esting and significant effects in New Zealand In this little piece Im going to think back on some them as they revealed them selves to me during my much too brief stay on the islands First of all I should make it clear that there is going to be no retreating from the form of gov ernment now existent there Many would like to turn to the kind of free enterprise we have in Amer that isnt in the cards Welfare State The foundations of New Zea lands welfare state are imbedded in the organic law of the land Step by step government has taken over what is left to private Center prise in i other lands No matter how in e f f e c tual or j blundering the a d m i n i s j tration there is I nobody to whom W EARL HALL t h e expropri ated business can be returned There are two major parties in New Zealand but both of them are within the framework of the existent socialism The differ ence as in Britain is largely one of emphasis Both arc so cialistic according to our Amer ican standards One one now in pow er committed to holding the line against further extensions of government owner ship and control To a remark able degree the approach of Prime Minister S G Hollands government is like Anthony Edens Both are caretakers for programs and instrumentalities created by previous allout so cialists He lives in Wellington hut represents a constituency in Just a Symbol The Crown is

Attempts to increase the states annual bud get of about S136Vj million will find rough sledding in the 1957 Legislature Although requests are being made by state agencies and others outside the state government for boosting various appropriations the chance now is about 2 to 1 against any overall increase This is indicated by the answers members of the Legislatura have given the Associated Press in its biennial survey on various prospective legislative matters Many of the lawmakers said that as of now they are inclined strongly toward a holdtheline approach to increased askings Those favoring an increase said it should be slight Quite a few had not made up their minds Those agreeable to an increase and some others who said they would approve a higher budget If necessary suggested many sources of additional state reven jue However an increase of the present per cent sales tax to 3 per cent was the most frequent ly mentioned A couple others would get extra money through legalizing the sale of liquor by the drink and one suggested pari mutuel horserace betting The legislators answers came in fairly close to the time that the 50 some state agencies asked an increase of more than
