By ALFRED FRIENDLY The Washington Post LONDON - Britain's "two- ficr" ninil system, providing faster delivery of letters carrying an extra penny slamp, should be adopted in the United Stales, American Postmaster General Winlon I. Blount said Saturday. In an interview, Blount said Ihc system could cut the mail congestion during each days I wo peak periods by as much as SO per cent, with consequent cost, .savings and increased efficiency. In Britain, domestic first class nail cosls four pennies--cxacl- y equal to four cents--an ounce. A Idler carrying an extra penny slamp gels priority sorting and deliveryr. Blount explained f l i n t American big city post ofifces have 0 be staffed up lo handle peak 'lows from !) In 12 p.m.--when collections come in from the .:ily mail boxes--and from 3 to 1 a.m.--when mail brought by ruck, train and plane from elsewhere in the country ordi- larily comes in largest volume to Ihe post offices. The consequence is (hat dur- ng other periods in the 24 lours, there is excess handling capacity in the postal stations, 'f tlicre were a preferential rate; the letters wilh the prior- ty stamp would be handled First and, if there was clogging luring (he peak period, the other mail would be laid over o be handled some hours later. A more economical staffing pat- ern could thus be obtained. Blount was in London as a Sliest of the British postal sys- cm lo witness its changeover rom a cabinet department to a government corporation. His own legislative objective is to shift the American Post Office )epartmcnt lo a government- iwncd but privately financed and self-supporting corporation. The clear superiority of British mail deliveries over the American--there are four deliveries a day in London, for axam- ple, and few tellers terry more than 'IA hours between sender and receiver--datives from Ihe lighter geography of the United Kingdom and the relatively large number of employes, Blount said. lie noted that although a letter here costs four cents compared to the six-cent rale in the United Stales, British postal em- ployes are paid only one-third of their American counterparts. And since labor costs are 80 per ccnl of the total, here as in the United Slates, Blount calculated it would cost 12 cents for an American letter if the same proportionate number of workers were hired in ; America as in Britain.
