Cahalan. Of these 110 patrons in West Haven will be served by a city carrier for the first time. Other areas affected by the change are 104 families in Mid-* land Heights, 154 in the Laws ad-' dition and adjacent territory and 66 in the Highlands. The effective date of the change has not yet been determined but it will be some time this summer 'or early fall, perhaps within a few weeks, Postmaster Cahalan stated. Notice of the change will be given to all patrons affected, specifying preparations for the event. To Have "Mounted" Carriers The new service will be given by a "mounted" city carrier, not a rural carrier. Accordingly, "Rural Route 1" will not be used in the address of West Haven residents, when the ruling goes into effect. The city carrier will serve from his automobile in much the same manner as a rural carrier and the rural typt of mail box must be provided, the notices stated. "I am pleased to report that the postmaster general has authorized the extension of mail delivery service into the West Haven addition," Postmaster Cahalan said in commenting on the change. "I have felt that the rows of mail boxes along the heavily traveled highway 106 are much too dangerous and I have felt also that the people of West Haven are entitled to better delivery service — that is, delivery nearer their homes. I am glad that the postof- fice department approved my recommendation for this change/' he added. Shows West Haven The accompanying chart shows the West Haven area that will receive the city service for the first time. It is bounded on the east by Benjamin street and on the \vest by McKinley street. The north boundary is 19th street (highway 106) and the south boundaries are 26th from Grover street westward to McKinley and 23rd street eastward to Benjamin. In Midland Heights 89 families served by rural route 3 on 28th and 29th streets and 15 families in the 400th block on 27th and 26th streets between Madison between Madison and Monroe having out-of-bound boxes will get the city carrier and improved service. In the Laws addition and adjacent territory in the southeast section of Mason City, mail service by rural carrier No. 3 will be discontinued. Instead service will be performed by a mounted city carrier who will give curb delivery into rural type mail boxes in much the same manner as the rural carrier but will serve many patrons much closer to their homes and perhaps a little earlier in the day, Cahalan pointed out. Route Outlined Following is the route to be followed in the above mentioned area: Beginning at 19th and Hampshire S. E., the carrier will go north to 16th, east to Virginia, north to 15th and <*ast to Kentucky. He will then go back west on 15th to Hampshire where he will again turn around, going back to Virginia. He will go north on Virginia to 14th, west on 14th to Hampshire, north to 13th, east on 13th to Kentucky, north on Kentucky to 9th, west on 9th to Virginia, south on Virginia across the railroad tracks to 12th and west 12th to Carolina place, then corner of Carolina place and 9th, all southeast. From this point he will go east on 9th 8th across the M. & St. L. tracks to' South Carolina. Rural type mail boxes must be erected at the curb on the right hand side of the street as traveled by the carrier and names and addresses must be painted on each box. Two or more boxes should be grouped wherever this can be done conveniently. Provide Better Service It will be noted, the postmaster explained, that better service is provided for persons residing on 16th S. E., 14th S. E., 12th S. E., 7th S. E., and on Virginia from 7th to 16th S. E. Patrons residing on the north side of 15th should move their boxes to the north side of the street. Patrons residing on ' both sides of 9th street between Virginia and Kentucky S. E., should move their boxes to the north side. Patrons on 13th S. E., from Hampshire to Kentucky, should move boxes to the south side of the street, he stated. All patrons In this area should arrange to have their mail addressed by street and number. Use of the designation "Rural Route No. 3" must be discontinued when the change goes into effect, it was stated. In the Highlands in the northeast section of the city, the streets to receive the new city service are 15th street east of Kentucky, .the 1400 block of Ohio N. E., and 16th N. E. from Hampshire eastward to its end. These patrons are now served in out-of-bound boxes at 15th place N. E., and Rhode Island and on 15th N. E., a block east of Rhode Island. Preparation Suggested While waiting for the change, patrons affected are asked by me postmaster to prepare for the event immediately as follows: 1. Display a house number prominently on your home so that it may be read easily from the street. If the correct number is not known, inquire of the city engineer at the City hall. Notify your correspondents to address your mail by street and number. 2. Erect a post and support for your mail box on the right side of the street as traveled by the carrier, ready to receive your box when the change is made. On the accompanying chart the dotted line shows how the carrier will travel. Two or more patrons living close together should group their boxes on one standard wherever possible. Paint Name and Address 3. Paint your name and address on your mail box now, but do not move it from its present location until notified. If you do not own an approved rural mail box in serviceable condition, obtain one promptly. "The v postoffice is glad to bring this improved service and it is hoped that patrons will co-operate by moving their boxes promptly on the date of the change (where such moving is required) and see that the name and address is prominently displayed on the box," Cahalan said. He added that if any feature of the change requires classification persons should not hesitate to inquire at the postoffice. XBMB Clir Gl»fc«-G»i««t«, MM»B City, I».
