Mai! Christmas Packages Now!
Overseas Christmas packages are Out of the
way and now comes an urgent appeal from the
post office department to mail packages and cards
destined for continental destinations early. Prompt
delivery will be an impossibility unless the pub
lic starts mailing right now and gets it over with
during the month of November. That is the state
ment of Postmaster General Frank C. Walker.
Reams of paper have been used by the depart
ment in writing warnings and appeals warnings
of the danger of swamping an already overbur
dened transportation system at a time when ser
vice men and their families will demand most of
the facilities provided by rail, bus and air lines,
and appeals to do right now what one usually puts
off until the day before Christmas. All over the
land the newspapers are constantly hammering
away on the subject and it is believable that some
of this propaganda, if such it may be called, reach
es home. To add a bit of urging, let us remember
that all branches of pubic service are seriously
handicapped by manpower. If given reasonable
time their jobs can be done, but there is a limit
to what they can do and each individual can con
tribute his share in handling the mail by starting
now on his package mailing and not waiting to
unload the whole lot onto the postoffice at one
time and that the day before Christmas.
This year's slogan is: "Mail in November.
Mark your parcels, 'Do Not Open Until Christ
mas.' If parcels are sent out before December 1,
1 it may be possible to handle a small volume of
light mail, such as cards, up to December 10, but
only if November is really Mailing Month."
O
On Marking Rural Mail Boxes
How many times have you tried to find a place
in the country following directions given by some
one knowing the lay of the land and yet were un
able to reach the right destination without addi
tional inquiry? It is safe to assert that most people
experience that difficulty in a region where sign
posts are lacking. The difficulty is not lessened by
the lack of names on the mail boxes." That is one
place where a lot of the trouble could be elimi
nated if people on rural routes will take the
trouble to paint their Tiames on either side of their
mail boxes.
Morrow county is not thickly inhabited as some
other sections where rather populous neighbor
hoods exist. To the unacquainted visitor seeking
some certain farm this frequently presents a pro
blem of much inquiry, whereas if mail boxes car
ried the owner's name or if there were a name
plate over the gate there would be no problem.
A good example of road and residence direction
is to be found in Deschutes county and that part
of Crook county embodied in the Powell Butte
' district. There you will find the lanes labeled and
the names of the people residing along the lanes.
Thus, if you were looking for John Doe on Lovers'
lane over in Shady Nook township you would be
quite apt to find it without personal inquiry. You
would simply follow the highway until you came
to the lane, the name of which is at the top of
the post. Number one under the lane label is the
name of the first resident, the . rest following
down the scale.
This natter was presented to the directors of
Heppner Chamber of Commerce Tuesday evening
and an effort will be made to' assist in getting
several districts of the county preperly directed.
It is a move in the right direction. Carried to fru
ition it will prove that our ranchers are progress
ive as well as prosperous. It has been suggested
that the granges take an active part in promoting
the program since their membership is largely
from the farms and the grange is interested in
matters pertaining to improvement of physical
and cultural development of rural life.
