Mr. Gates had outlined plans for con solidating 130 state departments and ac tivities into eight or ten and had made the startling statement that no living soul knows today just what the total appropriations of the state of Vermont amount to. He proposed an executive budget, for which he would make the governor di rectly responsible. In response to a question as to how he wonld make the budget effective, Auditor Gates said the people should elect a gov ernor who would give all his time to the administration of state funds. "Just how has Governor Hartness been ing one of two men who made Hartness governor. "I'm not blaming Governor Hartness any more than any other governor," re plied the speaker, "but I ; notice he did not raise his hand when I asked if any one knew what the total appropriations of the state of Vermont were. A governor j ought to have his nose to the grindstone anu Know aoout tnese things. ' This remark caused a visible sensation and brought the governor to his feet. "I. object to a. statement that is not in accordance with the facts," said the executive of the state. "I have been in close touch with business all my life. I think I know 'what is going on in the state. Auditor Gates is a diligent and efficient officer, but he has been led into a statement that is not correct."
