Texas, and West Virginia Roads Group Makes Change Personnel Shifts Made To Make Use Of Those Skilled CHARLESTON, W. Va. W-The State Road Commission began today a widespread 'administrative reorganization which eventuallj will include a new accounting system. Commissioner Burl A. Sawyers said that a reshuffling of experienced personnel into new positions in an effort to make the mosl of available engineering skill was ilfective today. Installation of the accounting system, making liberal use ol modern punch-card records. \vil; take an estimated six to 12 months. Sawyers said any personnel reductions would stem from a "slow, orderly process." In one major change, George W. McAlpin was named to a new post of assistant chief engineer to serve under Chief Engineer M. L. O'Neale. McAlpin was replaced as late construction engineer by Wilson Ward, who has been a regional construction engineer at Clarksburg. L. C. Madden will head a new surveys and plans'office which will function as a separate division responsible to the chief engineer. The reorganization also calls for a'"director of personnel," but that 'will be vacant for the time seing. Sawyers' administrative assistant, Vincent Johnkoski, is set ting up a new personnel records and personnel classification system, however. Another feature of 'the reorganization will be a centralized payroll, a-step expected to eliminate much of the clerical work now done under an arrangement in which districts and divisions handle their own payrolls. The road commissioner said the reorganization was being carried out at the -request of Gov. Mar-, land. Mrs. Dessie W. Va.

The 'study committee said it did not believe representatives of other state departments should be members of the commission, nor does it believe specific advisory committees from other state agencies should be established by the commission, but, it said, it does recommend' the commission have authority to establish advisory groups representing industry, agriculture, labor, seafood interests, railroads and other forms of transportation and .utilities;.'.'recreation and any other economic--field concerning which it may want advice. Other state agencies should be directed to comply with reasonable requests for- information or cooperation. $92.500'First'Year It was suggested from $75,000 tn ?100,000 be provided for the State Department of Economic Development in the budget.
