carry sensible merchandise at sensible prices. We have great new stocks of this

Uncle Sam Says:
"Begin Christmas Shopping Now"
To make a beginning at once is the least any of us can do. Better carry Christmas buying as
far on towards completion as possible. There must be no congestion of the country's trans
portation facilities in the latter part of December all Christmas shopping should be finished
at the latest very early in December and all gift packages must be mailed or expressed not
later than December 5.
Do your shopping so far as possible during the earlier hours of the day. Carry home packages whenever pos
sible. Avoid special deliveries, except in urgent cases. By doing these things and by confining gifts to sensi
ble things, except such gifts as are intended for children, you will be following the Government's injunctions and
helping in a vital way. We earnestly bespeak your whole-hearted co-operation..

MESf jy FRANCE Next of kin only or authorized holders of Christmas Parcel Labels to be received from mem
bers of the American Expeditionary Forces in -France (soldiers, sailors, marines) can send ONE Christmas package
to the person designated on the Christmas Parcel Label. Package must be mailed before November 15 In a Sx4x3
inch container furnished by the Red Cross, and contents must not weigh over 2 lbs. 15 oz. unwrapped.

want to send after testing them out for packing in sample containers that we
have made up to the proper measurements and which, with various suggestions
of articles and prices, can be seen at our Army and Navy Shop.
MEN I.V SIBERIA Christmas packages for American soldiers in Siberia should be in the malls before Octoher 2R.
More than one package may be sent each soldier if desired, but no package should weigh more than 7 pounds. Each
package should bear, besides the soldier's name and regiment, the words "American Expeditionary Forces in Siberia."
A list of suitable articles and prices will be found at our Army & Navy Shop.
MEN IN THE NAVY The Navy Department has authorized the sending of Christmas packages to men in the Navy
at home or abroad, provided that (1) Packages forwarded by Parcel Post must comply with the Postal Regulations
and should be enclosed in substantial boxes with hinged or screw-top cover to facilitate opening and inspection.
(2) Boxes shipped by express are limited to 20 pounds in weight, should measure not more than 2 cubic ft. in vol
ume, be of wood, well strapped and have a hinge or screw top. (3) All mail matter should be addressed as now
prescribed by Postal Regulations. All express packages should be forwarded In care of "Supply Officer, Fleet

and Navy Shop from a broad assortment of articles assembled for the con
venience of these gift buyers. They are just such things as will appeal to the
boys. Price lists on application.
Appreciating the fact that many people would be disappointed as a result of the War Department ruling re
stricting each soldier in France to ONE standard-size Christmas package to be sent only by the recipient of the
Christmas Parcel Label (usually the next of kin)
MEIER & FRANK'S Has Established a Special Christmas
Paris-or Londoh-to-the-Front Service
whereby relatives not next of kin and friends who wish to send Christmas gifts to men in France may indicate
selections in our store and the goods will be forwarded by our representatives in Paris or London for delivery to
the men at the front in time for Christmas (thus entailing no strain on Atlantic shipping). Any one can send
one or more packages overseas through this special arrangement. We operate .this service on a no-profit basis.
Deliveries are not guaranteed that not being in our hands but deliveries are made exceedingly safe. Because
of the congestion which obtains more particularly in France at this time, orders for gifts to be sent abroad
through our Paris- or London-to-the-Front Service should be placed at once.
A price list of appropriate articles and combinations may be seen at Army and Navy Shop, Main Floor Central.
