DID GREAT Mil
Employees' of the Salem Of
fice Had uleared the
. Decks By Noon.
The employees of the - Salem
postof flee did wonderful work In
handling the holiday mail, outgo
ing as well as incoming. Of
course the -outgoing mall .was kept
cleared away all the time, regular
day and night forces working on
It (and isome of the : boys Jetting
their time lop over into the hours
of both day and .night workers)
and the substitutes and extra men
and women doing their best.
Every piece . of ' Incoming- mall
was cleared away and out of -the
building by noon; and all of it de
liveredor supposed to be;, though
it Is not certain that some mem
bers of the force on delivery' work
did not lap over a little after that
hOUr h ; k : 'V ' . ;.x
Orders had been given .ty the
higher-ups that all work should' be
finished by 12 -o'clock." in order
that - the -hard-worked - forces - - all
over the United States might hare
a chance to enjoy theirs Christmas
dinners with, their families. This
is the first year, or at least the
first one for a long time, that, such
orders have been given. The pri
vilege must have been enjoyed by
many . thousands of faithful . em
ployees of the department all over
the United States. It was certain
ly appreciated by . the Salem' em
ployees. ; -;: . , . . - ' J
One collection of mail was made
yesterday morning in the down
town district. How much mall do
you suppose the boys found in the
mail boxes? They found six let
ters and two postal, cards!
So the hammering for sending
Christmas mail early certainly
took."- , If - It took as well
throughout the country as It did
in Salem, Uncertainly deserves to
go down in history as a most sue
cessful working out of a propa
ganda campaign in the interest of
the public and of this most im
portant service of Uncle Sam. t .
