^MY,_ SEPTEMBER 13, 193? BT,YTHEVn.,LE. (ARK.V COURIER NEWS If Torpedoed Bri lions Toast U. S. Rescuers Cornmunicalions Acl Gives Broad Powers Over Broadcasters to Preside Bj BRUOE OATTON Courier News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Sept, 13.—When President Rorsevell—who lias proclaimed a state of limited national emergency—remarked tliat lie hail no IntenUon of trying to censor the American press or radio "ni the present lime," he xcl this reporter '* onrierlng. Suppose (Mo President did have such, an intention—under existing laws, just, what could he accomplish along the line of censorship? Tlie're are two answers, as follows: as far as the pi-ess is concerned, lie could do practically nothing. AS far as radio Ls concerned, he could do practically everyOifnfr. First, the radio. NETWORKS COULD BK TAKKN OVER UHdcr the Federal Conimuiilc.i- lions act of 1934, the President may at lils discretion use almost any means' of regulating or controlling broadcasting. He may even take over stations or networks to lie run by (lie government', lie may order equipment removed from any station. the legislation under which broadcasters are now licensed specifies that the President is empowered to take such rigorous actitn in time 'of war, in time of threat or peri! to this country—or "(o preserve the neutrality of the United States." •. • • The likelihood that any such powers . would be Invoked is very slight, however, according to the Federal . Communications Commission. • "Broadcasters are doing a remarkable job ot censoring their own stuff," says a spokesman for the commission. "We have been (old that a comparatively liberal censorship exists In Europoean countries, including Germany. Commentators are not required to submit word-for-word copies of their talks in advance, hut are simply asked to hnml their notes to the official censor before going on the air." fCC officials p:Inl out that radio is tackling its new role of war- coverage without precedents to fall back on. Officials of networks, as well as cf individual stations, have displayed full willingness to cooperate with the commission. If -the i l CJ5,.ot the President ,de,-, sires any change in method ol presentation cr in- typo of program during the war in Europe, there is every evidence that the radio people will comply willingly with any suggestions that are made I>RESS CO-OPERATES ANYWA1' . Beyond , making suggestions — which, might or might net be acted on—there isn't much of anything the administration could do to control the press us long as (lie country is neutral. It ought to be added, probably, that no one in the government is worried by nils' fact. Wholly aside !rcm the little matter of the freedom of the press, it is pointed out. that "the newspapers have amply demonstrated their willingness • to co-operate in previous grave crises. During-the last war—after the United Stales get in, that is—the Fostoffice Department did try to get through a bill which' would have put stringent restrictions on newspapers through control of their use of the mails. Congress refused to pass the bill, however; ns it turned out, the newspapers themselves established a central bureau of censorship for the handling of government information. If the United States actually got into a war, the government ccidd impose some form of censorship through control of the telephone nntl telegraph systems. These agencies could be placed under Hie direction of military authorities with arbitrary p;wcrs to administei them at their discretion. That wasn't done during the World War, however, and it isn't believed here that there is much chance that it would be clone if the United States sliaild go to war again. Part of (he crew of the torpedoed British freighter Olivcgrove is shown aboard the S S Washington drinking a toast to theiv rescuers.

He claimed that the city had been put to an expense of 513 In fire nlarins originating from the Fitzsimmons property and that the service station shed was a "credit lo the properly beside it."
