NICOLET United Press Staff Correspondent WASHINGTON. Nov. 21. (UP). The treasury clamped down last ni>tht on tlu* unrestricted circula tion of general statistical data or information involving; administra tion policy. To many observers the action appeared to be a fur ther st»>u in a campaign to pre vent publication of information from official squrces reflecting upon administration programs Acting Secretarv of Treasury Henrv Morgenthau, Jr.. insist-d he was not imposing ">fad rule" but made it clear thai he fel* justified in taking such action as he felt necessary to protect treas ury secrets. He ordered that all statistical or policy information must be made public only through Herbert E. Gaston, his own pub' licity man. whom he took to the treasury with him from the farru credit administration. A special office was being fit ted up for Gaston across a cor ridor from the secretary's office occupied by Morgenthau. Gaston, former newspaperman and no:. partisan leaguer in the north we>t some years ago, is expected to receive a salary of $8500 as assistant to the secretary. Morgenthau's order was given significance by its proximity to two other developments, the three of which appeared taken together to indicate a strong feling in high circles that some control should be maintained over data tending to discredit any phase of the recovery program. The October federal reserve bulletin carried a statement in its usual review of the month that records showed a slowing- down in industries under XRA codes. Recovery Administrator Hugh £ Johnson protested stronglv against the statement, but it was not qualified. The November bulletin, out last week, carried no review of the month, but instead quoted length, without comment, from President Roosevelt's speech an nouncing his new gold policy. Cosiderable indignation has been expressed in business and banking circles over the abandon mert of the review of the month, which has been considered a valu able interpretation of available statistics. On too of that. F. C. Walker, executive secretary of the "super cabinet" made up of cabinet members and the heads of recov ery administrations, ordered that all departments must submit r.ll economic reports to the central statistical board before publica tion. This board is headed bv Win field Riefler. the president's "in terpreting economist." In this connection it may be significant that the XRA has withheld all recent data garner ed fro?™ its "census of industry" under the blue eagle. It set tout with great fanfare to collet 3. 500.000 reports from emnloyer* on increases in personnel and wages. A few scattering reports made public a month ago indi cated. when "broken down." that though payrolls and the number of persons employed had increas ed. average wages had decreased and some employes must be get ting far less than XRA wages— ?n short, that a great deal of part time emplovment was being given >»* a means of makinga good show ing in increasing employment. Since then, not a scrap of data on the census has been made pub lic though it had been counted upon to furnish the basis for fighting off opposition com plaints that the XRA was slowing down. Newspapermen regularly at tached to the treasury were onon Tv indignant last night over Mor genthau's order, which thpy felt was an unnecessary restriction. Statistical data generally ha? been freelv available for inter pretative use. In connection with Morgen thau's ordei. it was recalled that a few days before Secretary Woodin went on indefinite leavt of absence, he commented thai "there's too much talking around J here."

The trouble with such 'tfivinir ! is that it isn't often civ en. It's an excuse. If each person who is inclined to give relief to others gives only to those he or she personally knows, who will take care of the multitude unknown to those will^ ing to give? Who would have taken care of the five million, eight hundred and three thousand families with out an income who enjoyed the blessings of the eighty-five mil lion bushels of wheat distributed through the Red Cross last year.

The Red Cross subscriptions, millions of them collectively, make possible the accomplishment of big tasks that would never get to the first base if charity work was left with the fellow who al ways gives his benevolences di rect. Just plain folks in this era and crisis are not charitably enough inclined to take care of the penniless multitudes without some organization to systematize the work. Obtain a Red Cross button and wear it and displav the Red Cross sign in your window. That will give you the satisfaction of know ing that you have done some thing. LANIER GETS FIVE YEARS IN ATLANTA PEN Reynolds, Jr., Unwittingly Turns Up Old Playmate for Extortion Note WILKESBORO, Nov. 21.— (UP).—Upon confession of at tempting to extort $10,000 from Richard J. Reynolds, Jr., heir to' tobacco millions, under threats of I ' kidnaping his wife, John Lanier ; was sentenced yesterday to five I years in the federal prison at At-; ; lanta.
