I Postmaster General Walker announced that a contract IMS been nwnrded for the manufacture of lCC.000.OOp Postal-Notes and efforts are being made to place this new and Inexpensive type of money order on sale at all of the 1575 First Class Post Offices by Jan. 1. "The Postal Note epitomizes what we arc Attempting to accomplish hi the entire administration of the Pos- tiil Service," Mr. Walker said. "We iyant the Postal Service to be char- Qicterlzed by efficiency and economy, We want, lo incorporate. In our service as many as possible of the extraordinary advances and Improvements which have been realized In American business. And we want, while performing our work as efficiently as vie know how to do it, to charge no move for n specific service than that service costs." 'Hie new type of money order will be made available to pasl offices other than of the first class as rap-* i'ily AS, adequate stocks of Postal Noies come from the presses. However, from the beginning they may bs cashed at any past office In the IHATHlSVlljLB COUHIBK NEWS United states. The new Postal Note Is designed as « safe, convenient and economical way of sending through the mulls amounts of money not exceeding. $10. Simplified methods of sale and accounting makes it possible to handle the Notes nt n uniform fee of 5c. The conventional money order' is not being displaced by the new Note. This is the procedure that will be followed when Postal Notes become available: A person who wants a Postal Note for $2.93 will go to the money order window. The clerk will afrix a 90c and a 3c stamp to a $2 Postal Note, and exchange the Note lot- $2.93. There are no applications for the purchaser to fill out, no writing to be done by the clerk. The purchaser leaves the window, writes in Die name of the payee on the Note, detaches his record stub on which he records the payee's name and malls the Postal Note. The Note itself is a •calculating card form. Girls' 'Silliness' irks Billy KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UP)-Glrls locked P'nln "silly" running around in boys' jeans with their sliirttails flapping.
