[ocr errors]


The purpose of this proposed legislation is to remove difficulties of administration which the Post Office Department is now experi, encing in communities having large populations which have developed since the beginning of the war because

of Government projects, war industries, etc. by permitting the establishment of post-office branches

stations in such communities, which it is unable to do in many instances under the present. law.

There is quoted herein a letter addressed to the Speaker of the House by the Postmaster General recommending this legislation and


explaining quite fully the conditions which necessitate its enactment, as follows:


Washington, D. C., March 23, 1944. Hon. Sam RAYBURN, Speaker, House of Representatives,

Washington, D. C. MY DEAR MR. RAYBURN: This Department is experiencing difficulty in administration because of the restriction upon establishing post-office branches and stations contained in the act of_June 9, 1896, entitled "An Act Making appropriations for the service of the Post Office Department for the fiscal year ending June thirtieth, eighteen hundred and ninety-seven” reading as follows:

That hereafter no station, substation, or branch post office shall be established beyond the corporate limits or boundaries of any city or town in which the principal office to which such station, substation, or branch office is attached is located, except in cases of villages, towns, or cities of fifteen hundred or more inhabitants not distant more than five miles as near as may be from the outer boundary or ‘limits of such city or town in which the principal office is located.”

There are now many instances where Government housing projects are built near factories or other Government projects and these settlements have less than 1,500 population and exceed the limit of 5 miles from the corporate boundaries of the nearest town. In many other instances the needs of the armed forces must be met, thus making necessary the establishment of branches. In many of these cases the projects or camps are in localities which were previously fields or woodland and there being no residents who could qualify with respect to residence for the position of postmaster.

To permit of the furnishing of efficient postal service it is requested that the provision in the act above referred to be repealed. A tentative draft of bill to åcoomplish this purpose is submitted herewith with the request that favorable consideration be given thereto.

It has been ascertained from the Bureau of the Budget that this recommendation for legislation is in accord with the program of the President. Very truly yours,

FRANK C. WALKER, Postmaster General.
