STATEMENT OF DR. GARTH L. MANGUM, OF UTAH
Dr. MANGUM. It is a pleasure for me to be here this morning, Senator Hill. I think I might say whatever qualifications I have for this position were primarily gained right here in a year as research director of Senator Clark's subcommittee in which we went rather deeply into some of these same areas that the Automation Commission will go into-is already going into-so in some sense I look at this as a continuation of that effort and, of course, it was during that period of time that the bill was being considered which created the Commission, though it was passed after I had left.
The CHAIRMAN. But you worked with Senator Clark on the legislation, did you not, quite a bit?
Dr. MANGUM. Yes.
The CHAIRMAN. And heard the testimony of the witnesses?
Dr. MANGUM. Yes; during the period we were considering Senator Javits' Resolution 105 that led up to this.
The CHAIRMAN. Research director on Senator Clark's subcommittee is one of Dr. Mangum's previous jobs, also a consultant with the Bureau of the Census.
Senator CLARK. Senator, could I say just a word?
The CHAIRMAN. Yes.
Senator CLARK. I would not want to take credit for having invented Dr. Mangum but I certainly want to take some credit for having discovered him and brought him here to Washington to work on the Manpower Subcommittee for a better part of a year. He was intelligent, faithful, and very, very able. I hated to lose him to the Department of Labor. I have only high praise for his abilities and confidence that in his new position he is not only going to do a lot of splendid work which this committee will strongly approve of, but within the limits of loyalty and security I think he will be an invaluable source of additional information for us.
Senator MORSE. An excellent appointment.
The CHAIRMAN. Senator Javits.
Senator JAVITS. I would assume that the Senators from Dr. Mangum's home State have approved this nomination?
The CHAIRMAN. Both of the Senators from Utah, Senator Moss and Senator Bennett, have approved it and the clerk of the committee advises me that both of the Senators are enthusiastic about this appointment.
Senator PROUTY. Mr. Chairman, I may add I know Dr. Mangum and I agree with everything Senator Clark expressed.
Senator JAVITS. May we ask one question?
The CHAIRMAN. Certainly.
Senator JAVITS. Dr. Mangum, what is the time limit to do this job for the Commission? Is there any time under the bill?
Dr. MANGUM. Yes; the legislation requires a report to the President and Congress on January 1, next.
Senator JAVITS. Do you think it can be done within that time? Dr. MANGUM. Much can be done, everything could not be done over 10 years. I think what the Commission could do within that time, they can do much of the examination, much to put the picture into perspective, and I think they can do much to recommend further efforts and perhaps recommend some ongoing mechanisms by which technological change that could be monitored in the future could grow out of this.
Senator JAVITS. When you speak of an ongoing mechanism, do I sense that you have such a dedication to this particular enterprise that you would feel if you could possibly do it a responsibility to carry on to see whatever is recommended was actually implemented?
Dr. MANGUM. I suppose we will have to wait until next January to see about that. I am supposedly on leave from a university which I continue to go on leave year after year but someday I suppose I am going to have to either go back or resign.
Senator JAVITS. But you feel a commitment to this?
Dr. MANGUM. Yes; as I said, Senator, this is much that you and others on this subcommittee were working very hard on and will really require many years of continued effort to see that we get adjusted to it and take advantage of all of the possibilities that come out of this.
Senator JAVITS. I am certainly satisfied with this.
The CHAIRMAN. Any further questions, gentlemen?
Senator CLARK. Mr. Chairman, may I have the privilege of moving confirmation of the nominee?
The CHAIRMAN. The Senator from Pennsylvania moves the nomination be reported favorably to the Senate.
Is there any discussion?
[There was no response.]
The CHAIRMAN. All in favor of the motion signify by saying "Aye." [There was a chorus of "ayes."]
The CHAIRMAN. Opposed, "No"?
[There was no response.]
The CHAIRMAN. The motion is unanimously carried, sir. We will be happy to have you come before the committee and will be calling you back again soon.
Dr. MANGUM. I certainly hope so. Thank you very much. (Thereupon, at 10:20 a.m., the committee proceeded to other business.)
