Executive Order 1335

It is hereby ordered that the following persons, viz: Campbell, W. V., Pennsylvania; Enright, M. J., Ohio; Proffit, S. G., Virginia; Seitz, C. E., Pennsylvania; Tarbell, Harry, Colorado; Pinchback, P. B. S., District of Columbia, who are temporarily employed as internal-revenue agents, specially designated to examine the books of the corporations in connection with the special excise tax on corporations, may be appointed as classified employees in the Internal Revenue Service without compliance with the civil-service rules.

These six men have shown that they can perform this work in a manner entirely satisfactory to the Government and the taxpayers. The Secretary of the Treasury and the Commissioner of Internal Revenue recommend this action. The Civil Service Commission declined to concur in the recommendation of the Secretary of the Treasury.

For the reasons stated in the letter of the Secretary of the Treasury of April 13 the objection of the Civil Service Commission is overruled and this order is made.
