SNAPPY MUSIC for Parties, Dance, InstaUations Prices to Suit the Occasion BY OLLIE & RAY CONNETr PYramid 4-4247 OLYMPIA At its recent qunxterly meeting the State Legislative Council, the group of 21 key legislators who study need for legislation between sessions, /iuthorized its subcommit- tee on institutions to 'old any num- ber of adclRional hearings needed to survey business administration procedures in all stare institutions. The Council ,also gave its subcom- mittee ,power of subpoena to as- sure a full survey of facts. The move was sparked by recent developments at Weste, n State Hos- pital where the business manager was discharged and a charge of grand larceny filed against him, on the allegation that he sold some 500 pairs of surplus shoes which had been requisitioned for the use of patients from the federal gov- ernment. The manager, Phil Lelli, a political appointee, has pleaded not guilty. Rep. 'John L. O'Brien, (D) of Se- attle, Legislative Council chairman, pointed out that controls have been extremely loose in state in- stitutions for many years. "State institutions are big busi- ness," said O'Brien. "Millions re involved. Loose controls and poor business practices must be cor- rected. The interests of the tax- payers must be protected." Constant Auditing An interesting facet of the Coun- cil's plans for corrective measures in institution controls and business practices is the fact that the Coun- t NOW OPEN Douglass ROUND-UP . oil will negotiate with the state auditor to maintain a continuing audit in institutions, with an im- mediate report on any undesirable practices. Heretofore ,a post-audit was made t the end of a year's operation, and sometimes it wus more than a year after transac- tions were completed. What this would do in practical effect would be to restore to the auditor the pre-audit function which was taken away from him by the new budget and accounting act sponsored by Governor Rosellini, the constitu- tionality of which the auditor ques- tioned in the courts. The Supreme Court last .month ruled in favor of the governor, but has an applica- tion for a rehearing ,before it ,as this is written. 40-Mill Property Tax Limit There is evidently thinking among some legislators that sooner or later an attempt will have to be made to elimirmte the 40-mill limit on property taxes. It came out in a conference last week be- tween xepresentatives of the Asso- ciation of Washington cities and the revenue and taxation commit- tee of the Legislative Council. Rep. A. L. (Slim) Rasmussen k)f Tacoma asked city representatives whether they thought the time has come to break the 40-mill tax limit. The city representatives declined to take an immediate stand on the touchy subject. "Probably we sh'all have to do it for the schcois anyhow," said Pep. Rasmussen. Cities were before the revenue and taxation subcommittee seeking state .financial support to maintain their Services. Their specific re- quest was for an allocation of state tax collections anmuphing to $15 per capita for city population.

Despite this city view, John Current, of the Washington State Research Council expressed he view that the ioug term solution of the financial trottbles of towns and cities lies in the property tax field. Air Pollution When a proposed bill to .set up a state air pollution control corn- mission and to fix standards for control of air pollutian came before. the Legislative Council last week there was an evident reaction on the part of the legislators against taking any hasty action. Rep. John L. O'Brien (D), chairman of the Council, said he thought no action should be taken without a conre- hensive hearing of all aspects. He remarked that 'a number of larger industries already have spent mil- lions of dollars to control their air pollution problems. how the Legislature's subcommit- tee on public assistance should go about an inquiry into the effect of putting a lien clause into operation by Which sums spent in public as- sistance would be recovered from the estates of beneficiaries. Rep. ernard J. Gallagher (D) of Spo- kane, chairman of the subcommit. tee, says he is presently finding out what the effects are of a lien clause in effect in other states. He wants all available facts before holding any public hearings, which are contemplated between now and the time the 1961 legislature con- venes. other states do and what is done by the State of Washington. He thinks a survey of opinion of a cross section of Washington State cases is the proper approach. He says the philosophy of public as- sistance differs widely, for in- stance, between Washington and Oregon. He says that Washington historically has taken the view- point that it wants ample and ade- quate care of its elder and needy citizens. The question of instituting a lien clause and relative responsibility will be one of the hot questions 'before the 1962 legislative "sessions.  "I think  definitely 'we should J[ MONEY FOR NEW BABIES [ have a Imblic hearing or hear- i ings," said Pep. O'Brien.
