6. All applicants must be under the age
of 52 as of July 1, 1951.
Any employee of the Department, the
Staff or the Reserve who does not meet
these qualifications on July 1, 1951, but
who expects to meet them on or before
Jan. 1, 1954, will be permitted to submit
an application for designation for examina-
tion. A deadline of Nov. 1, 1951, has been
established for the receipt of applications.
Applicants wishing to be examined during
the present calendar year, however, must
submit applications not later than June 29,
1951.-from Department of State Bulletin,
May 14.
Applicants for Regular Foreign Service
The State Department's Personnel Examin-
ing Panel has indicated that it will not
consider applicants over 46 years of age
presently occupying positions FSS-3 and
below. It will consider personnel up through
the age of 50 only if such employees are
presently occupying FSS-1 or -2 positions.
Personnel failing to meet these age require-
ments cannot be considered by the panel for
a regular Foreign Service Staff Corps ap-
pointment.-from HICOG Daily Bulletin
No. 198.
Statutory Leave
Time limitations on statutory leave travel
are being revised in accordance with recent
instructions from the Department of State:
(1) Statutory leave travel authorizations
are valid for an indefinite period and an
employee is therefore not required by law
to commence or terminate his travel by
any given date. The time during which an
employee takes leave, remains subject, of
course, to the convenience of the organiza-
tion. However, if the employee or a member
of his family has not commenced travel by
the end of the fiscal year (June 30) in which
the authorization was issued, the authoriza-
tion should be returned to the Transporta-
tion Branch, Opeirating Facilitiles Divi-
sion, HICOG, for reissuance and-extension.
(2) Members of an employee's family may
commence travel on or after the effective
date of the authorization but not later than
one year after the date on which the em-
ployee himself has completed his travel
pursuant to the authorization. (If family
members precede an employee, the travel
costs must still be paid by the employee,
subject to later reimbursement after he
commences travel.)
(3) There is no given date by which the
family members must complete their travel
under a statutory leave authorization.-from
HICOG Daily Bulletin No. 195.
Administrative instruction L-1 provides
that eligible employees may be authorized
from 30 to 60 days of statutory leave in the
United States. The principle underlying
statutory leave is that, in order properly to
represent the United States abroad, a For-
eign Service employee should periodically
spend a certain minimum period of time in
the United States. To that end, the Govern-
ment has established a liberal annual leave
accrual policy for the Foreign Service, as
well as undertaking to pay the travel and
subsistence expenses involved in statutory
leave.
Any employee who takes less than the
minimum period of 30 days' leave in the
United States, unless officially directed in
writing by the State Department or by
HICOG to return to his post prior to that
time, shall therefore be regarded as not
having traveled in accordance with the
terms of his travel authorization. He may ac-
cordingly be held personally liable for all
travel and subsistence expenses incurred.
-from HICOG Daily Bulletin No. 199.
D-Mark Per Diem within Germany
The attention of all HICOG American
and local employees is invited to Admini--
strative Instructions, Chapter T 6-Travel,
effective May 1, 1951. It is requested that
both HICOG American and local employees
carefully study those portions referring to
D-Mark reimbursement for travel solely
within Germany in order to facilitate prompt
payment of travel vouchers. In particular,
the following points should be observed:
(1) Both HICOG American and local em-
ployees claiming DM 25 per day shall
vertify on the voucher as to the availability
or non-availability of US or Allied gov-
ernmental hotel and messing facilities.
(2) The "Recommended for Approval"
space on Foreign Service Form No. 286,
Public Voucher for Reimbursement of
Travel and Other Expenses" shall bear the
typewritten name and official title of the
approving officers designated in Section
1-9 of the basic instructions.
(3) The approving officers designated in
Section 1-9 apply to local employees as
well as American employees.
(4) All per diem vouchers should be trans-
mitted for payment with two (2) copies of
the travel order and an original and four
(4) copies of Foreign Service Form No. 286.
(5) Per diem vouchers should be trans-
mitted for payment not later than thirty
(30) days following the completion of travel.
