DENVER POST OFFICE FLOODED WITH CHAIN LETTERS
Postmaster Stevic at Denver, Colorado has had to put on over a hundred
substitute postal clerks to handle the extra mail in the office which has
reached Holiday size, because of a new "chain letter" drive in the city.
Miss Melvina Starns is shown above with some of the chain letters which
have clogged the office.
