    WINS OVER 15,OOO
    Leavenworth high school scores again with another lad who wins a good position. Melvin V. Love, L.H. S. junior, was one of the very few out of 1500, who competed in a civil service exam, to win a job. He has been appointed to the position of junior assistant technician at Fort Worden at CCC Camp 7, at a salary of $1020 a year. His duties are of supervisory nature at CCC camps but the appointment is a regular civil service appointment and he is not subject to CCC regulations, although living at camp. Melvin has been completing his junior year at L.H. S. by correspondence and planned, when he left here, a month ago, to return next fall for his senior year. He is a capable young fellow and the civil service appointment is recognition of his abilities.

    Notes 
    • BIRTH: Records from Bible of Dora May Abbott.

      BIRTH NOTE: John Albert Love officiated the the birth of this child. Due to circumstances "beyond their control" the doctor who had agreed to come and had been notified, failed to arrive. As for this youngest son, he had no intention to start his career in life by being "late" instead very insistent upon being right "right on time".
