Because of the great amount of
mail that is lost or has to be returned
to its owners, Mrs. Horatio Abbott,
postmistress of Ann Arbor, urged in
a recent interview that students in-
struct their correspondents of their
correct addresses.
Mrs. Abbott pointed out that many
students when they change their ad-
dresses from year to year fail to
tell their correspondents their new
address, and consequently much mail
has to be returned to its senders or
sent to the dead letter office.
Much Work Arises
She went on to say that letters
and parcels sent to students in care
of the University result in much work
and difficulty in finding the recip-
ient's correct address: Mrs. Abbott
urged that students be particularly
careful in guarding against this.
She told how the An Arbor post-
office sends out more than 35,000 let-
ters every day during the school year,
as well as 200 sacks of parcel post
and about 10,000 flat circulars. This
is an unusually large amount of out-
going mail for a city of this size, the
postmistress said.
Incoming mail during the school
year amounts to more than 75,000 let-
ters; 4,000 pieces of parcel post and a
very large amount of flat circulars,
Mrs. Abbott pointed out. There are
also about 250 specialdelivery letters
received each day, she said.
Amount Drops
At the time the University is not in
regular session the amount of mail
drops considerably, Mrs. Abbott
pointed out. However, she stated,
the incoming postage increases great-
ly at the opening of the Summer
The local post office employs about
100 clerks, carriers and truck drivers
at the present time.

the general election. In so doing, he
acceded to the plea of James M.
Kane, attorney for the state high-
way department, who appeared for
the defendants.
Pleas of not guilty were entered
for Bingham and Finch, and they
were released upon their own recog-

the charge. Finch made no state-
The warrants were drawn under a

Dodge Presents
Theory Friday
Meeting Is At Princeton,
N. J., To Hear Professor
Explain Developments
Prof. Stanley Dodge, of the geo-
graphy department, will present his
theory that depopulation areas -
places where the population has de- i
clined 50 per cent-and uplands or
the boundaries of trade areas coin-
cide geographically, at a meeting Fri-
day of the Population Association of
America at Princeton, N.J.
Professor Dodge, who has been de-
veloping this theory ever since writ-
ing his Ph.D. thesis on the subject,
will probably spend next summer in
New England trying to find the so-!
ciological reasons for depopulation in
certain areas, he said.
Certain parts of New England he
said, have never had any population;
others have had their population rise
to a maximum from about 1830 to
1840 and then decline until now they
are more than 50 per cent below that
Recently Professor Dodge discov-
ered that these areas followed closely
the divisions on the trade area map,
he said. Upon completing a map with
both kinds of areas plotted, he found
this theory to be generally true. But
he still has no idea as to why this
should be so, he said.
Professor Dodge first became in-
terested in depopulation phenomena
when several years back he noticed a
peculiar fact about thedriveways of
houses on the main roads leadingj
from a town, he said.
It seems, according to Professor!
Dodge, that for a certain distance
along t he road, all the driveways
turned to face the town. However
after a certain distance, he found
that they all began to face in the
other direction-toward the next
town. The peculiar fact was that
many of the houses in between these
two oppositely faced driveways were
abandoned, he said. After a great
deal of investigation he found this
to be true on most roads, he said.

"To a service my roommate suggested.
I's quick and it's neat and
It just cawn't be beat - and the
VA LUE just cawn't be bested."
