Passage of Bonus Bill Next Week Seems a Certainty Washington, August 22: Passage of a bonus bill in the senate by the middle of next week with approximately 30 votes against it, seemed assured today. This was evidenced in an announcement of several separate polls of the senate. Chairman McCumber, co-author of the bill, predicted that a substantial majority over two-thirds, will advance the measure to the president for his signature. Opponents are lining up for a battle on the grounds that the nation cannot stand any added financial burden which the bonus it is estimated, will impose to an extent of $4, 000,000. McCumber and other staunch supporters were ready to contend that the bonus is in reality a government obligation long overdue to war veter ans. Sell your cream, poultry and eggs at the R.E.
