Training May Produce Better Civil Service One of the (iiuitnl American beliefs is that il lakes specific nnd supervised tiaiiiini/ to be a barber or » plumber, but- thai anyone :tt nil who can fret » certain nuiiiber of votes or wangle an appointment is eompelcnl to ndmin- isler the HlVnirs of a great city or run a terlei'iil or stnte Kovcrnmont bureau. Wl)ile there have been occasional cries for better-trained public servants, il has been like the weather—nobody really did anything about it. Now a beginning is being made toward doing something about it. Harvard for some years has hud a valuable school of business administration. Originally it had been intended as a school., of political'science and administration. Now, under Harvard's new President Conant, this school is .being turned into a school of "public and private business." , * * 9 U is planned to oiler in the new school a thorough training not only for young men who enter private business, but also for those who aim to devote their energies to the sort of great public enterprises Dial are beginning to grow in importance, projects such as the Tennessee Valley Authority, and public bodies such as the Federal Trade Commission, Securities and. Exchange Commission, and a dozen others. Dean Wallace Brett Donham. who has ably presided over : . the school, while it was-training promising yoimjj men foi private business, is. thoroughly in sympathy with the i:!«a that important public business requires just as thorough training. "It is impossible to improvise a h'rst- class civil service," he points out, and cites the two examples of the World War and the •present crisis, when it was necessary to build great public organizations quickly, and many a man put in an important position proved inadequately trained and incompetent. * * » As more am! more functions become public (and quite regardless of your opimt-n • of'that tendency, it's there) the need for - competent, well-trained men to fill 'those posts will increase. Several schools for training diplomatic and consular service men already oxist. are several'city, managers in BLxTHi3VILLE (ABE,)' COUHIEB NEWS the-country who have mncle that a life work, moving up from small cities In which they have been successful to larger ones, Why not?

Help For History 'f'he new national Archives liuild- '"K iu Washington is going to be the word j,i pi-e.scrving the records of the republic. It will even include eight fireproof vaults for .storing motion picture films, sound recordings of news events, and speeches' by high officials. Things are bfiittg m . r le easier for the future historians all the time. What would we not give today for a •sound. liJm of Patrick Henry's great "Treason" speech before the Virginia Jlouse of Burgesses? Or of Washing- Ion's first inaugural address? Or of Kitunl Lincoln speaking those few im- morlal lines on the Held of Gettysburg?

I'erihai.s all thci K^cnl consumer Agitation has'had nn efl'oct after all I'or H.S- H result of .years of experiments on silk slocltiiigs, the bureau has learned a great deal about them, ami offers the information directly to 'consumers in a pamphlet which 'may be had from the Government Printing Office >it 5 cents. l''or instance, two tcnspoonsfiil of aluminum sulphate dissolved in half a pint of hot water have been found pod for new stockings. Soak, dry, nnd then wash gently. Washing new stockings before wearing usually adds to the wear. And so on. AH of which is just an indication of how valuable the Bureau of Standards could be to the people as consumers if it were used more generally in that direct service, and its information made more easily available to those of . ns who buy and use things.
