OF LONG TIME SERVICE
One of the pleasing features of
Wednesday's Legion .convention was
the publio presentation from the com
munity, at large of. wrist watches to
Raymond J. Larson and C. A. Mar
shall. Legionnaires and past com
manders of the local post, for their
long and untiring labor in Legion
sponsored boys work.
The plan to thus show the pub
lic's appreciation to these men was
originated by W. A. Robertson, to
whom was accorded the privilege of
making the presentation speech. Mr.
Robertson, the father of boys who
have been in both the Boy Scouts and
the Junior Drum corps, realized the
many hours of time these two men
have devoted to their respective
tasks, Ray as Scoutmaster for more
than ten years, and "June" as drum
corps director during the past five
Both expressed their appreciation
following the presentation and have
asked that we convey their thanks to
the many contributors to the fund
who are not Legionnaires and could
not be present at the banquet, but
who felt the impulse to see that their
respective services no longer go un
recognized and unrewarded.

PARCEL POST DELIVERY ASSURED
Postmaster Raymond J. Larson has
been notified by the postal depart
ment that parcel post delivery was
to be established in the city of Platts
This will be a very much appre
elated service to the patrons of the
postoffice and has been under con
sideration for some time. A recent
Inspection of the situation here by
the postal authorities showed that
the delivery system was needed in
handling the business of the office
This installation will mean that
there will be an additional man
placed on the staff at the postoffice
and who will serve as the driver of
the car or truck and attend to the
delivery of the packages. The deliv
ery will probably mean from two to
three hours per day for the carrier
in getting over the city to serve the
patrons who are on the city delivery
