Postmaster Gould averred inai
no serious congestion of mail is
anticipated.
No Serious Delay.
"Much of the additional work im
posed by the Christmas season is
accomplished adequately by the
regular inside and outside staff,"
he explained. "We have learned
that it is far better policy to let
the clerks and carriers put in all
possible overtime work, because
they are more familiar with the
handling of excess mail in emer
gencies." The volume of holiday mail did
not begin to show evidences of the
coming season until late last week,
postal authorities reported. It was
predicted that the mails of late in
the week will exceed any previous
season.
