dent Truman in the closing days of
the Congress, which he signed today,
yesterday and Thursday.
Largest single item was the $2,-
431,708,000 to pay for the Terminal
Pay Bill.
World War II veterans received by
far the greatest share of the cash
and other benefits but some money
went to veterans of other wars.
As the bills were being signed,
Gen. Omar N. Bradley, Veterans Ad-
ministrator, said America, in dollars
and cents, has provided for its war
veterans more generously than any
other nation.
Shift Emphasis
But he added "if scandalous condi-
tions" are to be avoided, the time
now has come to shift emphasis from
quantity to quality of opportunities
being provided the American ex-
warriors.
Last week in Milwaukee, at a con-
vention of Spanish War veterans,
General Bradley said that signs of
"scandalous conditions" alredy have
begun to appear in the subsistence
allotment program under the GI Bill
of Rights.
Cites Evils
He said there was a case where one
man, making $600 a month, had said
he was in "training" for another job
paying more money and therefore
entitled to draw $90 a month com-
pensation.
"Obviously this was not the intent
of Congress," General Bradley said.
"This law was intended to help
veterans in need of financial assist-
ance to better themselves. The abuses
ghat have occurred are not criminal,
oecause they were permitted by the
taw. The fault was in a law that
was not precisely worded.

protracted sessions-most of it car-
ried out with a minimum of public
commen t.
On the outside, grasping for any
hints of future decisions in the UAW-
CIO's retrenchment, were union or-

ganizers in danger of the economy
axe.
The union, whose leaders frankly
say that drastic economies are need-
ed, is reported considering the lopping
off of 100 paid organizers from a
staff variously reported at 300 to
350 men.
At the start of the regular quarter-
ly session of the Board Secretary-
Treasurer George F. Addes said the'
union's cash reserve was down to
$100,000. The monthly deficit, how-
ever, is said to have been reduced
from an original $3,150,000 to $70,000.
It was felt certain that some toes.
would be stepped on in any broad re-
trenchment program, which would
serve as another test of President
Walter P. Reuther's efforts to keep
harmony in the UAW's official family.
The union's present problems were
not entirely unexpected, however.
Addes had warned of their possibili-
ties last spring when he secured a
boost in the monthly dues of mem-
bers--from $1.00 to $1.50.
Both Addes andReuther expressed
confidence the difficulties would be
solved although they indicated econ-
omies might have to be severe for
the time being. The union's current
dues-paying membership is set at
696,000, compared to the wartime
peak of 1,242,000.
