Stocking Fund

Jaycees Distribute 150 Food Baskets

Some 25 Camden Jaycees worked yesterday afternoon and into last night distributing 150 food baskets and toys to Kershaw County’s indigent families.

The Jaycees’ annual Christmas visit to the poor was made possible by the contributions of countians to the Christmas Stocking fund.  As of early this morning donations to the Fund had reached $1,051.48 – enough to do the job. 

“…We would like to express our appreciation to all those who donated to the Fund, and we’d like to say that everyone would have been deeply grateful that they did contribute if they could have been with us when we delivered the baskets.  The unfortunate people were tearfully thankful when we knocked at their doors,” a Jaycees spokesman said…

Santa Letters

Dear Santa,

Sometimes I have been good.  Sometimes I have been bad, but I want you to please bring me a record player, a train, and a “thirsty cry baby” for my sister, Connie.  We will leave some goodies for you.  Merry Christmas, “Lex” Glover

Dear Santa Claus,

I am a little boy 4 years old.  Please bring me a fire truck, an airplane, and if possible a record player.  Also remember my little 3 month old sister, Kimberly. Yours truly, Herbie Frasier

New Postage Rate Slated January 6

The new nickel letter rate recently enacted into law is the same postage rate Americans paid for letters when the United States issued its first postage stamps 115 years ago, Postmaster D. M. McCaskill said yesterday.  The new rate goes into effect on January 6.

Research shows that, in 1847, the Post Office Department issued its first stamps, including a nickel stamp for the basic pre-paid letter rate, Postmaster McCaskill said.

A nickel was a lot harder to come by in those days the Postmaster added.

…At 5 cents, he said, as in 1847 – it will still be one of the greatest bargains in American history…
