Pseudo-Santas Told to Mail Christmas Parcels, but Early
Reviewing the requirements for Christmas gift-mailing to forces overseas, the Post Office Department has again established limited dates--September 15 to October 15--during which times presents may be shipped without special requests from the addressee.
With an expected 90,000,000 parcels due to pass through A.P.O. New York alone during the 30 day period, authorities have made special provisions for the handling of the traffic, but the public must cooperate by adhering to the packaging regulations.
Maximum weight will be five pounds, and the extra-strong cartons required cannot exceed 15 inches in length, nor 36 inches in length and girth combined.
