Founder of Lowden Prize Awrded In
Northern Oratorical
"There has been no progress in the
system of government in the last hun-
dred years, no nor since the Consti-
tution was formed, in fact, there has
been retrogression," said Frank o.
Lowden, candidate for the Republi-
can presidential nomination, when
speaking to a crowded house at the
Majestic theater yesterday afternoon.
Governor Lowden delivered an ad-,
dress on the need of .business man-
agement in government affairs, fol-
lowing an introduction by Regent Ju-
nius Beal, who said that the Illinois
-governor was a man who possssed
all the requirements needful, for Low-
den was rich in experience in execu-
tive and business matters.
Treasury Overburdened'
Governor Lowden lamented the, fact
that while world politics were taught
in schools, there seemed to be too lit-
tle time to teach "business in govern-
ment.". In elaborating on his state-
ment that there had been a retrograd-
ing trend in the governmental busi-
ness Mr. Lowden saidehat the treas-
ury department no longer was the de-
partment of finance that Alexander
Hamilton intended it to be but was
simply a transmitting office for the
estimates of the other departments.
"The treasury department has to su-
pervise the department of public
health, coast guard, public buildings,
and various other similar boards, and
it is impossible for one department to
adequately supprvise all these activ-
ities. The functions of government
are not divided into 10 departments
but rather into hundreds which over..
lap and compete ,with, one another.
Private business. systems have been
revised many times but we either fail
to realize that governmental affairs
need a change or else we are too en-
grossed in private business to attend
to them. We are in danger of na-
tional bankruptcy if there is not a
change soon," he continued.
Too Many Civil Service Men
"Economists state that for every
dollar of tax that is paid by the man-
ufacturer the consumer pays five'"was
the statement made by the governor.
"There are more than 1Q0,00 fivil
service men in Washington at the
present time in contrast to a few less
during the stress of the war an4 to
32,000 before the conflict. Taxes have
risen from one to five and one-half
billions in the last four years and Ibe
lacreased expense of the government
is out of proportion to the revenue-re-
ceived," he said. "I believe the high
cost of government is responsible par-
tially at least for the high cost of liv-
ing. Our government is too apt to ap-
point a commission and then to think
the problem is solved. There is nothing

so hard to get rid of as a public of-
fice; it approaches immortality."
Tells of Suetess in Illinois
After relating his success in Illi-
nois in revising the system of appro-
priations by means of the budget sys-
tem Governor Lowden expressed his
ideas of improvements in the national
government. "Do away with 41 of the
42 agencies that have to do with the
public health, and then the treasury
department would have more time to
deal with estimates, and would cut
down expenses," said Lowden. "There
are too many agencies in each depart-
ment that duplicate and overlap one
ranother and interfere with their prop-
er function,"
Treasury Should Cut Expenses
To make the treasury department's
chief function the cutting down of ex-
penses and to give it the power to in-
vestigate, limit, or if need be to in-
crease the estimates of the various
departments, instead of being just the
