After casting about for ways and means to finance a soldier bonus plan, the Republican members of the committee having this legislation in charge have finally hit upon a plan to put It across with least possible cash Investment. The idea is to is sue certificates to soldiers on which he can borrow from a bank half tlhe face value until 1925. The soldiers are to be allowed $1.00 per day for home service and $1.25 per day for overseas service. It Is said the average payment will be about $330. The plan looks fairly good, hut we imagine that the soldier will make a pert inquiry the first thing a? to what the Ibank is going to do to him? If they oan disabuse the minds of the soldiers of the suspicion that this legislation is really a soldier bonus and not a bank bill they have chances to get on swimmingly and with the rest of the American pub lic we hope congress will be satis fying on this point.
