Mail-Order Catalog Starts 'Run'
j On Behind-the-lron-Curtain Point
j Washington (P) An American mail order catalog touched
off a lot of excitement in the the capital of communist-run
f Yugoslavia recently.
Everybody, it seemed, wanted to order something from it.
The story came out when the house appropriations commit
tee made public testimony on a bill to supply money for state
department operations. ,
The (Sears, Roebuck) catalog was put on the table of the
American information library in Belgrade. A report from the
U. S. embassy there added:
"Before 10 days had gone by people were forming lines go
ing around the block, waiting to see this catalog. It upset the
whole operations of the library."
Dollar drafts up to $6 each were legal and the bank was
wamped with applications of people who wanted to put in
orders. The bank finally banned the drafts.

Kings Valley
Lost Province
Lack of direct mail service
between Kings Valley and Cor
vallis is making that area the
"lost province" of Benton coun
ty, according to J. M. Graham,
postmaster, who says that most
of the 185 voters who registered
at the last election are going
elsewhere for "outside services"
such as visits to the doctor, den
tist and theaters or just plain
shopping. The bulk of this trade
goes to Salem, Dallas, Indepen
dence or Monmouth, he says.
Mail from Corvallis to the
Kings Valley postoffice usually
takes "about three days," he
says, or at least second class
matter does, because It is routed
through Monmouth. All this
could be changed, Graham be
lieves, by the inauguration of a
direct mail route from Corvallis
to Kings Valley via Philomath
and Wren.
Though Corvallis is the coun
ty seat for the valley, it has paid
little or no attention to- the
Kings Valley area for 25 years,
Graham declares.
