PAGE 14—KAUGATOCK NEWS (CONN.), FRIDAY, NOV. 25, 1IM!) Christmas Cards Won't Be Mailed For 11-2 Cents Dont' try to mail your Christmas cards this year with 1 l-2c stamps. Postmaster F. T. Green warned today* By way of explanation he pointed out that the postage rate on unsealed greeting cards, which travel by third class mail, was raised to 2c last January. So don't try to mail this year's Tule greetings with 1 l-2c stamps left over from last Christmas, he cautioned. All sorts of embarrassing things may happen— Tour mail carrier may return the cards to you stamped, "InHufll- cicnt Postage.' Or they may be held until thu addressee supplies the additional postage required by the new law before the mysterious envelope—which turns out to be your "Merry Christmas' wish—may be delivered to him. Of your cards may be shunted into the Dead Letter Office if they're deposited at the peak of the Christmas mailing rush and they bear no return address. To preserve your cheery Christmas cards from these indignities, the Postmaster recommends sending them all by first class mail. That means with a 3c stamp—or two 1 l-2c stamps! First class mail rates "directory service," by which skilled post office clerks try to trace down addressees who have moved. Your card may be forward^ from one address to another. It the ad- clrcsHOp isn't located, tho ?a.rd will come back to you if thn envelope bears your return address. Clirtatmnj* cards carrying 2c stamps are third class mall.. They must not he sealed and must not contain personal massages. Only one clYart. is made to deliver them. If the address proves incom- pete or incorrect, your warmhearted Christmas greetings land in the Dead Letter Office. Annual Development Hartford.
