Executive Order 2660
Mr. Benajah D. Dyas may be appointed as a stock keeper in the competitive classified service in the Government Printing Office without examination.
Mr. Dyas was elected to represent the Joint Committee on Printing, effective October 15, 1913, and has been stationed at the Government Printing Office since that date, serving on boards of inspection and condemnation and on the specification committee which fixes the standard requirements for all paper used in the office. As a member of these boards he has been required to pass upon all equipment and supplies purchased by the office, representing an expenditure of several million dollars annually. He has gained expert knowledge of paper stock, materials, and supplies, and his employment will be of great advantage and saving to the office. The printing office is in urgent need of the expert services of Mr. Dyas, such need being increased by the recent loss by death of a stock keeper and by the relinquishment of several experienced employees for service with the War Department.
In view of the facts the Civil Service Commission concurs in a recommendation for the order.
