Morse Ind-Ore) has charged that much of the nation's press is distorting he news and has urged the American Society of Newspaper Editors o "ponder it well." "The people are losing' confi- denqe in the objectivity and accuracy of the American press," Morse told the Senate Thursday in a debate on Hell's Canyon dam project in Idaho. He said he has been "smeared" 'or being what he called a liberal. During debate In 1947 on the Taft-Hartley Labor Relations bill, Worse said, he made a speech in which he questioned the scientific accuracy of public opinion polls. "I answered the arguments that all the polls of public opinion showed that public opinion seemed o support the Taft-Hartley bill," he said. Tells of Speech Without quoting the actual lan- :uage he used in the 1947 speech, Morse • said: "In that 1947 speech I said 'if I were satisfied that every man and woman in the state of Oregon wanted me to vote for this bill, I would still vote against it, because it will not carry out the objectives that the voters in my state believe He continued: "From that 2V6 hour speech, Mr. President, the only thing the Associated Press got into the newspapers in my state was this: " 'Morse says that if every man and woman in the state of Oregon wanted him to vote for this bill, he still would vote against the bill.' " "Not one word did the AP put out in that story to give the true picture of the position the senator Sabres Down Four Red Jeto In Air Battles By STAJT SEOUL /P-tJ. S. Sabre jet pilots down four Communist MIO els and probably destroyed another today while Allied fighter-bombers plastered tied positions on the Korean front. y Capt. Manuel 3, Fernandez Jr., one of the five U. S. double aces of the Korean war, bagged his eleventh MIO, On the ground, the Chinese Reds mrled 1,000 men against five West Korean hills, overran part of one key height, then scurried back to heir own lines in the fare of savage Allied counterattacks. Troops of the U. S. 7th Division defended four of the five outoosts. The Communist attacks'* late Thursday night and before dawn Friday were against the same hills north and west of Chorwon which 4,000 or more Chinese hit three weeks ago. Chinese Attack Two hundred Chinese swept down the slopes of Old Baldy, which the Reds wrested from U. N. forces three weeks ago, and broke through American barbed wire entanglements on West View, a main position adjoining Baldy. Fighting hand to hand with bayonets and grenades, the Americans ousted the Chinese and the Reds fell back to their lines on Old Baldy. Thirty-one Chinese bodies were counted on West View and the ridge leading to It from Baldy. Estimates of enemy casualties in other fights were not available. Some 150 to 175 Reds hit Pork Chop Hill, a few hundred yards east of Baldy. The other Red attacks were against Outpost Yoke and Outpost Arsenal in the T-Bone Hill complex and against a South Korean outpost just north of White Horse Hill. Hit Empty Positions The Reds also charged furiously up a sixth outpost hill which was wholly unoccupied. Communist infantrymen swarmed up Upper Al- ^igator Jaw, east of the T-Bone complex, with burp guns, and rifles behind a heavy artillery and mortar barrage. They shot it up for 30 minutes and finally pulled back to their own lines rather than occupying the deserted hill. Just outside Panmunjom, where the Allies told the Communists today they were willing to resume full-scale armistice negotiations, a Red loudspeaker boomed out Thursday night: "Here's wishing you luck on the peace talks and hope you go home soon. Allied guns fired at the loudspeaker .and there were no more speeches. from Oregon took in his speech. Cmoplains of AP I have received that sort oi treatment from the AP time and time again since I have been a member of the Senate. They have twisted and distorted the position I^have taken, or they have so editorialized my statements in their stories that they have done me great damage in my state because people read the story and because they saw the initials 'AP' at the head of the story they assumed that the story was accurate." Morse's 1947 speech was delivered June 5. The AP account of June 5 said: "Senator Morse told the Senate he will vote against the bill and to sustain a veto, if one comes. "He said he would do so even if 'every person in the state of Oregon' wanted it to become law. "Morse contended it will 'be causative, not preventive, of labor difficulties' and added that Congress would be 'more honest' by simply repealing present laws intended to protect the right of workers to organize."
