Adenauer Press Policy
Opposed by Allies as
Trend to Censorship
ly th» Associated Press
FRANKFURT, Germany, Dec.
7.—Responsible sources said yes
terday that high Allied authori
ties have protested orally to
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer
against what some regard as the
beginnings of press censorship by
Che West German government.
Dr. Adenauers new press policy
1. Each ministry will have press
departments “giving all informa
tion' heeded” to newspapers.
2. All official statements from
the government ministries must be
tunneled through the federal press
3. Officials in at least two min
istries, other than press officers,
can give no information to the
press. Violators have been threat
ened with dismissal.
Dr. Heinrich Boex, the federal
press chief, said this new policy
is designed to “protect the press
against false information.”
John J. McCloy, American high
commissioner, told reporters:
“I am particularly firm in the
belief that freedom of the press
can be a great bulwark in the
development of German democ
racy. I believe that free com
ment on the actions of govern
ment leaders must always be en
couraged, and if any errors are
to be committed in that respect,
they should lie on the liberal
rather than the restrictive side."
The West German government
recently threatened dismissal of
any employe of the economics and
transport ministries who gives in
formation to the press. Dr. Boex
said this directive was issued after
“some indiscretions” by employes
of the two ministries.
An official of the high commis
sion’s public affairs division said:
“I have good reason to believe
that such threats have been is
sued in all the ministries. They
just haven’t come to light yet.”
German reporters in Bonn call
the federal press office the “four
teenth ministry.” It has 144 em
ployes—more than half as many
as the European Recovery Pro
gram Ministry or the Ministry for
Refugee Affairs. Officially there
are 13 government ministries.

Priceless Records Dating Back
To I860 Returned to Virginia
ly tK« Auociatmi Prut
RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 7.—
Priceless Virginia records dating
back to the early 1860’s have been
returned to the Commonwealth.
The documents constitute the
largest group of Virginiana “re
claimed” since Gov. Tuck in the
spring of 1948 undertook a pro
gram to get back “strayed, stolen
or lost” public papers, according
to State Librarian Randolph
Included are 12 manuscripts; a
box of miscellaneous papers and
letters, and a number of printed
books. They were taken along
with Confederate papers from the
State Capitol here by Federal
troops in April or May, 1865.
The National Archives, Wash
ington, had the documents. A
State spokesman said the National
Archives had been very co-opera
tive in returning them.
"Once they were assured we had
adequate quarters in which to put
them, there was no trouble,” he
As early as 1867, the Secretary
of the Commpnwealth, then a
colonel in the United States Army,
asked for their return. It took
House report 1322, 81st Congress,
and six months of negotiations by
State officials some 82 years later
to get them back.
The most important manuscript
in the group is the proceedings
of the advisory council of Virginia
from April 21 to June 20, 1861.
This includes a list of all appoint
ments of officers to the Army of
The volume was considered so
useful by Washington experts that
the Federal Government made a
complete index of the names listed.
Mr. Church said the manuscript
probably would be printed “sooner
Also Included are three volumes
of executive Journals covering the
period from 1861 to 1866. W. J.
Van Schreeven, head of the State
Library’s archives division, said
these volumes fill out the library’s
set and give the State a complete
day-to-date record of the official
activities of the governor.
Among the documents also are
the Governor’s proclamations,
from 1827 to 1865; minute and ac
count books of the State Audit
ing Board from 1861 to 1865, and
the journal and docket of the
House of Delegates’ Committed of
Military Affairs from 1859 to 1865.
