Published by the State 

1947 



Printed Under Authority of

PREFACE 



With this edition of the Connecticut State Eegister and 
Manual we return to the pre-war custom of annual editions 
in accordance with the Statutes. All of the essential fea- 
tures of the Manual remain the same. 

Because of many calls received in this office for informa- 
tion as to how a bill becomes a law, we requested the 
Honorable Chauncey E. Hutchings, Representative from 
the Town of Harwinton, who has been one of the leading 
figures in the Lower House since he first served in 1921, 
to write an article setting forth this procedure. Such an 
article has been included and we hope it will prove of 
value to the students of government. 

This Manual has such a wide circulation among the 
schools of Connecticut that it seemed desirable to include 
a discussion of Connecticut's representative form of gov- 
ernment which has formed a pattern for our federal gov- 
ernment. Accordingly, we requested Mr. John K. Borland, 
Jr., a legislative reporter for The Hartford Times and a 
keen student of government, to write such an article. We 
hope this, too, will prove helpful and instructive. 

Whatever is good in this Register and Manual must be 
attributed directly to those who have contributed, and to 
the loyal and efficient work of the staff in the Secretary's 
office. This work has been conducted under the super- 
vision of Mr. Leonard C. Sheflott, Supervisor of Publica- 
tions. 

Feances Burke Redick, 

Secretary of the State.

DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 

In Congress, July 4, 1776 



THE UNANIMOUS DECLARATION 

of the 

THIRTEEN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA 

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for 
one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected 
them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, 
the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of 
nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of 
mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel 
them to the separation. 

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created 
equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain 
unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the 
pursuit of happiness. — That to secure these rights, governments 
are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the 
consent of the governed, that whenever any form of government 
becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to 
alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying 
its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in 
such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety 
and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate, that governments 
long established, should not be changed for light and transient 
causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind 
are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right 
themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. 
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invari- 
ably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under abso- 
lute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such 
government, and to provide new guards for their future security. 
Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such 
is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former 
systems of government. The history of the present King of Great- 
Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all 
having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny 
over these States. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid 
world. 

He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and 
necessary for the public good. 

He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and 
pressing importance, unless suspended in their operations till his 

(5) 



DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 

assent should be obtained ; and when so suspended, he has utterly 
neglected to attend to them. 

He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of 
large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the 
right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to 
them, and formidable to tyrants only. 

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, 
uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public 
records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance 
with his measures. 

He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing 
with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people. 

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause 
others to be elected ; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of 
annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their 
exercise ; the State remaining, in the meantime, exposed to all 
the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within. 

He has endeavored to prevent the population of these States; 
for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of 
foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations 
hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands. 

He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing 
his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers. 

He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure 
of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries. 

He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hithei % swarms 
of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. 

He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, with- 
out the consent of our legislatures. 

He has affected to render the military independent of and 
superior to the civil power. 

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction 
foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; 
giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation: 

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us: 

For protecting them, by a mock trial, from punishment for any 
murders which thev should commit on the inhabitants of these 
States: 

For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world: 

For imposing taxes on us without our consent: 

For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury: 

For transporting us beyond seas to be tried for pretended 
offences : 

For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring 
province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and en- 



DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 7 

larging its boundaries, so as to render it at once an example and 
fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these 
Colonies: 

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable 
laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments: 

For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves 
invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever. 

He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his 
protection, and waging war against us. 

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, 
and destroyed the lives of our people. 

He is, at this time, transporting large armies of foreign 
mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and 
tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy, 
scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally un- 
worthy the head of a civilized nation. 

He has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken captive on the 
high seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the execu- 
tioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their 
hands. 

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has en- 
deavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless 
Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistin- 
guished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions. 

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress 
in the most humble terms: our repeated petitions have been 
answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is 
thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to 
be the ruler of a free people. 

Nor have we been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. 
We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their 
legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We 
have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and 
settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and 
magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our 
common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would 
inevitably interrupt our connexions and correspondence. They too 
have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We 
must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our 
separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies 
in war, in peace friends. 

We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of 
America, in General Congress assembled, appealing to the 
Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, 
do, in the name, and by authority of the good people of these 



8 DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE 

Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, that these United Colonies 
are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States; that 
they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and 
that all political connexion between them and the State of Great- 
Britain, is, and ought to be, totally dissolved; and that as free 
and independent States, they have full power to levy war, conclude 
peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other 
acts and things which independent States may of right do. And for 
the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protec- 
tion of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our 
lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honour.

THE FIRST CONSTITUTION 
OF CONNECTICUT 

The "Fundamental Orders," 1638-9. 

"Toted" January Uf, 1638, the Fundamental Orders were the 
beginning of Connecticut as a commonwealth. Their spirit was 
that of a sermon preached by the Rev. Thomas Hooker a short time 
before their adoption, in the course of which he laid down the 
proposition "The foundation of authority is laid in the free consent 
of the people", and which he closed with the challenge: "As God 
has given us liberty let us take it." They recognized no allegiance 
on the part of the colonists to England but in effect set up an 
independent government. In the sense that they were intended to 
be a framework of government more permanent than the usual 
orders adopted by the General Court, they were in essence a 
constitution. The historian John Fiske was justified in his state- 
ment that this instrument was "the first written constitution 
known to history that created a government and it marked the 
beginning of American democracy." While in 1662 the Funda- 
mental Orders were in a sense superseded by the charter, that 
document, drawn up in the colony and taken to England by its 
representative, was never regarded by the colonists as the source 
of their government, but as a protection for and guaranty of the 
government they had already set up for themselves. So it was 
that for forty years after the independence of this nation, Connect- 
icut could still carry on its government under the charter. And so 
it is that this commonwealth has preserved a continuity of develop- 
ment beyond that of almost any other state or nation in the world.

Forasmuch as it hath pleased the Almighty God by the wise 
disposition of his divine providence so to order and dispose of 
things that we the Inhabitants and Residents of Windsor, Hart- 
ford, and Wethersfield are now cohabiting and dwelling in and

word of God requires that to maintain the peace and union of such 
a people there should be an orderly and decent Government estab-

that are admitted freemen and have taken the Oath of Fidelity, 
and do cohabit within this Jurisdiction (*Having been admitted 
Inhabitants by the major part of the Town wherein they live) or 
the major part of such as shall be then present. 

2. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that the Election of 
the aforesaid Magistrates shall be on this manner: every person 
present and qualified for choice shall bring in (to the persons

them distinctly, and every one that would have the person nomi- 
nated to be chosen shall bring in one single paper written upon, 
and he that would not have him chosen shall bring in a blank ; and 
every one that hath more written papers than blanks shall be a 
Magistrate for that year; which papers shall be received and told 
by one or more that shall be then chosen by the court and sworn 
to be faithful therein; but in case there should not be six chosen 
as aforesaid, besides the Governor, out of those which are nomi-

be a Magistrate or Magistrates for the ensuing year, to make up 
the aforesaid number. 

3. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that the Secretary 
shall not nominate any person, nor shall any person be chosen 
newly into the Magistracy which was not propounded in some 
General Court before, to be nominated the next Election ; and 
to that end it shall be lawful for each of the Towns aforesaid by 
their deputies to nominate any two whom they conceive fit to be 
put to election; and the Court may add so many more as they 
judge requisite.

later date. It was adopted by the General Court of November, 1643.

6. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that the Governor 
shall, either by himself or by the Secretary, send out summons to 
the Constables of every Town for the calling of these two standing 
Courts one month at least before their several times: And also

sufficient grounds for it to the deputies when they meet, or else

standing Courts or either of them, as also at other times when the 
occasions of the Commonwealth require, the Freemen thereof, or 
the major part of them, shall petition to them so to do; if then 
it be either denied or neglected, the said Freemen, or the major 
part of them, shall have power to give order to the Constables of 
the several Towns to do the same, and so may meet together, and 
choose to themselves a Moderator, and may proceed to do any 
act of power which any other General Courts may. 

7. It is Ordered, sentenced, and decreed, that after there are 
warrants given out for any of the said General Courts, the Consta-

together to elect and choose certain deputies to be at the General 
Court then following to agitate the affairs of the Commonwealth; 
which said deputies shall be chosen by all that are admitted 
Inhabitants in the several Towns and have taken the oath of 
fidelity; provided that none be chosen a Deputy for any General 
Court which is not a Freeman of this Commonwealth.

in the said Towns being to be attended therein; which deputies 
shall have the power of the whole Town to give their votes and 
allowance to all such laws and orders as may be for the public 
good, and unto which the said Towns are to be bound.

they may seclude such for present from their meeting, and return 
the same and their reasons to the Court; and if it prove true, the 
Court may fine the party or parties so intruding, and the Town, if 
they see cause, and give out a warrant to go to a new election in 
a legal way, either in part or in whole. Also the said deputies 
shall have power to fine any that shall be disorderly at their meet- 
ings, or for not coming in due time or place according to appoint-

refused to be paid, and the Treasurer to take notice of it, and to 
escheat or levy the same as he does other fines.

Court, except such as through neglect of the Governor and the 
greatest part of Magistrates the Freemen themselves do call, shall 
consist of the Governor, or some one chosen to moderate the Court, 
and four other Magistrates at least, with the major part of the 
deputies of the several Towns legally chosen ; and in case the Free- 
men, or major part of them, through neglect or refusal of the

General Courts shall consist the supreme power of the Common- 
wealth, and they only shall have power to make laws or repeal

THE CONSTITUTION OF 
CONNECTICUT- 

As amended and in force July 1, 1947 

Though the people of the state had long acquiesced under the form of 
government derived from the charter, and sanctioned by the legislature ; 
yet it was considered by many that we had no constitution, as our gov- 
ernment under the charter had never received the explicit approbation 
of the people subsequent to the declaration of independence. It was also 
considered to be inconsistent with the dignity of a free nation to hold 
their rights, even nominally by the tenure of a Royal Grant and that it 
was proper the powers of the government should be divided into separate 
departments, and individual rights be secured by a constitution that 
should control the legislature itself. It was therefore thought advisable 
to call a convention for that object. Accordingly, in 1818, a convention 
was assembled which agreed upon a constitution. It was submitted to the 
people, and approved by a vote of thirteen thousand nine hundred and 
eighteen in its favor and twelve thousand three hundred and sixty-four 
against its ratification. On the twelfth of October, 1818, Governor Wolcott 
issued his proclamation, at the request of the General Assembly, declar- 
ing that the constitution was thenceforth to be observed by all persons, 
as the Supreme Law of this state. 

On October 1, 1901 a vote was taken as to the calling of a constitu- 
tional convention for the purpose of revising the constitution. The vote 
was 47,317 in favor and 26,745 against. A convention was held, a 
revised constitution proposed and a vote taken June 16, 1902 as to its 
adoption with the result of 10,377 for the acceptance of such revision 
and 21,234 ag ainst it.

PREAMBLE

worship, without discrimination, shall forever be free to all per-

Sec. 9. In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall have a 
right to be heard by himself and by counsel ; to demand the nature

against him ; to have compulsory process to obtain witnesses in 
his favour; and in all prosecutions by indictment or information,

pelled to give evidence against himself, nor be deprived of life, 
liberty or property, but by due course of law. And no person shall 
be holden to answer for any crime, the punishment of which may

without sale, denial or delay. 

Sec. 13. Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive 
fines imposed. 

Sec. 14. All prisoners shall, before conviction, be bailable by 
sufficient sureties, except for capital offences, where the proof is 
evident, or the presumption great; and the privileges of the writ 
of Habeas Corpus shall not be suspended, unless, when in case 
of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it; nor in 
any case, but by legislature. 

Sec. 15. No person shall be attainted of treason or felony, by 
the legislature. 

Sec. 16. The citizens have a right, in a peaceable manner, to 
assemble for their common good, and to apply to those invested 
with the powers of government, for redress of grievances, or other 
proper purposes, by petition, address or remonstrance. 

Sec. 17. Every citizen has a right to bear arms in defence of 
himself and the state.

GOVERNOR'S MESSAGE 

Mr. President, Mr. Speaker, and Members of the 
General Assembly: 

By meeting today in traditional fashion, the General Assem- 
bly "and the Governor of the State of Connecticut are faithful to 
a constitutional mandate and to a pattern of history. 

Three times in the 310 years since the State was settled, the 
General Assembly has convened after the close of a devastating 
war to face problems of peace. After the Revolution, it was Gover- 
nor Jonathan Trumbull and the Special Session of 1784; after the 
Civil War, it was Governor Joseph R. Hawley and the General 
Assembly of May, 1866; after World War I, it was Governor 
Marcus H. Holcomb and the General Assembly of 1919. 

These General Assemblies and Governors found themselves in 
postwar periods that have a counterpart in the situation that con- 
fronts us today. Time, of course, has altered the setting, but the 
fundamental factors are very similar. By the grace of God and 
the exercise of common sense and vision, the earlier problems 
were solved. By the continued grace of God, we also will exercise 
common sense and vision in solving ours. 

In the recognition of this fact, there is inspiration for us. Our 
predecessors possessed no supernatural powers or talents, yet they 
built well. They laid the foundation for the Connecticut we have 
today. They built the Connecticut way of life. As they built, they 
erected guide posts to mark the path to sound government, to wise 
fiscal practices, to consistent progress. These guide posts can serve 
us today. Therein we are fortunate. We have precedent and his- 
tory to point the way, tradition to inspire us, and loyalty to our 
Connecticut to stimulate us. 

The problems and perplexities that were the lot of the Gover- 
nors and General Assemblies of 1784, 1866 and 1919 were as try- 
ing, as difficult and as momentous to them as the responsibilities 
you and I have assumed. The obstacles seemed just as great, the 
decisions just as hard, the consequences just as significant as the 
ones before us. The earlier leaders were in office when Connecticut 
was struggling back to a normalcy that had been destroyed by 
costly wars. They were striving to establish a full measure of the 
freedom and security that are the fruits of peace. They were seek- 
ing a financial balance that would pay the cost of reasonable gov- 
ernment out of adequate income, that would encourage growth 
and development, that would promote economic prosperity and 
human happiness, yet would not add unwisely to the tax load that 
rested on the shoulders of the people. A return to the normalcy 
that existed prior to any war has never been attained. The inevi- 
table changes wrought by war make that impossible. In like man- 
ner, we cannot turn the clock back to 1941. But we can return to 

(97) 



98 governor's message 

a normalcy that embodies the sound doctrines of the Connecticut 
way of life. 

What our predecessors accomplished is part of our inheritance. 
Their success was not the result of compromise with expediency. 
It was not the consequence of temporizing. It was not a make- 
shift of political partisanship. It was solid construction that 
lasted because it was wise and prudent, because it was based on 
the best interests of the State, because its objective was the wel- 
fare of the people. They built for us. We must build just as 
wisely and solidly for those who are to follow us. That is our 
opportunity. That is our duty. 

In assuming our various offices, we all have pre-conceived knowl- 
edge of some of the State's problems. This knowledge may be per- 
sonal, political or local. Whatever its source, it is capable of dis- 
tracting our attention from fundamental principles we must 
always keep before us. It can lose much of its value unless it is 
viewed in proper perspective, unless it is fitted into its appropri- 
ate place in the administration of the State's affairs. It must be 
balanced with inescapable basic considerations. It must check 
with these elementary factors: What services do the people want 
the State government to perform? Are any of the present services 
superfluous? Are any extravagant? What new services can be 
wisely demanded from the State? Can we afford them? 

It is obviously fitting that I devote early attention in this In- 
augural Message to the general problem of State finances, espe- 
cially in a year when they are highlighted by postwar conditions 
into a position of precedence. It is not my intention to discuss 
now the details of State finances. That will be the subject of my 
Budget Message next month. It is my desire today to face with 
you the fundamental financial question. 

The basic facts are easy to comprehend. Since 1941, the State 
government has been through hard years, difficult years, but years 
also that were economically lush years. They produced many 
trials and tribulations of a wartime nature, but they also pro- 
duced unprecedented revenue for the State. Money was abundant, 
and the State treasury fared exceptionally well. 

This wartime prosperity was administered wisely. It was not 
dissipated or wasted. Every surplus dollar went into a Postwar 
Purposes Fund that ultimately reached the sum of 16 million dol- 
lars. As the fund grew, the exigencies of war imposed upon the 
State new and costly obligations, such as higher salaries for State 
employees, extra services for the people of the State, and greatly 
increased costs for labor, materials, supplies and equipment. They 
were wartime expenses, but they also are continuing expenses that 
now must be met year after year by the State. Under any normal 
conditions, these expenses would have exceeded the ability of the 
State to pay. During the last biennium, additional taxation was 
not necessary because of high tax income from war stimulated 
business. Thanks to the farsightedness of Governor Baldwin and 
the last General Assembly, the Postwar Fund provided the money 



governor's message 99 

to meet additional demands. In doing so, however, the Fund was 
practically depleted. 

Today, the picture is different. War has ended; peace is here. 
With peace have come problems just as acute as our problems in 
the early days of the war. The lush prosperity of wartime has 
gone. State income has been lowered proportionately. State reve- 
nue is below the high peaks of recent years. There is the unalter- 
able fact that the costs of government, like the costs of living, 
have risen tremendously. 

That, in a nutshell, is our fiscal situation. On one hand, we 
have a diminished treasury and prospects of lowered revenues. On 
the other, we have constantly mounting costs of operation. And 
added to the latter will be the costs of whatever this General 
Assembly votes in the way of expansion and improvement in 
State services. 

The problem is not exclusively Connecticut's. It is true of every 
state that has not provided for new and substantial sources of tax 
income. The only states that are free of the problem are the 
states that have widened the base of their tax structure. 

Our fiscal needs are neither distressing nor discouraging, but 
they demand common sense. They require vision, Above all, they 
need sound economics. If there were such a thing as a keynote to 
this Inaugural Message, I unhesitatingly would use the term 
'"sound economics." Economy is a desirable factor, but more than 
economy we need wise, sound economics to conduct our fiscal af- 
fairs today. It is obvious that present State revenue will pay 
neither present State costs nor additional costs that you may 
legislate. To carry on our existent State government and to pro- 
vide any new services, the State must have more income. 

AGRICULTURE 

The renown of Connecticut as an industrial State at times over- 
shadows the importance of agriculture to our economic life. Agri- 
culture is vital to Connecticut, and Connecticut must safeguard 
the interests of agriculture. Particularly, we must be aware of 
the man-power problem of our farms. For years, youth has been 
attracted away from farms until the farm population now is 
largely in the middle and upper age brackets. You should consider 
this problem and the promotion of a program that will attract 
youth back to agriculture. 

Our State is almost unique in having four different departments 
that serve the interests of farming. There is a Department of 
Agriculture, a Department of Domestic Animals, a Department 
of Dairy and Foods and a State Board of Milk Regulation. Fre- 
quently in the past, it has been recommended that the four be 
combined and coordinated in the interests of greater efficiency 
and lessened expense. I recommend consideration of this proposal 
and consultation with those now served by the four departments.

AVIATION 



Aviation is a matter of crucial importance to Connecticut. The 
State owns two airports, one at Bradley Field and the other at 
Groton. Bradley Field, now under Federal control will, we hope, 
be returned to us shortly. Its potentialities are obvious. During 
this session, you will be asked to consider methods of financing 
the operation and development of these fields. You may decide 
that a self-liquidating bond issue is desirable. You also may wish 
to study ways and means of strengthening and making more ef- 
fective the Aviation Commission that was created by the Special 
Session of the last General Assembly. 



EDUCATION 

One of the major problems you face is increased State aid to 
education. Schools have been, by Connecticut tradition, the finan- 
cial responsibility of the towns. State aid has come slowly and 
less generously than in many states. 

I hope you will agree with me that the State must do more, 
much more, than formerly. If we can obtain the income, I believe 
we must help the towns to pay better teachers' salaries, have bet- 
ter teaching, better buildings. Such increased State aid should be 
given only if we thereby provide better education for our youth. 
I strongly favor consolidated grade schools in our smaller towns. 
State aid must be predicated on wholehearted local assumption 
of responsibility and demonstrable improvement in our schools be- 
cause of such aid. 

In recent years, educational moving pictures have become a 
valuable adjunct to effective teaching. I advocate State aid, on a 
matching basis, whereby every school in the State may have such 
equipment and every school system an expanding film library. 

Our State University has grown greatly. It has expanded so 
that Connecticut is caring for its veterans' education as well as 
any state. Connecticut takes pride in her State University, and 
rightly so. You will be urged to consider appropriations for ex- 
pansion of the university at Storrs. 



F.E.P.C. 

I recommend the enactment of a Fair Employment Practices 
Act. 

In my opinion, this act should strengthen the existent State 
Inter-Racial Commission so that it will have the power to seek 
legal redress in court in any case where it believes that a citizen 
of Connecticut has been subjected to discrimination in employ- 
ment, labor unions or elsewhere, solely because of race, color, 
creed or national origin. 



governor's message 101 



FINANCES 

As Governor of the State, I am committed to a balanced budget. 
I believe in paying as you go. There will be no compromise on this 
point. The budget during my administration must be balanced, 
and to balance it we must exercise sound economics. 

For the next biennium, the State must spend at least 100 mil- 
lion dollars from the General Fund to conduct the current pro- 
gram of State government. If we include new expenditures for 
such projects as veterans' bonus, increased aid for education, re- 
placement of worn-out equipment, completion of war deferred 
maintenance work, this cost will mount. If we include the cost of 
new and extended services, it will mount even higher. 

To meet this budget of 100 million dollars or more, we can rely 
only on an anticipated State revenue of about 87 million dollars. 
Therefore, we are faced with the alternative of eliminating exist- 
ing State services to balance costs with income or else finding 
new sources of income. 

Certain services of the State government are absolutely essen- 
tial to the welfare of the State and her people. Others do not have 
that importance. During the life of this General Assembly bills 
will be introduced to provide many new projects. The proposals 
may be good; they may be excellent. But the acid test of all 
should be whether or not we can afford them. Therefore, every 
proposal that entails any expenditure of money must be scruti- 
nized very carefully. This is not the time for experiments in State 
expenditures. It is a time for sound economics and facing facts. 

I recommend that the General Assembly create a committee 
from its members to make an immediate study of possible econo- 
mies in the administration of our State government. I hope this 
will be one of your first actions, because a report from the com- 
mittee no later than the middle of the session is imperative if 
any of its proposals are to become operative. 

We all recognize that during the war new divisions of the State 
government had to be created to meet wartime demands. The need 
for many of them is now past, and they should be eliminated. A 
legislative study could correct this situation. It could also con- 
cern itself with departmental programs and personnel to adjust 
any unhealthy conditions of overlapping work or overstaffed per- 
sonnel. For example, I recommend consideration by such a Legis- 
lative Committee of the several divisions of State government 
that are concerned with State licenses and licensing. It may be 
that these various Boards and Commissions can be administered 
through one central agency to promote economy and efficiency. 

Government always expands. It never contracts without vigor- 
ous pressure. Such a Committee could initiate this pressure. It 
may find parts of our State government which can still perform 
efficiently after a reduction in the number of employee positions. 

Such a study and corrective action could be beneficial to the 



102 governor's message 

State and her people. It may reveal practical economies in the 
State budget. 

HEALTH 

Recent General Assemblies have considered the problem of the 
aged and chronically ill. The number of these people is increas- 
ing. Our hospitals and institutions are too crowded to care for 
them adequately. The old time Town Farm was a tragic solution. 
The number of Town Farms has recently decreased. Many have 
been improved. But there are too many Connecticut towns and 
cities that still permit conditions that are a blot on the record 
of the State. It is possible that the State has an obligation 
towards these people and this problem. Perhaps the time has come 
when we can no longer refer the problem of these unfortunates 
back to the community. You will receive the report of the Com- 
mission on the Care and Treatment of the Chronically 111, Aged 
and Infirm, which recommends State action, though at a much 
less cost than the proposals made to recent sessions of the Gen- 
eral Assembly. 

During your term, you will be asked to consider a District 
Health Bill to provide public health services to communities 
which desire it, w T ith the State bearing half the cost. If we can 
afford this, I believe it will be a forward step towards better 
statewide health conditions. Connecticut now stands in the very 
forefront among her sister states in the matter of health. Let us 
be sure she remains there. 



HIGHWAYS 

Our highways are the arteries of our daily life. Education, 
recreation, industry and our personal everyday activities depend 
on convenient automobile transportation. 

No state has a finer system of roads; none has built better 
bridges. But the job is not done. There are still Connecticut 
homes and farms which are at times marooned by muddy or icy, 
impassable dirt roads. 

In general, however, our most acute higlrway problem today is 
not rural. Those of us who live in the country drive regularly to 
the cities. All of us know from personal experience the difficulties 
of driving into a city whose streets are clogged with traffic. The 
recent improvements in Hartford, for instance, clearly demon- 
strate what direct access to the center of a city and rapid by- 
passes around a city mean to all autoists. 

I recommend an increase of one cent in the gasoline tax. With- 
out this, our program of highway development will be unduly 
postponed. By this increase, out-of-state cars will share further 
in the cost of our highways. Even with this increase, we will be 
paying, in total automobile taxes per vehicle, less than the na- 
tional average. 



governor's message 103 

You may wish to give consideration to the present method of 
dividing the Town Aid Funds. If our standard for an essential 
hard-surfaced road is one on which a year round resident is 
located, or a road used by the RFD or by a school bus, three 
towns have all such roads improved and forty-one have less than 
a mile each still to improve. On the other hand some towns with 
extensive road mileage still have many miles of essential unim- 
proved roads; fifteen towns have from twenty to seventy-three 
miles. Sixty towns had available in 1946 sufficent State funds on 
hand to complete all their essential unimproved roads. 

I live on a dirt road; I can testify to the dangers and diffi- 
culties of mud and ice on a dirt road. The present law, which 
divides State aid by towns without consideration of road mile- 
age, was passed fifteen years ago. I am not disloyal to my rural 
neighbors throughout the State, when I suggest that the great 
progress we have made in "pulling rural Connecticut out of the 
mud" makes a re-study of this law desirable. 

HUMANE INSTITUTIONS 

One of the penalties of modern civilization is the increasing 
number of our people who are mentally disturbed. Caring for 
them adequately is one of the most difficult and expensive obli- 
gations of the State. The problem is acute, and public interest 
is keen and more enlightened than ever before. 

We must face these problems. We must consider : How can 
these institutions be adequately staffed so that all facilities are 
utilized? What repairs and alterations can we afford in the com- 
ing biennium? Are these wards of the State properly protected 
from dangers, such as fire ? Should the State concentrate the care 
of the criminally insane in one institution? Can we care better 
for the harmless aged who now by hundreds are in mental insti- 
tutions ? Many of these questions will be discussed in part at 
least by special Commissions, whose reports will be submitted to 
you. All these questions must be faced. 

INDUSTRY 

We must always keep in mind the importance of industry and 
its workers to the life and prosperity of Connecticut. Industry 
must be protected and encouraged. In recent years, the State has 
developed an ambitious program to attract new business. This is 
practically self-preservation because with each passing day Con- 
necticut is in sterner competition with other states for new in- 
dustry and new business. It is incumbent upon this General As- 
sembly that it be aware of this fact, especially in its deliberation 
of measures pertaining to taxation and finances. 

I recommend to you a reduction in the Unemployment Compen- 
sation Tax, particularly in view of the reserves that have been 
created. 



104 governor's message 

JUDICIARY 

Like the Governors who have preceded me in recent years. I 
strongly favor the nomination of Town and City Court judges by 
the Governor subject to confirmation by the General Assembly. 

I also call your attention to the forthcoming report of the Con- 
ference of Probate Judges and the recommendations therein for 
changes in our probate system. 

LABOR 

Connecticut is proud of her working men and women. They 
are skilled, industrious and loyal to the best interests of our 
State and Nation. As they progress towards greater security and 
better living, the entire State gains. Labor legislation in this Ses- 
sion must make Connecticut even more attractive to our workers. 

Connecticut stands out among all states in the relations estab- 
lished and fostered between labor and industry. That relationship 
must be encouraged and continued. Without satisfied labor, we 
have no industry. Without industry, Connecticut has little left 
in its economic life. It is our dutv to safeguard the interests of 
both. 

I recommend an expansion in our Labor Mediation program. 
I favor legislation that will prohibit the employment of children 
under the age of fourteen years in industrial agriculture, and I 
recommend that the State Labor Department be adequately staffed 
with inspectors for the complete protection of the lives and limbs 
of workers. I also urge the extension of the Workmen's Compensa- 
tion Act to employers of five or less persons in all industries 
covered by the Act. I recommend strengthening this Act to ex- 
pedite more prompt payment of just compensation claims. 

OLD AGE ASSISTANCE 

When the $3.00 Old Age Assistance Tax was voted, it was ex- 
pected that this new source of State income would finance the 
expenditures for this program. It does not now do so. To do so, 
it would have to be at least $6.00. 

Furthermore, the maximum of $40 a month does not provide 
the help it did when this figure was voted in 1941. It should prob- 
ably be raised. Half of an increase of $5.00 would come from 
Federal funds. 

The State pays $4.00 a day for hospital care in most cases. No 
hospital today can render the service required at this rate. This 
means that our hospitals, already burdened with great difficulties 
due to rising costs, are contributing from their own funds to the 
care of the State's aged who are ill. I do not believe this is fair 
and recommend that you give consideration to this problem. 

I recommend legislation to protect the home property of bene- 
ficiaries of Old Age Assistance and Assistance to the Blind so 
that an exemption of at least $5,000 is granted to them. 



governor's message 105 



PARKS AND FORESTS 



Recreation is essential to the happiness and health of our 
people. I want them to have greater opportunities and facilities 
for recreation. We must place at their disposal appropriate por- 
tions of our State owned park and forest lands. 

I recommend the extension of present facilities and the greater 
development of existing acreage for wider use and benefit of the 
people of the State. 

STATE EMPLOYEES 

The State of Connecticut should be as good an employer as any. 
I want all State employees to know that they have the right of 
access to their departmental heads at any time for a discussion of 
affairs pertinent to their employment. I urge establishment of a 
Group Life Insurance Plan for their protection and working con- 
ditions as pleasant and adequate as any that can be found in 
private employment. 

At present nearly all State employees are receiving a cost of 
living bonus voted at the last Special Session. This totals over 
three million dollars for the biennium. I recommend that this be 
continued. 

VETERANS 

I recommend a State bonus for veterans of World War II. 

I recommend an increase, probably to twenty-five million dol- 
lars, in the Soldiers, Sailors and Marines Fund. 

I urge the adoption of a veterans' rental housing program 
whereby the State assumes the payment of local taxes on such 
new housing, up to five years, provided that the tax savings re- 
vert to the veteran-tenant in the form of a reduction in the 
amount of monthly rent. 

I ask you to consider the possibility of creating a single Veter- 
ans Commission that will combine and coordinate the programs 
of all Boards, Commissions and Departments now engaged in 
activities in behalf of veterans. 

It may be regretted that so much of this Inaugural Message is 
concerned with economics and fiscal matters. However, if I had 
failed to do so, I would be playing the ostrich. 

When Aristotle, 2300 years ago, wished to discuss the business 
of government, he had to coin a word to express his idea. He chose 
the Greek word for housekeeping, which is economics. He believed, 
as we do, that keeping house is generally wisely done, with insis- 
tence on getting one's money's worth and with strong opposition 
to waste. So we together may well study the economics of the 
State of Connecticut. 

During the war, nearly every Connecticut factory making war 
material won the Government's "E" flag. It is my hope and ex- 
pectation that this General Assembly and the State administra- 



106 governor's message 

tion will so act that the people of the State will feel we de- 
serve two "E" awards — Economy and Efficiency. 

Connecticut is a great State. We are fortunate to be part of it. 
Its past is glorious, its future bright. Let us never forget our 
heritage. We have beauty. We have hills and meadows, rivers and 
valleys, the Sound and our lakes. Let us use them wisely. They 
belong also to our grandchildren. Let us plan for an even finer, 
more beautiful Connecticut in which they may find greater satis- 
factions because of what we do in this Session. 

We have three great human principles to guide us. They are 
part of the Connecticut we do not see. Let us ever be aware of 
them. They are: 

First, a conviction of the worth of the individual. We fought 
for this. We believe each individual is a child of God. He is also a 
child of Connecticut's love of freedom. We believe the best govern- 
ment is the one which governs least, that government is the serv- 
ant, not the master. So we understand and appreciate one another, 
tolerant of our diflerences due to ancestry, race, religion, eco- 
nomic status. We of Connecticut believe in the dignity of man, of 
each human being. 

Second, a determination to promote social justice. This is the 
heart of democracy. We of Connecticut believe in the rule of law, 
in fair play in our economic life, in protection for those unable 
to care for themselves adequately. We are our brothers' keeper. 

Third, world peace and welfare. We are part of one world. We 
fought to bring freedom to that world. But we are not a warlike 
people. We believe that, in spite of all their differences, men can 
learn to live together, to "live and let live" without recourse to 
war. We have faith in the future. Connecticut has given great 
leadership to every effort toward world peace. We are not smug, 
self-complacent, arrogant. 

The tasks that you and I face are great. We should be humble 
and grateful for the opportunity of serving Connecticut. "The 
lines have fallen unto us in pleasant places, yea we have a goodly 
heritage." 

God grant us wisdom, so that the decisions made by this Gen- 
eral Assembly may make Connecticut an even better State today 
and in the years ahead.

•Special Session 



THE PASSAGE OF A BILL THROUGH 
THE CONNECTICUT GENERAL ASSEMBLY 



Hon. Chaxjncey E. Hutchings 

Representative from the 

Town of Harwinton 

Since the founding of the Connecticut Colony, the invaluable 
heritage of a free and democratic people, the privilege of the 
citizen to petition his government, has been considered an inalien- 
able right. Section 16 of Article One of the Connecticut Consti- 
tution, which grants the sanction of fundamental law to the 
protection of this principle, provides as follows: "The citizens 
have a right, in a peaceable manner, to assemble for their common 
good, and to apply to those invested with the powers of govern- 
ment, for redress of grievances, or other proper purposes, by 
petition, address or remonstrance". As the machinery of law- 
making has been developed down through the years, the Con 
necticut General Assembly has painstakingly honored and re- 
spected this right of the individual citizen to make his voice 
heard and his views considered in its deliberations. 

The part played by the individual citizen in the legislative 
process is not limited to the right of petition. Any citizen, in 
addition to petitioning the General Assembly, may have a bill 
introduced through a senator or representative. The senator or 
representative to whom such a request is made may, if he him- 
self supports and endorses the principles of the bill, give it the 
sanction of his name and support by introducing it as his own 
bill. If, on the other hand, he does not approve the bill, he 
will note beside his name the words, "By Request", which signify 
that he is introducing the bill at the request of some citizen and 
that he does not necessarily endorse it himself. 

Moreover, the role of the individual citizen extends beyond 
the initial stages of the legislative process. Any citizen caii 
attend public hearings on legislative bills held by the various 
committees of the General Assembly and there state his opinion 
and reasons either favoring or opposing specific bills being con- 
sidered by the said committees. 

The General Assembly, pursuant to the provisions of our 
Constitution, meets on the Wednesday following the first Monday 
in January in the odd-numbered years. In the interest of ex- 
pediency, it adopts a rule establishing a limitation on the time 
for the introduction of bills and other legislative measures. The 
rules of the 1947 session set the "dead-line" as the first Friday 
in February. Proposed legislation may not be received beyond 
said date. In order to enable itself to meet any exigencies or 

(132) 



PASSAGE OF A BILL 133 

emergencies which may arise during the session, however, the 
General Assembly has removed any "strait jacket" effect which 
this rule might have by permitting legislative measures to be 
raised in its committees at any time during the session. 

To assist legislators in the drafting of bills in proper legal 
form and to insure the consistency of proposed legislation with 
the provisions of our Constitution and its conformity with 
related statutory sections, the General Assembly has established 
a Legislative Research Department. Many legislators take advan- 
tage of this service which has been set up for their convenience 
and assistance, and often will leave measures which they are to 
support in this office to be perfected as to statutory language 
and form or often to be completely drafted. After the bill has 
been drafted in proper legal form, it is given to the Clerk of 
the House or the Clerk of the Senate by the sponsoring member, 
depending on which branch of the Assembly the sponsor is a 
member. 

The bill is now officially embarked upon its legislative journey. 
On the next succeeding legislative day it is read by its title and 
referred to a suitable committee by the President of the Senate 
or the Speaker of the House, as the case may be. This is called 
the first reading of the bill. The bill, at this time, is entered in 
the legislative journal and is given a number. 

An outstanding feature of the Connecticut General Assembly 
is its use of joint committees, composed of members of both the 
Senate and the House. Members are appointed by the President 
of the Senate and the Speaker of the House. The General Assembly 
of 1947 provided for the appointment of 36 such committees. 
Bills are channelled to these committees by the presiding officer 
of each legislative branch on the basis of subject matter. Other 
legislative bodies, including that of the federal government, 
make use of the dual committee system with separate committees 
for both House and Senate. Such a system brings a duplication 
of work and of public hearings. 

Committee members are chosen for their knowledge or interest 
in a specialized subject. Farmers are quite naturally qualified 
for the Agriculture Committee. A banker would be interested in 
Finance, Appropriations or Banks. Teachers, professors and social 
workers often provide talent for the Education or Public Welfare 
and Humane Institutions Committees. Committees generally are 
composed of nineteen members each, representing both majority 
and minority parties. 

The major part of the work of the General Assembly is done 
in Committee hearings. This explains why so many bills of a 
minor or non-controversial nature are quickly passed by the 
General Assembly without debate. The average member of the 
Legislature cannot familiarize himself with the some 2,300 odd 
bills that are presented before each session of the legislative 
body. He therefore generally accepts the judgment of the com- 
mittee which has considered the bill. The exceptions to this 



134 PASSAGE OF A BILL 

practice arise, of course, in connection with broadly controversial 
matters which have awakened wide public interest. 

When a bill has been received from the Clerk of the Senate 
or the House by a committee, the chairman of the committee 
sets a date for a public hearing. These hearing dates are widely 
publicized in legislative bulletins and in the press so that inter- 
ested citizens may make plans to attend. 

At the public hearing on the bill, any citizen can support or 
oppose the proposed measure. Such hearings are often of lively 
interest, particularly when proponents and opponents for a 
measure feel strongly about their respective views. Some hearings 
attract as many as 300 attendants and frequently last for four 
hours. 

After the public hearing on a bill has been held the committee 
then considers it in executive session. Here the "pros" and "cons" 
of the measure are studied and debated. Finally a vote is taken 
to render a favorable or an unfavorable report to the General 
Assembly. On the basis of a majority vote the measure is so 
reported. 

A committee, when it has completed action on a bill, will, 
if it has rendered a favorable report, submit the bill to the 
Legislative Research Commissioner to make whatever changes 
may be necessary and to insure its constitutionality, its cor- 
rectness of phraseology and its consistency with other statutes. 
The bill is then transmitted, together with the Committee's 
report, to the clerk of the House or Senate. If a bill has been 
unfavorably reported, the committee will submit such bill and 
report directly to the clerk of the House or Senate. For the 
second time the title of the bill is read before the General As- 
sembly with the statement that it has received a favorable or 
an unfavorable committee report. If it has received the former 
it is tabled for the calendar and printing. This means that it 
will be placed on the daily calendar for action of the General 
Assembly as a whole and that 550 so-called "file" copies of the bill 
will be printed for use of members of that body. If the bill has 
received an unfavorable report, it is tabled for the calendar only. 

The day after printed copies of the bill, as favorably reported 
by the committee, are available, the measure is ready for the 
final action of the General Assembly. On that day it is "starred 
for action" on the calendar and its title is once again read by 
the clerk. This is the third reading. A member of the committee 
which considered the bill makes a report on the bill and moves 
that the committee's report be accepted and the measure passed. 
If the measure be routine or non-controversial, the General 
Assembly will ordinarily approve it without debate. If there is 
a wide difference of opinion with respect to the bill, however, 
debate will ensue. This is finally resolved by a vote in which the 
majority rules. Voting procedure can take four different forms — 
a voice vote, a standing vote, a roll call vote, or a ballot vote. 

Amendments to the bill are in order during the debate and a 



PASSAGE OF A BILL 135 

vote is taken on each amendment. If amendments to any bill are 
adopted at the time of the third reading, such amendments are 
approved by the Legislative Commissioner for constitutionality, 
correctness of reference, etc., before final action on the amended 
bill is taken. 

After the bill has been passed in one branch of the Assembly, 
it is sent to the other branch where it receives its second reading 
by the clerk and is placed on the calendar. When it is "starred 
for action" it is considered in the same manner as in the branch 
of the Assembly in which it originated. In the event of disagree- 
ing action between the two branches of the General Assembly 
on a bill, a Committee on Conference is appointed for the purpose 
of making a compromise. 

After passage in either branch following the third reading 
the bill is held for one day for a motion to reconsider. Such 
motion can only be made by a member in the prevailing vote. 

After a bill has been passed by both branches it is delivered to 
the Engrossing Clerk who supervises its printing in final form. 
It is then signed by the Engrossing Clerk and taken by him, or 
his assistant, to the President of the Senate (Lieutenant Gov- 
ernor) and to the Speaker of the House for their signatures. 
Engrossed bills must be signed by the presiding officer of each 
branch in the presence of the Engrossing Clerk or his assistant. 
After being properly signed the bill is transmitted to the Secre- 
tary of the State for presentation to the Governor. 

The Governor may veto a bill while the General Assembly 
is in session by returning it within five days to the Secretary 
of the State, together with a statement of his objections. The 
Secretary of the State then takes the bill and the Governor's 
veto message to the House in which the bill originated and 
formally hands it to the Clerk of that body while it is in session. 
The veto may be overridden, however, by a simple majority vote of 
both the Senate and the House. If, while the General Assembly is 
in session, the Governor does not sign a bill five days after receiv- 
ing it, it automatically becomes a law. After adjournment of the 
General Assembly, a bill becomes law unless vetoed by the 
Governor within fifteen days after he receives it. If he vetoes 
the measure, he must file his reasons with the Secretary of the 
State. 

Public Acts passed by the General Assembly and approved by 
the Governor become law on the first day of October following 
adjournment unless the bill itself specifies a date upon which 
it shall become effective. Special Acts which do not specify an 
effective date become effective from passage, however, i.e., the 
date of the Governor's approval. 

Critics of the legislative process have declared that it is cumb- 
ersome and outmoded. They press for more streamlining, quicker 
action. It is true that the legislative process is a relatively 
slow one, but it should be stated that it was deliberately- 
designed so by the framers of our Constitution. Experience has 



J 36 PASSAGE OF A BILL 

shown that our system has achieved a balance between individual 
freedom and governmental efficiency. The legislators are agents 
delegated by their principals, the voters of this state, to make 
their laws. The power bestowed upon these agents is a broad 
one, but the framers of our Constitution saw fit to impose safe- 
guards and controls upon it. The individual citizen is given the 
opportunity to say to his agent, "The course of action which 
you propose to take will affect me in this way". By implication, 
he says, "Your agency is not unlimited as to time and duration, 
so consider these matters well, and weigh them carefully, for 
I shall not pass upon the benevolence of your intentions in 
determining whether to extend your agency; I shall consider 
merely the results which your actions have produced". By estab- 
lishing a series of checks and balances and by assuring careful 
consideration of every measure presented before the General 
Assembly, our Constitutional forefathers have bequeathed to us 
a system which insures our individual liberty and at the same 
time permits the passage of laws to meet our mutual needs and 
provide for our general welfare. Any change in the safe-guards 
now surrounding the passage of a bill will disturb the delicate 
balance created by the experience of a democratic people between 
individual freedom and governmental efficiency. Each, as it now 
exists, is too important to be sacrificed to the other. 



A FRESHMAN LEGISLATIVE REPORTER 
LOOKS AT CONNECTICUT GOVERNMENT 

By 
John K. Borland, Jr., The Hartford Times 

A veteran political reporter during the recent session of the 
General Assembly had this to say concerning the future of a 
controversial bill: 

"It will pass the House but will be killed in the Senate." 

The prediction later came true. Political lines had nothing to 
do with the result, since both houses were predominently the same 
party. His accurate forecast was based on his appreciation of 
the fundamental composition of each legislative body which would 
ring true regardless of the party in power. 

''You see," he explained, "the House is founded on the unit of 
government which is the town. Regardless of size, each town has 
equal representation with few minor exceptions. The Senate 
membership is based on population. Therefore, it reflects more 
the views of the large towns and cities — the big population 
centers." 

The newsman knew the particular bill would be generally 
favorable to the small towns, hence would pass the House. Con- 
versely, it would meet defeat in the Senate because the populace 
of the cities opposed the measure. 

In making this accurate observation, the reporter probably 
never stopped to consider that he was merely echoing, several 
centuries later, the deep-rooted reasoning used by the founders 
of the Connecticut Plan of Government — which later served as 
a pattern for the United States Constitution. 

This plan of checks and balances in the legislative halls and 
of geographical and population-based representation was given 
to Connecticut — and later to the nation — by the free men of 
Hartford, Windsor and Wethersfield in 1639. 

In the subsequent 300 years this same pattern has followed 
through in virtually the same form. It has meant that Con- 
necticut, sometimes called the "Commonwealth of Little Re- 
publics," has been able to maintain a system whereby each 
separate township had its own interests and preferences sustained 
by its representatives in the General Assembly. It has also 
followed that as cities grew in population they could exert 
more influence in the Senate. 

The result has been a blending of interests and compromises. 
True, each did not get all that it wanted in legislation but 
neither did one obtain too much at the expense of the other. 

The initial General Assembly in 1639 had only 19 members. 
Twenty-three years later when the Royal Charter was granted 

(137) 



138 CONNECTICUT GOVERNMENT 

by King Charles the membership jumped to 48. In 1818, when 
the Connecticut Constitution was adopted, there were 120 law- 
makers. Today there are 308, of which 272 are in the House. 

Federal constitutionalists, in general, followed this Connecticut 
pattern of geographical-population representation. They reversed 
the setup only in making the Senate mirror geographical repre- 
sentation and the House on population. The names were switched. 
The idea remained the same. 

The Connecticut Plan also gives the governor authority to 
veto measures which he believes are not in the public interest. 
This makes an additional check on legislation. A veto, provided 
the Legislature is in session to act upon it, requires a majority 
vote of both houses to override. Some other states, as well as the 
Congress, call for a two-thirds vote to override. 

Each veto stipulation has its merits and demerits. Some feel 
such action should be made fairly easy; others, that it be more 
difficult. The former advocate the predominance of the legis- 
lative branch; the latter, the executive. 

The administrative or executive branch is also given important 
rights. Chief of these is the power to make appointments to 
administrative posts and commissions. Here again is another 
check. The more important gubernatorial nominations must 
receive legislative approval. This feature is a deterrent to im- 
proper nominations. 

The only difficulty, in the opinion of many political observers, 
is that while appointments are for four-year terms on tho 
aA^erage, the governor's term runs for only two years. This situ- 
ation has, on occasions, resulted in placing a new governor in 
the position of dealing with a large number of hold-over com- 
missioners and officials of another political faith. At times this 
situation has placed road-blocks in the path of smooth adminis- 
tration. On the other hand, it has provided desirable checks. 

A new constitutional amendment to alleviate this through 
election of state officials, including the Governor, for four-year 
terms was presented to the voters in the fall of 1947. The out- 
come was not known at this writing. 

Although the Connecticut Plan is considered sound in funda- 
mentals, it must be operated by human beings — with mixtures 
of generosity and selfishness, good and bad, and subjective and 
objective approach to problems. 

It can and has made possible obstruction of good legislation 
because two contrasting groups have chosen to stubbornly hold 
their lines without spirit of co-operation or compromise. For- 
tunately, that is not too often the case. But, it is a constant 
threat. 

Political expediency has also too often been the course fol- 
lowed by both parties in Connecticut — as has been the case 
throughout the nation. That too — placing party chances of 
victory above the common welfare — can throw a monkey-wrench 
into well-designed legislative machinery. 



CONNECTICUT GOVERNMENT 139 

All this can lead to two conclusions: 

First, that Connecticut may well be proud of its form of 
government and the fact she was a pioneer in the field of rep- 
resentative government. This great tradition, when fully appre- 
ciated and coupled with a forward drive, can lead to much 
constructive action. The tools are balanced and polished and 
fitted into a safe and conservative system of government. 

Second, that Connecticut has a challenge to see its plan of 
government is maintained as efficiently as possible for the 
common good. It is not simply a case of sitting back and admiring 
a beautiful piece of machinery. It is precisely a job of seeing 
that it works properly. 

The sound system has done much for the state, the nation 
and the world. But tradition is not enough to carry the ship of 
state through rough waters. The real drive and impetus for 
good legislative and administrative practices still comes from 
the people — and through them from the elected and appointed 
officials. 

Good, competent and intelligent legislators and officials add 
up to good government under the Connecticut Plan.

Towns not maintaining vocational agriculture classes were 
eligible for state aid in sending qualified students to a nearby 
school in the above list. Students and parents could legally 
demand this opportunity. Arrangements were completed by the 
boards of education directly concerned. This offered educational 
advantages to small schools or those with already crowded facili- 
ties which might otherwise have needed to deprive deserving 
students of this vocational opportunity. Over twenty per cent of 
day class students during the year attended under general high 
school tuition grants or this special provision for state aid. 

These schools furnished practical and technical instruction in 
farming to adult farmers and younger persons in (1) evening 
classes, (2) part-time classes and (3) day classes. 

Future Farmers in the day classes alone had approximately 
$65,500 invested in their individual supervised farming pro- 
grams and in addition supplied nearly fifty thousand ten hour 
days of labor on general chores and farm work outside of school 
hours and during school vacations.

DISTRIBUTIVE EDUCATION 

James A. Dorsey, State Supervisor of Distributive Education 
Hartford 

Distributive Education, a division of Vocational Education, 
provides training for those entering the field of distribution as a 
career and for those who are presently employed in a distributive 
occupation such as retailing, wholesaling and the service trades. 
Within the secondary schools its primary purpose is to improve 
the performance of the trainees on the job and provide such in- 
formation as will enable the student to progress more rapidly 
in his chosen field of endeavor. 

Adult extension programs are available to provide current 
methods and procedures in the various phases in the area of 
distribution for those presently employed. 

There are two major classifications of programs in Distributive 
Education : ( 1 ) the cooperative part-time course — usually given 
to high school seniors, who devote one-half of their formal in- 
structional time to Distributive Education subjects and are re- 
quired to receive occupational experience on the job; such courses 
are now in operation in Bridgeport, Hamden, Meriden, Middle- 
town and Norwich. (2) Adult extension courses — which provide 
training for the regularly employed personnel in distributive 
occupations including special training programs for veterans 
on "How to Establish a Small Business" and miscellaneous train- 
ing programs given during the work day for supervisory per- 
sonnel. 

Such evening extension programs have been operated in 
Bridgeport, Bristol, Danbury, Hartford, Meriden, Middletown, 
Naugatuck, New Britain, New Haven, New London, Norwalk, 
Norwich, Putnam, Stamford, Torrington.

TOWNS, CITIES AND BOROUGHS 

The following list of municipal officers and Justices of the Peace was 
compiled from returns filed with the Secretary by the local municipal 
clerks through December, 1946. Where the name of the post-office or 
express office address of the town clerk, town treasurer or first selectman 
is other than that of the town itself, it is given. 

Statistics of towns, cities and boroughs are also secured from the 
clerks of the several municipalities annually, and upon them we depend 
for the accuracy of the data herein set forth. The area of the towns is 
taken from the 1902 report of the Bureau of Labor Statistics. These are 
the only complete data available and are quoted with the exception of 
those corrections made by the town clerks. The populations of towns are 
taken from the 1940 United States Census. The children are those be- 
tween the ages of 4 and 16 enumerated September, 1946. The grand 
lists are taken from returns filed with the tax commissioner for the year 
1946.

THE AMERICAN FLAG 

THE STATE FLAG 

STATE EMBLEMS 

AND 

STATE BUILDINGS 



THE AMERICAN'S CREED 

(The American's Creed by William Tyler Page was adopted by an act 
of Congress, April 6, 1918.) 

I believe in the United States of America, as a government of 
the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are 
derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a re- 
public; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect 
union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles 
of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American 
patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it 
is my duty to my country to love it, to support its constitution, 
to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all 
enemies. 



THE PLEDGE TO THE FLAG 

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America 

And to the .Republic for which it stands. 
One Nation, indivisible, 

With liberty and justice for all." 

The Pledge to the Flag, according to a report of the Historical 
Committee of the United States Flag Association, was written 
by Francis Bellamy (August 1892), a member of the editorial 
stall' of The Youth's Companion, in Boston, Massachusetts. ]t 
was first repeated at the exercises in connection with the celebra- 
tion of Columbus Day, October 12, 1892. 



THE AMERICAN FLAG, ITS ORIGIN 

The desire for a flag to symbolize the pride in a locality or 
organization runs far back into the colonial period. In 1747 flags 
for individual military companies were fairly common. Thus by 
1776 the colonists were accustomed to having their own flags 
and it was but natural that the Continental Congress instruct a 
committee composed of George Washington, Robert Morris and 
Colonel George Ross to devise and produce a flag for the United 
States. This Committee with the probable aid of Betsy Ross de- 
signed a flag which is the basis of our present national flag. On 
June 14, 1777, this flag was officially adopted by the passage of 
the following resolution : 

'"Resolved, that the flag of the thirteen United States 
be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that 
the union be thirteen stars, white on a blue field, 
representing a new r constellation." 

(420) 



It is difficult to prove when and where the flag adopted in 
1777 was first publicly displayed. New York claims one of the 
earliest uses of the flag for military purposes when it was used 
at Fort Stanwix. 

The tradition that Betsy Ross, as early as June 1776, made 
a Stars and Stripes flag from a pencil sketch supplied by Wash- 
ington but changed the points of the stars from six to five, has 
become a classic. Historians doubt its accuracy and modern his- 
torical researchers are giving much thought to Francis Hopkin- 
son of Xew Jersey as the possible designer and the Fillmore or 
Bennington flag as the first flag. 

The flag with the thirteen stripes and thirteen stars, authorized 
on June 14, 1777, continued to be used as the national emblem 
until Congress passed the following act which President Wash- 
ington signed : 

"That from and after May 1, 1795, the flag of the 
United States be fifteen stripes, alternate red and 
white; and that the union be fifteen stars, white in 
a blue field." 

This action was necessitated by the admission of the States 
of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. This was the flag which 
Francis Scott Key saw waving over Fort McHenry and was in- 
spired to write the "Star Spangled Banner". 

With the admission of more new states, it became apparent 
that the 1795 flag would have to be further modified. Therefore 
the final form of our flag was fixed by another act of Congress, 
signed by President Monroe on April 4, 1818, providing: 

That from and after the fourth day of July next, 
the flag of the United States be thirteen horizontal 
stripes, alternate red and white; that the union 
have twenty stars, white in a blue field. 

"That on the admission of every new state into the 
Union, one star be added to the union of the flag; 
and that such addition shall take effect on the Fourth 
of July next succeeding such admission." 

From 1818 to the present the flag has changed only in ar- 
rangement of the stars when a new state was admitted to the 
Union. On October 26. 1912, President Taft, by executive order, 
designated which star was to stand for which state. There were 
to be six rows of eight stars each and the stars were to symbolize 
the states in the order in which they ratified our national Con- 
stitution. In this arrangement the fifth star stands for Con- 
necticut.

THE STATE FLAG 



The first proposal for legislation adopting a State Flag was 
introduced to the General Assembly by the following communica- 
tion from Governor 0. Vincent Coffin, dated May 29, 1895: 

"I have the honor to transmit herewith a memorial and accom- 
panying documents from the Anna Warner Bailey Chapter of the 
Daughters of the American Revolution concerning the formal 
adoption of a State flag, and beg to bespeak your early attention 
to the patriotic purposes therein set forth." 

A Resolution appointing a special committee was adopted the 
same day, and on July 4, 1895 House Joint Resolution No. 480 was 
approved, w T hich reads as follows : 

"Resolved by this Assembly: Section 1. That the flag which 
has up to the present time been generally accepted as the flag of 
this State ought to be officially and formally designated as such ; 
and to this end that such designation be carefully and accurately 
prepared, the Adjutant-General is hereby instructed to prepare an 
official description of the State flag and report the same to the 
next session of the General Assembly." 

Adjutant General Charles P. Graham submitted a very interest- 
ing historical report of the use of a state flag, dated January 4, 
1897, a photostatic copy of which may be seen at the State Library. 

The General Assembly of 1897 provided the following to be the 
official description of the State Flag. 

"'The following-described flag is the official flag of the state. 
The dimensions of the flag shall be five feet and six inches in 
length ; four feet and four inches in width. The flag shall be of 
azure blue silk, charged with a shield of rococo design of argent 
white silk, having embroidered in the center three grape vines, 
supported and bearing fruit in natural colors. The bordure to the 
shield shall be embroidered in two colors, gold and silver. Below 
the shield shall be a white streamer, cleft at each end, bordered 
by gold and browns in fine lines, and upon the streamer shall be 
embroidered in dark blue letters the motto 'Qui Transtulit 
Sustinet' ; the whole design being the arms of the state." 
(Revised Statutes of 1930, Section 2238.)

THE STATE TREE 



(GEN. STATUTES 1947, SUPPL., SEC. 609i) 

"The White Oak, Quercus Alba, 
Shall Be The State Tree." 



THE CHARTER OAK 



"Only God can make a tree" 

In our busy lives, let us cherish the memory of the 

Charter Oak — true to its trust and unto the end, an oak. 

The famous old Charter Oak fell with a tremendous crash 
during the great storm at quarter before one o'clock on the 
morning of August 21, 1856. This famous monarch of the forest 
whose history is so intimately entwined in that of Connecticut, 
was supposed to be upwards of a thousand years of age. 

Before Governor Wyllys came to America, he sent his steward 
forward to prepare a place for his residence. As he was cutting 
away the trees upon the hillside of the beautiful "Wyllys place" a 
deputation of Indians came to him and requested that he would 
spare this old hollow oak. They declared that it had been the 
"guide of their ancestors for centuries". 

On the 31st of October, 1687, Sir Edmund Andros, attended by 
members of his Council, and a bodyguard of sixty soldiers, entered 
Hartford to take by force the Charter granted to the Colony by 
Charles the Second in 1662. By stratagem, however, the Charter 
was removed from the assembly room and concealed by Captain 
Joseph Wadsworth, a patriot of those times, in the hollow of the 
Wyllys Oak, afterwards known as "The Charter Oak". 

In 1689, King James abdicated, and on the 9th of May that year 
Governor Treat and his associate officers resumed the government 
of Connecticut under the Charter, which had been preserved in 
the Old Oak.

Connecticut State Seal 






THE STATE SEAL 

A complete history of the seal as then used, was published in the 
Register and Manual of 1889. 



The first Colonial seal seems to have been suggested by General 
Fenwick of that time. This seal succeeded the British seal. It was 
slightly oval with a beaded border and smaller in size than the 
reproduction given here of the present seal. It was described as 
follows : 

"This seal represents a vineyard of fifteen vines, supported and 
bearing fruit." Above the vines, a hand issued from the clouds at 
the left of the observer, holding a label with the motto: "Sustinet 
qui transtulit." 

After the Colony received its charter the first General Assembly 
thereafter on October. 1662, directed its continuance as the State 
Seal. 

When the government of the Colony was taken over by Sir 
Edmund Andros, this seal was destroyed. On October 25, 1711, the 
General Assembly directed that a new seal be adopted. This seal 
was still oval in shape and considerably larger than the other. 
Instead of fifteen vines, there were but three, and there was a 
hand midway to the left of the observer and pointed to them. 

The immediate predecessor to the present seal was adopted in 
1784 and had four clusters of grapes on the upper two vines and 
five on the lower. The hand was omitted and the scroll and motto 
appeared beneath the clusters of grapes as in the present seal. 
This design was made in two seals, one for impressing documents 
and another for wax. 

One of these seals, or that used for impressing documents, 
became damaged. The other, or that used for impressing wax. 
was given to Yale University, while the former rests in the 
corner-stone of the State Library. 

The General Assembly of 1931, by Chapter 54, described the 
Great Seal, and an official drawing was made upon parchment, 
which drawing may be seen in the office of the Secretarv.

Mountain Laubel— JTaZ mia Latifolia 
State Flower of Connecticut 



THE STATE FLOWER 



The mountain laurel, designated in 1907 as the State Flower of 
Connecticut, is perhaps the most beautiful of native American 
shrubs. Its fragrance and the massed richness of its white and 
pink blossoms, so vividly in contrast with the gloom of the virgin 
forest, at once attracted the notice of the early settlers and 
explorers. John Smith mentioned it in his "General History" of 
1624. In 1750, the Swedish traveller, Peter Kalm, sent specimens 
of it to Linnaeus, and the famous botanist, finding that it 
belonged to a genus of evergreen hitherto unknown, gave it the 
name Kalmia latifolia. In the first name he honored his corres- 
pondent, and in the second, described the '"wide-leaved" charac- 
teristic of the plant. 

Because it bore some resemblance to the European laurel, the 
settlers of New England already spoke of it as "laurel" or 
"mountain laurel." They also adopted the name "spoonwood", 
from the Indians, who had carved some of their eating utensils 
from the close-grained wood. A later generation dubbed it "Calico 
bush" from its resemblance to the printed cloth, and both of these 
descriptive names are still occasionally heard. 

In Connecticut, the mountain laurel blossoms in the latter part 
of June. It is characteristic of the plant that the flower clusters 
appear in greatest profusion every second or third years, so that 
the area enriched by it in one season, may have little to show in 
the next. But as with other evergreens, the foliage is prized as 
well as the flower, and the wide use of its mountain laurel for 
decorative purposes prompted Connecticut to protect its state 
flower by the passage of the "Laurel Law," a pioneer enactment 
in the field of conservation. 

The mountain laurel's immediate relatives in America are the 
azalea and the rhododendron. It is also cousin to the huckleberry 
and the blueberry, so abundant in our fields. 

For a complete description of the mountain laurel, and the 
measures that should be taken for its protection, see P. L. 
Buttrick, "Connecticut's State Flower, The Mountain Laurel."

The American Robin — Turdus Migratorius 
State Bird of Connecticut 



THE STATE BIRD 

(Gen. Statutes, 1943 Suppl. Sec. 472g) 

The American Robin is a true thrush of the family Turdidce, 
and is found in summer throughout North America from Alaska 
to Virginia. The name Robin is applied to a number of familiar 
birds but in North America it is the Turdus migratorius. (Mean- 
ing a migratory thrush.) 

The real "Robin Red-breast" is a native of the Old World — 
a little bird formed much like our Bluebird with a dark brown 
back and reddish-orange throat and breast. Our so-called Robin 
is a large migratory thrush with a reddish-brown or tawny breast 
and a loud cheery song, but our forefathers named him Robin in 
remembrance of the beloved English bird, and despite the protests 
of naturalists the name is still used. 

Most people do not know that many Robins spend the entire 
winter in New England where they roost among the evergreens in 
swamps, feed on winter berries and come out into the fields occa- 
sionally when the snow has vanished during a thaw. This common 
habit is so little known that nearly every winter the newspapers 
publish articles predicting an early spring because the " Robins 
have arrived early". 

The 1943 General Assemblv adopted the American Robin as 
the official State Bird.

THE EXECUTIVE RESIDENCE 

990 Prospect Avenue, West Hartford 



The Executive Residence was built in 1909 by Dr. George C. F. 
Williams, who occupied it until 1933. The house is of Georgian 
Colonial design of waterstruck brick with limestone trim and slate 
roof. The original cost of the development of the property was 
$300,000. The purchase price to the state was $38,928. The property 
consists of approximately six acres of grounds and a 19-room resi- 
dence and a garage with caretaker's quarters. It is located at 
990 Prospect Avenue near Elizabeth Park, famous nationally for 
its rose gardens. Situated on a hill the Executive Residence over- 
looks the city of Hartford and the central feature of the view is 
the State Capitol dome. 

The property was purchased by the state in August, 1943 after 
thirty-eight pieces of property throughout the state were in- 
spected and visited by the 1943 Legislative Committee on the 
Executive Residence. 

The furniture and decorations are 18th Century originals and 
reproductions. On loan at the Residence are furniture, pewter, 
ceramics and paintings from the Mabel Brady Garvan Collection 
of the Yale University Art Gallery. The collection was a gift to 
Yale University by Francis P. Garvan, a native of East Hartford, 
Connecticut, and at one time Assistant United States Attorney 
General. He was one of the outstanding collectors of Americana 
in the nation. Items loaned to the state are, for the most part, 
of Connecticut origin and range from a tall case clock nearly 
200 years old, which was made by Asabel Cheney of East Hart- 
ford, to two pewter tankards made by Thomas Danforth II of 
Middletown. 

Governor Raymond E. Baldwin and his family occupied the 
residence on September 14, 1945. The formal public opening cere- 
monies were held on October 18, 1945.

THE STATE CAPITOL 



In 1871 the General Assembly appointed a commission to contract for 
and fully complete a Capitol building in Hartford, and appropriated five 
hundred thousand dollars, authorizing the city of Hartford to appropriate 
and issue bonds to the extent of one million dollars for the same purpose. 

The commission accepted the present site from the city of Hartford, 
and the plan of Richard Marshall Upjohn of New York, as a design for 
the building, which was built by James G. Batterson of Hartford. 

In 1873 the plan was changed to a design for the present fireproof 
building, and five hundred thousand dollars additional appropriated by 
the State. A new commission was also appointed. In 1875 this was supple- 
mented by a further and final appropriation of one million dollars and in 
that year Hartford became the Capital of the State. 

The entire cost, including heating and ventilating apparatus, and such 
statuary as was placed at the time of erection, was $2,532,524.43, and the 
cost of the furniture was about one hundred thousand dollars more. 

The General Assembly opened its first regular session in the building 
in January, 1879, but it was not fully completed until some months later. 

The building at one time contained the State Library. Part of the space 
used for such purpose however has since been remodeled and now con- 
tains the present Senate Chamber. The Supreme Court also held sessions 
here and the hall which was used for this purpose is now part of the 
offices of the Personnel Department. 

The rooms used for offices and committees are in number about ninety- 
two and are numbered from one hundred onward, with the exception of 
the Senate Chamber, Representatives Hall and the room now used for the 
Judiciary Committee, formerly the Old Senate Chamber. The present 
Senate Chamber in addition to seating the Senate of thirty-six members, 
can comfortably seat approximately three hundred additional persons, 
while the House of Representatives, besides seating two hundred and 
seventy-two members, can seat with the aid of its galleries about six 
hundred more. 

The dimensions of the Capitol Building are as follows : 

Extreme length, two hundred ninety-five feet, eight inches: width of 
central part, one hundred eighty-nine feet four inches ; of wings, one 
hundred eleven feet eight inches ; height from ground to top of roof, 
ninety-two feet eight inches ; to top of crowning finial, two hundred forty- 
five feet six inches. 

It is located upon a hill overlooking what was at one time the campus 
of Trinity College and it is within a short distance of the Union Depot 
and but a few blocks from the new Post Office. Its grounds can be 
approached by drives, from Ford, Trinity and Washington Streets or 
by way of Capitol Avenue. 

Adjacent and making complete the picturesque setting of the State 
Capitol is Bushnell Park, this covers 41.27 acres. On the grounds of the 
Park near the east entance is the statue of General Israel Putnam and 
statues of Horace Wells and a Memorial to Veterans of the Spanish War 
are located in that part of the Park beyond Trinity Street. Upon the 
terrace and to the north of the Capitol are two nine inch Dahlgren guns, 
which were used on the warship Hartford. Conspicuous from all direc- 
tions looking to the Capitol from the north side is the Corning Fountain 
with Indian Figures supporting it and a memorial arch spanning Trinity 
Street. Throughout the Park trees are planted of diffierent varieties and 
from spring to late fall make its surrounding unsurpassed by any Capitol 
grounds. 

The exterior of the building is of marble and granite, the marble being 
quarried from East Canaan, Connecticut, and the granite from Westerly, 
Rhode Island. 

(437) 



At the north side above the entrance appears in bas-relief figures, 
Colonial Life as follows: "Indian Attack upon a Fort." Wadsworth 
Hiding the Charter," while in the center, is the Coat of Arms ; also 
"Putnam Leaving His Plow," "John Holmes Sailing Past a Dutch Fort." 
Above these in order follow statues of the colonial leaders, John Haynes, 
Joseph Wadsworth, John Winthrop, Jr., Theophilus Eaton, John Mason 
and Roger Ludlow. In bronze medallion, upon one side of the entrance 
is the bust outline of General Joseph R. Hawley, whilst upon the other 
side is the bust outline of late Senator Orville H. Piatt. 

On the east front upon pedestals similarly arranged, are also statues 
cf colonial leaders, Thomas Hooker, Roger Sherman, Jonathan Trumbull 
and John Davenport. Medallion heads upon the east front of the Capitol 
depict those of the State distinguished in arts and letters as follows : 
Joel Barlow, George Berkeley, Horace Bushnell, Xoah Webster, John 
Trumbull, Jonathan Edwards and again in bas-relief : "Hooker's March 
to Hartford," "The Charter Oak," and "Davenport Preaching at New 
Haven." 

On the south side of the building there appear in niches the statues of 
Generals John Sedgwick and Alfred Terry, while on the west side of the 
building statues in the niches are, Oliver Wolcott, David Humphreys, 
David Wooster and Oliver Ellsworth. On the grounds just off the south- 
east driveway are located bronze statues of Col. Thomas Knowlton and 
Governor Richard D. Hubbard, while at the entrance of this driveway is 
the "Petersburgh Express," a mortar relic of the Civil War. 

Within the building at the west end protected in glass cases are the 
various flags used by regiments in the Civil. Spanish and World Wars 
which were carried by military or naval divisions of Connecticut engaged 
therein. There are also bronze statues of Nathan Hale and William A. 
Buckingham, model of the statue formerly on the Capitol dome and the 
figure head which once adorned the prow of the Flagship Hartford. About 
the first floor are also relics of the Civil War, being a portion of a tree, 
taken from the battlefield of Chickamauga and a wheel of a cannon used 
by the 1st Conn. Lt. Bt. & Vols., in various battles in the South. In the 
south lobby is a revolving cannon taken from the Spanish warship 
Viscaya and a camp bedstead used by Marquis de Lafayette. 

The crowning feature of the Capitol was the winged bronze figure 
representing the Genius of Connecticut, by Randolph Rogers, Rome, 1877 
and cast by Ferd v Miller & Sonne. Munchen, 1878. It measured seven- 
teen feet to the tip of its wings, weighed six thousand six hundred 
pounds, and cost $14,000. The plaster cast in the north corridor of the 
Capitol is the same as the one from which the bronze was cast. In 1938 
the Genius was removed and replaced by a temporary stone finial. 

The twelve marble statues standing upon the twelve angles of the 
dome at the base of the cone represent Agriculture, Commerce, Educa- 
tion. Music, Science and Force. There are two of each. The models from 
which these statues were cut were modeled by J. Q. A. Ward of New 
York and are now standing on the copings of the two main stairways 
leading to the balcony of the House of Representatives. The statues are 
twice the size of the models. 

On the first floor are the offices of the Comptroller, Treasurer and 
Bureau of School Fund, State Auditors, and the Superintendent of the 
Capitol. 

On the second floor are the offices of the Governor, the Secretary of the 
State, Legislative Commissioner, the Hall of the House and rooms gen- 
erally used for hearings of Judiciary and Appropriations Committees. 

On the third floor are the offices of the Lieutenant-Governor, Attorney- 
General, Commissioner of Finance, Personnel Director, Budget Director, 
members of the Press and the Senate Chamber. 

On the fourth floor are the offices of the Purchasing Director, Phar- 
macy Commission and Committee rooms in addition to the room generally 
used by the Judiciary Committee and Appropriations Committee on the 
second floor. 

On the fifth floor are the offices of the Analytical Department (Comp- 
trollers), the Capitol Restaurant, the Photostat and Stock Room (Secre- 
tary of the State).

CONNECTICUT TOWNS IN THE ORDER 

OF THEIR ESTABLISHMENTS; WITH 

THE ORIGIN OF THEIR NAMES 

Until 1700 almost the only official action of the colonial govern- 
ment (General Court) in regard to town organization, was to 
authorize the town name, usually chosen by its leading man, 
from -his home in England. In October, 1700, we find implied or 
quasi incorporation, such as exists to this day in the records. 
"This assembly doth grant to the inhabitants of the town of 
Lebanon all such immunities, privileges and powers, as generally 
other townes within this Colonie have and doe enjoy." The 
authoritative legal definition of a town in England, contemporary 
with the earliest Connecticut settlements is given in the first 
edition of Coke's Commentaries upon Littleton, published 1628: 
"It can not be a town in law, unless it hath, or in past time hath 
had, a church, and celebration of Divine services, sacraments and 
burials." The churches, which moved bodily, with their pastors, 
from Massachusetts to Connecticut, proceeded to exercise the 
secular powers which we regard as those of the town, but the 
English township is known by its ecclesiastical name of parish. 
Several of our towns were first set off as parishes from great 
town-tracts; yet the town in Connecticut colony essentially 
separated church and state in government, in that it never re- 
stricted political suffrage to church members. As to dates, the 
official colonial records are followed, as soon as they begin, 1636. 

THE COLONY 

1. Windsor, settled by a company from Plymouth Colony, arriving 

with the frame and materials of a trading house on their vessel 
Sept. 26, 1633. This house was set up, 80 to 100 rods below 
the mouth of the Farmington River, on a tract previously 
bought of the original Indian proprietors. Before the summer 
of 1635, the settlers had bought Great Meadow, north of the 
Farmington, and placed cattle and servants on their lands. 
They sold out, 1637 and 1638, to Dorchester, Mass., settlers,
