As amended the paragraph will read as follows:

Any person may be retransferred to a position in which he was formerly employed, or to any position to which transfer could be made therefrom, if since his transfer he has been continuously in the executive or judicial civil service of the United States, or of its insular possessions; or if he entered the classified service upon competitive examination, and the legislative service by transfer therefrom, and is found by the commission to have served continuously and satisfactorily. Such retransfer may be made without compliance with clauses (b), (c), (d), and (e) of section 8 of this rule.
