Postoffice ‘at Home’ Today in Handsome New Quarters

 An entrance free from mud, a large new room with windows extending the entire length of the room, a brand-new writing desk similar to the ones in the regular “town postoffice,” and a newly-planned counter over which to toss the little canvas-encased box containing the laundry to be sent home — these are but a few of the features of the new location of the University postoffice, situated in the lower level of the completed power plant, and open today for the first time to students to receive and send mail.


Last night, with the removal of the mail cases to the new headquarters, the final moving was completed.


Mr. Fisher, superintendent of buildings and grounds, was well pleased with the rooms. He declared that while they would not be fully settled for a day or two, yet they would be “at home” in their new location today. The entrance opens on University street.


A glass partition will extend from the counter to the ceiling, but this has not been put up yet. The writing desk for students is an addition that was considered necessary.


The old headquarters of the post-office will be utilized as a room in which employees may eat their lunch, it will be a tool house, and will house the quarters for the Financial Aid bureau.


The change will not affect the number of employees this department, for no additions will be made.
