Washington, Nov. 5. To the

Washington with the main idea of
devoting three or four years to equip

the schools in Washington showr an
increased enrollment this year. This
is due to the great influx incident to

clerks, index and catalog clerks, and
clerks qualified in statistics or ac
counting, as "well as clerks qualified
in business administration for the
office of the Ordnance department of
the Army are in demand.
The representatives of the Federal
civil service commission at the post
offices in all cities are receiving num
erous inquiries from persons who
wish to be at the seat of govern

to have a part in the actual admin
