TUESDAY, MARCH 30,1948 BLYTOrVTLLJi (AKK.T COURIER KFWi British Delegate Raps Reds Policy Warns Soviets That Press Dictatorship Could Cause Downfall By Homer Jenln Untied Prru Staff Correspondent GENEVA, Marcli 30. (UP)—Hector McNeil British delegate to Hie International Conference of Free. dorn of Information nnd the Press, warned Russia and its Communist satellites yesterday that dictatorship over thought and the press •jbsiild weaken them steadily ami TiTiimately "damn" them completely- . McNeil, ir, » major statement of British policy, echoed the appeal o( William Benton, chief America 1 ! , delegate, for a press free of government control and interference. Russia's A lex a tide r Bogoniolov replied to McNeil later, yesterday. He defender! the Soviet, conception of a free press safe-guarded by law from alleged distortion and "warmongering. ''If I were the dearest friend of I he Soviet state and its Slav satellites, and perhaps by my advice 1 may make myself that, then this \vould be my advice." McNeil said. "Dictatorship over thought, expression and publication may ensure you for the moment, but It will weaken you steadily and in time damn you completely." McNeil said the remedy for Communist, criticism of sections of the British and American press which may be wilfully misinformed is not more manacles and more chains. "The remedy," he said, "is to open doors which are now closed, to provide facilities for trained reporters to report, to afford newspapers their traditional ability to publish, to take the gags off the radios of nations, and to take th° blinkers off people who are permitted to look at films. The remedy is not less publication, but more." McNeil disclosed that Britain will follow the example of the United States and introduce a draft of a freedom of information convention or treaty conference. ^An authoritative source said the Vitish draft of the treaty \vould be broader than the American pro' posal.
