i Sunday, June , IV36 Will Deliver Bonds June 17 Postmaster Asks El Paso Veterans To Remain At Home That Day. M. L. Burleson, El Paso postmaster, expects to start delivering approximately $1,500,000 worth of veterans' bonds June 17. Two thousand nine hundred twenty six bonds are scheduled to be mailed here June 15 from Dallas. Burleson emphasized that all those bonds might not be mailed at one time. If they arrive on the early morning train June 16 some of the bonds may be delivered that day. However, Burleson has set June 17 lor the day of delivery. The bonds will be registered and will be delivered by the carrier only to the addressee. A return receipt will be requested from him. If the veteran is not home, the car rier will leave a notice. There will be one night delivery in the effort to catch veterans at home, who have-bc misseda- the- daylight delivery. Veterans Can Help. Burleson pointed out veterans tvujd be of considerable assistance in the handling of the delivery of the boijds if they would be at the place of their address June 17 at the mail delivery hours. Veterans , must cither be known or identified to the carrier. .Some veterans have moved out of El Paso since applying for the bonds. Burlesun said bonds could not be forwarded, but there could be a change made in a local ad dress. If a veteran is out of the city he can request the postoffice to hold his bond for 30 days. A number of veterans who have moved away, have already written Burle!.')ii to do that. If the bond is not claimed in 30 days, it will be returned to the sender. The veteran then will have lo make arrangements through some disbursing officer for the bond to be delivered to him. May Cash Bonds. A certificate, a part of the bond, is there for the veteran who de sires to cash his bond. That must be filled out by the veteran in the presence of specially designated postoffice employes. The veteran must have two witnesses who are known to postoffice employes on the certifying job. Veteran organ izations will furnish these wit nesscs. Tost 2753, Veterans of For eign Wars, appointed Charles Por-ras and H. C. Garcia to assist in identifying veterans. Veterans who receive their bonds in general delivery mail will have to be identi' ficd. After the receipt is executed, the postoffice employe will take the bond and give the veteran an in terim receipt. The postoffice will make out the check, but that cannot be handed over to the veteran. The regulation is the check must be mailed to the veteran in a special envelope. The postoffice has those envelopes on hand. Burleson said he would not know until this week whether the certifying procedure would be carried out in the present Federal Building or the new United States Courthouse. . When the veteran gets his check, he can cash that at a bank or business house. .Main 2)2i). THE EL PASO TIMES-E1 Prickly Pear Leaves Served As Tasty Dish Ballinger (AP).
