FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 1949 BLYTREVTLLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS PACT 1 THE NATION TODAY Other Reorganization Plans Hove Passed But Government \Has Kept Right on Expanding By Mjj-low WASHINGTON, June 17. (*•>— ThU U the ilory of a big, sloppy, wir giant called the government. 1 And it explains how President Trunian just got * new broom from grrsi to tidy up the Giant. 4 Ever since its birth in the 18th ntury, the government has be*n [getting too big for Its britches: An agency here doing more or I less the same kind of work being Idone by in agency there: an agency [springing up under one department I when it belonged inside another; * I lot of people doing practically the I same work a lot of other people [were doing. All this became pretty obvious. I As long ago as 1912, President WU- Ilisun Howard Taft sent an overhaul Iplan to Congress. Eventually, Con- Igress acted on some of it. Mean| lime, the giant got bigger. President Taft's reorganization |p!an was the first. Other presi- [rtents after him had plaivs, partic- |ularly Presitient Roosevelt. Some were okayed by Congress. IStill, the tiovernment grew bigger |till it bulged. Commission Sel Up Finally, about two years ago. Icongfess decided exiwrt help was •needed to study [he wliole govern- Iment set-up and suggest ways of • pulling the loose ends together, flopping off fat, and making the Iwhoie thing more businesslike and heaper to run. It set up a 12-man commission, •helped by a big staff of experts and Iheaded by former President Hoover. IA few months ago this Hoover Com•mission began turning out its re- |porbs and recommendations, 18 in if President T>uman was all for Wem. It was clear that, if the Job was Igoing to be done. Congress would I have to give Mr. Truman a pretty Ifree hand and its blessing. Months [passed in arguments in Congress. But yesterday. Congress voted Mr. iTruman power to reorganize, or loverhaul. the whole executive branch of the government. This didn't give him any power to jussle the other two branche.i: [the legislative (congress) and the udiciary (courts). Tim Is what will happen: The President will send R number ' reorganization plans to Congress. He won't try to do the whole reor- anization job in one plan or even . one year. Some plans now, some next year. This will mean eliminating some Agencies, combining others whose rork overlaps, shifting others ground to make them more useful, ind, at the. same time, cut down \\\t expense of running the govern- Mr. Truman won't have a com- hletely free hand. Before he can ut any plan into effect, he must fcubmit it tc Congress. If ,at the end J)f 60 days, Ccmeress has done noihIna: to block the plan, he can go with [it. Coagre^ can block . in two ways only. These would fbme about: 1. Tf Congress quits for the year rithin the f30-days after a plan been submitted to it. For exkmple: If Mr. Truman offers a plan In Congress next Monday and Con- press quits before the end of 60 after Monday. Either House Can Veto 2. If, before the end of the 60 [lays, a majority of the full mem- ership of either House votes against |t. This would mean 218 of the 435 [louse members—49.of the 96 Sena- ors—would have to vote against a |j)an to stop it. Whether the plans offered by Mr. >uman follow exactly the reconi- nendations of the Hoover Oom- nission remain to be seen. Mr, Tni- nin has had a staff of his own ex- •erts working on plans for months. He said yesterday, just before tongress voted him the power to < nhead, that he has plans ready, l— If he offers a plan now. Congress have to stay in session till to let the 60 days elapse efore he could put it into opera- on. Maybe Congress will go home ore then, killing reorganization this year.
