SOME PROBLEMS SOLVED
BY THE POSTOFFICE BOSS
By Lowell Mellett
(United Press Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, August 9. "What
do you want to talk about?" asked the
"Nothing doing," said the Postmas
ter General, cordially.
"I absolutely can't, won't and shan't
talk politics;" said Mr. Burleson. "Try
! something else."
"All right, but why do they call you
the politician of the cabinet?"
"I suppose that is because yo;i writ
ing people have to coin catch phrases
to describe, catalogue, classify, and in
some degree dramatize public men
in the public eye. That's cnlv my
opinion, lou folks did it .'.art oug'it
to know why."
"Speaking of politics"
"We aren't speaking of politics,"
said the Postmaster General.
"what means this holler in the
rural districts about restrictions of
the rural free delivery?"
The Postmaster General had been
at least half-interested in the papers
on his desk, but now he swung sharp
ly around in his chair. He removed
his nose glasses probably to save
them from the heat of the sudden
blaze in his eyes.
"There has been no restriction! Who
says there has been? A revision is
under way which gives service to
many hundred thousands who are en
titled to it, but heretofore have been
increasing the cost of the postal serv
ice and without taking away service
from anyone who now has It. It is ac
complished with money saved by elim
inating waste effort, extravegance,
special favors and privileges.
"Just for example: Parts of hun
dreds of rural routes have been trav
eled dally by two or more rural car
riers. There are cases in which as
many as six or seven carriages, each
getting from $1,000 to $1,200 a year,
have been going over the same eight
or ten miles of road. Politics! This
vicious duplication of service was built
up through a series of years by polit
ical influence. By cutting out these
duplications we get a balance avail
able for service in territory that has
long deserved it.
"Do you know what retraces are?
No. Well, I'll tell you. John Smith Is
a wealthy and Influential farmer, liv
ing a half mile from a rural route.
John uses his influence and gets an
order requiring the rural carrier to go
the half mile to his gate, deposit and
collect mall and return to the main
road a full mile of extra travel.
Eliminating twenty-six such half
mile retraces Is equivalent to elimi
nating an unnecessary rural route and
special privilege amounting to $1,200
"Between April 1 and July 10 the
readjustment of the rural service and
inauguration of motor vehicles service
left $821,754 for establishing new
routes. With iiart of this money 73."
new routes have been put in opera
tion, serving S5.74S additional families.

every doctor would leave his office
once in a while and tell people bow
to observe the rules of health in
stead of staying in his office and
waiting for sick people to come to
him," he said.
Temperance Is Insisted Upon.
A great deal of Doctor Paulson's
lecture dealt with temperance, for
this, in addition to health, is a vital
part of the Adventists' religion. ' No
member of this church is permitted
to use tobacco or liquor in any form.
"The wife who dopes herself with
coffee and tea every day hasn't much
reason for objecting to her husband
using tobacco or intoxicating liquors,"
said the doctor. "Coffee and tea con
tain stimulating drugs that are habit
forming. Just as tobacco and intoxi
cating liquors or opium. The only
difference is that they ere not as
strong and do their mischief more
slowly. They all belong on the sara.
scale and should be avoided.
Doctor Paulson explained how na
ture has fortified the human body
against disease and likened these de
fences to the fortifications protecting
a city. He said that every person is
endowed with a certain amount of
these defenses against disease, and
that it rests with the individual wheth
er he will conserve his health or
squander it. He said that the Bib
lical phrase 'whatsoever a man sow
eth, that shall he also reap' is abso
lutely founded on fact, and that any
doctor will bear out the statement.
The reason that some people can do
more rash things with their health
and "get away with it" than other
persons is that they have more health
Strength Is a Defense.
"The strong man who wastes his
health by indiscretions may get away
with It himself, but his future gener
ations must pay in full for his mis
takes," he exclaimed. "The strong
man physically Is proof against dis
ease; the strong man spiritually is
proof against temptation."
Fresh ,ajj and pure water are the
best medicines in Doctor Paulson's
opinion. He told how tuberculosis
had been stamped out among the
monkeys in the Chicago zoo through
opening their cages to the fresh air.
"We saved the monkeys," he said,
"but we continue to let human beings
die from the same causes."
Doctor Paukon talked on dietetics
this afternoon. He will be in Colum
bia for two or three days and may de
liver other lectures before he departs
for his home in Chicago. He is a grad
uate of the Beilvue Medical College
and Hospital in New York City.
