"The Position of a Forester in Japan"
Abstract:The author, a Naval lieutenant, went to Japan in Military Government immediately after V-J day. His interesting article deals with the anachronistic system of Japanese public administration. While written primarily to oppose impediments toward democratic government and efficient administration in Japan, it is not without its lesson for others. Even in our own country are many who believe that public administration is in itself a profession, that appropriate study in universities, followed by properly graded assignments will qualify men as administrators of technical agencies, posts to which the technicians they feel should not aspire. Those few who hold these views, and there are some foresters among them, will do well to consider the blight such a system has laid on Japanese technical departments.
