During the present month four carriers
have been dismissed from the poetofflce
force who were under civil service rules.

Orandy, who has a wife and two ohll
dren, la now at work on a farm outside

enters the service. Orandy waa 40 when
he went to work four years ago. It is
charged that If the department had no
Idea of allowing these men to come In
because of the age limit. It had no right
to take them on as aubcarriert knowing
that they expected promotion.
