What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

The calendar says Christmas is only a month away, but in the Dillon Post O ffice it w ill be Christmas every day from now on.” ' The postm aster went on to say that by getting into action now, a lo t o f headaches can be avoided when the full Christmas rush be gins. For example, don’t take any chances on mailing poorly wrapped packages. Use sturdy corrugated m ailing cartons, heavy paper, ad­ hesive tape and strong cord. Car­ tons containing several g ift pack­ ages should be fully stuffed with tissue or old newspapers to cush­ ion the contents. Check With P.O.— I f you have articles o f unusual size or-bulk;, better check w ith the Post O ffice before attem p ting to m ail them — the lim its on size and weight o f packages vary, de­ pending on where you^mail them from . A s an extra precaution, it's always a good idea to place an extra label carrying both your re­ turn address and the recipient’s address inside the carton or pack­ age. Mailing Christmas Cards— Andrus also suggests, “ B e sure to send your Christmas cards by first class mall. When sent first class, your cards are delivered quicker, and they'll be forwarded or returned, if it becom es neces­ sary. Also, they m ay carry w rit­ ten messages along with your s ig­ nature.” The postm aster says It’s especi­ ally Important t o include your re­ turn address on every Christmas card envelope. Besides, being soci­ ally. correct, this is a b ig help to both you and y o u r friends In keep­ ing y o u r m ailing lists up-to-date. Through the fine cooperation o f Harry Andrus the public during recent years, An­ drus reports that great progress has been made in getting the Christmas mails through on time. He is making many advance prep­ arations to handle the 1962 Christ­ mas mail rush, with extra mail clerks, carriers, and expanded fa ­ cilities all1 around. Mall Early, Often— “ Mall Early and O ften!” is the postm asters’ special slogan fo r this year’s \M ail Early for Christ­ mas” campaign. It looks like a record year for Christmas mall and that’s why the Postmaster w ill especially appreciate your help in getting started now on your Christmas mailings. , Christmas cards and gifts for m ost distant points should be mailed first, preferably w ell before December 10th. Those fo r nearby points should be m ailed by De­ cem ber 15th, or a t least a week before Christmas.
