Executive Order 8217—Exemption of George Middleton From Compulsory Retirement for Age
Whereas, in my judgment, the public interest requires that George Middleton, senior commodity specialist (lace), United States Tariff Commission, who was exempted from compulsory retirement for age for a period of one year by Executive Order No. 7978 of September 19, 1938, be further exempted from such compulsory retirement for a period of six months:
Now, Therefore, by virtue of and pursuant to the authority vested in me by section 204 of the act of June 30, 1932, 47 Stat. 382, 404 (U.S.C., title 5, sec. 715a), I hereby further exempt the said George Middleton from compulsory retirement for age for a period of six months ending March 31, 1940.
