The administration costs for correcting the mistakes could run as high as ten million dollars if the contractors get eight mil- lions more. Welfare Picture Worsens Washington's public assistance picture is undergoing a radical change, but the trend appears to be for the worse rather than the better. While state officials have been acclaiming a reduction in old age assistance costs during the last few years, the expense of provid- ing for dependent children has ,been creeping steadily upward. Now a recent tabulation shows that chil- dren will be the state's major wel- fare problem--and expense--within the next eight years if the trend continues. Dollarwise, here is the picture of what has been happening dur/ng the last four years: Four years ago the old age as- sistance program cost $4337,849 during a single month, while the program cost totaled $1,903,- 440 for the same month. Now four years later, old age assistance costs have declined by $250,942, while the ADC expense has increased by $795,- 836. As to numbers of persons, 8397 persons have been dropped from the old age roils in the same four year period, while 9,711 were added to the ADC roster. At pres- ent about 50,000 persons receive benefits in each category. The federal government's expan- sion of social security has absorbed many oldsters who formerly de- pended on state aid to sustain them. No definite reason is given official- ly for the increase in the ADC caseload. However, there is a mod- ern day trend toward larger fam- ilies, and it would seem that it is accompanied by deterioration of family responsibility and a larger number of errant fathers. PUD Arbitrary Powers There is a growing protest in Thurston County against arbitrary powers of the county PUD com- mission. It was sparked by pro- spent a week at Garland Hot Springs. Mr. and Mrs. Sam Wold Jr. vis- Red with Mrs. Wold's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Roy Pulliam Saturday afternoon. Monday Mr. and Mrs. Godwin came to visit Mr. and Mrs. How- ard Denny.

Now being circulated is a peti- tion to the state legislature to give voters the right to ballot on pro- posed major issues which affect their tax bills. The committee seek- ing the right to vote is headed by Tom Allen, business man and city finance commissioner. Allen says he already has more than 10,000 signers. Intent is to submit the pe- tition to the State,. Legislative Coun- cil and ask the Council to recom- mend action to the legislature. The action sought could affect all coun- ties in the state with PUD com- missions. Cities Can Have Slice The Association of Washington Cities has announced that it will ask the 1961 legislature to give hard-pressed municipal govern- ments a ive per cent share of the state sales tax revenues. The asso- ciation "said that serious consider- ation is being given to drawing up an initiative to the legislature re- questing the five per cent slice of the sales tax. Cities asked the 1959 session of the legislature for an allocation of 25 million dollars a year from any available funds. Another Sullivan Files The name Sullivan has been po- litical magic since 1932 in electing William A. Sullivan repeatedly to the office of state insurance com- missioner. Now Billy Sullivan has announced that he will retire and will not be a candidate for reelec- tion next Nov. 8. But the name Sullivan will be on the primary election ballot. John C. Sullivan, Tacoma boilermaker, has filed for the Democratic nomination for in- surance commissioner. John C. Sul- livan formerly was in the insur. ance and real estate bpsiness in Tacoma. His opponent for the Dem- ocratic nomination for the job is Lee I. Kuecklehan, chief deputy in- surance commissioner who has Wil- liam A. Sullivan's backing. Opposes Governor And in the developments of last week, Governor 'Rosellini found himself with opposition for the Democratic nomination. John Pat- rie, 58, of Snohomish who lists his occupation as "being a general nui- sance to professional politicians," filed for governor on the Demo- cratic ticket. "I don't: want to be a public of- ficial," said Patrie. "I just want to stand on the sidelines and tell them what I think of them." Patric said he filed on the prem- ise that "nobody has a right to criticize pgbUc officials as bitterly and cynically as I criticize them, if he is not willing to file for pub- lic office." Patric recently served 30 days in the 8nohomish County jail for dis- turbing the peace. A written sheet he handed reporters was stamped at the top: "Patric for governor, temporary GLASS i' S')L'A Dog Show Set For Fair Run Special feature at the 1960 Ever- green State Fair, according to as- sistant manager Russell Logue, will be a demonstration of exer- cises by highly trained dogs.
