not have a normal croo next year; in fact, by the time this letter reaches you. I believe that you will see a normal new growtn coming out on the trees that have been badly stripped of leaves and probably within the next two weelis considerable bloom. This has been cur experience after the hurricanes of 1928. 1931 and 1932. Your fruit next year probably will t* two or three weeks late and run heavily to small sizes. Also, if the smaii broken branches are n6t removed, you will have considerable Meianose. We have plenty of trees here that have been partly uprooted three times since 1923 that are bearing almost a normal crop this year...” San Benito High Boasts 59 Seniors (Special to The Herald> SAN BENITO.
