approximately 600 men in I'matlHa,
county who will be eligible to rccclv

the measure in passed by the people
In the special election.
Another provision of the act would
give the service man the privilege of
electing to take a cash bonus am

spent in the service, minus the JU0

tho cash bonus, there would remain
4 00 to tuke the loan.
The records of the government
show that the uvcrase length of time
spent In the service was ten months,
and If from this Is deducted the 6u

provides shall bo exempted from any
