Service from arbitrarily closing 448 small poet offices in West Virginia. "These 446 small or fourth class post offices in West Virginia are doomed by October Ist of this year unless we take immediate action to stop these wholesale closings," Congressman Hechler explained. "At the rate they are putting the heat on, two-thirds of the small post offices will have their throats cut by June 20 - which ironically enough is West, Virginia's birthday." Congressman Hechler is joining with Rep. Paul Simon, {D-Ill.) and other Members of Congress in a suit being filed in Federal Court in the District of Columbia to prevent the U.S. Postal Swtem from closing small post offices throughout the United States. "This lawsuit is part of a three-pronged effort to stop this highhandd action by the U.S. Postal Service which is clearly against the public interest," Congressman Hechler explained, adding: "I have also asked the Chairman of the House Post Office and Civil of the Senate Post Office and Civil Service Committee, Senator Gale McGee {D-Wyoming) to launch an immediate investigation and place a hold order against any further small post office closings." The West Virginia Congressman lambasted the U.S. Postal Service for what he termed "blackmailing Congress because we have been pointing out the excessive waste in the Postal Service, Whenever we point out the lavish furnishings and top-heavy $60,000 salaries these top postal executives have, they dream up some way to cut down on essential mail services to the public. If they would stop hiring industry big-shots with bloated salaries, and stop wasting money on thick rugs, fancy desks and drapes, and clean out the layers of parasites making time-and-motion studies of clerks and carriers, then maybe they could save some real money," Hechler exclaimed. Congressman Hechler also called attention to his bill to abolish all third class "junk mail" preferential postage the Texaco Distributor for this area.

He also indicated that he has just completed drafting a bill to do away with the Congressional franking privilege, prohibiting Congressional newletters and similar mass mailings, and banning the time-honored Congres- sional practice of sending congratula- tory letters to high school seniors. "These measures will save additional money, result in better postal service, and hopefully help save the small post offices," Hechler declared.
