Washington. April V <APi In a
special message to Congress. Presi
dent Hoover called for appointment
~f delegates from both the Senate and
the House to work with him In fram
ing "a complete national program of
economy.”
The President declared further re
duction of Federal expenditures for
the next year to be in absolute neces
sity.
He asserted, however, that various
agencies In Congress working toward
this end lacked the necessary unity of
action.
•Therefore." he continued. “I re
commend to the Congress that in or
der to secur this unity of effort and
prompt action and thus insure the
relief of the tax-payer and a balanced
budget, at the same time protecting
vital service of the government, that
representatives be delegated by the
two houses, who together with rep
resentatives of the executive should
be authorized to frame for action by
the present Congress a complete na
tional program of economy, and to
i r com mend the legislation necessary
to make it possible and effactive.
•Such a course would expedite
rather than delay the passage of ap
propriation bills."

38.147.412 of new bonds were issued.
Governor O. Max Gardner pointed out
today in connection with the report
issued by Charles M. Johnson, di
rector of local government.
"This shows an Important trend in
the decreased amount of debt being
contracted by the State." Governor
Gardner said. "But the most impor
tant thing yet is that since the new
l'*cal government law went into ef
fect. payment totaling 824.025,522 have
been made by counties, cities and
towns, reducing their bonded indebted
ness by that amount. When It is taken
into consideration that this 824,025.522
was paid off In the most difficult fin
ancial year of any of the counties,
cities and towns have ever experi
enced. the accomplishment is even
more significant. For this past year

years ago."
Governor Gardner pointed out that
during the past two years the State
had reduced Its bonded indebtedness
only about $15,000,000, so that these
figures show that the counties are
reducing their bonded lndebtdness
more rapidly than the State.
In discussing the fact that the coun
ties, cities and towns this past year
issued only $810,500 in new bonds. Gov
ernor Gardner pointed out that the
greater part of this total was for two
projects, $250,000 for a new auditorium
in Raielgh, to replace the one de
strowed by fire, and $220,000 for a
new courthouse in Waynesvitie.
"I think these fact a are of tremen
dous interest to the people of the State
and that they should know something
of the savings that have been ef
fected through the operation of the
local government, act and the Local
Government Commission," Governor
Gardner said. “There is no branch of
the State government rendering a
more constructive or worthwhile ser

Washington, April 4, (AP) Assis
tant Attorney General Seth W. Rich
ardson summarizing his report to the
Senate today on law enforcement In
the Hawaiian islands as follows:
General Crime Conditions.
We found in Hawaii no organized
crime, no important criminal class
and no criminal rackets.
We did not find substantial evid
ence that a crime wave, so-called, wax
in existence in Honolulu, either dis
proportionate with the increase in the
population or when viewed In com
parison with crime records In cities
of similar size on the mainland.
We found, however, ample evidence
of extreme laxity in the administra
tion of law enforcement agencies.
We found a condition of inefficiency
in the administration of justice which
in effect, constituted an invitation to
the commission of crime, and which
had largely destroyed the morale of
the law enforcement agencies, with
& resulting loss of public confidence.
We found that such conditions had
given rise to a feeling of personal
unsafety among a substantial portion
of the citizens.
We. therefore, believe that the us
ual conditions of race, society and in
dustry in the territory, make a con
tinuance of such laxity fraught with
much social and political danger.
W« found in the territory no pre
sent serious racial nrejudlces. The
races seemed to be still carrying on
together with exceedingly little fric
tion.
We are quite cognizant of the sug
gestion that If the condition of affairs
