1. There is consld~rable evidence that many officers preparing
messages for disDatch_ through the networks are not
cen÷'v .~" ~ng: to established
policies and directives cc~ice~ing the elimination of all ~tu~necessary
words, puuctuationj and phrases in the tranamission of such messages.
Co~mmndlng Officers ~-ll require every Individual trader their control
assigned to duty involving the p-~eparation or dispatch of messages to
become throughly familiar ~th this publlostlon and the attached list,
" A U T H O R I Z E D A B B B ~ V I AT I O E S , " a n d w i l l i n s u r e t h a t t h e p r o v i s i o n s t h e r e o f
are complled ~th.

2. The followi~ instructions ~dll apply in the prepsmaticn of
all mBssages for transmission by electrical means:
_a. Present load on the networks necessitates reduction of
dispatch of messages via electrical ~e~ns to a ~%ni_~n~m. Messages will
be dispatched via electrical means only ~;hon transmission by other ~ans
would cause delays which ~oul~ seriously hinder operations.
b. M~im~s use will be made of abbreviations as authorized
i n t h e a t t a c h e ~ l i s t ~ " A U T H O R I Z E D A B B E ~ V I ATi 0 N s . "
c . P r e p o s i t i o n s s u c h a s " o f , " " f o r, " " fl ~ m , " " b y, " e t c .
w i l l b e a v o l d e d w h e r e v e r p o s s i b l e , c o n s i s t e n t ~ r i t h c l a r i t y.
_d. Priority for the message ~ll not be designated ~nless
t h e t i m e e l e m e n t m a k e s i t a b s o l u t e l y n e c e s s a r y. T h e i m p o r t a n c e o f
message in itself does not warrant priority designation.
5. Before a message is dispatched it will be carefully edited
to determ/ne if it contains any wor~ or words which could be elimlnate~
without changing the context of the ~ssage. Thss_____ee word_~s will b_~e deleted
__her°re --the ~ is ~ispatched.
4. a. Unless otherwise speeifled, messages will be addressed
to this headquarters as follows:
