Mail Snafu Delays Mailing of JTA News

Download PDF for this date

Hundreds-of phone calls were received at the world headquarters of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency complaining about the delay and non-receipt of the JTA daily news reports caused by the breakdown of equipment at the New York Post Office since early last week.

Newspaper clients and individual subscribers said that failure to receive the reports or receiving them late deprived them of the indispensable daily information which the JTA provides about the Jewish communities throughout the world, information not available from any other source. The New York Postmaster stated last Friday that the problem is now under control and that mail service should be restored to normal by today.
