Congressman Rclwrt McClory an¬ nounced recemly that he -has been advised by Postmaster General Winton M. Blount of a major new postal service prograni that will ex¬ pand home deliveries in Lake and McHenry counties. This is part of an over^l program to benefit an additional four millioa Americans — principally in small communities — ior the first time. Under the program, persons liv¬ ing nwre than a quarter mile, but less than half a milj from 18,700 post offices that do not have city delivery are now eligiblb to receive the delivery at home. Previously, they have been compelled to go to the post office for their mail. Since they live less than half a mile away from a post office, they have not been eligible to receive rural delivery service prior to Mr. Blount's new order, the Congress¬ man explained. And because they live near a post OfHce that does not have dty delivery they have missed out there, too. Congressman McClory said he had been atdvised tnat the Post¬ master General is issuing instruc¬ tions in the Postal Bulletin making the service available to tbe 1.2 mil¬ lion families living tn the eligible are^^ — 4 millioa iiidlvidiudt. Tte «itlr raqoheawMt io obtain the service Is that it must be re¬ quest of the postnuixer, and a majority of those livhg in the area must desire the service. The expansion will be achieved by such steps as extending shorter rural routes and addmg delivery stops to some rural rentes. In other instances, "star" or contract routes may be used to provide the snrice; in some locati<x)s it may be neces¬ sary to establish new nu al routes, the Postmaster General advised the Congressman. "Mr. Blount's order provides for one of the most significant ad¬ vances In service in many years," the Congressman commented, "I am particularly pleased that the order will beneftt communities in Lake and McHenry Counties.** The following areas will be made eligible for this service expansion under the order Inglcslde, I^and Lake, Lake Vil¬ la, Prairie View, RnsseD and Wads worth in Lake County; and Hebnm, Huntley, Richmond, Riiigvrood, Spring Grove, Union and Wonder Lake in McHemy Counter.
