social worker who put 4000 000 men to work in the civil works program prob ably has paid less attention to precedent than any other man in and official dig nity still rests lightly upon him Probably term ing himself a noncompromist he has given Harry L democratic party Hopkin regulars a few headches by his outspoken com instance the time he described Upton Sinclairs nomina tions in California as great busi ness Gets Things Done He brings to his new job this same outspokeness that two years of handling relief and spending around have not stilled a Puckish mixture of ideal ism and toughfibred realism and a reputation for getting things done in a hurry Tall younglooking perhaps he more nearly speaks the average mans vernacular than any other new dealist many times he pub licly has abhorred politics of the patronage sort and despite a num ber ofcollisionswith cdngTesahihasVretained an unusual popularitywith them He never has hesitated to dress down officials with whom he came to blows in
