In a note signed by Secretary ol State George C. Marshall and delivered to the Soviet embassy, this government in effect gave Ihe Soviets another lecture on freedom of the press in the United States and compared it with censorship in the Soviet Union. . Furthermore, it said there was no suggestion in the magazine article that the United States "should take the initiative in attacking the Sn- Tiet union or any other country," as charged by the Russians. "The American attitude concerning the function of the press has been made clear to the Soviet government at numerous meetings JE various agencies of the United Nations at which the question of the freedom of the press has been discussed," the department sain. "It is a tradition in tills country that th« public press shall serve as a forum for the discussion of all questions of public concern. "Any attempt on the part of the government of the United states to control or suppress articles of this type .appearing in the public press would be a violation of the right of freedom of Die press which » guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States."
