Titonka Fourth Graders Visit Their Post Office TITONKA - As a climax to studying correct letter writing and mailing procedures, the fourth grade classes of Titonka School were accompanied by their teachers, Mrs. Mary Baade and Mrs. Regina DeVries, on a visit to the Titonka post office on April 30. Upon the classes' arrival to the post office, Mr. Dick Gerdis, postmaster, greeted them and showed them where to post the business letters they had written recently to request free educational materials. On the first leg of the tour the children discovered that letters mailed inside the post office fall into seperate containers and not onto the floor. They watched how mail is sorted before t departure and saw the incoming-mail receiving and sorting areas. After observing the rural route distribution table, several children were shown the sorting slots into which their family's mail is sorted. The students also learned that green dots on the floor indicate a "no smoking" zone. During alengthy question and answer session that followed students learned more about the purchasing of postage stamps, the "Wanted" posters, and the handling of packages. Mr. Gerdis drew the tour to a close by giving each student a booklet explaining the operation of the Zip Code system, and a button encouraging the use of the zip code, -o- ENGELBARTS SHOWER Miss Beth Engelbarts bride- elect of Steve Voyles was honored at two gatherings in Algona.
