Notes on Non-Zero Number in First Digit of 6-Digit SAME Number
```                       * RE: column 3

If subdivisions are employed, there may be from 2 to 9 of them.

In the case of the maximum of nine subdivisions, the following assignments
would be used in the first digit:

1 = Northwest 1/9
2 = North Central 1/9
3 = Northeast 1/9
4 = West Central 1/9
5 = Central 1/9
6 = East Central 1/9
7 = Southwest 1/9
8 = South Central 1/9
9 = Southeast 1/9

For less than 9 subdivisions, the following numbering convention is
normally used depending on the desired size and/or orientation of the area
such as from Northwest to Southeast, North to South, West to East, or
Northeast to Southwest:

1 = Northwest 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 as appropriate
2 = North 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 as appropriate
3 = Northeast 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 as appropriate
4 = West 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 as appropriate
5 = Central 1/3 (or as appropriate)
6 = East 1/3 or 1/2, or 2/3 as appropriate
7 = Southwest 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 as appropriate
8 = South 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 as appropriate
9 = Southeast 1/3, 1/2, or 2/3 as appropriate
