THE SURVIVORS

An Eligible List of 208 Men for Patrolmen

Seven Hundred and Forty-eight Applied, but less than Thirty percent
Passed the Three Required Examinations of the Civil Service.

The Civil Service Commision to-day submits an eligible list of 208
men who have successfully passed the various examinations for patrolmen.
It is interesting to note the results of the sifting process of civil
service. There were 748 applicants for admission to the force. Of
these 37 failed to appear for physical examinations, 400 failed to pass
it and 311 got through all right. Next came the athletic examinations.
Six failed to appear and 21 failed. That left 282 who got safely past
this point. Next came the mental examinations when nearly a quarter of
them dropped out, leaving 208 surviviors.

The list of the 208 successful men is as follows:
