MEANS EFFICIENCY'S LOSS But, Says Editor, Long Needed Reaction Is Just Begin ning to Set In. "Efficiency and not economy is ex pected of the Government depart ments in Washing-ton by the people of the country. During' recent years the "workings of tho Government bureaus have been hampered by a bugaboo which ivas known as economy." These aro views expressed In the current issue of the Government Clerk, whose editor declares employes of the Government received an average sal ary of $1,200 a year In 1015 as com pared with $1,400 In 1853, because of slashing In the name of economy. Btsn to Double Up. "Nearfy every employing' official, in order to makd a record for himself for economy, began to ask fox lower salaried clerks, began to double up the work; in fact. In many other ways tried to reduce the operating ex penses of his particular branch of the Government machine to a minimum, with the result that often times ef ficiency was lost Eight of in an en deavor to make a grandstand play for economy," says the magazine. "But the reaction is beginning to set In. Big men in the Government bureaus are beginning to realize that the departments at Washington are not here to be run for profit, nor are they to be run with any parsimonious methods, but it is fast becoming the prevailing thought that these depart ments are established to give service. I Here to Serve People. "Let us realize that we' are in Wash ington mainly to serve the people as a whole. When this idea begins to sim mer through the craniums of some of the 'powers that be then and then only will something be done along the line of paying Government employes salaries commensurate with their work and in accord with present living conditions. "Let Uncle Sam get busy at once and adjust the salaries of his em ployes in accordance with tne scale of wages paid by business corpora tions throughout the country."
