146 loans totaling 88,918.78 to
soldiers on m aneuvers in the
Bend area and to Camp Abbot
troops during July, Mr. Frank J.
Dunning, field director, reported
yesterday. Thirty-eight loans to­
taling 82,187 w ere to Camp Ab­
bot personnel. The office also
handled 394 cases for Abbotmen.
Of the entire am ount, $470
might well be considered an o u t­
rig h t grant, Mr. Dunning said.
"G ran ts” were made to 10 sol­
diers whose financial position
precludes the possibility of col­
lecting. One such loan of 830 w as
made to a Camp Abbot soldier.
Loans w ithin the cam p prob­
