PAOI24 ANDttSON tUNPAY HfRALP Pity The Poor Perplexed Postman Photon And Story By Dorothy Boyce Celebration of National Zip Code Week, Oct. 10-15, will give each individual the opportunity to express appreciation to tha route carrier, who'se cod« remain thai rain, nor snow, nor gleet, nor gloom of night, shall stay these couriers from swift completion of their appointed rounds. The Post Office Department •sks that we »dd a Zip Coda to assist in the tremendous job of collecting, processing and delivering the U.S. mail, which now has an annual volume to exceed 65 billion pieces a year. The Department is dedicated lo delivering mail as efficiently as possible, with the least possible cost, and by adding the Zip Code, we join in achievement of this basic goal. Late Mail Lament In the beginning, let us agree that a late letter is lamentable. The degree of delivery delay determines its delusion. If the belated message is an exchange of salutations between old friends, the recipient feels neglected. If the communication is a formal business fundament, Its timely purpose may have already failed ... and so. put Zip into your correspondence for zone expediency. Postmen's Problems Neighborhood dogs yapping at his feet ara but one of the problems the Route carrier must cope with in his daily walks about town. Reading addresses hastily scribbled is a provocation experienced by the mail sorter. For example, Indiana's "look-alike" towns: Oakville and Oatsville, Royalton and Royerton; Russellville and Russiaville; Lauer and Laura; AUensvills and Allisonville; Bridgeton and Brighton; Bristol aDd Bristan; Klondyke and Klondike; and the mosl startline confusion of all are the towns of Schererville and Schnellville. Add the related letter characteristics, the peculiarity of individual penmanship, anc it's sure to compute total com- lications you may never Pli know whether the Jones "hac a wonderful time" in Jonesville or Jonesboro, but at least you'll town in the following counties know they vacationed hi Indiana. Fanciful Humor Pilgrim fathers must have been masters of whimsey to have selected the following authentic names for Indiana village, town and city: Surprise, Story, Surrey, Tulip, Bean Blossom, Sassafras, Popcorn, White Cloud, Solitude. Valentine, Plum Tree, Swan, Santa Claus, Oatsville, Pumpkin Center and Farmers Retreat. All are legitimate names, as acknowledged in a list published by Indiana Official Highway Map, under the sponsorship of Eoger D. Branigin, Governor, state of Indiana.

Of course, in our modern, proverbial hurry, we could become elementary and settle for Bo Peep Avenue, Snow White Lane, Three Bears Boulevard and how about Rumpelstiltskin Run? „ , Pardon the spoof, but it must ty and Lexington of Scot be mighty confusing for the letter carrier to attempt to deliver a hastily - addressed letter to: John Q. Public, 123 Hawthorne, Anderson, Ind., when there is a Hawthorne Avenue and a Hawthorne Road in our fair city. In this instance, where there is local repetition, the Zip Code unscrambles nothing, so pity the poor perplexed postman and write it right.

Wells Charges Board Neglect By Branigin INDIANAPOLIS (UPI)_ Richard D. Wells, Republican nominee for state superintendent of public instruction, criticized Governor Branigin Tuesday for permitting the terras of a members of the State Board of Education to expire Wells charged at a news con- erence that Branigin has done nothing about replacing the members as their terms expire or reappointing them to new :erms. "Apparently the governor is rymg to build a record of ex- >ired terms," Wells said "By ailing to take action one more ear, the governor can boost MS record to 15 and go o he top in 1968." ''This dilatory approach to llmg vacancies on many state cards and commissions is typi- al of the Democrat administra- lon," Wells said. "Parents, ducators and members of the tate Board of Education them- elves are entitled to know who s going to be responsible for he supervision of this most important branch of government."

Meanwhile, critical problems teacher shortages, adoption textbooks and training for ucators remain unsolved, ac- rding to Wells.
