emphasized the need of such a

Governor, Auditor Generul and
State Treasurer should constitute a
board to tlx saluries and provided

might be .deemed necessary because
of unusual conditions which might
arise. Governor Brumbaugh in his
veto held that the Legislature could
always provide any reasonable re

changes and that such an act would

filed after the Legislature adjourned.
