TWO EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MO* THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 1955 Dial PA-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker Keeping 'Classified 9 Data From Public Said Costly Report Cites Annual Cost Million )ug Tot's Grave: ••: WASHINGTON — (INS) - Government agencies spend more than two aijd one-half million dollars a year to keep restricted information from the public. Subjects -of such "classified" data range from top defense secrets to information on private busi ness operations. A congressional report, based on replies from 63 federal departments'-and agencies to a questionnaire on handling of secret papers, cited such authority as the constitution and a long series of laws for curbs on information. Hearings Open Monday The report was released yesterday by the House Government Information subcommittee as a prelude to public hearings on the issue of freedom of information, which open next Monday. The subcommittee is headed by Rep. John E. Moss (D-Calif.). The compilation of replies from agencies :also revealed that the Office of Defense Mobilization, in cooperation with other departments of government, is now drafting plans for a "wartime office of censorship" to function in any new major emergency. Tabulation of the questionnaires revealed that 25 departments and • agencies spend a total of $2,791,870 a year on their individual security programs. . This figure does not include the ' super-secret Central Intelligence Agency which said it could not disclose its costs on classification of documents because this work , "is an integral part of the overall security control of the agency." Barred By Law The CIA added that it is barred by law from giving even titles or salaries of its officials. Biggest spender on work to classify information or reports as secret or confidential, according to the congressional study, is the Atomic Energy Commission. It listed its annual expenses for "document control" as $1,700;000. AEC said the figure does not include "costs of secretarial handling of documents, record-keeping systems, transportation of lop secret documents by courier, and physical protection for classified .material." The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, which handles secret aviation research, reported spending $250,000 annually for security controls. The Defense Department was next in line, with $157,000. Next came Civil Defense. $157,000; the Agriculture Department, $126,194; the State Department, $82,000; and the Justice Department, $80,000. •" '"' : The Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commerce Department both told the 'Moss subcommittee that they withhold information obtained from private j individuals and corporations on a confidential basis. But they said they try -to make ther findings marizing data received. GOP Women Set Fund Campaign 11I& iJJCCU VL -IV JV*IUtO VII mv.

LONDON l/fl — The archbishop of Canterbury denied last night :hat the Church of England had brought pressure on Princess Margaret to give up Peter Townsend. The archbishop, Dr. Geoffrey Fisher, ranking prelate of the An- gelican -Church,''made his statement on a television program of Lhe government-sponsored British Broadcasting Corp. He broke his silence on the Margaret-Townsend romance, terminated by the Princess because of the Anglican ban on the remarriage of divorced persons, after some sections of the press had called for disestablishing the state church. As the archbishop spoke,'audiences' at London movie theaters were hissing newsreel scenes showing him at a.recent opera performance. Townsend, a Royal Air Force group captain, divorced his wife in 1952 on grounds of adultery. Commentator Richard Dimbleby commented during the TV show that some people regard- the church as timid in its attitude toward divorce. "Timid?" asked the archbishop. "We are fighting against a great popular wave of stupid emotion, and. we are winning the batlle."
