THE EVENING ISILN. BALTIMORE. WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 26. 1930 WOULD CUT CITY FEES'"" Bring Back FOR PHYSICAL TESTS Councilman Musgrave Wants Charge Levied Only When Applicant Gets Job The move to aid the unemployed by restricting the city in charging fees for physical examination of applicants for positions in the city classified service is to be considered at a public bearing in the City Conncil chamber in the ear future. , A resolution introduced by Councilman Thomas L. A. Musgrave covers the subject. It would call for a modification of the rules of the City Service Commission that would permit the fee to be charged only when the applicant Is given a Job. Under the present arrangement the fee is exscted of every applicant , One dollar is the charge mads by the City Service Commission for the physical examination of each aspirant for a job in the classified civil service. $3,051 Receipts . , In 1929 the receipts from this source were $3,031, that number of applicants having been examined. In 1028 the total receipts for examinations were $3,406. This year, in ten and a bait months, the commission already bas collected about $3,500 in examination fees. It is estimated that the receipts for the whole year will be close to 14,000. This is considered a very high total, Inasmuch as the annual firemen's ex amination, which helps to swell the fees by several hundreds of dollars, will not be held this year- It is slated for early in January. Physician Appointed A physician, appointed by the com mission at an annual salary of $3,000, makes the examinations. For a time the examining physician got his com pensation from the fees, retaining all of them. Several years ago it was de cided to turn the receipts into the city treasury and put the examiner on a salary basis. . Physical examination of all applicants had been decided upon early in the history of the merit system to assure that men and women were physically fit for employment before they were allowed to take the mental tests. The question as to whether the city or, the applicants should pay the medical examination charge had been consid' .red at length by the City Service Com mission before the plan was put into effect. ! " View Of Commission It was the view of the body in office at that time that the taxpayers should not be required to pay for physical examinations, the sole purpose of which was to decide whether an applicant was physically fit for the kind of employment he or she was seeking. It was decided as fair that the aspirant for the posjtion pay the cost of qualifying physically. Physical examinations are also required of appli-cants for labor jobs at th Municipal Bureau now known as the Municipal Department of Employment, th former name having been given to the employment agency to be conducted by the Commission on Stabilization of Employment At the city's labor bureau, however, the examination is made and the dollar charged only when a job has been found for a client in one of the mu- Hicipal departments., The fee is deducted from the Inborer's first wage. The receipts from this charge average about $500 a year.

The invitation was sent by Mr. and Mrs. T. F. Jackson, who conduct a general merchandise store a1. Brown ing, Montana. Commissioner Skeptical The genial fire commissioner has been fishing and hunting for years and, although a photograph of the fur-bearing fish wss inclosed as proof, he is still somewhat skeptical. The 6sh, according to Mr. Jackson, was caught by J. H. Hicken, of Wbltefish, Montana. The story of the rare fish is passed on for what it is worth b Dr. Mc Oinity. The letter concerning the catch said that during a drop in tempera ture at the lake Hicken dropped several books overboard, but these were broken immediately upon touch ing the water. Finally, the letter said, one was heated, and when this bit the water, the temperature tempered the H I What it takes to "get there"! Its a far cry from the conquest of the air to the making of a good cigarette, but a certain "singleness of purpose" distinguishes both. Chesterfield takes the sure, straight course to the one goal that counts in a cigarette: milder and better taste: MILDNESS the wholly natural mildness of tobaccos that are without harshness or bitterness. better TASTE such as only a cigarette of wholesome purity and better tobaccos can have.
