One of the most significant off' lfthe' Commission's recommendaV j tions is that all personnel now outside the Civil Service regulations employed by departments of ! govrnment or by the , boards, ! commissions and agencies, be .1 brought within the provision of the Civil Service Act .

' .', j ' Well, what do you know . . . even the Soviet agents; in the Red spy network, had their housing troubles in Ottawa.

' " ' ' i ; He asked that Moscow give his rival the old "heave-ho" so that he and his staff could take over the bigger house, and over the objections of former Soviet Ambassador Georges Zaroubln this was done.

I. - i- f...: )' ; "The aggregate cost of the increased rates- of ' remuneration which we have recommended for A deputy ministers and other prin cipal officials, and of the new positions which we think should be crfated would, in our Opinion.' be a cheap price to pay for the increased efficiency and the very substantial savings which should result from the proposed changes in the machinery and procedures of the organization as .a whole.. ' "V . -r-r Among new positions sponsored by the commission are those of personnel officers in each Government; department to be responsible for administration of personnel, and of an entire new staff for the establishments and personnel division of Treasury Board. . Veterans' Preference. I 1 I' Dealing with - the absolute preference given by the ' Canadian Government to veterans with overseas service to their credit, the commission feels that It Is not wholly satisfactory In the, United States, It points out, veterans are given a five to 10-polnt preference, and "in the United Kino dom a high proportion only of the appointments are reserved for veterans, thereby allowing a margin of flexibility and for the efficient planning for the, future requirements of the Service. -We fee". the report reads, "that the operation . of the absolute preference In Canada should be reviewed' with the object jof achieving a system that Is ' designed to be both in the best long-term Interests of the whole body of veterans as eltisens, and In the best Interests of the present and future efficiency of the Public Service." ; i .. :. .-! .
