ISSUE WARNINGS IN CIVIL SERVICE 'SHORT COURSE' Miss Norton Is Rotary Speaker Miss tternice Norton, Algona young lady who has been teaching for the past six yeara at Ketch- ikun, Alaska, spoke to Kotariaiu Monday noon, ou Iff* in the territory. Al Peterson, past president, was given a rousing cheer and a song, and special honors, as tribute waa paid to one of the club's earliest Past Presidents. LuVerne Women Take Straw Vote LuVerne: That women take an interest in politics, waa proven by fact here last week at a meeting of th« J. J. Club Friday afternoon, in the home of Mrs. Harry LIcbty. A straw vote wag conducted by the committee in charge, headed by Mrs. H, D. Meyer and Mrs. Carl Qoetacb and Roosevelt received eight votes and Landon four. A warning has been issued by Postmaster W. W. Sullivan, to the effect that subscribing for a "civil service correspondence course" is no guarantee that the person taking the course will be able to get into government service. His warning was issued because several complaints and reports have been made to the local post- office about men selling such courses in this vicinity. None of them have any government authorization or approval, and in fact the government has warnings posted in the local office against such courses. Solicitors give no promise of a job in writing, but in some cases have given verbal promises. When the subscriber to the course receives their contract, a line at the bottom says "not responsible for verbal representations of salesmen" which eliminates liability on the part of the company. Postmaster Sullivan urges anyone visited by the solicitors to bring them to the poatoffice, if possible. ERNEST PETERSON—Repub- ican candidate for supervisor, third district.
