WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22, 1953 Hl.YTHEVTI.l.K (ARK.) COURIER NEWS FACE ANPA Prexy Hits Back at Charge of 'One-Party Press' NEW YORK i.l'l—The president of the American Newspaper Publish ers Association struck back toda • at charges stemming from th presidential campaign that th United States has a "one-parts press." Charles P. McCahill, publishe •v^frf the Cleveland News, replied ii an address prepared for delivery a the ANPA convention to criticisn of the press by some followers o AcUai E. Stevenson, the Democratic candidate. Stevenson, in a speech at Port land, Ore,, last September, ex pressed concern that the nation was developing a one-party press He added, however, that he had been "impressed by the fair treat ment accorded to me by mos newspapers, including those alignec editorially with the opposition. 1 McCahil! said today that hi thinks, with the months gone by "it can be said confidently that the political attack on the 'one-party press' has been effectively dissi paled." , • "We were by no means 'one party'," he said. "If the majority were for the successful presidentia candidate, it cannot be denied thai the opposition had powerful and able representation." He' said it would be a sad day if fear of anything prevented a single newspaper from declaring itself ^honestly. ™ Amendment Needed "Neither the majority nor the minority was afraid to speak out on tin's critical issue of American leadership," he said. "Let us be grateful that this was abundantly proved. "Incidentally, this so-called 'one- party press' published the accusation made against it as news on the front pages of their newspaper— Just as they published all the news." McCahill advised publishers, in line with presenting the facts, to "keep an alert eye" on international agreements or treaties "ostensibly" intended to bring about freedom of information. He said the fact was that many of these proposals came from countries "which have no sympathy with and do not want, complete freedom of information for their people. ..." "Representatives of other nations have their_own ideologies concerning among other things, how much th3.v want their people to know P' ?ut their governments," he add- McCahill advised newspapers r":unst seeking a definition of 1 :ir position under the Constitu- t ,:n. because "n free press is guar- ap eed by the Constitution." .. "To advocate action by the Con- 'K =ss is to acknowledge that Congress can legislate on matters not authorized by the Constitution," he s;r.d. "In my opinion," he added, "the U:\HS should never put itself in tlie Fire Razes Hotel '.n Kansas City KANSAS CITY (/PI— Flames swept Ilirougli the four-story Washington Hotel early today.

Cause of the fire was not known. position of -conceding the power to reiiuliUe it in any way. It should oppose any effort to be regulated by treaty or otherwise." McCahill's address came as an ANPA committee on federal laws reported Unit some federal and state legislators who resent "Frank reporting and criticism" nre trying to regulate the press through legislation. The treaty question also was ! laken up by Carl B. Rix of Mil- ! waukee. a past president of the j Amerian Bar Association. He said adoption of two treaties, the United Nations Charter and the 1948 charter of the Organization of the American States, allowed Congress to override powers reserved for the states, because a treaty becomes supreme law superseding domestic law. Abundantly Proved Rix said that only a constitutional amendment could restore the United States to "a nation of delegated powers of Congress and reserved powers of the states." "Without that amendment, the people of the United States have i anotSer kind and character of government without their approval, assent or knowledge," he said. "A peaceful revolution has been attained without the knowledge of Lhe people." The ANPA Federal Laws Com- [ mittee, headed by J. Hale Stein- j man of the Lancaster (Pa.) Intel- i gencer-Journal and Sunday News. ! said a tendency to curb the press j was evident in many bills filed in j Congress and state legislatures, j None was enacted, however, in j he past year. [ In another report, the publishers lailed newspaper boys for char- cter and aversion to delinquency, j Howard W. Stodghill of the Phil- ' adelphia Bulletin headed the ANPA j Newspaperboy Committee which j presented the report. The association's postal commit- ee noted that the third 10 per cent ncrease in second-class postal •ates since April 1, 1952, would go into effect April 1, 1954. It expressed hope that a congressional study now under Way a possible revision in rates j would proceed on a practical and j ealistic basis, with downward re- /ision of some "public service" harges now placed against second- lass mail. The committee, headed by Dudey A. White, publisher of the j iandusky O. Register-Star-News, j aid it "is confident that the news- i .pers of the country want no sub- j idy and are willing to assume I leir share of any obligation ; :iat rightsully belongs to them.'

Officials said tt would Hawaiian Wants New Calendar To Eliminate All Friday J3's By Kl) CKKAGII WASHINGTON MV-Those Hawaiians, who want to become citizens of our 49th state, will bear watching. Even before they're admitted to the Union they want to change our calendar all around. This far-reaching 1 proposal is made in a bill introduced by the Pacific territory's nonvoting delegate In Congress. Joseph R. Fnr- rington. If his bill were adopted, starting in 1956 the whole country would operate on a "perpetual" calendar which would do away take members that long to study lawyers' briefs on the cases. with all Friday the ijiiis. This calendar was invented by a Honolulu man, Willard E. Edwards, who says his system lias been endorsed by scientists, business leaders and other prominent persons us "Hie best timetable they have ever seen for running the world." Edwards became a calendar reformer at the ace of 15 when, as a high school boy in Quincy. Mass., he learned (hut both Julius and Augustus had stolen a day from February and added it to the months bearing their names—July and August. Young Edwards thought this was pretty sneaky on the two emperors and he -said so. He also went home and started work on a new calendar which would correct (bat ancient larceny and take a lot of confusion out of the existing way of recording days, weeks and months. Into Four Quarters For more than 30 years Edwards, now a Pearl Harbor electrical engineer, has been crusading for adoption of his "porpetual" calendar. Edwards would divide the year into four quarters of 91 days each. That adds up to 364 days. The missing day would be sandwiched in between Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. Every four years the additional leap year day would be fitted in between June 31 and July 1. Now. then: Each quarter of Edwards' year would start at the beginning of a week and end on the last day of a week. Kach month would have 'JO work days plus Sabbaths. And this tidy arrangement would continue year after yeur. Besides eliminating Friday the 13th, a day some people consider unlucky, what are the advantages? The Honolulu Star-Bulletin recently published an Interview With Edwards in which the inventor listed these: 1. The 1st and 15th of each Gitmt fro/Minx Sat "ASPIRIN™!

Numerous three-day holidays could be arranged. Christmas, for instance, would always fall on 'Sunday, so that Saturday-Sunday-Mon- dny observance could be made an annual event.
