Christmas is almost here. kYour great Post office Department has a big job ahead and needs your help. Think what it means to b 'Stats Claus to our 100,000,000 people and to deliver Christmas parcels to every family in this great country within the short space of a few darts and without disappointment. It can be done, and we're going to do it if we may have your help. I want to enlist the active assistance of every boy and girl in the schools of our country in getting parcels mailed this week to relieve the rush that comes directly before Christmas. Will you go home today and take this message to your parents and friends ? . "Our postmaster has asked us"to mail our Christmas parcels this week, for, unless we do, Uncle Sam's load may be so heavy the, last few days before Christmas that he won't 5e able to deliver all the presents %y Christmas eve." The parcels .mu..be .we21.,wrplled and tied and addressed plainly in or- der that they may arrive in g06d con- dition with their Christmasy appear- ance unspoiled. You can put on yqur packages, "Do not open until Christ-' ITlas." And, there are some other things in which you can all assist in improv- ing the mail service and in gyving our great government millions of dollars a year that is now wasted because of our carelessness---yours and mine Every day that you drop a letter in the mail box, 40,000,Q00 other letters are already pushing and jamming thru the postal machinery. One 'letter a day for each family of five persons in the United Sates is given to Uncle Sam to deliver. When you send a parcel,to the post office for mailing any day there are about 8,000,000 other prcels ahead of yours passing thru the postal hopper. ,This is in ordinary days; at Christ- mas time it is multiplied many times. One family in about every ten ptts a badly addressed letter in the mail every day. This mikes up over 2,- 000,000 half-addressed letters with the 40,000,000 fully addressed letters. That means that fully addressed letters must wait on the slow-moving poorly addressed, letters just like the larger boys and girls are delayed by a bunch of "bad kids" tagging along. Goy boys and girls can hep the pot- tal service and save your father some money, because he has to help pay the cost of searching addresses on letters and parcels sent out by this one care. less and thoughtless family in every ten. First find out ff your family is the careless one, then bear in ind that your letters must be handled by skill- ed mail distributors standing in post of states because so many look alike when so abbreviates. Put the proper amount of postage on your letter and wrap the parcels carefully. Avoid fancy writing, which causes post office clerks and letter carriers to stop and study and thus lost time. Make the address ;)lain mM easily read, and always use pen and I ink or typewriter and light colored en- t ve]opes, so as to save tim eyes of the I post otIice clerks. Do not use envelopes of unusual I size. The little ones that are so fre- quently used for cards and notes at Christmas or other holiday times cause an untohl amount of trouble and labor, as they will not fit our cancelling ,ma- chines and must therefore be canceled by hand. Because of their size and tendency to slip out of a package, these small envelopes are more likely to be overlooked or lost. Mail your letters, and packages early in the day because this avoids overloading and delaying mail at the end of the (lay. Your local postmaster and teachers will tell you more about the Postal Service. Do these things, and you will the grateful appreciation of the ple in your postekce and especially of your postmaster general. --Will H. Hays. P. S. Don't forget to mail your Christmas packages this week. Ilk : U!! 2: '2/Y+:2:!: each parcel was wrapped in such a way that it was im- possible to guess what it contained. To stimulate the children's lnge nulty, a prize of a box of candy was of. fered to the member, of the family who displayed the greatest cleverness !In wrapping gifts. This was won by ieight-year-old Jack. He hung a string of remarkably lifelike sausages upon ,the tree, as an offering to his mother. When the strings were untied half-a- dozen 'liemstltched haddker ch le fs tmnbled out. Each haidkerchief had first been rolled in a smail cardboard and then wrapped in mottled paper. A close second to Jack's was a fountain pen concealed In a candle made of thin pasteboard wrapped in white tissue paper twisted to a point at the top to represent the wick and black- ened with a drop of ink to show that the wick had been lighted. This was ,stuck into the kitchen candlestick be- fore placing it under the tree where it presented a very realistic appear- ance. [ A wrist watch was hidden in a bou- I quet of paper flowers. The tiny watch ' hid Itself In the heart of a huge Amer- ican Beauty that formed the center blossom of this masterpiece. A brace- et was concealed among the stems and :he wide lbbon which tied them together. This year, a silk umbrella is to be disguised as a dachshund by first wrapping it in strong paper and then twisting wire around each end and bend- ing the ends up to forum the short leg of "long bowwow." Another bit of paper twisted on the ferrule forms the tall. The crook handle of the um- brella is padded with cotton batting for the head and the whole thing covered with brown crepe paper. Two big pins are used for eyes. Small gifts are the easiest of all to make mysterious. 'Iley can be hid- den In imitation applos, bananu, oranges or other kinds of fruit or pa- per cornucopias or drums. A set of doilies has been made into Old Glory by using crepe paper covered with American flags. Two of thee were cut out, pasted on cardboard and fast- ened together on each side of the at mckage of dollies and a small stick attached to one end.

And, there are some other things in which you can all assist in improv- ing the mail service and in saing our great government millions of dollars a year that is now wasted because of our carelessness---yours and mine. Every day that you drop a letter in the mail box, 40,000,Q00 other letters are already pushing and jamming thru the postal machinery. One 'letter a day for each family of five persons in the United Sates is given to Uncle Sam to deliver. When you send a parcel,to the post office for mailing any day there are about 8,000,000 Other parcels ahead of yours passing thru the postal hopper. .This is in ordinary days; at Christ- mas time it is multiplied many times. One family in about every, ten ptts a badly addressed letter in the mail every day. This mikes up over 2,- 000,000 half-addressed letters with the 40,000,000 fully addressed letters. That means that fully addressed letters must wait on the slow-moving poorly addressed, letters just like the larger boys and girls are delayed by a bunch of "bad kids" tagging along. Goy boys and girls can heap the pot- tal service and save your father some money, because he has to help pay the cost of searching addresses on letters and parcels sent out by this one care- less and thoughtless family in every ten. First find out ff your family is the careless one, then bear in aind that your letters must be handled by skill- ed mail distributors' standing in post offices and on swaying mail ears of a mile-a-minute mail trains, often under Legion Auxiliary Ladies Sell Auto Name Plates In order to raise money for the needs of their organization, the American Legion Ladies' Auxiliary are offering to auto owners a very unique and useful tag or plate to at- tach to the bottom of auto licenses, bearing the words, "Ortonville, Minn." to idehtify Ortonville cars wherever they may be seen, thereby advertisii[ our city. Many such name plates an seen on cars from Aberdeen and Wa- tertown and make a very useful ad- tion to the car's equipment, also ad- ding uch to the appearance of t car. The plates are printed in black on a field of orange, the high schcli school colors.

Put the proper amount of postage on your letter and wrap the parcels carefully. Avoid fancy writing, which causes post office clerks and letter carriers to stop and study and thus lost time. Make the address plain and easily read, and always use pen and ink or typewriter and light colored en- velopes, so as to save the eyes of the post office clerks. Do not use envelopes of unusual size.

Fun With .Chfigtmas Parcels L ST year we lad much more [un over the Christmas tree han ever before because each parcel was wrapped in such a way that it was im- possible to guess what it contained. To stimulate the children's inge nulty, a prize of a box of candy was of. fered to the member, of the family who displayed the greatest cleverness !in wrapping gifts. This was won by eight-year-old Jack. He bung a string of remarkably lifelike sausages upon the tree, as an offering to his mother. When the strings were untied half-a- dozen 'hemstitched hafldker ch le fs tumbled ouL Each haidkerchief had first been rolled in a ,small cardboard and then wrapped in mottled paper. A close second to Jack's was a fountain pen concealed In a candle made of thin pasteboard wrapped in white tissue paper twisted to a point at the top to represent the wick and black- ened with a drop of ink to show that the wick had been lighted. This was ,stuck into the kitchen candlestick be- fore Placing it hnder the tree where it presented a very realistic appear- once. A wrist watch was hid den in a bou- quet of paper flowers. The tiny watch hid Itself In the heart of a huge Amer- ican Beauty that formed the center blossom of this masterpiece. A brace- et was concealed among the stems and the wide lbbon which tied them together. This year, a silk umbrella Is to be disguised as a dachshund by tint wrapping it in strong paper and then twisting wire around each end and bend- ing the ends up to foPm the short legs of "long bOwwow." Another hit of paper twisted on the ferrule forms the tall. The crook handle of the um- brella is padded with cotton batting for the head and the whole thing covered with brown crepe paper. Two big pins are used for eyes. Small gifts are the easiest of all to make mysterious. They can be hid- den in imitation apples, bananas, oranges or other kinds of fruit or pa- per cornucopias or drums. A set of dollies has been made into Old Glory by using crepe paper covered with American flaP. Two of these were cut out, pasted on cardboard and fast- ened together on each side of the &at package of doilies and a small stick attached to one end.

Think what it means to b 'Stats Claus to our 100,000,000 people and to deliver Christmas parcels to every family in this great country within the short space of a few da's and without disappointment. It can be done, and we're going to do it if we may have your help. I want to enlist the active assistance of every boy and girl in the schools of our country in getting parcels mailed this week to relieve the rush that comes directly before Christmas. Will you go home today and take this message to your parents and friends ? "Our postmaster has asked us"te mail our Christmas parcels this week, for, unless we do, Uncle am's load may be so heavy the, last few days before Christmas that he won't be able to deliver all the presents %y Christmas eve." The parcels .mt..be .well.,wraled and tied and addressed plainly in or- der that they may arrive in g06d con- dition with their Christmasy appear- ance unspoiled.  You can put on your packages, "Do not open until Christ-' mas." And, there are some other things in which you can all assist in improv- ing the mail service and in saing our great government millions of dollars a year that is now wasted because of our carelessness---yours and mine. Every day that you drop a letter in the mail box, 40,000,Q00 other letters are already pushing and jamming thru the postal machinery. One 'letter a day for each family of five persons in the United Sates is given to Uncle Sam to deliver. When you send a parcel,to the post office for mailing any day there are about 8,000,000 Other parcels ahead of yours passing thru the postal hopper. .This is in ordinary days; at Christ- mas time it is multiplied many times. One family in about every, ten ptts a badly addressed letter in the mail every day. This mikes up over 2,- 000,000 half-addressed letters with the 40,000,000 fully addressed letters. That means that fully addressed letters must wait on the slow-moving poorly addressed, letters just like the larger boys and girls are delayed by a bunch of "bad kids" tagging along. Goy boys and girls can heap the pot- tal service and save your father some money, because he has to help pay the cost of searching addresses on letters and parcels sent out by this one care- less and thoughtless family in every ten. First find out ff your family is the careless one, then bear in aind that your letters must be handled by skill- ed mail distributors' standing in post offices and on swaying mail ears of a mile-a-minute mail trains, often under Legion Auxiliary Ladies Sell Auto Name Plates In order to raise money for the needs of their organization, the American Legion Ladies' Auxiliary are offering to auto owners a very unique and useful tag or plate to at- tach to the bottom of auto licenses, bearing the words, "Ortonville, Minn." to idehtify Ortonville cars wherever they may be seen, thereby advertisii[ our city. Many such name plates an seen on cars from Aberdeen and Wa- tertown and make a very useful ad- tion to the car's equipment, also ad- ding uch to the appearance of t car. The plates are printed in black on a field of orange, the high schcli school colors.
