TBUBBDAT, JULY 9, 1983 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Propaganda or Information? State Department Puzzler WASHINGTON (AP) — That's the difference between information and propaganda can be a thin line, sometimes practically invisible, is illustrated by President's Committee on International Information Activities. Not that this was the committee's intention. It expressed great distaste for words and phrases like "cold war" and "psychological warfare" and "propaganda." It doesn't want them used in connection with this country's overseas Information program. But a person on the receiving end, after reading what the com- *mittee says, may,have difficulty distinguishing between information that is strictly information and information that might be considered propaganda. The committee has been occupied with the problem of making friends and influencing: people abroad ever since it held its first meeting last January, after President Eisenhower created it. Headed by William H. Jackson, a. New York investment banker, the committee has just turned over to Eisenhower a number of recommendations, most of which have been kept secret and a few of which have been made public. The committee said: " 'Cold war' and .'psychological warfare 1 are unfortunate terms. They do not describe the effort of our nation and our allies to build a world of peace and freedom. "They should tie discarded in favor of others which describe our true goals. New terms are needed to express the solidarity of freedom-loving men and women everywhere." So terms like "cold war" and "psychological warfare" may dis- Flight Packs Aid Handicapped DALLAS Cff) — The flight packs you thumb through to while away park of the time on air trips may have been prepared by physically handicapped persons. Year-round employment is being given to three handicapped persons by a national airline with headquarters in Dallas through a contract with Goodwill Industries, a Community Chest agency. The workers assemble 30,000 flight packs a month. Each cellophane bag contains items such as maps, luggage s.tickers, post cards and travel information. appear from the language of gov. eminent officials. But what is this information program—it's been in operation for years already—and what will It attempt to do as a result of the committee's recommendations? The committee explained: "The primary and overriding purpose of the information program should be to submit evidence to the peoples of other' nations that their own aspirations for freedom, progress and peace are SUP' ported and advanced by the objectives and policies of the United States. "The efforts of all media—radio, press, and publications, motion pictures, exchange of persons, and libraries and information centers- should be directed to this end: to show the identity of our goals with those of other peoples." . This seems to say the committee wishes to depend strictly on Information in dealing with the minds of people overseas, for it clearly stated in its recommendations that a "propagandist note" should be avoided. But if the basic purpose of the information program isn't to win friends for this country, and away from Russia, what is it? The committee seemed to agree this was the basic purpose, for it added a phrase: "These goals and desires which we hold in common must be explained in ways that will cause others to join with us in achieving em." An Englishman or Frenchman, reading the first part of what the committee said the program's purpose is, might feel: "I'm going to receive strictly objective information that will let me make up my own mind." But when he reads that addi- -ional phrase, that this information must be explained to him in * way that will "cause" him to adopt the American viewpoint, he may ask: "When will this information be information only and when will it be propaganda, since propaganda is information of a kind intended to cause people to think along certain lines or adopt a special viewpoint?"
