The 1949 A World War I veteran, old Charles G. Christiansen, has a sick leave record of which he can well be proud, according to Lowell Sandberg of the Civilian Guard Section. He reports that Christiansen, also of the Civilian Guard force, has been employed by the 53-ye- ar government for seven years and three months and has used only one day of sick leave in that entire period of time. And that one day was taken off on sick leave after a minor operation. He so arranged his day off (or days off) that when he underwent the operation it was necessary for him to only use one day of sick leave to fully recuperate. .
