OPINION BY FLOOD, J.

Appellant Dudley brought this appeal from the denial of his claim for unemployment compensation for the weeks of October 18th and 25th and November 1, 1959. The Unemployment Compensation Board of Review denied his claim on the ground that the claimant failed without good cause to apply for suitable work as prescribed by the Unemployment Compensation Law, Act of December 5, 1936, P.L. (1937) 2897, Art. IV, § 402(a), as amended, 43 PS § 802(a).

He thereafter indicated for the first time that the job was for wholesale selling and he had done only retail selling and that the wages were not as high as the bureau had told him they were and that he would have had to pay automobile expenses. The testimony does not indicate how he learned these things other than his having spoken to the employer a year previously.
