U 'rjf ' Father Finds GlWho Saved Son on D-Day Fort Wayne, Ind. (U.RV It took several months, but Alfred G. Boe-decker, of Milwaukee, Wis., did not give up his long search for the Fort Wayne medical corpsman who saved his son's life on D-Day. The youth in question was Ray Tinkel, 19-year-old hospital apprentice. . Boedecker's son, Carl, wrote to his father and told him that a boy from Fort Wayne with a name something like Raymond Kidder, or Kouther, had worked extra hard to save his life when his ship was struck by a mine D-Day and he was thrown into the sea. , , - Tinkel's LST boat picked up four of the mqn, and after delivering Boe-decker to a hospital, he promised to look him up some day. Carl wanted his father to find out who the boy was, for he felt greatly indebted to him...: The older Boedecker contacted the Chamber of Commerce in Fort Wayne, who took up the search with the aid of the newspapers. When Tinkel arrived home on furlough, his friends asked him about the story and whether or not he knew a Carl Boedecker. : After he said yes, he called tip the Milwaukee lawyer, who requested him to come to that city before his furlough ended. He also promised to visit Carl in a Boston hospital, where he is recovering from amputations of his left foot and right leg.

Harry Le "Shenandoah's Leading Clothier" ? 22-24 South Main Street Christmas Mailing Hints Frackvllle, Dec. 1. According to the local postmaster, John J. Becker, no great rush of mailing Christmas messages to overseas servicemen has developed thus far at the local office. Approximately 100 cards have gone out from the post office every day this week.-' These cards must be placed In sealed envelopes and must bear a three-cent stamp. Mr. Becker stated that the office is experiencing considerable- diffi culty with special delivery letters' and parcels because many of them must We returned because of insufficient postage. The special delivery fee up to two pounds is 13 cents for the special delivery stamp, plus the regular postage. Many patrons make the mistake of mailing an ordinary special delivery letter bearing only 13 cents in stamps. A three-cent stamp is also required, making the total postage 16 cents. Over , two pounds and .up to ten pounds, the special delivery stamp costs 20 cents plus the regular postage. All over ten Pounds, the soeclal delivery fstamp costs 25 cents plus the regular postage. ; . On all second,, third and fourth-class mail the special delivery stamp costs 17 cents up to two pounds, 25 cents from two to ten pounds, and 35 cents above ten pounds. This is in addition to the regular postage, Only soldier mail, such as Christ- mas cards and letters, will travel to foreign countries at the three-cent postage rate. Mail to civilians requires rates applicable to the coun try to which the letter Is addressed, Mr. Becker also stated that it is convenient to have a supply of post age Stamps on hand in the home at all times. - The post Office has convenient books of stamps of the various de nominations, which are securely fastened between waxed sheets to prevent them from sticking. They are handy to carry in a purse or wallet. These books can , be purchased at the local post office at at prices ranging from 25 to 97 cents The following number of stamps, the denomination and the price of the books are as follows: 24, lc stamps 25c; 24, 2c stamps 49c; 48, 2c stamps 97c; 12, 3c stamps 37c; 24, 3c stamps 73c. The post office department is urging the people to mail their pack ages as soon as possible because of the many dominating factors which control the delivery of these pack ages this year. The shortages of manpower and transportation facili ties caused by the war necessitates early mailing. The postal service of the country has given 50,000 ex perienced employes to the armed forces and 300,000 railroad workers have also gone to war. In the majority of the post offices throughout the country the man- power situation is critical. The 200,- 000 extra workers which will have t be recruited for the Christmas period will be composed largely of women, and boys and girls of high school age and therefore the long overtime hours and the heavy work crnnot be expected of tnem. f . The manner in which the general public responded in making possible the handling of the thousands of pieces of -Christmas mail which were sent overseas, assures tne post master and his corps of helpers the full cooperation of the citizens of the town.
