(If}— When you see some ol the plans ta reorganize the government, It's like looking through the window ol ah antique shop where someone hu thrown the furniture around. ; The plain, which are trying to straighten out the mess, show »'li«t a hodge-podge the government his become over > great many years. It's a machine that's been patched and pieced together. ; That's why Congress set up a+— 12-man commission, i headed by Tar Regitiration Law *t-Up Not Ready So .itn Holder f Art So/* LITTLE ROCK, June 23 MV-' 'h«r«'« no cloud on conditional utomobllc sales in Arkansas since February jecause of the 1949 auto Ule registration law.

The attorney general's opinion •ent to the Revenue Department. firmer President Hoover, to study the' government and suggest ways of Improving it. The commission oaade 2of recommendations. ;And that's why, following those recommendations—although not in every detail—President Truman Ihls week asked Congress' okay on putting through seven plans. He'll offer more later. Here's an example of one of his plans: ''. Transfer the bureau of ernploy- rnent security froni the federal Security Administration, which ticnts with health and welfare, to the Labor Department. Why? i.Because (he bureau handles the government's part In the pay the states give unemployed workers. Since that Involves labor, he thinks the bureau ought to be tit the Labor Department, whose whole Job is with workers. Too Many Speflal Agencies That's an example of a special nfiency, created at some time or other, to handle a special job. At the time it seemed all right to put It one place. Now it's clear It really belongs somewhere else. Here's another: Mr. Truman wants the Public Roads Administration—which, after all, deals with transportation—placed in the Commerce Department which deals with commerce and transportation. At this moment the PRA is in the Federal Works Agency. Now take the three-man Civil Service Commission which handles all government workers who are in the U. 8. Civil Service system. The commission itself has 4,000 em- ploye*. At this moment, because neither Congress nor anyone else ever made it clear, til three commls- aionera share responsibility for the 4,000 employes of the commission Thia spread! confusion and robs th« commission of some of time that ought to be spent on th« wholt, wide civil service ays- em, So Mr. Truman suggests: The chairman alone should be responsible for the commission's •mpioyes. This will give the other wo commissioners more time for heir other work. Would Fix Responsibilities The same thing has happened n the five-man maritime com- nlssion, which has 6.500 employes but whose main job Is worrying ibout the nation's shlpplr,^. Mr. Truman wants the chairman ot the commission alone to have •esponsibllity for Hie commission's nlernal doings, such as employes That will leave the other four commissioners free to concentrate 1 shipping. Take the Post Office Department. Mr. Truman wants the postmaster general to have the full authority over what goes on inside his de- partmenl. He doesn't have it now. For example: Inside the department are the Bureau of Accounts and the Office of Purchasing Agent. Although they're under the postmaster, they were given special powers by Congress. The posdna.-ter can't touch them. So Mr. Truman asks Congress for approval to wEpe out the bur- ea mid the office of purchasing agent and let the postmaster do what he thinks best about the jobs they've been doing. The various plans of Mr. Truman, outlined only very sketchllj here, may not seem world-shaking They're not. But they give a pic ture of how complex and twisted around a lot of the governmen machinery is. Mr. Truman will offer other plan this year, some next year. Puttln the government's house in orde is a long-time Job. The population of New York Oil is greater than that of m countries in Europe. U. of A.
