Money Available for Vet Loans Relief for veterans whose sub- sistance checks are slow in starting could be seen this week in two recent actions of the loan fund board. More money has been made available for the Men's Union Loan fund for short term, non-interest loans; and part of the Victory Loan fund has been made available for small loans to veterans at 3 percent. The* Men's Union Loan fund of $500 was exhausted last semester because of the heavy drain upon it by vets. This fund Was given out-, right $221.61 from the Victory Loan, fund, an amount which was oversubscribed to the $3750 goal set by students and faculty in 1943, when the fund was -established. The men's union fund is for the use of all meh students, and lends very small amounts for short terms at no. interest. The second action of the loan fund board made $750 of the Victory Loan fund available immediately for veterans. Small loans (usually under $25) will be made at 3 percent interest instead of the 6 percent Which this fund was intended to charge. The Victory Loan fund, as originally set up, was to make loans to veterans of World War n and their children. Victory bonds in the amount of $3750 were to be held until maturity, at which time their value would be $5000, before the fund began operation. The loan fund board pointed out, however, that the 3 percent interest charge Would bring into the fund the same amount of accrual as would be added by the government interest.
