The new uniform, just made official by the postal department, is for window clerks only and only for those window clerks who work at least four hours regularly per day.
Other clerks, even though they may work more than 20 hours a week, officials said, cannot at this date wear the uniforms which are furnished by the postal department.
However, in the near future, such regulations are expected to be liberalized and the day may soon be at hand when every clerk is tastefully attired in blue, maroon and white.
Comments recorded by clerks in Oneonta wearing the new garb were all happily favorable. Cries of “Hey! That looks nice …” and “Say, you look pretty sharp there, boy” were common according to post office spokesmen.
