TUESDAY, MAY 23, 1050 ILYTHEVrLM! £ARK.) COURIER NEW* The Nation Today: One-A-Day Deliveries— Postal Delivery Cut Won't Dry'Red Ink' By JAMES MAKLOW WASHINGTON, May 23. (AP) — Some Congressmen still splutter over the new jxxst office rule cutting down mall service. But they have done nothing effective to stop 'taChances are they won't, ^rhis Is a fill-in for anyone lost in the cries of pain and purple protests, Tliis year Jesse M. Donaldson, postmaster general, told the| House Appropriations Committee how much money the P.O. needed. The committee said lie could do with less. But it gave him free art- vice. Economize, it said, How? By cutting down the number of daily deliveries to home in cities and residential areas. (It's the committee's job to tell the full House, which has final say, how much the P.O. needs. Donaldson a>-ked $2,255,607,000 for another year. The committee cut this $28,101,000 to $2207.500.000 Rod Ink Still Looms (Even what Donaldson asked wouldn't cover P.O. expenses. It inns in the red every year. That's taken for granted. Every year it's Just a question of how much il will run in the red.) So Donaldson took the committee's advice. j April 18 he issued an order. It j w?s to start immediately, be in full force by June 30. It affects city home-dwellers most. 'Die purpose of the order: to save on manpower, thus save on pay. This is about what the order amounted to: Deliveries [o city homes and rcs- ll areas will be reduced from • three to one a day: post of- wlll close earlier: and the niclit clerks won't bother speeding up 3rd cl*>ss mail. .Third Class Mall (Third class includes circulars and publicity letters. They need less speed than the other three classes: first, regular maii; second, newspapers and magazines; fourth, parcel post. (The new order won't change the present one-a-day delivery to farm homes.) The P.O. has about 500.0M em- ployes, divided this way: l! About 350,000 full-time, regular., employes. They've passed Civil Service examinations. The remain- in'! 150,000 include: 2. Classified employes. That is, those who work part-time, have passed their exams, are awaiting regular P.O. Jobs. :C-Substitutes: ' ttiose who work part-time as needed but have not passed an exam to become regulars. • ;;' .^- RtsldrBlial: Areas- .. . t . 'officials say the'order ~ will groups No. 2 and 3 hut not No. 1. But what will this do to the letter carrier who, if you live hi a residential area, used to deliver ynur mail twice a day? Donaldson says H will mean less walking for him; explaining: The average city mail carrier, walking his route twice a day, covered nine miles. Now, walking only one route a day, although It will be longer, he'll walk 20 to 33 per cent, less a day. Won't he have to carry more mail on this one trip? Not at any one time, says Donaldson, because: under standing rules, unchanged, no carrier lias to tote more than 35 pounds at any one time. If the mail for his route runs over that, a truck will deposit it In a box where he can pick it up on his route, but never more than 35 pounds of it at a lime. Donaldson says 15 to 80 per cent of the mail delivered to homes delivered on the first trip anyway. So, he argues, no great volume of mull to homes is delayed by the new one-a-day delivery. I>oluTly Protests One of the biggest protests against all this came from William c. Doheriy, president of the National Association of Letter Carriers. Saiil Doherty: the one-a-day trip will become "inhumane" and "to keep a IeU«r carrier on his route six hours or more without an opportunity to eat or relax even slightly . . . belongs to the dark ages." Admltlng his order hus drawn many complaints, Donaldson says mast of them originated with Doherty's union. The postmaster says: Every mail man gets 30 minutes for lunch nnd can take three time.s as much. If necessary. The Senate has been making hreatening noises about, ordering Donaldson to cut out Ills new or- Mr. Tronll C. W. Troutt, of Lebanon, Tcnn.. well-knoMl mannger of square dances and operator of several trucKs, now Joins in a few steps of the dancing, much to the amazement of friends who know how severe aches and pains of neuritis have made him almost an invalid for some time. This blessed relief came to Mr. Trontt as HADACOL. helped over§ e his deficiencies of Vitamins B2, Niacln and Iron. This re- came to him after these horrible pains had haunted him, making it possible for him to carry on his business activities only through sheer determination. He didn't let aches and pains kill his spirits, however. Then, one of the musicians at his square dances brought him : large economy-size bottle of HAD A COL. Gave Him HADACOL "I am tired of seeing you suffer with these aches and pains," said the musician. "I bought you this big bottle myself because" I want to see you start getting well." Here Is Mr. Troutt's own story. "I have suffered with aches and pains of neuritis for some time I have tried dozens of preparations but have had little relief. My greatest pains have been in my knees and ankles and recently there have been pains in my wrists. One of the greatest horrors was to be «:iablc lo sleep at night. Since tak- tJ)j*HADACOL I have been able to s'Sap and it is wonderful to get rid of those terrible .pains in the knees, ankles and wrists. I have found in HADACOL the only relief that has come after years of search." You'll Feel Great . . . . . . with the first few bottles you take, or yonr money back. There Is only one HADACOL and It Is sold on a strict money-back guarantee. So give this remarkable HADACOL medicine a chance to help you if you siiffer from deficiencies of Vitamins Bl, B2, Niacln and Iron. Remember that HADACOL Is amazingly different and amazingly effective because it treats the real cause of such troubles. Make lip your mind lo take HADACOL regularly. Refuse rabititutes.
