Examination for Ap
prentice in G. P. 0.
to be Held
(By Edward L. Carter)-
The civil service commission an
nounces an 'open competitive examina
tion on March 26 for the appointment
of apprentices at the Government
Printing Office. The trades in which
instruction is given are printer, press
man, electrotyper, stereotyper, bind
er, photoengraver, and machinist. The
age limit is sixteen to nineteen years.
Persons who have seen service in the
army or navy are not restricted to age
limit. A postal card addressed to the
U. S. Civil Service Commission,
Washington, D. C., will bring all nec
essary information.
It is desired that a large number
of colored boys will take this exam
ination as an opportunity of this kind
is seldom offered. The greatest need
of the Negro in the United States is
the opportunity to learn to be me
chanics and business men. Our vo
cational end technical schools are
not producing results.
The first examination for appren
tice,* under the present administration
was held in March, 1922. Twenty-five
boys received appointments. The
writer was unable to learn whether
there were any colored- applicants.
Four colored boys were induced to try
in the second examination which Was
held in July, 1923. About seventy-five
persons took this examination from
which three colored boys and forty
- white boys received appointments.
FORMER ROSETIME PLAYERS TO
TAKE ROAD WITH NEW TITLE j
Despite the confusion brought about
by the indiscreet actions of two or
three leading members of the erst
while Rosetime Review which caused
a sudden cancellation of its recent en
gagement at the Howard Theatre, the
Company has been put back into the
running with a new title which will
mean more for its selling power than
its former title.
In addition to its new title, one!
of the most prominent female stage (
artists of this section of the country
has been engaged to play the leading
role which has never been done with
entire satisfaction since this pro
duction’s initial performance.
Thru the energetic efforts of Messrs
Chas. S. Johnson and Jas. R. Fletcher
the company has secured several sub
stantual bookings in the East, and
with special costuming by experienced
designers and special scenic and elec
trical effects by such Artists as Fred
B. Pelham and other members of the
colored branch of the stage employee’s
Alliance, the Promoters intend to
bring this production -to the highest
plane of real Musical Comedy pro
ductions.

Beautiful Girl
Reveals Secret
Once my hair was anything but
long and silky soft as it is now,
and my complexion was sallow,
and there were often unsightly
pimples on my face.
One day I heard of Exelento
Quinine Pomade for the hair and
purchased a jar. Almost imme
diately it stopped all dandruff,
made my hair grow long, soft and
fine, and gave it a delightful
sheen.
Because of the perfectly won
derful results I obtained from Ex
elento Quinine Pomade. I purchas
ed a jar of Exelento Skin Beauti
fier. It changed my sallow com
plexion to a • clear, lovely skin,
glowing with health. For pim
ples and other skin blemishes, it
has no equal.
If I am as beautiful as people
say, it is all due to Exelento prep
arations. Exelento Quinine Po
made and Exelento Skin Beauti
fier may be obtained for only 25?
at most drug stores, or will be
sent postpaid upon receipt of
price by the
