Very few agencies, particularly governmental agencies, are free from the constant fight for increased or continued appropriations. The old battle-cry of more funds is familiar to all legislators. Often, of course, it is justified, but it must be remembered that this objective, per se, is not the goal of the organization. The job to be done can be over-financed. The demand for money should have a logical and demonstrable basis. Furthermore, in the case of a fire-control program, other objectives that are sometimes lost sight of can be attained while the fight for adequate funds still goes on. The author undertakes to point out some of these other objectives and to suggest methods to rationalize the request for adequate funds.
