No business corporatlou, however trongly established, couhl long endure th heavy annual drain on Its resources. FIu adreds of inen leave the government seice tinily; and new, untrained peopehye to be taken on and taught to do the.work. This etmts money, as every employer knows, The resignations from the govern- meat service are chiefly from the su- pervisory and most highly paid pnsl- lions and from the very lowest gra(les. The men at the top, If they have any initiative or ability or amhitlon to make a name for themselves, are of fared private employment at doublt or treble or more what the goveru- meat can pay them. The people In the lowest grades leave for prlvltte employment when opportunity affords because in too many instances tlley actually cannot keep body and soul together on their government pay. It Is the people in the middle clast who stay on the longest. Tile whole constant process makes for a steady deterioration In the quality of the govermnent service and tends to re- tain the mediocre in public employ meat. ,The civil service commission, through which the great bulk of government employees are brought into the serv lee, la acutely aware of tills condition Its reports give emphasls to the dlfll. eUlty constantly experienced in secur. lug and retaining competent employ. The rotation In office has become increasingly frequent and vitally im- imirs the efficiency of the service. During toe war there was a lower rate of turnovar In the mechanical fore than in outside establishments. The propoeltlon of separations, how- ever, is excessive lu clerical profes- sional and technical positions, in which the rate of turnover sometimes amounts to a third ff the force in a year. Durinl the nine taontbl, precedlog the armistice more than 60,000 ap- peintment were made In the civil ee tad about 28,000 separations ed--that is, for every two ap- polntmeats made one person left tile emadee. For a period of similar length followln| the armistice only 60 per carat as many appeintmenta were made. but there were nearly 83 per cent more aeparetlon& In this period ahnost as many peeiUons were vacated as were mle The exlgenelee of the war required • iffeat expansion of the clerical fos at Washington and elsewhc.re and this was accomplished by a labor tmmover several times above normal. The percentage of declinations of aP- po/ntments mong eligibles on the Civ- Il service egtster increased In many lnstaueem from 80 to more than 50 per cant--that IS, more than half the men and women who successfnlly passed civil service examinations and were offered Jobs under the government re- filled to take them. It is estinulted that more than 950,000 of those wire met the. test were Sppointed during that time. The civil service commission says flatly: • rhose familiar with the federal Service at Washington know that tile mvice is now hampered by the re- ttion of incompetents whose re- moval is rendered difficult by lnflueoces which are incompatible with the effi- ciency of the Service. Preferences and exez0ptlons Increasingly clog the departments With pers)ns whO. rL matter how inefficient, are difficult I" remove, and whose retention tends to dutroy the discipline of the service." Among these Inefficient,, of course. are the superannuated and tile phys- Ically incapacitated.
