Transportation of the mall sometimes minst be postponed so that More urgent needs for arms, food, or more military and navy personnel may be filled iflrst. • Although malls are dispatched at every opportunity, at times the overburdened facilities cannot accommV date all the mall and It must be held until shipping is available. Ships most travel In convoys, in the interest of safety, and a convoy can ;only start when the last ship is loaded and can travel only as fast as the slowest ship In the group—all of which consumes time. Transfers of 'personnel from one point to another also 'adds to the time required for mall to catch up with >men shifted. Some of the public are under the misapprehension that the post office department can provide the addresses and locations of soldiers and sailors and marines abroad. The postal service has no such records. When it is necesary to obtain such addresses of 'soldiers they may be had from the office of the Adjutant General, war department, Washington, D. C.; to sailors from the Bureau of Nava*l Personnel, Navy Department, Washington, D. C.; and of marines, .from the Marine Corps Headquarters, Navy Department Building, Washington, D. C.
