Call to Rural Carriers.
To the Rural Carriers of South
The greatest power in the
world to-day is organized power.
Singlehanded individuals can do
little or nothing,but when united
they can accomplish wonders.
Every carrier appreciates this
fact to the fullest; therefore I
shall not dwell upon it, only to
the extetit of reminding you
that In unity there is strength.
Let us. arouse ourselves and
organize. Our state jorganiza
tioi can be useful in many ways:
1st. By working together, with
the prestige of the state associa
tion behind, each of us, we will
finally succeed in creating a sen
timent for better roads-and
who should be more interested
in good roads than the,rural car
rier? This thing cannot be done
in a day; we must keep ever
lastingly at it as the days and
months go by and the victory
will surely be won.
2d. The salary question is
another incentive for organiza
tion. By co-operating with the
other state associations through
out the United States we..shall
be better able to communicate
our wants and needs to the post
office department and thus indi
rectly to congress.
3d. There is a social and fra
ternal feature of inestimable
value in getting together in
county and state meetings.
True, all of us cannot be- dele
gates to the state* conventions,
but if we organize we can send
good men to the state conven
tion who may be able to bring
the next convent16n to our very
doors-first in one part of the
state and then In another.
There are a great many other
reasons for organizing which I
shall not mention- for lack of
.If this call should .meefthe
eye of :a carrier in an unorgan
ized county, he should lose no
time in making of hiself a
pioneer in this cause by getting
busy. Let' him drop a postal
card to every carrier in his
county (the state associatior
will pay for the cards) and urge
them to me,et him at some cen
tral locality, on Thanksgiving
day, or New Year's -day (not
later than this), and organize.
If you will secure a half dozer
or more to meet with you, I will
come or send some 'one of the
state officers to help you or
In closing, let ruie Impress upon
you the supreme imnportance of
organizing. They are organiz
ing very rapidly in the north
and wvest and in our neighboring
states. Let us not lag behind.~
If organization is a good thing
for them, it must be good for us
