SPANISH WAR VETERANS' BENEFITS

THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 1955

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,
SUBCOMMITTEE ON SPANISH WAR OF THE
COMMITTEE ON VETERANS' AFFAIRS,

Washington, D. c. The subcommittee met, pursuant to call, at 10 a. m., in room 356, Old House Office Building, Hon. Frank W. Boykin, chairman of the subcommittee, presiding.

Mr. BOYKIN. Gentlemen, the committee will come to order.

I just want to say that this is a subcommittee, but we are going to have our great chairman here with us to guide us.

This meeting this morning is to consider some 25 bills which have been referred by the chairman to the Subcommittee on Spanish War. The author of each one of these bills or resolutions has been invited to appear before the subcommittee if he or she wishes to do so. In addition, the United Spanish War Veterans have asked to appear, and representatives of that organization are here. Also the national commander of the Naval and Military Order of the Spanish-American War has been advised of the hearings as have the Retired Officers Association and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

As usual, we have our friends from the Veterans' Administration to express the view of the executive branch.

As is customary in most of such hearings, we will hear first from Members of Congress who have introduced legislation pending before the committee, and then that will be followed by representatives of the United Spanish-American War Veterans.

Without objection, I will insert at this point in the record the text of the bills pending before the committee, as well as reports from the Veterans' Administration thereon, together with other material pertinent to this hearing. (The material referred to follows:)

VETERANS' ADMINISTRATION,
OFFICE OF THE ADMINISTRATOR OF VETERANS' AFFAIRS,

Washington 25, D. C., February 1, 1955.
Hon. Olin E. TEAGUE,
Chairman, Committee on Veterans' Affairs,

House of Representatives, Washington 25, D. C. DEAR MR. TEAGUE: This has reference to your request for a report by the Veterans’ Administration on H. R. 707, 84th Congress, a bill to extend pension benefits under the laws reenacted by Public Law 269, 74th Congress, August 13, 1935, as now or hereafter amended, to certain persons who served with the United States military or naval forces engaged in hostilities in the Moro Province, including Mindanao,
