Arrangements have, been made by
the post office department in coop
eration with the war and navy de
partments for acceptance of Christ
mas parcels for members of our
armed forces serving outside the
continental United States. (For the
purpose of these instructions Alaska
is included in he term "outside the
continental United States."
In order that such parcels may
reach the addresees on time and in
good condition, postmasters are re
quested to being the following re
quirements to the attention of
Time of Mailing: Christmas parcels
and Christmas cards should be mail
ed during the period beginning Oc
tober 1 and ending November 1,
1942, the earlier the better. Persons
should be encouraged to endorse
each gift parcel "Christmas Par
cel." Special effort will be made
to effect delivery of all Christmas
parcels mailed during that period in
time for Christmas.
Size and Weight: In view of the
urgent need for shipping space to
transport materials directly essen
tial to the war effort, Christmas
parcels shall not exceed the present
limits of 11 pounds in weight or 18
inches in length or 42 inches in
length and girth combined. Never
theless the public is urged by the
war and navy department to coop
erate by voluntarily restricting the
size of Christmas parcels to that of
an ordinary shoe box, and the
weight to 6 pounds. These depart
ments have pointed out also that
members of he ''armed forces are
amply provided with food and clo
thing, and the public is urged not to
include such matter in gift parcels.
Not more than one Christmas parcel
or package shall be accepted for
mailing in any one week when sent
by or on behalf of the same person
or concern to or for the same ad
Preparation: Owing to the great
distance this mail must be trans
ported and the handling and any
storage it must undergo, it is abso
lutely necessary that all articles be
packed in substantial boxes or con
tainers and be covered with wrap
pers of sufficient strength not only
to resist pressure of other mail in
the same sack, but to withstand the
weight of other sacks of mail, which
in the long transit may be piled
thereon. Furthermore, as each par
cel is subject to censorship, delay
in handling may be minimized by
securing the covering of the parcel
so as to permit ready inspection of
Perishable Matter: No perishable
matter should be included in any
Prohibited Articles: Intoxicants,
inflammable materials (inculding
matches of all kinds and lighter flu
ids) and poisons, or compositions
which may kill or injure another,
or damage the mails, are unmailable.

In the attics and cellars of
homes, in garages, tool sheds,
and on farms is a lot of Junk
which is doing no good where it
is, but which is needed at once to
help smash the Japs and Nazis.
Scrap iron and steel, for example. Old
radiators, lengths of pipe, refrigerators,
garbage pails, broken garden tools. . .
It may be rusty, old "scrap" to you,
but it is actually refined steel, with
most impurities removed and can be
quickly melted with new metal in the
form of pig iron to produce highest
quality steel for our war machines.
Even in peacetime our Nation relied
on scrap to provide about 50 of the
raw material for steel. Now production
of steel has gone up, up, VP, until
today America is turning out as much
steel as all the rest of the world com
But unless at least 6,000,000 addi
tional tons of scrap steel is uncovered
promptly, the full rate of production
cannot be attained or increased; the
necessary tanks, guns, and ships cannot
The rubber situation is also critical. In
spite of the recent rubber drive, there is
a continuing need for large quantities of
scrap rubber. Also for other waste mate
rials and metals like brass, copper, zinc,
lead, and tin.
America needs your active assistance
in rounding up these materials. The
Junk which you collect is bought by'
industry from scrap dealers at estab
lished, government-controlled prices.
Will you help?
First collect all your waste material
and pile it up.
Then sell it to a Junk dealer, give it
to a charity, take it yourself to the
nearest collection point, or get in touch
with your Local Salvage Committee.
If you live on a farm, consult your
