Reviews Case After His 1st Year in Jail NEW VOHK Ift— The Board of Directors of The Associated Press said today It is confident the United Slates government "will explore and exploit any opportunity to end Hie unjust confinement" of AP reporter William N. Oatis in a Czechoslovnkian Jail. Oalis was Jailed a .year ago this week—April 23-on charges of espionage. He was .sentenced last July 4 to 10 years Imprisonment. The AP directors said the trial showed he was guilty "only of endeavoring, honestly and objectively, to gather and report information which In the Western world Is legitimate and essential news." One effect of retaliatory measures invoked by the United States a&raln.sl Czech trade, the directors said, has been a .substantial lie- elino in exports from Czechoslovakia. These dropped, the board said, from more than nine million dollars in the first Quarter of 1Q51 to .slightly more lhan 2'-', million dollars In Ihe last three months of 1951. The AP directors reviewed the Oatis case in their report to the annual meeting of members of The Associated Press, world-wide news-gathering co-operative, held in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

Meetings of the American News- >aper Publishers Association will ie held tomorrow through Thurs- lay. In discussing the Oalis case, the AP directors said: "The United Slates government ipproprialely termed the Oatis trial 1 n mockery and travesty on ustice. Throughout the Irce world, expressions of shock and revulsion igainst Oatis' treatment have been ilmost universal. "The directors, officers and nanagcment of The Associated r>icss, supported by strong public icmiment everywhere, have done iverythmg witbin their power to issisv Uiuis and to obtain his ireedom. "Tne Associated Press will con- intie its efforts and. your directors ire confident that the government, of the United Stales will explore iml exploit any opportunity to end he unjust confinement, of our reporter," The board noted also that Prank Noel, AP photographer, is a prisoner of war in Korea, and it commented that he "has the unique distinction of having been able to continue, at least temporarily, his professional work tor Tb» Associated Press whll. In enemy hands." As a prisoner, Noel took pictures of other U.N. prisoners. They were used widely. In the nation's press. The past year was one when many new problems arose "to plague the minds of men and to harry their governments," the board said. Its report continued: "The events that reflect this time of conflict are highly charged with passion and partisanship.
