It was explained that the Seals may be obtained at Reed's Drug Store, Mifflinburg and at the Lewis- burg Post Office. Due to the num- ber of requests received last year from mothers wishing to show their sons that they are protectng "the health front" at home, the Society decided to make Seals available now for service-men's mail. Christmas Seals on packages to boys .and girls overseas will remind them that we are working on the home front. The Christmas Seal is a symbol of the fight, for health which is essential to the better world we are trying to build. The sender may mail one parcel a week to the same addressee. It is urged by the Postmaster that packages be mark- ed "Christmas parcel". ]~t_S 80~DY BEF_2q" KIDDING US? "W~GTON, Sept. 12-- Surpluses rather tha~'shortages have suddenly .become the na- tion's major food problem." UNION COUNTIANS TRAVEL TO HUNTINGDON BY AEROPLANE Oscar Norris: superintendent of the Huntingdon Throwing Mills of Miff- linburg and Mrs. Norris, accompan- ied by the former's brother, Rev. C. Gaff Noris, pastor of the Beaver Memorial Methodist Church of Lew- isburg, enjoyed a birthday dinner with their father, C. J. Norris at Huntingdon, Friday noon. The plane, which was piloted by the Rev. Mr. Norris, arrived in Huntingdon one hour after leaving the Sunbury Airport. Mrs. Norris and Mrs. Paul E. Bro- sius, wife and daughter, respectively of the honored guest, were also at the dinner. ..__.~-- ~ .---.-- IIOSPITAL AUXILIABY DRIVE PROG~ING The Evangelical Hospital Auxili- ary's drive for new members is pro- gressing nicely, Mrs. Carolyn Leit- zel said today, and she is hoping the goal of $1500 will be reached. Some of the work done by the Auxiliary has been to buy the bas- sinets, bathing table, germicidal lamp and other equipment for the nursery. At present kitchen equip- ment is badly needed and the Aux- iliary is hoping to raise money to heap buy this as well as to replace towels, patients' gowns and the like when the present supplies wear out. g Dr. Frank P. Boyer, superinten- dent of Union County Schools, has distributed 300 bags to the schools of the county for the collection of milk weed pods which will be used for the manufacture of life savers for use by service men. The cam- paign which is being promoted prin- cipally by the school children, will continue until alI of the pods have been collected. Dr. Boyer stated that some of the county schools have filled their quote and have asked for additional bags. The bags should not be filled to the brim, or the pods will not dry properly. They should be filled to the one,bushel mark, and then the tops securely tied. A welt-exposed fence is a good place for drying. The bags should be kept at least one foot off the ground, and should be exposed to the sun and wind. They sLould not be piled on the ground or floor for more than a few hours. The pods replace Kapok, a silky seed-pod fiber, for life jackets. Ka- pok is found only in Java, now in the hands of the flaps, and the nor- mal supply is shut off. Milkweed pt. 1 The time for the heavy mailing of packages to personnel of the armed forces overseas is about at hand and ,t is the desire of William L. Doe- bier, Postmaster of the Mifflinburg Post Office and the employees to help in every way possible to get packages to your boys over there. ~l-here have been some slight changes in the rulings relative to mailing, such packages and there are several things Mr. Doebler would like to bring to all mailer's attention so that the clerks will not be required to i]old up packages. For Chirstmas packages from [~eptember 15th to October 1~ you are entitled to mail one package per week to one soldier or sailor or a total of four packages from one per- son to another. All packages MUST be addressed plainly with Ink--pencil will not pass. All boxes must be of strong ma- terial---a shoe box is not heavy enough and will not pass. It is permissable and advisable to put the address inside the package as well as on the outside cover. When mailing with a request it is now required that the Postal Clerk Postmarks the Envelope as welt as the letter with the request. Do not fail to bring the envelope along, for packages will not be accepteft with- out both . If all patrons will follow these few simple requirements it will be a great help in the big task ahead.
