Ten out of 29 men aspiring for jobs

one look at the scope of a. civil service
examination arranged for the appli
cants yesterday, and politely bade Civil
Service Secretary MacLean "good-day."
The others bolstered up courage and

The test began with a strict medical
examination and ended with a 10-min-utes'

furnaces, with plenty of strength and
endurance tests mixed in between. '
Five Found Physically Unfit.
Of the 29 who took the physical ex
amination five were found unfit for va
rious reasons-. The others went to the
Multnomah Athletic Club, where ar
rangements had been made for muscle
The first stunt was for the applicant
to lie flat on his back, stretch his arms
out full length over his head, pick ud
a 35-pound dumbbell and raise to a sit
ting position, bringing the weight up
with him. He then lowered it back in
the same- way. He had to do this stunt
three times straight without stopping.
Finishing with this, the applicant was
required to "muscle" a 25-pound weight
with his left arm and then with his
right. Then he was required to pick
up a 56-pound weight and lift It at
arm's length over his head.
- Staggering Heat Is One Test.
In the afternoon the scene of testing
was transferred to the incinerator. Each
applicant was required to go. Into the
furnace-rooms and "pull down the fires"
for 10 minutes.
The furnaces were blasted to 170 de
grees, and the stoking process brought
the applicants into a staggering heat
Nearly all of those who had gotten this
far along In the examination stood up
under this strain. Twenty men were
left when the test was concluded.
Now each applicant has to go through
an oral examination. Those who suc
