Wed.. June 1.1977 GREELEY (Colo.) TRIBUNE Postmasters miffed over scitery release By JEFFREY MILLS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - The Postal Service, which increased salaries for its top officials without issuing a press release, is upsetting postmasters by going public with their pay. "If a postmaster's salary is published, people in the town who make less money are bound to be resentful," a spokesman for postmasters says. The public relations depart' men! of the mail agency, sending out news releases and letters to the editor, is disclosing information about area post offices, Including the pay of the local postmaster. As an example, a letter by Postal Service spokesman D. Jamison Cain, published in the Beckley, W. Va., Post-Herald and Register, informed readers that the Coal City, W. Va., postmaster earns $19,044 in salary and benefits. Frank Miklozek, executive director of the National Association of Postmasters, charged Tuesday the Postal Service policy is designed to create resentment against postmasters. He said the move is part of a cam- paign to eliminate many post' master jobs. But Cain said the public relations effort is an attempt "to show how important the Postal Service is to the local economy." Another Postal Service source expressed surprise that the postmaster association is complaining about public pay disclosure. He said the organization is suing the government over some raises that were withheld. "I would think that they would be glad to have their sal- said. Although the Postal Service's top 18 executives received pay raises last month, no press releases were issued, Cain said, because all 18 are staying in their present jobs. The agency's top executive, Postmaster General Benjamin F. Bailar, now receives $66,000, the same as a Cabinet official. Future executive pay hikes will be made public, Cain said. Miklozek also charged that the Postal Service, in publicizing postmasters' salaries, is "laying the groundwork" for aries made known," the source closing post offices.

"The Kenya government now has the long arm to stamp out poaching," Tourism and Wildlife Minister Mathews Ogutu said Tuesday in announcing the latest move to save the world's last great wildlife herds from extinction. "I am very optimistic." In response to a growing worldwide clamor, the govern-, ment May 19 slapped a total ban on hunting in the East African country and Ogutu told reporters, "there is no going back on" that decision. The next step to save the herds -- which experts said could be wiped out within a decade at the present rate of decimation -- was to eliminate the poachers. With the help of the World Bank, Kenya will shortly spend $3 million to expand its current single anti-poaching unit, buy spotter helicopters and trucks to fight the poachers, Ogutu said. But some of the 100 professional hunters operating in Kenya and others in conservationist circles have criticized the measure as wrong, too little and too late. Hunting officials Tuesday revealed Ogutu had turned down an offer by the professionals to help anti-poaching units from their own funds. They also argued the professionals in the field helped police bring to poachers to justice and said their own kills were small and 'controlled in comparison with the illegal slaughters. Ogutu said banning professionals would make, easier for the authorities spot, arrest and prosecute poachers. He also said some hunters were guilty of poaching. However, the minister could give no accurate accounting of how devastating the poaching activities were in relation to previously legal hunting.. Some 0,000 animals were shot by licensed hunters last year, but Ogutu said he had no idea how many were killed by poachers.

LOS ANGELES (AP) -"Charlie's Angels" begins production Wednesday for its' second season, but Farrah Fawcett-Majors won't be in the episode.

"He still hasn't made up his mind whether to accept the Columbia offer," the aide said Tuesday. A spokesman at the university said the offer of an endowed chair in political science was still open to Kissinger, and added, "The next piece of news on tliis is expected from Kissinger's office." The New York Times said in its Tuesday editions that Kissinger might turn the offer down out of sensitivity to criticism of the offer and because other commitments in Washington would make the position inconvenient.
