Mo- Coimnghy were fulfilled to the utmost. Whatever else were their expectations, they were not disappointed it' they had Jioped for n sober outline of what, miv; In.' autiei])iited in the next two yours in the \vny of executive watch over (ho stale's pocket hook. Although postponing until liis budget message next month the details of how he hopes to do it, (!ov- enior McComuigliy cleaved to the traditional ideals of a sound Xutrneg State when he warned that "The budget during my adminislration must he halanced, and to biilaiH'c it we must exercise sound economics,' 1 .Backed hy overwhelming' majorities in .Senate and Uotise, and supported hy a complete set of (.!OP officeholders, Ciov- ernor McOonuughy will have carte lilanche in the setting up of whatever program he dooms necessary to balancing the budget and the exercise-of sound economics Soberly, and with deep appreciation of what it will mean to the State's taxpayers. Governor .McConaugliy asserted that the cost of conducting 1 the current program of State government for the next bienuium will be at least 100 million dollars, while under existing- standards anticipated rc.vemic is only 87 millions. And his proposals, including 1 veterans' bonus and increased aid for oYlu- eatiou will carry the budget, beyond the .100 million mark. The (jovornor's pledge of sound economics was bulwarked by his assertion: "During the life of this (leneral Assembly bills will be introduced to provide many new projects. The proposals may lie good j th<.-y may be excellent. But the acid test of all should be whether or not svc can afford them/' A hint of what is to come was given, when, after- stressing- that the costs of g-overnment, like the costs of living-, have risen tremendously in all slates, (lovor- uor Mct.'onaughy told the (.{cncral Assembly that the only states that are free «\' financial problems "are the states that have widened the base of their tax struct ure." Mis message contained only ono suggestion for new revenue—an increase of one cent in the gasoline tax, hut it loft no doubt that others would be forthcoming. And the Governor left all who heard or read his talk impressed that above all other considerations, and surmounting all other proposals, he consider the financial problem of the next biennium most important. It whets the appetite Cor a peek at his coming 1 budget, message. • For (lit. 1 improvements lie proposes in agriculture, education, health, highways, humane, institutions, recreation and social aids, together with the cost of a. veterans' bonus and rental assistance program—all in lino with his plan for "an even finer, more beautiful Connecticut", —represent added; costs, added taxes. The State may woll acclaim their new Governor's aims. His attitude toward state employes and toward labor in. general is liberal, ills interest, in improving the lot of teachers, and in advancing- the educational standards comes naturally to a man who .has devoted many years of his life to that, particular field. Ht> knows its problems as one who has ex- Y>eriem:ed them personally, Tn general, the Governor's, prog-ram ns outlined to 'the General Assembly is deserving of support without consideration of political leanings. But ns we said earlier, it makes his budget message nil the more important. In fact, his emphasis on the financial aspects of Connecticut government in .1947-48 almost prompts us to withhold, judgment of the entire matter pending a report on what measures he will propose for raising added revenues to keep (he budget hal- iinoet 1 -.

And mott 1 senators and representatives, having been in the habit of telllnr Ott' executive departments what to do and how to do it for year*, don't want just any job. It has to be good. ' ' • So. almost every day, the president's calling Itst shawm a f« w | visitors who won't have "Rep." or "Sen." Jn front' of their names much longer and who would Ilk* to have something else to put there. That doesn't mean, of course, that all th»' Democrats who were not returned to office ai»'- looking for jobs. Many aay they are not and' mean it. But for men who spent their live* in politics, more politics, or at least government, U the logical thing. Occupying the top spot on the list, accordlnr' to most observers, is Senator James M. Mead of Nexv York, who put his head on the New York gubernatorial chopping block for Tom Dewey and so is considered to have- made the biggect fieri*. . Senator Mead lice lor the purly. Meaci 13 an old friend of tin/president, and Wie story goes that Mr. Truman 1 would like to give him Robert Hanncgan's jobs—postmaster-gentM! and chairman of the Democratic National committee. But, while he would like to get rid of the committat post, because of ill health, among other things, wants to »Uy in the cabinet. And Mead is said to be almost insistent on cabinet rank. What may happen m the assignment of Mead as underiecre. tary of labor (Keen Johnson, who has the job. is anxiou» to n back rj being vice president of Reynolds Metals). Then, concel". • ably, Lewis Schwellenbach, who hasn't been happy as secretary ' would step out and Mead would step up. The only flaw In thU pic-' lure is that Mr. Truman might have to find Schwellenbach another job before he stepped out. Schwellenbach, like Secretary of War- Robert P Patterson, has his eye on a judgeship. preferably on lh» supreme court. Mr. Truman, it is plain. i« confronted with a vlciom* circle. • Tht-rc is u cham.'s that Mead .will get an ambassadorship, U L')II_- can hv luunu lor which exlreiuu wealth is not essential.'
