Postal Service Day Being Observed Here Postmaster Ed Farrell of Algona reported today that Postal Services Day, Sept. 19 will highlight those services offered to the community by the local post office. On Postal Services Day, letter carriers will begin delivering to every householder a kit of eight postal cards which can be mailed back to the post office to obtain the ZIP code for "adp- less" addresses. Each completed card will be sent to the post office which services the address needing a ZIP Code. There the proper five-digit number will be added before the form is returned to the sender. No postage will be needed on the cards. Postal Services Day activities will be designed to point out that the Post Office Department is the one Federal Government agency that comes in closest contact with the public on a day-in and day-out basis. Each of the eight postal cards in the kit will contain a message encouraging the general use of ZIP Code. There will be a ninth card of instructions. In addition, another separate card will be delivered which is a reminder of the local ZIP Code. Last year, approximately 10,000 addresseswere ZlPCoded by the Algona Post Office as part of a similar program using only one card with spaces for as many as 13 addresses, Postmaster Farrell said. "The ultimate result will be an improvement in service," Postmaster General Lawrence F. O'Brien has said about the project. "ZIP Code is the base upon which the modern postal service is being built. But, it won't work and the modernization and efficiencies ZIP Code will bring cannot go into effect until there is more widespread usage of the five-number code."

Upp*r fta Mdlfltt-9 »»» JGHT — ^~«-»«—- ^*., ^^s MESS Promise Revision, Mail Routing, North Kossuth A communication from the editor of the Elmore, Minn. Eye, weekly newspaper, should result in improved mail service around the north end of Kossuth county, according to a story carried in the "Eye" last week. The problem-Sfifims._to be_ that mail from Minnesota, addressed to towns in northern Kossuth county, is routed to the sectional center at Mankato, then to Minneapolis, then to Fort Dodge, then to Algona, and from Algona north, This is taking up to four days, it is reported. "We can get mail from Elmore to California in two days," said the Elmore publisher, "but it takes four days to get to towns only a short distance from Elmore." His article on the problem follows: "In this day of modern technology, when we are sending rockets to the moon, airplanes flying faster than sound, cars speeding down super highways and advancement in almost any phase of our economy, it still takes four days to get a letter seven to nine miles from Elmore. With the addition of zip code, many new sectional postal centers all over the country to speed up mail delivery, things are so "goofed up" in sending mail to Ledyard, Lakota, Swea City, Rake and Buffalo Center, Iowa, that If you mail a letter here on Thursday, it won't be delivered until Monday, "Under the new sectional center form of distribution, you can get a letter to Florida or California in two days, but to a few Jowa towns south of Elmore, four days, In checking with the sectional center at Mankato, 'I was told that mail leaving Elmore goes to Mankato, then to Minneapolis, then to Fort Podge, la., then to Algona, la,, and finally is sent to the towns north of Algona. Before the big change in our postal service, Lathan Hagge had a Star Route from Mankato through Elmore and to these towns south, and Earl Snyder had a Star Route from Algona, through these towns to Blue Earth and return. Now both have been discontinued. In checking with the regional director in Minneapolis on Tuesday, he had to admit it was ridiculous, and promised swift action to try and correct the situation. It is no fault of the Elmore post office as they are required to send all mail to the section center at Mankato. As of Tuesday, the Regional Directors of Schemes and Planning called stating that they had worked out a new delivery, which would assure faster delivery to Lakota, Ledyard, Buuaio Center, Rake and Swea City."
