INSTRUCTIONS FOE SENDING
CHRISTMAS BOXES TO OUR
SOLDIERS "OVER THERE.
The War and Post Office Depart
ments and the American Red Cross
have made an arrangement by which
every man in the army overseas may
receive a Christmas Parcel from his
family or friends. The amount of
shipping space which can be set
aside for the transportation of these
parcels will permit the sending of
but one parcel to each man.
Each soldier overseas will be pro
vided with one Christmas Parcel
label. This will be forwarded by
him to the person in the United
States from whom he wishes to re
ceive his Christmas package. Pack
ages that do not bear this label will
not be accepted by the Red Cross
for delivery to the Post Office au
thorities. Labels that are lost will
not be depulicated.
Christmas Parcels must be placed
in standard cardboard boxes 3x4x9
inches in size. These boxes will be
provided to holders of labels by the
American Red Cross. They may be
obtained at Red Cross Chapters cr
branches after November 1st.
On the next page is a list of ar
ticles which are barred by the
Postal authorities. Study these in
structions and avoid mistakes. No
message or writing of any kind will
be allowed to go in the boxes. When
the boxes are packed, but unwrapped
they must not weigh more than 2
lbs. 15 ozs. If the parcel is over
weight, some article must be re
moved. Do" not mail the box yourself.
When packed, the box unsealed and
unwraped. ready for 'inspection,
should be taken to the nearest col
lection station designated by the Red
Cross. Red Cross representatives
are authorized to remove objection
able articles from parcels. Shippers
will then affix sufficient postage on
their parcels to carry them to Ho
boken, N. J., Parcel post zone rates
will be charged. The parcels are
to remain in custody of the Red
Cross until delivered to the postal
No Christmas parcel will be ac
cepted by the Red Cross for ship
ment after November If.. Keep this
fact in mind when planning a Merry
Christmas for the boys "Over There."
One Package For Every Soldier.
The following is an outline of the
procedure to be followed by persons
planning to send one of these par
On receiving one of these Christ
mas Parcel labels, it should be pre
sented at the nearest chapter, branch
or auxiliary headquarters' of the Red
Cross, where the holder wil receive
a carton. Thse labels are not ex
pected to reach this country before
November 1, by that time each Red
Cross Chapter will have its allot
ment of boxes based on the number
of soldiers in service overseas from
These boxes may be filled with
any combination of articles, except
those on the list barred by the
Articles Barred By Post Office.
The following is a list of the
principal classes of articles which
1. All spirituous, vinous, malted,
fermented or other intoxicating li
quors. 2. All kinds of poison and all
articles and compositions containing
3. Explosives of all kinds.
4. Inflammable materials, includ
ing friction matches.
5. Infernal machines and me
chanical, chemical or other devices
of compositions which may ignite or
Note Under this classification
would come cigarette lighters, etc.
C. Liquids or. liquefiable articles,
fragile articles and other admissible
matter when not packed in accord
ance with the requirements of the
Postal Laws and Regulations.
7. All other articles which may
kill, or in any wise hurt, harm, or
injure another, or damage, or de
face, or otherwise injure, the mails
or other property.
Bear These Facts in Mind When
Packing Your Christmas Parcel
Nothing should go in a Christmas
Parcel which will not keep fresh
from the time of packing until
Dried fruits and other food pro
ducts should be packed in small tin
or wooden boxes, one-quarter to one
half pound size.
Hard candy, including chocolate,
would probably be safe in tinfoil or
heavy cardboard, but no soft choco
lates nor any thing that could pos
sibly be crushed should be used, as
the remaining contents of the pack
age might be spoiled thereby.
Several dainties packed in oblong
tin boxes holding each a quarter of
a pound will provide a better va
riety for a packet than a large
quantity of a single confection.
No liquids nor articles packed in
glass should be placed in the pack
age. For wrapping the gifts, use a
khaki-colored handkerahief, twenty
seven inches square.
When the package has been pack
ed, it should be taken, unwrapped
and unsealed, together with the
label and sufficient stamps to the
nearest collection center designated
by the Red Cross. After thepaek
age has passed the inspection of the
Red Cross representatives as to con
tents and weight, and been wrap
ped in stout paper, the Christmas
label bearing the address of the
man for whom it is intended is
placed on it. The person sending
the package, in the presence of the
Red Cross worker, is required to af
fix stamps sufficient to carry it to
Hoboken. N. J. The Postal charges
are to be at the rate of fourth class
or- parcel po?t zone rate. A label
certifying that the inspection has
been completed by the Red Cross is
placed on the package, which is left
in the custody cf the lied Cross un
til delivered to the postal authori
EOOKS FOR SOLDIERS.
The other day we read a young
soldier's first letter to his mother
after reaching Europe. One para
graph said: "We were eighteen days
crossing; a dull trip and nothing to
read. There were some dog-eared
copies of popular magazines that I
had seen before sailing, and some
popular fiction that I had either read
or didn't care for."
The American Library Association,
which has charge cf supplying our
fighting men with reading matter.
reports that the call for bocks of a
educational sort history.
economics, travel. . biography, tech
nical treatises and wcrks is great
er than it can meet at present.
This is a national loss. In train
ing camps here, on shipboard and
over there, the young men have
many an hour to themselves. Wher
ever there, is an- inclination to read
a useful book it ousrht to be met;
and for entertainment there is r.o
better recourse than reading.
The soldiers have been supplied
quite plentifully with the reading
matter that can be got to them in
the easiest way, with no bother and
expense to anybody that is. by
simply dropping a read magazine
into the post-office, to be forwarded
by the Post Office Department. That
is good so far as it goes, but inade- '
quate as a method of disposing of
the whole matter. Of course, the
Library Association does go further
than that, aiming to establish in
camps, on transports and af rest
stations libraries that cover a wide
range. Its means are not adequate.
The question of a bigger appropria
tion for this useful purpose ought to
be taken up. Saturday Evening

In noting what you had to say in

J tion I had received from the District
Draft Board, which I thought v.-a?,
beyond his jurisdiction, and it was
during this rather hinted contro
versy that he asked m? whether I
was born in this country, and why
I was here, to which I replied that
it was perhaps my misfortune. Now
neither the subject of war, nor
America hud been mentioned. And
will say, that in using the temi
