Rowat Contrasts Governments


American and Canadian meth-
ods of public administration have
much to offer each other even
though the basic systems may ap-
pea- to be quite different, Prof.
Donald Rowat said Thursday.
Prof. Rowat, of the political sci-
ence department of Carleton Uni-
versity in Ottowa, spoke on
"American and British Influence
on Canadian Public Administra-
He said that the parliamentary,
system of Canada provided the
basic difference between govern-

ments when viewed with the sep-
aration of powers doctrine in
American government. This doc-
trine, which Prof. Rowat said from
the Canadian point of view vio-
lates the "unity of command"
rule, leads to a series of other
differences in administration be-
tween Canada and the United
Merit System
"In Canada, the merit system
goes up to the top," Prof. Rowat
said. Although lower levels of ad-
ministration in the United States

"and then came back to make
fantastic records after spend-
ing the war in the services."
Looking back at students and
student activities, he says, "I
think students should have an
opportunity to play a large
role in student affairs, al-
though there are some things
student government just can't
"When the auto ban was in
effect, students were supposed
to handle violations themselves,
but they just couldn't do it.
"Students had a share in
managing their own affairs
through the committee on stu-
dent affairs. I served on it (be-
fore his appointment as presi-
dent), and students had quite
a bit to say."
TURNMNG to student politi-
cal activity he notes, "students
are much more interested in
politics today than they used
to be. They're much better in-
Noting the Red scares of the
post-War period; he comments,
"After the War, I had a study
done by a government agency
and they found only four or
five Communist students on
campus. Most of them were ex-
pelled at one time or another,
but not because of their politi-
cal bel iefs; we always made
clear that that was their per-
sonal business.
"They had to leave because
they constantly insisted on
breaking other rules -- like
bringing liquor into the resi-
dence halls -- and we didn't

feel that they were entitled to
any special consideration."
Turning to a lighter subject,
President Ruthven recalls his-
tory's first panty raid in 1949.
"It started out as a pep rally
and then got out of hand," he
The students eventually
wound up milling around the
President's home. Coming to
the steps, President Ruthven
reportedly told them:
"I'll see you in the stadium
for a Michigan game but not
standing around in the streets
of Ann Arbor."
This so disconcerted the
crowd that it stopped - tem-
porarily. When the crowd again
became riotous, the State Po-
lice were called in. They broke
it up - with tear gas bombs.
But the precedent was set,
and it has yet to be abandoned.
As the century passed the
halfway mark. President Ruth-
ven announced his plans for re-
tirement. But he gave the Re-
gents fair warning, and they
set about hunting a replace-
ment. Many candidates were
considered, but at last they
settled upon their choice.
He was a vice-president at
Ohio State University, a pro-
fessor of English and a novel-
ist, and he came to take over
after 22 years under the re-
spected zoologist.
President Ruthven retired to
a small farm on the outskirts
of the city to write his mem-
oires (which will soon be pub-
lished) and Harlan Henthorne
Hatcher took the reins of the

are on civil service, those near the
top are usually political appoint-
This Civil Service system pro-
duces a more powerful agency. In
Canada, it determines the rate of
pay, promotions, and controls all
affairs of the civil service program.
This trend toward centralization
in Canadian government continues
in other agencies as well. There is
a Comptroller of the Treasury who
reports to the Cabinet pre-audits.
He is not an officer of the Cabin-
et, like the Secretary of the Trea-
sury in the United States.
The Canadian Auditor-General
makes the post-audit, reporting
whether the budget has been spent
as previously decided. This ar-
rangement makes for more cen-
tralization of control of the
The results of this greater cen-
tralization are shown in less pres-
sure group influence on the ad-
ministration. Because of the per-
manence of Civil Service positions,
they are not as open to political
Servant Silent
In Canada, the civil servant does
not speak out, does not voice his
opinion in political matters. This
"anonymity" of the Canadian civil
servant has both advantages and
disadvantages, Professor Rowat
While it makes for a more
smoothly-running administration,
it also tends toward secrecy in the
Because of common problems
and philosophies, Canadian and
U.S. governmental administrations
also have much in common, Prof.
Rowat stressed. Both countries are
concerned with intergovernmental)
relations between the federal gov-
ernment and the provincial and
state governments, respectively.
Share Disaster
The Americans and the Cana-
dians share a distaste for the con-
cepts of the "administrative class,"
as in Great Britain, the National
School of Administration, as in
France; or a system of uniform le-
gal training for public adminis-
Canadians believe a uniform
education destroys the cross-sec-
tion of people in public adminis-
tration. Both Canada and the
United States believe that civil
servants should not represent any
political party.

Italy Cites
The Italian government yester-
day honored President Harlan
Hatcher and five faculty members
at a ceremony.
President Hatcher and Prof.
Howard M. Ehrmann of the his-
tory department were awarded
the Italian Star of Solidarity First
Class. University Secretary Erich
A. Walter; Prof. George Kish of
the geography department; Prof.

in appreciation of the University's

Italian Unification last year. The
University sponsored broadcasts
and lectures on the history and
culture of Italy.
Prof. Ehrmann headed the com-
mittee which arranged these
events, and Profs. Ehrmann, Kish
and Eisenberg have been active
for a long time in the studies of

have both held Fulbright research
grants for work there. Prof. Eis-
enberg has received the Guggen-
heim fellowship for his study of
15th century painting.
