St. Paul As the end of the session approaches none of the big appropriation Bills is yet in shape for action of the committees in charge. While they have passed on numerous items others Are waiting determination. Most of the 21 members of Tho sen ate finance committee and House appropriation committee have been faithful in attending committee meet Ings and almost daily for months they have Given extended hearings to those interested in the various appropriation estimates. Requests for appropriations for Tho next two years aggregate More than $43,000,000 compared with a Little More than $30,000,000 appropriated for a like period two years ago. Tho fact is the docket of requests this year has been far heavier than Ever before. More Timo has been required to consider them. Several matters have had to be left open pending a decision As to Bills pending. For instance the new state Industrial commission could not to provided for until the Bill had been passed and signed the new commission appointed and its budget prepared. Tho educational Bill has Hung fire on account of the debate Over revision of state school Aid. The committees have shown a determination already to pare requests to the Bone. The chairmen of the two committees have announced a purpose to bring appropriations within about the same limit As two years ago. Thie Means cutting out some $10,000,000 from the requests.

The question of state school Aid still is pending in a Bill to revise the schedule of payments to High schools. Increases totalling $766,805 have been asked in this budget and regardless of the final result on Tho state Aid Bill they Are Likely to be denied is the general opinion. The state Aid Bill is a special order this week. Working at High pressure the Best the two committees can do will be to get the big appropriation Bills in Early for the last full week of the session and final passage of the Bills is not pass police measure. By a vote of 41 to 22 the state sen ate passed a Bill creating the office of state safety commission r to co ordinate police activities of i state under one head.
