and Junior Breon operate the addressing machine in Mail Services on the
University Park campus. Campus mass mailing tip: When sending a mailing
to all employees or a large distribution list, it often is more efficient
not to use personalized address labels. Mail Services will deliver the
correct number of copies to each building or campus location. Sorting
and distribution is simplified and mailings get to each employee faster.
Additionally, the time and expense of producing and applying address labels
is eliminated. Distribution of the Intercom is a good example of this
is the story of 7-year-old Eva Schlesinger, saved from the dangers of
