Full Wlret HOMEV EDITION that makes all North lowans CITY IOWA MONDAY SEPTEMBER JO 1962 neighbors UOc a Paper of Two No 182 One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGaxetfe Editor

all too manj governmental workers at al levels Nowhere is it more prev alent or more inimical to the public welfare than in Washing ton D C That is the central theme o a book by an lowan Clark Mollenhoff of the Cowles Publi cations just off the Doubleday Co Press Webster City and Burnside Iowa both have their claims on him along with Drake University and Des Moines The title appropriately enough is Washington Cover Up Its a story produced by the kind of reportorial digging which has brought the author a Pulitzer Prize along with jus about every other recognition that can be bestowed on Washington reporter by his fel lows and by the public While freely granting that there are situations and sub jects which warrant the tight est kind of with respect to weapons and national former lowan charges that lcunlimited secrecy has been employed to hide incompetence laxity bungling and outright frauds in the Defense Department in the foreign aid program and in doz ens of other areas volume too is a profound to the evil of truthsuppression stated in the opening chapter ir this hardhitting1 paragraph It is well to remember that every withholding of govern business from the pub lic is an encroachment upon the democratic principle that government officials are ac countable to the people It fol lows that citizens should re gard all governmental se crecy with some suspicion as an encroachment on their right to know I cant think of a better way to set the tone for this review than to let the author Clark Mollenhoff amplify the point of view enunciated in the previous paragraph The American citizen should reject all arbitrary claims to secrecy by thebureaucracy as sharply as he would reject any claims tp a right of the execu tive branch to bypass Congress in levying taxes A wise citizen should be as outraged at arbitrary secrecy as he would at arbitrary im prisonment Logically he should insist on the same safeguards against arbitrary secrecy that he would against unjustified ar rest or taxation The publics right to know is that basic Unfortunately the lowan added there is a general ten dency to regard government secrecy as only a problem for the newspapers And even with in the newspaper profession there is a tendency to ignore government secrecy until it in terferes with a story the indi vidual reporter or editor wants to develop I anj not interested in plead ing for any special right of ac cess to government information for newspapers or reporters Hollenhoff vital as their function is newspapers magazines television and radio for the most part merely pro vide an orderly process for dis seminating information about government to the people who do not have the time money or technical facility to acquire for themselves In short Clark Mollenhoff casts himself in the role ofrep resentative of the American public when he often he the musty records where information of vital in terest to taxpayers is concealed After having thus established the rational foundation of his approach this lowan turns his torian In support of his key VIEWS CHURCH RUINS Former baseball star Jackie Robinson hand on looks over ruins of Mt Mary Bap

Peiping broadcast in Eng lish late Sunday was brief It said A USmade U2 high altitude reconnaissance plane of the Chiang Kaishek gang was shot down this morning by an air force unit of the Chinese

Kennedys request foi standby authority to call up 150 000 military reservists if needed to meet cold war emergencies while Congress is out of session The swift action came shortly after Defense Secretary Robcr S McNamara urged the com mittee to approve the requestec authority to provide a flexibil ity of response which could b crucial if world crises eruptec suddenly The measure also would allov Kennedy to extend enlistment of servicemen through next Feb 28 if necessary McNamara said the regular US military forces are strong today and their strength contin ues to improve The authority for a limited callup of Reserves however would provide us with a flexibility of response which could be cru cial if the international situation deteriorates suddenly and specific crises occur he said He said he hoped sincerely it would not be necessary to use the stand by authority to call up 150 000 Reserves while Congress is out of session But he said the resolutions ap proval would permit a prompt re sponse to any crisis short of measures which would require a declaration of a national emergen action which would involve mplications of a most serious nature President Kennedy has made crystal clear his recognition of the threats with which we are faced and the pplicy of this government not to allow the export of Com munist aggressive purposes by Torce in this hemisphere or in oth er areas of the world Mc Namara said The secretary said the United States at any time may face a challenge requiring an immediate and effective response and that the enactment of the resolution would constitute an endorsement by the American people of our determination to make that re sponse and provide us with the means to do so McNamara said the callup of Reserves during a Berlin crisis ast year provided tangible evi dence of this countrys response when our vital security interests are involved Since that time he said the Army has added five combat di visions to bring its strength to 16 he
