If you will read the editorial page in this week's (date of February 12) number of THE SATURDAY EVENING POST 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 nir.il free delivery against the second-class mail. Now, rural free delivery was established as a matter of Govcrn ment policy, and we believe in it, but it is not fair to charge one dollar of this etpense against the magazines It is undoubtedly of bcnellt to the daily newspapers. IhiI the Detriment i truing In exempt them row mi increase in rute. The magazines do not need or want once a day or twice a day deliveries on these niral route " Page 2"i(i.

"It is impossible that a business of over 1200,000,00(1 should not oiler an opportunity for enormous saving. And a business like that of our ureal IVntal Depart ment, with endless ramifications, must otler endless opportunities. "No Postmaster-General entering his position to-day, with all the duties befalling a Caliinet ollicial besides running his Department, no matter how great his Intelligence or how tine his training, can grasp the details of this enormous business before he disappears, There is no time given to him to find then.' opportunities to save expense. Tho affairs of the Depart- ment must, for the most part, be administered by thoso under him." Given a chance they would save in business economies more than the alleged deficit of $17,500,000. mVVe ask Congress to give us a Director of Posts as recommended by the joint Congressional committee of 1907, an officer who shall be non-political, and whose . term of service shall not be subject to political changes, and who shall conduct the workings of the Post-Office Depart ment with the efficiency, economy and business-like methods which distinguish high-class American business enterprise.
