Arthur H. James will pick a business man instead of an educator when he names Public Instruction Superintendent Lester K. Ade's successor in May. The governor, however, refuses to comment on this subject because-if the rumor has its basis in fact--it might cause a storm of protest among educators and educational organizations in the state. Nevertheless, many well-informed observers reason that James' policy of rigid economy and "down-to earth common-sense" obviously points to selection of a business man --an executive who will be capable of. putting (he Public Education Department on an e.Ticient, businesslike bnsis nnd eliminating many of the so-called "educational frills." The department, which used to occupy a few offices on the mezzanine of the Capitol's South Wing, now takes up a large part o£ the space in the huge, new Education Building. It became apparent that the Department's staff was unnecessarily large when, at Governor James' first cabinet meeting, Dr. Ade said it could be .reduced so that $140,000 would be saved by the end of the biennium, May 31. Ade, an appointee of former Gov. Geo. H. Earle, said at the same cabinet meeting that the Commonwealth could lop 580.000 from state school subsidies before the biennium's end without materially harming the educational setup. Unlike other cabinet officers who take over their departments with an incoming administration, the superintendent of public instruction is appointed for a definite four-year term dating from May 1, in accordance vith a legislative act.
