By Russ Waller » * ; * • A Hp of the hat fo Jess, Lashbrook and his street department force who originated and. constructed the new school stop signs to be found in the center of school intersections during the necessary hours. These signs leave 1 no roorri for doubt as .to What motorists should do when the signs are there... they should stop. Seems like we have had a number of different ideas used on the matter of school intersections, including costly ones ,like installation of professional signs,, and stationing of men with red flags (which it is estimated would cost about $4,000 a year, to cpn- tinue), but this one seems about as simple and p/actical as it could possibly be,"and least misunderstood by a driver — and it's all home-grown. . * * * In talking to one 'member of the Air Force group who finally got back from Florida last week after considerable delay, he remarked that "the trip couldn't have been- more snafued if they had been working on how to foul it up'for six months." And here we thought 'that modern methods had removed likelihoods of those old-time snafus ... it is good to know that things \ are operating- about as normal . . . and a good time was had by all. • •* * * i Harry Thilges : was commenting on his plans to smoke sausage.

Ideal Mail Must N6w Hal Complete Street Post Office Department has instituted a new system of putting up city carrier delivery mail at first class offices. There will be nb ri'ames on the carrier delivery cases, only street numbers of the patrons Will be on them. Therefore it. is very necessary' that anyone sending mail to people in Algbna must have the street and number on the letter in order to facilitate delivery, The post office has no list of patrons or their 'numbers any more so that it is impossible for the clerks and carriers to .look up a name without a street number on the letter. Therefore all. local mailers are urged to be sure and have the street and number on all letters where it may seen. The telephone book be is fairly accurate as to street numbers as is the city director. Every letter must have the complete address. . : All people receiving mail delivery in boxes on posts must have their names on the boxes in addition to their street and number.
