Top Postal Service official tapped for postmaster general

Paul N. Carlin, a top Postal Service regional official, will become postmaster general on Jan. 1, the independent agency's board chairman announced Wednesday. He will succeed the retiring William F. Bolger, who has held the $82, 900-a-year job since March 1978.

Mr. Carlin beat out the man pushed by the White House for the job, Edward J. Rollins, who had headed President Reagan's relection campaign.
