PAOTTWO BITTHEVTLUS (ARK.)' OOTJRIWR MOWBAT, MC. i, GOP Senators Swamped With Jobseeker Mail '•• By JOE WASHINGTON «V- Offices oi Republican senators aro being »w»mped :wllh letters from Job ieekers eager to get on the federal payroll after 20 OOP years in (he political wilderness. The senators say they are •mazed. They had not looked for such a rush in a time oi generally booming business. Many of the senators say privately, they are sure most of the would-be* federal employes are going to be disillusioned—not only with \the limited number of job openings but also with the pay and qualifications. Most of (he • letters asked about the approximately 40,000 postmas- tershtps scattered throughout the country. One senator said Ills correspondents were surprised to lenrn these posts now are under civil serv See and that there is no llmlta tlon on the terms of the Incum bents. Postmasters now are named "without term." An aide to one GOP senator said he had been rul vised that this could be construct that the officials serve nt the plea sure of thePresident and arc re movable without cause If hi wishes. However, the Civil Service Com mission;-disputes this. It contend the postmasters have full tenur until death or resignation and iu removable only for cause. At.the moment, Job seekers' let ters are go'rig Into files pending decision as to how Republican pa rohage Is to he handled. One senator said - no word ha been received on this as yet fron Elsenhower headquarters. Herber BrowrieU, attorney general-deslg riate,; has-', been handling top-love appofntmenls but has not asked t receive applications for routin Jobs, this senator said. Another GOP source said he un derslood : Thomas E. • Stephens o New York,' chosen by Biscnhowe to b» his special counsel - at th While House, would be in charg of patronage. GOP senators who . have bee boning up'o'n patronage give thes reasons, why they think many Jo hunter* «re going- to be disn] pointed: , Federal clerical and slcnograp ' le workers in general do not^mak ly more than do comparable em- oyes In private business. Federal obs at these levels nre available ow, as there Is as much as a 5 per cent, annual turnover. • Living costs In Washington are > high that many persons actu- lly would lose money In coming the capital. . ' : A very high percentage of the i million' federal civilian Jobs e protected by civil service or omc form of merit system. . • . bout 95 per cent, the Civil Scrv- :b Commission estimates. The approximately 170,000 gov rnment Jobs which are not under lyll service nre mostly small ones, nd many also arc technical post- ions for which the .average Job ppllcant cannot qualify.
