Overseas Gilts Should Go Early Mail Before Oct. 15, Postmaster Stevens Warns Those At Home Postmaster Ross Stevens today lulu'sed persons planning to mall Christmas gilts to Army and Navy personnel overseas to "save strong siring and box material and start to plan shopping." > This year the Christmas mulling period for Iwth Army and Navy ovi'j-seas forces is Kept. 15 to Oct. 15. After Oct. 15 no gift parcel may be mailed to a soldier without the presentation of a written request froii! him. The i;rcat immediate demands upon shipping and the need for giving preference to arms, munitions, medicine and food is the prime reason for the early mailing dale, Mr. Stevens pointed out. Moreover, gift parcels must Irnvrl great distances to reach Army, and Navy personnel who are located at remote points, and frequently the transfer of large numbers to new stations ueccssi- lutcs forwarding of the packages ami additional time Is required. Stressing the fact that the gifts must travel far, Mr. Stevens said Dint Ihe gifts, to bo protected, should be packaged In boxes made of metal, wood, solid flborwoort or strong, double-faced corrugated fiberbonrd, reinforced with strong gummed paper tape or tied with strong twine. Care should lie taken in tiic wrapping and the addressing of the parcels, Mr. Stevens said. Among the more important rules for Christmas mailings to the armed forces overseas fire the following: The parcel must not exceed five pounds, and must not be more than 15 inches in length or 30 inches in length and girth combined. It should lie marked "Christmas parcel" so that It may be given special attention to assure Us arrival before December 25. Not more Ihnn one parcel may be mailed'in any one week to the some' member of the armed forces by or in behnlf of the same mailer When combination packages are made up of such Items as miscellaneous toilet articles, hard candles, soaps, etc., the contents should be tightly packed so that they will not Iwcoinc loosened In transit and damage the contents or the cover. Hard candles, nuts, caramels (including those covered with chocolate), cookies, fruit cake, nnd chocolate bars Individually wrapped in waxed paper should be enclosed in inner boxes of v/ood, metal, or cardboard. Perishable goods, such as fruits and vegetables that may spoil arc prohibited. Intoxicants, Inflammable materials such as matches or lighter fluids, poisons, and anything that may damage'other mall also are prohibited. Gifts enclosed In glass sliotiM be substantially packed to avoid breakage. Sharp Instruments such as razors and knives, must have their edges and points protected so that they cannot cut through the coverings and )njtue postal personnel or damage other packages. Relatives and friends who know that the personnel In the armed services to whom they plan to send gifts are at far distant points should begin to mall their packages on the opening day—September 15—of the mailing period. Last year late mail- Ings, causing concentration of "real numbers of packages in the final days of the mailing' period, threatened to defeat tlie program. It is stressed that success can be assured with the limited personnel and facilities available, only if tho public gives full cooperation through prompt mailings of the overseas gift parcels from tbc opening of the mailing period.
