IU-14 A FREE WORLD PRESS Freedom of the press has boon a basic American principle from the beginning of this nation. But freedom to exchange 7ie\vs, closely related to the basic idea, has ' been slower in finding acceptance, Although generally practiced now in this country, the principle is still L'ar from general ' realization abroad. Now that Congress is interesting itself in, the mat- tor, more rapid, progress is expected. A resolution submit led to the House by'.Representative Fulhright would put legislators on record as "believing that the unhindered interchange of independent news would promote a better understanding among nations and thus help present future wars," ^Representative Martin of Massachusetts, in a statement typical of the congressional attitude generally, declares that he is not only for a fret 1 press, but also a Free radio, at all times, and wants the United States to se! an example accordingly. A measure now in the hands of the foreign affairs committee, with a reasonable assurance of passing, maintains that the unhindered interchange of independent news "will promote a better understanding among' nations and thus help prevent future" 1 wars." It favors international agreements guaranteeing . throughout 'the world "the right ol' all ficcredited p'' and radio representatives to write, transmit and publish the news without private or governmental interference and at uniform communication rates." This would 1)0 an enlightening and -civilizing procedure of great value. 20 Years Ago Dorothy Jonnii-, Edward MHxilnuskns, George Nelson, Emily Lobdell, and Helen O'Brion were among the seniors for the year 1923-2-1 nt Nau{ tuck high school who had n perfect attendance at classes. o—O—o Ann Durkin of Hgighlnnc) avenue was given n farewell party at the home of Margaret Cormley of Gorman street.

' Dumbarton Oaks Conferees Would Avoid Power Politics Predict Nelson Will Not Return To WPB Top Spot Special to Central I'ress WASHINGTON—After two week, of intensive discussions, the thrc 1 western ''powers at Dumbarton Oaks conference have agreed "ii principle" on the part that th largo and small powers will pla\ in main-lining peace during post-war years. That such far-reaching agr jnent has been reached is a tribute to the desire on the part of 'Russia Croat Britain and the Unitcc tt-tes to avoid the.kinr] of powci politics that has lud to two \vorld wars v,'ithin n generation. However, it must be borne in mind that the Dumbarton Oakt agreements- are preliminary and pertain only to the 'technical' problems of a post-war organization to keep the peace. Before any such organization becomes a reality, iu must be approved by. the many little nations which so. far have had nothing to say as to the part they.will play in the organization. ATTIJ, even after concurrence of these smaller powers, the Senate must ratifv the agreements. It remains a long, hard road— a road beset with problems on every side, and not the smallest of these is t.hc fact that such an organization is in the throes of formation during a political campaign year in the United States. RUMORS AND PREDICTIONS as to the future of War Production Chairman Donold Nolsnn. nnw in China tin a presidential mission, are flying thick and fast on the banks of the Potomac, It is considered . almost certain that thu former Scars-Roebuck' executive will no: take over the WPB rolns again when he returns to ihe United States.. Nolson's associates consider it highly probable thru he will remain in government service in somn capacity, however, and just what that will be has Washington playing a guessing game. Sume sources suggest i-hat Nelson will replace 'War Mobilize!' Jajnos F. 15yrnos, who reportedly i« going to resign his post after tbu November elections. Other rumors say that Nelson will be tendered some foreign post, perhaps that of a roving ambassador for Uio, president. Kis mission to China marks the second timn he has been given "foreign duty" by Mr. Roosevelt, His first -foreign assignment \vas his trip to Russia last year.

ORGANIZED LABOR suffered .1 heavy dofoat in the passage in the senate of the George bill for postwar demobilization, a defeat which •vas accentuated by the refusal of ihc House-In liberalize its provisions fbi\ employment and jobless insurance during the war-to- pcnce transition. Ir. fact, a coalition of republicans and conservative Democrats tho House ways and means com- nittno, further restricted the federal government's role in post-war •cconviirsion by lashing the George bill practically in half. Regardless of what action finally is taken on tho;?liill by Congress, a new attempt'.; is 1 expected to be made to enact niovo liberal legislation to take cure of unemployed war workers. . .^.,L.
