§ Mr. DICKINSON
asked how many vacancies at present exist in the Board of Education in the ranks of staff clerks and minor staff clerks, respectively; how long these vacancies have existed; and when it is anticipated that they will be filled?
There is one vacant staff clerkship and one minor staff clerkship. The former post has been vacant since the 4th October, 1912, and the latter since the 7th March, 1913. I have been in communication with the Treasury as to certain objections which they raised to the filling of the posts, but I hope to be able to make appointments to both before long.
