Howard Hardware ALCJONA, IOWA "A Friendly Store in a Friendly City" WESLEY GIRL DUPED OF $80 Civil Service Course No Assurance of Job, Post Office Warns A young woman from the Wesley vicinity walked into the Algona postoffice, the other day, and told postoffice workers that she was ready to go to work. After some discussion, it developed that the young lady had paid $80 for a correspondence course in "How to get a Civil Service Job" or something like that, had been assured she would get the job, but definitely misinformed. M. J. McCall points out that the public is often misled by claims of correspondence schools, trying to sell courses in civil service. Government positions are in no way certain because of a correspondence school, and any like the Wesley girl, who paid $80 and thought they had a job, are sadly mistaken. Government warnings are being Issued that no school of this type Is able to fulfill Its promises, and none of the schools In any way represent the U. S. government, nor do they have government sanction, the bulletin warns. Caution is particularly made against schools that claim their courses are required In order to take examinations for U. S. civil service, and that they are given advance Information about the tests. Anyone can obtain without charge, all necessary information about all civil service examinations by writing the secretary of the U. S. Civil Service Board, care of any first or second class postoffice, or direct to the U. S. Civil Service Commission, Washington, D. C.
