Political Patronage Dispensers Will Soon Find "'Pickins" Slim Two-Thirds of State's Payroll Coming Under Civil Service. LAWS PROTECT MANY EMPLOYES By DICK SHANER I. N. S. Staff Correspondent. HARRISBURG, Feb. 23.--Dispensers of political patronage in Pennsylvania will ilnd the pickings a lot slimmer within the next few months. By the end of this summer somewhere around two-thirds of the state's payroll will be protected by some form of civil service or merit system as civil service provisions o f ' new laws become operative. At present, the state has more than 20,000 employes listed on its roster. It was estimated that approximately 13,000 of these workers would soon be under the merit system protection, including 3,000 liquor control board employes, 5,000 public assistance department employes and a similar number in the new unemployment compensation and employment service. And, with 13,000 workers protected by some form of civil service or merit system, the state will have more employes in protected jobs than in jobs that can be filled by political patronage. Responsible for the large increase in protected Jobs was legislation sponsored by Governor George H. Earlc and his administration, the Unemployment , Compensation Act ind the consolidated assistance law. Previously, a merit system supported ay Governor Gilford Pmchot had protected liquor board employes and federal requirement protected federal-state employment service workers. January I, three unemployment service jobs ceased to be fields of political patronage. March 1, civil service provisions become operative to the public assistance department. Secretary ot Labor and Industry Ralph M. Bashorc said he was filling positions in the unemployment service from civil service examinations conducted last December. He inferred the jobs would be filled as rapidly as possible. How many o£ the present employe 1 ; will lose their jobs was a matter of conjecture but it was believed that most of the political appointees would be replaced. On "March 1 when the assistance department begins functioning under civil service, positions will be filled from a list of eligible candidates who passed examinations conducted by the employment board of the department a few months ago. Most of the assistance employes will be hired by the county boards of assistance. In other divisions of the state government, employes arc chosen by competitive examinations although not protected by civil service. The state motor police force--the recently merged units of the state police and state highway patrol--has been recruiting the new members by physician examination and mental tests. In the fish and game department, an executive order forbade pol'tical appointees there. Governor George II. Earlc, shortly after he took office, exempted the commission em- ployes from political patronage because they are specially trained for their duties. Where North and West.
