tent, coinpounilrd annually. The
total amount would be "approximate
ly equal to J,01S timet the adjusted
service credit ol the veteran.
Credit Limit U2S.
This credit would be figured on
the basis of $l.J5 for each day of
over if aervire and It for each day
for home aervice, hut in no event
could the credit exceed $500 in the
i ate of a veteran who performed no
ovrraeat aervice and $6.5 tn the rae
of a veteran who served oversea!
Prior to September to), 19J5, any
nauonai panic, or any pbiik or irusi
company incorporated under the laws
of any ttate; territory, poncsMoii or
i he District of Columbia would be
authorized to loan to a veteran on
the certificate any amount not in ex
cess of 50 per cent of the adjusted
aervice credit, plus interest at 4 I -J
per cent from October I. 19.'-'. The
loan would have to mature not later
than September 30, 1925, and the rate
of interest charged by the bank could
not exceed by more than 2 per cent
a year the rate charged at the date
of the loan for the discount of SX
day commercial paper by the federal
reserve bank in the federal reserve
district in which is located the bank
making the advance to the veteran..
If a veteran defaulted in tile pay
ment of principal and interest to the
bank for six months after maturity
of the loan, the bank would be re
quired to present the veteran's note
and certificate to the treasury not
earlier than May 30, 1925. and
not later than October IS, 1925, and
the government would cash the cer
tificate. The bank would be paid the
principal and interest tip to the date
of payment by the government, and
the veteran, if living, or. if dead, his
beneficiary or his estate, would be
paid the difference between the
amount paid the bank and 80 per cent
of the loan value of the certificate
at the time of its receipt by the
Make Loans Direct.
After September 30, 1925, the gov
ernment would make loans directly
to veterans on the certificates. From
that date to October 1, 1928, the
maximum of such a loan would be
S3 per cent of the sum of the ad
justed service credit) of the veteran
plus interest from October 1, 1922,
at 4 i- per cent, compounded an
nually. If the loan were made after
October 1, 1928, the loan value would
be 70 per cent of the adjusted serv
ice credit increased by 25 per cent
and interest thereon from October
1, 1922, to the date of the loan, at
4 1-2 per cent, compounded annual
Advances by the aovernment
could be repaid upon an amortization
plan by means of a fixed number
of annual installments sufficient to
cover (1) interest on the unpaid
principal at the rate of 4 1-2 per
. cent and (2) such amount of the
principal as would extinguish the
debt within an agreed period not cx
ceedwfj the life of the certificate.
Should a veteran default in any
payment for a period of one year, the
certificate would be declared forfeit
ed. Had he borrowed an amount
less than the maximum authorized
by the bill, he would be paid 80
per cent of the difference between
that maximum and the amount ac
tually borrowed. In the case of the
death of the veteran before the loan
was paid, his beneficiary or his
estate would be paid the face' value
of the certificate less the amount
aue on tne man.
Loans at Postoffices.
Application for government loans
might be made at any postoffice of
a first, second or third class, but
loans would have to be approved by
the secretary of the treasury.
It would be protested that no certi
ficate or right conferred under the
adjusted service title could, except
for the purpose of secunne a loan
from an authorized bank or the gov.
ernment, be negotiable or assignable
or serve as security for a loan.
Any negotiation, assignment or
loan made on the violation of any
provision of the section shall be held
void, says the bill.
If the veteran should die atter
making application for any one of
the optional plans or for the cash and
before the coming into force of the
bill on October 1, 1922, the govern
ment would pay to his estate the
amount of the adjusted service
credit. - .
Veterans electing to take the voca
tional training aid option would be
paid $1.75 for each day of attendance
on or after January 1, 1923, on i
eowse of vocational training prev.
iously approved by the director of
the veterans bureau. The total pav.
ment under this plan, however, could
not exceed 140 per cent of the
amount of the adjusted service credit.
Farm and Home.
Under the farm and borne aid sec
tion, veterans would be paid, in a
lump sum or installments, an amount
equal to the adjusted service credit
increased by 40 per cent upon satis
factory assurance that the money
would be used in the purchasing or

Draft of Ireland's
Dublin, March 7. (By A. P.)
The first draft of the Irish consti
tution which has been completed by
a committee of which Darrell Fig
gis is acting chairman, was sub
mitted today to .the provisional
government for any changes that
are deemed necessary. The consti
tution does not bind its people for
ever to the Irish free state and con
tains nothing forbidding them from
continuing a struggle for complete
independence to reliable sources.
The constitution includes north
east Ulster in the free state. The
six counties would retain the pow-j
ers they now possess, having their
own legislature, functioning similar
ly to the legislatures of the Canada
provinces or the states in the United
States, with certain restrictions. Any
act passed by the Ulster legisla
ture, if contested, would eventually
come before the supreme court for
all Ireland on the question of its
consonance with the constitution. '
