WASHINGTON (AP) - The American Society of Newspaper Editors was told today "some dents have been made in news carriers at the federal government level." and that President Nixon's information chief "is trying to close the credibility gap in Washington." But the ASNE's Freedom of Information Committee cautioned in its annual report to the 500 editors attending the opening session of the Society's convention that "It's too early to predict the eventual results . . . There arc vast areas of govern- nent secrecy that must be chal- enged." The report was among the first items of business, which also included a panel discussion on President Nixon's first 100 days in office and a luncheon speech by Secretary of State William P. Rogers. The FOI committee also re ported progress in developing "voluntary, cooperative under standings at the state levc among the press, bench, am bar regarding the reporting 0 criminal proceedings." In this field too, however, the panel suggested, things could hange should the American Bar Association's House of Delegates, which meets in Au- just, adopt the proposed Code of "·rofessional Responsibility. The committee cautioned against "a letdown in efforts to ichieve voluntary understand- ngs." The committee passed on to the ASNE a report by Samuel J. Archibald, of the Washington of- 'ice of the University of Missouri's Freedom of Information Center, in its assessment of the Nixon administration's information policies. Discussing the performance of Herbert G. Klein, former newspaperman who is now director of communications for the exec utive branch, Archibald said: "Herb Klein is the most quali fied man ever put in the federa government's lop informatior post . . . Not since the role o presidential press secretary was created by Franklin Delano Roosevelt have any of the feder al government's top publicitj men had the administrate muscle that Herb Klein does. On nformation matters, he speaks .vi'i the voice of the President TOO SOON "Although it is too soon to guess whether Herb Klein's in- ormation program will worker even whether he will be able o stick to it when the politicians and the bureaucrats get together to cover up the inevitable governmental bumbles--his irst moves prove that he is Tying to close the credibility ;ap in Washington." Richard M. Schmidt Jr.. the new ASNE counsel, called Klein "the brightest hope available to all reporters" in improving the accessibility of information. Noting President Nixon's announced intention to curtail sharply the use of executive privilege in withholding information. Schmidt said the prob lem is as yet untested--and "appears to me to be an area where ASNE must continue to move forward." The FOI committee urged efforts "to work on those local or state barriers which have a national pattern," such as "the nationwide effort to have secret negotiations between school boards and teachers on such matters as salaries and curriculum." CHALLENGE Anoher challenge, the panel said, "at the very roots of the journalism profession, is the need to encourage careful, pene- :rating reporting and vigorous, imaginative direction by editors barriers can withstand." The committee was hardest on military information policies, concluding: "The military continues as a major problem, not only in information from the combat areas, but also in the frustrating practice of having announcements on purely military mat ters come from politicians. "These are matters which do not involve security dangers but on which military officials have been reluctant to speak The reason? Perhaps antiquatec regulations. Perhaps an effor to politic with the politicians who pass on military budgets. Reporting progress in the state-level adoption of voluntary understandings to govern th( publication of pre-trial news he committee noted that in two nstances where especially rig- rous rules were imposed by udges--in the trials of James Earl Kay and Slrhan B. Sirhan -Diligent reporters were able to give their readers full information.
