Itx Logansport, Indiana, Pharos-Tribune New Postal Cut Warning Is Sounded Arthur Summerfield Declares That New Service Curtailment Likely Unless Congress Provides Additional Funds WASHINGTON (UP)—Postmaster General Arthur E. Summerfield confronted Congress today with new threats of a massive shutdown of postal services unless it meets his demands for more funds. • Summerfield said that if Congress does not provide 140 million dollars in additional funds "we'll probably have to close hundreds if not thousands of small post offices throughout the country" as well as cutback other mail services. The Senate and House knocked 58 million dollars out of the Post Office Department's budget for next fiscal year to show they "meant business" in the economy drive. But the postal chief said that far from accepting such a cut, his department will need 140 million dollars more just to maintain present services. Summerfield said Sunday on a television program that he would request the sum "in a few days." He warned at the time the cuts wore made that he would have to curtail postal services July 1 unless the reductions were restored and another 70 million to 30 million dollars appropriated. Even if Congress restored the 56 million dollars, he said Sunday, it "will not be enough for us to maintain present mail service in 1958." Summerfield also said if the funds are not forthcoming, "it will probably mean the elimination of all Saturday deliveres completely." He blame dthe need for extra appropriation on the growth of the nation's economy and increases in the use of mail. Winomac Daily vacation Bible School will be held in Winamac June 3 to 14.

Theodore Francis Green, still spry at 89-plus, becomes the oldest man ever to serve in Congress this week To settle disagreements over the exact date he has chosen Thursday, May 30, as the day his title becomes clear and. unassailahle.. "The experts couldn't agree," he said, on whether the history- making day would fall Sunday, today or Tuesday. "So I decided not to side with any of them," Green told the United Press. "I have chosen May 30, so there won't be any doubt. Besides, its Memorial Day; that's a nice day." Congressional researchers havei Monday Evening, May 27, 1957. Predictions in News United Press correspondents around the world look ahead at the news that will make the headlines.

He was then 88 years, 8 months and IS days old. At that time the record for •both houses was thought to have been held by the late Rep. Robert L. Doughton (D-N.C.), who was 89 years, 56% days old when he retired from the House in 1953. However a vigilant congressional researcher, Winant Ellmore, turned up with evidence that another North Carolina Democrat, Rep. Charles M. Stedman, died in office in 1930 at the age of 89 years, 7 months and 25 days. Ellmore figured Green, born Oct. 2, 1867, would pass that record Tuesday. Others figured the date as today. One expert computed it to fall Sunday. "There are so many ways to figure it I don't know," Green said.

Income Tax Don't count on Congress reducing your income taxes next year, retroactive to next Jan. 1. The official Democratic line voiced by House Speaker Sam Rayburn is that the cut will be voted. But some Democratic tax writers say privately they don't expect any cut. ^ Airing New Delhi say.s that the reported romance between Roberto Ros- sellini, husband of Ingrid Bergman, and his pretty script-writer Sonali das Gupta may be aired in the Indian Parliament. Indian officials are upsel about die whole situation. Unless Sonali's family— which is very prominent in Indian politics — says no, it may be brought up for a debate.

First Aid If Egypt and Syria don't corns through with their promised payments to Jordan, the United States and Saudi Arabia can expect an urgent appeal for immediate help from Jordan's young King Hussein. Egypt, Syria and Saudi Arabia promised Hussein 34 million dollars a year to replace the British subsidy which Jordan sacrificed when it threw out the British commander of its Arab Legion. Saudi Arabia has paid its share. Egypt and Syria have failed to come through, and Hussein'i treasury is about empty. Unification Despite talk about increased unification of the armed forces, as an economy measure, Washington reports that early action is most unlikely. Congress dislikes the idea of a single military force under an all-powerful chief of staff.
