HIRE CHIEF DIRECTOR OF FISTS
Commission Suggests Long Term for
Head of Department at High
Salary Less Red Tape,
Waahlngton, Feb. 11. Congress
today received a preliminary report
of the Joint commlaalon appointed
during the last congress to invcatl
gato tho bualneaa methods of the
poatofllce department and poctofflce
service and submit recommendations
for legislation to effect change In
their administration. Tbo commis
sion, consisting of Senators Penrose,
Carter nnd Clay, and Representative.
Ovcrstroet, Oardner of New Jersey,
and Moon, points out many objee
tlonablo methods ot both depart
ments. Among tho recommendations
Is a ptan to placo tbo actual direc
tion of tho business ot the poatoMce
department under the acrvlco of aa
officer, with necessary assistants to
bo appointed by tho president, "by
and with tho advice and consent ot
tho senate," for long terms, so as
to Insure the continuance of efficient
service. Under tho plan the postmaster-general,
as a member ot tbo
cabinet, Is chargeablo with general
supervisory control and tho determi
nation of question ot policy.
Tbo commlaalon also recommends
that the business of tho department
bo decentralized so as to avoid tho
congestion at tho national capital
which Impairs tho efficiency and In
creases the cost of tbo service; that
tho bookkeeping, auditing and ac
counting bo simplified, unified and
centralized to secure greater accur
acy, more prompt methods and elim
ination ot duplication of work; and
that tho practlco or requiring need
less detailed reports from small post
offices bo discontinued. The moder
ate application ot tho non-accounting
system to small offices will eliminate
about 30,000, or nearly one-half, ot
all the postofflco accounts from tha
present complex report and book
keeping system, or would at least
greatly simplify the samo. Tho com
"It appears too obrlous to require
argument that tho moat efficient ser
vlco can never bo expected as long
as the direction of tho business Is.
as at present entrusted to a postmaster-general
and certain assistants
selected without special reference to
cxpcdlenco and qualifications and
subject to frequent change. Under
such a system a large railroad, com
mercial or Industrial business would
eventually go Into bankruptcy, and
the postofflco department has averted
that fate only becauso the United
Stntea treasury has been available
to meet deficiencies."
