Racine Journal Times Sunday Bulletin (Newspaper) - September 13, 1936, Racine, Wisconsin Reader urges Bike registration dear editor in last sunday to bulletin n. Bcleveland Avenue suggested using a system As now employed in Kenosha for the Protection of bicycles. This seems to be a very Good idea and easily worked out. I feel that every boy or girl going to school or any other Bike owner for that matter would be willing to pay a Small fee of about 25 cents for the Protection of his Bike. This fee would cover the Price of the number and also pay for other expenses connected with it. Now that so Many new bicycles Are on the j roads Many Small gangs May be organized and travel to different cities stealing bicycles and taking them to other cities. This system would prove to be an insurance and prevent Many of these bikes being stolen. Hope this will be Given a Chance and i feel it will i prove satisfactory. W.

When Small was 12 years old he wrote a Short outdoor article on theme paper in a childish scrawl and mailed it to a National sports Magazine. It was accepted and he was off on a writing career.

Every Effort is made to deliver mail if proper postage is attached. Employees of the postal department Are willing to exhaust their efforts and patience in this attempt but one thing the postal department refuses to do is to Forward mail bearing insufficient postage. Of the address of the person writing or sending mail is not available at the Post office of mailing the postage is collected from the person to whom it is addressed. Method of procedure. After improperly or illegible addressed mail has proved beyond the ability of the regular clerks to ferret out it passes to the directory clerk who we trestles with it until he has either hit upon the proper address or has concluded that he is unable to solve the Puzzle and gives it up As a bad Job. I City and Telephone directories often Are searched in the task. After All other efforts have failed the mail is returned to the sender if the latter address is Given. Otherwise it goes to the a dead letter department a where it is finally destroyed unless it contains valuables which Are kept by the government for a year after which they become government property. An Experiment. One of the deliberate offenders recently we tas the writer of this article who mailed letters to prominent persons using newspaper pictures of those to whom they were sent. Enclosed letters asked the j addressees to return the original envelopes As evidence that they were delivered. Among the persons receiving these letters were president Franklin d. Roosevelt Hon. James j. Farley governor Philip f. La a Follette u. S. Senator Robert m. Lafollette Shirley Temple Fred Ric March Joe Louis Jack Dempsey James j. Braddock u. S. Senator f. Ryan Duffy and mayor Jack Dempsey to restaurant Dempsey s Corne eighth Avenue it 50th Shee opposite Madison a. Garden new Vork City my dear Sid Xay i the letter was delivered to a at a restaurant Here in Dew tor Pronto at you can tee that ought to make a great feature a a a looks to a As of it has Syndicate value would like to receive a copy of the paper containing the article then you publish it sincerely yours William j. Swoboda. These returned the envelopes in which their letters were sent As indicated in the accompanying pictures. Similar letters also were sent to Hon. Alfred e. Smith and gov. Alfred m. Landon. Both must have received the letters by now but neither has returned the envelope containing his letter. Letters also were sent to King Edward of England Premier Mussolini and Adolph Hitler. These were unable to overcome the International mail hurdle at new York and were returned marked a insufficient ?� the purpose. Object of sending the letters was not to gain autographs or anything for a Hobby Book but to see to what limit the postal department will go. Neither was it to encourage sen toy similar tests on the part of collectors but rather to discourage them if possible and to lighten the work of postal employees. The writer did not inquire what Steps were taken in the delivery of these letters but it is assumed that if one employee was unable to identify the pictures on the envelopes someone else in the department would be called to Aid. At least pictures and addresses were assembled and the letters were delivered to the proper persons. Markings on one envelope indicated the department had attempted deliveries at several last known addresses of the person for whom the letter was intended. Dempsey liked idea. Jack Dempsey liked the idea As indicated by the letter he wrote in sending his envelope Back to the writer. Additional indication was his inspiration to Send it by air mail rather than through the regular channels. A othe letter was delivered to me at my restaurant Here in new York Pronto As you can see a said the letter. A that ought to make a great feature article for the newspaper. Looks to me As if it has Syndicate value. Would like to receive a copy of the paper containing the article when you publish ?� senator f. Ryan Duffy also liked the idea. A yours is certainly a novel idea a he wrote a and i would be pleased to receive a copy of the article when it ?� Stephen Early assistant Secretary to the president wrote a personal letter for president Roosevelt and or. Farley dictated one in reply to the one he had received. Similar replies were received from others. Proper addressing. The proper Way to address an envelope it is explained at the Post office is to place the name and address of the one writing the letter in the upper left Corner and the name and Complete address of the addressee including Street and number or Rural route and Box number about half Way from the top to the Bottom of the envelope toward the right Side. Post office officials also suggest that persons moving from the City or from one address to another in the City or on Rural routes notify their local pos offices of their changes of address. This will insure prompt delivery of the Mai u. S. Criminals top thugs in dress briton declares London.
