Hall Named By Saxon To Budget Post Picked to Head Division for 1 Months Pending Holding of Competitive Examinations Following an opinion by Attorney General Francis A. Pallottl that the office of budget director falls within the merit system, Slate Finance Commissioner O. Glenn Saxon Tuesday named Edward F. Hall of New Britain, his predecessor, to head the budget division for four months pending competitive examinations required as a result of the ruling. Mr. Hall held the $10,000-a-y;vr finance commissionership from 1927 until July 1, when he was succrJd-ed by Dr. Saxon, Governor Baldwin's appointee. His temporary ap pointment to the budget director's post, which carries a yearly salary of $7500, carried the approval of thj Governor. Follcy I Revised. Besides precluding the immediate appointment of Mr. Hall as permanent budget director, Attorney General Pa Haiti's opinion that the position Is in the classified service of state employment led Commissioner Saxon to announce a revision of policy in the operations of the budget division, a branch of the Department of Finance and Control. Since the office was created by the 1937 Legislature, the budget directorship has been regarded as of a policy-making nature. "The budget director's functions in the future." Dr. Saxon said, "will be limited to fact-finding. Questions of policy will be determined bv the Legislature, the Governor and the Finance Combmissioner." The post became vacant Tuesday when tne resignation of Dr. Ben jamin P. Whitaker, first budget en the organization of the Finance Department, under the merit system but had not done so in ihe case of the budict director. Attorney General Pailctti said in his opinion: 'We feel, nevertheless, that in a ,irU of fair p;3y they an0uld be trea'ed alike and no distinction .,hou!d be made between thm. ... ., . v. . . lt the intent of the legislature RQ( 0f tiie 3W that the budget d: rortnr .shnnlrt h untw.ntert within : Examinations To Be Held.

I vnn Convention Of Colored Group Opens Northeastern Federation Hears Addresses by Governor Baldwin and Mayor Spellacy Speaking at the opening session of the convention of the Northeastern Federation of Colored Women's Clubs in the Union Baptist Church Tuesday night, Governor Baldwin and Mayor Spellacy discussed the Negro problem in both its Uieore'iical and practical aspects and w-elcomed convention delegates to the state and city. In a Jovial mood, Governor Baldwin congratulated the Negro women on their record of 43 years of service to their race and their com munities, since tho founding of the association in Boston. Governor Speaks. "Wlven you get women together themselves," the state's Chief Executive observed, "you get things done. I'm a family man, the father of three boys, so I know, and I'm proud to admit that this talk about ths "better half of a family isn't all a Joke." Mori seriously, the Governor declared, "we must have an equal opportunity for every man and every woman. We must all stnvs together toward attaining that end." Mayor Talks. Introduced by Catherine Barlow as one who has d,w more for the local Negro than all his predecessors combined, and who recognizes manhood, integrity and ability regardless of the color of a man's skin," Mayor Spellacy was more parochially concerned with the plight of the Hartford Negro. "We know that we have a racial problem here in Hartford," the Mayor began, "and we know that the onlv way that it can be solved is to discus it openly and lntelli-Rentlv. not to hide it or polish it so that lt ran not be clearly seen." Point To Low Wage. 'Turning to facts on the Negro problem, Mavor Spellacy stated, "We have 6300 Negros in the City of Hartford. Forty per cent of them are on relief. Our recent housing survey shows that the average Negro, when he is working, early onlv $13 a week. At the same time only 3 per cent of our tenements are vacant."
