For several-months, there have been two directors ' In every bureau of the I^clional 'Government, and two officials in many oUier important ix>s£s as 'well. One of these was an American officer. The other Is a Korean. Now, In rnimy of the bureaus, the Americans arc acting in a purely advisory capacity, while the Korean administrators arc doing 'all the actual work. Gen. Hodge explained American aims: in Korea early this year. He compared the Korean government to 1 aj pyramid. The Americans, he said,^ are'-'attempting to build that pyramid'-front''-the bottom laying a firm -foundation in civil service administration so that when the Proyisioiial' and''later the independent.- government <s formed, the top ? government heads can be placed q'u the pyramid without dislc/dging any of the stones.
