AP Says Little Progress Made In Negotiations to Free Oatis NEW YORK (JB—The Board o( Directors of The Associated Press said today there has been no "substantial, discernible progress" toward obtaining the release of William N. Oatis from a Czechoslovakian jail. Oatis. chief of the AP bureau in Prague, was jailed two years ago on charges of espionage. He is under a 10-year sentence. The board noted also, in its report for the annual membership meeting of The Associated Press, world-wide news-gathering co-operative, that another AP employe, photographer Frank Noel, is still a prisoner of war in Korea. "Freedom-loving people everywhere continue to denounce the detention of Oatis and demand his release," the board said. "The Czech government thus far has turned a deaf ear to pleas based on humanitarianism nnd has been equally unresponsive to the economic' and political pressures im| posed as a result of the treatment of Oatis. It is the board's fervent hope that before the members assemble again, Oatis' freedom will have been restored." The board said available information indicated that both Oatis and Noel are in "reasonably good health and receiving humane treatment. Prolonged incarceration, however, must be as galling to them as our failure to effect their release is frustrating to us." "Every possible effort is being exerted In their behalf," the board said. The board presented its report for a business meeting of members prior to the annual luncheon, at which Secretary of the Treasury George M. Humphrey was to speak. The members voted for six directors and considered applications of 12 associate members for regular AP membership. The results of the election for directors will not be known until late tonight.
