TUESDAY,-" DECEMBER 5, 1989 Accused by Gestapo In Hitler Bomb Plot JBLYTHEVJLLB, (ARK.) COURIER'NEWS Pieces From Over World Sent Chiefly For Postmarking CHRISTMAS, Pla. (UP)—A seasonal Ijooiii in goal cheer Is report-. ccl from (his famous Immlet of 200 population as K.liOay pnckagKi letter.'; and cards pour into tin- tiny posioffice from remotest, sections of the world. African misiionarite, children frcm the Bronx and oven persons from (lie war zones of Europe sent Uieir holiday mall here lor what lias become an official slump of Yulelide approval—"Greetings from Clutslmtis, Pla." some persons desired complete authenticity /or their Christmas cards and nskeil that they ue remailed from here to Santa ctaus, Ind.. for furtlier postmarking. This is the only poslofficc named Christmas in the United States Tlic town Is 102 years old, having survived attacks frcm hostile Indians and severe battles during ilia Civil War, The town was held for a time by the Union army during the Civil Wnr, Protests Save Office Then the Postoificc Department, attempted to eliminate postal status of Hie town, but combined protests cf Christmas' residents, stamp collectors and the Florida Congressional delegation staved off the threatened oblivion. Although the crop cf mail is n bumper, Postmistress Juanita Tucker is having an easier time of it than she lias in the past. For one . thing, she has a postofficc building. For another, she has an electric stumping machine and cancellation machine. Previously, she had to do all the work by hand, and never did she gel through a Christmas season without having to call In help. People who want to bo different are sending packages here, accompanied by letters nntl stamp money, and asking that they be rcwranped and sent to friends. Packages make up m:st of the mail. Greeting cards rank second. Letters are last. N'cw liccord Expected last year, more than 70,000 pieces of mail—a record tor Christmas— \yere cancelled. This year, Miss flicker expects to break that record. Judging from the present pile of mail, the European War is having little 01- 11: effect on her business, and tourists already coming South arc coming off the beaten path to ninif'crtrds from Christmas. Christmas boasts first of its name; second of its sculptor — Hughlette Wheeler, the only man of his trade ever to do a three- quarter statue of the late humorist, jWiil Rogers, astride his horse. ~ Wheeler is typical of- the. cowpunchers who Inhabit this community.

In itself, but (he conflict- pressures hack of it are even more so. There are rivalries between beet sugar producers and cane sugar producers, between sugar growers in the vontiiiciUnl United Slates and (lie "oll.shoro" growers In Hawaii and Puerto Rico, between all-America ung producers and the producers in Cuba-—with Hie prciUiceis in the Philippines coming in ns a further j complicating factor. M.VUKKTING QUOTAS ARE SUSPENDED The existing Inw Is due to expire ill the end of next year. To all intents and purposes it has expired already, since the. President sus- pciKled the marketing quotas early in the fall when the "war boom" sent prices up. He can revive it at any time, however, by restoring those quoins.
