MONDAY, MARCH 28, 1955 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN Three Questions About Yalta Papers Leak Unanswered By JAMES M Alt LOW Associated Press News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — Almost two weeks after someone in the Stale Department "leaked" the Yalta papers to the New York Times there is still no answer from the department on three basic questions. Who "leaked" them? Did Secretary of State Dulles know and approve? Why, on the very day they were "leaked," were they described as nonpubllshable because they Involved national security? Dulles twice has been asked to explain the circumstances. He would not answer. Nor would his assistant secretary of state, Carl McCardle, in charge of information, when asked point-blank if he did the "leaking." There can no longer be any doubt- where the Times got the documents on the wartime Roosevelt-Churchill-Stalin conference. The newspaper Itself has said it got them from the State Department. Dulles was asked by a reporter and by Sen. Kerr (D-Okla) to explain the release of the Yalta papers. He marched away angrily from the reporter. He sat silent in front of Kerr, Question Unanswered This writer telephoned McCardle over the weekend and said: "You have twice been accused in print of being the one who 'leaked' the Yalta papers. Did you 'leak' them?" He said: "I won't answer a question like that." (Drew Pearson, syndicated columnist, has said McCardle was the "leak." Chalmers Roberts, reporter for the Washington Post and Times-Herald, said newsmen at the State Department believe McCardle did the "leaking".) On Monday, March 14, Dulles' press officer Henry Suydam, and on Tuesday, March 15, Dulles himself, told newsmen the Yalta papers could not be released for publication at this time because: They Involved national security and this country's relations with its allies. This indicated the papers were "classified" and therefore could not be made public. Given to Times But On March IS, the same day Dulles said that, the State Department gave the documents to the Times. When news of this got around the next day, Dulles released the Yalta documents to all newspapers. On March 14 Dulles had attempted to give 24 copies of the Yalta papers to designated members of Congress—while withholding- them from the press. Democrats in Congress refused the papers. They said they did not want to be accused of "leaks" if any occurred, It was after Dulles had been turned down in Congress that h(s department gave the papers to the Times. In 1953 President Eisenhower explained to government agencies, Including the State Department, the kind of documents which could be withheld from publication. This was called a "classified" list. There are three, and three only, kinds of classified material: those which fall under the heading of top secret, secret and confidential. A document which involved national security or endangered this country's relations with its allies could be classified. This writer over the weekend asked Suydam why—since he and Dulles both said the Yalta papers involved national security and Allied relationships and therefore could not be published — they were released. He was asked if they Were classified up to the moment of their release. He said no. When had they been declassified? About 30 days to two weeks before they were released, he said. Then he was asked: Why, if they were no longer classified, did he and Dulles say they couldn't be published because they involved national security and relations with the allies. Suydam said he couldn't answer that. He was asked who declassified them. He said he couldn't answer that either.

'A—Two helicopters flying a continuous shuttle service brought 93 stranded fishermen and pleasure seekers to safety yesterday. They were among more than 200 marooned overnight by high tides and rough water on Lake Marlon. Most of them — men, women and children — beached their boats on the small Islands that dot the 12-mile lake and built bonfires. All made it safely to shore yestterday. No one suffered any more than a slight case of exposure. The helicopters from Shaw Air Force Base at Sumter, S. C., effected many of Hie rescues by the Pipe-Puffing Not for Gals, Mother Says FLINT, Mich, (fi — A pretty 22- year-old nurse saw her plans for representing Michigan at the international pipe-puffing contest go up in smoke today. Her mother disapproves. Kay Kelley, a nurse at Hurley Hospital in Flint, doubtlessly would have been tabbed as a favorite at the contest in Schenectady, N. Y. She Won the Michigan championship Saturday night, outpuffing Mrs. Robert Bull, of Flint, last year's international champ. Miss Kelley Kept, ner pipe going for 36 minutes 20 seconds on the regulation 3.3 grams of tobacco. It was her first try at pipe smoking, too. "But Mother won't let me go to the contest in New York," she said. "In fact, she's simply shocked by the whole affair. She doesnt' even approve of smoking, let alone pipe smoking for girls." light of the fires. Capt. Robert L. Hess, of Philadelphia, who with MaJ. Francis M. Carney, of Doylestown, Pa., flew one hell- copter, said, "There was no panic and it was a very fine, very successful operation." Those not picked up by the hell- copters, had to wait until the water calmed down enough to allow them to bring their boats to shore. Women and children were picked up first. After all the stranded returned to shore, the helicopters flew on the lake making certain no one was left. Lt. Ronald L. Ingraham, of Bethesda, Md., flew alone in the other helicopter. Unable to land on many of the small islands because of tree stumps and bushes, the helicopters hovered overhead taking aboard the stranded by ladder. Because the lake was at a shallow level, large boats could not be used In the rescue operations. Whe n pj|g PgjpWon't Let Up Send for this Free Book WE BUY USED FURNITURE PHONE 3-3122 Wade Furn. Co.

Engineers who have been appraising our national needs figure that the bill will run over three billion dollars for the country as a whole. And that's just for physical equipment and installations—that's just for the things which make up a water supply system. What about the men who make these things function? How much should we pay for their knowledge, their experience nd, above all, their unceasing vigilance? Everything about a water works involves big money except, the renumeratior. of the men responsible for its dependable operation. Perhaps no other enterprise in America puts more solemn responsibilities upon men and pays them less for accepting them. Our people have been fortunate that so many able and conscientious men have been willing to accept these responsibilities in the face of the low financial rewards their services command. But their numbers grow fewer as the cost of living mounts. Already, water systems are finding it difficult to enroll and hold on to young men qualified for advancement to key executive jobs. The will to serve is there but it withers in the face of a dollar that has lost almost half its purchasing power in the course of a decade. Satisfaction in discharging a great public responsibility with honor unfortunately doesn't heal the house or clothe the children or buy the food for the table. If billions of dollars must be spent on plant facilities, it becomes all the more important that the men who direct these purchases and operate these facilities shall be of the highest character and ability. Can we afford not to invest thousands in human intelligence and integrity? We need to spend a few dollars more. Blytheville Water Co.
