'Mkcwl/r, If we find that there | is Inefficiency, law violations, dls- | honesty of employes aided and en- cournsed by s lax admnlstratloh, i then the major blame should be not on.Ihe director, the Highway Commission, or the 'minor em- ployes, but directly .on the oy- (rnorVshftulders, and the fac.ti should be rn-ailsbiV for the attorney general or nny other political In a campaign U he chooses.
