ADDITIONAL TRAVEL ALLOW.
ANCE FOR SOLDIERS
Attention of returned soldiers in
the Mt. Scott district is called to the
ruling which entitles them to travel
pay at the rate of five cents per
mile to their homes. If you received
travel pay at the rate of only 3H
cents ■ per mile you are new entitled
to collect the additional 1H cents
per mile. Following is the the state
ment issued by the director of fi
nance of the war department:
The director of finance having vir
tually completed payment of*the $60
bonus, involving about 1,400,000
claims, is now settling additional
travel allowance due enlisted men of
the army under section 3 of the act
approved February 28, 1919, which
authorized travel pay to enlisted men
honorably discharged since November
11, 1918, at the rate of five cents
per mile to actual bona fide home or
residence, or placé of original muster
into the service, at the option of the
A blank form of application, which
includes the necessary affidavit for
the additional travel allowance, may
be obtained from any army recruit
ing officer. Red Cross, or other agen
cies organized to aid soldiers. This
affidavit must be accompanied by a
trfte copy of soldier’s discharge cer
tificate, certified as such by a re
cruiting officer, or the original dis
charge certificate, the latter to be
returned with check. While payment
will be made on the original dis
charge certificate, claimants are ad
vised that the use of the copy will
eliminate the possibility of the loss
of the original. No further corres
pondence is necessary except in case
of change in address.
In the event that the actual bona
fide home or residence at date of
discharge, as claimed by the soldier,
is not the same as stated on his
original service record, the zone fi
nance officer will make settlement
for the additional 1(4 cents per mile
on the same basis that the 3% cents
per mile was paid (that is, from
place of discharge to place of entry
into military service), and soldier
may make claim to the auditor for
the war department for any addi
tional travel pay which he believes
may be due him.
A call for help in the strawberry
fields at Hood River has come in
during the past week from a number
of sources. Hundreds of girls and
women—men are not excluded—are
wanted to harvest the crop, said to
be more abundant than usual. Ar
rangements are now being made by
Mrs. Bruce Scott, superintendent of
the Women’s Division, whereby girls
in groups of 50 may go to the berry
fields under competent women who
will have supervision over each group.
The Women’s Division is located in
the Lewis building, comer Fourth
and Oak streets, and Mrs. Scott
wishes all those who desire to go to
the berry fields to register with her
at the earliest possible date.
