Defense Secretary James Forres- tol says he u "interested" in voluntary security measures and, according to a spokesman, is considering the possibility of asking a press advisory committee to consider the matter. The Air Policy Commission avoided Ihe word censorship. II said: "Whatever the difficulties or objections, the commission believes that continuing and rigid enforcement of wartime security measures with regard to advanced aeronautical development is necessary now." proposing an overhauling of "our policies as to military secrecy," the commission said "details ol our new •ir equipment and technical Information as to our applied research •nd development which should be kept secret are often released to the preis.

On the other hand, the commis- •ion said. Americans are not fully Informed on the "dangers of the military situation that they are facing and of the preparation they •ught to make to defend thern- telves." It snid foreign governments have facto on these matters. Military lenders figure a law on the subject would (conflict with the bill of rights. They [eel an agency •omea-hat like lhat headed by Byron Trice during the war might be unacceptable In peacetime. That leaves self-policing by the press un«« criteria set up by the military »nd a press advisory committee.

Book Contradicts Reports The problem of what security Information is may be exemplified in the Air Policy Commission report Itsell. No reporter could gel Irani the Air Force the current active strength of that service because it would indicate the nation's combat, potential. But the commission disclosed that the Air Farce at present has about 560 heavy bombers and 2.300 lighters included 1n an active 10,800 aircraft, Another problem is that of information on specific aircraft being withheld or only partially given out on security grounds. Reporters 10 this day are told that the radically- designed six-jet XB-4T bomber "in the 500 mile class," But in a book, "They Tamed the Sky," by Douglas J. Ingells, published in November 1047, Brig. Gen. L. C. Craigie, then the Air Forces engineering chief at Wright Field, O.. is quoted: ". . .The Boeing XB-47 having a radically swept back wing which . . . permits speeds of near 600 miles per hour/' Six hundred is a lot different from 500 in this case, as tiny foreign government \voiild know.

He wanted an individual line because the Parkers do a lot of telephoning. But no individual lines were available because of shortages, so he took a party line instead. Now Mr. Parker is wondering ... "A party line... hum-m-m... what kind of service...?" Party-line service is good service. It'i »imply » service you share with ncigrrbori and they share with you. Of course, you can't call while someone else is using the line, but on the other hand, no one else can call while you'r* using it, either— so it's "even Stephen"! Party-line service is best when conversations are kept reasonably short so everyone has a chance to call—or be called. A little thoughtfulness of the other fellow, « little practice of the golden rule do wonders on a party line. One of these days, when we've provided service for everyone waiting and there's enough equipment, we'll be around with those individual lines Mr. Parker and hundreds of oilier folks would like to have.
