Postal Service threatens delivery cut

WASHINGTON (A) -- Some'
members of Congress and lead-
ers of postal unions said yes-
terday that the country wouldI
not accept a cutback in mail de-!
livery to three days a week.
Three - day - a - week de-
livery is among the options
open to the deficit - plagued
Postal Service in its campaign
to cut costs, J. T. Ellington, a
senior assistant postmaster gen-
eral, disclosed in an interview.I
ELLINGTON said "our!
most immediate option" is
eliminating delivery on Satur-
day or one other day of the
week.
Postal officials had previous-
ly said they were considering
such a move. Eliminating deliv-
ery on Saturday would save
5350 million per year and the
savings would be somewhat
higher if delivery were drop-!
ped on a business day, they
said.
"We are not excluding any-J
thing from consideration," El-I
lington added.

THE POSTAL Service would
have to obtain approval of the
Postal Rate Commission, an in-
dependent agency, before elim-
inating any service.
As' d about three-day-a-week
delivery, Chairman Charles Wil-
son of the House postal facili-
ties subcommittee said, "It'sI
ridiculous even to consider any-
thing like that. It's stupid."
Wilson, (D-Calif.), said, "This
is going to stir up the Ameri-
can people considerably.
ANOTHER member of the
subcommittee, Paul Simon, (D-
Ill.), said, "This is another step
in the wrong direction. The Pos-
tal Service is making the same
mistake that the railroads did.
If they cut back service, they
are just going to increase their
deficits."
Sen. Gale McGee, (D-Wyo.),
chairman of the Senate Post Of-
fice Committee, said, "I don't1
expect three-day service unless
others outside the Postal Serv-
ice fail to live up to their re-
sponsibilities. I'm speaking
about Congress and the Presi-

dent." postal unions vowed to fight any

cial crisis by doubling its con-
gressional subsidy for three F R A N C I S Filbey, presi-
years. The postal deficit is esti- dent of the 350,000-member Am-,
mated to reach a record $1.5 erican Postal Workers Union,;
billion for the fiscal year end- said his union "would fight any
ing June 30. effort to impose such a drastic
cut in service."

PRESIDENT FORD opposes
the bill, and a similar proposal(
was voted down in the HouseI
last fall.
McGee said the Postal Serv-
ice does not believe three-day-a-
week delivery "would be good
postal policy. But they do have
to stay solvent. They have to
have some alternative ready so
that they can pay their bills."

Asked how the union would
do this, Filbey said, "In any
way we can, through Congress,
or the courts." -
James Rademacher, president
of the 200,000 - member Nation-
al Association of Letter Car-
riers, said postal managers
"are going to have the fight of
their lives" if they try to re-
duce delivery days.
"I DON'T believe the peo-
ple of this country would toler-
ate that," he said.
Rademacher said he would
suggest an amendment to Mc-
Gee's bill to require six-day de-
livery.
EARLY FLAG
SALT LAKE CITY (UPI) -
Betsy Ross' flag may be famous
now, but it wasn't too popular
in the revolutionary era.
The Sixth U.S. Army says the
flag - featuring 13 stars and
stripes and 13 stars in a circle
-was "scarcely ever used in
the period 1777-1795" and then
only as a naval ensign.
The popularity of the flag,
which has traditionally been
attributed to Ross, is actually
due to artists from Emmanuel
Leutze - "Washington Crossing
the Delaware" - to Norman
Rockwell, according to the'
Sixth Army's new flag book.
The oldest map known is a
clay tablet found in Iraq. Made
about 2300 B.C., it probably
shows a man's estate in a val-
ley, according to the World{
Book Encyclopedia.

evidence we have so far - we
don't have all the evidence in-
that it probably was harmful,
but I wouldn't want to make
that comment at this time."
Yesterday, Nixon cruised 50
miles down the Li River past
spectacular mountains that he
reneatedly compared to pyra-
mids.
TODAY the Nixon fly to Can-
ton, where they will visit a com-
mune and the hot springs. They
depart Sunday for home.
Secretary of State Henry Kis-
singer, who recently said Nix-
on would report to the White
House on his China trip after
his return, told reporters in
Washington: "Former Presi-
dent Nixon will definitely be
debriefed when he comes back,
but it will not be by me."
Kissinger also said he did not
expect to see Nixon in Califor-
nia.
ONE OF the things Nixon is
expected to tell the U. S. offic-
ials in his debriefing is his im-
pression of the current split up
in the Peking hierarcy between
leftist radicals and the moder-
ates they are attacking.
In Peking, a poster campaign
describing Vice Premier Teng
Hsiao-ping as China's "foremost
capitalist leader" began Thurs-
day.
Teng, groomed for the pre-
miership by Chou En-lai in the
last two years of his life, had
been the No. 1 target in the
leftists' campaign against "cap-
italist roaders" but had not
previously been publicly nam-
ed.
THE CAMPAIGN organizers
stressed that names were not to
be used until the accusers were
fully confident of their facts.
The campaign against "capi-
talist roaders" pits radical left-
ists rigidly committed to Maoist
ideology against moderates fa-
voring alternative approaches
to China's problems. China's
acting premier, Hua Xuo-feng,
is associated with the radicals.
