Executive Order 1329


Mr. W. E. Shields may be reinstated to a classified position in the Government Printing Office. The Public Printer stated that Mr. Shields was separated from the service by reason of misconduct; that he has been sufficiently punished. His reinstatement is requested and recommended by the Joint Committee on Printing Investigation of Congress as in the public interest. The Civil Service Commission does not recommend the reinstatement. After full consideration it is ordered that the civil-service rules be suspended and that Mr. Shields be reinstated to the classified position in the Government Printing Office from which he was separated.
