I US pm SUB Iuci How much censorship is needed CENSORSHIP IS A BAD sounding word so far as newspaper editors are con cerned It was so in April when President Kennedy suggested it in a talk before the American Newspaper Publishers Associa tion in New York it was so last month when a couple of spokes men forhis administration talked about censorship in Dal las Texas at the annual Asso ciated Press managing editors convention It was the abortive invasion effort in Cuba that prompted the Presidents suggestion of a voluntary censorship Against his intimation that the Cubans had acquired secret informa tion from our press there was this version of the matter by James Scotty Reston of the New York Times Castro had his agents in the refugee recruiting and training camps The Cuban radio was broadcasting all about these camps and the U S govern ments part in them weeks be fore they were discussed in the American press In fact Reston added the only people who knew very little about what was happen ing back in the early planning stages of the exercise were the American people A few days after that eight distinguished journalists headed by Felix R McKnight of the Dallas TimesHerald president of the American Society of Newspaper Editors and Mark Ferree of the ScrippSrHoward newspapers president of the American Newspaper Publish ers met with the President in Washington for an amplification of his censorship views In the formal statement issu ing from that conference there appeared these words The President assured our group the administration intends to continue its policy of free access to the news and that no form of restriction is contem plated or suggested Late in the summer the sub ject was revived by Carl T Rouam former reporter on so cial problems for the Minne apolis Star and Tribune now deputy assistant secretary of state for public affairs In a talk at New York University he had charged rather bluntly that newspapers are less interested in considerations of national se curity than they are in making a buck Here then was the back ground when the AP editors got together last month to take soundings on the voluntary cen sorship issue as of now Speaking for the Administra tion were Rowan and Arthur J Sylvester longtime Washington correspondent for the Newark N J News now assistant sec retary of defense for public af fairs For the newspapers Felix McKnight was on hand as one of our Dallas hosts and as presi dent of the American Society of Newspaper Flanking him was Ciark Molienhoff Iowa born and Iowa educated Wash ington correspondent for the Cowles publications Sylvesters criticisms were more directed at carelessness with than at breaches in the national iccurity I look back he observed with a rather queasy feeling thinking to myself my God was I equally guilty McKnight the Dallas editor took the position that the press has in a time of national crisis precisely the same responsibil ity as at all other times 1 Remain free 2 Report truthfully which means with critical not cynical attitudes at all times 3 Get information which can be substantiated and which can be disseminated lo the American people most effective voluntary controls he insisted may op Turn to Page 2 Eichmann guilty faces death penalty JERUSALEM con JERUSALEM con victed Adolf Eichmann of unsur passed crimes against the Jews and said his rolein the Nazi

Eichmann is tried But the court will not an nounce sentence until the end of the week or the beginning of next week Regarding Eichmanns com plaint that he was kidnaped the court described at length a case in Vermont in 1935 in which a man complained he was seized in Canada and brought to justice in the United States The Vermont Supreme Court ruled that the method of bringing the man there was unimportant That in effect 3 trace 31 20 75 was what the Israeli tribunal de cided in Eichmanns case Eichmann had argued that he was only an underling who car ried out orders But the court said The laws of humanity are binding on individuals The guilt of Germany as astate does not detract one iota from the personal responsibility of the accused He was tried under I s r a e Is Nazi and Nazi collaborators law of 1950 which provides death as the maximum penalty The death penalty never has been invoked The packed courtroom was deathly silent as the verdict of guilty was pronounced Many of
