With summer almost over, it’s time to be thinking about
getting ready for school again. And for increasing numbers of
youngsters who attend schools and colleges away from home,
there’s the problem right now of how to keep a wardrobe at
home until the last minute without risking getting to school
end having nothing to wear.
Most teen-agers usually want to keep a full wardrobe at home
for the long Labor Day week-end. Two days later they may >e
needing the same clothes at school 500 miles away. If they’ -e
not driving, they may be wondering how to ship that heavy
trunk and have it waiting for them, when they arrive.
Don’t panic. In moat cases, trunks can be delivered by air
door-to-door anywhere in the United States within 24 hours,
saving up to a week or 10 days shipping time. And the cost is
surprisingly low. An Air Express shipment of a 70-pound trunk,
for instance, costs under $lO for distances up to 500 miles. Thit
includes pick-up at home and delivery to school by REA
Express truck with no special arrangements made for drayman
haulage at either end.
Something else worth keeping in mind: Fresh laundry or for
gotten items of clothing go fastest by Air Express. Packages
weighing several pounds, which surface truckers in most cssjs
won’t bother with, travel anywhere in the United States over
night for only slightly more than $4.
