Reilly, of Meri den, ;Cdnnecticut's only Democratic representative in the House, 'scored a big personal victory' yesterday when his eight-hour postal law was report ed in the Senate as part' of ; the pos office appropriation bill. The eight hovr law is a measure for which pos tal clarks- - and v carriers N htve bee fighting for years. The report of the Senate ; committee yesterday insures its enactment into law as the measure has already passed the House. . The eight-hour bill, which was pre pared and introduced early. in the ses sion by Congressman Reilly, provides that; the postal employes' day of eight hours extend over a period of not more, than ten hours. The "Working hours of the pctat office men are. the same as heretofore. Jn the past, . the carriers especialy - did eight hours. work, but sometimes required as many as twelve or fifteen hours to get in their -full day. This was , due to schedule, of work which' would give them a few hours in the ' morning, a few . more in the "afternoon ' and pos sibly some more time in the evening m : order that .' their eight hours be made up. -;, " " ; i ; ' i ' For; years the carriers and clerks have foughtT against, this system but have been unsuccessful. Congressman Reilly is a member of the House com mittee on Post Offices and Post Roads, succeeding the late N. T. Sperry on that committee. - r He has taken a deep personal interest in postal affairs since he has been in Congress, and the eight-hour bill has been a chief, con cern with him during the present ses sion. . .The measure passed the House as part of the post . office, appropriation bill, but . met with opposition iri the Senate .committee on Post Offices. Oppositionists who have. -killed the bill m rormer , years got Dusy apa sougnc to, have amendment made to the meas ure that would' virtually kill the . ob jects aimed, at.
