the General Assembly may, without laying a tax, borrow an
amount never to exceed fifty thousand dollars to meet tempo-
rary deficiencies in the Treasury, and may contract debts to
any amount that may be necessary for the defence of the State.
And provided further that nothing in this section shall be con-
strued to prohibit the raising of funds for the purpose of aid-
ing or compensating in such manner or way as the General
Assembly of the State shall deem proper, those citizens of the
State who have served, with honor, their Country and State in
time of War; provided, however, that such action of the Gen-
eral Assembly shall be effective only when^ submitted to and
approved by a vote of the people of the State at the General
Election next following the enactment of such legislation.
SEC. 2 And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid,
that the said aforegoing section hereby proposed as an amend-
ment to the Constitution, shall, at the next general election for
members of Congress held in this State, be submitted to the
legal and qualified voters of the State for adoption or rejection,
in pursuance of the directions contained in Article 14 of the
Constitution of this State, and at the said general election the
vote on the said proposed amendment to the Constitution shall
be by ballot, and upon each ballot there shall be printed the
following synopsis of said amendment under the caption of
"Constitutional Amendment Providing For Aid Or Adjusted
Compensation To War Veterans.''
"This amendment removes the prohibition now in the State
Constitution which prevents the State from pledging its credit
for the raising of monies which could be used for the aid or as
adjusted compensation to those citizens of the State who, with
honor, served their Country or State in time of War; and upon
each ballot there shall also be printed the words "For the Con-
stitutional Amendment" and "Against the Constitutional
Amendment", as now provided by law, and immediately after
said election due returns shall be made to the Governor of the
vote for and against said proposed amendment, as directed by
said Fourteenth Article of the Constitution, and further pro-
ceedings had in accordance with said Article Fourteen.
Approved April 9, 1924.
