Europe Looks

With Hope

To Cold War
PARIS, Dec. 27 (NEA) De-
spite the continued threat of So-
viet aggression, West Europeans
take a more optimistic view of
their prospects In 1953.
Lavish preparations are being
made in homes, restaurants and
amusement places to celebrate
the arrival of the New Year with
a gusto and on a scale unrivaled
since pre -war days.

President Gives

View In Farewell

Interview To UP

WASHINGTON, Dec. 27 (UP) President Truman
said today he was firmly convinced that Russia would
gladly accept an intensification of the war in the Far
East because it would give the Soviets .a freer hand in
western Europe.
The President made these statements during a "farn
well interview of almost one hour with United Press coe
respondent Merriman Smith, who has been covering the
White House beat since Mr. Truman was sworn in on
April 12, 1945.
Mr. Truman said: "We have tried to keep the pre-
seat battle line where it is north of the 38th4 Parallel
in Korea and hold the Communists without becoming
involved in an all-out war in the For East.
"I believe Russia would like us to carry on a war of
That magnitude, because then they would have more free-
dom of action in western Europe."

Fighter Pilots

i1II ll ,.

From Now On

The Air Force has begun train-
ing all its fighter pilots in jet
operations, looking- to the day
when its entire fighter command
rips through the air in planes
without propellers, a spokesman
said today.
The last cadet trained for sl.-
gle engine propeller dr)ien
planes won his wings Dec 19 at
Craig Air Force Base,, Aelma,
Ala. /'
Now all single-eifgne pilots
take their basic atid advanced
training in jets. /
However, tVe Air Force will
continue pip on-engine craft-
bombers and transports.
There I no need yet for jet
pilots i civilIan life although
the flInes--largest employers
of njh-milltary fliers-have told
thp nation's aircraft manufac-
turers what they, want in a jet-
bropelled transport plane. Its
outstanding feature would be its
ability to cross the United States
in about 4Q hours flying time.
However, the Defense Depart-
ment last spring to!d Congress it
opposes development of civil jet
airliners while such a move
might Interfere with military
aircraft production.
The transition of all military

Air Force use-the obsolescent
Of World War II vintage, it
flies as a fighter-bomber in Ko-
rea. But It is on the way out.
An Air Force spokesman said
all cadets take the same pre-
flight and primary courses,
which last about eight months.
Then they are divided, and those
who will specialize in single-en-
gine planes now train in Jets.
The principal jet trainer is the
T-33, a two-seated version of the
Shooting 'Str, first United
States combat Jet fighter.
The Air Force still needs pilots
trained for piston engines, how-
ever, because all its transports
are propeller-driven.
The only successful jet trans-
port, in fact, Is the British De
Havilland Comet.
While the Air Force is switch-
ing to jets in bombers, the tran-
siton will be slow It is equip-

has ordered the 0-52 heavy
bomber into production to re-
place eventually the propeller-

But tie backbone of U. S.
bomber strength-the B-31's, Bu-
perforts,. B. 5', and light Invad-
ers-are propeller driven, al-
though the B-3 h6 four Jes for

Referring to the fewsme wo ..'
have covered the' White House
over period of years, he said
"You have spent so much tim

a righy to some small privilege
before I leave the White House.
4Aked whether if he became .
President again he saw any poe- ,-i
4Ibllity of reducing taxes if the
Korean war continued at the
same pace. Mr. Truman replied -
with a flat "no."
He explained that whoever the
chief executive is present de-
fense plans cannot be "stabll-
ized" until 1955 and even though
such stabilization is achieved l
would bring about no immedi-
ate reduction of rearmamenb
Later the President was asked -
whether he saw any solution to '-
the now #talemated Korean con-
flict. Mr. Truman said the
were three possibilities:
"1) That the Communists ac-
cept the plan for an agreement*
on the basis of the just condi-
tion which we have formulated.
"2) We could give in on the Is-
sue of the prisoners of war la
our hands. turning them over to
the communalst to be assassin.
"3) We rould withdraw, allow-
ing the South Koreans to stnk.
The tone used by Mr. Tru-
man when he mentioned the
mee"nd and third possibilitUes
indicated.that be thought they
were absurd.
When Smith pointed out that
Mr. Truman had not mentioned
President-elect Eisenhower's trip

the Korean war, the Presdent
quickly answered that the intsub

uND, Dee. 27-(UP) oah Bud
of the Detroit Mions calls today's Natio
title clash in Cleveland "just another game.
it- irkir, whose Lions are slight (two point)
tes over the Browns, says-'I don't think this,
mionhip game,is any dif feren to the players
Sandy other important league game. And when it
Mntee to important games, brother, we've had 'em."-
Parker Says he isn't worried about the Lions
neing "up" for the game. The Detroit coach explains
--"the boys would like nothing better than to walk.
off the field. as champions-it means about $2,000
apiece extra for them'."
-Parker has given fullback Pat Harder'the job
'f stepping Cleveland end Len Ford-and that could
lead to fireworks. Harder, a terrific blocker, once
broke Ford's jaw while playing for the Chicago
Cardinals. They almost came to blows during an ex-
hibition but played it hard and straight in a regular
league game.
SCoach Paul Brown continues to have the crying
1wel. Brown told his players-"You have a chance
ajus hace. But it will take a super effort.
me must be at full strength-and how can you be
with key players banged up like oursv"
Detroit beat Cleveland, 17-6, in their regular

Blackout On Facts Public Should Know

"Hare you tried to find out anything lately
from your local officials?" asks The American Ma-
gazine in presenting a six-page story, in a recent
issue. If so, the magazine continues, you ve probab y
learned that secrecy in high places has suddenly
become a national habit. Today it's routine practice
to bar you and your neighbors from public meetings
and to make vital community decisions behind closed
door. This revealing article tells you. The American
Magazine observes, what some aroused citizens are
doing about officials who say:

Congress Itself has taken no-
tice of the situation. Recently It
set up a committee headed by
Senator Blalr Moody. Democrat,
of Michigan, "to knock away all
obstructions between the fact
and the people."
Freedom of information, un-
fortunately, is one of thog*
high-sounding but hackneyed
phrases which get bandied a-
round so much that they begin
to lose all meaning, like a bit
tune played too often on the
radio. ,
like lots of worth-while Ideas,
It often gets little more than lip
service until It touches our own
lives. So much has been said and
written about freedom of Infor-
mation that If anybody has ask-
ed me how I felt about It, ,1'd un-
doubtedly have replied, "Sure,
I'm for it." I would probably
have stifled a yawn, however.
But recently something hap-
gsned to some people I know in
sltlmore, Md., that got me
thinking. .
These friends of mine live on
the edge of a large park. For
some time It had been the prac-
tice of the city to lease one end
of It for commercial purposes.
This has always been a touchy
subject. But when a noisy car-
nival, complete With strip-tease
shows, settled down not long ago
for a 10-day visit, the temper of
my friends and their neighbors
exploded. There were protests,
phone call, house-to-house can-
vasses, mass meetings, and let-
ters to the papers. The carnival,
nevertheless, ground out Its full
honky-tonk course.
Although local residents could
do npthlng at the moment, they
eagerly awaited the next public
meeting of the city's planning
commission. At that time, they
knew, a proposal was to be con-
sidered for ending commercial
use of the park. They planned to
When the day came for the
planning commission to meet,
my friends received a shock. The
meeting was suddenly closed to
them! The public was barred
from attending, and so was the

public from a discussion of what
was obviously a public matter
concerning public funds and
public property, so outraged the
citizen of Baltimore that what
bad been a neighborhood mat-
ter now became a city-wide la-
bumps and grinds In Baltimore's
municipal park.
The lone-range one is that
those particular local officials
may think twice before they
attempt again to drop an iron
curtain around a meeting held
to discus public business.
People like you and me stop-
ped that particular attempt at
secrecy. Most persons agree that
such action on our part is the
only sure-fire way to stop any
similar threat.
The Baltimore Incident, rela-
tively insignificant by, itself,
nevertheless has Importance be-

the local level of government, al-

Although freedom of the press
is an imoortant cornerstone of
our Constitution, one of the first
targets for attack bv an official
conspiring to keep the public in

some reporters are Irresponsible
snoopers, hell-bent for a head-
line no matter how reckless, the
main body, by and large, are
working to keep the public in-

dig out news, to ask rude ques-
tions on occasion, to ait .in on
council meetings, or to examine
a oollce blotter.

Take what happened m Elk-
ton, Md.. for example. When I
passed through there the other
day I found this little town of
3,518 citlsehs on the Delaware
border still talking about what
went on a year ago last sum-
It began when the mayor per-
emptorily asked the representa-
tives of the two local newspapers
to leave during a routine public
meeting of the town board. His
reasons were that the reporters
had written about two Items dis-
cussed at the previous meeting
Items which the mayor had
asked them not to write about.
The newspapers had deliber-
ately decided not to comply
with the mayor's censorship.
One of the Items was a proposal
to Install radio service In po-
lite cars. The newspapers feared
It would be tabled and forgotten
(as It had been at a previous
meeting) unless brought to pub-
lic attention. The other itema
complaint lodged by eight citi-
zens against continued disorder
in a certain restaurant they
felt was legitimate news. In a
town of Elkton's1 size It Is news
when eight citizens get together
to protest anything.
For this reason the reporters
refused to leave the board meet-
ing The mayor refused to pro-
ceed with business In their pres-
ence, and added, "We want to
conduct our business in private.
"What do you mean by our
business?" asked the report-
ers. They knew that the only
information most people would
set about the meeting would
be from the newspapers, since
there were only half a dozen
men and women at the meet.
"Imean the town board's busi-
ness answered the mayor.
The reporters still refused to
leave, protesting that only In an
"executive session" could thev be
barred from the discussion. The
town board then promptly de-
clared Itself In "executive ses-
sion" and the reporters were
Next morning the town treas-
urer Issued a handout contain-
ing such information as the
board wanted the public to have.
"We've been nice to you fel-
lows, letting you sit in on our
meetings," the mayor told the
reporters when they demanded
an explanation.
Nice? Some of the people of
Elkton began to wonder why
it was "nice" for an elected re*
presentative of the people to
allow the people to Hnd out
what is being done by he ser*
rants of the people.
The situation blossomed into
a countv-wide case.. Toe indig-
nant citizenry compared the
board's attitude to Russia's. The
mayor was obviously surprised
to find the public so concerned
and said something about a
"tempest In a teapot." He Issued
a statement saving the town
had many problems and "the
DUblic need not be Informed on
the implications of these prob-
lems cntll their final sett
This statement did nothing to
calm the aroused citizens. 'Some-
thing is drastically wrong when
the town board has to do Its
business behind closed doors,"
said one... "We put these men
in office. We ought to know what
they are doing," said another...
'The town needs some provision
for sewage and an Incinerator,"
commented a third.
"If we cant have these things,
we ought at least to know where
our money is going." _\
Civic grocps protested. Radio
stations aired the protests.
Five weeks later the public
reaction had mushroomed to
such an extent that the town
hoard finally backed down.
The mayor threw their regular
meetings open to the pcblic.
Nevertheless, despite this re-
buff, a similar thing happened
In CentervUle, Md., not far a-
There, the president of the
board of town commissioners de-
cided not only to close the meet-
ing to the public, but also ruled
that none of the board's min-
utes could be made public with-
out the approval of a commis-
sioner. *
But next time the board met.
they deliberated for two hours
behind closed doors, and the
minute approved by the com-
missioners and given out to the
public read In their entirety as
"The regular meeting conven-
ed with all present. The minutes
of the previous meeting were
read and approved. There being
no further business, the meeting
was adjourned."
Obviously, the minutes were
no account of what really hap-
There was an immediate local
protest: "The citizens ,of this
town are led to believe that the
commissioners spent a couple of
hours in the town office doing
nothing for the good of the town
or just doing nothing at all!"
The president of the board of
commissioner retaliated: "We
were just trying to atop foolish
talk. We haven't got things
straightened out yet... Nothing
we're doing Is completed, so we
couldn't put anything In the
minutes until things are final."
So much publicity was given
the president's ruling that event-
ually he admitted the public to
the meetings, and allowed the
minutes to be published.
Even if I bad not been read-
ing about similar Incidents on

from what Is ) rightly public
I decided, however, to take a
.wing around a few more parts
of the country to see for myself
what was happening elsewhere.
I didn't have far to go. Here
are a few random examples o
what I found:
In Titusville, Pa., town offi-
cials, irked by widespread local
criticism of a water-rate In-
ciense, drew up a plan to stop
publication of all Information a-
bou* city affairs unless that In-
formation was first censored by
the mayor or the city council.
Public Indignation finally forced
t.* officials to drop the plan.
in Norwich. Conn., I found
that the police had placed a
tight gag on all police news-
nonnally public Information -
when a stolen automobile, which
the police had failed to find, was
recovered as a result of a news
stoiy. The people of Norwich oro-
tcsted. and the gag was removed.
In Portage, Wls., a gag on all
police and traffic news was end-
ed in a tragic way. The local pa-
per had exposed deplorable con-
ditions at the city dog pound,
and the article so enraged offi-
cials that thev retaliated with a
news blackout. One day a little
girl was struck down by an auto
on a Portage street. When no
Information about the accident
was forthcoming, the newspaper
printed a brief story and Includ-
ed the fact that the police had
refused to supply any lnforma-
tlon about the accident. The
oubllc reaction was so Immediate
that the censorship was ended.
In Oreen Bay, Wls., the school
boaid has declared Itself opposed
to open meetings (which are
still open In most communities'
because it feels the public will
"misunderstand" their actions If
they are made public. Last year.
the school superintendent refus-
ed to give out information about
a new bus route, because, he said
"Barents will complain if they
know the route."
In Brown County, of the same
state, the school superintendent
in spite of the fact that the
schools are supported by the tax-
nayers' moneyrefused to give
out Information about the school
committee's consolidation plan,
because, he said, "It would get
everybody confused,"
In LaCrosse, Wls., the local pa-
per not long ago discovered that
the city's water supply had been
condemned by the U.S. Health
Service back In 1934 for having a
high bacterial oount. A former
city engineer 'and some mem-
bers of the city council had
known about the existence of the
a court order before the city au-
thorities would open up records
of building permits. The court
ruled that the records should be
made public "as a check: on
cheap construction."
In Tampa. FUv, several years
ago,' the Federal Housing Au-
thority flatly refused to release
any information about FHA proj-
ects. But when local citizens
protested the censorship, the
FHA finally admitted that their
projects, supported by the tax-
oarers' funds, do constitute a
public record.
The American Newspaper pub-
lishers Association, a group of
the nation's leading newspapers,
as become so concerned about
growing censorship of nonmllita-
ry news, that members made it
the theme of their annual meet-
In this year. In addition, thev
preuared a long list' of cases in
which local politicians have a-
dopted a "public-be-damned" at-
titude since the war. The list al-
ready Includes towns In 34 statPS

The International Press Ins-
titute, meeting in Switzerland
last spring, was primarily con-
cerned with the growing ten-
dency to suppress Information
in countries that have had a
strong tradition of freedom of
expression. The delegates to
the convention leveled their
fire at a specific target: the
government public relations
officer. In one form or another,
he has become, they declared,
a symbol of official conceal-
ment of facts from the public.
ter off Korea, was captured by
the U. S. Navy, a fact which was
known to the North Koreans.
The plane was brought to the
T.i. S. for extensive tests and
examination. The results of
that examination have been
classified "secret" secret, ap-
parently, from the Russians
who manufactured the plane.
Such an attitude has led many
to suspect that our own Air
Force may want to conceal
from the American people the
fact that Russian engineers
know how to build a Jet en-
gine without the scarce alloys
which the Air Force has Insist-
ed it must have.
When the President issued
his executive order last year
authorizing the withholding of
news by civilian departments
of the Government, it was
said to be the first civilian
censorship in the history
of modern America.
The first federal agency, In-
cidentally, to Invoke the Presi-
dential order was the Office of

curity officer Instructed OP8

. His own paper, he said, had
received complaints from the
board of city commissioners
that the Gazette'-s reporters
were being unfair to the board,
passing up favorable items and
reporting unfavorable ones. Mr.
Jackson quietly attended three
board meetings himself and next
day read the articles written
by his reporters. He found the
board's charges correct. The re-
porters were not misquoting;
they were simply not giving
