I have a slogan cancel from Montpelier, VT that I can't completely read. I assume it was part of a national program:

PART OF ???? / FOR S???? / ARMY DAY

I think the S???? may be SALVATION

Moe Luff's "United States Postal Slogan Cancel Catalog" lists slogan 4750 used in 52 cities in 1949 as:
PART OF THE TEAM FOR SECURITY ARMY DAY, APRIL 6

and the only example I seem to have of it, from a Universal machine, although Luff also lists it used from the International machines.

I found an example of this slogan cancel in a stamp accumulation. The original collector had an envelope containing multiples of this stamp.

There are at least 20 more envelopes full of stamps I haven't even looked at. I figure the contents of these envelopes are what most collectors would call kiloware.

I have a slogan cancel (I'll post a picture shortly) the slogan is "Erase T.B. X-Ray your chest precaution is best". IT's from South Norwalk, Conn. in 1951. I cannot find anything about this anywhere. Does anyone have any ideas?

The 1950s were a time of many health-related slogan cancels. Moe Luff's "United States Postal Slogan Cancel Catalog" Revised Ed 1975, has the following listing on page 42:



Here is a collector sent-for example from Norwalk:


So despite being used at only Norwalk/South Norwalk, it would be common due to its span of use throughout the 1950s and collector mail on the moderately high-speed International and Universal canceling machines of that era.
