Washington, April 16. The house
of representatives' economy commit
tee under Congressman John McDuf
fie’s chairmanship arrived at one
sensible, conclusion anyway, in the
course of its recent conference with
President Hoover relative to reduc
tion in the cost of government.
An argreement was reached upon
the desirability of getting all expense
cuts together, in what legislators call
an “omnibus bill.” and acting on
them collectively, instead of trying to
deal with each one separately.
No governmental subdivision is
without its own particular group of
friends, some of them very strong
and fanatical. When that subdicision's
appropriation is attacked, the group
especially interested in it invariably
puts u pa fight in its defense, and
as the group has solidarity, generate

resolute opposition, it holds its ground
