It was at the New York premiere of "The Sound of Music" lhal Darryl Zanuck realized he had succeeded in restoring 20th Century-Fox to prosperity. After 91 weeks in U.S. release, the film had played 290 theaters and was still in 21 of them. The ful — 10 full network hours this season — that the entire Desilu Culver Studio had to be rented for the production overflow. Employment is at an all-time high: 4,000. So is the company's gross income: $211,54,000 — $15 million higher than any other film company. Profits for the last (iscal year: $12,199,000, The secret of the Zanuck operation? It appears to be the canniness of an old-lime showman in guessing what the public wants to see, plus the readiness to gamble high stakes on topnotch attractions. "People want fun when tdey go to the theater," says Richard Zanuck, interpreting his father's philosophy. "We intend to give them fun." AN PA Vetoes Any Press Restrictions NEW YORK (AP) - The American Newspaper Publishers^ Association, in a report two years in the making, says it could npl support any agreement "of control or restrictions on ; the accurate reporting of criminal matters or anything which would impair such reporting." The report was drawn up by a 12-man committee headed by D. Tcnnant Bryan, publisher of the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch & News Leader. "The people's right to know is one of Our most fundamental rights, and neither the press nor the bar has the right to sit down an| bargain it away," the report said. speeded up last October when an American Bar Association study group recommended that in pending criminal cases police, prosecutors and defense attorneys be barred from making public "potentially prejudicial information." Since then, judges and police officers have been issuing new rules telling the press what crime information news ^media will be permitted to have and what procedures must be followed in news reports of arrests and trials. The ANPA study called the Warren Commission charge "unwarranted." "In that crisis on Nov. 22, 1963," the study said, "the American press was called upon lo carry out its responsibility to the people — to tell them not only what had happened, but how the country met the crisis. It was these facts provided by the American press that steadied a reeling nation and American press "The committee does recommend that the press stand at any time ready to discuss these problems with any appropriale individuals or groups. Indeed, such posilive action can be a far greater force for Ihe cause of juslice and Ihe general welfare of the people than the negative force of restrictions on basic freedoms. "But there can be no agreement on the part of the American press to dilute its responsibility or to circumvent the basic rights and provisions of the Constitution. To agree lo any of . . . . . , , these things would be a mock- ""ajonty opinion eight to one, 5 to I makes it clear that the courts trial by an impartial jury. 2. The presumption of some members of the bar that pretrial news is intrinsically prejudicial is based on conjecture and not on fact. 3. To fulfill its function, a free press requires not only freedom to print witllbut prior restraint but also free and uninhibited access to information that should be public. 4. There are grave inherent dangers to the public in Ihe restriction or censorship at the source of news, among them, secret arresl and ultimately secret trial. 5. The press is a positive i& fluence in assuring fair trial. 6. The press has a responsibility to allay public fears am dispel rumors by the disclosure of fact. 7.

Taking up the Sheppard case, Ihe report said: "It should be pointed out, however, that here the courl was dealing wilh Ihe unusual and nol lypical case, and Ihe cry of the guarantee made the people of this republic by its Founding Fathers. "The freedom of the press is a fundamental right and it cannot be'abridged. The press shares law re- with the bench, bar, enforcement officials and the words are meant to apply to what the trial judge in the Sheppard case should have done, not what every judge should do in every case. It is obvious that there is no mandate in the Sheppard case for judges across the land." * * * The report drew 10 conclusions. They were: 1. There is no real conflict guarantees" a" free between Ule Firtst Amendment Sixth Amendment 1 guaranteeing a free press and the Sixth Amendment which guarantees a speedy and public sponsibility for preservation of the American liberties embodied in the First and Sixth Amendments."

There can be no codes or covenants which compromise the principles of the Constitu tion. 10. The people's right to a free press, which inherently embodies the right of the people to know, is one of our most funda mental rights and neither the press nor the bar has the righl to sit down and bargain it away, Despite the increased popularity of the motorcycle in the United States since World War II, production of these vehicles has not reached the level ol 1913, when 70,000 motorcycles were produced in this country.

Kennedy, was applauded by the Associated Press Managing Editors Association arid Sigma Delta Chi, national journalistic society. The Warren Commission report charged the American press with "irresponsibility and lack of self discipline." ;Since the study began, the question of fair trial reached a pinnacle last spring with the freeing of Samuel H.
