Previous Established Business
Records Surpassed
This Year
Records l'or lieavy. Christmas mail
were surpassed during the season
just closed, according to Postmaster
M. M. Cusack this morning. During
the last three days of the Yuletide
rush more business was transacted
than in any one week in previous
years. .
••This year was the biggest by far
in v the history of the office," the
Postmaster declared. "The employes
worked harder to clear away the
mails and, as the result, we did not
experience any congested incoming
and outgoing mails," Postmaster
Cusack said.
According to the Postmaster, this
year's rush was an increase of al
most fifty per cent, over that of last
year. All packages which could be
distributed were disposed oT until
noon yesterday.
The clean-up drive on the Christ
mas Day mail was started at 4.30
o'clock yesterday morning, when
trucks were sent to the llarrisburg
terminal for the mail, instead of
waiting for the train deliveries,
which would have been made about
S o'clock. This move enabled office
employes to dispose of much ot the
mail in the 7 o'clock deliveries.
In order to take care of the rush,
Postmaster Cusack placed several
additional employes on the state and
asked the regular men to work ovei
ti rn o.
