the suggestions discussed yesterday at
the session of the Joint convention of

their appointment Is entirely political.
they are not permitted to take an ac
tlve Interest In politics, an Inactive po

poatmsater to assume. At the as me
time It was contended thst If politics
was entirely eliminated from a quality
ncldent to an appointment the btialneas
of the office would be better sttended to.

days, because th public no longer de
manded such service. President B. V
