H GH COURT UPSETS
BONUS LOI POLICY
Use of Money by Veteran
Cannot Be Restricted.
RELATIVES ARE BARRED
Supreme Tribunal ot State Holds
Army Service Prior to June 3,
1915, Not Covered by Act.
SALEM, Or Oct. 10. (Special.)
The practice of the world war, vet
erans' state a.id commission in ad
ministering' the' loan feature of the
so-called bonus act was upset here
today when the Oregon supreme
court held that an ex-service man
who is eligible to a loan and who
obtains such loan on realty security
is not required to use the money for
the purchase of a farm or home. He
may use the loan for any purpose
that he may desire, the court ruled.
The opinion was written by Jus
tice Rand and reverses the decision
of Judge-Kelly of the Marion county
circuit court. Both the members of
the world war veterans' state aid
commission and Judge Kelly had in
terpreted the act to mean that the
money obtained through loans was
to be applied to the payment for a
farm or home and could not be used
for other purposes. A similar inter
pretation was igven the act in an
affirmative argument appearing in
the voters' pamphlet at the time the
measure was submitted to the elect
ors at the 1921 election.
Other Decisions Upset.
The case was brought by Frank
Tl . Moore against the commission
ard was one of four test suits de
cided by the supreme court today.
Ail of the cases were begun in the
Marion county circuit court, but
were appealed to the supreme court
by the plaintiffs following adverse
decisions by Judge Kelly.
Another of the suits was brought
by Cicero F. Hogan to determine
whether the commission has author
ity to deprive the applicant for a
loan the right to use real estate
owned by his mother or other rela
tives mentioned in the act as secur
ity for the loan, though he himself
may have no title in- the property.
The supreme court held for the
plaintiff fn this suit, with the "re
al It that Judge Kelly was reversed
and the case was remanded. .
In an action brought by Sallie A.
Carson, the supreme court held that
in event of the death of an appli
cant the relatives mentioned in the
art do not have the right to procure
the loan to which he would have
been entitled and that such pro
vision is unconstitutional. The de
cision of Judge Kelly in this case
al.io was reversed by the supreme
court and the action was remanded.
Service Limit l-XahiiNhed.
In a suit brought by William F.
Faulman the supreme court held
that a man who was in the army
service prior to June 3. 1915. is not
entitled to the benefits afforded
by the bonus and loan act. The de
cision of Judge Kelly in this case
wap affirmed by the supreme court.

This is to urge you, in fairness to your

That dingy film
Your teeth are coated with a viscous
film. You can feel it with your tongue.
It cUngs to teeth, gets between the teeth
and stays. Most tooth troubles and most
dingy teeth are now traced to film.
Film absorbs stains, making the teeth

Dental science has long been seeking
ways to fight that film. Two effective
methods have been found. One acts to
curdle film, one to remove it. And this is
done gently, day by day, without the use
of harmful grit.
Able authorities have amply proved
these methods. Now leading dentiste, all

Modern research also shows that tooth
pastes based on soap and chalk are wrong.
Being alkaline, they reduce the salivary

They reduce the alkalinity of the saliva,
