, MAKING OVER THE GOVERNMENT.
Radical steps looking to a more.efficient ad
ministration of public affairs art being consid
ered in Washington. The setting up of a com
prehensive budget plan to deal with revenues
and expenditures is all but assured. It has the
endorsement of both parties in congress, and
in some form will be adopted. When put into
effect, its operations will necessitate certain
changes in administration.
Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler advocates re
moval of all bureaus and commissions save
those having to do exclusively with collection
and disbursement of revenues from the Treasury
department, making , it exclusively a financial
branch of the general government. Repre
sentative Reavis.of Nebraska has a plan which
will carry the Work of reforming the govern
ment a little further. It is proposed by him
that a Department of Public Works be estab
lished, under which will be grouped all the bu
reaus that have to do with the forwarding of
the great projects the government undertakes
continually. These bureaus are now scattered
among the different departments, some of them
being almost entirely foreign to the purpose
for which the department itself was set up.
Careful persons have long observed that the
growth of our government has entailed a very
unsatisfactory arrangement of duties and func
tions at Washington. A readjustment is needed,
and for the good of the public should be
brought about. When a comprehensive budget
plan is adopted, its working out will be facilita
ted by a better location of the bureaus that
spend the money. Some of the existing de
partments may lose a little in importance and
prestige by a .more appropriate and efficient
distribution of their subdivisions, but if such a
move will help out in transactions of public
business, cut out duplication and overlaps, and
minimize waste, it should be adopted without
regard to the fe!ings of any cabinet officer.
Omaha's Sturdy Financial Growth.
Retirement of the active heads of three 1 of
the leading banks of Omaha must naturally
draw attention to the city's financial institu
tions. That these have kept in line with the
progress of the region they serve is evident.
They have expanded as the monetary needs of
the country around have increased, always
maintaining a forward position but on a solidly
conservative, basis. Shocks that have racked
the country in times gene by have scarcely
produced a tremor in the Omaha banks, so
safely have they been conducted. . Yet, with all
the security of sound business principles and
careful management, these great agents of com
mercial and industrial service have so func
tioned as to efficiently aid in the marvellous
growth of the empire of which they are part.
Messrs. Barlow and Millard, who have just
laid off the strenuous duties that come to the
executive head of a great modern bank, have
been financial advisers to two generations of
business men. They have seen faith redeemed
and well directed energy rewarded. Mr. Bost
wick has been identified closely with the de
velopment of the live stock industry in the west,
and through his bank has assisted in bringing
Omaha to its prominent place in the world as
a packing center. ' These gentlemen have 'sur-
rendered to Time, wisely providing for the
continuance of the work they so well begun.
As veterans in business they have earned a
chance to rest ;
Omaha's financial importance is a source of
marvel to any who but studies the clearing
house reports,, but to one who. is better
acquainted with the city and its institutions,
the fact contains no mystery. The banks here
serve a wide territory, peopled -with pushing,
energetic men, who are daily creating more ma
terial wealth from raw material. It is the
natural result of properly directed enterprise.
United States and Scapa Flow.
When Ambassador Wallace, on behalf of
the United States and under instructions from
the State department, declined to accept any
part of the German shipping exacted as repara
tion for the ships destroyed at Scapa Flow, he
opened a new chapter in the settlement of the
war. The German admiral who ordered the
scuttling of the war ships held as hostages, al
though he acted without orders, bound his
country by his act. On this principle indemnity
is demanded for the tonnage destroyed and
Germany is required to surrender a consider
able amount of material and equipment sorely
needed at home. As to the justice of the pro
ceedings no question is made.
The final settlement is to be made by a
commission now engaged in determining what
the Germans can spare, but the allocation of
the award between the victors is already made,
the United States being allowed 2 per cent.
This is respectfully declined. Reasons are not
yet given out by the State department, but may
be made known later. It is kaown, though, that
the United States from the first favored the de
struction of the surrendered naval vessels, re
fusing to accept any of them as additions to
This may seem strange, when it is recalled
that certain Spanish war vessels were added to
the American navy in 1898. Those were ships
taken in battle. The German war ships were
abjectly surrendered. Perhaps the government
feels such vessels would not form an honorable
part of its sea defense. At any rate, the United
States asked no part of the German navy at the
beginning, and now seeks no part of the in
demnity exacted for foolishness at Scapa Flow.
Backward People Coining Forward.
. Very few have ever thought of Morocco
other than, in terms of romance. It is the land
of the Moor, fierce warriors, burning suns, des
ert wastes, and hinterlands from which come
tales set in frames of arabesque, hidden courts,
housetops, mosques and wadys. A few years
ago William, lately the Sudden and now the
Subdued, shot Morocco across the screen by
using it as a stage for one of his prewar dra
matic outbursts. Then it subsided into the
mystery that has surrounded it so long. Now
an American consul drags it forth again to ex
hibit the fact that Morocco -is building up an
industry and an export trade. Goods to the
value of almost $100,000,000 were shipped out
of the country in 1918, and $62,000,000 worth imported-.

For a Budget System
Statement by Nicholas Murray Butler
before senate committee for consideration of
a national budget January 12.
The argument for a national budget system
framed in accordance with the best modern
theory and practice is unanswerable. It is gen-,
erally understood that nothing now stands in
the way of the speedy adoption of such a sysr
tetn save a difference of opinion as to how a
budget may be best prepared for submission to
the congress. The real point is to make the
president responsible for the budget, and
whether his agency in its preparation be a
bureau in the Treasury department or an inde
pendent bureau, is a matter of subordinate im
portance. Personally, I prefer a bureau in the
The budget, however, is not an end in
itself, but a means to a farther end. That end
I conceive to be the establishment of a more
complete understanding and co-operation be
tween the executive and the legislative depart
ments of'the government in the formulation of
national policy and in the transaction of public
business. During the paM 100 years we have
frequently patched out, system of "governmental
administration to meet emergencies, but w'e
have never reconstructed it to meet our modern
The first essential is that the, important gov
ernmental work of each year be regarded in and
through a carefully classified budget. The pres
ident should present his plans and recom
mendations to the congress as a unit, and the
congress should debate and pass upon them as
part of a single well thought out plan. The
chief political event of each year should be the
presentation and adoption of the annual budget.
Upon this the interest of the people and of the
press, as well as of the congress, should and
might be concentrated. There has been some
argument of the point that the preparation of
the budget should be a matter apart from poli
tics. This could never happen in a democratic
form of government. A budget is nothing but
politics; itsis all politics. It is indeed the is
sues of the last preceding campaign reduced to
practice. Legislation for an adequate budget
system will, I think, contain three distinct sets
of provision first, those relating to the prepa
ration and submission of the budget itself;
second, those requiring the presence, of the
heads of executive departments on the floor of
congress at stated times to answer questions
and give explanations relative to budget items
falling within the scope of their several depart
ments, and third, provision far an independent
audit of all government expenditures, not only
as to the correctness of their form, but as to
their economic value, by a public auditor directly
responsible to the legislative department of the
government. ,. y
In my. judgment, these three steps would es
tablish the proper relation between the executive
and the legislature. The legislature would be
the responsible critic of the executive and would
express its criticism through its control of the
purse strings and of the methods of raising
revenue. It would not deal with the executive
departments at haphazard, on hearsay, or on the
basis of newspaper paragraphs, but at first hand
and face to face. Finally, it would have its own
My preference is to have all bureaus and
activities not directly concerned with finance
that may now, be in the Treasury department,
transferred to other executive departments. The
Treasury department should then be oonfined
to the collection of the revenue, to its activities
in connection with banking and currency, and
to the preparation of the annual budget.
I do Wot think any estimates whatever should
be excluded from the budget, either those for
the War and Navy departments, for pub
lic buildings and grounds, for- the
library of congress, for the supreme court,
or for the legislative branch of the government.
It is doubtless true that in practice, some, at
least, of these estimates will not be treated in
just the same way as those for other purposes,
but it certainly will be a grave error to seem to
divide the activities of the government, so far
as the budget is. concerned, into two separate
groups. Moreover, it may well be that at some
given time the policy of a president or that of
the party to which he belongs will largely turn
upon questions of appropriations for the mili
tary and naval establishments. I should omit
nothing from the scope of the budget. Hold the
president responsible, not for part of the ad
ministration of the government, but for all of it
When the budget has been submitted to the
congress, I hope very much that the senate and
the house will both provide for its detailed con
sideration and examination by a single budget
committee large enough to be representative
of the whole house and of the whole senate
without being so large as to become a town
meeting. When the budget has been reported
to the house or to the senate, I would then
require the attendance of the heads of the sev
eral executive departments at stated times, with
the right to participate in debate on matters
relating to the business of their departments
under such rules as the senate and house re
spectively may prescribe. I regard this as one
of the most important steps to be taken in order
to make budget legislation really effective and
to bring the appropriations still more completely
within the knowledge and under the control of
the congress. As senators know,, this is an old
proposal. The classic document on the subject
is report No. 837, submitted to the 46th congress,
third session, on February 4, 1881, by Senator
Pendleton of Ohio, chairman of a select com
mittee appointed to consider a bill (S. 227) to
provide that the principal officer of each execu
tive department may occupy.a seat on, the floor
of the senate and house of representatives. This
report, a most able and convincing document,
was signed by Senators Pendleton of Ohio, Al
lison of Iowa, Voorhees of Indiana, Blaine of
Maine, Butler of South Carolina, Ingalls of
Kansas, Piatt of Connecticut and Farley of
California. There is about it no shadow of
partisanship. It simply expresses a strong de
sire to improve the practical working of our
government in the way suggested. This report
deals exhaustively with the constitutional,
theoretical and practical objections that might
be made to this departure. I cannot do better
than ask senators to study that report. It is
doubtful whether anyone could add to the force
of its arguments. Coming at the close of a
legislative session, it was never acted upon.
This same proposal, when brought forward by
Mr. Pendleton of Ohio 'in 1864, at which time
he was a member of congress, was vigorously
supported then by Mr. Garfield and Mr. Blaine."
It was renewed by the late John D. Long of
Massachusetts when he was a member of the
house of representatives in 1886. It has several
times been publicly supported by President Taft
An independent audit under control of the
congress. Provision for an independent audit
complete the scheme of budget legislation which
commends itself to my judgment. Care must be
taken not to let the public audit develop . into
a source of purely political criticism and at
tack.' It should be strictly a business office to
inform the congress as to whether the moneys
that had been appropriated had' been expended
not only in accordance with law, but wisely and
well. Waste and extravagance which might es
cape detection at the time when appropriations
are made would almost certainly be detected in
the ' public audit.
It would be a great step forward if in con
nection with the establishment of the budget
system congress were to continue the provisions
of the Overman act approved May 20, 1918,
"authorizing the president to co-ordinate or
consolidate the executive bureaus, agenctes and
offices, and for other purposes, in the interest
of economy and the more efficient concentration
of the government" and would strike out the
two limitations now contained in the act so that
the president would be free to propose in his
budget a complete, an effective and a modern
reorganization of the machinery for conducting

Edgar, Neb.. Jan. 13, 1919. To the
Editor of the Bee: I have been read
ing an article In The Bee written by
Ray Stannard Baker, headed. "Un
healthy Condition Among Workmen
the Real Cause for Unrest." Now it
looks to me that Mr. Baker Is writ
ing more in the Interest of the sa
loon and the liquor interests than to
better the condition of the laboring
man, and his article has the tone of
a radical, for he says deportation of
the radicals is not a cure, I suppose
he would leave them here to work
up a conspiracy to overthrow the
government. I say if these ignorant
foreigners cannot live here and be
peaceable they should every one "of

Baker how many successful farmers
there are In this country that does
not work 12 hours a day and seven
days in a week? Ha says the work
in the steel industr is hard and
they cannot stand it to work so
many hours a day. Well, If after
they find that the work is harder
than they can stand let them quit

Sports that Make Men
' Basket Ball Team Play.
By H. O. (PAT) PAGE.
Team work is the cornerstone of
success in basket ball, as in every
other game. It means the working
out of the best system of play for
the whole team. It means that every
man must fit himself into that sys
tem. The team must think and move
as one man.
Several systems of play have
been worked out. .
The lone star system is built upon
the speed, endurance and all-round
brilliance of one man. He plays the
floor and works the ball into his op
ponent's territory, where either, he
or one of the forwards who stay
near their opponent's basket can get
a shot. To do this he must be very
good at dribbling. The other four
men play territory, two as station
ary forwards and two as rough
guards who lay back and fight all
opposition. The drawback to this
system is that if the star is stopped
the' whole team is stopped.
The two-pivot man system uses
three speedy floor men who play the
ball rather than territory, two rangy,

husky men who play, -one as a sta
tionuary forward and the other as a
stationary guard. The stationary
forward is fed the ball at every op
portunity. This system of play usu
ally calls for a pretty extensive use
of the long pass.
In the short pass system four or
five men play the ball. This system
requires the quick, stocky, shifty
type of player with tremendous, en
durance. One tall, rangy guard usu
ally plays under the basket to break
up opponents play and dig out the
ball. Then his four teammates by a
series of short, fast passes work it
back up the floor. This short pass
game must be fast to be successful!
The five-man defense system uses
the whole team as a defensive combi
nation. It goes on the theory that if
your opponents can't get any bas
kets they can't win, while you may
be able to put in a lucky basket or
two. Men play territory. Quick
moving and ability to intercept the
ball without fouling is necessary.
The presence of five men in guard
territory makes it necessary for the
opponents to take long shots. The
danger of this sort of game is the
tendency to play the man and not
the ball. This results in a great
number of fouls.

her left leg stretched as far back
and as high up as possible. Rising
on the ball of her foot, she bent
the upper "leg, rotating the knee

"Here is another exercise."
Elizabeth put her hands on her
hips. Then keeping the body per
fectly straight, she bent one knee,
extending the other foot forward,
and raised her body up and down
10 times. With each bend of the
knee, the free foot swung back and

Why Save Money
The man or woman
who saves money mere-
ly for the sake of the
money itself misses
much of life.
The people who save
for pleasure, for Jife in
surance, for a vacation,
for a home, for a fund
to educate the children,
for business opportu
nities, have discovered
the secret of real suc
cess. Saving in the majority
of cases must precede
these other things.
Form the habit of reg
ularly saving and de
positing weekly in the ,
Savings Department of
the First National Bank
a part of your income
and be prepared for the
big things of life.
