Billion Christmas Greetings Being Mailed; Card Etiquette Is Cited ft ihlj Just By DOKOTKT BOB , tcd Tnm Women's editor ChriJtmai card bites you year, don't b* alarmed. It's another indication of the whimsical ingenuity o« the greeting card manufacture;!. About a billion Chrlitrnit cards are loading th« u. S. mall», and of these at least a million are of the variety known as "novelty." Some of these have a concealed spring device which raps the unwary recipient smartly on the thumb. Others emit flying paper butterflies, elves of Santas. And still others play "Jingle Bells" or recite "Merry Christmas." Now If the manufacturers coutd Just Invent a aelf-addresslng «nd self-mailing card, it would be a merry Christma* Indeed for the millions of citizens at present lolling laboriously through the annual task of addressing, stamping and mailing. Card Etiquette They might also include in each box of cardj a list of rules on greeting card etiquette, such as those worked out recently by one manufacturer, Alvin Barker, as follows: 1. When signing an Informal card, the wife's name comes first, thus: "Mary and John Jones." But in a format card the signature is "Mr. and Mrs. John Jones." 2. Do not combine printing and engraving In personalized cards. 3. Typed envelopes are bad form for greeting cards, as are addresses written In ptncJ). Cards should be addressed by hand, In Ink. 4. Children should sign their cards simply with their full names and no prefix such as "Master" or "Miss". But when lending a card to a child, the address should carry the prefix "Ifr.". "Miss" or "Master". 5. C«rd« «lw«y» should be sent by first cl«s« mall. If you can't afford a three-cent stamp, don't send a card. t. Always Include a return address, In case the'csrd fails to reach its destination. 7. A brother and sister or a family may send out a Joint card but engaged couples always should send individual cards. B. Christmas cards need not be acknowledged by the recipient. 9. Never send Christmas cards, even the solemn or religious kind, lo persons IT mourning for less than three months. 10. A widow «lgns her cards "Mary Jones" or "Mrs. John Jones" but never "Mrs. Mary Jones". Stamp Securely 11. Avoid highly giazed or gad- Kety cards which cannot be processed through regular postoffice machinery, >i they cause Increased delay and often get damaged. Other btU of sage advice are: mall early and address clearly — otherwise your card* may be among the X per cent that don't arrive in time for Christmas, or never get there at all. Be sure stamp« are glued on securely. Lots of them come off every year, becaus* people are likely to be careless when stamping several hundred card» at one sitting.
