Get In On The- Rip-Roarin' PERCIVAL MOTORS "Always Looking For Ways To Do It Better" WILD BILL HICKOK CONTEST Fear was being expressed in the Ledyard area, this week, that a move might be underway, to eliminate the Ledyard postoffice. Since the recent retirement of George Thompson, Ledyard rural carrier, no replacement has been mnde, and the rural mail is now beins routed to Swea City and handled by the Swea City rural carriers. The postal receipts thus will go to the Swea City office. Ledyard patrons suspect that if postal receipts are diminshed m this way from the Ledyard postoffice, the • next move from the Postoffice Department will be to drop the Ledyard postoffice with the excuse that there "isn't enough business to warrant the Ledyard postoffice to be kept open." This same procedure, it is pointed out, has been used in some other areas where service has been .eventually curtailed. Ledyard residents are talking about makine up a petition to the Postoffice Department, asking that another rural carrier be named for Ledyard, in order to maintain the postal service as it is at Ledyard. One Ledyard patron said that "when a rural carrier retires and no 'replacement is made, the handwriting is on the wall for our postoffice." There has been no official pronouncement from the Postoffice Department which would indicate that the Ledyard post- office might be closed,'but because .-of failure to make a,rural carrier'replacement, some/patrons are serjously worried .about the matter. "' K A year or so ago there was a move toward elimination of post- offices at Irvington and Sexton, on the basis that neither had sufficient business to warrant continuation. Patrons in tha nrea obiected, and the postofficea are still in operation. NOTES OF SERVICE MEN v Every Boy or Girl Who Enters Gets A DEPUTY MARSHAL BADGE ) F-R-E-E-!
