MMPWIST MKANSAS TUMI. feyMMvW*. M*mm, W«*Mi4*y, April M, Iff] Newspapers Must Do Better Job Of Hiking Publk Realize What Federal Censorship Of News Means, Missouri Editor Warns Ntw York-(/P)-Newspapers "must do a better gelling job" to m»ke the people realize what "civilian censorship in our government" means to them, the American Newspaper Publishers Association w»s told yesterday. Robert M. White 11, editor and general manager at the Mexico, Mo., Ledger, spoke of the newspapers Tiaving the "real job" of telling the people about President Truman's executive order of last September · allowing civilian departments of government to hold back information on security grounds. While said in a prepared speech that civilian censorship is a "sickening body blow" to freedom of the press. The Missouri editor presided at · meeting for publishers of dailies with circulations of less than 10,000. Another meeting was being held at the same time for publishers of dailies with circulations between 10,000 and 50,000. The ANPA sessions, part of annual Newspaper Week, opened here yesterday. ·While most newspapers denounced the president's order said White, "the people as a whole-- · the real losers in this matte- of civilian censorship--did not denounce it." .. He said he concluded that "you and I as newspapermen have failed to make the case clear to the American people." : "Civilian censorship hit us in the pocketbook," he continued. "Newspaper circulation was never stronger. Readership was never . better. Advertisers with any other medium. "Why should *e start a fight?" He added: "There is only one reason: Our service to our readers is no longer complete ... And the particular service that the reader has now been denied by our government is the most basic one of all: How the politicians are (pending the people's money and using the people s power. In other words, a degree of democracy, itself, is at stake." · White said the newspapers "must get across to the people that they are the losers--not the newspapers." "Blank Slory" A device used on one newspaper, he said, was to run a "blank story" on page one--white space at the foot of which was an editor's note referring readers-to an editorial about "the' censored story not there for you to read." White said he passed along the idea "in the hope it may stimulate you to do the real job--the job I know newspapers can. do V- in helping the people realize what civilian censorship means to them." ' . Government censorshiy w a s touched on by other speakers at the ANPA sessions. ' · . Charles F. McOahill.i general manager of the Cleveland News, and president of the ANPA, spoke briefly at the meeting for publishers of newspapers with circulations 50,000. of between 10,000 and "Shiping at newspapers seems to be a major sport," McCahill said in. a prepared address.

D., Herald, presided and delivered an address prepared for the same meeting. Freedom of the press, he said, was among the many problems faced by publishers and presents "never - ending challenges that must be met constantly." "The. right of people to know what their governments are do ing, what is going oh in lesse political divisions down to th lowliest precinct, is being chal lenged today as never before, Dppegard said. Op'pegard said among othe problems was the continued "up ward trend in wage scales, partic ularly in-the mechanical depart ments; and new typesetting proc esses in shops recognizing unions where the unions demand con tracts "limiting the use, and there fore the potential benefits of thes new techniques." He said that in addition to find ing improved production methodb publishers face the problem offsetting the mounting cost their business by evolving i ways to increase revenues.

West Emma, Springdale last Main, Siloam Springe ftGw/ftO Give the little lady a/ hand fipms ad is addressed to husbands -X husbands who've yearned for the thrill of sitting behind a broad hood packed with horsepower--and the pride of rolling down the street in a car that tells t h e world, "Mere's a man who knows the finest thing on wheels." But husbands have wives. And wives have been known to say, "No big ears for me. They're too hard to handle," Well, we have on answer for that one. It's a ROADMASTHR with Buick's new Power Stccring.t And Power Steering takes over nny time the steering gets tough-works like a helping hand- reduces the effort of turning tiic wheel of a car at a standstill to about the ssimc effort it takes to pick up a mink coat. B UT out on the open highway-with a clear straight stretch before you- your hands still have command of the whccl-you can feel that sure, firm, easy and eager responsiveness that's a part of the fun of driving. The rest of the fun is in something else that's new this ycar-the highest horsepower that a Buick Fireball Engine has ever delivered - and an Airpowcr carburetor that lets loose an extra reserve of power when needed, tmd still adds extra milts to your cruising range on each tankful of gas. So we suggest a family demonstration. You'll both like the hushed and restful silence of this superbly ublc traveler. You'll like the harmonious beauty of its interior, and the deep arid luxurious softness of its scats. You'!} like the velvet-gloved grip of its Wide-Band brakes, and the most capacious trunk in Buick history. \ou'll like the smooth surge of Dynaflow Drive, and you'll like-but why waste time talking, when you could be finding out more than we can ever tell you? I low about making a date to do that right now? \Ueli »»l. imwMriri. Mm a ahrr. IVA,/, .,,/,«,,», opiionnl ai alrf DM!
