of personal sympathy and interest.

Yesterday was "Associated Chari
ties Sunday.” Not a few of the min
isters of the city took occasion to
commend the work <>f the society
from their pulpits Borne spoke as
active volunteers who knew the work
at first hand. One conference, that
in Georgetown, of which Mrs. Fred
erick Mclieynolds is chairman and
Miss Louise Harlow is District work

These are Rev. C. B. Austin, pastor
of West Washington Baptist Church;

••(•rent Charitable Work.'’
Rev. J. H. W. Blake of Christ
Church. Georgetown, paid a special
tribute yesterday to the work of the
society, as did Rev. J. S. Moses, who
spoke in part as follows:
“Inasmuch as a good many mem
bers of St. John's parish are already
conversant with the work of the As
sociated Charities, I do not need tu
say very much in regard to the an
nual appeal which is now being car
ried on. The work of the Associated
Charities is unquestionably one of
the great charitable works in the
city and in the community. Its chief
objects are tiie holding together of
homes and the putting in of relief
into families when and where neces
sary. I wish to call to your atten
tion the fact of tiie annual spring ap
peal and its outstanding request that
10.000 contributing members join the
organization before the end of the
current week "
Contributions should be sent to the
treasurer. Howard S. Iteeside, Social
Service House, 923 H street north
Dana Declares Postmasters Should
Be Eligible List Leaders.
The person standing highest on the
civil service eligible list should lie
named postmaster at first, second and
third class post offices, according to a
letter sent to President Harding by
Richard Dana, president <>f the Na
tional Civil Service Reform League,
who asks that the practice of making
“political appointments” be ended.
The letter declared that during the
entire period of Dr. Work's adminis
tration as Postmaster General the
three candidates standing the highest
In the civil service commission’s ex
aminations "were submitted to the
members of Congress of the dominant
party, and this has resulted, as it was
anticipated it would result, in making
the appointments political."
Postmasters appointed. Mr. Dana
said, "are immediately immersed in
politics, and are expected to do. and
do. render political service to the
party in power,” such activity serious
ly interfering with their official du
ties and increasing the expense of
operating the postal service.
