Burleson to Be Asked About
Civil Service Appoint
ments.
Postmaster General Burleson was
brought under the direct flre of Con
gress yesterday when the House
passed a resolution by Representative
I^ehlbach. of New Jersey, calling on
the Postmaster General for lists of
postmasters hip vacancies and certifi
cations made to him by the Civil Serv
ice Commission of eligibles for ap
pointment to fill the vacancies. The
resolution was passed by a vote of -4i
to 22.
This action is the immediate out
growth of the situation in the Civil
Service Commission which resulted in
the forced resignation of two mem
bers of the Commission. Charles M.
Calloway, who recently retired from
the Commission, charged in a formal
statement that Burleson had ??de
bauched" the service by attempting to
influence the Commission in rating ap
plicants contrary to the policy laid
down in the Presidential proclama
tion placing first, second and third
class postmasters under Civil Service.
Republican members of the House
charged in the debate that the
Postmaster General had disregard
ed the ratings of the Civil Service
Commission and refused to submit
for appointment candidates with
the highest grades in a large num
ber of cases where the Civil Service
ratings did not conform to Burle
son's wishes.
The lists of vacancies and certifi
cations called for in the L#ehlbach
resolution will be made the basis of
an Investigation to be conducted by
the Committee on Reforms in the
Civil Service, of which I^ehlbach is
chairman.
"The purpose of this inquiry. *
I,ehlbach said, "is to ascertain how
widespread throughout the country
in the condition that is detrimental
to the efficiency of the Postoffice
Department, and which is the result
of the wilful and contumacious re
fusal of the Postmaster General to
obey the order of the President,
which dirccts that postmasters
shall be appointed upon the recom
mendations of the Civil Service
Commission.**

DOCTORS FIND
REMEDY FOR
COLDS AND FLU
Calotabs, the New Nausealew Cal
omel Tablets, Cat Short Colds
and May Prevent Flu By
Keeping Lirer Active.
Physicians have learned from expe
rience. during the epidemic of influen
kxH. that one of the most important
?factors in the prevention of flu and
Mieumonia is to keep the liver active
H that the digestive organs may be in
^Perfect working order and the sys
BTem thereby enabled to throw off colas.
Pcheck sore throat, and resist serious
F complications. For this purpose they
have found that the new. nausealess
calomel tablets called Calotabs, are
far more effective even than the old
style calomel, which was formerly the
universal favorite, as Calotabs do not
weaken the patient, nor interfere with
the appetite and digestion.
At the first sign of a cold or sore
throat, doctors recommend one Calo
tab at bed time with a swallow of wa
ter?that's all. No salts, no nausea,
nor the slightest interference with
your diet, pleasure or work. Next
morning you wake up feeling fine, your
*? liver is active, and your appetite is
keen for a good breakfast.
For your protection Calotabs are
sold only in original sealed packages,
price thirty-five cents. AH druggists
recommend and guarantee Calotabs.
