BROMWELL SECOND IOWA DISTRICT A Congressman's mail runs a hundred letters, more or less, a day. Each letter is read, answered and kept or sent on to the proper destination. It comes and .goes several times a day. Most of them have to do with ksues before Congress. Of these, some are "one man's opinion." Others come in bunches, expressing the position of a group. Some come as petitions. Some are telegraphed. Some are post cards. Some have clippings or pictures. They are handwritten, typed, mimeographed and printed. A surprising number come from outside the Dktrict, from Maine to Hawaii. Usually, these have to do with a cause, a troubled industry, an embattled union, humane societies, conserva- tionalists and cries for help. These we acknowledge and tar- ward to the Congressman from the writer's District. The most delightful come from children. Most of them seek information about their country. None are more welcome. Many letters are personal seeking the assktance of the office. In the Capitol these are called "case" letters. A file is opened and the Congressional office works with the proper department of government until the matter k closed or the U. S. Government withdraws. Sometimes action is quick; sometimes not, depending on the department, the matter involved, and its work load. The United States Navy, for example, literally takes action within minutes. We have had a constant flow of letters expressing concern over the spread of communism, here and ekewhere. Thk k the great, deep and constant compelling concern of the people of Iowa's Second Dktrict. When a bill comes to the floor for debate or before my committee, the Judiciary, I go back over all the letters I have received from our people on the subject. Often a single handwritten card will present an important line of reasoning that all the rest have missed. How to write most effectively: personally written and signed Jetters seem most sicere; a stamped or printed signature makes a letter look like bulk mail no matter how vital the message; one main idea per letter is good and keeps the files straight. If you have ideas on two matters, write twice; state your reasons- There are often as important as your position and is one way a private citizen can truly contribute to the government of hk country. A clipping, a cartoon, a little humor' makes a letter vivid* If we are personally acquainted, identify yourself,, age, work, experience; all round out the picture. Never believe your letters do not count. The first thing a Congressman does in the morning is read hk mail; the last thing before he leaves for the day, he Signs his nftaiL" One of the roost often asked questions on .Capitol Hill is: "How's ypur mail running?"
