Government should t try to gag press there is a school of thought which argues that a newspaper should never accept a Story from a person whose reputation May be less than jilt edged in certain quarters. We beg to differ. It is the newspapers Job to report the facts. Many facts which Are reported every Day Are facts which Are unpleasant to someone. This is regretted by Many people. Rut it is not the newspaper which makes the facts it is the newspaper which reports them. In ancient times it was customary for tyrants to slay the bearer of bail news. Apparently there exists in modern times a tendency on the part of certain persons in High office to want to punish a newspaper because the facts it reports Are unpleasant to the Holder of Public office. Were newspapers to be gagged and restrained from printing the unpleasant truths which do exist the Public would be kept in the dark on Many matters of vital concern to them. V0 a the Are reminded of an Exchange of views which occurred Back in 1887 when lord Creighton argued with lord Acton that the Benefit of the doubt should always be granted persons in Power. It was Creighton a position that persons in positions of Power such As Pope and Kings and presumably judges and governors should be judged in a less harsh manner than was reserved for the rabble. If for example. An instance of evil doing could be traced to a High dignitary in Church or state it would be Wise and prudent to Overlook the evil if it were performed by such personage. Lord Acton took the opposite View and we very much share lord Acton a opinion. In a letter to Creighton among other things he said a i cannot accept your Canon that we Are to judge Pope and King unlike other men. With a favourable presumption that they did no wrong. If there is any presumption it is the other Way against holders of Power increasing is the Power increases. Tower tends to corrupt and absolute Power tends to corrupt absolutely a it is a matter of history that persons in positions of Power have facilities at their disposal to stifle both inquiry and complaint. Indeed the growth of tyranny is always in an inverse ratio to the growth of an uncontrolled and free press. It May have been this thought which at one time prompted Abraham Lincoln to say a if there is anything that is the duty of the whole people never to entrust to any hands but their own that thing is the preservation and perpetuity of their own liberties and institutions. I fear Vou do not fully comprehend the danger of abridging the liberties of the people. A government had better go to the very extreme of toleration than to do aught that could be construed into an interference with or to jeopardy in Arv degree the common rights of the and most assuredly this thought must have been uppermost in the mind of Thomas Jefferson when he wrote a the basis of our governments being the opinion of the people the very first object should he to keep that right and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government 1 should not hesitate a moment to prefer the amp amp amp ret at this unhappy juncture we find government m the position of seeking to stifle and control the press. To Force it into either secrecy r silence and failing so to do to hold its reporters in contempt. A newspaper s Job in the interest of Freedom of the press is to report the truth. It does not Geek to turn Down tips because it finds the tipster unlisted in the Blue Bonk. It must act freely and without fear even in the face of hostile administrations and hostile judges. This newspaper will continue to publish the truth wherever it can find it. It will also continue to Check the truth against the Public record and will bring to the sight of the Public pertinent items it finds there even when such actions Are disturbing or displeasing to some.

Ike Swai left demos a headache by Peter Edson Washington a Nea a the Eisenhower administration s last will and testament to it heir in t h e Kennedy administration is contained in the retiring presidents final economic report to Congress. Chapter three is entitled Quot policies for the its a Good peacetime formula for economic growth says he. Raymond j. Saulnier chairman of the Eisenhower Council of economic advisers who prepared the report. He Hopes the new administration will give it heed though he wont flatly predict trouble for them if they done to. Or. Walter w. Heller who will succeed Saulnier has been in to see him and talk about How to run the Council. They have not discussed the Eisenhower report. But the general Assumption is that the new Bunch of economic doctor wont agree with either diagnosis or cure for what ails business today. A if that a the Case it 1 just a Well to know what Medicine the Kennedy economists pour Down the Drain. There seems to be agreement on the symptoms. The growth rate should be higher idleness unemployment lower. Sauline Points out that since 1935 the Eisenhower administration has had before Congress proposal a for Relief i depressed areas measures to stimulate the housing Industry Aid to education extended unemployment insurance coverage and similar correctives. Along with these specifics the Eisenhower administration has to it rest riled general treatment to hold prices stable curb inflation keep the Dollar sound and. Above everything Elsp keep Federal government interference with the patient s Normal recovery at an absolute minimum. These Are the things the last three democratic controlled congresses have refused to agree on. Thev have wanted More government dosing nursing and pampering of the patient. If there had been just a Little Compromise Between the executive and legislative branches of government on this instead of political Bullhead Edness on both sides something might have been done instead of nothing. This is really the Hig policy for the future that the Kennedy administration might pay More attention to with the roles of the president and the Congress reversed if Kennedy and his economic specialists propose recession cures that the conservative old family a a docs in Congress can to go along with the two might accommodate their View so As to help the Long suffering Economy instead of leaving it to father time. Mother nature and its own devices for correction. Saulnier and i colleagues Are of the opinion that the present business weakness will be of Short duration. A i would expect resumption of growth will occur Early in the he save. The decline of last november and december he Calls a cyclical movement. There is nothing in this situation which ordains further change in downward direction. A this is where the Kennedy administration seems to differ. Some of its practitioners think this is a real depression the country is in and that it is going to get worse. Drastic surgery is recommended to remove High unemployment trends. Some Kennedy adviser think the remedy is a transfusion of greater government expenditures to make More fobs and put More Penov hark to work. The approach of the Eisenhower advisers is that such a stimulus would not last. It is considered artificial respiration. The patient May suffer a relapse when it a discontinued or it could result in Price increase and inflation which Are considered worse than the original malady. There is Only one Point on which the two schools of economic Medicine men seem to he in agreement Saulnier in discussing the Eisenhower report puts in this Way a this Bunche a meaning the Kennedy administration a Quot would like to see greater use of our productive he along with that. Fire Rhody can go along with that because business conditions. No matter How Good Ara never Good enough. George e. Sokolsky they can to Dodge it have to face reality every Day i get a letter from some person who lives in 1930 or thereabouts and refuses to face the very simple and unpleasant fact of 1961. Such persons remind me of those Brilliant mind in Wall Street in 1929 who believing that the sky is the limit committed suicide when the sky fell Down on them. The first problem that president Kennedy and this nation face is the Dollar and our loss of Gold. This is More important than any other question because As our Dollar loses in value everything we do or try to do goes awry. For instance the Cost of defense rises As the value of the Dollar goes Down and the Cost of keeping troop and bases goes up beyond our capacity to find the funds particularly if our so called allies continue to build their Gold reserves at our expense. Only t h e British have recognized the seriousness of this problem and have come through it with Devotion and purpose. Italy West Germany and Japan have been pounding our Gold Reserve greedily. It is questionable As to whether what they have done will ultimately rebound to their Benefit. A 1 the Kennedy administration faces the Dollar As the most urgent problem although it is understandable that Congress will not consider it so because americans have had no experience with inadequate currency since the War Between the states and therefore cannot get away from the simplicity that a Dollar is 100 cents 20 Nickles or 10 dimes. But a Ven on that formula what is Nickel Worth in this respect the Kennedy administration starts where the Hoover administration started. Hoover took office on March 4, 1929 the Stock Market collapse occurred in october 1929. Actually such a debacle took a Long time in the making. The worldwide financial difficulties of that Era were first apparent in 1921 and the first country to he hit was Japan. The Chain of economic disturbances moved from country to country with dramatic impetus and finally hit the United states. The London economic conference was called in 1933 to Deal with the question of Money and Gold and to set if possible a Universal Price for Gold. Roosevelt and Henry Morgenthau jr., torpedoed the conference and that was the end of economic sanity for Europe. A a a a today president Kennedy is faced by a similar situation. He walked in on an inflation which is Sharp and moving rapidly his Secretary of the Treasury Douglas Dillon must stick his Finger in the Dike to keep our Gold from continuing to flow out of the country. He will have to take a plea a ant measures to keep our Gold reserves sufficient to cover our Dollar to keep the value of our Dollar up in the world and to keep our people at work so that the social and financial problems of unemployment do not complicate the american Economy at the beginning of a new administration. Many who regard themselves As conservatives do not recognize the seriousness of this particular problem. They keep harping on issues which Are not urgent and ignore the frightening possibility that the capitalist system could collapse in this country with tha collapse of the Dollar. One listens to All sorts of panaceas from devaluation to taking the Gold Reserve off dollars but none of the proposed suggestions mean any. Thing of significance. The Treasury must find a solution to t h e problem of the seeping Gold and the debasing Dollar within tha framework of the american econ omy without increasing unemployment. A a this is no child a game it takes absolute expert knowledge and enormous imagination. There Are in the United states men whose business is Gold who watch every fluctuation in Price. In Quantity in the movement of Gold who can Tell instantly where every Pound of Gold is situated who watch every operation in this Field. Douglas Dillon know where these men Are. Who they Are what they do. Because of his experience he undoubtedly knows the British dutch and South african operators As Well As the americans. To my knowledge at least one of the largest american Gold operator and an expert in the Field is a Friend and neighbor of his in new Jersey. It is such practical men who ought to be called in to consider a solution of this problem a and immediately. Knprr Ortii if. Kutni feature so trate Lor Fulton Lewis or. The real Goldwater outlines philosophy the political enemies of Barry Goldwater he has few if any. Personal foes use every occasion to paint him As a Man consumed with anti labor Bias a a a reactionary who would help a malevolent management grind the rank and file worker to helpless dust for those who know the Arizona senator this is arrant nonsense but the Liberal makers of Public images will continue their Job on Gold water for partisan political motives. The real Goldwater and his actual philosophy of labor Are Best revealed by his new format of proposed labor legislation which he plan to translate into legislative reality Barry Goldwater a labor program is made up of five principles expressly designed to make a truly free Man of the rank and file Union member. Buttressing these is i expressed conviction that truly voluntary collective bargaining is a sure guaranty of a democratic society with the right to strike As a Basic civil Liberty. Here in Brief Are senator Goldwater five basics which together constitute a new Magna Carta for labor Union members. A a item prohibit policies by which unions exclude qualified workers from membership and thereby often deny them jobs. On the one hand says Goldwater a untold numbers of completely qualified workers Are kept out of unions they want to join. Yet paradoxically under present Law. Unions enjoy the a precious privilege of exclusive representation of All the workers in the bargaining unit Union and non Union alike. Union exclusionary practices would has a a a a a prohibited by Goldwater As a obnoxious and completely item end the indiscriminate use of Union funds for political purposes. This practice is one of the most a Brazen examples of coercion in american society. Millions of workers Are compelled to contribute through their due to candidates parties and programs favored by the labor Bosses but opposed by the members them selves. Item provide additional Safe guards against violence in labor dispute and restore Law and order in that important area of National life violence Force intimidation sabotage and even bombings Are becoming an almost everyday occurrence wherever there Are picket line the Lacity of local Law enforcement is due to a Quot political Affinity Between the local politicians and the Union Bosses who Reward them periodically at the voting polls. These acan Dalou local situations Are now so out of hand As to require correction by Federal Law. Item strengthen the Bill of right provisions of the Landrum Griffin act. The labor rackets hearings dramatized the need for Federal regulation of unions in order to eliminate crime and corruption. Unhappily the Landrum Griffin act does not solve the problem since it leaves it to the individual member to bring private suit against crooked Union leaders. In theory this May seem sufficient. But in practice the average Union member is too strapped for funds to beat the Legal costs himself. And besides he fears the labor Goon too much to Hail his Union Leader into court. Senator Goldwater will propose amendments to Landrum Griffin whereby the government will be charged with the responsibility for bringing action the Union member item permit a secret Ink ballot to he conducted by the National i Bor relation Board up on petition of 30 percent of the employers involved As of now there is no Law requiring a strike vote and where Union constitutions do require a majority strike vote the voting itself is often conducted under conditions where the employees opposed to a s strike fear to show their True sentiments. Senator Goldwater a solution is a simple As it is effective.
