Though weather such as prevails
now is not conducive to thoughts of

nevertheless, Postmaster II. A. J.
McDonald spent a part of today mak

for the new postofhee building. His
estimates showed that there are 77
windows, some of them double ones,
in the building and in addition four
sets of double doors and three single
doors that will require screens. The
government specifications call for
screens of solid bronze with quarter
sawed oak frames. In getting his
requisition in now, Mr. McDonald is
simply taking time by the forelock as

be secured before they are actually
