"The year 1937 was a notable one
for civil service advocates because it
resulted in so many new and signifi-
cant extensions of the merit idea into
areas hitherto the s5ole hunting
ground of political spolismen," as-
serted Prof. James K. Pollock of the
political science department in an
address before the National Municipal
League Thursday in Baltimore.
The adoption of the civil service
system in the state of Michigan, after
a long and arduous legislative battle,;
was one of the most significant trends
of the year in the progress of the
movement, Professor Pollock stated.
He added that the success of ,the civil
service in Michigan had been due
principally to the present governor's
efforts in carrying out the adminis-
trative program of his predecessor in
trained and efficient technicians for
the promulgation of the program was
a great one, he stated. He warned
that "if existing personnel agencies
do not have the staff with which to
tackle their present day problems,
where are we going to be in another
year with a vast federal program
under way and with new programs
being lauiched all over the country?"
