Service Urged
By Henderson
Congressman John E. Hend
erson, of Cambridge, a membei
of the House Post Office Com
mittee, addressed the 15th dis
trict organization of the National
Association* of Rural Letter Car
riers at the Methodist church in
Dexter City, Saturday evening.
In his remarks, Henderson de
clared, "It is my sincere feeling
that the farmers of Ohio deserve
to have mail service as close as
possible to their homes. Rural
delivery has improved in many
respects. The present require
ment of three patrons per rout
mile is a vast improvement ovei
previous requirements, but in
keeping with the needs of mod
ern farm families for the con
veniences of life, I advocate
reduction in these mileage re
"In the volume of mai! re
ceived and sent, in the impor
tance, and in their contribution
to the support of the govern
ment, the farmer living beyond
present mail delivery routes
equal to his more conveniently
located neighbor. Oftentimes, hi
has no neighbor for half a milt
on either side because he owns
the land and pays taxes on hold
ings of that extent."
The Congressman compliment
ed the rural carriers for their
outstanding devotion to duty
their cooperative understanding
of post office department pro
blems, and the fine work of
their organization in unselfishly
advocating and supporting legis
lation for the improvement of
mail service and the operation
of the department.
