Upper DM MeiftM-3 Humboldt To Get New Postof f ice It was stated in an announcement from the post office department this week that Humboldt will have a new post office building by Jan. 1. 1950. It will be built by a private individual and leased to the government, following the present post office trend. Mr and Mrs Ben P. St. John will finance the erection of the 40 x 00 foot brick block building on North Taft Street in that city. A home now on the site will either be moved or torn down to make room for the structure.. There will be 2.480 square- feet of first floor space and 200 square feet of dock area, and if a basement is included, that space will be turned into offices to be rented to local persons. Due to the size of the national debt, the post office department is now leasing buildings such as he one in Humboldt, instead of building its own as in the past. The department takes a 10 year lease, with one five-year renewal option. The government has already leased similar buildings BLANKET SALE SPECIAL ! 100°o ALL-WOOL 3-LB.
