Gradual Change Said to Be
CIVIL 'SERVICE NO BAR
To Bring Administration to High
est. Peak of Service Declared
to Be Programme's Aim.
WASHINGTON, X. C. April 4.
Gradual reorganization of government
departments along the lines toward
effecting- a maximum of efficiency
was said today in official circles to
be the programme or the administra
tion already begun, which is to result
in changes wherever the infusion of
new blood is judged necessary.
Operation of the civil service rules
will not be allowed to hinder efforts
to bring the administration of the
government to the highest peak of
service, according to advisers close to
President Harding who- believe that
the president is empowered to make
whatever changes in official person
nel may be deemed expedient in the
interest of the country at large,
though, if necessary, enabling legis
lation may be obtained from congress
Jinny Changes Already Made.
The president was represented a
holding the view that under the con
stitution the chief executive is
charged with the duty of exercisin
the best judg-ment in the administra
tion of the office entrusted to him.
Many changes have already taken
place, particularly in the treasury de
partment, it was said, where com
plete reorganization of ihe bureau of
engraving and printing and the cus
toms service has already been ef
fected and where other important
shifts are to be expected soon. Simi
larly in the shipping board and other
agencies -of the government, where
different ideas of office administra
tion are believed advisable, replace
ment of executive heads is taking

In some quarters the view was ad

proceed regardless of party affilia

methods now considered faulty to
make way for the most modern pro
Reorganization is planned,; It wa:
said, today in the internal revenue

places. As soon as the internal reve

The president's dismissal of 29
bureau of engraving executives was
the center of another storm of demo
cratic protest in congress today de
spite a White House explanation that
the president had not intended by his
action to '-reflect on the character"
of any of the discharged officials.
In the senate congressional inquiry,
was proposed- formally in a resolu
tion by Senator Caraway, democrat,
Arkansas, who declared the presi
dent's " unheralded dismissal order
had been "inhuman and inexcusable."
Several other democratic senators
joined in the attack, while in the
house Representative Dyer, democrat,
Tennessee, assailed the president's act
as nothing short of an "outrage."
Reasons Declared Ample.
Taking the lead in defense of the
administration. Senator New, repub
lican, Indiana, told the senate there
were "ample reasons for the dismissal.
aitnougn unfortunately there were
times when .the president could not
take the country into his confidence."
A general debate involving the
whole patronage policy of the ad
ministration developed over Senator
Caraway's resolution, but it went
over without action.
At the White House Secretary
Christian, acting for the president,
declared in a letter to one of the
dismissed officials that a full explana
tion was not yet opportune, although
the chief executive regretted that "in
sinuating publicity" was being given
the incident. There had been no de
sire, the secretary wrote, to reflect
on the character of any government
There was no possibility, it was
declared, that any of the dismissed
officials would be restored to office.

of the Nash Four has inspired so -much
favorable comment as the re

The reason for the surpassing ease
with which it travels the roughest roads
goes straight back to the new-type
Nash springs which are formed of one
great masterleaf, an increased number
of scientifically, graduated thinner and
' more flexible leaves, and a rebound
plate that," in effect, forms a cushion
between the body of the car and the
