P ick Your,
IN SPITE of the frequent brilliant praises
aimed at the structure and workings of
civil service in the United States there is
virtually no real civil service in the national
government at the present time, and there
has been none for many years.
The present system was inaugurated so
that government workers, regardless of
party preferences or political neutrality,
could work up as far as major policy-
making positions in government on a ca-
reer basis, learning well a specialized field,
and carrying out Administration policies
in an unbiased manner. In return, they
would be guaranteed a high degree of se-
curity in their positions.
Actually such a system has not been In
effect under any recent Administration, al-
though the present Republican policy has
been more openly in violation of civil ser-
vice ideals than was the previous Adminis-
Even under Democrats, ho\vever, many ap-
pointments to the service were of a very po-
litical nature. There are more than iso-
lated cases, where an applicant for a non-
policy making position was forced to register
as a Democrat in his home town or to get
party certification from his local precinct
captain before he could obtain a job under
the so-called "career" system. And Eisen-
hower's recent decree that a special post
shall be created in every major government
department or commission tq locate vacant
posts and fill them with deserving party
members was not unknown under Demo-
crats. Then, however, it was often someone
filling a highly-paid "regular" post who
performed the function of finding and dis-
tributing "political plums" that were ac-
tually jobs within the civil service and not
President Eisenhower has not only re-
fused to strengthen the civil service idea
by correcting past policies, but has con-
tinued the former policies and has re-
moved all feeling of security from every
civil service worker. Out of power for 20
years, the Republicans seem to eye every
civil service position as a place for a de-
serving Republican precinct worker. In
addition to the handicaps of, continual,
often blunderbuss-style, Congressional in-
vestigations and pay far below that found
in private business, government workers
now are labelled "security risks" for every
actual or potential minor misdemeanor.
The open appointment of a political job-
finder in every department has brought home
to even the lowest-paid level of civil ser-
vice personnel, however, just how insecure
their present jobs are.
Some advantages no doubt can be found
in such an appointment. A bureau or divi-
sion chief who is friendly with the job-
finder can often secure the appointment of
a person whom he knows as capable and
wants in his office, and he can also weed out
the do-nothings that inevitably creep into
any office, whether it be in government or
It is doubtful if any such political job-
seeking methods, however, can eradicate
the age-old problem of getting the best
people into government and getting them
to stay in a government post rather than
using it only as a stepping stone to a
highly-paid private position.
If the Administration and the public pre-
fer an open spoils system into civil service,
that fact might as well be admitted and the
entire civil service system be replaced in
favor of another method of government hir-
ing and firing. If the civil service ideal is
to be made a fact rather than remain a fic-
tion many new reforms 'will have to be
passed by Congress. In either case, the Pres-
ident should appoint a special commission
of leading officials both in and out of gov-
ernment to re-evaluate the Present mudder
situation with an aim of presenting a plan,
for an entirely new system of making recom-
mendations which would establish a 'true
The Quest of the Perfect Student
What's Wrong with Him? .. e
I N A UNIVERSITY as large as this one,
there is room for all kinds of people.
There are one-sided geniuses, pleasant-
but-not-too-bright people, shy people, pop-
ular people, healthy people, wealthy peo-
ple, good-looking people, quarrelsome peo-
ple, people we like, people we can't stand,
people we don't care about one way or the
Now the Admissions Office is trying to pick
a small group of these people. Because of
financial limitations on the size of this small
project of the Admissions Office, the peo-
ple they'll pick will be men only.
These men will be picked because they
have intellectual capacity as measured by
grades and tests. They will also have ability
to get along with people, they'll look nice,
and they'll make a nice impression on peo-
ple. And they'll be in top condition physi-
These people will be "successful, all-
around students." The Admissions Office
will then study their high school records
to find out what if anything was unusual
about these people when they were in
If the Admissions Office is successful in
finding characteristics of high school stu-
dents which are associated with later suc-
cess in college, then they will have done
society a big service.
Tremendous numbers of such potential
leaders never get beyond high school. If a
way can be found to pick them out while
they're still in high school and see that they
get to college, a great waste of valuable hu-
man resources will be avoided.
Questions of methodology can be raised
here. But the gathering of empirical evi-
dence on this important subject is cer-
tainly a worthwhile first step in the right
All of which, further, is not to say that
other kinds of people who aren't well-round-
ed and successful in the ways Dr. Feather's
group members are, shouldn't come to the
University. It's a big school-there is room
for all kinds of people, including slobs, gen-
iuses, and supermen. The aim of the study
is just to ultimately increase the number
of one of these desirable types of student.
What's Right with Him? . .
IT'S ABOUT time someone refined the pro-
cess of turning out "well-rounded" in-
dividuals. Dr. Feather deserves every en-
couragement in his scientific endeavors.
University curriculum experts have
found the formula for machine-stamping
"good citizens" and "all-around gradu-
ates" (16 hours of natural science, eight
hours of language, two semesters of phy-
sical education, etc.) To mark such men in
high school will greatly facilitate getting

More intense research should turn up a
method whereby potential "supermen" might
be determined pre-natally. A couple of psy-
choanalysts recently presented a rather in-
teresting paper on how pre-natal experiences
affected some neurotic patients with all kinds
of complexes. With controlled pre-natal con-
ditions-well, it's too exciting to even con-

portance to beauty than do modern
democracies. The individual was under an
obligation to render his body beautiful by
physical exercise; and the community to

with London, 'or perhaps more justly with
Detroit, Liverpool or Marseilles, to realize
how profound was the difference between
the social values of the Athenians and our-

WASHINGTON-The Eisenhower Admin-
istration almost scared the shirt off
big business the other day.
It did so when the Justice Department
showed its teeth on anti-trust prosecu-
tions in a more glowering manner than
Thurman Arnold and Franklin D. Roose-
velt. What it did was bring suit against
Pan American Airways, long considered
the sacred cow if both Republicans and
A few weeks ago Sam Pryor, vice-presi-
dent of Pan American in charge of Wash-
ington lobbying, spoke with confidence about
the Eisenhower Administration.
"Things have changed in Washington,"
he said happily. "We don't have to take all
that guff we used to take. And we're not
going to tolerate it."
Sam had reason to be happy and con-
fident. In the first place, he was long a
member of the Republican National Com-
mittee from Connecticut, a top manager
of Wendell Willkie, and a generous mon-
ey raiser for the Republicans. So even
though his friend and wire-puller for Pan
American, Sen. Owen Brewster of Maine,
had been defeated, Sam had every reason
to expect well of the Eisenhowerites.
He knew that, back in the Hoover Ad-
ministration, Pan American had been able
to get Postmaster General Brown to send
an amazing and unprecedented instruction
to the State Deparment asking that "all
practical assistance be given to the Pan Am-
erican-Grace Airways in preference to any
other American company." This was in vi-'
olation of the age-old ruling that the U.S.
government does not favor any one com-
pany abroad at the expense of another.

FDR LOVED PAN AM
E VEN UNDER Democratic Administra-
tions, Pan American continued to get
just as many favors. Ed Stettinius, brother-
in-law of Juan Trippe, Pan American pre-
sident, was long in the Roosevelt Adminis-
tration and for a time a member of the
cabinet. FDR liked both Ed and Juan Trippe
and he also liked Pan Am. The latter got
the heaviest mail subsidies-and still does.
And, when trust-busting Thurman Arnold,
assistant attorney general, proposed prose-
cuting Pan American for violation of the
Sherman Antitrust Act, he was stopped
dead in his tracks.
"If you insist on this," warned Attor-
ney General Robert Jackson, "you'll have
Arnold backed away for a time, but still
made noises about going after Pan Ameri-
can. Shortly thereafter and much to his
own surprise, he was abruptly promoted to
the U.S. Court of Appeals.
Imagine the surprise of the aviation world,
therefore, and particularly Sam Pryor, when
the Eisenhower Administration this week
slapped exactly the same antitrust suit on
Pan American that Roosevelt had vetoed.
Pan Am with the Grace steamship lines and
their subsidiary, Panagra, were charged with
monopolizing air transportation between the
United States and Latin America.
Ironically, the suit came shortly after
Robert C. Hill, vice-president of Grace,
was rewarded by the Eisenhower Adminis-
tration by being made U.S. ambassador
to Costa Rica.
NOTE-Latest wise crack among Wash-
ington lawyers: "How soon wlil Assistant
Attorney General Sanley Barnes be pro-
moted to the Supreme Court?" (In addi-
tion to Arnold's promotion to the Court of
Appeals when he tried to sue Pan Am, Har-
lan F. Stone, then attorney general, was ap-
pointed to the Supreme Court by Calvin
Coolidge when he insisted on prosecuting'
Andy Mellon's Aluminum Corporation of
America. Mellon was then Secretary of the
Treasury and a cabinet colleague of Stones.)
150,000 AUTO THEFTS
SENATE INVESTIGATORS are calling up-
on the automobile industry to supply
the answer to the nation's most common*
juvenile crime-auto thefts.
The Hendrickson Committee, investigat-
ing juvenile delinquency, has found that
nearly 150,000 autos are stolen each
year, mostly by teen-age kids. If cars
could be made tamper-proof, it would
help curb this flagrant contribution to
As a result, the committee will invite in-
dustry spokesmen to explain what is being
done to protect automobiles from juvenile
"hot wire" specialists. This is the name
given to auto thieves who pick the ,ignition
lock, cross certain wires and start the car
without a key.
Committee investigators have found that
thieves usually break into a car by forcing
the side window-vent or picking the out-
side lock. What is needed, they say, is a
side window that can't be smashed or forced,
an outside lock that can't be picked and an
inside lock on the ignition.

"quotation" attributed to me ap-
peared in the January 7 edition of
The Daily I have been questioned
often on the issue of the Thanks-
giving vacation and my vote on
this issue. I would like to clear
the matter now.
On January 6 at 11:45 p.m,'
12:00 Midnight, and 12:15 a.m. I
received telephone calls. Two were
from Gayle Greene, one from
Becky Conrad, of The Daily. On
all three calls I was asked ques-
tions and told, after answering,
that these were for publication. I
refused to be quoted on each call
