    Gov. VanWagoner States His Program

    Independents Wb and LOSO

    HU laattgral Spooch Makes a Goj»d Impression ane! It U Uo*»ttui ir Attempts To Block HU Program

    Will Get Anywhere

    Gov. Murray VanWagoner office last Wednesday and his augeral address seems to have

    took in-

    been well received all over the state.Ev- en the Republican press praised it. The Detroit Free Press knocks those skeptics who wail that his program eellf for increased expenditure*, by classing them as people of faint heart and little faith who think be- cause a thing never has been done it cannot be done. Gov. VanWag- oner expects to get $25,000,000 more revenue this year by increased tales taxes, due to more sales, and » more efficient means of collection.To that end he favors consolidating a number of departments and forming a tax collection dept

    In his inaugeral speech *he gover- nor promised to put the 80,000 peo- ple in Michigan who are entitled to old age pensions but who have been refused them for the past two years, because the governor and legislature were economy minded on the pension rolls. He made the same promise as to aid to crippled children who were also penalized as a economy move. These two promises in the name of mercy and humanity should be carri- ed out and any legislator or bunch of legislators who endeavors to block them should have the light of pub- licit) turned on him or them.

    In regard to school elections the governor would abolish the property owning qualification and let all citi Zens vote upon all matters. 'His rea- son for this is that the schools are no longer supported wholly by the prop- erty tax but the bulk of their rev- enue comes out ofthe sales tax which ali people contribute to. In this matter he has the backing of supt. of public instruction Gene Elliott who has long endorsed /this stand.

    There seems to be one fly in the ointment and that is that the aged tiring governor, Luren Dickinson.He still continues to Attempt to keep in the spotlight. The last legislature did ndt confirm many of his appoint- ments and others he failed to make. K< publican politicians wished him to rail a special session to get the ap- pointments confirmed. As this would put ithe matter squarely up to him he refused but instead passed the buck to the new legislature by sending in a list of 58 names for appointment There is doubt as to the legality of this action. In a similar case the su- preme court has ruled such action by a retiring governor unconstitutional. Gov. VanWagoner likewise sent in }us appointments. Attorney General Roihton who owes his nomination to Dickinson has ruled thai no ap- pointments can take office until eon- firmed by the senate. Heretofore they have taken office when they received their commission. This pat- ronage row is a petty matter and it should be .shelved in favor of more serious matters confronting the leg- islators.

    Gov. VanWagoner's appointment of George Burke of Ann Arbor, for- mer Governor Grosbeck and John Beukoma of Muskegeon to the civil service commission apparently meets with eneral satisfaction.

However their star player was Pulkerson who scor- ed ]S points most of them on long ghOts from the center of the floor. No Pinckney player was able to i'corc more than 4 points.
