The ordinance would bar trucks of larger than three- quarter tons from the park's parking area and .set aside a Charges Ike's Aides Withhold Information WASHINGTON —(Al— Sen. Thomas C. Hennings Jr. (D- Mo) said Saturday present Eisenhower's views on freedom of Information are commendable but are not followed by his subordinates. Referring to questions raised at recent presidential news conferences about the withholding of information from Congress by executive agencies, Hennings said: "It is impossible for me to reconcile the President's stated position with the position taken by the Attorney Genera! and other officials in his administration." "Oamases Security" Hennings is chairman of the , Senate Constitutional Rights Subcommittee which has en gaged in a study of the withholding of information from Congress and the public. He quoted Elsenhower as saying on July 1 that "when the executive determines that something . . . damages the -security of the United States or its vital interest, then it withholds information that possibly could be put out." The President also said, Hennings went on, that " using my own conscience on the natter and when such things as these come to me for decision, I shall continue to do so." Matters Don't Reach Him "What the President said makes a certain amount of sense," Hennings said, "but the trouble is that very few such matters pertaining to the use of the so-called executive privilege ever actually reach him for decision." Hennings said that under Atty. Gen. William P. Rogers interpretation of the doctrine of executive privilege, practically everyone in the executive branch can cite it as authority for withholding information from Congress. "Most cases never even get up to the cabinet level for a decision, much less to the President himself," Hennings said.

CD Booklet Now Available A 31-page booklet containing instructions for building and stocking shelters against atomic radiation fallout is available for the asking at the* police station. City Civil Defense Director LeRoy C. Jenkins described the booklet, "The Family Fallout Shelter," as the finest he has seen to date. He has 10,000 copies to be given to the public.

Plans for five basic fallout shelters are contained in the book — including a concrete block shelter which can be constructed as a do-it-yourself project for between $150 and $200.
