Three aims under discussion by directors, and due for detailed introduction at a general meeting soon are, 1- A new program of activities to offer more benefits to members. 2 - Increased participation by members for their own good and for the indirect benefit of the whole town. 3- A budget adequate to provide cash and tools to do a better job. Presentation of ideas for the rejuvination of the Chamber of Commerce will put heavy stress on the self-help theme. To build better business and prosperity, organization members and boosters will preach that initiative and work must be volunteered from within the group, _and more can be accomplished by teamwork and cooperation than by efforts from individuals by themselves. A preview of discussion topics that will be offered at the general meetings came out of a meeting Monday morning when C. of C. President Dick Groves and Directors Howard Everts and Ben Burdo held informal meeting. Directors have made an agreement with Ken Barnes, former owner of Town and Country Lounge here, to become manager of the business group's activities.

Put ZIP In Mail Service Longer post office window hours, expanded delivery services and large- scale extension of the ZIP coded parcel post speedup are planned for Christmas, Postmaster General John A. Gronouski has advised the local postmaster, Larry Jackson. Mr. Gronouski outlined to the Clare postal head, three major new steps he has taken "for the best Christmas mail service the Postal Service has ever -had:" 1. Expanded post office window hours Dec. 5 to 26 as deemed necessary by the local postmaster. 2. A six-day week Dec. 7-31 for parcel post deliveries, instead of a five- day week. 3. Completion by Nov. 1 of Phase III of ZIP Code parcel handling at about 130 more "sectional center" post offices (strategically-located mail massing points,) providing faster delivery up to 24 hours or more for parcels with ZIP Code. The Postmaster General said the Christmas plans are part of a nationwide program to bring postmasters into more responsible positions in postal management as "real partners in providing better mail service at all levels."
