With the constant expansion of
the number of office holders and the
continual increase in the number of
boards and commissions, space in
the new Nebraska state capitol is
now at a premium. Attics must
be penetrated; tower space must be
utilized. The duties of the newly
created bodies are so intermingled
that a chart showing the relations
of the various agents of state looks
like a play by play diagram of a
football game.
Efforts to abolish offices and cur
tail salary expenditures have been
unavailing. When the unicameral
amendment put 90 legislators out
of business, the 1935 legislature
added almost as many new officials
to the payroll. A campaign, started
in 1932, to abolish the office of land
commissioner, carried at the polls,
but that official is still connected
with the payroll.
The last session of the legislature
resulted in a heavy increase in
commission membership. Following
the usual course, these commissions
are unpaid at the start.. At the
psychological moment, appropria
tions are sought for salaries.
Senator John N. Norton admits
that the fight to reduce the number
of offices is a stiff oh*. In his short
ballot campaign in the last legis
lature, he did not receive the cordial
support of some of the taxpayers
leagues and organizations interest
ed in saving public funds.
"The state tax levy is only about!
fifteen cents of the tax dollar,” said
a taxpayer’s lobbyist during the
last session of the legislature. “We
are concentrating on the 85 cents.
This sum is spent by local tax dis
bursing bodies.”
In newly created state offices,
according to a student of county
government, the incumbent of the
office gets 7 cents out of each dollar
for salary. The sum of 93 cents is
spent to enable the office holder to
get the 7 cents.
Secretary of Agriculture Bucholz
has been busy forming a non-pen
etrable organization to collect 100

Alert Patrols are on the high
ways to cooperate with the officials
at the ports of entry. When the
highway patrols go to work next

An ambassador from Nebraska
to France is the latest quest of
Governor Roy L. Cochran. He has
been asked by General John J.
Pershing to commission some Ne
braskan who expects to be in
France early in August to repre

services August 1 at Montfauson,
of a monument to the American
troops who served in the Meuse
Argonne offensive.
Bids on projects amounting to
about one million dollars were ac
cepted last week by the state high
way department, but three bids are
rejected as too high, and they will
be readvertised. One of the bids
rejected was on bituminous njat
shoulders for seventeenths of a
mile of pavement between the city
of Omaha and the Omaha airport.
Another was on surfacing 8.5 miles
of highway between Lakeside and
Antioch in Sheridan county with
bituminous sand. The third was for
the construction of a bridge on
highway No. 3 over the Blue river
at Beatrice. The design of the
structure of this will be altered.
John G. Aldrich, president of the
Nebraska State Safety council, pre
sided over the meetings of a two
day convention of that organization
which opened at the Hotel Fon
tenelle in Omaha Monday morning.
Among the chief speakers were
Gov. R. L. Cochran; Harold Baker
of the American Red Cross at St.
Louis; Miss Marion Telford, child
safety consultant of the national
safety council; Captain L. W. Pren
tiss of the United States army en
gineer corps; Lew Wallace, motor
vehicle administrator for Iowa;
Paul Shrickler of Chicago, director
of field service for the national
safety council; and J. F. Miller of
Kansas City, district director of
the interstate commerce commis
sion, buerau of motor carriers. At
the banquet Monday night, Fred W.
Sargent, president of the Chicago
and Northwestern railway, was the
chief speaker, and J. E. Davidson of
Omaha, acted as toastmaster.

Unless the constantly widening
gap between government income
and outgo is closed, writes Roger
W. Babson, one of the outstanding
American economists, six financial

means unwillingness to lend the
government money to pay its bills.

Only an aggressive public demand
for retrenchment and a balanced
budget can save us from the “six
steps to ruin" Mr. Babson describes.
