The quake registered four on the Japanese scale of seven at its epicenter in the mouth of the river Oi about 125 miles southeast of Tokyo. A woman was crushed to death i when a concrete block fell on her at a construction site in Aichi prefecture, southwest of Tokyo.

Did you know 1965 was decreed* to be an ICY year by the United Nations General Assembly? Don't be misled. It has nothing to do with ice. ICY means f?65 was to be International Cooperation Year. A look at the record of 'cooperation' makes one shiver. We are spending 54 cents out of every dollar for military purposes and Russia is cooperating nicely by spending equal or more. Science and technology are cooperating very effectively, throughout the world, to devise newer and better methods to annihilate mankind, faster and cheaper. Hanoi and Peking are cooperating to take over South Viet Nam; at the same time cooperating to chase Americans from the area. Congo factions are cooperating to continue a jungled mess. East Germany and Moscow are cooperating splendidly to retain and strengthen the Berlin wall. Arabs and' Israelis are cooperating to cut each other's throats. Greeks, Turks and Cypriots are cooperating to continue a bloody squabble over a small piece of real estate. Indonesia is willing to cooperate with any country to swallow Malaysia. This is cooperation? We don't like it. It is all a matter of record. And we still don't like it. Do you? PHIL NICHOLS, Young-Nichols Funeral Home Phone OS 5-4780 216 W.

QUIGG United Press International NEW YORK (UPI)—An upsurge of restrictive measures against press coverage of criminal proceedings has brought about a sometimes heated debate between representatives of ths law and the press. At issue is the fundamental right of a free press, serving the people's right to know, versus the equally fundamental -ipht of fair trial by an impartial jury. In some states efforts already have begun to limit crime news reporting and pretrial publicity and in others such action has Seen proposed or is under discussion. One of the more eloquent press spokesmen in answering these actions is Vincent S. Jones, executive editor, Gannett Newspapers, who told a law school alumni gathering: "Press Is Responsible" "We have a responsible press in America today. Yellow journalism is very, dead • indeed. There is much loose talk about editors reaching for sensational stories to sell newspapers. That isn't the way most newspapers are sold today. They are sold on their total content, of which crime news is a small part. "In 1S62 two million crimes were reported in the United States and there were four million arrests. Only 8 per cent of criminal cases go before juries and most of these trials get scant coverage. In a two-year period there were 51 appeals on grounds of prejudicial .pretrial coverage, but only three reversals. .. "I wonder if you have con sidered this unpalatable proposition: Newsmen, by training and daily practice, may be more objective than you lawyers, who are so passionately devoted to presenting just one side... "Fairest In World" "We' do have, a responsible iress. With all its faults it is the best press in the world, and '.he fairest. I submit that you ought to be making better and more constructive use of news papers' and broadcasting in- :tead of trying to slam the doors of the court house in our .aces." A dramatic case of the press n action in pretrial publicity is that of George Whitmore Jr., a ;!mv-witted Negro youth arrested in the sadistic knife murders )f two Manhattan career girls. ( Police detailed his alleged con- 'ession. The press trumpeted it. April 20, Quigg, 2m 4-14 Then reporters began digging They found witnesses who could ilace Whitmore far from the crime scene. Their inquiries led o the prosecutor's admission that a photograph found on v'hitmore was not that of one )f the victims nor traceable to her apartment.) The publicity .tirred especially thorough investigations by ; both press and police. | A new suspect was arrested and the charges against Whit- nore dropped. An assistant dis-. crict attorney said: "Ijf this publicity ... Whitmore might well have been slipped into the electric chair and been killed for something he- didn't do." Publicity Helped Publicity also helped get experienced defense counsel. Stanley J. Reiben, chief defense counsel, said he originally declined to accept the case when urged by two young lawyers to Jo so—but changed his mind when a reporter from the New Sfork World-Telegram came to nm with the information dis- jrediting the photograph. Ir assessing 1 the case, the •Vail Street Journal said: '.. .Whoever concocted the fictitious confession, it was not :he newspapers. They only re- .ated an account given on authority both-high and, in claiming air-tight cases, usually re- iable." • The American Society of Newspaper Editors (ASNE) is compiling a series of case histories on how the press serves and forwards the: cause of justice and fair trial. From Washington comes the story of the six month ordeal in 1950 of Robert Snead Williams, an estimator for a lumber firm ,vho happened to be driving by vhen two girls were informing Say something special, "Coronet 500": Inviting interior.

YOUR SPRING HOUSE CLEANING is Not DONE until you CLEAN RUGS CARPETS DRAPERIES DEERING CLEANERS Pick-Up Service Call for <Fr«« Estimate a policeman they had been subjected to . indecent exposure. They pointed out Williams' as the offender. Reporters Insisted Williams' lawyers tried to arrange a secret trial to save him • from embarrassment. The judge cleared the courtroom but when reporters.protested he told them they could return "as a matter of right." The trial was a page-one story. Williams, a man with a spotless record insisted it was a case of mistaken identity. The girls stuck to their story that he was the one. Williams was found guilty The judge delayed sentence pending receipt of a probation report. The trial publicity then paid off. A man in Chevy Chase had been suffering con- sicence torment reading of the trial. He wrote two letters to the prosecutor and then visited him to confess -he was the offender. The charge against Williams was thrown out. Williams was now eager to talk to-reporters. He acknowledged the publicity had caused the letter writer to clear him. Began Digging In New York, Gregory Cruz, 22, a clerk, was shot three times by a detective as a murder suspect. He was charged with felonious assault on a de tective and resisting an officer —but never with, murder. He was in a hospital three months, and investigating reporters began probing behind police reports. They found four witnesses who confirmed Cruz' story that he was stopped, searched, and beaten by the plainclothes detective, who showed no identification. Cruz said he ran because he thought the man was a robber. The reporters turned over the facts. A grand jury dropped charges. Departmental hearings in the case of the detective- cleared him. In Chicago, the Sun-Times reported that vigorous investigative work over.20 years had produced, among other results: —Freeing of a man convicted of murder after the paper showed conviction was based on false testimony. Convicted Attorney '•• —Conviction of a state's attorney's policeman, whose family had political connections, for. rl a.. wanton killing of two youths. The case was reopened after the original grand jury failed to indict. —Closing of eight "untouchable" B-girl clip joints that, fed profits to criminals but couldn't be shut down because police- raid evidence was consistently quashed in court. . ' . ' In Philadelphia, Rudolph Sheeler spent 11 years in prison before repudiating his murder confession, saying police beat him until he made it. A year later-he got a new trial and freedom, mainly through the efforts of Louis B. Schwartz, a law professor, working with a Philadelphia Bulletin reporter. The reporter's, role, Schwartz said, "basically was that of keeping public attention focused on a bad thing—we would like to say that the judicial process functions without that, but we can't say it." Courant Spoke Out The Hartford Courant, vigorously alive at age 200, spoke out when the state's attorney told police chiefs in Hartford County to set limits on crime news: "Every censorship is excused on the ground that its purpose is noble. Alias, the evil that follows in the end always outweighs the good that was sought. "How are the people of Hartford County to know and to judge their police, and even their courts, if they may read only what the police and prosecutor want to tell them, This is the perfect way. to cover up mistakes. And history testifies that in the end such concealment ends in corruption. "Despite the current drive to withhold news that the public has every right to know, responsible newspapermen are in a mood to stop the shouting match in which they cry "Tree press while the .lawyers cry back fair trial. "It is a time instead to reach a reasonable balance ... Connecticut is a civilized state in which there has been such a reasonable balance. That balance must be restored by an end to this police censorship, as Police Chief Grace in Bristol has had the good sense to decide. "The alternative is darkness' Phil Castoff (Continued from oaqe 4). eight hits and went all the way to gain his first victory. Marcelino Lopez, a 21-year- old Cuban lefthander, registered his first major league victory against the Tigers. Lopez, who lost his first start to the Yankees, set Detoit down on seven hits and struck out nine in his route-going perform ahce. Jim Fregosi and Joe Adcock paced the Angels' at tack with two hits apiece. Sidel ines (Continued from page 4) ment, but some of the finest athletes in the entire state will compete in this meet. We have n't seen the entry list yet, but Gary Rocsevelt,- truly a track powerhouse, is usually present and fans watching them may well be watching one of the best track schools in the entire nation. We hope to see most T.H.S-. followers in the stands. State Seeking (Continued from page 1) Under the law, persons who lost their homes and other properties in the big wind are liable just as everyone else for payment of the first semi-annual installment of taxes for 1964 payable in 1955 by. the first Monday in May. That would hit hard any family in modest circumstances forced to pay unusual expenses in connection with tornado rehabilitation. Furthermore, under the law, the second payment would be due next fall, and payments would be due in the spring and autumn of 196S on the full, pre- storm value of property as of March 1,. 1965, unless there is a reassessment later this year which takes' into consideration what the tornadoes did. At South Bend, St. Joseph County Assessor Roman Korpal said assessing property as of March 1 is like "sticking a knife in a guy already shot twice." "But there isn't a thing we can do," he said. POST OFFICE ROBBED LA CROSSE, Ind. (UPI) — Burglars broke into the Lacrosse Post Office early today in one of three area postal break-ins. Other burglaries were at the Francesville and Medaryville Post Offices. The back door of the Lacrosse office was pried open and drawers ransacked. Some mail was opened, a rural carrier's money pouch was taken containing. $6 or $7 change, and a metal box containing a few stamps and coins was missing.
