North Westchester Times, New Castle Tribune, Mount Kiseo, N.Y., Dec. 24, J 359 N Parcel Post Rates Increases Feb. 1 • Postmaster General Arthur E. Summerfield announced today that the Post Office Department is put­ ting the new parcel post rate in­ creases approved by the Interstate Commerce Commission into effect after Christmas. The effective date will be Feb. 1. Postal laws require a Postmas­ ter General to seek an increase in parcel post rates whenever that service is not self-sustaining. In petitioning the ICC for the in­ crease in November, 1958, Mr. Summerfield reported -nnual loss­ es on parcel post were running about $88 million. ICC announced in November it has consented to increases in par­ cel post rates averaging 17.1 per cent, or about $88 million a,year. This will be the first increase in parcel post rates in approximately six years. The last increase was in 1953, and, since then, there have beer substantial increases in the Post Office Department's costs for wages, transportation t and many other items. The s after - Christmas effective date of Feb. 1, will allow time for dissemination of the new rate schedules for fourth class mail (parcel post and catalogs), as well as time for publication of neces­ sary notices in the Federal Regis­ ter and changes in scale comput­ ers used in post offices and indus­ try. Up 5 Cents Some examples of the increases are as follows: a four pound par­ cel post package for local-area del­ ivery will require 28 cents postage instead of 23 cents. The same parcel going all the way from the East Coast to the West Coast, or to Hawaii or Alas­ ka, will cost $1.02 rather than 87 cents. ICC found that the rates propos­ ed by the Postmaster General were necessary and reasonably adapted to insure the receipt of revenues from the service ade­ quate to pay the costs of the serv­ ice. \The proposed rates,\ the ICC report noted, \will promote the de­ velopment and maintenance of fourth class mail service adapted to the present needs and adaptable to the future needs of the people- of the United States, and will pro-' mote adequate, economical' and- ef­ ficient fourth-class postal service at reasonable and equitable rates.\ Postmaster General Summerfield) praised the ICC action, and- ex­ pressed gratification that the serious losses in postal revenues resulting from parcel post rate de­ ficiencies will now ,be corrected. The rates will be put into effect after Christmas, with no incon­ venience for Christmas mailers whose holiday budgej funds would otherwise be affected by a rise before Christmas.
