MONDAY, APRIL 23, 1951 ,BLYTHEVn.LE, (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE THKEB Life Has Become More Hazardous For News Reporters in Past Year NEW YORK, April 23. W 1 )—Widespread strife and unsettled world conditions added to the difficulties and hazards of news reporting during the past year, the bonrd of directors of the Associated Press said today, _^ "The past year has imposed ex- f%raordinary strains on the staff of ihe Associated Press, as It has upon everyone seeking to report world events honestly, intelligently and objectively," the board said in its annual report. "In the midst of great controversy and emotional partisanship, there are always criticism and consequent challenges to rcportorlal capacity. The board desires to record its satisfaction with the way the staff has met these challenges." Report Marie at AP Meet The report was read at the annual meeting of members of the Associated Press, worldwide news gathering cooperative. More than 1100 members gatherer for the meeting and annual luncheon at the Hotel Waldorf Astoria Lewis W. Douglas, former ambassa dor to Great Britain, was the luncheon speaker. i The board said many new problems arose during the year in maintaining the free flow of information throughout the world. "After much debate and delay. military authorities exercised their privilege of replacing a system of voluntary censorship with compulsory field censorship in Korea." the . report said. J|| Access More Difficult ^^ "Access to news behind the iron curtain and elsewhere became even more difficvilt. The Associated Press lost as correspondents two nationals of Russian satellite countries. Requests by the Associated Press for permission to send correspondents into countries under Russian influence have been denied or pigeonholed." The directors said that during the past year, more than ever before, the AP had gone "beyond the mere surface coverage of news." The report added: "Time after time, the potentialities of given situations have been recognized and developed before the full impact became generally apparent. With explanatory stories roundups and interviews, the As-' sociated Press has played an important part In enlightening the public on Issues of great interest. ; "The great debate over U.S. foreign policy was one conspicuous instance in which the Associated Press displayed resourcefulness and Initiative." "The Great Debate" The board added that, the term "great debate" apparently had originated in a weekly news log of Executive Editor Alan J. Gould. "The more recent controversy resulting in General MacArtbur's removal," the report said, "is another case In which the wide resources of the Associated Press were usccJ to vorld," P reporters covered the Korean var "with courage nnd distinction." he board said, adding that they iid "their jobs well despite dangers ind hardships," William R. Moore, AP staffer, lost his life in the frontlincs in the fighting, and Photographer Frank Noel was captured and is still held by Communists. Congress to Make It Illegal To Freeze Parity, Solon Says WASHINGTON, April 23. M>) —.eludes wage-price curb' authority. Senator Maybank (D-SC) predicted The prcscnt-'law expires June 30. today that Congress will make it "specifically illegal" for Hie administration to freeze farm parity In any move to cut food prices. Maybank. chairman of Hie Senate Banking Committee, said he understands government stabilization officials have recommended that President Truman ask Congress to authorize such a freeze. "Any such proposal doesn't stand a chance." said Maybank, whose committee handles wage-price control legislation. "Congress not only will reject it, but in my opinion will \vrite a provision iuto the law naking a freeze of farm parity spe- cificnlly illegal. Mr. Truman said last week he ioon would- sent! to Congress his recommendations for revision of the Defense Production Act. which tn- The existing prohibits price ceilings on farm commodities before they reach the parity level, some items are above It, but many nre not. The plan recommended to Mr Truman reportedly calls instead for a freeze of parity at the Jan. 15 level. That, backers of the plan say would open the way for price control on certain items sooner than otherwise would be the case. Maybank has said the Income of fanners has been declining the last few years, and that there is no justification for freezing parity.
