This is put most clearly in a letter writ ten by a Florida newspaper executive recently to an official who sought to withhold information. Parts of the letter are quoted: "It it most difficult for me to believe that you, as a public official, apparently subscribe to t h e same theorira of government which led to the revolt of the Amerf- en colonies--thone theoriets being that the people accept the justice and pay the taxes dealt out to them by those in power vith very little voice in either the procedure or the final results. "It ilso is most frightening to t h i n k thtt our American school system is under the direction of t h i n k i n g of this kind. (The official in question was a superintendent of public instruction). "Twice during our telephone conversation, you informed me t h a t you had given Mr. Sumner {A Tampa Tribune reporter) certain facts and figures of the school budget, much as »ome ancient prince--or modern dictator--might adopt this atitude in their dispensing of information concerning their public offices, and I feel impelled to comment on it. All the news of your office as school superintendent--including ail the facts and figures of the school budget--Is not yours to give out. Neither does this news belong to the reporter or the newspaper. All the flews of your office--as wall as nl| : the news of every other public office in America--belongs only to the people. The only thing you have to give is your cooperation in seeing that all the news of your office i*tcne« the people promptly and accurately. The newspaper is only a vehicle to carry the news to the people. "The s t a t e of Louisiana recently adopted a now law banning secret meetings and secret business on t h e part of t h e i r public officials. A similar law is now before the California legislature, which reads: " 'The people of this state do not yield their sovereignty to the agencies whrch serve them. The people, in delegating authority, do not give their public servants the right to decide what is good for the people to know and what is not good for them to know. The pennle insist on remain- fng informer! FO t h a t they may retain control over the i n s t r u m e n t s t h e v have created.'

THE WASHINGTON Merry-Go-Round ·r DREW Washington--Molt d r a m a t i c of the many post-midnight huddles during the rough-tough Democratic convention took place between 4 a. m. and 6 a. m. at the Congress Hotel Friday in protest against the so-called alliance hctween the big city bosses and the Dlxlecrats. Held just seven hours before the presidential balloting was to begin, the huddle also was aimed at stopping Adlsl Stevenson. Neither Senator Kefauver nor Avercll Harriman was present but mojl of thoir followers were, including Gael Sullivan. Sen. Hubert Humphrey of Minnesota, Congressman Chet Holafield of California, Paul Fitzpatrick, Democratic chairman of New York, liep. franklin Roosevelt Jr., Cov. "S«apy" Williams of Michigan, Sen. Blair Moody of Michigan, Walter Reuther of th» United Auto Workers, and Sen. Paul Douglas of Illinois As the meellnB opened, Reuther growled at Senator Douglas for claiming there was an alliance between Governor Stevenson and the big city bosses. "You've got yourself in an untenable position." snapped Reuther. "You started out with control of the convention hut finally lost it," he added, referring to the fact that Douglas' candidate. Kefruver, had the largest number of convention votes. Senator Douglas »aid nothing. He let Reuther talk. "I'm not going to let anybody put a Dixle- rral label on a candidate that labor supports," Reuther snapped. Finally, Senator Douglas very softly replied: "Do you meln to say it was not a big city boss- Dixlecrat alliance that seated Virginia? he' asked. "Do you think we did wrong in trying to keep Virginia from being seated?" "It isn't a question of right or wrong," said Reuther. "I thought that I was doing a constructive job of breaking up an alliance of Dixiecrats and big city bosses.' Douglas replied. "But if there li not agreement on that, then there is no use of my staying in this meeting," and he left. * * * Young Congressman Roosevelt, however, did not share Retither's view. When someone in the pre-dawn huddle suggested that they go to Governor Stevenson and ask him whether he approved the alliance between the Dixiecrats and the big city bosses formed to obtain his nomination, TOR, Jr., shot back: "To hell with t h a t : There is no use contacting people about their views. Let their actions speak lor themselves. Adlai Stevenson has to live with himself. If his conscience can stomach this unholy alliance of Jake Arvey and Senator Byrd, then It's well we know it now. Who was "it." young Roosevelt continued, "who put Averell Harriman in this race but Adlal Stevenson?"-referring to Stevenson's speech at Roosevelt College last spring urging Hurriman to run for pres- Idot. "And who wan It who kept Harriman in the rare right up until the laat minute? If Adlal wants to make his position clear," concluded Roosevelt, "then all he has to do is step outside to the newsmen who are waiting nuUide his houte." * * * One of Averell Harriman's key campaign managers 'at Chicago was Jim Howe, former assistant to Attorney General Biddle. Earlier In the campaign Howe decided to sUy out of politics, possibly leaned a bit toward Kefauver. P.ut his wife became a precinct worker for Averell Harriman. worked night and day to carry the District of Columbia primaries for Harriman, and finally, to keep peace in the family, Rowe threw in his lot with his wife and hopped on the Harriman bandwagon. Being an able organizer, he was gradually Uken in to the top of the Harriman entourage. While at Chicago, losing sleep, getting no meals, and spending his money to put Harriman across, Rowe called up his wife in Washington to see how she thought their candidate was do- Ing. "Oh," replied Mrs. Rnwe. "I forgot to tell you that ever since I heard Governor Stevenson make t h a t wonderful speech I've been for him " + * » A f t e r Gnv. Paul Dpver of Massachusetts had one of his conferences with President Truman last spring to arrange plans for the Chicago convention. Dfver was asked whether Truman would run the convention. "Nobody will ever see his hand," the governor replied. That statement was prophetic. In room l i o n of the Blackslnne Hotel a private phone connected the White House w i t h the suitp of Bill Boyle, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and Mr. Truman's close friend. On the second floor of the Convention Hall, furthermore, was a small office w i t h another private phone connecting to the White House. There. President Secretary Claytnn Fritchev, cx- Attorney General Howard McGrath, Chairman McKinney. While House Secretary Donald Dawson and Scott Lucas, the ex-senator from Illinois who claims that Kefauver's crime probe defeated him for reelection, conferred It was this group, on instructions from the White House, which wanted to ram the Thursday-night session through u n t i l dawn ff necessary, and it was only the fact t h a t the fire m a r - shal came up to this room to warn t h a t there How Green Were the ConventioiiB Today and Tomorrow ·7 WALTIt LirrMANN During the long t u m u l t u o u s cession on Thursday night there were moments when it snemed as if the convention was out of control, when it was no longer q u i t e so certain as it had hern on Wednesday that there was a preponderant majority in control of the party Yet now t h a t the fighting is over, it is a f a i r conclusion, I think, t h a t the struggle was long and so dramatic because the , majority chose to exert only as ! l n a t ln(?re ls 50 much underlying much of its power as was necrs- j similarity between tr" Eisenhow- sary--necessary to quell the re- I cr '" ind Stevenson movements.

The draft of Stevenson came from the moderate middle people ,-MIC; it has h«en successful because the professional politicians, whose business it is to know these thinjs have known that in order to carry the nation the party must appeal successfully In this moder- a t e middle. There is nothing mys- trnniis, therefore, ahout the fact ssue of party unity had to be met. But always the majority vailed a long time, and exerted ts powers as sparingly and as un- 'btrusively as possible. There was II the power there was needed or a steam-roller, but that power ·as never used in a way which made this too palpable. In the end majority always had its way --but not by a knockout and there anything surprising about t h i s important truth. In a time of f u l l employment anrt very general prosperity the first interest O f most families is to hold what they have, and to take no risk they can avoid.

Koto--When Truman was nominated vice president in 1344. also at Chicago, his party m a n - agers used reverse hut equally tough tactics. About 9 p. m., Henry Wallace's managers, expecting b a l l o t i n g to begin, had lined up a hig demonstration. D.a the chairman gaveled the meeting to an adjournment on the instruction of Bob Hannegan. Last week, Truman forces gaveled for a continued session.
