Postal receipts for the first quarter of 1951, including stamp sales and post office box rental was $4,035.32 as compared com-pared with $2,979.36 for the same period in 1950 an increase in-crease of $1,056.

Indicative if the fact that business bus-iness at the post office has taken tak-en a sudden upswing since the first of the year is a comparison of the increase in postal receipts for the first quarter of 51 with the increase in receipts during the entire year of 1950 over 1949. Postal receipts in 1950 totaled $14,987, an increase of $1,222 over the 1949 total of $13,765. Thus the increase in receipts re-ceipts for the first quarter of '51 over the same period last year is only $166 short of the increase for the entire year of 1950 over 1949. Money Orders Increase An increase in money order busisess for the first quarter of '51 was also reported. Money orders totaling $66,434.13 were sold during the quarter as compared com-pared with $52,191.36 in money orders for the same period of 1950- The increase of $14,243 for the quarter is about $6000 higher high-er than the entire increase for 1950 over 1949. During 1950 a total of $219,634. 18 in money orders was sold as compared with $211,243.87 for 1949. Mrs. Bill Baker is visting for 10 days with relatives in California.

WELCOME, SAFEWAY The opening of Safeway's half-million-dollar store in Orem next Wednesday, along with the open-house at Park's Super Market to mark an enlargement and modernization mod-ernization program there, may well be the beginning of a new era in this community. It no longer is necessary for Orem's housewives to travel outside Orem to take advantage of the clean, spacious, well-lighted, well-stocked and established food markets which are so rapidly becoming standard for American food buyers. We've had adequate food markets here Park's and Esquire's have been as good as the best but it has taken the Safeway Store to make it official. And it is significant that Safeway people have constructed, not just another fine store, but, the finest grocery plant in the intermountain west. It appears that Safeway and Park's are determined to do what no other retail merchant has been able to do in the past induce Orem's 8300 people to buy at home. What with Utah county's finest food market, Safeway, flanked by an enlarged and modernized Park's Super market on the north, and Esquires (getting ready for an improvement program) on the south, plus well-placed neighborhood grocery stores, Orem may well become, not only the steel center of the west, the fruit center of the state, but also the grocery center of the county. Welcome to Orem, Safeway Stores. And we'll make another prediction: The Safeway Store will do what the disciples of zoning ordinances claimed for zoning establish the principal business center of our community. -I Edith Scovil Alpine Finance Co. manager, points out the tlja ta her window offering loan of $25. to $300. for any worthwhile purpose.
