Urge Reform in Personnel Management Washington, (U.R) — A Hoover commission "task force" has urged that the chairman of the civil service commission also be made the "personnel administrator" for the executive branch of government. The recommendation, it was disclosed Monday, tops several basic reforms which the commission's committee on personnel policy feels will go a long way toward making government service a real career for the individual instead of just another job.-The report has not been made public. . It says the government's career service has been badly disorganized by the war, that the prestige of federal employment is alarmingly low, and that the presen personnel turnover is a detriment' ,o the service. As one of several remedies, the report proposes that the chief of :he civil service commission be a right hand man of the president on all matters regarding federal workers. He, like the personnel manager hi many private industries, would be a policy man as well as an administrator. To keep good men and women in government service, the report recommends that the ceiling for top civil service grades be raised to $15,000 a year. Present ceiling is $10,300. It says "board on compensations and . awards" should be established to keep all government salaries "under continuing review."
