Executive Order 2657
The provision of the civil-service rules limiting reinstatements to one year is waived in the case of Mr. George B. Taylor, who voluntarily resigned from a position of chief of division in office of the Secretary of War on April 27,1916.
Since Mr. Taylor resigned from the War Department he has been continuously engaged in disbursing and accounting work. The Secretary of War expresses the opinion that his knowledge of Government estimates, financial records, disbursements, and accounts, and the practice under the various laws and regulations affecting them make his case one in which it would be primarily for the benefit of the Government to employ his services in the emergent conditions confronting the War Department.
