Monday Evening, December 2, 1957. Government of Indiana Operated in 26 Buildings INDIANAPOLIS (UP)—If you have the idea your Indiana government is compactly situated under the Statehouse dome, forget it. An unofficial count shows t h e ornate pigeon-infested state capitol is only one of at least 26 buildings in Indianapolis alone where state officials conduct the affairs of four million Hoosiers. "We find some once in a while •we didn't even realize were ther," said John Whitehead, dir- e:tor of the Stat Office Building Commission. Figures compiled by Whitehead show Indiana taxpayers shell out $ii!7.883 a year for rent and maintenance for Indianapolis buildings and offices outside the Statehouse. 19,000 Draw Pay The state payroll, at a new high of $4,501,964 in September, goes to nearly 19,000 employes. The number of buildings 'housing state functions would be multiplied many times if the list included the 24 state institutions, four colleges and dozens of armories, division offices and scattered boards located in other cities. For years, the highway and revenue departments have occupied two downtown office buildings. Recently, the Employment Secur- i-.y Division and other offices moved into an abandoned furniture store. Conservation and highway offices occupy what was once a department store. The right-of-way division of the highway department occupies part of a hotel. Smaller oflices are scattered—like the Livestock Sanitary Board which operates from a hosiery mill. Ail-Purpose Building State officials hope they have the answer to all this confusion i.n a 20 million dollar stale office building and a smaller .Employment Security Division building. Both will be built immediately west of the Statehouse on an area that eventually may become a scenic hall. Whitehead figures the modern all-purpose building—perhaps 10 stories high—will absorb every department now occupying temporary quarters, plus many offices in the Statehouse. The exception will be the Employment Security Division in its own new building. Plans even call for future expansion room with usuable floor space or perhaps 600,000 to 650,000 square feet. Just about the only thing left in the Statehouse will be offices of the elected state officials, in- eluding the governor, and the House and Senate chambers. Won'l Move Before 1961 But plans aren't on the drawing I boards yet and Whitehead said ] the 'move into the new building (won't be made until 1!>61—taking jinto account "a lot of its." "Clarence Drayer, director of public works and supply, has been concerned about the waste involved in renting and maintaining dozens of state offices. He recently lost a battle over the purchase of an abandoned tailoring building to consolidate the five Indianapolis buildings now used by the highway department; Scanning a long list of buildings he is responsible for keeping in good condition, Drayer complained about the waste it causes. "Talk about efficienty'. . . this is efficiency personified," he grumbled with a note of sarcasm.

They tried to get as low, but had to lower the roof to do it. (Less headroom, sanoi; high, boxy, cooped-up look.) Their windshields got smaller, while ours got bigger. Most of them still don't have Total : Contact Brakes to assure smooth, even, safe stops when needed. Nor do they offer push-button TorqueFlite, the proven automatic transmission, and Constant-Control power steering that works .full time— not part time as some other systems do. And Dodge no-sway, no<lip Torsion-Aire is standard equipment. (Bus-type air spring! offered by some cars cost well over $100.00 extra.) So compare all the 1958 models with 'Dodge.
