Write a Letter If You Want Change There has been a great deal of discussion pertaining to the opening of the postofllce on Saturday afternoon, and the feeling is general that If the postofflce were open, it would be a great benefit to the community. But It should be remembered that the fact that the postofflce la not now open on Saturday Is not due to the local employees, but departmental regulations of hours, and other details which will not allow the local office to be open on Saturday. A similar situation exists, we understand in most of the other postoffices in county seat cities adjoining us. It has been wisely suggested that If local business men would address requests for the opening of the post- office on Saturday afternoon to the pcetoffice department, it might hdp to bring about the reopening on that day.
