will be able to get more than par-
tial information as to available op-
portunities in cities and few wll

It is therefore desired that the
co-operation between the govern-
ment and the associated organiz-
tions be conducted along the fol-
lowing general plan:
The bureau manager should be
in executive control of the office
of the local bureau and should usu- I
ally be the administrative officer !
of the board of management. This
board is to be composed of repre-1
sentatives of the community labor
board wherever such a board ex-
ists, and of the community coun-
cils of defense, of the local branch
of each organization represented
the central committee and oth-
er local organization, a represen-
tative of labor and other represen-
tative citizens. ,
It should be established as the
guiding principle of adminstraton
(1) That when and in so far as
the Bureau shall be functioning,
the separate co-operating agen-
cies should refrain from doing any
direct placing and in that respect
should limit themselves to regis-
tering the applicant, and cither di-
recting them to the headquarters
of the Bureau or acting as inter-
mediaries between the applicants
and the Bureau for the purpose of
(2) That they should register
all opportunities that are brought
to their attention with the Bureau
so that it shall be enabled to con-
duct the clearance.
(3) That the U. S. Employment
Service shall be used to centralize
the records and to clear jobs and
applications within the communi-
ty and with other communities.
(4) That were the Bureaus func-
ton properly, the separate agencies
shall not as a general practice seek
jobs for individuals unless with
the approval of the local Board
but shall pool with the Bureaus all
jobs available and direct all men
who come to them to the Bureau to
be placed by it.

I am so anxious to get started into

citizen, for it is the one and only
