Most of the mail was in response to letters Dees had sent out since the convention asking for contributions to Mcgovern a Effort to beat president Nixon in the november election.

New contracts with postal unions have to be negotiated by july when the present ones expire he said and he said labor leaders have been proposing a 10-cent first class stamp to pay for wage increases. Quot it would be Foolhardy to make Ghat statement a he said when asked of there would be no postal rate increase any time next year.
