Modified Veterans Pension Bill
Excludes Those Still Able To Toil
WASHINGTON. May 12 OB
A dissension-split House Vet
erans Committee Wednesday ap
proved a modified pension bill add
ing about $10,000,600,000 to exist
ing veterans benefits over the
next 50 years.
The new bill in effect liberalizes
and writes into law regulations of
the Veterans Administration al
ready in force for disabled and
needy veterans.' It is a follow-up to
a hundred-billion dollar measure
which failed to pass.
The final committee product
contained an amendment by Rep.
Teague (D-Tex) barring pensions
for veterans able to work more
than half time. . "
The-' unemployability require
ment was hotly opposed by Chair
man Rankin (D-Miss). He voted
against it in Committee and
threatened to carry his fight
against his own Committee's bill
onto the floor of the house.
Emerging from the committee
room, where members drew up a
final draft behind closed doors,
Rankin told reporters:
"The Teague amendment cuts
out six-sevenths of the World War
I veterans aged 65 or over. It is
the worst blow they have received
to date since the economy act of
1933."
The economy act reduced vet
erans pensions.
As the bill now stands, it estab
lishes pension benefits totaling ap
proximately a billion dollars a
year through the year 2000.
The new version was put to
gether by the Committee as a
"reasonable" counter-proposal to
the criticism which greeted the
earlier bill: that it was much too
expensive.
In brief, the latest bill would
provide $72-a-month pension bene
fits for needy veterans of both
world wars at age 65. It also would
set up benefits ranging from $60
to $72 in cases of total disability.
Fewer Building Jobs In
West During April Noted
PORTLAND, May 12 CP)
The number of building jobs
started in the West in April de
clined under the same month a
year ago, the trade magazine
Western Building reported yester
day. The bulk of the drop was in
California, the magazine said.
Permits issued for 247 cities and
counties totaled 34.649 with a
value of $162,872,392 compared
with 27,978 permits valued at
$200,496,510 in April, 1948.
While the construction value In
the 25 leading cities declined, the
situation was spotty. Some reg
istered substantial gains. The
total was $106,573,205 last month
compared with $108,840,324 in
March and $125,029,222 in April
last year.
The state of California pro
duces two per cent of the world's
wine.
