Bookkeeper Promotion Exam Coming

th e test, T h e Leader has le a rn e d

e xclu sively.

This exam will be one of the biggest

promotion tests of the year,

since all employees In the clerical

service earning less than $1,800 will

be eligible. Probably all other city

employees earning less than $1,800

would be 'perm itted to file for the

test. In addition, employees in other

services who earn less than $1,800

probably will be allowed to compete

in the test.

There are no current lists for

Bookkeeper Grade 1 or Grade 2.

The previous Bookkeeper exam, for

Grade 1, was an open competitive

test. A large eligible list resulted

from this test, and the list was used

for many positions. When the list

died last September, 765 was the

num ber of the last eligible appointed

to a permanent position;

1,287 was the last person appointed

to a tem porary position.

While the Commission in the past

has held competitive tests for Bookkeeper,

the new policy is to hold

city-wide promotion exams to provide

greater opportunities lor employees.

The salary of the Bookkeeper

Job ranges from $1,200 to

$1,800. • Promotions are possible to

Grade 2 positions, and to Senior

Bookkeeper, From that Job, em ­

ployees can go on to higher positions

in the Accounting Service.

More details about this test will

appear in future issues of The

Two popular new city-wide promotion

examinations were ordered

last week by the Municipal Civil

Service Commi.ssion, The tests are

for promotion to Senior Bookkeeper

and promotion to Accountant, Gr. 2.

Originally the Commission had ordered

these exams as departmental

promotions for the Board of T ransportation.

In cancelling the departmental

promotion exams and ordering

city-wide ones, the Commission

is following its general policy of

making the promotion ba.se as wide

as possible in the city service.

Full requirements, filing dates and

other information about these tests

will be published in The LEAorn as

A procedure for handling the applications

was agreed on by the

Police Department and the Municipal

Civil Sei'vice Commission last

week end Each commanding officer

was instructed to send in a list showing

the number of men from his

precinct who intended to apply for

the exam. The Police Department is

now sending out application blanks

together with envelopes addressed

to the Civil Service Commission,

These will be individually filled in

and mailed by each Patrolman.

Date for Test Uncertain

The Civil Service Commission has

announced that the written test for

Sergeant will tentatively be held on

Sunday, June 15, However, there is

considerable speculation on whether

this will be possible. There are tVvo

main objections: (1) that by holding

the test on Sunday, many men will

be prevented from attending regular

religious services; (2) that it will

cause a first-rate administrative

problem to attempt to police the

city with 13,000 cops off duty at the

same time.

While the Commission does not

like to hold such an important exam

in two sessions, the chances are that

they will decide to do so.

Study material for the Sergeant’s

test appears on this page, to the right

of this column.

durance for the Job? Do you want

a lithe, agile man, or a slow, powerful

individual. Proper answers to

questions like these can mean the

difference between an efficient and a

slovenly Fire Department.

Last week’s conferences indicated

that the Fire Department wants men

who can keep going under stress for

a long period of time. It means that

the ideal Fireman will be a strong,

tough individual, one wfto can take

it. The "athletic” type, as he is usually

envisioned by most persons,

isn’t the best kind of Fireman. He

may be fast, but he’s not always able

to take it. Strength and endurance

are the big factors. When a big fire

is rqiging, it takes the man who can

do a two-mile run rather than one

who becomes fagged out ofter 100

yards, even though the latter may be

more agile.

This means that more weight will

There will definitely be a coordination

test—that is, a test to examine

eye-hand and eye-foot speed. The

test works as follows; The candidate

sits in a cab similar to that of

a fire truck. In front of him is a

panel with signals. These signals

light up and reveal such phrases as

“left turn,” “right turn,” “hand

brake,” etc. The candidate performs

each task as rapidly as he can. Such

a test was first employed in the Sanitation

exam held last summer. The

cab used then was the standard cab

of the Sanitation Departm ent truck.

The cab to be used this time will

correspond to that of a fire truck.

The Leader will keep prospective

candidates fully informed of all developments

on this exam as soon as

the future to fill jobs as Able-Bodied

Seaman, according to a ruling last

week by the Municipal Civil Servici

Commission. Recently the Able-

Bodied Seaman job was transferred

from the labor to the competitive

class; therefore, the present labor

eligible list for the position can no

longer be used.

There are only a few vacancies

during the course of a year in the

they occur, the Commission ^\ill

and are otherwise qualified. The

Each candidate is asked to look

upon this series as though he were

taking a course in school. The

method employed is to give you a

question one week, and the answer

in the following issue. During the

interim, you should work out your

own answer, then compare it with

the one that appears here. We have

•been asked: “What time limit shall

I place upon each answer?” The

answer is; “None.” The purpose of

this study material is not to test

your speed, but to help your brain

The Civil Service Commission has

stated that it would certify both the

Athletic Events

The Sanitation Eligibles Association

is planning to set up several

athletic teams, and to compete with

city departments and other eligible

groups. Everybody interested in

playing basketball or bowling should

communicate at once with the Association.

Those who would like to

play baseball or other summer sports

should send in their names also, so

that teams may be formed as soon as

the weather permits.

Your Qualifications Wanted

President Donner suggests that all

eligibles let him have a complete

recerd of everything they can do as

well as their educational and experience

background. The reason for

this is the Association’s endeavor to

get the Civil Service Commission to

use the selective certification process

in providing jobs for men on the list.

This is the process whereby the Civil

Service Commission selects persons

with special qualifications for special

jobs, without having to hold a new

exam, simply taking them from existing

“It is ridiculous for a city like New

York to pay perm anent employees,

assured of perm anent work w henever

the weather permits, on the

same basis as seasonal employees in

private industry. There is no reason

in the world why all of the employees

of the President of the Borough

of Manhattan should not receive

a regular annual wage with

regular weekly payments, so that the

wives of our employees need not examine

the weather reports before

going to market. A per annum wage

makes things better not only for the

employees, but for the departm ent as

well. It will save us time and money

in the preparation of payrolls and it

will save us headaches in finding

work for our regular people during

the bad winter months. I think that

all of you realize that I have tried to

the best of my ability to make the

best of the per diem status by permitting

per diem employees to work

overtime in order that you might

realize pay for holidays, and I am

sure you also realize that we have

made a conscientious effort, despite

the serious weather conditions, to

assure you of at least a few days’

work each week. Until we are

finally rid of the per diem status you

may be assured that I shall continue

these efforts to give you as much of

your annual allotment as we possibly

can.” . . ..

the time the Telephone list was

ready, Commissioner Valentine declared

that he liked the idea of putting

in eligibles from the regular

Police list and letting them work in

civilian jobs until they were appointed

to the force.

Such a procedure, he maintained,

would give the men valuable training

and would enable them to become

familiar with the work of the


Start Suit

The Male Telephone Operators,

thwarted on almost every hand in

their quest for jobs, finally started

a suit to force the Commissioner to

use their list. Meantime, the Civil

Service Commission had changed the

title of the position from Telephone

Operator to Telephone Operator (Police).

Then it declared the Patrolman

list “appropriate” for the positions.

The telephone eligibles, repre­

Department is ruled by a handful of

arrogant drivers and sweepers.”

Asked to Intervene

Making specific charges against

Kasoff, which Feinstein says were

revealed to him by sanitation men

who begged him to intervene on

their behalf, Feinstein urged Commissioner

Carey to protect “your departm

ent and your men by (1) re ­

moving all special privileges enjoyed

by Abe Kasoff and his stooges;

(2) holding them strictly accountable

for all violations of the departm ent’s

Code of Discipline and the code of

simple decency.”

Supreme Court when Justice Charles

McLaughlin upheld Valentine. However,

the case was appealed to the

Appellate Division where the eligibles

won a three to two decision.

Now they will go to the highest

court in the State for a final determination.

Important to Eligibles

Attorney Spiegel, in discussing the

case last week, declared that its outcome

would have an important effect

on all city eligible lists. It

would, he added, affect the whole

policy of the Civil Service Commission

in declaring lists “appropriate”

for jobs other than those for which

an exam was held.

“By affirming the Appellate Division’s

decision in this case the

Court of Appeals will be eliminating

an evil which has existed in the Civil

Qualifying practical tests will be

given in the operation of the following

types of motor vehicles: (1) passenger,

which will also be appropriate

for ambulances: (2) trucks; (3)

bus; (4) auto lawnmower; and (5)

surface heater. Candidates can take

any or all of these qualifying tests.

50 at a Time

The qualifying tests will be given

to groups of candidates, probably 50

at a time, as vacancies occur. The

men mu*t possess a valid New York

State ^Chauffeur’s license at^the ^time

of the qualifying test, or they will

not be examined. ‘

A candidate who fails a practical

test for one type of vehicle will not

be permitted to take a test for that

vehicle again. One who fails a test

for passenger vehicles will not be

permitted to take any further tests

for trucks or buses.

Candidates who, for one reason or

another, fail to appear the first time

they are called for a practical test

will be put on a deferred list. Later,

they will be given another opportunity

to appear, but if they fail the

second time to show up, their names

will be stricken from the list.

Bridge Engineers to Fill

Civil Engineer Vacancies

The Municipal Civil Service Commission

last week declared the list

for Assistant Engineer (Designer

Bridge Construction), Grade 4 as appropriate

for vacancies as Assistant

Civii^ Engineer.

Spiegel. “It will afford protection

for those eligibles who pass open

competitive examinations, assuring

them that they will receive the positions

advertised to be filled in the

announcement for the examination.

It will eliminate the discretion in

the hands of the administrative

heads to ‘handpick’ their employees

and discriminate against eligibles on

lists . . . in favor of provisionals or

temporary employees.”

1 Out of Every 3

Transit Men Has

New Status

Nearly one-third of the 27,000

transit employees who came under

city control through unification have

been reclassified into Civil Service

titles and have been given a perm anent

competitive status. A total of

8,083 employees in nine titles have

so far been switched into the competitive


Under the provisions of the Wicki

Law, the Civil Service Commission

must complete the reclassification

job by July 1, 1941, unless ar extension

is granted by the present session

of the Legislature. However,

at the rate the work is proceeding,

the job should be finished within the

allotted time, since new groups of

employees are now being put into

their correct titles and classification

at the rate of nearly 1,000 a week.

Started Last July

Last July, when all transit employees

came under city jurisdiction,

they jvent into the Civil Service noncompetitive

class, and as such had

few of the regulars rights and privileges

given to regular competitive

employees. Before a competitive

status can be given to the transit

workers their citizenship, character,

word records, etc., must be thoroughly

checked. A special force of

workers in the Civil Service Commission

carries on these investigations.

While this job is going o n ,'th e

status of some 300 to 400 aliens in

the transit system remains in doubt.

Many of these aliens tried to comply

with the law, which required

that they file first citizenship papers

within six months after the measure

was adopted. Many were unable to

receive first papers within that time

limit. Some of the aliens have already

been dropped; others are being

kept on provisionally, until the

Legislature acts on bills to extend

the time limit for filing citizenship


The following tabulation last week

showed the num ber of employees in

each title so far classified and the

number remaining in each title:

of eligibles appointed have priority

over a second group appointed at a

later date, even though the first

group ranked below the second

group on the list?

The history: The Commission and

the DPUI have all along held that

seniority rights of employees appointed

from the same certification

of a list for more than 350 positions

to be filled at the same time should

be on the basis of original standing

on the list. The date on which the

employees were told to report for

work has no effect on this. Supreme

Court Justice McLaughlin has upheld

this contention, but those lower

on the list who were reduced to a

lower grade on a seniority basis have


The TiUei Case

That’s brought on a second action,

known as the Tilles case. Supreme

Court Justice Peter Schmuck ordered

a trial of the issues of fact,

to find out just what happened. In

that way, he reasoned, the authorities

would be able to determine^

which of the employees are entitled

to priority in appointment and seniority,

The Appellate Division has affirmed

the order, and this is the trial

now going on.

Facing the Court are these problems:

the record of certification, selection,

appointment and assignment

of each of the employees must be

considered unless the attorneys agree

as to the facts of appointment. Why,

asks the Court, were eligibles as low

as 600 on a list appointed before

others nearer the top started to

and the DPUI; form er Supreme

Court Justice William Harmon

higher on the list, who are the interveners.

Alderman and Kaplan

are both upholding the position of

the Commission and the DPUI, that

all appointees should be treated as

having been appointed in regular order

of their original standing on the

On the ll-Squad Chart for Cops

Dear Mr. Mayor: As a member of New York

City’s Police Force, I feel that the 11-squad chart,

lohich loould give us a 48-hour sioing each week,

will improve the morale and effl,ciency of the

men. I urge that you, as Chief Executive of the

city, get behind the 11-sqitad plan and help us to

gain the decent working hours which it provides.

State vs. Local Commissions

Sirs'. From the story on the Fite

Commission in last week’s Leader,

it seems that a battle is coming between

the counties and the State

Civil Service Commission over who

should administer Civil Service in

those parts of the State where there

is no merit system today. I suppose

that the politicians throughout the

State are in favor of county administration.

May I put in a word for the

State Commission, gathered from

reading The Leader and from some

experience with its work?

We have had a Civil Service law

in New York State for over 50 years.

Yet it’s only in recent years that we

have had really efficient administration,

with decent tests. It took the

most progressive state in the union

half a century to learn how to do

the job.

Now the counties want to supervise

their own Civil Service, starting

in entirely from scratch. Wlay is

this? Don’t they realize that experts

are the only ones to do a decent job,

and that it costs much money to hire

such trained people? Is it because

the politicians think they will be

able to defeat the spirit of the State

Constitution by controlling the Civil

Service administration in their own

bailiwicks? That’s how it looks to

this observer.

Martin Chaney.

Mr. Chaney has jumped the gun a

bit. The bill of the Fite Commission

luon’t be introduced until February

20; until, then, we won’t knoiu ivhat

its recommeyidations are. The Leader

loill keep its readers informed of

what’s what on the bill, and invites

further comment. Ed Note.

Likes Way We Run


Sirs: Your certification and appointment

list that you publish is

very efficient and thorough. I like

the new way that you have of div.il*

ing up the list, as Sanitation

into parts and telling us the stan *

ing of eligibles.

Keep up the good work!

May Andres Healy is granted the widest latitude

in expressing her views. Her opinions do not

necessarily represent the views oi The Leader.

N Wednesday, February 12, the State Legislature will hold its annual

hearing on the State Budget. ,

Although this year’s budget shows a saving of $9,000,000, and the

proposed repeal of the emergency income tax, the old enemies of public

education have indicated that they wili be on hand to advocate further

cuts in the educational budget.

The Citiens’ Budget Commission, the Merchants Association and the

Fedei'ation of Taxpayers are not satisfied that Governor Lehman recommended

a 2 per cent cut in State Aid for education at a time when education

should have more money, not less. Nevertheless, they will be there

with their usual appeals for drastic cuts.

Although the last Constitutional Convention definitely denied their

appeal to repeal the mandatory laws affecting education, the same groups

appear at every hearing making the sam« requests.

Eduction is a State function—and the State Legislature recognizes it as


Dollur Counts Most

This group of lobbyists is paid by the interests they represent to seek

cuts in the cost of government—regardless of the result. The future of

the youth of America is not their concern, it is the almighty dollar which

concerns them most.

They compare the cost of education in their day to present day costs—

but fail to say that living costs then and now are vastly different. There

were fewer schools and fewer children attending schools—today children

remain at school under the compulsory education law and are not permitted

to be exploited as our enemies would have them. Labor received

a wage which barely covered the cost of existence—today, labor is well

organized ^nd cannot be exploited. Federal and State laws protect workers.

Qualifications for teachers were meager then; today they are the

highest to be found in any State.

Lastly, we are living in the modern age, not the horse-and-buggy days

of which they speak. Life now is more complex and children must be

trained along many lines to fit themselves for a successful future.

Best Citizens Wanted

America wants the best citizens possible—therefore Americans are willing

to pay to educate their future citizens. The preservation of democracy

will depend upon them.

Real Americans know that the lack of educational opportunities in

Europe made the people of those countries, cowed by fear, easy prey to

the dictators. This cannot happen to an enlightened people—our citizens

of tomorrow will be well-equipped to carry the burden because of educational

advantages received today.

Let us ignore the enemies of public education and go forward despite

their opposition—progress and education go hand-in-hand.

Q u e s t io n , P le a s e ?

Promotions on

Tunnel Jol)s

A. B. C.—After positions in the

N. Y. C. Tunnel Authority have

been graded, positions in higher

grades may thereafter be filled

only after competitive promotion

examinations. There have been a

number of employees whose positions

were reclassified and

graded, such as the uniformed

force, and in those instances the

incumbents might have been allocated

to the grades in which their

salaries fell without requirement

cf promotion examination.

Leave of Alisenee

T. P.—An employee in a county

position may not be granted a

leave of absence for the purpose

of serving in a city position for

technically he would be in the

service of both at the same time.

A leave of absence is not a separation

from service but only a “.suspension”

of service for a specified



period. An employee in a county

service (within New York City)

who becomes a city employee may

continue his membership in the

New York City Retirement System

on substantially the same basis as

theretofoi-e. Notify the Retirement


Transfer to Better Job

D. F. J.—Frankly, the chance of

transfer of a mess attendant in a

Veterans’ Administration Hospital

to another more substantial position

in the Federal civil seiVice

is not promising. The fact that you

are on the postal clerk-carrier list

will not give you preferential

certification for that position out

of your regular order, notwithstanding

the new rmes of the Com­

mission. This rule will generally

be invoked only in exceptional

cases as the special needs of the

'service warrant. Your best bet

is to try to get on some other active

eligible list for which you

might qualify.

Teachers Come Out

For Doctors

“If the young physician or dentist

must have a proving ground for his

skill, let him seek it somewhere else

than in the school system.” The

Joint Committee of Teachers Organizations,

through Harry Wein-

laerg, public relations chairman, advocated

restoration of the per annual

status to doctors and dentists

at a meeting of the Board of Estimate

last week. Weinberg pointed

out that doctors and dentists employed

on a per session basis, would,

for the most part, be young men

just out of interneships, willing to use

the public health services as a stop

gap to keep going financially while

building up a private practice.

“Their hearts and souls will be in

their practice,” Mr. Weinberg said,

“not in the temporary job.”

Contrasting the present per session

practice with the former per annum

system, the Joint Committee spokesman

said that previously Board of

Health doctors and dentists devoted

their careers to the work of the

school children. They became skilled

pediatricians, thoroughly conversant

in diseases and ailments of children,

the p.sychology and physiology of

children and adolescents.

Another advantage, Weinberg told

the Board of Estimate, was that

permanently employed doctors and

dentists acquired a necessary knowledge

of public school organization,

operation and personnel. "They

learn to co-opts ate with teachers as

well as children. They become experts

at their specialized jobs—

working with the school system to

conserve our greatest asset, the

health of the children.”

Weinberg said that the present

time was ideal to change back to the

old system, because of the need for

young doctors and dentists in the

armed services. He said that if the

national emergency became acute,

the city would be unable to obtain

the .^lervices of sufficient doctors and

dentists and therefore every effort

should be made to retain those who

have been serving.

S. F.—When a Clerk, Grade 2, is

on leave of absence, and an eligi­

ble from a Clerk, Grade 2 list is

appointed temporarily at a Grade 1

salary to fill the position,' the new

temporary appointee may not insist

upon Grade 2 salary; nor may

he insist upon continuance in the

position after th©^ older employee

decides not to return to the position,

unless the “tem porary” appointee

is recertified for permanent

^^Achievement Profile”

New York teachers may be hearing

more about a plan being tried in

Indianapolis. The idea is to measure

high school teachers to a plan

known as an “achievement profile.”

Working on ‘the principle that the

general ability of any individual is

determined by the num ber of his

specific abilities, the general ability

of the Indianapolis teacher is determined

by his effectiveness in twelve

specific areas of service. The effectiveness

of the teacher in the twelve

specific areas is rated in five levels—

honor, superior, good, fair and unsatisfactory.

The twelve areas of service in

which the effectiveness of the teacher

is measured are: 1.—Instructional

effectiveness: effectiveness; classroom

performance. 2.—Contributions to

good teaching conditions: assumption

of teachers for and exercise of influence

over classroom conditions.

3.—Extra-curricular and extra class

service: services in outside class activities.

4.—Service to the profession

at large: participation in educational

programs. 5.—Personal attributes;

characteristics, personality.

6.—Clerical skill: facilitates administrative

detail. 7.—Efficient use of

time: subjects outside interest to professional

growth. 8.—Professional

growth: constructive work in the

field of education. 9.—Professional

adaptability talents for specialized

work. 10.—Physical fitness: implied.

11.—Professional relationship: professional

ethics and standards. 12.—

Community relationships: participation

in community activities.

A group of 150 candidates who

took the recent State Trooper test

were called to the State Capitol

in Albany Tuesday morning at

9 o’clock, where they started undergoing

the rigorous physical exam ination

that is necessary before m aking

the list.

The test is more a medical test

than a physical, as it approximates

the medical examination given by

the United States Army. It is not a

competitive test, nor will it call for

a candidate to climb a rope or

hurdle a parallel bar. All that prospective

Troopers have to do is show

that they meet the physical requirements

set for the test and are in excellent

physical condition.

The medical test usually takes a

heavy toll. On the previous Trooper

exam, of the 634 who passed the

written, 339 were rejected at the

medical. This is more than a 50 percent


Figures on how many passed the

wi'ittcn are not yet available. On

the past test, 1,954 of the 2,588 who

took the written failed.

The 150 were selected in alphabetical

order. Another group will

be notified to appear next week, at

a day convenient to the surgeons of

the Division of State Police,

The shortage In maintenance m anpower

has resulted in the increase of

vandalism, thoughtless and deliberate.

AltKough 1939 has shown some

improvement, approximately 2 % percent

of the annual budget is spent on

repairs to damaged benches, landscaping

and structures of all sorts.

Most vandalism is caused by a small

minority of troublem akers who can

be controlled only by adequate policing.

With the exception of a few

parks in which special police precincts

are established, all facilities

are covered by police assigned from

adjacent precincts. The present undermanned

Police and Park forces

cannot cope with the problem.—

P o stal News


Another year of life has been given

to the federal eligible registers for

Substitute Post Office Clerk and

Substitute Post Office Carrier, the

manager of the 2nd U. S. District

Civil Service Commission announced

this week. The lists have already

been in existence for four years,

and a large number of men remain

on the registers.

According to officials of the Commission,

the lists for Post Office jobs

are actually preferable for their purposes

than entirely new ones would

be because as the ages of the men

increase, they become progressively

le.ss likely to be drafted.

There are three main lists, divided

by groupings of the five New York

City boroughs. While appointments

have moved slowly from the lists,

and may continue to because of the

international situation, some hope is

held out for appointments because of

vacancies caused by the selective

service program.

Many large groups of postal work-

■ers, formerly eiigaged exclusively on

work involving foreign business, especially

with Italy, have now been

asslEjned to other duties. Thus the

normal turnover in the Department

has not resulted in a normal num ­

ber of new apnointments.

\dc^itional information for Postal

eligibles will appear rertularly in the

foinmns of The L eader.

P r o b a t i o n .

About tlie middle of last November,

The C iv il S ervice L eader carried an

item telling of the Executive Order

.agned by the President that cut to

six months the probationary period

of federal Civil Service employees.

So many inquiries have been received

just how, and to whom, this

order would apply, that we are reprinting

the actual orders on this

matter as promulgated by the Post

Office Department:

The following instructions are

for the guidance of postmasters at

Civil Servlc* Rule VII as

amended by the Executive Order

of November 7, 1940, provides that

the probationary period shall be

fixed at 6 months Instead of 1 year

as heretofore. In the circumstances

the probationary period for

substitutes will hereafter be 1,224

hours of substitute service instead

of 2,448 hours of substitute service.

The Civil Service Commission

in a recent circular has stated

that employees who had served 6

months of service (or the equivalent

in substitute hours) by January

15, 1941, are regarded as having

completed the period of probation.

Employees who had performed

1,224 hours or more service

on January 15, but less than

2,448 hours, completed their pro­

bationary period January 15, 1941. '

Pending the adoption of a suitable

form reporting the completion

of probation, postmasters should

submit reports on Form 1573 making

such necessary changes as to

r.how the efTlcIency ratings, etc..

for the following: 408, 816, and

1,224 hours of substitute service.

The motor vehicle employee is in

tight spot. He still suffers from the

Economy Act of 1930-31. Most employees

may have forgotten about

the notorious Economy Act, but the

Motor Vehicle employee feels it

forcefully to this day. Holding the

! title “substitute driver-mechanic,”

I the motor vehicle employee gets a

j lower rate of pay than he should; he

j must pay out of his own pocket for

, repairs to mail cars damaged while

in his care. This in addition to the

usual responsibilities shouldered by

other postal employees.

I To put an end to this intolerable

' situation, Senator Mead has intro-

1 duced a bill into the Senate (S.473),

' and a companion measure (H.R.2077)

t has been sent to the hopper by Con-*

gressman Cannery of Massachusetts.
