INFORMATION OF POSTMASTERS
The United States Civil Service
Commission has sent out to (he post
masters of the country an urgent ap
peal for typewriter operators and
stenographers to enter the govern
ment service at once. Postmasters
of Maul have received copies of this
appeal, with full information to pros
pective applicants, and the MAUI
NEWS has been requested to give the
matter fullest publicity, urging steno
graphers or typewriters, or both
combined, to apply to the postmasters
for further particulars and to take
the examinations shortly to be held
in Honolulu. The letter to postmast
ers is as follows:
United States Civil Service Commis
sion, Washington, D. C.
One of the serious' war problems
with which this Commission is en
gaged is that of supplying a sudicient
number of typewrter operators and
stenographers to meet the unusual
demands of the departments at
Washington, I). C.
In connection with a nation-wide
campa'gn to secure applicants for
these positions, the Commission has
arranged with exhibitors of motion
pictures throughout the country to
show on their screens a lantern slide
announcing this need of the Govern
ment. The announcement directs
persons who are interested to apply
to the representative of the U. S.
Civil Service Commiss''on at the local
post otlice. The Commission has a
board of examiners in each city which
has a first or second class post office,
but some of the motion picture
theaters are located in towns having
third class post offices. In case in
quiry should be made at your oliice
concerning stenographer and type
writer positions in the civil service,
or any other classified positions, it
is requested that the inquiries be in
formed that full information and in
etructiona may be had by writing to
the U. S. Civil Service Commission,
Washington, D. C, or to the Secretary
of the U. S. Civil Service Board at Dos

This need of the Government is a
vital one; the successful prosecution
of America's greatest undertaking
depends upon an efficient civil service
no less than upon the armed forces.
Literally thousands of stenographers
and typewriters are required. Those
who have not the necessary training
are -urged to undergo instruction at
once, for the need will continue in
definitely. Women especially are thus
offered an opportunity to help the
Government. Men also- are needed,
of course. Examinations are held
every Tuesday in the 450 cities nam
ed in the inclosed announcement. The
entrance salaries range from $1,000
to $1,200 a year. Promotion is reas
onably rapid for those whose services
If you can spare the time to in
terest residents of your community in
this matter you will help America to
win the war. It is desired that pub
lishers of newspapers be asked to in
sert a notice from time to time free
of charge; that individuals be ap
proached when there is opportunity
for personal appeal; that the matter
be brought to the attention of the
public in every proper manner that
is available without expense to
the Commission. Please dis
play the inclosed blue poster in
your office and keep the other an

JOHN A. McILHENNY,
The latest American church device
for "raising the wind" is what a re
ligious paper describes as "some collection-box."
The inventor hails from
Oklahoma. If a member of the con
gregation drops in a twenty Ave cent
piece or a coin of larger value, there
is silence. If it is a ten-cent piece a
bell rings, a five-cent piece sounds a
whistle, and a cent fires a blank car
tridge. If any one pretends to be
asleep when the box passes, it awak
ens him with a watchman's rattle, and
a kodak takes his portrait. London

regard to the tour of this island the

was spent with Commissioner D. C

pal of the Kamehameha III School at
Laha'na, also greeted the party. This
school building is delightfully situated
near the shore and is attractive in a
.number of respects. It has a partic
ularly well equipped kitchen and
domestic science department.
"At Olowalu they found Miss Maria
Piiko', for long successful teacher at
the Royal School, carrying the same
enthusiasm and successful methods

Maunaolu Seminary, Hamakuapoko,
Maui High, Paia, SpreckelsvUIe, Puu

of Mr. Lindsay.

missing the party at a number of
places. The schools on both islands
however, showed no lack of careful
