According to tile statement of Sena
Lor Dial, as pulbliShe~d in Tile Con
Tressional Record, oflce brokerage is Ic
par't of tihe Tolber't system. Says the a
cenator uplonl this poinst: "The prloof 9

One of Tolbert's referees was re

mner followers states Tolbert admit

is submitted to the ilb-coimiiittee an

Another claige relates to alleged
Voritism ald discri mitiat ion against

fal says: "Mr. Tolbert's conduct

Mr. Tolbeit has issued a general
enial of the charges against him
ith reference to postmaster alppolint
ients, but Senator Dial lits submitted

r alleged favoritism. For instance, in
reenville two ex-soldlers and one
Ivilian competed for the postimaster

er cent plus -five for' soldier prefer

is nepliew over a veteran -with a high
r rating. :In Clinton he named a
ephlew by marriage over a veteran,
ut 'in 'this case the nephew had the
iglest rating of the three. Ii Ker
haw lie liamed llis own favorite over

r the three even without the flive per

ioncrete instances. Ar. Tolbeit meets
