Freight Embargo Has Increased
the Parcel Post
Mail at the local post office la. at
present heavier than it has been for
nore than six months. This is especially
true of parcel post due largely
:o the present tieups on the railroad
liecause of express and freight embar- 9
toes. The packages that were received
at the post office last week were 9
musually large and caused the local ,
nail men quite a bit of trouble in their !
Other than tha unusual number of
parcel post packages, the number of m
postal cards, letters, newspapers and
Jther smaller articles coming through
:he main has been almost dodbled.
rhere is no records showing Just the
imount of mall that has been handled
tt the postoffice this week, but those
n charge are sure that this will be a
ecord week for this time of year.
The Increased amount of work at the
postoffice has come at a time when
:he office force is weak." At present
here is a great demand for applicants
n Civil Service work and especially is ||
:his true at the local office.
The present post office force is
nandllng the mail just as rapidly aa
possible and any Inefficient service
will be due to the heavy mall.
The Reasons.
"Has the line been busy?" aaited
he man with a nickel poised between
lis thumb and forefinger.
"No," answered the precise operaor.
"The line wasn't busy; I was."
