For Those Who Prefer

Everybody has heard about Zip Code.
But not everybody Is using it. Perhaps some people
think of it as Just a favor to the post office-something
to do if they happen to think of it.
But Zip Code is much, much more than that.
Zip helps our postal workers move mail the modem
way. With Zip, they can sort It faster and deliver It by
more direct routes. With Zip, they will use modem elec-
tronic machines that "read" Zip numbers and sort mail
fifteen times faster than was possible before!
People who don’t use Zip Code hold up the mail for
themselves and for everyone else.
So use Zip on every mailing address. Use it on your
return address, too. When in doubt about a Zip Code,
you can call your post office or look it up in their Zip
And if someone writes you and doesn’t use Zip Code
—tell him. For us. We need all the help we can get.
HOW ZIP CODE WORKS
Suppose the Zip Code Is 60635. The "6"
says It goes to the Midwest. The "06"
narrows it down to Chicago. The last two
diglts-"35''-pinpolnt the local post
office. This eliminates many handling pro-
cedures. The letter is sorted faster, and
sent more directly to its destination.
