He must coordinate the demands of the Sev eral departments and make these fit to the estimated revenues and to the Revenue possibilities and probabilities. This May mean for a time the suspension of some activities. It must mean either the lopping off of some of these activities or the reduction of the Cost of such activities to meet the Revenue. In making a program to fit into such a situation it is necessary that essential activities of govern ment those designed to protect life and property and Liberty must be maintained. It May he that these May have to be maintained at a reduced Cost As it is essential that government costs be kept to a minimum and that these must follow the general trend of our economic life. In making our first concern must be the maintenance of these essential activities and that Means those activities which Are desirable but not essential will be the first to be subjected to reductions and should sustain the More drastic reductions. Reductions also must be made in the Cost of essential activities but it is necessary that these essential activities be maintained on a scale to insure the preservation of the constitutional guarantees for the Protection of life and go Gertz and faces sentence Omer Gelosi on trial As accessory in slaying of Presti appears in circuit court at May last entire week charged with be ing an accessory to the slaying of Andrew Presti Here july 5, Joseph Gelosi 34, Elmira n.
