personally interview former service
Despite the fact that the war ended
more than three years ago, there are
still many veterans entitled to assis
tance of the government offered dis
abled former service men who have
failed to make proper application for
it, according to Mr. Taylor.
"August 9 is the last day claims
may be filed by ex-service men,"
.aid Mr. Taylor in an advance mes
sage to this community. "If a vete
ran believes that he has just claim
against the government for injuries
or other disabilities due to war ser
vice, now is the time tor him to
present hisclaims to the veteran's bu
reau. If the former service man is
not satisfied with the amount of his
present compensation he should take
the matter up with me during my
visit there. Even though the dis
tility may not be compensable under
the present federal laws, filing of a
claim will protect him in case his
trouble becomes aggravated . after
ugust 9. The war veteran who be
lieves that his experiences during the
service has caused a vocational handi
cap in the carrying on of his prewar
occupation should make proper claim
for vocational training at the expense
of the government. The veterans'
bureau is eager , to have all claims
against the government in Oregon
cleaned up this spring and summer."
