Of atty of feature service writer a Ashington May 8�?call time out on the european headlines for a few minutes and you la Dis cover that the Congress and the presided of the United states Are working up a new design for democracy right under your nose the pattern of their Effort goes by the name of Quot government but Don t in that fool you what goes on is a lot closer to Home plate than a my it moving Dav for government agencies rho Basic idea seem to be to make democracy work in the face of the stinging argument of the totalitarians that democracy stands for the immediate objective of reorganization is efficiency and Economy in our bureaucracy but far More important it was found necessary to create a new device a new design perhaps a now balance of Power in government to achieve that simple end. The Roosevelt administration and the Law makers who helped the administration put Over the new re organization a claim its the most important step toward efficiency in democracy in 25 years and they swear they Raven t sacrificed the democratic principle to achieve their end the opposition ramp tells a different Story. They Wear by and in he congressional record that the Constitution has Bern crapped and we Are on the it err of g be inner by decree it ii get f Volution Ary As for who s right Well just have to wait and see out in the new reorganization Law we do have a new design that is certainly evolutionary perhaps revolutionary by this device the president proposes and the Congress disposes the president initiates the con Gress be of the Normal democratic procedure is therefore reversed in two of the three branches of or government the third the supreme court still nolds the final kibitzing Power doing business at the a ame old constitutional stand. So. We now have the president proposing definite rigid plans to streamline the executive Branch of the government the Congress has no right under the new Law to tamper with any plan he sets up. It May not filibuster the idea to death for it must act within 60 lays. Or forever after hold its peace but if the two houses can get together they can by a simple major Ity veto any reorganization plan and thereby kill i it deader than a door Nail. Off hand it May seem Odd to you that the president and the Congress have decided to Swap their magic wands of Power in the name of efficiency. I it is Odd. Only the combination of derisive taunts of dictator governments and equally effective Razz berries on the floor of Congress was effective in prod Ding oui lawmakers to face the Issue Byrnes tells pm listen to senator Byrnes from South Carolina arguing with his colleagues in the tense Days before the reorganisation Law was passed every senator says he favors reorganization. Presidents Theodore Roosevelt Taft Harding Wilson and Coolidge were in favor of it. A republicans and democrats you have been saying you favor reorganization for 25 years. Why Haven t you done it. Why not Tell the Man in the Street the facts. Quot we Are too close to the seat of government to do have not been Able to remain in my office for j the last 24 i go out of this chamber now. I will be called to tile phone. Some Man who has i been appointed to office will Telephone How Many senators have come to me to say a i am for reorganization but i have a Good Friend on such and such a commission. Is it not possible to exempt that commission from reorganization a we forge the advice of the great Champ Clark who said a we listen. To those who have Access to our ears and forget the multitudes who can never see our faces or hear our a the reorganization Law went through the Senate Only after a recess was taken to unscramble a parliamentary traffic Jam. But when it did go through it contained a Host of concessions to the people who want to safeguard democracy first and attend to efficiency and Economy afterwards. At one Point in the formula required by the new Law a simple majority of the two houses can upset the reorganization Apple Ca and Scurry Back to the slow deliberative procedure that was Good enough for father. Furthermore and finally the supreme court May yet have to decide whether the Law itself is constitutional but meanwhile the president has started the Ball rolling with plan no. I affecting 90.000 Federal employees.
