Voters of Washington have now received their Voters Pamphlet in the mail with the exception of newly registered voters who are being sent pamphlets as soon as the registration records are re- ceived from local election officers, Secretary of State Victor A. Meyers said this week. The booklet, authorized by the constitution as a means of in- forming the electorate about pend- ing measures oft the ballot, has been completely revamped and modernized to make it as read- able as possible. In addition to the complete text of the one Constitutional Amend- Monroe Women Go To Past Matron's Meet Fri. In Granite Falls Last Friday ,afternoon several nlembers of Monroe Past Matron's Club of the Order of the Eastern Star attended the Snohomish Coun- ty Past Matron's Club meeting in Granite Falls. Past matrons of Bethel Chhpter were hosts for he luncheon-business-social meeting. Severdc-nine women registered with members coming from every Eastern Star chapter in the corm- with mmbers coming from every Eastern Star chapter in the cuno- ty. Local members attending were Mrs Jim Hart, Mrs Percy Dyer, Mrs. Mabel Roben, Mrs. Maude W3fite, Mrs. Florence Streeter and Mrs. Streeter's guest, Mrs. Elea- nor Mulder. q ment .and five Initiative Measures which will appear on the ballot, this year's pamphlet contains Con- gressional and Legislative Dis- tricts maps, explanatory comment on each measure by the Attorney General, arguments for and a- gainst each measure and an Ab- sentee Ballot application. "A great deal of the credit for this newly-designed pamphlet must go to the League of Women Vot- ers," Meyers pointed out. "It was through their efforts that House Bill No. 599 was passed in the last session of the legislature giv- Jng my office the power to com- pletely revamp this booklet in the interests of readability. For that reason I dedicated the first vol- ume t.o that organization." Meyers also pointed out that his office had used every method to try to keep duplication of mail- ing to a minimum. "This is a difficult problem he- cause the Constitution requires that I,mail each voter a pam- phlet. That means that families with more than one voter will re- ceive multiple pamphlets in some cases. Then too I must use ad- dresses from our permanent re- , gistratiun records. Many voters fail to inform their registration officers when they move and pam- phlet.s are mailed to the old ad- dresses .adding to the confusion," Meyers said. A supply of the pamphlets has been sent to each city clerk, coun- ty auditor and libraries so that any discussion groups or interest- ed parties may obtain copies.

Ko Tan Da Camp Fire Girls Meet Wednesday by Sally Jo Nasman A trip to town for ice cream cones and watching the boys play football highlighted the meeting of Ko Tan Da Camp Fire girls last Wednesday Mrs. Thomas Gable is leader.

Card of thanks WITH DEEPEST GRATITUDE we extend this word of thanks to those who seal the beautiful flow- ers and comforting cards, the con- tributions in memory of our loved one to the Cancer Fund, to the neighbors ,mad friends who extend- ed their kindnesses, the Monroe General hospital staff, to the min- ister for his cornfrting words, for the beautiful music, to the Ameri- can Legion for their impressive miliary services; the pallbearers, and to the WHHI club who helped in so many ways throughout the long illness of our loved one. Mrs. William Broughton Mr. and Mrs. W: L. Heald and f,nily Sfc and Mrs. Vance King and family Mrs. Ella Adams Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Brough- ton ,and family Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Brough- on and family Mr. and Mrs. I.ter Brough- ton and family Mr. and Mrs. Mervin Brough- ton .and family Mrs. Mabel Shields and family Mrs. Pearl Mayer's and family Paid adv. contributed ,to a new national rec- ord of nearly 64 billion pieces of mail, including a billion pieces of parcel post, during fiscal year 1960 ending last June 30, Postmaster Dan Connelly said. Based on advance information from the Annual Report of the De- partment, which has been made available to Postmaster Connelly, it was revealed that the present day figures represent an increase of 25 per cent over the 1953 volume which totaled 50.9 billion pieces. This increase, along with a sharp discontinuance of mail-carrying trains in recent years, has helpel foster a complete revolution in postal transportation including far more extensive use of highway ve- hicles, he said. Locally, th'e trans- portation pat.tern for the Skykomish Valle3r area has changed in the fol- ,lowing manner: two contract truck routes now serve this area. One makes a round trip from Everett to Skykomish, the othder a round trip Everett to Wenatchee. Both routes are on, a daily basis with exception of Sundays. Also the Town of Monroe is scheduled to have house 'to house mail delivery soon. Today, 85 per cerlt of the vast postal vehicle fleet, operating under a' modernization and improvement program initiated in 1954, is com- posed 0 maneuverable vehicles. This con- version, he noted, has meant the "retirement" of worn out units--, many in use for ten years or more --which in turn, has greatly re- duced maintenance costs for the postal service. Here in Washington it is esti- mated that the total number of mo- tor vehicle units regularly in oper- ation is approximately 744 com- pared with 339 back in 1953. Post- master Connelly also pointed out that there have been ]iterally scores of organizational and oper- ational changes during this seven- year improvement program and that each one of them is directed ,toward the more efficient and more economical operation of the Post Office Department.
