(A Courier News I'holn Feature.) Survey Shows Truman Information Order Is Working Several Ways (Third of a Series) By JAMES DELVIN NEW YORK iff) — Five months, have elapsed now .since President Truman issued his controversial order authorizing all. non-defense as well as defense ngencie.s to label information as secret, in varying degrees. How Is it working out in actual practice? The Washington Post surveyed the -situation in each of B6 non- defense agencies and found that yie'.v utilize their n e \v authority. rV it found that- those which have u^eri it "do not know how many documents have been .buried Irom public .scrutiny by imposition of clfi-ssi fieri label. 1 ?." Truman's order, issued Sept, 21 1951, touched off anew the perennial pre.~s campaign for freedom of information. That means infor- mation, for the people, not just freedom for the press- The Post found that "many agencies exhibit a sharp awareness of the public's right to information." But others, including some that hardly would be considered centers of secret activity, were reluctant even to tell how they applied the new directive," Post Office Is N'ewslPss You might think that the Post Office doesn't have any news ex cept for annual stories on the volume of Christmas mail. But the newspaper said the Post Office "flatly refused to disclose anything the application of the order." Officials of some departments or agencies said the directive liberalized the release of news because it gave a clearer idea than heretofore of what shmilri not be kept secret. I , This was the view taken by Pres-. ] Iricnt Truman. "It is my hope," he said, "that he practical effect of these regulations will be to make more, rather than less, information available to the people." | President DcTines Order I The President defined the order as intended to protect information from "potential, enemies." But the American Society of Newspaper Editors, headed by Alexander F, Jones, executive editor of the Herald-Journal and Herald — American of Syracuse. N, Y,, protested that the net effect would be to suppress news to which the American public was entitled. The editors, in a letter to Joseph Short, the President's press secretary, said they understood that genuine ."security information should be withheld. Guarantee Asked But they asked what guarantee there was that those carrying out the order would confine it to that. They declared: I "\Ve strongly oppose an execu- j live order which formally designates each head of a government agency an authority to classify information as injurious to naiiona security without definition of what branches national security, and without appeal or review." The Associated Press Managing Editors Association, meeting in San \ Francisco last Sept. 29, described] the directive as n "rianyerous in- ' str union! of news suppression" and called on the President to rescind it. The White House took a step toward meeting one complaint — that there \vas no appeals tribunal thnt would hear protests concerting agencies which suppressed non- ecurity news. A subcommittee of the Interde- artmental Committee on Internal ecurity, the agency which drafted he original order, \vas set «y> to eep tabs on potential abuses and o hear appeals. J. Russell Wiggins of the Washington Post, chairman of The AP Managing Editors Committee on Freedom of the Press, said he did lot believe the subcommittee, leaded by Edward R.
