THIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR when lots of people head for the lake, the seashore, the mountains or on a vacation tour. No matter where they go, vacationers don't usually have any trouble sending ready-made postcards and letters to the home folks; what is really needed is quick messages for the stay-at-homes to send to the vacationers. As a public service, Woman's World means to remedy this situation with this all-purpose letter. Just check the item that applies in your case, place it in a stamped, addressed envelope, and don't forget the zip code. - o DEAR BOR, • HUSBAND, WIFE, MOTHER, NEIGH- Sweetheart, Daughter, Fellow Worker, Son, Debtor: 1.
