A report of the Senate Committee •n Government Operations summarized notion taken by the last wo Congresses on recommcnda- lons of the Commission on Government Reorganization set up under the chairmanship of former President Herbert Hoover. The Senate commUtcc said the loovor Commission mndc 281 specific recommendations, adding that I an estimated 00 per cent of these | 'have been lully considered and . lave received diced action by the Congress or 1 Us committees"— either favorable or unfavorable. Still remaining are 23 recommendations "which will require further action by the Congress It adequate consideration Is to an given la them," the report said. The committee report, submitted by Chnlrmnii McC'lellnti (u-Ark), took sharp exception to what It called "extravagant claims.of tremendous monetary savings" that would be brought about by adoption of the commission's proposals for streamlining the executive branch of the government. The committee said It had been unnble to find any sound basis for some of these claims, which It Bald have varied "from an ultra-conservative figure of a few million to as rtiuch as 10 billions of dollars In annual savings." "Even If nil the Hoover Commission's recommendations had been found to be of practical application, these estimates are not bused on. facts and are grossly unfair to the Congress," the report added. Turning directly to the Citizens Committee for the Hoover Report, the Senate committee snld this group had failed to offer "any support for Its claim that eventual annual savings would aggregate four billion dollars.' The senators also disputed n statement attributed to the citizens substantiate its claims that savings of 800 million In the military and more than 400 million in other reorganizations were related to upe-1 clfie Hoover Commission recom- j inundations," the Senate report said. .
