Late-evening mailbox collec tions and later post office window service will be restored by the Washington Post Office Monday. The move reverses part— though not all—of a postal serv ice cutback made just three years ago. It follows thousands of complaints from Washington residents—along with more thou sands elsewhere—about delays and inconvenience. Deliveries aren’t affected. The present one -a - day delivery schedule in residential neighbor hoods—two in most business areas—will continue. Postal peo ple say the collection cutback, however, caused the most com plaints. Pilot Operation. Postmaster General Summer field announced the Washington service improvements yesterday. His announcement called the move a pilot operation and an aide said the hope is to take the samp step in other cities later. Actually the service restora tion was started by former Post master Jesse M. Donaldson a year ago. Late-evening collec tions such as all big cities used to have were re-established then in New York City and Mr. Don aldson said then that Washing ton would have high priority for a similar restoration. No further move was made un der the Truman administration, however. Now the new Postmas ter General* has ordered the Washington changeover in order | A REAL FAMILY HOME ► Ideal Area For Children \ 5505 Charlcote Rd., Bethesda | Open Tomorou , 1:30-5:30 ► On a safe, attractive street in lovely Greenwich Forest, ! ► Bethesda, this home includes just about everything: Brick, l slate roof, 1941 construction that shows excellent care. ► Among fine shade trees; Ist floor has paneled bedroom or den 1 ► and Vi bath, living room with fireplace, dining room and ; t kitchen, 3 ample sized bedrooms with good closet space, 2 ► baths on 2nd floor.

AF. 7-1111 to see what effect it has on costs. The new administration has also promised a cut in the peren nial postal deficit. But the hope is the srevice restorations can be accomplished without defeating this objective. Working schedules are being changed instead of hir ing more personnel, officials ex plained. Under the new order, 31 branch postoffices will extend window service from the present closing hour, 5:30 p.m., to 6. Benjamin Franklin Station, at Twelfth street and Pennsylvania avenue N.W., will sell stamps and operate parcel post and registry windows until 7 p.m., an hour and-a-half extension. Benjamin Franklin also will operate money order, postal sav ings, bond-registry and C. O. D. windows until 6, instead of 5:30. Saturday and Sunday window service at all offices won’t be affected, however. Weekday collections will be made up to about 11 p.m., instead of the present 8:30. Now only 10 boxes in the central downtown area have this late service. The new service will apply throughout the Washington Postoffice terri tory, which includes some com munities in nearby Maryland. Complained to Star. Last year, citizens complained to The Star about letters which took 36 hours to be delivered in Washington after being mailed in the District area. Scores complained of mailing letters early in the evening and not having £hem picked up till the following noon. Postal officials said they ex- Longer Winclow Hours Ordered pect about 60,000 letters dally to be picked up on the new late hour collection. Fewer people should complain hereafter, they said.
