Five Subjects Are
Treated
PHOENIX, Feb. 3. When Gov
ernor (Hunt issued his call for the
legislative sessions it was his idea
that the legislators should be given
a free rein. He would not use his
power as an executive to limit them
in their work. Because some par
ticular subject was mentioned in Ins
call by no means was indicative of
a desire on the part of the Gover
nor that a law on the subject should
be enacted. Those measures in
which he was especially interested
Governor Hunt dealt with in his
message to the legislature -which
treats with sixty-five subjects and is
about thirty thousand words in
length.
