Daley aides not
upset by support,
for challengers
CHICAGO (k') - Two challengers to Mayor Richard Daley's
bid for renomination today picked up key endorsements over the
weekend, but aides to the mayor quickly discounted them as
insignificant.
Edward Sadlowski, head of the nation's largest district of the
United Steel Workers Union, endorsed Alderman William Singer
for the Democratic nomination.
And the Rev. Jesse Jackson, a Chicago civil rights leader and
head of Operation People United to Save Humanity, announced
his support fpr black state Sen. Richard Newhouse.
DALEY, first elected mayor two decades ago, is trying for a
sixth term. The winner of the Democratic primary will face
Alderman John Hoellen in April..
Hoellen, the only Republican on the City Council, headed a
committee to find a mayoral candidate and was forced to accept
the post when no one volunteered.
The Daley organization said it does not consider the endorse-
ments from the labor and black leaders significant and predicted
a sizeable majority for their chieftain.!
BACKERS of former State's Atty. Edward Hanrahan of Cook
County said they, too, are confident of winning the nomination.
Singer, 34, an independent alderman who was behind the
ouster of Daley from the 1972 Democratic National Convention,
launched his campaign two years ago with an attack on the
inadequacies of the Chicago school system.
Singer also has accused the Daley administration of corrup-
tion. Many of the mayor's close associates have been convicted
of political crimes in recent months.
HANRAHAN, 53, has chipped away on the issue of Daley's
health. The 72-year-old mayor suffered a stroke last summer
and was forced to stay away from City Hall for about 100 days.
Supporters of Newhouse, 51, say they hope the city's black
vote will push him into the general election.

a year-long probe.
HE IS the first incumbent
senator totbe indicted since
1924.
After the indictment, he with-
drew from a race for re-election
under pressure from the Repub-
lican party, saying there was
no "sensible or sound way" to
conduct the race while facing a
major trial.
He also claimed that t h e
charges brought against h i m

yesterday he told newsmen

ment."

WASHINGTON () - Rising,
postal rates could lead to the
first decline in mail usage since
the 1930's, the new postmaster
general, Benjamin Bailar, says.
"We are running a level just
about equal to last fiscal year.
And if we have a decline from
last year's volume, which I
think is a distinct possibility, it
will be the first year since the
Depression that postal volume
has not increased," Bailar said
in an interview.
POSTAL officials report they
handle about 300 million pieces
of mail on an average day cur-
rently, with that rate doubling
in the Christmas period.
The last increase, from eight
cents to ten cents per first-class
letter, took effect last March.
Christmas mail then dectined
four and one-half per cent from
the previous year.
Bailar now says an increase
to 12 or 13 cents per letter will
be needed by the end of this
year. If the rate goes to 12
cents, it wifl have doubled since
1968.
HE BLAMED the increaSe on
higher costs, particularly labor
costs, which account for 85 per
cent of the Postal System's to-
tal.
How much this year's increase
will amount to will be deter-
mined in large part by c o n-
tracts with postal unions sched-
uled to be signed this summer.
A Postal Service spokeswo-
man said any loss of revenue
caused by a decline in mail
volume would be covered by the
rate increase.,
THE NEW rates are calculat-
ed, she said, to take a volume
loss into account so the Postal
Service would not lose income.

Asked whether declining vol-
ume would result ire r-ductions
in manpower she note.I that the
current Postal Service contract
includes a no-layoff provision.
She said calculations are not
available as to whether a n
decline in volume would indi-
cate a manpower reduction and
said any such planning w o u I d]
have to await the outcome of
the upcoming contract regotia-
tions.
A COMPLICATING factor in
the contract negotiations is aI
threat by the letter carriers ur-
ion to strike if a controversial!
delivery system is put into ef-
fect.
The union contends the sys-
tem, developed to measure in-
dividual carriers' performancet
so that more efficient routes cant
be established, would eliminate1
150,000 jobs.

MITRE is a place which daily faces the challenge of minds over matter, and where,
even more importantly, minds matter a lot. Since we're a nonprofit system engineering
company operating wholly in the public interest and dealing with tough problems
assigned to us by more than a score of governmental agencies, we know that our
greatest resource is the human mind. And we know that the kind of mind we need also
needs to know that it will be working on important problems with other professionals.
What's more, we'll be quite specific in spelling out your assignment to you. All of this
because you matter and because at MITRE, minds matter.
We are currently seeking new graduates to work in command and control systems,
information processing systems, electronic surveillance systems, communications
systems, and environmental, health and other social systems.
If you're an EE, Computer Science, Math, Operations Research, or Physics major, you
could be working on problems in telecommunications, voice communications, micro-
wave and digital signal processing, educational information systems, radar design,
propagation studies or advanced modulation, coding, error control and data
compression techniques.
Or, you might want to get involved with solid waste disposal techniques, digital
information systems, data handling and reduction, microprogramming techniques,
data base structure, time sharing, text processing, management information systems
for courts and police, computer program design and development or evaluation of
present day software for phase-over to next generation machines. These are just a few
of the areas in which you might get involved at MITRE.
All of these positions require a minimum of a BS degree. If you have more than a
bachelor's, that's even better. Almost two-thirds of our 750 technical staff members
have advanced degrees.
All these openings are at our corporate headquarters at Bedford Massachusetts
(suburban Boston). If you are interested and think you can meet our standards, send us
your resume. Better yet, we'd like to talk to you on campus. Sign up at your Placement
Office. We'll be there on March 13 and 14.
