Abolish Interior Department,
Hoover'Task Force' Advises
By George H. Hall
Wuhlnston Correspondent of the
St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Abolition of the Interior Depart
ment and a sweeping reorganiza
tion and regrouping of agencies ad
ministering the Nation’s natural
resources are recommended by a
"task force” of the Hoover Com
mission on the Reorganization of
the Executive Branch.
The proposal would combine the’
river development functions of the
Army Engineers, the Reclamation
Bureau and other agencies under a
Water Development Service, which
would be placed in a new Depart
ment of Natural Resources.
The task force expressed opposi
tion to the extension of the Tennes
see Valley Authority principle to
, other river basins, though criticiz
ing the waste and inefficiency of
the present operations in the Mis
souri River basin.
Adoption Uncertain.
Should the commission adopt the
report of its task force, or special
committee, and should Congress
follow the recommandations, the
proposed Missouri Valley Adminis
tration would be dealt a mortal
Whether the task force recom
mendations will be incorporated
into the commission’s recommenda
tions to Congress, due in the next
few weeks, is not known. But it is
known that the task force sweated
mightily to produce a report that
was not all out for the TVA prin
ciple and at the same time did not
accept the status quo.
Following is a summary of the
task force recommendations (it is
divided into two parts; the first
dealing with organization, the sec
ond with policy):
1. Establishment of a consolidated
Water Development Service, to ad
minister the present functions of
the Reclamation Bureau, the river
development functions of the Corps i
of Engineers, the power marketing
functions of the Bonneville and
Southwestern Power Administra
tions and of the Division of Power
in the Interior Department, certain
river development functions now ad
ministered by the Federal Power
Commission, and certain functions
of the State Department relating to
international boundary streams.
The committee recommends the re
i tention of the Tennessee Valley Au
thority in its present form, but the
establishment of additional valley
authorities is opposed.
Forest and Range Service Urged.
2. Establishment of a consolidated
Forest and Range Service, based on
the present Forest Service and fur
thering its general policies, but in
cluding the forest and range man
agement functions of the Bureau of
Land Management and the research
functions of the Agriculture Depart-1
ment relating to forest insects and
forest diseases.
3. Regional decentralization of
the Water Development Service and
the Forest and Range Service, by
river basins where practicable, to
facilitate "grass roots” decisions,
| inter-service co-operation and local
participation in planning.
4. Division of the Fish and Wild
life Service into two units, a Fish
ieries Service and a Wildlife Service,
! to make possible greater attention to
the problems of commercial fish
eries. ' *
5. To the end that only econom
ically feasible projects shall be in
stituted by the resource agencies
and especially the Water Develop
ment Service, the establishment in
the Executive Office of the Presi
dent of a Board of Co-ordination
and Review with responsibility for
reviewing and co-ordinating plans
for each major project from the
time it is first proposed: for making
certain that only projects which are
economically and socially justifiable
are recommended for approval, and
for assuring effective participation
by all Federal and State agencies
concerned during the formative
! stage.
Transfer of Activities Sought.
6. Transfer to the Bureau of
Mines of certain related activities
from other Federal agencies.
7. Re-establishment of the Gen
eral Land Office as a record-keeping
and title-holding agency for public
8. The union into a Department
of Natural Resources of the Water
Development Service, the Forest
and Range Service, the Geological
Survey, the Bureau of Mines, the
National Park Service, the Fisheries
Service, the Wildlife Service and the
General Land Office. The Interior
Department would cease to exist.
9. The retention of the public
domain in Federal ownership and
its preservation in the national in
terest for future generations.
10. The modernization of mineral
Private Enterprise Favored.
11. The furtherance of private en
terprise in a number of matters
involving commercial fisheries, serv- I
ices to privately-owned forests and l
mineral leases.
12. The strengthening of State
participation and responsibility by
assuring co-operative development
of water resource projects.
13. Increased emphasis on recre
ation values.
14. The rectification of conflict
ing legislation in land use and
water development and of varying
methods of estimating feasibility in
river basin projects.
15. Better provision for collect
ing basic data on water, land and
mineral resources.
Former Gov. Leslie A. Miller of
Wyoming headed the task force.

charge of pay raises for police,

City workers were deprived of a
$330 pay raise last summer when
Congress granted such an increase
to all Federal classified workers.
Mr. Davis and other House Dis
trict subcommittee leaders had
hoped to include raises for all city
workers in one bill, including classi
fied employes. But decision was
reached late Friday that classified
people fall under jurisdiction of
the Civil Service Committee only.
So this leaves only unclassified
people for House District Commit
tee consideration.
Several proposals already are be

bill by Mr. Davis would give the
$330 pay raise to all city employes,
except the Superintendent of
Schools. Another would increase

Executive Rivals Stars.
Miss Davis drew her pay from the
same film concern as Bogart,
Warner Brothers. Miss Durbin was
paid $323,477 by Universal Pictures.
But a woman business executive
overtook many of the film lovelies.
She is Dorothy Shaver, 51-year
old, Arkansas-born president of Lord
and Taylor, New York department
store. The store paid her $110,000.
That, for example, was $15,584
more than the $94,416 credited to
Movie Actress Rita Hayworth, now
the fiancee of Ali Kahn, wealthy
Indian prince.

Pictures, and George W. Mason,
board chairman of the Nash
Kelvlnator Corp., Detroit, $250,000.
MacMurray Listed at 9175,000.
Actor Fred MacMurray received
only $175,000 on this list (from Uni
versal Pictures), but then he’d been
paid $150,000 on the initial list for
the period (from Paramount Pic
Actress Ginger Rogers and Actor
Thomas Mitchell were others who
appeared on both lists for the 1946
and 1947 fiscal periods. She got
$157,142 this time and $84,478 last;
Mitchell got $84,375 this time, $121,
875 last.
Although Mr. Bogart not only led
this list but was the only person
on it to draw more than $400,000,
he got less than half as much as;
the leader on the first, partial re
port-film financer Charles P.
Skouras—whose earnings were $985,
300. 1
The leading woman in the initial
report for the period was Betty
Grable, shaDely film star, with $299,
Heirs, Heiresses Left Out.
Since the Treasury lists deal only
with money earners, they leave outi
of account many heirs and heiresses
who get big incomes from vast;
family estates: Neither Doris Duke
nor Barbara Hutton, for example,
has ever been listed.
Among the well-known names on
the new list were such movie folk
as Rosalind Russell, $190,104; Clau
dette Colbert, $83,871; Dan Duryea,
$151,086; Jack Benny, $125,000; Lew
Ayres, $1<J5,000; Jack Carson, $159,
