aid to the Governor-elect's personal plat

exist to carry out "party pledges."

The Senator went back this afternoon
to Atlantic City, where he will spend a
few days recuperating from his recent
bronchial trouble, and then will go to
Washington. He will not attend the In
auguration of Governor Brumbaugh.
"I hope that Doctor Brumbaugh will ap
point only good Republicans as members
of his cabinet." he Bald. "That is my
only concern in the matter."
Senator Penrose had no Idea of the pos
sible appointees. He Is of opinion Doc
tor Brumbaugh has not yet made up his
mind as to the personnel of his cabinet.
The Republican organization leaders ap
parently are as much In the dark concern
ing Doctor Brumbaugh's cabinet appoint

himself. Doctor Brumbaugh
has used his silence concerning, his ap

out today that at the first sign of lack

Doctor Brumbaugh might show fight,
and would probably leave the Republi

appointments could be held up until the

as recess appointments.
