changed to Drawer New Texas Mike Royko Lets lighten up on war coverage By MIKE ROYKO Newt a congressional has put his finger on a poten tially serious morale problem that could hamper the war with The latest polls show that most Americans are in a hard nosed Maybe not as euphoric as they were a week or two But the polls say the vast majority of us are itching for our troops to storm in there in the inspiring words of our commander in kick some But Gingrich says that when we start there can be no dillydal shillyshallying or Thats because hes worried about the American peoples capacity to accept violence on television at the levels wed see in ground He has a Once the land war with limbs flying and young people it wont be the kind of thing youd want to watch while chewing your So Gingrich is concerned that as more humanremains pouches thats what the military now calls body bags are the publics zest for the war will There will be few er giddy people on waving little flags and shouting Were behind the boys over so lets get it over with wheee The problems is that theres no guarantee that we can get it over with Im sure this isnt news to war enthusiasts who are but Sad dam Hussein has a

violence on By why should they see it on TV The military already has demo strated that its very skillful at filter ing And everybody knows that most people think reporters should clam up and not stick their noses into how the war is being So the answer is that when the ground war the news media especially television should not be permitted to show anything that could be dishearten ing or Im not calling for complete cen After I have loyalty to my own But in a war or a as it is more accurately known there are other newsworthy events besides death and Besides bringing us the daily mili tary which are wonderfully the TV crews could show us how things are going in the See Page 5 A Lamar Smith Districts residents pivotal to war effort By LAMAR SMITH Congressman As the first aircraft to
