Senators Feel Librarian's Appointive
Powers Are Too Broad, Martinet
of New Jersey, Declares.
A movement Is on foot to clip tha wings
of the Librarian of Congress in regard, to
the nearly unlimited power he has to
make appointments or promotions. A
number'of Senators have expressed their
views on the subject and it is expected
a bill limiting the powers of the Libra
rian will'be offered before the Senate.
Senator Martlne, of New Jersey, said
"The Librarian St Congress ha in the
matter of appointments., too much power
for the hands of one man. He can ap
point demote or promote according to
his will. It looks to me too much like a
close t corporation. We intend to curb
his power." '
There are E50 positions In the Congres
sional Library, the salaries aggregating
$700,000 a year. -The Senators have come
to believe that this is too much "pa
tronage" to place in the hands" of one
man. ror it la more than tne .-resident
has to handle.
The bill may take the form of a trans
fer of the appointment to the civil serv
ice, or the positions .may be portioned
out to the various States.
