Sam in the local post office as ;- cler^. l , ; Au4 ; ^own through the . years up >lo> th? present, Mart J. McCall, 1006 OB. State, has • served .'« that capacity under many and varied postmasters. On January 1st the government will retire Mart" on a pension •in appreciation tif his services during the thirty years. • Ray iLadendorf Steps In . When Mart finishes that days v wprk along the the year' and takes his hat and coat and with a farewell to the boys • steps out of the .nost off'' n e for good, Ray Ladendorf will step up a notiiti ana. into the routine of Mart's job. Thus is a v?ican- cy created ^an* acme applicant, after pasawjr certain civil service examinations, will fill that vacancy. And therefore, applications and part'culars as to the, job will be provided by merely asking for them, at the local post office. The job pays 65c an hour and is designated as substitute clerk-carrier. _ In the Meantime After having followed a certain routine day in and day out for th-'Tty years Mart is going to have some trouble settl- i ing down tp taking things easy, arid,- perhaps, same days he may be found starting for the old Job in the morning.
