VA ' April *• (UP)—The first attempt at the International Conference on Freedom of Information to bar the press from a committee meeting waa rejected unanimously yeaterday. Erwln' D. canham, editor of the Christian Science Monitor, said for the unite* States that to cloae any meeting here to the public would: be Inconsistent with the purpose* of a meeting called U discuss freedom of Information. On a vote, not a' single country raised a h.and to favor oustlnf of press representatives, and Chairman Pernand Dehou**e of Belgiym declared the notion rr'ected unanimously. Dehouwe hlm*elf first raised the question at the opening aeaslon of th e 10-natlon drafting committee named to attempt to bring the American resolution condemning government and private distortion oJ news In line with a series of amendments. Might Encourage Speeche* He aald It w«« customary for a drafting committee to meet behind closed door* because they dealt with technical matters. Admtiulon of the pre««, he said, might encourage too many speeches in the committee. "However," he *sld, "this conference was called to discuss freedom of Information and It might be considered contrary to its purpose to exclude the public. Nevertheless, i do not believe tills argument is a decisive one, since a press communique could be issued latrc." >Vench Delegate Jenn Letourneau *aid he thought the committee meeting *hould be closed. Then Canham expressed regret that the question had been raised at all. "We would most profoundly object to closing the doors," he said. "It would be a negation of the principles of the conference."
