Heralded as “The Great Amer‘

the basic design of the 1931 car
which, from the standpoint, of pub

Heretofore letters addressed by
children to the patron j ahnt ol
j Christmas, which found iheir way
j here have been the greatest problem
of the post office staff, but this
year outgoing mall will cause un
precedented congestion.
Direct-by-nmil advertisers and
firms that mail Christmsfi. cards
and gilts for clients have notified
the post office department at Wash
ington they plan extensive mailing
from here thin year so the letters
and packages —;J1 be postmarked

"Santa Claus.
As a resuit, two special mailing
machines capable of postmarking
40,000 letters per hour are being
shipped here, and special clerks fa
miliar with their operation will
swell the post office stail.
This development in the growing
popularity of Santa Claus, Ind., has
caused reports tliat steps will be
taken by post office officials at
Washington to have the name of
the office changed.
But this year the officials can
only grin and bear it, and arrange
for many more than the almost one
million pieces of mail sent from
here last year by people who first
thought of the "Santa Claus" post
mark idea.
Washington, Dec. 2 - -The post of
fice department 'has no intention
whatsoever of abolishing Santa
Charles F Trotter superintend
ent of the division of post office
service, said reports to the effect
that Santa Claus, Indiana, might
have its name changed by the de
partment were "absolute nonsense.”
Every year at Christmas time a
flood of mail is sent to the little
town to be postmarked so the let
ters and packages will bear the
magic name.
This results in a ipt of extra work
and John J. Fields, superintendent
of mails at Louisville where the
Sant* Claus mail la sorted and d-fc
patched, said chancing the name o.
the post office was being conala"
"Cnange the name of Sar.^.
