(.T)--A '., section of the summary of the re." port of the Broolungs Institution, whose recommendations were made 'l public recently, follows in this article, the fourteenth and last ot . a series: State and local administrative organization. Administrative struc- ,\ ; ture is not the most important i' problem oE organization. The more V,vital problems have- to do with the ^allocation of functions, with powers ',r.nd duties, with administrative Areas, with financing and with pcr- ,ionnel. In chapter XXVIII of the te'eport, the conclusions reached in (\\cti functional study, relative to «i organization, are summarized in %'tline form and their general sig- Mucauce and effect are pointed li At present, Iowa lias about 33 ia.ior state administrative agon- es and about 32 minor ones. Iowa not suffering at present from an .streme multiplication of adminis- rative agencies. It has too m a n y ; ut, compared with some other tates, has exhibited in this respect elf-restraint and the ability to rec- ify errors. The survey proposes to reduce the number of major organization units immediately to 25 and eventually to 23. The number of minor agencies will be reduced about one-half. In local administration, only two separate units should eventually be left: The board o£ supervisors and the county board ot education. It is proposed that the school district should immediately, nnd the township should eventually be eliminated. Would Slake 1'rogress. The proposed organization, as a whole, is believed to represent on the whole a correct grouping of and differentiation among functions. It ·will if adopted, make definite process- toward the integration ol state and local administration. It will simplify administrative areas. It will make the operations of government understandable to t he people It will shorten the ballot and reduce the number of elections It permits progress and adaption wlthbut accepting complete tralization of power on the one li or administrative disintegration on the other. , _ .

In addition, some means must he devised to focus the intelligence ot the state on public problems and place the results o£ planned, practical, nnd opportune study at the disposition of the legislature. Plannins Council Nf.cessarj. An organized research nnl " ninff council seems necessa counteract the forces of disrn--., tion, to overcome the lag between social and administrative change to co-ordinate demands for publicCer- vices, to eliminate the waste occa- «loned by intermittent and transitory surveys and investigations, to formulate in terms of n program the accepted recommendations of present survey, to adjust the administrative machine to new stresses end strains, and to bridge the gap that exists between the legislature on the one hand and the admmis- trativc officials and higher institu-1 lions of learning on the other. It is suggested, therefore, that a , commonwealth council be c r e a t e d , ] to consist of public spirited citizens, in part chosen from and by the general assembly, and In part by the governor, with the function of f.d- vising- research agencies acquainting them with the more urgent needs of the state, and offering to the governor and the legislature a periodically revised program of administrative readjustment.
