On account of the delay in the send
ing of labels by the soldiers aeioss tlio
sea, the date for the sending of pres
ents to soldiers has been extended from
Nov. 15 until Nov. 20. The mails are
rather alow even when coming this
way from France and for this reason
very few people in the city who have
soldiers in France have received the
label that entitles the soldier to re
ceive the regulation Christmas lox.
Without the label, no'present may be
sent. When the label is received it
must be taken to Bed Cross headquart
ers in Salem as evidence that the sol
dier is entitled to receive enough Christ
mas presents to fill one of the small
cartons, 3 by hy inches.
