Short Talks on Postal Department to
Be Hade to School Children.
(Aitociated Press Report.)
WASHINGTON September 14. Post -master
General Merer has made an order
which promises beneficent results. The
posTmasters of the country have been di-
rected to confer with their local school
authorities as to the practicability and
desirability of delivering to the school
children short talks on the postal service.
The design Is to Inform the pupils of the
scope of the methods of delivering the
mails classifies! Ion of mail matter and
registery and money order systems. In-
cidentally they are to make known plans
for the betterment such as the estab-
lishment of postal savings banks and the
extension of the parcels post. Wherever
it may be impracticable for postmasters
to deliver lectures they are to furnish the
necessary Information to the school su-
pervisors so as to equip the regular
teachers. It Is the postmaster general
expectation that the school children will
be useful to the postal service in seeing
that letters are properly and plainly au-
dressed. That there Is necessity for action of
the kind Is shown by the volume of busi-
ness transacted by the dead letter office.
During the last year 13.145172 pieces of
mall matter were sent there because the
postmasters were unable to read them.
