MAILING PERIOD FOR CHRISTMAS PARCELS TO GO OVERSEAS Postoffice Department Designates September 15 To October 15 As Dates Save strong siring and box nmti Postmaster General Frank advises Americans in announcing thi rules for mailing of Christinas gifti for Army and Navy personnel over This year the Christmas period for both Army and Navy over seas forces is the 15 to October After October 15 no gift parcel may be mailed to a sol rlior without the presentation i ivrittcn request from The great demands upon and the need for giving preference t medicine and foot is the prime reason for the early mail ing gift parcels nmsl travel great distances to roach Army and Navy personnel who arc locatec at remote and frequently the transfer of largo numbers to new sta tions necessitates forwarding of tht packages and additional time is re Theresponse that our people made last year during the overseas mailing period demonstrated thai they cooperate in any measure designed for the welfare of our armet forces It is not easy Christmas gifts in the midst of warn weather here at but our people recognized the and because they want the men and women who are ab sent from their homes to know that they are not forgotten at Christmas they took pains to assure prompt de livery of Christmas I know that our people will ob serve the overseas mailing schedule once more this but I do wish to stressthis More care taken in wrapping and packing par cels securely and addressing them clearly and It is not a pleasant thing to visit a postal concentration center and see Walker said to concentrate the numbers of which will never Christmas parcels reach service men and service Postoffice person nel have orders to do everything they can to effect delivery of such because we know how important they are for the happiness of the armed Too nothing can be I aw sorry that anyone ever men tioned that the size of a shoe box is he approximate limit for packages ntended for gift mailings many people become con vinced that a shoe box is the best pos sible We must be mind ful that these gifts must travel with shipping space If the gifts are to be protected in transit hey must be packed in boxes made of solid or strong doublefaced rein orced with strong gummed paper ape or tied with strong If wth tape and strong twine are so much the If the outer wrapper is this is like y to loss of contents may be prevented if fibreboard boxes ue wrapped in heavy We were unable to deliver many jarcels which families and friends sent to men and women overseas last rear because they were crushed in and the gift and outside wrap jer became We would have een able to make delivery if the ad Iress had been shown on the inside We advise that everyone vrite the address of the sender and addressee inside the as well as Christinas gifts mean much to our icople Because strong heavy paper and boxes and ibreboard will prove of real help in naking delivery of gifts I rge those at home to begin saving hese materials As time goes on hey are going to become even more carce than they are Among the more important rules or Christmas mailings to the armed orces overseas are the following The parcel must not exceed five and must not be more than 5 inches in length or 36 inches in ength arid girth It should ie marked Christmas so hat it may be given special attention o assure its arrival
