the original cash bonui proposal.
Senators said they desired to get

would contemplate no taxes and
aside from adjusted service certifi
cates, it would provide for vocational
training, farm and home aid and cash
payments to veterans whose adjusted
service pay would not exceed $50.
The so-called reclamation section of
the house bill has been eliminated.
' Approval to Be Asked.
President Harding will be urged
to approve the measure in this form
and will be told that it will impose
no heavy burdens on the treasury
during the next three years, while
the present public debt refunding op
erations are in progress. It is the
present thought of proponents that
the ultimate necessary financing can
he done by use of the foreign debt,
though there is a possibility that the
trscaury may have to issue some cer
tificates of indebtedness to cover costs
in the first year or two. unless funds
from the foreign debt become avail
able meantime. . .
. Estimates given to the majority
today by Joseph S. McCoy, the gov
ernment actuary, placed the ultimate
cost of the new bonus plan at ap
proximately $4,000,000.00f. with the
lirst year vost $77,000,000, the sec
ond year $92,000,000 and the third
year, $376,000,000. The large sum
necessary in 1926 is explained by
reason of the fact that the govern

of the amount of the adjusted ser-

Genoa correspondent for the London
Evening News, in a dispatch to his
Saper this afternoon, quotes Col.

of British oil companies and Royal
Dutch interests here, aa denying that
an industrial agreement was signed
Sunday between these interests and

had been reported.

London, May 2.-(By A. P.)-A
gigantic - industrial agreement was
signed on Sunday at Genoa by repre
sentatives of the Russian soviet gov
ernment and the Shell group of oil
companies, telegraphs the Genoa cor
respondent of the Evening News.
Under the agreement, he writes,
the Shell .croup will control all sales.
and, under certain conditions, all pro
duction of oil in every part of Russia,
for an agreed period. The conces
sion may be renewed by mutual con

' Fifty per cent of the net profits
will be allotted to the soviet govern
ment and .the other 50 per cent to
the Shell group. The working of the
oil fields will be administered by the
companies under the provisions of
the Russian juridical code and the
proviso that not more than 50 per
cent of the workers employed shall
be foreigners. .
The correspondent understands
that the Shell combine has arranged
to apply the agreement almost imme

charge of the "pipe line from Baku
to Batum and also to develop the

various groups against one another
to obtain better offers for the privi
leges." The fields involved, next to
those of the United States, are the
most prolific in the world.
It is more than possible, adds the
correspondent, that difficult c&mpli
cations may result over the working
of important areas in which the
Standard Oil company had conces
sions prior to the soviet nationali
zation of the fields.

"If the soviet delegates do not ac
