Some one was asleep when the contract was signed for (he com- 1 pletion of the Crossroads Post Office building. I have been advised that the United State Post Office Dept. rented the building from Robert May at a certain specified sum. The building is completed for occupancy, even to the flag pole and rope. Ro!ert May furnished the. pole and the rope but the P.O. Dep:. was to furnish the flag, which they did.' The rope has become old and rotten and has broken several times and is now in so many kno.s that it is impossible to con- · linue using it. Therefore that is the reason we have the only post office in the U.S. which does not display the U.S. flag. : The question is why was it not stipulated in the contract that and all send in 50c or 60c. then thcr Robert May was lo furnish' we surely can have our parade.
