Measure to He Reported Out
of Senate Committee
for Final \ ote
White House Next Stop
Washington, April 12.—The soldier'*
bonus bill tonight was on Its way to
enactment by congress. Only passage
by the senate remains to be accom
plished before the bill goes to the
White House and this Is looked for
Overriding the objections of demo
crats, the senate finance committee
today reported the bonus bill passed
by the house, providing 20-year en
dowment Insurance policies for vet
erans of the world war. Cash pay
ments were proposed only In cases
where the amount of the bonus
totalled $50 nr less.
Defeated In efforts thus far to pro
vide also a cash option, democrats
through Senator Simmons, democrat
of North Carolina, announced they
would introduce a cash payment
amendment Monday or Tuesday.
The bonus was ordered reported
without a formal vote, and It was
decided to lay the hill formally before
the senate Tuesday. Senator King,
democrat of T'tah, was the sole mem
ber oP the committee to announce op
position to the btll.
t'nable to reach a decision today.
Senator Smoot, republican of I'tah.
i hnlrmnn, called a meeting of the rom
mlttee for Monday to determine
whether the bonus or the tax hill shall
be givpn preference In the senate.
Democrats, according to Senator
Walsh of Massachusetts, were united
to demand legislation first. They do
not want to lay themaelves open to
the possible charge that thev delayed
enactment to tax legislation.
Assured of Majority.
Virtually assured of a majority In
the senate, republican leaders Insisted
that the bonus be given the right of
way. Senator Smoot pointed out that
final detedmination of the amount of
tax reduction depended on the bonus
hill. Should the bonus he ordered
taken up first, as seemed certain fmm
a poll tonight, It Is not believed the
senate would consume more than a
week In passing It.
Committee experts declared that ap
proximately 9,000,000 veterana would
tie ellglbte to the Insurance provided
by the hill. At today's session the
committee elso added a provision thst
11,000 women who served In a clerical
capacity In the navy and marine
corps el.gihte to the bonus.
Estimates thst varied as much as
$1,500,000,000 were given as the cost
of the bill. The highest figure, IV
(tso.000,000, was presented by Joseph
McCoy, actuary of the treasury: the
lowest. $2,220,000,000 by John Thomas
