,Tho following moasago from Post
master General Work wob soot from
tho Air Mall wireless Btatlon horo at
North Platte last Saturday. It was
sent from the Arllnton station by
radiophone and was picked up all over
tho United States. It is an interest
ins and inspiring mcssago and Is
doubly interesting in that Postmaster
Genoral Work was really talking to
tho American people:
My message tonight is addressed to
every man, woman and child in tho
United States, bocnuse in varying de
grco thoy ar6 all affected by tho op
erations of tho postal service. This
word "service," by tho way, which is
so nptly linked with postal is some
thing moro than a mero designation
of ono of the governmental establish
ments. It fittingly describes what
may bo considered tho "good right
arm" of tho American people, and ex
presses unmistakably tho purposo for
which It was founded almost as soon
us the early colonists had set their
houso in order.
This purposo is nothing moro than
to servo tho people in an' lntlmat.3
way In their daily contact with their
follow, men. It Is such a personal,
essential sort of service that tho pos
tal establishment has been well callud
tho peoplo's agency. And for this root
son, perhaps, it is one of tho great
undertakings of tho business world
which has not been developed by pri
vate enterprise. Tho instinct of our
people from tho beginning was to re
tain control of this elemental function
"which so vitally concerns our dally
life by associating it with tho powera
of government
Originally, tho colonies maintained
a. system of postal communication,
which later was placed under federal
control by tho Constitutional Conven
tion of 1787, and finally in 1794 the
Post Offico department was estab
lished as ono of the executive branch
es of tho government. Thus today
wo have over a hundred million share
holders in this our greatest business
enterprise; we have considerably over
a quarter of a million employee?,
who, It must be remembered, are also
stockholders; and we utilize all thu
products of man's Inventive geniui
to carry on tho business. You will
say with me, I am sure, "that a mag
nlflcent instrumentality for service!"
Just what is this service? Primar
ily, it is the transmission pt intelli
gence, the carrying of your written
word from your own hand directly
and expeditiously into the hands of
someone miles away. But the sequel
is far reaching, because the postal
service is the foundation upon which
our government rest; It Is the leaven
which unites the tepers tho diversi
fied aspirations of our people; it is
the origin and oftentimes the end of
our joys and sorrows; it is the gen
esis of commerce and business as it
is carried on today; it is the medium
which most effectively promotes our
intellectual growth, it Is tho moons
which releases us from our own nar
row environment and and mokes us
world citizens, it is in fact, the great
est single force of civilization.
To me one of tho most striking
tilings about the postal service is tho
manner in which it has kept paco
with the development of our great
country. Indeed, it has often been a
step ahead of tho'ordiuary resources
and mechanical mowers at tho dis
posal of tho individual, because It
has been endowed by tho whole pci
plo and has available all of the Intel
lectual capital of tho country. It Is
a far cry from tho galloping pout
rider of pioneer dnyB to the soaring
airplane, and except for Its historical
Interest' tho lone horse-man appear
ing on the official boxI of tho Post
Offico department has no present day
significance. Tho steps in between
are represented by tho stago coach,
tho steam boat, tho express train, and
tho automobile Each constitutes an
epoch in American history. Aud
now tho postal Bervlce, fulfilling 1H
design as a means of communication,
has undertaken to adopt tho radio to
tho noeds of tho peopled I This meat
rocent achievement makes It posslblo
for mo to talk tonight to thousands
of people scattered ovor a wide area,
just as It carries Into thousands cf
homos In tho city and country dally
messages from tho scat of our govern
ment in tho form of weather and
market reports. Thus at tho outset
tho postal Borvlco is participating in
tho development of this latest means
of communication and adapting it to
practical, every-day use of tho indi
vidual. I wonder if thero aro not many
persons, who, liko mysolf beforo 1
joined tho army of postal workers, uc
copt tho manifold sorvico rendorcd by
tills groat organization without think
ing of tho multltudo of parts which
makes up tho whole. I am reminded
of the maohlnory of a powerful, oasy
runnlng automobile, encased in n
beautiful body, which effectively con
ceals tho engine, cogs and shaft-)
which enablo us to glido along so
smoothly and rapidly. When tho ma
chlnory is well oiled and In good
running order, wo aro not interested
In tho component parts; but lot a cog
slip, and Immediately wo awakon to
tho fact that thero is after all some
thing inBldo which now domands at
tention. Wo may denounco It em
phatically, but don't wo do something
moro? Don't wo either remedy the
fault oursolves, or have someone elao
do It
Now I wish you -would llkon this
situation to tho operation of tho post
al service. Tho railroad, tho autoiuo-
bllo, and the airplane roprcsont parts
of tho machlnory, as do tho quart or
of a million omploypos scattered
throughout tho United States. Tho
control is centered horo In Washing
ton, and wo will say that tho postal
officials horo and olsowhero take the
placo of tho chauffeur driving tho av
tomoblle. Tho body of tho car may
bo likened to tho post offico lobby
whoro you transact pour business.
Now if you were riding in this car
and something wont wrong with say
tho transmission as will often bo the
caso dispito tho Bklll of your chatfe.;r
wouldn't you call his attention to the
situation if ho had not already learned
of it and gavo him a clianco to fix
tho car beforo declaring it to be ready
for tho scrapheap?
You may bo sure that with men, as
well as with machinery, a cog will
slip now and then; but of tills you
may be equally certain tho postal
aorvlco is working twenty-four hours
dally striving to glvo you the same
efficient, easy-running service which
you might expect from the high
priced automobile I havo mentioned
It Is not run for profit, but for tho
benefit of mankind. You may expect
to get more than your monoy's worth.
It serves without distinction of per
sons, for It carries tho poor man's
letter and parcel just as cheaply aril
promptly as the millionaire's.
In our constant striving for perfec
tion, wo bespeak your cooperation. To
this end we havo announced a Postal
Improvement Week to begin on May
1st when we confidently hope to reach
a high degree of perfection In render
ing you service. The friendly atti
tude of tho patrons has been an In
spiration to wo who aro charged with
the administration of the postal ser
vice, and wo hope next week to ex
press pur appreciation by giving you
oven better service than heretofore..
Your continued assistance is essential
to our success, however, and I am
going to ask you to do your share
by plainly and correctly addressing
your mall matter. Y'our postmaster
and tho nowspapors will bring to your
attention various other ways In which
you may help us. Then, If you do not
get the particular kind of service you
may think you aro entitled to receive,
tell your postmaster about It, or wlto
to tho department hero In Washing
ton. Holp us to keep the cogs from
Tho chorus of approval from press
and publlo is confirmation enough in
barring Fatty Arbucklo from tho films
Will. II. HayB acted wisely and In ac
cord with popular opinion. It Is indi
cation also that tho movlo Interests
have definitely abandoned tho moth
ods of formor days, which would havo
oxploited Arbucklo's notoriety for tho
bonltlt of tho box office- What Judgo
Landls was required to do for organ
ized boso ball, Mr. Hays is doing for
tho films. Here, therefore tho country
finds Itself compolled to applaud a
roturn to rulo by dictators. Tho bnBO

their salvation and bo did tho motion

Tho Sutherland high school baso
ball team camo down last Friday and
played tho local high school team
Tho results showed plainly that either
the visiting team was sadly outclassed
or there was something wrong. Tho
Bcoro was 32 to 0 In favor of Horshey
Rumor was that several of tho
players on the visiting team had been
drinking something stronger than
ginger nlo and plainly showed tho
effects In their actions. While wo
rogret to mention this yet tho open
disgust expressed by so many attend
ing tho game, compels a statement
of somo kind. That young men bow
their "wild oats" Is only to bo ex
pected but to mako a public exhi
bition in this condition under the
fostorlng hand of "high school ath
lotlcs," Is to be deplored, and on
sorveB to lower tho estimate of school
patrons of atholetlcs In our schools,
and justly so. Had the athletic di
rector withdrawn tho Horshey team
from tho field, it would have been
much better for all concerned.
Later: Wo learn from authority
that because of tho condition of the
Sutherland players In tills game,
athletics havo boon withdrawn in the
Sutherland school for tho balnnco ot
thl3 school term. Hersliey Times.
