Blt-i and pieces of the badly assembled structure have been reshaped and rearranged here and there. But no plan for e thorough reshuffling ever got to first base. Experts on public administration wou'L be surprised )t the present proposal by Herbert Hoover's Commission on Government Organization bogged down. Yet they have some hope that.this plan will succeed. The first president to send a re- organisation plan to the congressional executioners' block was William Howard Taft. He hud a commission study the matler for two years and submitted his plan in 1912 Although Congress did nothing acbout it at the time, some of Its features were adopted in later years, It gave Impetus to the government pension and retirement programs. To it the Budget Bureau and the General Accounting Office owe their lives. , In 1920, as soon as (lie first world war was out of the way, a group of private citizens formed the National Budget Committee, made a. study and submitted to reorganization proposal. In 1923 the movement flared in spectacular flizle A. Joint congres- ional committee studied the matter. The Brookings Institution submitted a plan. Then President Harding placed a reoganization preprogram before Congress. It was sent to the Joint committee and was rejected Instead- the committee recommended a plan of Its own to Congress, and Congress turned it down. Herbert Hoover seems to have been the next man to give serious consideration to the matter. When he was secretary of commerce, he made some far reaching reorganiia- lion proposals primarily affecting his own department. In 1932 Hoover managed to get Corgress.lo pass the "Economy Act of 1932". whlch'gave him authority to effect reorganizations, subject to agency; centralizing all federal disbursing In the Treasury; and consolidating Hie Immigration and naturalization services within the Labor Department. Reorjranlznllon became a big issue again In 1937, when a Senate committee had the Brooklngs Institution make another study of the problem. Then the president appointed a Commute on Administrative Management, headed by Louis Brownlow. A reorganization act was adopted In 1939, based primarily on the Bvownlow report. It gave the Pre.-> Ident temporary authority to effect reorganizations .subject to a ve*o by both houses of Congress within 60 days. II exempted about 20 agencies, liowever, [rom reorganization, thus making a thorough shake-up Impossible. Roosevelt promulgated two reorganization orders In 1939 and three In 19*0. Congress didn't reject any of them. The first plan was the most far- reaching reorganization ever accomplished. It created the Executive Office of the President, the Federal Security Agency, the Federal Works Agency and the Federal Loan Ai;ency—drawing Into them units which bad been scattered throughout the government. The reorganization act exoired hi 1941 but was recnacted In IMS. Before the 1945 act expired last yeiif, President Truman had submitted seven reorganization plans. Three were rejected, but one of these, establishing a permanent Federal Housing Agency, was later approved- All of these reorganization plans did some good, in the opinion of public administration speciall.Ms But. they say. none of them attacked the problem on a broad front. Hoover Commission reports so far indicate that Its members feel that Inefficiency and waste wilf not be eliminated until the whole federal sy.stem of purchasing, personnel procurement and administrative management is overhauled.
