choice Of Price
For U. S. Censor
!Is Well Made
By CHA3LES P. STEWART
(Central Press Columnist)
By title he's the government's
censor really Byron Price is more
i managing editor of the news re
xrt that Uncle Sam Broadcasts.
Censorship may be necessary in
wartime, but so's the right kind
of publicity. When the enemy's
practicing it, it is known, as propa
ganda. It is publicity, though,
when we engage in it ourselves. i
Uncle Samuel already had press
agents galore before Byron's con-
;cription from the Associated
Press' news managership, a few
days ago, to superintend govern
mental editing. Every Washing
ton department has at least one
ublicity man of its own, and so
do most emergency and other bu
reaus, Some have whole staffs of
them. It's a fact, however, that
they needed a single chief, to co
ordinate their activities, and also
to regulate them. n
That's Byron Price's new job.
A managing editor's business is
to see that his report is well, in
teresting and comprehensively pre
paredthat all the news is told
that ought to be told. There is
stuff, though, that isn't fit to print

During these years we had full

rested a situation ideal for con

Now the situation is reversed,
fefense requirements, both mili
ary and industrial, as well as
nprecedented demands for indi
Idual service, have placed ex

tough To Dig Out
The truth is that we've had a
fairly strict censorship, at the
ource, for some time. That is,
while diggers after news haven't
been forbidden to publish whatever
dope they succeeded in disinterring,
there's been plenty of it that they
haven't been able to get at. And
quite a bit of this suppressed in
formation has been of a sort that
it would have paid Uncle Sammy
to have circulated.
Very recently the navv depart
ment established a sure-enough
censorship over the cabling or ra
dioing of messages abroad.
It s easy to undertsand why
countries with which we're at war
ihouldn't be tipped off to items
that might, help them in fighting
us and the democracies we are as
sociated with. The trouble with a
naval and army officer as a censor,
though, is that he isn't apt to have
x lick of news judgment. No doubt
he can spot what's calculated to be
iseful to the Axis folk, but his ten
dency, in an honest effort to be
borough, is to kill matter that
ivould be first-class advertising for
The censorial assignment, in
hort, logically is one for an able,
jxperienced professional journalist,
