' MONDAY, NOV. 10, 1982 Stevenson Praises Press in Speech Honoring Lovejoy ALTON, Bl. Ml — A combination ' et a sense of duty and the exercise o! the right of free speech serves fully the cause ol truth, Gov. Adlai Stevenson said Sunday at ceremonies honoring a martyr to free press.

They met two years ago and'were married last'May. Journal spoke at the dedication of a bronze plaque In the memory of Elijah P. Lovejoy, anti-slavery editor and Presbyterian minister, who was shot to death defending his presses from an Alton mob 115 years ago. . : ; It was the Democratic presiden-. tlal nominee's first public speech since his. defeat by Dvclght D. El- senhower last Tuesday. The estimated 1,000 persons greeted Stevenson with shouts and prolonged applause. •..•'. . . Both Stevenson and Bingham, but with different emphasis, weighed the- meaning the respon- sibiWies of freedom. Stevenson said Lovejoy served a cause greater than the abolition of slavery. "This greater cause the right— and the duty—of the individual to speak out for the truth," he said. "I make the reference to duty' advisedly because that , was the way. Lovejoy thought of it." ' Urges Study The -Louisville publisher urged newspapers to make "an exhaustive" self-study of their campaign performances to guard against possible abuse of freedom of the press. Bingham, noting criticism received by the press during the recent presidential campaign, said the-self-study should "determine whether Stevenson newspapers slanted their news coverage toward Stevenson and . Elsenhower "If the press failed in that way," the Louisville' publisher, who supported Stevenson in the campaign, snirl, "it would be far better for us to expose ourselves, and try to avoid, it in the future." The Illinois governor said Love- Joy saw the problem "in terms of what he felt obliged to-say. riot merely on what 1 he might be entitled >to say. 'The distinction is an Important-one; and only those who observe the one as well as claim the "other serve fully the cause oi truth." , Some Alton, residents did not have confidence of truth in 1837, Stevenson said. "Some of bur fellow citizens ol America do'not have that confidence .today." The dedication ceremonies were sponsored .'by Sigma Delta Chi, professional journalistic fraternity. . S.

Germany To Pay Debt To Israel Eisenhower Wilt Find Korean War Unlike Europe Experiences Bjr ELTON C, FAT WASHINGTON «_ in K ore a, where h« plans to seek a means of ending the stalemated war, Dwlght D: Elsenhower will find a battle utterly unlike the continent- encompassing campaign he commanded in Europe. In any effort to end the deadlocked conflict, he must pattern plans to situations he never encountered as the supreme commander of the Western Allies. The European campaign of World War IT. was a war of movement, of slashing toward, of constantly fluid situations, Korea for almost a year and a half has been a war of ; fixed positions, almost the trench fighting of World War I. The battle of Europe was won on the ground with divisions' arid corps and armies moving In mass,' supported by swarms of planes, columns of tanks, a multitude of artillery. Korea is Indian-style fighting. Individual, close-in, at carbine range, with the trench knife and bare hands often the weapons. ' The United states divisions alone in Elsenhower's combined Euro- ixsan command numbered more than half a hundred. There are seven American divisions on the Korean front, six Army and one Marine.' As the European Var reached its peak, the front extended virtually from the Baltic to the Med- aiterraneah Se. The' Korean front is only 155 miles long, pinched across the waist of a peninsula, with scant maneuver space to the rear.,. Available to' him' in the European theater were more than 10.000 American warplanes — including 5,000 fighters. 1,800 B17s and B24s (then rated as heavy bombers), 1,100 medium bombers and other craft. The total air •trenjrth In Korea la secret but probably is substantially less than '• thousand combat aircraft. • A major factor In the Victory in Europe, perhaps the-decisive factor, w»» strategic air war — the crippling or destruction of the enemy'a supplies and means .of production to wage war. There Is no true strategic air war In the Asiatic conflict. The munitions used by the Chinese and North Korean Communists come from outside North Korea—from Russia, which ]» not * belligerent; from Communist China, which under the ground rules set up by the United Nations may not be attacked. Even the altainment of a truce differs vastly. At the end, the Nazi legions crumbled quickly and surrendered to Elsenhower's forces in hordes, unconditionally. Truce talks In Korea have been going on and on, for more than a year and » quarter. ' When Eisenhower fought the "crusade In Europe 1 'It was, as nearly as war can be, a "popular'' war at home. The Korean War Is not. . ' Eisenhower, the supreme commander of Western forces in Europe, had wholehearted Allied tup- port In most strategy and policy. The TJ.N. Allies in the Korean War hsve measured out their combat contributions carefully and worried lest United States strategy or policy might spread the conflict. Casualties Identified WASHINGTON UK— The Defense Department today identified 235 battle casualties In Korea In a new list (No. 689) that reported 61 killed, 162 wounded,' three missing and nine injured. BONN, Germany (;F)—West Germany has. defied an Arab threat of economic boycott, and said she will stick by her agreement to pay ' Israel ,715 million dollars in ren.. arations. " • The German-Israeli Pact, to repay part pi.the Jewish losses fronO Nazi persecution, brought a .stern. warning last week from Egyptian: Premier .Mohamed Naguib that the! seven-nation Arab League would! consider the payment aid to an enemy and. would take drastic countermeasures. The Arab states' technically still are at war with Israel. , Authoritative government sources here said Bonn's replying that Germany would stick by the agreement with the Jews and the Bonn Parliament soon would 'ratify' it. 1952 'Crusade' Campaign to Open NEW YORK <3V-The Crusade for Freedom's 1952 campaign opens tomorrow night with a. four-network, coast-to-coa»t radio program featuring President-elect Dwight D Elsenhower and his defeated Democratic opponent,' Adlai E.
