1919.] SERVICE AND REGULATORY ANNOUN~CEM:nENTs. 103
AMENDMENT TO CIVIL-SERVICE RULES GRANTING PREFEREN-
TIAL RIGHTS TO SOLDIERS, SAILORS, MARINES, ETO.
The urgent deficiency act approved July 11, 1919, provides that hereafter in
making appointments to clerical and other positions in the executive branch olf
thle Government in the District of Columbia or elsewhere preference shall be griven~
to honorably discharged soldiers, sailors, andi marines, and widows of such, andcl
to the wives of injuredl soldiers, sailors, and marines w~ho themselves are noot
qualified, but whose w\ives are qualified, to hlold such position." This sup~ersed.l~
section 1754-, Revisedc Statute~s, which gave preference only to those disc~h;rre~ll
for disability of service origin.
In conformity with the new prov'ision of law the civil-service rules have bee~n
amended by an Executive order issued Augulst 18, 1919, so as to cite thie uent~l
deficiency act in lieu of the: earlier law.
Section 5 of Rule V is amended to read as follows: The commission mayg,
with the approval of the proper appointing officer, change by regulation the
existing age limits for entrance to the examinations under these rules; but
persons preferred under the urgent detidlency act of July 11, 1919, mayJT be
examined without regard to age."
Section 2 of Rule VI is amended to read asu follows: All competitors ratedl
at 70 or more shall be eligible for appointment, and their unmnes shall be p~laced~
on the proper register according to their ratings; but the namles of persons pre-
ferred under the urgent deficiency act of Julyr 11, 1919, rated at 65 or more,
shall be placed above all others."'
COOPERATION WITH FEDERAL, BOARD FOR VOCATIONAL EDU-
CATION IN THE TRAINING OF DISABLED SOLDIERS, SAILORS,
The following is an abstract of a memorandum prepared by the Fedleral
Board for Voentional Education after consultation with representatives of the
Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, and L~abor, and the Civil Service Comr-
mission. The scheme outlined therein meets wpiith the full approval of this
department, and all bureaus, divisions, and offices are authorized and direlctrd
by the Secretary of Agriculture to coopyerate wvith the Federal board to the
fullest possible extent in the plan for trailing disabled sollldiers, sailors, and
The Federal Civil Servilce regu~latic~ns have been nmenrl ed- by an Execurtive
order of the President. The regulations, as amlondedl, place upon the Federal
Board for Vocaltional Edlucaction the! respons~~ilibilit of testing, training, anad cer-
tifying to, the Unitedl States C'ivil Service Comnmission diisabled soldiers, sailors,
and marines who desire to enter civil-serviet employment. Arrangements for
meeting this changed situationl have b~een work~lell out byr representatives of the
Federal Board and the United States C'ivil Service Comisln~~ion anzd stated inr a
publication of the Fedetral Bol.ardl designa;ted as C. L. H. 55. Copies of this cir-
cular letter can he obtained by addcre~ssing the Federal Bocardl for Vocational
Education, W6ashingto~n, D. C.
The amended regulations permit thne Civil Se~rvice Commission to exempt a
disabled soldier, sailor, or masrine from the lhysical requirementss. providing
he has been tested or trained and~ certified by the Fet~le~ral Boardl~ for Yocational
Education. The Executive orderr also permits the Federal Board to utilize Glov-
ernment facilities andl services of Federal officers and employees in the execu-
tion of this prov~ision.
You are permitted and authorized to ar~range w\ith agents of the :Federal
Board to try out disabled soldiers, sailors, andl marines byi a practical test on
the job to determine if the disabled mian has the physical ab~ility to perform the
workr required. If the test indientes that the man can qualify physically, you
are authorized to arrange with the Feder~al Board to train the man on the

job for the work he is to perform, providing this kind of training, in the opin-
ion of the Federal Board, is desirable and feasible and, in your opinion, is not
seriously detrimental to the public service. If such training is deemed to be
seriously detrimental to the public service, a detailed report giving the reasons
for this decision should be made to the Federal Board, which may submit this
report to the department concerned for conference as to the fmal disposal of
the case. Most cases after a try-olut for plhysical ability will be trained in
established institutions offering suitable coc'urses. Probably not a very large
number of cases will need to be tried out by a practical test. of physical ability.
This question can usually be determined through the joint action of the Frederal
Board and the United States Civil Service Commissio~n.
This is simply and solely a try-out and training proposal of the Federal
Board and does not imply that the person being tried out for physical ability
or trained to perform the detailed w~ork of a position will be placed in the
specific position in which he is tried out or trained, but in a like Desition else-
where by regular methods under the amended civil-service regulations and
Vocational Rehabilitation Act.
MIen being tried out or trained as set forth herein wrill receive no remunera-
tionl fromn the Government other than thle stipulated sumis paid by the Federal
Board under the provisions of the amended Vocational Rehabilitation Act.
Any arrangements entered into for placement training should be submitted
to thle Federal Board fo:r \'ocational Education, WCashington, D. C., through the
Federal Board district office. Before any further action is taken, the Fedleral
Board, through a designated represenutive, will confer with the person delegated
by the department concernedl to~ r'elesent it in these matters. If th~e aglre~e-
ment receives the joint applroval of the department representative andl the Fedl-
ral Board, the placement training can begin under the agreement.
No~ further formal arrangements w~ill b:e required to> test or try out a man's
physical ability to do the worki of a specilled job. This can be done by mutual
necletment between the local rep~resenrtatives of thle Federal Board and the G;ov-
ernment agency concerned. "' Test an~d try-o~ut enses need to be referredl to
W~ashington only when it is :impIossible for local representatives to atgree or
when the test is likrely to be pr~olonged so that it amounts in reality to placemlent

106 BUREAU OF ANIMAL INDUSTRY. [Beptember,
The law relative to the penalty privilege, embodied in section 496, Postal
Laws and Regulations, provides that--
"Any department or officer authorized to use the penalty envelopes may in-
close them with return address to any person or persons from or through whom
official information is desired, the same to be used only to cover such official
information and indorsements relating thereto."'
The Post Office Department points out that this provision is applicable only
in cases where person are requested to furnish offielal information desired
by a department or officer of the Gove~rnmuent, and does not contemplate that
penalty envelopes or cards shall be furnished to enable persons to mail free
of postage requests for publications which the persons may desire. Such re-
quests," the Post Office Departmient adds, "L do not constitute official informa-
tion within the meaning of the statute quoted, but clearly relate to the per-
sonal business of the individuals making the requests. The requests are, con-
sequently, properly chargeable w~ith postnge, and it would seem that the persons
suffciently interested in any publications which a department or officer of the
Government may have to distribute should be willing to pay postage on re-
quests therefore "
It is suggested by the Post Office Departmuent that if, for any reason, it may
be deemed desirable to furnish post enrds with reply address for the convenience
of the pubtle in ordlerinlg governmental publications, this may be done, provided
the penalty indic~ia be omitted and in lieu thereof the words Place postage
stamp here or some similar inscription be printed in the upper right corner
of the address side of the cards in the space where it is customary to affix
stampsl~ in payment of postage.
All ofticers: and emlployeets of the bu~rrau will be governed accordingly.
