WHAT O (By BEUNICE liARRELL CHIPMAN) Buroaurracy has become one of tlio major Jssues of tiie political campaign. Sornft weens apo this column discussed the number of go vorn mental hiircvius and com- mispions as they liave increased during the recent years. Anyone \vlio would like to pursue this subject further, will be interested in "The Bureaucrat," by John H. Criik-r, "a natural history of the bureaucrat, his habitat, feeding habits, protective coloration, fertility, and ubiquitous activities. 11 From this nub-title by the author, it la evident that the question IH approached by him with a Jitfht touch. This is no deep research into the phenomenon of buroaucnu'y, nor la it intended as such. Mr. Cridc-r in a political reporter and analyst for the "Xew York Times,'• and au expert in governmental administration, and has had, through his experience as a newspaperman, ample opportunity to know and study ut first hand the strange genus that hns overrun our country, the strange plague that lias eaten into our democratic structure. Defies Involution Says Mr. CYider: "The biological tsjMvirn, known as bureaucrat, defies the law of evolution. He is imich the same today, enthroned in the classical grandeur of a Constitution Avenue office building, as was his prototype in the originals of such architecture in Komc. Athens or Corinth. In fact, the species dates from those early days of history, when local governments bt.'cjnne .sufficiently wUibill/ed to develop an export who thought he knew more about how the thing ran than those for whom i I wa s r it n, and c vr ry w 1J ere, i n -icni writingw is found examples this spcciiiu-n which has multiplied .so rapidly in the past century." Decline and Decay Komo had Us strangling bureaucracy, and Sparta. The Jewish religion was controlled by bureaucrats, tlic scribes and Pharisees, whom Christ so roundly rebuked. Bureaucracy reached au all-time liiKh in Prussia from 17:'0 to 1808, and in France at the time of the. expulsion of Louis 1'hillipe, there were itnuble the number of civil functionaries as of men in the armed forces. So it appears that bureaucracy, us it has developed In the United States, is no new thing. But it is an ominous thing, since history demonstrates that it is the forerunner of decline and decay. "Bureaucracy is the graying of the hair of government administration, the hardening of its arteries—a block of impenetrable liaxe between the governors and the governed, which in a dpmocracy, makes representative government a mockery." And why is this? Because the bureaucrat worships form rather than substance, cares for records more than for right, and considers precedents before people. History shows that ns a central government grows bigger and bigger, providing more and more services for the people, more and more regulation to protect the people, U Tim Jumper cruze luis no limit Ihene .\s!

As for his habits, "Tho bureaucrat Is distinguished from the true public by his authoritarian manner, his proficiency at soldiering on the Job to wait out his retirement age, his constant entanglement in red tape and his general disregard for econ- onvy. Indeed, to the true bureau crat, public service becomes merely an object of exploitation, and if you fail to find him in any other way, you can surely spot the bureaucrat us the fellow who ul- wnys knows what is best for you and me." His Habitat The natural habitat of the bureaucrat is in Washington. D. C., Ihe great meeting place of the breed, a war-swollen city which Mr. Crider describes most entertainingly, In all its sprawling congestion. Here are 250,000 of the species, while another two and throe-quarter million civilians ransro afaj*, and are now on the public payroll throughout this country and In f irons abroad. Strong' wings they have for wide flight, supported by the currents of federal funds. The protective coloring 1 nf the hutvuiKTat consists of Civil Service which make it hard lo fire an employe, pensions*, disability compensation, and strong union organizations among puhlle officials, established to protect jobs and tenures. His fortuity is unlimited, as one agency bogots another and ho propagates best during times of emergency. "So it is that the smart politician, seeking to spread the bureaucratic domain, will do his utmost to convince the public that conditions are sufficiently serious to warrant e-.nergeney action. The past 11 years constitute fine of the longest emergencies in the nation's history — the depression, poor relief, made relief, and now the war — and the result, more Uian l!4l)0 bureaus.' 1 (iullivcr and The larger purt of Mr. Cruler's hook concerns itself with the ubiquitous activities of the bureaucrat, as he has wormed himself into every cranny of the country's life, and whom we must ever remember is appointed— not elected — owing no allegiance save to the appointing power which ho must retain on high if he is to keep his job. Three million votes are a lot of votes out of our voting population, votes that will desire to maintain the status quo, in order that these bureaucrats may continue to draw a federal paycheck and to regulate the lives of those whose taxes must continue, to support them. These bureaucratic activities may shock you, or disturb you, or you — or perhaps all throe. after reading Mr. Cvulev's book, you will be conscious as never before, of the giant web that is being woven about UK — that in the end — unless we waken to our danger, will hold us in perpetual bondage, aiujUier Gulliver defeated by pygmies.
