"Can there be a reasonable expec-
tation for further considerable reduc-
tion In governmental expenditures In
the near future? Thla question la
no doubt on tha lips of many. The
burden of taxation cajosed by tha
world war has borne heavily upon us
all and It has been the earnest desire
of the government to reduce -this bur-
den to the minimum consistent with
a proper functioning of tha federal
service. We have seen however that
approximately two-thirds of tha taxes
collected go to pay certain fixed
charges over the expenditure of which
there can be little or no administra-
"After deducting these items there
Is left as has been shown approxt-

these normal operating expenses of
tha government must be paid. It Is

tha retrenchment policy ot tha gov-
. eminent haa been directed.

reorganisation of tha department and

It would not be under an Independent

closely articulated and co-ordinated
mitt the present A. and M. system.
He was sure this would be the plan
followed because the people of Texas
are tired of duplication of effort and
see th economy of simplifying the
educational administration system.
The sympathy of the group ex-
pressed m periodic outbursts of ap-
plause and words of approbation pro

declaration of personal faith and am-
bition for the Institution. He declared
that his one purpose In active life was
to build -In Texas the most efficient
