MASON CITY GLOBE GAZETTE MARCH 9 138 MORE IOWANS IN FEDERAL JOBS DURING 2 YEARS Even With Increase State Remains Below Its [ Quota. 1 By RADFORD E. I Staff Correspondent. WASHINGTON, March 9--Tha number of lowans In the- federal civil service Increased by 138 between 1928 and 1930, It was learned today from Senator C. C. Dill, Washington; at whose request the civil service commission has completed a study of the state allocations of employes in the service. At the end of the fiscal year last June there were 768 lowans in the service. This compares with a total of 630 on the same date in 1928. The remarkable rate of increase in Ihe number of lowans in the service 5s more clearly demonstrated, however, by a comparison with the figures for ,'1917. At that time, in April, there" were but 302 men and women from- Iowa on the federal payroll. Below Its Quota. Even with this increase, however, the state remains ; well below its i quota of workers in government service. The,|state, on a basis .of population, is entitled to 848 places in the civU service register. ; Since the number of government workers more than keeps pace with the increased population of the country-as a whole, Iowa, despite a continual gfowth, over a period of years, in the number actually in the service, has never had its full share. . This is.a clear violation of- the law under which the civil service was established, but there appears to be nothing that anyone can do about the matter. The commission itself ia constantly attempting to obtain employes from those states which are under quota. . . . " ' ' . : Exceed Allocation. The pfstrict of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia .are far above their allotments but they 'are the . only-units which have exceeded the allocation. This is obviously for geographical reasons. , . .In the absence of duly qualified candidates from other states in sufficient number to fill the quotas, the commission is thus forced to void the law or" to see parts of the government blocked from operation for lack of workers. . HERE LIES A MAN This simple wooden board marks the final res ting place In .Arlington national cemetery, of William Howard Taft, former president and former chief jus-, tlce of the United States. The modest marker with its simple epitaph conforms with the unpretentious · nature of the man Who lies beneath.
