brought by law within the permitted
class of henellclarles.
In the particular case submitted by
tlio Veterans' bureau for decision, an
lUtempt was made by an enlisted man
to claim an allowance for his aunt,
who, he showed, was absolutely de
pendent upon lilin for support. At that
time the claim was disallowed becauso

In this case, however, stood In loco

Following the discharge of the en

class to whom allowances might bo
made to Include "persons who have

In view of this retroactive provision
