Let us raise a standard to which the wise a~(t honest c;:tn repair; the event is in the hand (,f God." Our l,egislature must do all jn its power to keep down the expenditures cf govern:nent. With the combined taxes of federal, state and local gov- ernments takinff more than one-fifth of the people's income iaa taxes, it is absolutely essential that efficiency and economy, together with retrench- ment, be the watchworr of the legis- lator. The task before the Legislature is an imposing one, for the people of C:difcrnia, while demanding that the cost of goxernment be reduced, have so tied the hands of the Governor and the Legislature, by constitutional amendment, that the officials control less than one-quarter of the state budget. With this small portion of the state budget with which to work, the Legislature must practice the most rigid economy; it must scruti- nize with the utmost care the budget prepared by the inco:ning administra- tion, as well as the thousands of bills submitted; it must reject all unnec- essary appropriations; it must strive to eliminate all superfluous and over- lagping governmental machinery; and it must introduce business efficiency iHto the governments of counties and cities, as well as into the state gov- t'rnment.. It is the mora! obligation of each legislator to consider himself a trus- tee for the taxpayers and a guardian of the prosperity of the people of California. He nmst apply the meas- uring stick (,f efficiency and economy to every proposal presented to him. ---:o:-- SOUVENIR BOOK SPEAKS WELL OF DR.
