THE MATTER EXPLAINED
APPLIES ONLY TO MAGAZINES
Believes Distinction Should Be Mad
Between Advertising 2nd Le
gitimate Reading Matter.
Washington. Postmaster General
Hitchcock's plan of requiring the
magazines to pay Increased postage
on their advertising pages sufficient
to eliminate postal deficits and to
warrant 1 cent postage on first class
mail in the near future was officially
explained. Mr. Hitchcock, feeling
his position had not been clearly un
derstood. Issued this statement:
"Postmaster General Hitchcock be
lieves that in carrying out the ad
ministration's purpose to accomplish
a reasonable Increase in the postage
rates on certain kinds of second-class
matter, more distinction should be
made between advertising and what
is termed legitimate reading matter.
He does not favor, under present con
ditions, an increase in the rates of
postage for carrying reading matter.
Any increase thus applied, he points
out, will place a special burden on a
large number of second-class publica
tions, such as educational and reli
gious periodicals, that derive little or
no profit from advertising.
"For these publications and also
for any other legitimate reading mat
ter in periodical form. Mr. Hitchcock
suggests a continuation of the pres
ent low postage rate of 1 cent a
pound and recommends that the pro
posed increase in rates be only ap
plied to magazine advertising matter.
"This plan would be in full acord
with the statute governing second
class mail, a law that never justified
the inclusion under the second-class
rates of the vast amounts of advertis
ing now transported by the govern
ment at a tremendous loss.
"In view of- the vanishing postal
deficit Mr. Hitchcock thinks that if
the magazines can be required to pay
what it costs the government to car
ry their advertising pages the depart
ment's revenues will be large enough
to warrant 1 cent postage on first
' Under the plan proposed it will be
possible without Increasing the ex
penditure of public funds to utilize
for the benefit of the entire people
that considerable portion of the post
al revenues now expended to meet
the cost of a special privilege enjoyed
by certain publishers.
"Experiments made by the depart
ment show that it is quite feasible to
determine the relative weights of the
advertising matter and the legitimate
reading matter carried by the maga
zines and Mr. Hitchcock is convinced
that his plan can be put into success

The brain that dreamed the magic stralai
Is dust these many, many years.
Tet still the music swells and wanes
And works Its upell on him who hears;

Of haunting swing and rhythmic beat
Are murmured chords that sins alone.
The hand that wrote the olden rhymes
These many, many years Is dust;
The sword It held In olden times

Some people fish by casting the line
