have been j arrived at without benefit of actua visitation by t h e reporter Chesly Manly i As a matter of fact when learned he his way tc the did predic in a of way what the summation of the series The burden of it I said would be that while the Turks are wonderful people they havent been helped much by American It wont surprise you to learn that Manly didnt view ref erence to his reportorial efforts as admit that I didnt be any compliment You say I found exactly what I was expectel he stated ina pers6nalrTetter This snide aspersion on my integrity is exactly what one would ex pect of you

point concede the honors to him M two visits to Turkey one whollj at my own expense the othe with my office sharing in thi cost have not equaled Man lyS five weeks of probing But that isnt the point at is I was free to seek out am report precisely what I founc to be the truth Nobody wa looking over my shoulders as I wrote and nobody was using blue pencil on my copy when it got to the newspaper over which I preside as editor How well I did this of course is for others to decide Im only saying that I was under no re straints in my search for am reporting of the truth If I fell short it was my own fault THAT IS NOT tfee situation so far as this or any other Tribune writer is concerned as I pointed out in this paragraph in my re SHATTERED SHOWCASE Fireman Robert Lofing sizes up a glass sweep

whole truth as you saw it You know whether you called the shots as you saw them AD I am saying is that if your reports had been in con flict with the Tribune line on foreign aid they never would have been printed In the Show me a deviation from this rule except for AP spots news I concluded on this point I of course yield o nobody in my admiration for the Turks At least r hundred limes edi
