J- . if VMUt ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) -President Lyndon Johnson will leave office with perhaps the worst record for credibility of any president in history, Sigma Delta Chi, the national journalism society, reported Tuesday. Secrecy policies of the Johnson administration and court orders restricting coverage of crime news were attacked in the society's report on freedom of information. Johnson's secrecy policies "have periodically interferred with the operations of the Freedom of Information Law," said the report, released at the opening of the society's convention. The report says the "credibility gap" reached "awesome proportions," making the Pen-, tagon and the White House two of the most difficult beats to cover. "President Johnson has virtually abandoned the type of news conference which served the Washington press corps and the nation well from Franklin D. Roosevelt's time through the thousand days of John F. Kennedy," the report declared. It described news conferences of past administrations as well as planned meetings with the press, giving all correspondents an opportunity to attend. "It is more than coincidental that the credibility gap was not a serious problem when this type of news conference was being held at regular intervals," the report said. Johnson was especially criticized for calling "surprise news conferences," when only the White House regular correspondents were available. "Sharp questions sometimes are asked at these conferences, but the regulars are under a handicap," the report said. "If they ask questions which displease the President, they know that they are risking harassment and other problems on a competitive news beat." The committee, headed by Clark Mollenhoff, Washington correspondent of the Des Moines Register and Tribune and the Minneapolis Star and Tribune, said Johnson has "an obsession for secrecy." It said Johnson did his utmost "to maintain a monopolistic control of the news until he was ready to announce it and when he reached this point, he bent every effort to try to have the news reported actually as he gave it." The freedom of information report also attacked the Rear-don report of the American Bar Association and said it has caused serious problems for the press. The bar association's controversial recommendations were prepared by a committee headed by Justice Paul C. Reardon of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and were designed to guide coverage of trials. But the Sigma Delta Chi report said the guidelines brought about undue restrictions on coverage of police and court news. Highly restrictive press regulations surrounding the trials of Sirhan Sirhan and James Earl Ray also were criticized. The report on freedom of information also questions the conduct of Chicago's police force during the Democratic National Convention last "VIETNAM" by ANNA VITA A clay model of bromo on marblo, whkh will bo displayed at OPENING tho FIRST WEEK in DECEMBER Open Weekday! 10 to S, Weekend! by Appointment 80 S.

The Center on Social Welfare Policy and Law, based at Columbia University in New York, said the suits would seek to establish either Food Stamp or Commodity Distribution programs in most of the estimated 500 counties that now have neither. The center argues that depriving a person of the right to government food because of his residence is a violation of the Constitution's equal protection clause, said staff attorney Ronald F. Pollock. "We're claiming hunger is illegal in the United States," attorney Gabe Kaimowitz said in announcing the suits. ' Congress has said OK, we'll do away with it." The Food Stamp program, set up in 1964, lets poor families buy more groceries than they have money for. The commodity distribution program, set up in 1935 and modified in 1949, allows the government to give away certain foods. Kaimowitz said the center is arguing the two acts "require by their language that every county be given one program or the other." Most of the suits will be filed by local cooperating attorneys Tuesday or Wednesday, he said. The move is an attempt to push even further one of the goals won by the Poor People's Campaign. During that spring campaign the Rev. Ralph David Abernathy won a promise from Agriculture Secretary Orville L. Freeman that one program or the other would be put into all of the poorest 1,000 counties. Freeman announced Monday expansion of the programs to more than 200 additional counties. But Kaimowitz said that still leaves about 500 counties without either program. And while they may not be poor counties, he said, there are poor people living in them. The group said the states where suits would be filed are California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Maryland, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Communists in the last election. Without the Socialists to give him a majority, Leone was powerless. As he resigned, railway workers, civil servants and school teachers across the country stayed home. Transportation faltered, government offices closed and mail deliveries stopped. Brief violetce flared in Turin where students demanded educational reforms. Three youths were reported hurt. Altogether, the strike was more of an inconvenience than a hardship, as was one last Thursday by more than one million workers protesting their pension plans. Italian politics since World War II have been in continuous flux. The Christian Democrats, a middle-of-the-road party with great Catholic strength, has been predominant, but it has had to look to both sides of the spectrum for support. The country's Commuifist party, the largest in the West, is a constant thorn for the Christian Democrats. The Communists have scored well in recent national elections and prevented a clearcut moderate majority. This political reality finally led too the coalition agreement between the Christian Democrats and the Socialists five years ago, but it has been shaky ever since. Italians Compel Leone To Resign OPENING NIGHT party hosts at Palm Beach recently were Dr. and Mrs. Fred E. Manulis, who attended the premier of moving picture "Duffy", directed by Dr. Manulis' brother Martin Manulis. t ROME (UPD-Premier Giovanni Leone resigned Tuesday and brought down Italy's 28th government in 23 years while the country shook with student and labor turmoil. Leone, 59, handed in his anticipated resignation shortly after one million workers began a nationwide 24-hour strike for pay raises and better pensions. It was the second major strike in less than a week. A caretaker premier who came to power just five months ago, Leone quit in an effort to force together another, stronger coalition government with enough power in parliament to push through the country's legislative demands. President Giuseppe Saragat, who accepted Leone's resignation, said he would begin consultations Friday to find a man who could assemble a workable alliance of the dominant Christian Democratic party and the powerful but rebellious left-wing factions. Intense bargaining for Leone's old job began almost immediately. The leading candidates were Mariano Rumor, 53, secretary of he Christian Democrats, and Emilio Colombo, 48, the outgoing treasury minister. Leone's government was doomed when the Socialist party pulled out after blaming the Christian Democrats for navy Socialist losses to the When the impression you give in pants is all-important, good tailoring is the prerequisite.
