B \ Pii ii. Newsom Chi foreign a errs Naly to in Spain on april 9 of this year a new Law went into effect easing for the first time strict government control of the press. It had been in the making since 1962 when Generalissimo Francisco Franco Shook up his government with an accent on youth and launched upon a program to end too years of Spanish isolation from the rest of Europe and at Home to begin a cautious easing of restrictions which had governed Spanish life since the end of the civil War. It was not press Freedom As it is known in the United states and elsewhere for it still required that newspapers books and magazines be submitted to the ministry of information before publication. It also provided severe punishment for violation of a vague set of limitations ranging from respect for a a truth to maintenance of internal Public order. Cautious reaction after nearly 30 years of editorial silence it was understandable that most Spanish editors reacted cautiously. For example few Spanish newspapers reported that in Barcelona last month police used their clubs on militant Young roman Catholic priests protesting the alleged mistreatment of an imprisoned student Leader. One that did was the weekly newspaper Signo published by the youth Council of the Spanish Catholic action. Over the weekend police confiscated copies of Signo acting on a court order presumably obtained under the a internal order clause of the new press Law. A court now will decide whether copies of the newspaper May be distributed. Subsequent events will determine just How much press Freedom the government intends to permit. Sweeping change change is sweeping Spain and it has brought into play two opposing forces a Between those who lived through the civil War and those 30 and under to whom the War is scarcely a memory Between a government which seems honestly Bent on loosening controls without losing control and Young militants impatient with the slow Pace of evolution. Among Young priests fired up by the liberalization of the ecumenical Council it is a revolt against a conservative Hierarchy reluctant to change. Among students it is a demand for academic freedoms. Added to tills is a political ferment arising from a National referendum expected within coming months to establish a succession to the 73-Yearold Franco. And Here there also Are deep differences. Franco himself is said to favor restoration of the monarchy with Prince Juan Carlos his Choice to assume the throne. The 1947 succession Law commits Spain to a monarchy and provides that Franco shall be succeeded by a person of a Royal the falange Spain s Only Legal political party opposes the monarchy and seeks to continue an authoritarian regime. But Many younger spaniards would prefer a Republic and a two party political system.
