U. S. Markham to be Caddo Postmaster
President Coolidge, through the post office department, has nominated U. S. Markham to be Caddo postmaster for the four-year term beginning January 19 past. Mr. Markham is now acting postmaster since October.
This appointment was made upon the recommendation of W. B. Pine, who had the list of eligibles before him to select from. In letters to interested people he stated that he selected Mr. Markham because of two reasons: Mr. Markham’s administration since last October had been highly satisfactory to the post office department; and he stood highest on the list of eligibles as indicated by the civil service examination.
The nomination, no doubt, will be confirmed by the senate in the due course of business.
During Roosevelt’s and Taft’s administrations Mr. Markham was postmaster and gave satisfaction to the public, and since last October he has conducted the office in an admirable manner, so we have good reason to expect continued good service under his administration.
