proposal is that a more definit ef-
fort is not being made to put the
federal personnel work into the De-
partment of the Treasury. In the
past the Commission has suffered, be-
cause it has lacked prestige to back
it uP. and because it had a difficult
time getting approriations. Moving
the department into the Treasury
would remedy these defects I believe,"
Professor Benson said.
The ideal set-un would be to havr
the exitna commission headed h
one Pan reonsihle directly to the
SAovetarv of the Treasurv-or po-
sibly to the President, as the director
of the budget is now, he suggested.
The reorganization of administra-.
tive agencies is a tak which in gen-
eral only the President is able to
carry out. he continued. for experi-
ence has shown that particular clien-
teles have friends in Congress who
have opposed suggested changes. The
7tuvision that changes in administra-
tive agencies may be rejected by
Congress within 60 days, as contained
in the bill passed by the Senate yes-
terdav. seems like a sufficient safe-
guard, he said.
Also, vWhile the President may abol-
ish an agency, he can not abolish a
function, Professor Benson said. Fur-
thermore, a positive check is put on
the President in his reorganization
plans by Congress' power to regulate
As to the Welfare reorganization,
Professor Benson believes that con-
solidatian into one' department is
necessary. He cited a study made by
Prof. E. P. Herring of Harvard show-
ing that different social welfare
agencies had been put into bureaus
opposed to the interests of the agen-
cies and had suffered as a result. One
of these examples, he continued, is
the food and drug bureau placed
in the Department of Agriculture.
Opposition to appointing six as-
sistants to the President has centered
chiefly around the charge that the
assistants would work under cover
because of their anonymity. The
anonymity clause was inserted to pre-
vent these offices from becoming
plhms for politicians, Professor Ben-
sou said.
"It is absurd to suppose that their
work must all be secret, for the re-
suits of their investigations would
appear in the decisions of the Pres-
ident," he explained.
"The howl that has been set up
against reorganization makes me
feel that protests are largely efforts tc
gain publicity and prestige for the
com:ng election, and these protest
do rot savor of the recognition of
th., needs of the federal government,"
he sidc[.
I Tenture to predict that if this bill
is not passed by the present Demo-
cratic administration that most of its
fuatures will eventually be passed b
some Republican administration.

"we have turned a corner toward improvement-so much so that I think
the market is a buy." He also predicted trend toward conservatism in
federal government.
