CONCERNING ARMY SUBSCRIPTIONS IN FOREIGN HAIL Beginning with February 1 the Upper Des Molnes may not be mailed to army personnel In foreign- service without the request of the boy Who wants the paper and that request O. K.'d 'by his commanding officer. That request will be filed with the paper showing that he wants the paper. Hereto? fore relatives and friends have mailed papers to the boys but there lias been such a tremendous loss of damaged newspapers as well as so large problem in getttng tons upon tons of. papers to the adressees that it was found mecessary to make some restrictions. .Boys who are already subscribers to the pa- p'er must make request in writing and have it approved by his com^ mander that he wants to renew his subscription, ibefore we are allowed to renew the subscription. When such rules are complied with we stamp .upon the wrapper "Mailed In compliance with P. O. D. order No. 19687," and the postal departments accepts the mailing. Theru- fore, relatives and frfends of boys in foreign service must have them ask for he paper wit htheir officers O. K. and in turn this is filed with the newspaper, before the names can be placed on the newspaper list. We hope we have made th'fl plain. The order does not apply to members of the navy, marine corps or coast guarj. Hero Msgr.
