Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - October 1, 1956, Mason City, Iowa North Iowas Daily Newspaper Edited for the MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE u kjcujcHAKv TH NIWIFAril THAT MAKES ALU NORTH OWANS N I H HOME EDITION 0 I S United Press Full Lease Wirei Seven Cents Copy MASON CITY IOWA MONDAY OCTOBER T This Paper Consists of Two No 304 e Increases Tempo of Campaigning One Man Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL MALI GlobeGazette Editor BROADCAST SCHEDULE U City And the Truth Will Keep Us Free TF you should poll the newspaper people of the United States on the question Who in your opin ion has been the one most im in the news field within your lifetime my guess is that the name Kent Coop er would show up more often than any other For nearly 40 years starting even before he took over the title of General Manager his name was almost synonymous with As sociated Press or AP as it is more commonly called His influ ence in shaping the character and course of this greatest of news gathering agencies could scarcely be overestimated Since his retirement from his AP responsibility after 25 years as General Manager Kent Coop er has found a contented happi ness in Florida My last visit with him took place two years ago when AP managing editors con vened at Tampa To the delight of all who know him Kent Cooper or KC as he is usually called in affectionate regard by those who know him has found time to write a book Appropriately enough he titled it The Right to It was he who coined this significant ex pression Accurately Labeled Published by Farrar Straus and Cudahy the 335 page volume is described on its jacket as An exposition of the evils of news suppression and Thats precisely what it is And now Rational Newspaper Week Oct would seem to be an appropriate time to explore the contents of this significant work Nobody in history has ever been more deeply than Kent Cooper dedicated to the proposition And the truth will make you Nobody COULD be more dedi cated to that proposition Con versely nobody in history has ever resisted restraints on a free flow of news more vigorously than Kent Cooper Here let me dip into the book for three or four paragraphs which set the tone of the whole work in a remarkable way Though news is the spark that can weld the interests of mankind into a spirit of mutuality and has done so through the ages when not hindered by governmental ac tion its power in governmental hands has been misused fatefully to involve peoples in endless strife when what the peoples themselves really want is mutual friendship Nowhere is this more evident today than in the attitude of peo ples of countries that twice in a quarter of a century have been locked in struggles of death and devastation led to that fate by insidious governmental news sup pression and the governmental use of news to incite them to war Truth Is Best Weapon Everywhere Russia Eng land France Germany the list goes on the people yearn for peace And everywhere nu merically insignificant groups of individual opportunists who have gained political mastery of their nations plan threateningly to pick off loyal adherents each for their side The governmental instrument in this great struggle today is not bullets but news either unilateral tainted or untruthful in its pres entation often all A very considerable part of the Kent Cooper book is given over to an expose of propaganda war time propaganda and peacetime propaganda and to a demon stration of how it has been inimical to the welfare of the people What Mr Cooper asks at one point in his book is the purpose of propaganda Then he proceeds to answer his own question in these words The first function of propa ganda is to gain converts or pat ronage by teaching people that there is something for which they should yearn the acquiring of After 10 Years in Prison DOENITZ IS FREED BE RUN UP Nazi Grand Adm Karl Doenitr Hitters successor as fuehrer was released from Spandau Prison Monday and immediately went underground with the help of West Ger man police who clubbed newsmen and photographers Police in a rare display of brutality lashed out at newsmen with their clubs and smashed the cameras of photographers as signed to cover the release of the man who had just served a 10 year sentence for war crimes The Western Allies feared the refease of the man who served as fuehrer for eight days in the dying hours of World War II might prompt a smallscale Nazi revival They reasoned the less said about Doenitz the better and they resolved to crush press coverage of the release Doenitz 65 left the rambling red brick fortress at four min utes after midnight He had served every minute of his 10year sentence for war crimes that included a submarine campaign of terror on the high seas NEW JUSTICE
