J'obliJiasler LJres Immediate Mail Of Holiday Gifts Public response to the Post Office Department's "Shop Now! Mail in November" campaign is good but needs to be better, according to Postmaster General Frank C. Walker. "Extraordinary wartime conditions face us," Mr. Walker said. "Unless more people buy and mail this month the Postal service cannot dn its job of delivering all Christmas yit'ts on time. 'It is not pleasing to us to have to ask the American people to mail packages so far in advance of the delivery date. We do so only because It has to be done. The job Is a tremendous one, but we are confident that it will be done because we know from experience that given sound reasons Americans cooperate mag nificently. "Unprecedented shortages of man power and transportation facilities growing out of the war compel early mailing. The Postal Service has given 60,000 experienced employees to the armed forces and 300,000 railroad workers have gone to war. Equally serious Is the fact that rail and other transport facilities are taxed to the limit with the great burden of war traffic which all of us know must take precedent.
