Theodore R. Racoosin, auditor of the Judea Industrial Corp., returned yesterday on the steamer Olympic after a stay of seven weeks in Palestine. Mr. Racoosin, who went to Palestine in the interests of the Judea Industrial Corporation, found the Judea Insurance Company and the Palestine Near East Exhibition and Fairs Company, subsidiaries of the Judea Industrial Corporation, in a healthy condition. “The public in general regard them as necessary and fixed institutions in Palestine,” he stated.
POSTMASTER URGES EARLY MAILING OF ROSH HASHANAH CARDS
The purpose of this letter is to enlist your aid in the campaign which the postoffice is making to give publicity to the necessity on the part of the public to mail Jewish New Year Cards early. This campaign is being carried on among the Jewish public by enlisting the aid of organizations, synagogues, stores in which greeting cards are sold and in other ways.
As you no doubt are aware a considerable number of the employees of the Postal Service are of the Jewish faith. Many of these employees desire to be relieved from duty on the Jewish Holidays and because of that fact it is essential that the New Year Greeting Cards be mailed so as to ensure delivery before the beginning of the Jewish Holidays. In this manner it will be possible to cooperate to the utmost extent in excusing such employees from duty. The necessity for early mailing is obvious since if many of the employees are to be relieved from duty it is essential that as much mail as possible be handled in advance of the holidays.
I am enclosing herewith a copy of the circular which is being distributed for the purpose of aiding in this campaign and I would request that you give the matter as much publicity as possible.
The points to be emphasized are:
1. The mailing of New Year Greeting Cards not later than September 6.
2. The correct addressing of all mail matter.
3. The prepayment of proper postage.
Your kind assistance in giving publicity to these important points will be very helpful and deeply appreciated.
