Mills Seeks End To Present Type Of Posial Service L1TTE ROCK CAP) -- Rep. Wilbur D. Mills, D-Ark., in- r p d uL c e d legislation today which he said would return the administration of the Postal Service to the people, "The time has come to end the myth of economy, efficiency, and political neutrality that serve as the basis for the present postal structure, 1 Mills said in a prepared statement issued through his office. "The time has come for Congress to repeal the act that created this monster and set it free for the peoples' control." .Mills said his bill calls for a return of the Postal Service to cabinet status, but says carriers', postmasters and employ- es would be hired in accord with Civil Service practice. "Policy, not personnel, would be returned to t h e political process...," Mills said. "The present postal system is but another reflection of reform for tlie sake of reform -- an unfortunate example of the price that must always be paid for the folly of equating the necessity for improvements with the need for radical change. "Since its inception, the postal system of this nation has had but one abiding purpose -- to ·serve the people, providing an ecnomical and efficient means of communication available to all, and to meet this purpose, the nation h a s always been willing to subsidize its costs," Mills said. But the guises _ of postal reform, political isolation and self-sufficiency, are only masks to dun the American public into believing that higher prices and executive politics are truly reform." Questioning (CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE) man, Nixon's former chief domestic adviser, that Nixon had approved "the Ellsberg operation," which they interpreted to mean the break-in of the doctor's office. However, Colson, interviewed by newsmen when he left the committee room, said it wpulc be "the darkest of speculation" to draw such a conclusion from his testimony. He said lie. h a d simply repeated the words Ehrlichman had used and did not know what Ehrlichman meant bj "operation." "I was always under the im pression the President had ap proved the Ellsberg investiga tion, but whether he knew the full details of it, I have no way of knowing because I never dis cussed it with him," Colson said. Republican members general ly regarded Colson as a helpfu witness for Nixon. Rep. Delbert L. Latlfl, - R Ohio, called him "extremelj helpful. He makes it clear thi President was not involved ii anything." Latta said Colson denied eve discussing clemency for Watel gate burglar E. Howard Hun Jr. with Nixon and called for mer White House counsel John W. Dean III a liar for -so testifying. Rep. Robert McClory, R-lll., said Colson firmly rejected any idea that Nixon's 1971 decision to raise milk price support's was a response to a $2 million pledge from the dairy industry to his 1972 presidential campaign.
