I also plan to do some traveling." The opening as acting postmaster here in Perkins came by appointment from President Dwight D. Eisen- hower, Jan. 24, 1958. After 15 years service here, Mrs. Albright transferred to Tulsa in 1972 where she remained until her retirement August 31, 1977. The choice to transfer was between a part time job here or full time in Tulsa. "It was quite an experience," the former postal clerk said. There were many zones to learn for city carriers as well as the primary distribution scheme for the city of Tulsa. There were 20 carriers in one zone. The opportunity to learn was rewarding, she added. To pass the exam required 95% accuracy. Mrs. Albright said this was later reduced from the five minute test she took to eight minutes in which to complete the test. The reason was the high percentage who did not complete the test in the shorter period failing to meet the required results. Mrs. Albright's final job in Tulsa was to distribute mail for the state of Oklahoma into sectional center zones. The first job Mrs. Albright held here in Perkins as acting postmaster lasted one year and 9 months. Per- manent jobs were reserved for veterans such as Buzz Fiole who replaced the Perkins woman.

She married Edwin Albright in 1926 and she remained in the Perkins vicinity until after his death in 1966.
