Mail Service (1957) 

Rural residents served by the Neillsville post office were finding their mail in the box nearly two hours earlier, starting Monday. 

The change in schedule results from a faster "get-away" from the post office by rural carriers, who now leave at 9 o’clock.  They formerly waited for the star route in the morning, and that got them out on the routes at 10:50. 

However, this was changed on recommendation of a post office department committee which has been set up to study delays of mail delivery and eliminates them, according to Acting Postmaster Romuald Schmidt. 

The Committee found that the amount of mail coming in on the morning star route was not of sufficient volume to warrant holding deliveries for it.
