CITIES DOUBLE DEMANDS The cities of the state have raised their sights on the matter of state grants to cities. The original $10 mil.lion request has been raised to $20 million which leads many to believe that state surpluses are not such grand things after all. When surpluses have been accumulated for a rainy day most politicians can see rain clouds in a fairly clear sky. O THE LIQUOR CONTROVERSY This week legislator will probably settle down to one of the big jobs before them -- the" liberalization of the present liquor control act. This is not likely to be settledon aparty basis. A great many people of the state have been well satisfied with the operation of the present law and many morebelieve that "cocktail bars" are different from the old saloons in name only. Those favoring the change think that drink- ing should be as free to the man on the street as to the members of exclusive clubs. @ MACHINE POLITICS The people of the State of Washington will probably see the greatest political maChine,'ev- er created in the state, in themext Sour years. Governor Men C. Wallgren has served notice that only Democrats can hold office under his administration and the flocking of Democrats to Olympia is an indication that he means just what he says. ' Many Republicans criticized Goveror Ar- thur B. Langlie for keeping some Democrats on the payroll, but Mr. Langlie stated emphatically he was first interested in having the state served efficiently. His interest in seeing that only Re- publcans worked for his administrati ondary.  I In general this state has never had a ruth- less political machine that was statewide, but our surmise is that every attempt will be toward that end under the Wallgren administration. t REPUBLICANS OPPOSE SALOONS Senator Harry Wall of Chelan stated re- cently_that the Republican senators will oppose Governor Men C. Wallgren's prgram to sell whiskey by the drink. The Senator stated that many states have copied Washington's Steele Liquor Act and it is thought to be one of the best of any state in the nation. The Republican senator also stated that if the state .surplus is spent judiciously by the pres- ent legislature the three per cent sales tax can be dropped to a two per cent tax. The group also went on record to establish a medical-dental school at the University of Washington or at Whington State College. They also favored a sound program of employ- ment or rehabilitation for returning service men; the immediate development of the irrigation-rec- lamation program at Grand Coulee and an in- crease in teacher retirement benefits and increas- ed aid for the common schools. The Republican senators were definate that the state surplus is to be used for post war pro- jects and asked for a sound' reforestation pro= gram and a sustained yi61d logging program.

ABOUT THE OLYMPIA SCENE RESEMBLES THREE RING CIRCUS IN SOME WAYS OLYMPIA, Jan, 17 A young reporter assigned to cover a rain "wreck, wired his editor, "All con- fusion here. Impossible to find what happened." Nut that the Olympia scene is like a train wreck or that i$ is ALL confusion. It is more to be cn>mpared with the traditional three ring circus. We have the big top, the'three rings, the ring master and have. just wit- nessed the performers arriving for the big show. Then there is that para]e of recent actors, headed by former governor Arthur B. Langlie who have during the past few days departed for their fu- ture activities in other fields. We also have a few clowns, some of whom really perform important services while the spotlights shine on slack wire performers and oth- er types of acrobats.

Senator Mitchell is young, only 38, talent- ed and with the experience of having served as secretary to Wallgren during his 12 years of senate service, is considered a good appointment. Lnglie Administration Leaves Mark To Shoot At Regardless of party prejudices, there is a record on the part of the Langlie administration, now history, of constructive adminis- tration that will be somthing for the new administration to keep in mind. From a deficit of millions to a credit balance which totals well to,;vard the one hundged mil- lion dollar mark. Economicel and efficient operation Of departments was the rule. This is not to say that the Langlie officals had any monopoly on effciency that can- not be equalled or greatly sur- passed by the Wallgren staff. The citizens have a right to expect a continuation of good government and efficiency. There is every reason to believe that they will get it. There is also sufficient HERE'S DOPE ON SESSION Noted Political writer Gives Views On Legislature By JIMMIE K. BROWNE' OLYMPIA, January 16 -- Af- ter getting off to a flying start the legislature is now settling down to routine busines. Al- though on the surface all appears to be peace and harmony, ther is uneasiness and unrest which is apparent to all experienced legis- lative camp followers. Just when this will break into open eruption is something no one can predict at ths time. The Democrats are in absolute control of both the Senate and th House. Governor Men C. wall- gren has perfected his contacts, named his representatives who will act as liasion Officers between the two houses and the executive offices and has settled down to meet issues as they arive. This gession can become either one of the best the state has ever had, or it can be the worst in the state's history. It rests enirety with the leadership, which at this stage of game is feeling its way but is trampling on too many toes and pet schemes to get very far without flare backs.

"Most of the biggest and most difficult cases have been cleaned up," said B. T. McCauley, Dirtct- or of Game. "Permanent correc- tions have been made and the land owners involved ill have no fur- ther cause for complaint. Th rest of the cases are being correct- ed as rapidly as it is possible to get materials and men to do the work."

The bill appropriated $100,- 000 from the Game Fund for the department to use in fencing or- chards and haystacks to keep deer and elk out, with the landowners doing the work and the' depart- ment-paying for materials. Although priorities on materials and the shortage of manpower have made it difficult to carry out projects, McCauley revealed possible to control the animals by fencing, virtually has been ex- terminated in two special seasons.

However, Wallgren, after 12 years at Washington, D.C:, should and probably does, know just what can be accomplished and Will be found working towards that end. Cabinet Selections In loading up his departments and naming his cabinet, the new governor has hurt plenty of feel- ngs, but generally his selections are being well received. He is get- ting experience wherever possible, and is doing a good job. When Admiral Luther E. Greg- ory annourced he was accepting the chairmanship of the Liquor Control Board, it was formal no- tice that the new governor was going to let the admiral recrgan- ize and run that deparment as it should be operated, and further, that the governor and the admir- al saw eye-to-eye on big issues in- volving liquor sales and control. Then the selection of Harry Huse for license director was an- other well aimed shot. Huse knows the departnent inside out. So it has been all down the line. Even the naming of Hugh Mitchell, his private secretary, to the two years evidence that if they do not there tour of duty in the United States will be another housecleaning fou, ] Senate, was a move well thought to eight years from now.

However every ad- mihisti, ation :is alWa:s on trial. It is the Americah way. After all we can always and periodically do "throw the rascals out" just to demonstrate that we know who pays for the show. Legislature Settling To The Tasks At Hand Bills are being introduced in- to the legslative nill every day now. They are about of the usual grist. Increase in old age pensions which s always with us is already in. School bills have appeared and will continue to show in the record from time to time. In the Senate there is almost an equal division along conserva- tive and "left wing" lines instead of party lins. The House. being a larger body always presents a different picture. The real battles have not yet developed but there will be a lot of action very soon now. For especially good flavor, try basil in tomato soup, sweet ma- joram in potato soup, thyme with onion in black bean soup and in clam chowder. Put the yarb in a cheesecloth bag in the soup and remove 20 minutes before it is done. to do for the state and how and where federal cooperation and aid can be had. Republicans Get No Plums The new governor has already ruffled plenty Of feelings and will undoubtedly ruffle many more. It is reported that it was Wall- gren's idea that the Senate and House of legislature be seated as in Congress, the Democrats being grouped together and the Repub- licans seated on their sidt. This is a new departure in this state, and created something of a riffle when the members discovered what had been done, but no harm was done. Also, it is reported that the governor let it be known that in commite assignments, the minor- ity party did not rate chairman- ships and should be given only proportionate representation on all big committees. Seniority went out of the window. This did not sit ell with many, but the old political philosophy "to the victor belong the spoils" will stand as long as we have political parties in this state.
