He is a career federal executive.

Director Mayo said that President Nixon is very much concerned with overlapping activities in the Federal Government and has asked the Bureau of the Budget to make a determined effort to eliminate the waste caused by duplication of effort. He is also deeply concerned about the complexity of governmental procedures, particularly with respect to programs assisting States and local communities, and has expressed gratification with Mr. Ink's appointment as an important step toward achievement of his objectives.

The Office of Executive Management is established to provide leadership in strengthening management throughout the executive branch. Mr. Mayo said this office will give high priority to assisting department and agency heads with interagency and intergovernmental management problems, especially in domestic programs where there is an urgent need to develop better systems for carrying out projects involving a number of agencies in different levels of government. Mr. Ink also will be concerned with day-to-day operational coordination problems and ways in which interagency bottlenecks can be broken and actions expedited.

Mr. Ink has had diversified management experience in the local, national, and international levels. He served the past three years as Assistant Secretary for Administration of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, where he helped merge five semi-autonomous agencies into the new Department. From 1959 to 1966, he was Assistant General Manager of the Atomic Energy Commission. While there, Mr. Ink was engaged in a number of international activities and special assignments from the President and the Bureau of the Budget. He was Chairman of the White House Task Force on Education in 1965 and Executive Director of the Cabinet-level Commission created by President Johnson to help rebuild Alaska after the disastrous 1964 earthquake. Mr. Ink last year chaired a Presidential interagency Task Force which has recommended ways of cutting in half the processing time for a large number of Federal grant-in-aid programs.

Mr. Ink entered Federal service with the Bureau of Reclamation in 1950 to work on municipal water and sewage problems. He joined the Atomic Energy Commission in 1951 at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Before entering Federal service, Mr. Ink was Budget and Personnel Officer of Fargo, North Dakota.

In 1961, Mr. Ink received the Arthur Flemming Public Service Award, and in 1966 received both the Distinguished Service Award from AEC and the Career Service Award from the National Civil Service League.

GEN. B. A. SCHRIEVER, USAF (RETIRED) At the time of his retirement from the United States Air Force on 31 August 1966, General Schriever was commander of the Air Force Systems Command (AFSC) and Director of the Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) Program. As commander of the AFSC, he was responsible for those research, development, test, engineering and procurement actions necessary to insure that the USAF had the very best equipment possible for the jobs at hand then, as well as in the future-for use in the jungles of Vietnam as well as in the outer reaches of space. AFSC's annual budget totaled nearly eight billion dollars.

Since retirement, General Schriever has served as a consultant to industry and government in technical and management subject areas. He is Chairman of the Board of Schriever & McKee Associates, a management-consultant firm located in Arlington, Virginia, and serves many other corporate boards.

General Schriever had a most distinguished career in the services of his country. Combat service in the South Pacific during World War II was followed by Pentagon assignments and a year at the National War College.

In June 1953, he was promoted to Brigadier General and became Assistant to the Commander, Air Research and Development Command the following year. In 1954 he assumed command of the Air Force Western Development Division (WDD) at Inglewood, California. In this capacity he directed both the nation's highest priority projects—the development of the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile program (ICBM), and development of the Air Force's initial space programs. He is responsible not only for pushing forward research and development on all phases of the Atlas, Titan, Thor and Minuteman missiles, but also for concurrently providing the launching sites and equipment, tracking facilities, and group support necessary for missile operation.

In 1959 General Schriever assumed command of the Air Research and Development Command and was promoted to Lieutenant General.

In 1961 ARDC was reorganized and became the Air Force Systems Command. He was named commander and promoted to the rank of full General.
