Consolidation Necessary "No private business and no other government would tolerate the division of its construction work into over 20 authorities in 12-dlfferent departments and establishments, as Is the case of our government. It is only by consolidation that duplication and waste of n multitude of offices and officials can toe eliminated: . . . "No other government and no godd government would tolerate merchant marine activities separated over seven departments or Independent establishments. The.same can be said as to public health, education, land Aillllza- tlon, etc. Altogether I have directed that 68 boards, commissions and bureaus should be consolidated into nine divisions. Must Keep Hands Off "There are, still others to be consolidated. Many regulatory functions now In the departments should be transferred to the federal trade and other 'regulating commissions. ;The financial and economic functions relating to agriculture should be consolidated. The major departments should be changed. "Either Congress musfc keep Its hands off now' or they must give to my successor much larger powers of Independent action than given to any President If there is ever to be reorganization. "And that authority to be effective should be free of tho limitations in the law passed last year which gives Congress the veto power, which prevents the abolition of functions, which prevents the rearrangement of major departments. Otherwise It will, as is now being demonstrated in the present law, again be merely make believe."
