Three Die in Texas Hotel Fire KORT WORTH, Tex., (UP) A fire swept through n three-story! hotel on the south fringe of the Fort Worth business district early today, killing three persons and driving about 32 others into the street. • The three victims — one the elderly mother of the 60-year-old night room clerk — all apparently died of suffocation. The body of only one of them — an unidentified man weighing about i!OB pounds — was burned. Police Capt. K. I... Giles said the hotel register showed 16 rooms were taken for the night.

Downie. who ordered Hit Republicans Ask Senators for Jobs By JOE HALL WASHINGTON M — Offices of Republican senators are being swamped with letters from job seekers eager to get on the federal pavroll after 20 GOP years in the booming business. The senators say they arc amay.od. They had not looked for sucn a rush in a time of generally bormbin business. Many of the senators say privately they are sure most of the woulci-be federal employes are going to be disillusioned—not only with the limited number of job vised that this could bp construed that the officials serve at the pleasure- of the President and are removable without cause it he wishes. However, the Civil Service Commission disputes this. It contends the postmasters have full tenure until death or resignation and are IT.vox-able only for cause. At the moment, job seekers' letters are going into files pending a decision as to how Republican patronage is to be handled. One senator said no word had been received on this as yet from F.isenhower headquarters. Herbert Brownell. attorney general-designate, has been handling top-level ! appointments but has not asked to receive applications for routine jobs, this seantor s,aid. Another GOP source said he un ,"lersUH>d Thomas K. Stephens of New York, chosen by Kisenhower to be his special counsel at the While House, would be in charge of patronage. GOP senators who have been boning up on patronage give these reasons why they think many job hunters are going to be disappointed: Federal clerical and stenographic workers in general do not m'ako any more than do comparable em- ployes in private business. Federal Jobs at these levels are available now, as there is as much as a 3fi per cent annual turnover. Living costs in Washington are so high that many persons actually would lose money in coming to the capital. A very high percentage of the 2 million federal civilian jobs arc protected by civil service or some form of merti system. . . . about 93 per cent, the Civil Service Commission estimates. The approximately 170,000 government jobs which are not under civil service are mostly small ones and many also arc technical positions for which tin- average , ARKANSAS THE BIGGEST LITTLE STORE IN TOWN" i The wreckage and pagan aban-'thc Weslwood Club, said he had don of these celebrations led many j been receiving "reports as well as complaints about the dice game... for the past two H him employers to put out a flat or- dei : "No more Christmas parlies in the office.
