out that the, present Jaw, making
the adjutant general, ; removable
oniy for cause Or inefficiency ,was
passed back Jn 1969 When Finser
was adjutant general and Oswald
West was governor and therefore
was not the work of . the present
National guard organization, as ,
had been charged. 'Chairman
Cowgill stated that the old law
affecting the tenure of the Guard
commander had been merely re
affirmed by the 1921 legislature
in a new code that had been Writ
ten to coordinate the state laws
with the national laws, under -the
new scheme of national defense
adopted by congress In 1920.
After several hours Of discus
sion at the hearing the ; Whole
committee j decided - to .pass '.the
matter along to the state's legal
department and thus end .any fur
ther question as to the meaning
of the laws concerned. ,
After quoting and analyzing the
state and .federal -statutes con
cerned, Mr. Van TVinlTe, InThls
decision, holds that the present
law provides the governor with an
adpquate procedure, should he
desire to use it. After exhaust
ing the subject of the court martial-

fact that where ' there Is any Con
flict between tho state and fede
