"Words That Won the War" by | James R. Mock and Cedric Larson [ (Princeton University Press: S3.75'. j The most, complete study to dale I i.f the operations of Ihe Committee j on Public Information between ; 1017 and 1919 has heightened in- , tcresl today. Were we censored i during the World War? Here is a ! '. brief estimate by the authors: ' If the censorship was not quite j as voluntary as many Amercans be- t lieved it was during 11)171918, it was i very largely self-administered. The; Committee on Public Information set j down the general principqlcs. and • without legal action, the great majority 1 of Amerisan newspapers followed ' these rules under their own inter-'j pretalion. Hints of political use of Ihe CPI were of course constantly offered during the war. In a sense they were justified, for if it is difficult to distinguish between the President as • politician and the President as stales- man in pence-time, it is practically impossible when Ihe country is at war. The CPI was naturally used to the advancement of Mr. Wilson's ideas; but in the narrower sense of seeking aggrancii/emenl for the administration's political party. George Creel's committee has a rernarkabley clear record. Some of Ihe eommitlee's mosl responsible positions were filled by Republicans, and Mr. Creel set his face against involvement in local politics even when the "patriotic" excuse for it seemed pressing to some of his friends. Censorship, too, was employed "politically" in so far as the term covers stippcrs-sinn of arguments against the • Wilsunian system if ideas, but it wus ! never successfully charged that Mr. i Creel used Ills censorship authority for strictly partisan advantage or to advance his personal or political fortunes. Even charges of outright disloyalty he received without calling ,on (he government for protection. But Ihe power was there. It was there in abundance, and it is easy to imagine how logically and effortlessly, supported by wave on wave of patriotic emotion. George Creel might have continued to expand his powers and tigh- , ten his grip on the American press. That he did not is (he strongest C. Coleman ft. Greene . C. Wright A. Kount/ J. Williams D.

Hughes May Play In Zebra Contest Tiger's Ace Ball Carrier Getting Ready for An- naul Battle SERIAL STORY JOAN OF ARKANSAS BY JERRY BRONDFJELD COPYRIGHT. I83P. NEA SERVJCE.'.IMCi LITTLE ROCK—Howard Hughes. Little Rock's all-state halfback, in- ciipacilated the past several weeks be- ciitisc of a hand injury suffered in a woocl.shop accident, may be in uniform when the Tigers play the Zebras at Pine Bluff November 18. It was necessary to amputate below the first joint of his middle finger on his left hand after the digit came in contact with a saw. Coach Clyde Van Sickle said that Hughes had been running in a sweat suit for the past two days. A special cast for the injured hand is being made and may be fitted Thursday. If the cast proves satisfactory, Hughes may return to action against the Bedbugs'at Fordyce next week. .. "Howard's hand is far from being healed." said Coach Van Sickle, "but he may be able to play if it is properly protected."

"It'll just, lake me an hour al Ihe most," Marianne promised. "I've got lo skim over some outside reading for that silly economics course. It's a swell nighl and we can slop in al the Varsity for cokes or something. C'mon." Marianne didn't do as much reading as she planned and they wound up at Varsity a little before in. They were dallying over their drinks and did net notice when a Miorl, dapper man in a dark blue pull entered and bought a pack of cigarets at Ihe tobacco counter. Rocco lighted up and leaned back against llie showcase. He putted a stream of smoke into I the air and slaved around i place absently. The nickelodeon was going full blast. Students straggled in looking for empty booths. Waiters rushed around helplessly as usual. Rocco smiled at old Uncle .lim, Ihe cashier, behind Ihe counter and jerked his head al the .scene in general. ''Those kids never get tired of this stuil', do they?" "Hop:' not," Uncle Jim said dryly. "I slop eating when they do. Al least 1 stop eating reg'lar- ly." Rocco laughed, good-naturedly. "You've got somethin' there, grandpaw." And then: "Say, tell me—any tickets to be had for that bull game Saturday? Understand it's a sellout." "Sellout? Son, I'm tellin' you I've been here clors lo 24 years and I've never seen a demand for tickets like this is going to be.

I shoulda made some arrangements I'or a tickul, 1 guess." Rocco blew another stream of smoke into the air as Uncle .lim rang up two sales. Rocco looked down lho crowded row.-; i>( booths ! inside and riveted his eyvs on .loan and Marianne. lie .saw tlioy were through with their drinks but he knesv llu-y'd be silting there awhile. He j a (licked ashes to the lloor wiih a slight movement of his linger. He turned back lo Uncle Jim. "Kid brother of mine went lo Tech a few years back," he Jicd. just 1o make conversation. "Is 1hal right? What was his Tommy laughed. "Pass up the Pitt game? Jim, you must be getting slug-nutty. There isn't a kid on this campus who'd miss that thing for 50 bucks." He turned to Rocco. "Your best bet is to camp down in the hotel lobbies. That's where the gambling crowd operates. You usually can pick up a ticket, there, too." Tommy looked at Rocco more closely, glanced at the scar. Rocco toyed with his cigaret. "Haven't I seen you before?" Tommy inquired, "or are YOU a .stranger around here?" "granger,"' Rocco said easily. "Total." Tommy nodded and wandered inside. Ho waved to Joan and Marianne when they stood up to leave. The girls stopped and chatted wilh him for a moment or two and then moved on. * * * 'P OCCO was browsing through I the maga/ines when the girls stopped lo pay their check. He looked up and studied Joan in- lently as Uncle Jim made change. When they had gone he approached the showcase again. "Very striking gal, that dark- haired one. Student here, I suppose." "Yep . . . Joan Johnson's her name. Awful nice girl. Pretty as a picture, don't you think?" "I think," Rocco replied succinctly. "Hut how come a gal like that ain't squired by one of ll>c college boys?"
