subsistence to support a race
which grew from 9000 in IsCt

Out Various Classes
' . 1 ;
The cooperation of Hal E. Host,
secretary of state. In a program
of economy directed by Governor
Meier, was pledged by the former
yesterday In a letter received at
the executive department. Hoss
as a member of the state board
of control passes on all requisi
tions for state supplies.
I classify requests coming be
fore the board of control for ma
terial and services into three di
visions." read Hoss letter, "First
are requests originating in any of
the state boards, commissions or
departments over which the gov
ernor exercises Jurisdiction. With
this group over which exclusive
Jurisdiction rests with the execu
tive. I pledge 100 per cent. coop
eration in denying any request
which does not meet with his ap
proval, : ...... -
"In" the second group are the
elective state' officials. Proper
requisitions from these officials,
evidencing the need for the ar
ticle or service, funds for which
are available through appropria
tions or fees and for which appro
val has been given by the budget
director and the ways and means
committee ot the legislature us
ually should be approved. These
officials are elected by the peo
ple themselves, who evidently
thought they had business Judg
ment enough to conduct properly
Already Made .
"The remaining group falls un
der two heads. One concerns the
expenditure of funds over which
the legislature alone has Jurisdic
tion and the other those boards
and institutions operating under
the state board of control. With
these, I am willing and eager to
cut to the bone and to cooperate
with the other board members In

Sam Brown belts, while at
tractive for parade service, are
not necessary is the operations of
guards employed at the Oregon
state penitentiary, according to a
decision reached by members of
the state board of control at a
meeting here Monday.
The requisition for; the Sam
Brown belts t was presented by
Henry Meyers, superintendent of
the prison, who declsred that this
equipment would add materially
to the attractiveness of the gusrds
and distinguish them from other
employes ot the institution. :
Governor Meier declared that
he was opposed to the purchase of
the belts for the reason that they
would cost considerable money
and would in no way increase the
efficiency of the guards, j j i j
"These guards j look g o o d
enough to me,' " said Governor
Meier, "and I see no reason for
aporoving this purchase." r ; J !

ing in the negative
Governor Meier also went ou
