The war over, but there are
hundreds of thousands of Ameri
ca's fighting men still overseas, who
will not be home for Christmas who
will be dreaming of Christmas as
they remember it back home. They
will be engaged in the dutl job of
clearing enemy territory and oc
cupying it.
Christmas mailing for their pack
ages will start on September 15.
and will continue until October 15
according to the Army and Navy
postal officials. Overseas packages
will be more dillicult to deliver
safely and on time this year, ac
cording to the authorities. The
reason is because this year many
thousands of men are moving to
ne wassignnients across oceans and
There are no changes in the size
or regulations of the packages, it
was learned from Col. J. Harden
Howell, Waynesville postmaster,
who urges early mailing.
Packages that are badly wrapped,
incompletely addressed, or tardily
mailed stand far less chance of ar
riving in good condition at then
overseas destination this year than
ever before. A Christmas package
that falls apart during its long
journey is worse than no package
at all because it takes up valuable
cargo space uselessly, is a waste of
time and money, and subjects the
addressee to unpleasant and need
less disappointment the officials
point out.
Some In Bad Condition
"When perishable gifts packed
in faulty boxes arrived at distant
Pacific bases," said Frances Todd
of Washington. 1). C, who has just
returned from the China-Burma-1
nd ia theater where she worked for
the American Red Cross, "liiey
were in pretty bad condition. I
have seen burst packages, their
contents broken, decayed or spoil
ed. They were of no use to any
one." Every effort, however, is made
to re-wrap and forward whatever
can be salvaged from such a mess,
according to Elizabeth Cu-hii: of
Ciroton, Mass., whose A urican
Keel Cross service in the rl'O took
her to Prance. "If a card j.- a sheet
of paper inside a disintegrated
Christmas box contains the com
plete name and address of the per
son to whom the gift was sent,
whatever can be saved is forward
ed . Army postal oflicials make a
practice of doing this wherever it
is humanly possible. Too often,
however, nothing can be done.
Most of the waste and expense
and disappointment can be avoid
ed, government postal officials de
clare, if persons who select, wi ip
and mail Christmas gift packages
for delivery overseas will be guid
ed by a few simple rules:
Select Wisely. Send only gifts
that are realy wanted. Write a
letter beforehand. Ask your sol
dier or sailor in the letter what he
wants most, and tell him to list
articles in the order of their im
portance to him.
Don't send articles which are
prohibited, such as perishable
foods, intoxicants, weapons, poisons
and all inflammable materials, in
cluding matches and lighter fluids.
Don't send fruit cake. Don't send
cookies or soft candies unless they
are securely packed in air-light
metal containers.
Don't send marmalade unless
specifically requested. Most men
overseas prefer jams and preserves
such as raspberry, strawberry, etc
Go easy on gifts of clothing, unless
specifically requested. And NO
TIES. Soldiers usually have all
the ties they need; and in many
areas of the Pacific where ihe cli
mate is hot, ties are not customarily
worn at all.
Wrap Securely. All articles for
overseas shipment should be pack
ed in boxes of metal, wood, solid
fibreboard or strong double-faced
corrugated fibreboard, that will
stand up under the weight of at
least 200 pounds. NEVER use a
shoe box.
The War Production Board has
authorized manufacture of boxes
approximately 10 by 6 by 4 inches
in size, which will permit com
pact packing within the five
pound weight limit. The box should
be securely tied with a strong cord.
If waterproof paper can be obtain
ed, it should be used as the out
side wrapper. Best way to ship
