Executive Order 5775—Transfer of Miners in the Bureau of Mines, with Their Positions, from the Noncompetitive to the Competitive Service
Paragraph 4, Subdivision I, Schedule B, which reads as follows, and which excepts miners in the Bureau of Mines from competitive examination under the civil- service rules, is hereby revoked:
4. Miners, whether employed in rescue or first-aid work at rescue stations, on rescue cars, or at experimental mines, under the Bureau of Mines: Provided, That should the Civil Service Commission at any time have reason to believe that the privilege so afforded is abused it may revoke it.
