Fruit & Vegetable Cose ^f^m^m^^^ Pictured above is ihe fruits & vegetables department in the new Mood super market. Everything that should be under eVen, steady refrigeration is, and at just the right temperature to insure giving you the crisp, fresh fruits and vegetables that make for a well-balanced diet. From the moment that Hood's fruits and vegetables are delivered by refrigerated trucks until they either go into the fruit & vegetable cooler or out to the case pictured here, there is only an interval of a few seconds that they are not under the proper refrigeration. Housewives know what that means when it comes to serving fresh, wholesome fruits and vegetables to the family. General View of New Store One camera cannot record the entire floor space area in Hood's new store, but this is a general view, looking from in front of the checkout counter. 'Mqil Early' Is Postoffice Plea "It's time to start those Christmas mailings!" Postmaster W. W. Sullivan warned today, launching his 1955 "Mail Early for Christmas" campaign. The Post Office has already dispatched a tremendous quantity of gift packages headed for members of the Armed Force? overseas. Christmas cards for service personnel can still be delivered in time if they are sent by air mail before Dec. 1. In the U.S.A.. smart people are now mailing gifts to friends and relatives living in other stales. Postmaster Sullivan especially calls on housewives to help in his effort to deliver every package and Christmas caixi before Dec 25. He urges that you take the following steps at once: Get out your Christmas card list and carefully check through it. Then, pay a visit to the Post Office, stock up on stamps and ask any questions you may have about mniling regulations. Be sure to put a return address on all let- ters and packages. You can do this in a leisurely way if you will come to the Post Office before 10:30 a.m, or between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. thus missing the rush hours.
