ARKANSAS riMIS, Foyttttvill*. ArkvntM, Friday, April II, 1952' Editors Surprised To Learn Truman Thinks Seizure Of Newspapers And Radios Possible If He Considered It Would Best Serve Nation Washington -IIP}- Editors today hoped for White House clarifica- 4ion of. President Truman's news conference remark which implied he felt he had the right to seize newspapers and radio stations, as he did the steel industry, if it would best serve the country. Some of the editors who were among the 520 newsmen' present at the.conference yesterday pro- tested afterward that such The HUFFY MOWER is Really FUN to RUN I. Easy. No effori.

PHONE 12 lower exists the nation Is close to dictatorship. The issue was touched off when lie president was asked this quesion: If it is proper to seize the steel mills, can you in your opinion, seize, the newspapers and radio stations?" Truman replied that under sim- lar circumstances, the president of the United States has to act for whatever is for the best of the country. That is the answer, he idded. Many editors promptly interacted this as implying, if not specifically claiming, the power to ;eizc newspapers and radio stations as he .seized the strike- hreatened steel industry last week. In the noise of the crowded conference room, some reporters understood Truman .to say definitely that he has such power, but a re-check indicated his reply was noi that direct. Say Answer Unfortunate Reactions of ortillors here attending the annual meeting of the American Society of Newspaper Editors Asne, many of whom were al Ihe news conference, ranged from cries o£ distilorship to belief Ihc answer was merely unfortunate. Sample comments: E: K. Gaylord of the Daily Oklahoman · and Oklahoma City Times: "If the president could do t h a t (seize newspapers), we're pretty close to dictatorship." Alexander F. Jones, ASNE president and editor of the Syracuse, N. Y., Herald-Journal: "If he has the power to seize sleel mills, newspapers and radio, I see no reason why he does not have Ihe right to seize farms on the basis that the cost of food it too high." Lester Markel, Sunday editor, New York Times: "The steel mills are not orjrans of public opinion, but the newspapers are." Norman E. Isaacs, Louisville Times: "As between sleel and may h»vt bttn phr«»*4 uiJertu- nately, but th* presidiHt «niwtrt* in an tvtn mort unfortunate manlier." CUulfr Order RetilM The incident recalled the reaction that followed Truman's order to government ajencies to "classify" information available for publication. He nave elvlllin agencies--outside thi Defense Department and the Statf Department, which already had trie poxver--right to withhold from publication my information they sercftt" or "confi* consider "top dcntial." Newspaper editors at that time attacked the move as « blow to freedom of thi prest, ityirig it could lead to covering up of mistakes by classifying Information about such things as "top secret." Yesterday's news conference, the 300th sine* Truman beciime president, was on the.whole j(ood- natured, with frequent Uughter. Atomic Energy Sponges May Help Fight Cancer While Sulphur Springs, W.
