DECEMBER 1933 MASON CITY GLOJJE-GAZETTE ELEVEN EXPRESS AGENCY EXPECTS GROWTH Increase in Business for Holidays and 1934 Is Looked For. 'With the approach of the holidays, there ace. signs of slowly improving business conditions and increased public buying power, is the opinion of C. C. Halphide, agent of the Railway Express agency in this city. "We are preparing: for increased shipping," said Mr. Halphide, "Not only during the next few weeks before Christmas, but very'definitely in 1931. In fact, we are now engaged in a business-build ing campaign We call 'a new deal' in express business and are confident that it will help speed along President Roosevelt's recovery plan." Improvement Expected. Evidence that holiday shipping is expected to be better than last year is given in the fact that two million special Christmas package address labels have been distributed throughout the express system for the convenience of holiday shippers. A sup- COUGH . . . Real Throat relief 1 Medicated with ingredients of Vicks VapoRub OVERCOMES BAD-BREATH ply is available at the local express office. The express representative offers some timely suggestions on the packing and addressing of gift shipments to insure prompt and safe arrival at this very busy period in the transportation business. These are important because much of the holiday traffic comes from Infrequent shippers. Use plenty of good wrapping paper and twine and if the contents are fragile, so indicate on the package. Special "Fragile" and "Glass" labels are obtainable for shipments with contents of that nature. 1'hoy Must Bead. The complete and legible addressing of packages Is of vital importance as .illegible or incorrect 'marks" often cause delays Jn tfans- it. Owing to the growth of so many small towns which have become sizable cities, express people urge that the complete street address of the receiver of a package be indicated in the address. Care in writing the name of state, especially when abbreviations are used, is also important. There are dozens ot cities and towns of the same name located in different states. If the state name la abbreviated in such a way as to suggest the wrong state location, packages may go astray, no matter what care is taken by transportation people in handling them. 2,000 Attend Meeting".
