Postmaster Reports
Fast-Mail Handling

weeks of inertia on the part of!
the Yuletide gift senders, the Ann1
Arbor postoffice is finally getting
back to normal running order, ac-
cording to Postmaster A. C. Pack.

report said, was one of general im-
provement in the mail handling at
the central office. It would seem,
that the general public has at last
found ways to "do their Christmas
mailing early." The only real dis-
advantage, Pack said, came in the
