Women’s Club Hears of OWI Work Overseas The importance of American propaganda in combating Axis in fluence abroad was stressed by Ed ward W. Barrett, executive director of the overseas branch. Office of War Information, in an address be fore the Woman’s National Demo cratic Club yesterday. Guest speaker at the club’s weekly luncheon. Mr. Barrett who has served with the OWI overseas for two years, explained the many channels which are effective in pre senting to the people of other nations, both friendly and enemy, a true picture of America and Amer icans. He described the rapidity with which leaflets are written, translated and placed into shells which are fired across enemy lines, telling Axis soldiers truths which they learn for the first time. He told of the radio transmitters which carried mes sages to the Italians shortly after the Allied invasion, crediting this propaganda with effecting the sur render of the Italian fleet. Mr. Bar rett said that trucks carrying sound transmitters traveled throughout the liberated areas of Italy giving to many in that country the "first truthful news they had heard in 20 years.” Moving pictures also form a strong medium for presenting a true pic ture of America to the liberated people of North Africa and Italy, the speaker continued, many of these films being specially prepared by OWI for this purpose. Mr. Barrett emphasized that OWI does not serve American troops with news, which is handled by the War Department, nor does its carry polit ical propaganda. “We are proud, however, to let the people of Europe know that we can hold our national elections without impeding our war effort and that whoever is elected President will have the stuff for the job,” he added. OWI is now preparing for its greatest work of propaganda, the speaker concluded. “If we can shorten the war by only three and three-quarter hours,” he declared “we will more than pay for ourselves.” Mr. Barrett was introduced by the new president, Mrs. William Clayton, who presided for the first time since her election.
