u Editors Hit Secrecy In Government ii 'j i ; i Stalin View On Chinese In Diaries Free Pres Held Endangered by It CHICAGO, Sept. 30 (U.R) Forty-three of the nation s lead ing newspaper editors and pub lishers Sunday adopted a stern declaration of press freedom which charged that public information is "being steadily undermined by the growing practice of secrecy in government." The declaration was made after an all-day "shirt-sleeve" forum discussion with Dr. Alberto Gainza Paz, publisher and editor of the suppressed Buenos Aires newspaper, La Prensa. Dr. Gainza Paz warned that the fame fate could befall newspapers anywhere in the Americas unless the public is aroused. The newsmen pledged themselves to fight for freedom of information throughout the Western Hemisphere but directed much of their attack to conditions at home. GROWING SECRECY The declaration said the growing secrecy in government was in evidence at "the national, state arrd local level." The statement deplored "the growing tendency of public officials to feel they are not accountable to the public; that they may seal and impound public records; that they may divulge only such information as they think is good for the people to know." The publishers and editors also took a direct crack at the order o President Truman last week Be setting up "security codes of censorship on governmental news. They said some public officials believe they can "extend 'military sppuritv' into areas of news which 'n.?e!& Detectives Find order issued within the week." -'The American people are in danger of losing their right to freedom of information by default unless they demand of their pub-Irc officials the right of free ac cess to the facts about their gov emment, the declaration ciarea.

The Cabinet meeting on September 21 was "occupied entirely with a discussion of the atomic bomb" and was clearly fundamental in the formulation of American policy on the atom. The question was presented in the form of what should be "the policy of this government in making available information in our possession to other nations." Beginning with Mr. Stimson, the President went round the table. According to Forrestal's notes, the Secretary of Commerce, Mr. Henry Wallace, was "completely, everlastingly and wholeheartedly in favor of giving it to the Russians."
