meaning: place, dispose

措置 ==  sochi == (noun) measure, step

Left radical is one of the radical versions of 'hand'. Right radical is 'past', (昔), which is used here phonetically to express 'dispose'. To 'dispose of something with the hand' is to place it somewhere.  Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Hand from past placed at one's disposal.'
