If you will read the editorial page in this
week's (date of February 12) number of
Edition 1,575,000 Copies
you will find it clearly proved from the
Post-Office Department's own reports, that
it is totally unnecessary to put any addi
tional tax on magazines and periodicals,
and that a deficit of $17,500,000 is not
chargeable to the periodicals.
" For Instance, the Post
Oillrc Department is charging f 13.82l.10O of the cost of

rural free delivery was established as a matter of Govcrn
