From Pillar to Post

February 1977
New Republic;2/26/77, Vol. 176 Issue 9, p6
The author comments on the U.S. Postal Service's announcement that it will not raise postal rates in 1977 and warns those in the publishing industry that this may not apply to those in the publishing industry. He explains that the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 called for Congress to appropriate funds to cover the phasing in of an increase in second-class postage, and that the funds are not there for fiscal year 1978.
