WEDNESDAY, MAY 5, 1948 Committee Okays Secret Data Bill Act Would Unlock Confidential Files Of Federal Agencies WAbHINOTON, May 5. (Up) — The House Rules Committee ycsl«v- <!»y okayed a bill dtslened to unlock the secret files of government p.gcncios for any Congressional committee. Its author said the measure also could be used to fine or pall newspapermen or others who publish confidential Information that has been deliveted to Congress. Tlie Ijill Is .sponsored by Rep. Clare E. HoftniHii, R., Mich. It was in- lended primarily to give Congress the power to imve a look at any executive department file. Hoffman admitted to the Rules Committee thai the measure could result In penr.lties for newspapermen who publish confidential "leaks." The hill would give Congressional committees authority to require executive agencies to give Uiem any information. Committee members could then decide, by a majority \otc, which part of the information should be kept secret. Any committee member, employe t uny other person," who tluv osecl confidential information rt be guilty of a dlsdemeanor. He could be punished by a 11,000 fine and one year imprisonment. • Rep. Clarence J. Blown R O raised the question of whether this section would apply to the press Hofiman said it would. "The press has no all-inclusive right and privilege of disclosing in- .'onnation that is detrimental to the country." he said. "In time of war, it could be punished for treason If it disclosed information of »id and comfort to the enemy." Brown later told reporters he will offer an amendment to exempt newspapermen from the penal provisions of tlie bill. Grand Jurors' Charges Dropped By Circuit Judge HOT SPRINGS, Ark., May t.
