Did you know... that there was a program during World War I to recycle movie magazines to "our boys" overseas?

We have been auctioning a great collection of movie magazines from the 1910s and 1920s, and we noticed something very cool about several of the ones from 1918 (starting a few months after the U.S. entered World Was I). On those magazines (several of the most popular titles of that time), there is a cool notice in a tiny rectangle on the front cover that says (the wording, size, and placement varies slightly from magazine to magazine):

"Notice to Reader: When you finish reading this magazine, place a one cent stamp on this notice, hand same to any postal employee and it will be placed in the hands of our soldiers or sailors at the front.  NO WRAPPING - NO ADDRESS.  A.S. Burleson, Postmaster General." 

What a great program this was that they ran back during World War I. I bet it made the lives of lonely servicemen overseas far nicer. And I bet you were thinking that "recycling" did not start until the 1960s!
