U. S. Rules on Navy Yard Men
The United States Civil Service Commission has made a ruling that employes of a navy yard may hold small salaried positions in municipal Fire Departments provided that this does not interfere with the discharge of the federal duties of the men. The ruling was made after the status of eighteen members of the Portsmouth Fire Department and members of the Kittery, Me., Fire Department serving as call men while employed at the navy yard was called into question. Rear Admiral Cyrus W. Cole, of the Portsmouth, N. H., Navy Yard, requested a ruling on the matter from Washington. D. C.
