6 (Sfltesbura Raaisfer*Mail. Qalesbura, ill, Thursday, July 11, 1963 HOSPITAL NOTES U. S. Embassy Employes Are Industrious But Lack Work By BUN F. MEYER WASHINGTON (AP)-Look Into iny U.S, embassy in the world, nxcept perhaps in areas M Africa Where things are not too comfortable, and what do you see? Attaches, administrators, reha- bilitators, military men, information specialists and men tying up loose ends—"far too many people." This, at least, is the way things *eem to Ellis 0. Briggs, 63, who has set Washington abuzz with his observations about the diplomatic missions he served for 37 years. He expressed his views in an Interview, and also in testimony to a Senate subcommittee on national security staffing and operations, headed by Sen. Henry M. Jackson, D-Wash. Many embassies, Briggs says, could do with half or less of their staffs. In nearly every case the people are loyal, conscientious and hard working. "It's just that there are far too mahy of them," Briggs says. "They clutter up the premises." Briggs added that about 30 per cent-of the over-staffed embassies are headed by political ap pointees as "inexperienced in dip lomacy as in directing an army corps, a fleet of warships or an air force." Most Cabinet departments—especially Defense, Commerce, Treasury, Agriculture and Justice •—have people in the embassies, and so do other agencies "all the way from one end of the alphabet to the other," he said. The average U.S. embassy, Briggs says, is grossly overstaffed, particularly by agencies other than the State Department. State Department officials shied away from any direct answer to Briggs' comments. They did say Foreign Service personnel were not sent abroad unless it was felt they were necessary. Briggs declined to name embassies he considers overstaffed, but implied such a list would be quite long. Africa, he said, has not seen the big influx of personnel because some posts are not In comfortable climates. "But I am absolutely sure that the seven embassies where I served as ambassador, and some others I know about, have about twice as many people as they need." Briggs said the United States should quit "playing musical chairs" by shunting around its ambassadors. "Today there is only one American ambassador in the entire world (Howard Jones, ambassa­ dor to Indonesia) who has been at his post for as long as five years. The average, the last time I looked it up, was less than a year and a half." One way to cut down embassy staffs,, he said, is for staffs of foreign aid missions to pull out when projects are finished. • "When you terminate a program you don't automatically get rid of the Indians," he said "Some try to remain indefinitely, tying up loose ends, as they explain it to you."
