Postal Service: a No-Win Situation WASHINGTON - (LENS) — The Postal Service is caught. If it tries to save money by cutting back on uneconomical parts of its service, then it will not get the increased federal subsidy desperately needed to meet its $3 billion deficit. Both chambers of Congress are considering legislation which Would give the service $4.5 billion over the next three years, a 100 per cent increase in its subsidy, but only if the post office remains its outmoded, inefficient self. Although the service became an independent corporation in 1970 with instructions to be self-supporting by 1984, Congress retained for itself the role of policy-maker. And it has continued to force the corporation to be a public service first and a business enterprise second, even though the telephone, telex, radio and television between them now serve many of America's communication needs. Even if the post office could be sure of getting the increased subsidies, which it cannot given President Ford's opposition, the subsidy would still not be sufficient.

We recommend it. Times Herald, Carroll, la. jr Wednesday, April 2B, 1976 3 Postmaster General, has continued to chip away at the various postal services to reduce his corporation's deficit. As a result he has angered both Congress and the postal unions. Until recently, the three main postal unions worked closely with the postmaster general. They agreed to a moderate pay settlement last year and have been striving to help Bailar win the sympathy of Congress. The unions even accepted a hiring freeze and the closing of some rural post offices. But that was before Mr. Bailar's talk to the Economic Club of Detroit last month when he proposed to cut delivery days from six to five a week and replace door-to-door delivery with curbside or cluster mail boxes. Also last month Bailar reduced deliveries in the business districts of major cities; New York went down from three to two deliveries a day and nine other eastern cities from two to one. These major cutbacks directly threatened jobs and brought the unions into sharp collision with the postmaster. To prove their accusations that the service was being mismanaged they invited Rep. Charles Wilson (D-Calif.) chairman of the postal facilities subcommittee, to visit Detroit. There he was shown Astrology thousands of damaged parcels, ruined by the new automatic sorting machines that have been installed in 21 centers across the country at a cost of $1 billion to compete with the independently run and highly successful United Parcel Service. In Chicago 3.7 million packages have been ripped open by them. The Postal Service admits to teething-troubles with the machinery and is now asking its customers to use stronger packaging and tape instead of staples. But the Postal Service's troubles are larger than just managerial inefficiencies, and cannot be solved by nibbling away at various postal services, particularly when 86 per cent of the corporation's budget goes on salaries. Higher prices for stamps to offset the increasing deficits only result in a drop in mail volume, with some businesses and individuals now delivering their mail themselves to escape the postal expense. Third parties are still banned by law from delivering letters. But this could change if Sen. James Buckley (R-N.Y.)hashisway. He has introduced a bill into the Senate which would end the Postal Service's \ monopoly. \ It is a measure which .already has considerable support from President Ford, but private delivery services would be interested only in the more profitable sections of the mail service.
