The Civil Service Superannuation Act (chapter 24, revised statutes, 1927) provides that superannuation allowance shall be based on the average salary of the contributor during the last five years or ten years of his service, depending upon which part of the act applies. The act further provides that in the case of a contributor to whom part III applies, that is, one who on July 19, 1924, was subject to the provisions of part I of the Civil Service Superannuation and Retirement Act, his allowance shall not be less than that to which he would have been entitled if he had continued to be subject to said part I of the Civil Service Superannuation and Retirement Act. Under the provisions of that act, the basis is the average yearly salary during the last three years of service. In no case is provision made for a civil servant to choose particular years for the purpose of determining the average salary to be used as a basis of superannuation allowance.
