DOUBTFUL CLAIMS ARE BE
Yankton, May 16.—Correspond
ence in connection with the distribu
tion of bonus payments by teh board
at Pierre has increased to great pro
portions as the work draws along to
ward its close, and in volume it is
now three times greater than it was
when payments were fifrst started
last fall, declared Fred B. Ray, exec-
utive officer, who is again at home
spending a few days with his family
:tnd attending to private business
matters. This has been an unexpect
ed development of the procedure.
Claims coming in which are incom
or doubtful in any way, must
be investigated. That means letter
writing—to the claimant himself, to
the war department, to the adjutant
general's office, to a member of the
exemption board in his home county,
o rto some one that might be able to
vouch for the man's qualifications as
I (o residence or service.
One letter to each of these doesn't
always suffice to clear up the points
in doubt. Some hundreds of letters
lo the claimants themselves are un-
answered. Addresses are changed
without notifying the board, and one
person refers the board to another.
Within another 60 days Ray hopes
to be able to have the bulk of these
I doubtful cases definitely out of the
way and the board reduced in size.
New claims are still coming in at
late day at the rate of a few
each day. Last Saturday 30 new
claims were received. The board
must take care of them as they come
until the time limit expires next
year. But it is keeping up an aver
age rate of payment of 100 claims a
day, some of which have been ap
proved only after long investigation.
As fast as they are approved they are
paid. Rejections will start shortly
have been proved, up
on investigation, to be ineligible for
bonus in this state. None will be re
jected without thorough investiga
Approximately 30,000 claims have
been filed with the board up to the
present time, Ray said, and there
must be still more to come. More
