Presidents between their can didacy and their occupancy of the White House In the cam paign they are enthusiastically and unreservedly for a free press After election they begin to hedge And by they I mean all of them In my own contacts with poli tics on the national dimension Ive seen this aboutface in just about every one of our Chief Executives since Woodrow Wil son So that there will be neith appearance nor the fact of partisanship in my approach to the subject let me make it clear at the outset that the dif ference between promise and performance in President John F Kennedy is no greater than it was in Dwight D Eisen hower President Eisenhower invoked policy censorship by executive order despite his campaign promise that he would revoke the order He was referring to a Truman directive that no speech release or other public statement concerning military policy be released un til it had been cleared by the Defense Department This was extended to cover the State De partment Instead of condemn ing Ike copied During the Cuban crisis the question came to a head again when President Kennedy pointed out that during the time of tension Administration spokesmen will generate or ma nipulate news to speak as one for the country As tensions ease he added a more normal accesstonews relationship will be permitted This generalization seemed to be spelled out by Arthur Sylves ter Assistant secretary for pub lic affairs in the Defense De partment in this statement In the kind of world we live in the generation of news by actions taken by the govern ment becomes one weapon in a strained situation As if to make certain that he meant what he said when he characterized news releases as a possible weapon Sylvester former New Jersey newspaper man told a professional journal ism fraternity audience in New York City that prevarication was justifiable when expedient His words I think the inherent right the government to lie to save itself when faced with nuclear disaster is basic Then came the crowning blow According to the UPI report on the Sylvester talk he asked that he be identified as a member of Sigma Delta Chi the frater nity in question Later he began squirming The results of such news weaponry he explained jus tify the methods but he said that such a policy means dis tortion deception or manipula tion of news by the military Tho marked resemblance however between this stand and that taken by dictators Hit ler Mussolini Stalin Khrush chev Tojo and all the rest was such as to draw this wire to Sylvester from Lee Hills of to 2 Please Monday 15 planes searched the area between Fort Pierce and Norfolk Va where the Sulphur Queen was scheduled to arrive last Thursday A report from one aircraft of a yellowish substance in the ocean about 190 miles east of St Augustine Fla sent a small Navy ship the USS Hoist to the scene The Hoist reported the yellow substance was floating seaweed The Coast Guard reported Sun day it is investigating the pos sibility that the Sulphur Queen is in Cuba A spokesman said that pos then said the ship might have drifted into Cuban waters Other Coast Guard sources said the Swiss Embassy in Havana on a request from the US State Department presumably is try ing to check out speculation that the Marine Transport Lines tanker is in Cuba The Sulphur Queen left Beau mont Tex Feb 2 Its course through the Gulf of Mexico would not have been too far from Cuban waters Although her route would have taken her through regular sea lanes no other vessel definitely has reported sighting her the probe concerned the sibility of a

For the Democratic chairman of the House Education and La bor Committee will have to face the wrath of his committee col leagues the scorn of a senator and the displeasure of the admin istration Powell 53 who is equally at home in the pulpit of the Negro Baptist church he heads in New York City the political clubs of Harlem and the plush night clubs of two continents has managed to outrage the sensibilities of an im pressive number of people in the past A combination of charm gall and pride has enabled him to act as if he couldnt even hear their angry cries Now that he has stirred up so many antagonists at once these traits may not be enough to keep out the rising din of criticism The soft voice of Sen John J Williams RDel rising from the Senate floor has spoken loudest calling Powell an authority on adult delinquency criticizing his trip abroad with two lady friends at government expense and questioning the propriety of several government financial transactions favorable to Powell The muttered comments of Ed ucation and Labor Committee members who feel he has now outdone himself in shirking re sponsibility could prove far more wounding to the prideful Powell Potentially most threatening ol all to his continued jaunty pro gress through the House is the still unspoken feeling of some members thatPowell is bringing all Congress into disrepute am must be curbed JS recognition in writing to he government A spokesman said Melbourne onferred with the rebel govern ment over the weekend Great Britain and severa Arab states have also accordec recognition to the Rebel

Baghdad tele vision showed films of th dead Kassem His week latest troubles On Monday began lasi everythinj seemed fine Powell energetically opened an announced two weeks of hearings on President Kenne dys big education bill fulfilling a promise made to the ad ministration to get right to work on the important jneasure On Tuesday he disappeared There is no way of knowing I he had learned Williams was go ing to take the Senate floor that day However Powells favorite method of dealing with such prob lems has been to make himsel unavailable to the press At any rate he flew to his home in Puer to Rico where a spokesman said Sunday night he was just resting and talking to no one It may be that Powell deserted the hearings because he has lit tie sympathy for the administra tions decision to wrap 24 major education proposals into one su perbill with a price tag and dump it in his lap with orders to consider it as one Europe reaches the fork Old habits haunt it EDITORS NOTEln the long

system should be completed before work begins on freeways and freeways ought to be started only if the federal government puts up 90 per cent of the cost are Within these broad alternatives are many possibilities which Eu ope eyes with mixed feelings of hope dread and anger At stake are the future of Pres dent Kennedys concept of an Atlantic partnership of free na tions the outlook for the North Atlantic alliance the ideal of European union the fate of the ommon perhaps the whole course of the cold war Men who toiled patiently for years to launch the Common Mar ket viewed it as the predecessor of a Europe politically and eco nomically integrated It was an attempt to drag Eu rope away from old habits from he time when nations pursued only their own narrow interests and frequently acted like bicker ing harridans ready to make things difficult for one another at the drop of a stitch Men who opposed the whole unity include both highly vocal and highly influential figures in many themselves as vastly relieved by De Gaulles thumbsdown on Brit ish membership in the market They are relieved they say be cause they believe British success at the Brussels meeting of for eign ministers last month would have spelled US domination of Western Europe Six nations make up the Com mon Market France West Ger many Italy Belgium the Neth erlands and Luxembourg Their Brussels meeting was the begin ning of a complex Atlantic crisis When De Gaulle vetoed Britains entry he dealt a heavy blow to the morale of advocates of Euro pean unity They denounced his decision as monstrous as a dan ger to the whole Western world But the results of the explosion have not yet crystallized There is vast uncertainty in the West about the future The ques tion plaguing Europe and the United States What happens next The worst in the view of lead ers of the five nations which op posed France at Brussels will be that the Common Market will come apart its members flying into one orbit or another That would mean the resplinter ing of Europe Already there is a danger of slow paralysis in the Common Markets operations be cause the French action is delay ing or canceling decisionmaking meetings The five members who sided with Britain against De Gaulle can try to outflank French re sistance by pushing on in coop eration with the British at least oward the goal of political col laboration A framework and a forum for this exist in the Western Euro pean Union made up of the Com mon Market six and Britain Its original purpose was to stand watch over German rearmament France has no veto power in WEU She could not stop consul tation though she might try to obstruct it The five can stay together with France and try to persuade the French to ease their opposition o Britain This is being tried aut chances of De Gaulles chang ng his mind seem slim The five can content memselver with staying together with France in a sixnation community They could let Britain go her own way with the outer seven nations of European Free Trade Association This would split Eu rope into two separate trading areas A Common Market spokes man says it would confine the six to a small jail of inner Europe
