Census Workers Drawn
From Merit Rolls Asked
Use of civil service registers for
building up the field force for the
forthcoming census was urged on
President Roosevelt yesterday by ■
the National Civil Service Reform
Eeague.
More than 120,000 employes re
quired for this work are appointed
through members of Congress, al
though the headquarters staff here
Is under civil service.
“It would, of course, be most un
fortunate if the great work of tak
ing the 1940 census were to be
handicapped through the appoint
ment of any considerable number
of employes deficient either in men
tal equipment or personal reliabil
ity,” the league said. "Yet, such
has been the almost invariable re
sult of relying on political sources
Recommendation for appointment to
public work of the sort in ques
tion. Peculiarly has this been so
in the taking of some of the pre
ceding Federal and State censuses.”
The league pointed out that a
precedent for using civil service
employes in this work was estab
lished by President Theodore Roose
velt in 1910.
