National headquarters of the
Veterans Of Foreign Wars has
rent to Marion Post No. 661 of
Salem a reminder that expiration
cf time for filing World war ad
justed compensation applications,
available to all World war veter
an. has been set for January 1,
1 MO.
; With the possibility that con
gress will, refuse further extension
v' time after this date, every V.
F. W. post throughout the conn
trv has been asked to canvas its
membership and World war vet
erans in general In this regard,
advising them of benefits that
wait application.
More than 1,000,000 World war
r?terans hare failed to apply tor
their adjusted compensation cer
tificates, according to government
records as of June 30, 1929. Ap
plications totalling more than .3,
S 00,0 00 have been received and
approved by the government.
The expiration date for filing
applications has been extended
twice in the past as a result of
efforts of the national legislative
committee of the Veterans of For
eign Wars of the U. 8. and other
service organizations, bnt another
extension beyond January 1,
1979, may prove unavailable.
The value of the average cer
tificate outstanding is estimted at
81,000.00 and provides the vet
eran with a twenty year paid up
endowment insurance policy. At
the end of twenty years the vet
eran collects the face sum of his
certificate, or in event of his
death the full amount of the pol
licy goes to his beneficiaries.
Like ordinary insurance poli
cies, these government certifi
cate have an increasing loan
value as the date of maturity
draws closer. ' v "
Veterans who ha vtf delayed thus
far are being urged to act quickly
or run the risk of being deprived
of this government benefit after
January 1st.
Marion Post No. 661 of Salem
and vicinity is making as effort
ta locate any veteran who has not
yet applied for his certificate In

(AP) The shooting and fatal
wounding of Mrs. Gertrude Haw
dins Larine in an apartment here
last night continued to provide a
mystery which police were at
tempting to penetrate before ac
cepting the theory of suicide as
One of the disclosures casting
some doubt upon the suicide the
ory was the absence of powder
burns around the ballet wound in
the temple that caused the death
of the 23 year old divorcee and
secretary of an automobile dealer
here. If she had shot-herself, said
City Autopsy Surgeon Adolphus
A. Berger, there would probably
have been powder burns.
The apartment where she was
found dying was occupied by Lau
rence P. Tulloch, employe of a
local broadcasting studio, and
Tulloch's friend, William Whittle,
Santa Cms broker. Both these
men were being questioned in the
city Jail. Allea Hamilton; son of

many of ns have ever seen
a black bird that was a
brown, bird. That is what a
fanner at Zena reported he
saw recently. A lively flock
of birds had been following
after him as he plowed, pich
ing up insect and worms. In
the flock was one that
seemed to be just like the
others only fa color, betas;
brown like an English spar
row Instead of coal black.
Another in the flock was
a copper color with black
wings flecked with white
feathers. The flock, number
ing all the way from SO to
10 birds seemed to be very
tame, following the plow
quite closely.
Collector of Customs W. B. Ham
