ALGONA ENDS WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 13 BoBB/DattN ^^ and • DONaiPOCONNOR, FeeliNG TECHNICOLOR* A UNIVERSAL PICTURE STARTS THURSDAY ie'S ..&:*•» '- / •Seat/ '3iL£fe A new program which provides reliable "Scheduled Service" for parcel post throughout the state of Iowa was announced today by Postmaster W. W, Sullivan. The program provides a scheduled delivery date for any parcel mailed to any of Iowa's 1,006 post offices. The program will be based on a one and two day delivery schedule. Success of the program will depend to a large extent on precision timing In the transferring of bulk malls at major cities throughout the area. The Post Office Department has found, "Postmaster Sullivan said, "that one of the major problems of parcel post service has been lack of dependability of delivery. For many mailers it is often more important to know when a parcel is going to be delivered that it is just to get in there in a hurry." For these reasons the Post Office Department developed the concept of scheduled service. At Algona mailing deadlines for this service will be 3 p. m. In the Scheduled Service area, ZIP Coded parcels will be transported to the destination post office on the fastest available transportation and will be delivered to the addressee on the next day of scheduled parcel delivery. In most cases, ihis will mean next-day parcel service with a maximum of second-day for more distant offices^ Postmaster Sullivan explained, because parcel post deliveries are made five days out of the week. While the postoffice department announcement did not mention it, the development of a delivery system by United Parcel Service has been rapid and to some extent may have been making Inroads on the volume wannm WE'RE 44 YEARS OLD!
