"PARITY" FOR PARCEL POST
It is now a matter of public record that the
Post Office Department doesn't like Public Law
199 (that "public-be-damned" parcel post stran-
gulation law) any better than you do.
Completing its fourth year of increasing
frustration under what is widely known .as the
"private law of Railway, Express",. the Depart-
ment is calling on Congress for help. In letters
to the chairmen of both the Senate and House
Post Office committees, Acting Postmaster Gen-
eral aurice Stans pleads for legislation to rees.

post offices.
"Non uniform size and weight limitations,'
writes Mr. Stans, "are discriminatory as they
affect the individual. Persons and businesses
located at second, third and fourth class offices,
or on rural or star routes may ship and receive
parcels weighing up to 70 pounds and 100 inch-
es in length and girth, while others located in
communities served by first class offices are re-
stricted to parcels not exceeding. 72 inches in
length and girth and either 20 or 40 pounds de-
pending on the distance of the movement of the
parcel."
Mr. Stans interjects here the fascinating fact
that "a mailer in a first-class office may ship a
heavier parcel to France and 62 other countries
than to any city in the United States".
"Parcel post is a major factor in the promo-
tion of commerce and trade," writes Mr. Stans,
"and is the only small parcel service in the US
which provides comprehensive service through-
out the length and breadth of the country." As
such, he appeals to the Congress to free the
parcel post service from discriminatory rules
that are a headache to the postmaster, that con-
fuse, irritate and pilfer the public; that increase
prices through adding to the shipping costs of
thousands of businesses and deprive the Post
Office Department of millions of hitherto pro-
fitable income.
Perhaps the abused parcel post users -
which are you and me and everybody should
write some letters to Congress tool
