        Nixon, As Presidential Strategist, Justifies His Postal Reorganization As Not Pro-Union in a Letter to IkeÕs Conservative Brother

      - Nixon, As Presidential Strategist, Justifies His Postal Reorganization As Not Pro-Union in a Letter to IkeÕs Conservative Brother.In May 1969, four months after he became president, Richard Nixon asked Congress to pass a postal reform act calling for removal of the Postmaster General from the Cabinet and creation of a self-supporting postal corporation wholly owned by the federal government. No action was taken on the issue until March 1970 when there was an illegal postal workers strike called in response to the proposal and Nixon sent in troops and the National Guard to help deliver the mail. After the strike was settled in April, the administration introduced the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 to abolish the United States Post Office Department and creat the United States Postal Service, a corporation-like independent agency with an official monopoly on the delivery of mail in the United States. Nixon signed the law on August 12, 1970. In the months leading up to passage, there were many voices raised in opposition. From the left, union leaders feared that the new corporation would be more resistant to working with them to meet workerÕs negotiating demands. From the right, critics worried that the new private corporation would have to recognize a postal labor union. This concern seemed to gain currency when the Postal Service was placed under the the Taft-Hartley Act, a law that greatly restricts the activities and power of labor unions but recognizes their rights to organize and strike. One of those most concerned about this was Edgar Eisenhower, brother of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and a very conservative Republican. He wrote Nixon with his concern that this was pro-union legislation, and Nixon was quick to try and assure him it was not. The Eisenhower and Nixon families had by then been united by the marriage of David Eisenhower and Julie Nixon, and the long-term acquaintenceship between Edgar and Nixon, and EdgarÕs influence, were probably all factors in Nixon doing something quite unusual as president - personally answering correspondence in what are clearly his own words, complete with underlinings and a first-name signature. We do not recall seeing that before.Typed Letter Signed on White House letterhead, Washington, June 3, 1970, to Edgar Eisenhower. Ò.Let me assure you that the postal reform bill proposed by the Administration would not reqiure compulsory unionism. We have proposed, as one phase of a broad plan for dealing with the unique problems faced by the Post Office Department, that postal labor-management relations be governed by the same laws that apply in the private sector - including the Taft-Hartley and Landrum-Griffin Acts - except that strikes by postal employees would continue to be illiegal, and machinery would be provided to permit resolution of negotiating impasses without resort to strikes. It obviously is not feasible to use the postal reform legislation as a vehicle for reforming the Taft-Hartley Act. Accordingly, one consequence of putting the Postal Service under Taft-Hartley would be that postal management - like management in the private sector - might have to bargain over union shop arrangements in states other than those having right-to-work laws. (Whether the Postal Service would ever agree to a union shop arrangement is another question entirely.) Our guiding principle has been that the Postal Service should be reorganized in a way that would permit it to be managed as effectively as a well-run private business. This entails a resort to the terms of the Taft-Hartley Act, but it certainly does not entail a statutory imposition of compulsory unionism. The need for workable postal reform legislation is urgent. It would be most unfortunate, in my opinion, if passage of an acceptable postal reform bill were delayed by a controversy as to whether the National Labor Relations Act should outlaw the union shop.ÓThis letter gives us a rare glimpse of Nixon as strategist during his presid [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Okinawa, Okinawa, Okinawa

      Tokyo: Shaken (1969) - First Edition. Oblong quarto. Tomatsu's most political book, with the famous, searing image of a missile launching sandwiched between graphic slogans demanding the end to American occupation of the island. Like most of Tomatsu's books, Okinawa is difficult to categorize. It borrows stylistically from the Provoke school while never losing its focus as a social documentary, yet it would be overly simplistic to lump it in with other Japanese protest books, even those about Okinawa. (Auer 503). Light crease to the bottom edge of the front cover, a small internal crease near the spine heel, three small tape shadows on he inner front cover, still close to near fine in photo-illustrated wrappers.

Embracing the aspects of psychology, society, and human emotion on an alien world, The Left Hand of Darkness stands as a landmark achievement in the annals of intellectual science fiction.

        A Collection of 81 Different 1960s Hippie Photographs

      A collection of mostly counterculture related photographs circa 1969 by a little-known young Baltimore photographer. A few are signed with a Baltimore address. 81 prints. All but one are in black and white. A small crease to the corner of one image, a few small spots on another, and light foxing on a few of the cardboard mounts, but the condition is generally fine. The images break down into the following groups: 1. Thirty-seven large images mounted on oversize cardboard prepared for an exhibition. Subjects include nude hippie chicks (some with body paint), an Allen Ginsberg poetry reading, bikers, a couple of variations on a cemetery, and an outdoor concert (possibly Woodstock); 2. Thirteen larger unmounted images, subjects include nude hippie chicks (more with body paint), pot smokers, and rock and roll and bluegrass bands; 3. Thirteen smaller images mounted on cardboard for exhibition, all of Frank Zappa and his band; and 4. Eighteen smaller images, unmounted, subjects include nude hippie chicks (still more with body paint: apparently there was a sale), rock bands, and Sikhs. Anecdotally, we understand that the photographer later decided to adopt a Sikh philosophy and lifestyle. Not overly distinguished as fine art photography, but a reasonably serious, interesting, and pleasingly typical collection of photographs devoted overwhelmingly to the hippie era. .
