Minis-Press Password InD.C. Is Temporize By CLAYTON FRITCHEY (C) 1969, Newsclay, Inc. WASHINGTON--Back in January, Dr. Arthur B u r n s, the high-ranking White House adviser, said that by March the Nixon Administration would be ready to lay its major programs before Congress and the public. In March, the President said that by the middle of April "I will. . .state a general domestic program. By that time the program w i l l be at the point t h a t f think it should be completely .summarized and set forth." So now it is mid-April, Congress has gone oil' for its Easter recess, and almost nothing is before it. Even House Speaker John McCormack, who has been cooperative with the President, admits h i s concern. H u b e r t Humphrey, who has also been indulgent, now says. "Time is running and running fast. The issues are there and they must be met. Thus far the h a l l m a r k of the new Administration lias been caution. But after the Easter vacation, it wil become time to fish or cut bait." The President's performance (or lack of it) has its defenders. Sen. Everett Dirkscn. the Minority Leader, has praised ii as "the Responsible Society." Actually, it is not necessary to invent a descri|jtioii. because i.a- t i n had a word for it, and the word, in modern usage, is temporize. Webster's International defines temporize as meaning: "Bow to practical necessities; to make terms or work out a compromise with someone or between parties: to d r a w out. discussions or negotiations so as to gain time put olf decisive action." It w i l l he hard to f i n d a more precise d e f i n i t i o n of the last 80 days in W a s h i n g t o n , whether it is the federal budget and tax reform on the one hand, or Vietnam, missiles, and disarmament talks on the other. The A d m i n i s t r a t i o n has also temporized on foreign aid. Peru, dralt reform, the Otcpka case, and the poverty and model cities programs. In addition it has hedged, stalled, or compromised on the Dctense budget, e-'ee-loral enl- lege reform, school desegrega- t i o n guidelines, college demonstrators and numerous controversial appointments. This is not necessarily all had. Several of Nixon's s e c o n d thoughts have been b e l t e r t h a n Ins lirst ones, notably in modi l y i n g his campaign positions on Vietnam and tax reductions. There is much to be said for tempori/.ing on occasion, as Eisenhower proved when he backed off from a war in Indo- C Ii i n a a f t e r first going along w i t h h i s h a w k i s h advisers. The late President, however, also knew t h e r e were t i m e s w h e n not to temporize, lie inherited it war in Korea just as Nixon has in V i e t n a m , but lie hist no t i m e in pressin;: for peace. It took him only six months to get it. In V i e t n a m no end is in sight. Like N i x o n . Eisenhower was under pressure from the m i l i - tary to spend billions on an a n t i - b a l l i s t i c missile s \ e m . A g a i n he did not temporize, l i e w . i s against the missile defense and minced no words in saying n. Admittedly these f i r m decisions were the exception r a t h e r t h a n the rule of his A d m i n i s t r a t i o n , for on t h e whole the E i s e n h o w e r years w e r e negative ones. Considering the p o p u l a r sin- cess of Eisohower's general blandnos.v it is u n d e r s t a n d a b l e t h a t X'ixon might w a n t to e m u l u t e it. but it is d o u b t f u l if anv body but t h e 0 e n e r a 1 could m a k e it a p o l i t i c a l asset. Eis- n bower came t o office as a he- rnic. d y n a m i e general, l i e d i d n ' t have to be p o s i t i v e to prove himself. The public was readv to give him the b e n e f i t of t h e doubt and the p o l i t i c i a n s were afraid to a t t a c k h i m .

"There is no murtal thins faster than these messengers." -- Herodotus «n the Persian postal system, 500 B.C. Chronic crisis is the word for the U.S. postal system. The Post Office will save $1 million, it estimates, by dropping same- day service in big cities. That amounts to li.OOO of the annual $8 billion budget of the Department. The mail system could break down at any time. Shortly after taking over his new job. Postmaster G e n e r a l Winlon M. Blounl d e c l a r e d i n nn i n I ii r v i c w: "I am told by p e o p l e in the department that the sort of breakdown that happened in Chicago two or three years ago could happen today in any one of a do/en places across the country --and it could happen in a lot of places at the same time." Blounl observed at a Feb. 25 press conference that there are not going to be any overnight improvements in the mail system. But. lie said. "If we don't start making these changes we are talking about, this system is going to collapse." The U.S. Post Office handles well over one-half the world's mail -- more than 82 billion pieces last year. Before Ions. Blount says, we'll be up to 100 billion pieces. The Post Office is the government organism with a built- in deficit, in the Johnson administration budget for the fiscal year 1970 -- beginning July 1--'postal e x p e n d i t u r e s were e s t i m a t e d at $7.7.') billion of w h i c h only SB.5 billion would be covered by revenues under existing postal rales. The budget proposed cutting out the 10 cent air mail rate -- inasmuch as most first- class mail is carried by air anyway. Instead, the f i r s t - c l a s s rate would be raised to 7 cents from the present (i cents.

Among tlu various classes of mail, first class and air mail, whicli together account for almost lit) per cent of all mail by volume, earn a small profit for the Post Office. The Post Office Deparrment year alter year faces the same familiar problems: sharply rising costs, slowly rising revenue, mounting mail volume, and sometimes erratic service. Bureaucracy is the prime evil, made more deadly by political manipulation. President Nixon in a special message of Feb. 23 promised to remove "the last vestiges of political patronage" from the Post Office Department. Both the President and Blount have said they are reviewing proposals for reforming the Department. Among these was the recommendation of the Presidential Commission on Postal Organization last July 16. The so-called Kappol Commission urged creation of a government -owned corporation to operate the postal service as a self- supporting business, free from politics. House and Senate bills would translate the Kappel report into law. Another bill, sponsored by Chairman Thadclens J. Du- Is'ki. U.-N.Y., of the H o u s e Post Office and Civil Service Commiltce. would overhaul the structure of the Post Office while keeping it as an executive department, and continuing the Postmaster General as a member of the cabinet. Essentially, the Department, would set its own budget and support itself from its own revenues. The powerful postal unions oppose the corporation plan, and tend to support the Dulski measure One thine seems to bo clear: a wholesale change must be made if ll-c postal system _is not to suffocate in a sea of mail.
