That experience revealed-the modern i
need of rebrgahization along purely
liuslness lines. The advantages of a
democracy in government need not
be recounted. It has been hold. by
experts at -it involves a disadvan

by tho tow-making power without)
sufficient Knowledge of the need of
the seryice or the possibilities of ""ex
travagance. Tho answer to this is
tho budget system, No successful
business enterprise of any . size can
operate without it. For a Hundred 1
years, tne ;euerai unit, and tho states
as- well, made appropriations without
determining tho difference between
department need and caprice, at tho
stime time, paying little uttention to
the relation as between income and
oxpense, ' Many of the states havo

success that carries no.excdption Ef

Since tho last national conven

world war has been fought, historic,
unprecedented. 'For many, many
months, civilization hung in tho bal
ance. In the despair of dark hours,
it seemed as though a world dictator
was inevitable, and that henceforth
men and women who had lived In
freedom would stand at attention, in
the tape of the drawn sword of mili
tary autocracy. Tho very soul of
America was touched, as neve.r before
with a fear that our libertieswere to
be taken away. What America did,
needs no reiteration here. It is
known of all then. History will ac
claim it poets will find it an in
spiration throughout the ages. And
yet there is not a line in the Repub
