Barber Ross 11th and G Streets t J r r Plans for the extension, Improvement, and reduction in rates of the parcel post were announced yesterday by Postmas- ter General Burleson. The changes, which are to become effective on August 15, include an increase frota 11 pounds to 20 pounds in the .-maximum weight of parcels, a material reduction In the postage rates in the first and second womes, and the abandonmenf-of the par- cel post map as a means of computing rates, and the substitution for It of a rate chart Individualized to every postoffice in the United Slates. The plans contem- L plate, the of a, large number of automobiles to be us.ed exclusively for the delivery of parcel post matter. While, for -the' present, the maximum weight limit of 20 pounds and the re- duction In rates will apply only to the first and second zones, from any given distance of about 150 miles changes directed yesterday consti- tute the first long step toward a uni- versal extension of the system and a general reduction in the rates of postage Recipe Free For Weak Men ind Name and Address You Can Have it free and Ba Strong and Vigorous.

Handle All Small Packages. "It is my expectation and said Postmaster General Burleson, "that eventually and it may be fifteen or twenty years the postal service will handle practically all of the small pack- age transportation business in the United States. The maximum weight limit', extended now from 11 to 20 pounds, I expect to see increased to 100 pounds, and experience may demonstrate the practicability of handling the parcel business at even lower rates than we now propose. "In the making of extensions and re- ductions of rates it is necessary for us to proceed with caution, ?o as to afford ample opportunity to prepare for the in- creased business For that reason we have made the changes proposed apply only fice, and the flrat zone rate of postage will applj to all parcel poet mail depos- ited at any office for local delivers, or for delivery by city (.arrier or on ruial routes emanating from that postofflce 1 The second zone shall Include the re- mainder of what ta now the first zone, together w ith the present second zouc and shall include all the unitg of area located in whole, or in part, within a radius of approximately 130 miles from any given postoffice Reduction in Rates. "The on parcels weigh- ing in excess of four ounces in the pro- posed first zojie will be i educed from cents for the first pound and 1 cent for each additional pound or fraction thereof to 5 cents foi the first pound, and cent for each additional two pounds or tion thereof, and the rate for the second zone will be reduced from 5 cents for the first pound and 3 cents for each addition il pound, or 6 cents for the first pound and 4 cents for each additional pound or frac- tion thereof to 5 cents tor the first pound and 1 cent for each additional pound or fraction thereof "The maximum weight of parcel-post packages will be increased from eleven pounds to twenty pounds the increase uf weight to app'y only to the first and sec- ond zones. No change has been made in the size or form of the package Statistics collected by the departmen show that quite one-third of the tota number of parcels mailed are handle- within the proposed first and secon zones, and the "Postmaster General be lieves the Increase In the weight liml and the reduction of the rates of postag In the first and second zones, as proposed benefit Kreatlj. more than one-thlri of the public, and that the producer, th consumer, and the local merchant wil profit materially by the changes. Cheap to Market. He points out, too, that the farmers who were led to anticipate much benefi from the parcej post service, will be af forded a cheap means of transporting -their products directly to the consumer and that the local merchant whose trad does not justify the employment of ex tensive delivery service also will be bene filed, as the system will put htm In clos touch with his customers At the outset It was estimated tha parcels would be handled durjn. the first of the operation of the par eel-post system, but it now appears from the statistics that. Influenced by th changes proposed, yesterday, the service will be so popularized, that the numbe of parcels carried during the ensuing twelve months will be more than double the original estimate. The rate sheet, which is to be used a a substitute for the parcel-post map will be prepared soon as practlcabl and attached to the parcel-post guide The rate chart, to be made for each sepa rate postoffice, will be worked out from the focal point of the unit in which th postoffice is located. The simplicity o the plan. It Is thought, will make easily determlnable the rate of p6stage from that unit to any other on any mallattle parcel, and will greatly facilitate thi handling of parcel post matter at post- offlce windows. Under regulations recently adopted th use of distinctive stamps no longer Is mandatory, and the public now is per mltted to mail parcels with ordinary Stamps affixed.
