Carruthers, president, charged the dralt ol the federation does not concentrate authority and responsi bility nor provide for any legislative activity. The tentative draft provides for a council-manager form ol government, the councilmen to be elected by voters who have lived in the District at least one year, the members ol the council to be residents at least five years. The council would act as a legis lative or policy-forming organization, with the power to pass any rule, reg ulation, ordinance or other legislative matter ordinarily enacted by the city council or a State Legislature. It also would be empowered to appoint a city manager. The right to borrow or to Incur In debtedness would be denied except on approval of Congress. All Judges of primary, secondary or courts of original Jurisdiction would be elected In the same manner as the council, or appointed by the council. Judges of appeal, superior or su preme courts would be appointed by the President on recommendation of the Department of Justice. It was also recommended In Car ruthers’ draft to Include provisions for referendum and recall. All municipal employes, under the proposed plan, would be bona fide residents of the District. Copies of the proposed plan were forwarded to the Federation of Citi zens’ Associations. Dr. Bertie Backus, assistant super intendent of schools In charge of character education, told the group of the advantages In continuing the experiment, started a year ago, but eliminated from the District budget.
