M. 1MI The Nation \Knotc America JAMES XAXLOW June 30 FMtMent Thomas E. *ays, there'll b* the "finest A. Whe«l«r. New Yo*-k lawyer, congressman. Vice President under Hayes, born at Malone. X. Y.

This may give the impression that i the praent swarm of people work- j inc. for the government would be fired. That hardly seem* likely. Y«u can M* why from this: He could use the broom only in the executive branch of the gov-| emrceat. j The people working in the other j two branches--judicial and legislative--are practically by any President For example, take the judicial branch-- pioneer, banker, governor and j diplomat, born in Winterport, Maine. Di-d July 21. 18SML years ago 1 Edward Bur- designer of cup-winning yachts and an entomologist of note, born in Sandwich, Mass. Died July 12. 1591. 1855--William B Caperton. admiral- commander-in-chief of the Pacific fleet ia World War I. born at Spring Hill. Tenn. Died Dec. , Zl, 1941- untouchable 1S60 _ Edward fuller. Philadelphia newspaper editor and author, born in Syracuse. X. Y. Died April 29. 1938 There are about 275 U. S judges · 1568--Mabel Cratty New York so- of all kinds and about 3.000 people j cial ^ ortter ^ known as the ·working under them, luce court · -statesman o f the Y. W. C A clerks. Almost everyone of the judges now sitting' OB a bench has been appointed for life by President Truman or some previous President So they're safe. And the court employes have alzaoct all been appointed by the judges, and they're beyond the presidential touch. So Dewey as President would really b« able to do only one th'ng in the judicial branch: Appoint new fudges as vacancies'occurred. Now take the legislative branch- Congress--without counting the members of the House and the Sen- bom at Bellaire, Ohio. Died Feb 27, 1920. Today la Riatory 1783--The Continental Congress, driven from Philadelphia by a mob of mutinous and half-drunken soldiers, meets at Princeton, N. J. 1815--Historic treaty with Algiers-the Algerians renouncing claims to tribute they had demanded from the United States. 1834--Indiana Territory established by Act of Congress. 1902--The U. S. Army adopts the olive drab uniform. ·tors, all of whom are elected by j 1905--25-year-old Albert Einstein, the people--has about 4.000 em- ployes. They include stenographers, clerks, secretaries, and others. The members" of Congress hire them and the President, unless there are a couple of minor exceptions, has nothing to do with hiring or firing them. That leaves only the people in the executive branch of the government--various departments and agencies--for Dewey to work on. They number 2.048.000 everywhere: In Washington, the rest of the country and overseas. -Of that total 92 per cent, or 1.884.160. are Civil Service employes The rest. 163.840. are non-Civil Service and have been appointed to jobs. It's on that second group--the non-Civil Service people--that Dewey could do most of his broom- work. But take the Civil Service workers first They are people who have taken competitive examinations for their jobs and are making a career of ·working for the government. They include bureau heads, clerks, stenographers, and so on. They can be fired for only two ressons: 1. If they've done something j ago. ·wrong. Prof 2. If their jobs,are wiped out. Dewey could sweep them out the Swiss student, writes first essay on what was to become the Theory of Relativity. 1906--The Pure Food and Drugs Act enacted by Congress. 1919--Prohibition in effect at midnight 1930--The fiscal year ends with the budget balanced--for the last time. 1941--President Roosevelt dedicates the Franklin D. Roosevelt Library. Hyde Park. N Y. 1942--The Civilian Conservation Corps abolished. 1943--Deliveries of New York City newspaper halted by mass "illness" among the deliverers. 194C--Fourth atom bomb dropped in Bikini experiment. 1947--President Truman signs the modified rent control bill as the "lesser of two evils."

Congress could reduce the number of its employes or cancel out their jobs altogether. But stilL this can't be done with too many agencies. Now take those other 163.840 non-Civil Service people who have been appointed to their jobs or accepted them without Civil Service examination. Right off the bat Dewey would be sure to replace the heads of the big departments, like Secretary of of St Paul. Minn . former assistant administrator of the Federal Works Agenc3 r . born Harnman.

Catoctin house has had some very famous neighbors in recent years. As it has drowsed jbehiad thickets of honeysuckle and g-ant weeds. President Roosevelt. Winston Churchill, the ihen General George C. Marshall, and others of the war great sped by-u en route to Shangri-La, only a few miles distant by mountain path. President Truman has shared his predecessor's delight :n the Catoctin mountain camp and has used it a: a secluded holiday spot. Natives wonder if the chief executive ever has rsoticed the impressive old house and whether h's feeling for history is affronted by the decay of property under Federal ownership. When the Catoctin area work was undertaken in 1935. Dr L. C. Gray, director of the Division of Land Utilization, said. "We look i upon the Catoctin project as am excellent illustration of how ooor- j ly used lands can be developed to 1 great public advantage." While ' applauding that sentiment and appreciating the conversion of depleted, waste lands to national park use. the countryside questions the wisdom of abandoning a house of eiigcity aad charm, so closely linked to the industrial history of the ares. Several months ago a sroup of Frederick iren went 10 Washington and with Congressman J. Glenn Seall conferred with Conrad L. \V:rth and other National Park Service officials to urge restoration of the house. Representing this c:tv. Ru?;^'J H. McCain. Charles S. Lane. HI." Charles McC.

"To 5x up the house would take as niuch as we have to spend in the whole area in three or four years " The Catoctin Area v/ith 10.000 acres and 133 buildings to be maintained, this year has 3. Ssca! budget of S10.000. a sum that :n its entirety would be an insignificant beginning in an un- dertaking like icstorinf Catoeiiii house. There has been;talk of giving the house to the Stt -te of Maryland «· but the Federal government is reluctant to mcTjfde in the donation any appreciable acreage, a condition the Fres State refuses to j accept. j Even aequisitio..i by a wealthy antiquarian wiUir.s to spend the "mint of money" to restore an oSd || house seems bey«nd the realm of " possibility for Cs tocUn house be| cause sale of res d estate by th* ' Federal governrru ^nt to a private , o\\ ner must be an thorized by special act of Congrei^s and is a ponderous intertnins) ile matter. So it seems thi weeds and the 'brambles will have their way un' disputed and in a few more years then will cover ib e heap of rubble that was Catoctin. house. \ The stairway which stretches up to the nttsc still is sound and sturdy, despite missing bannisters and accumulated trash. Note the broken window sashes, the basement door denuded of hardware, and the length of pipe once part of a water system with an attic tank for rainwater. DR.
