Speaking for both himself and Mar-

majority's seeming disregard for the
freedom of the press and their ability to
"It seems self-evident that police
searches of newspaper offices burdens
the freedom of the press," he wrote in a
dissenting statement. "It requires no
blind leap oLfaith to understand tfrat a
person who gives information to a jour-
nalist only on condition that his identity
will not be revealed will be less likely to
give that information if he knows that,
despite the journalist's assurance, his
identity may in fact be disclosed,"
ACROSS THE -NATION, numerous
newspaper editors and television and
radio news directors voiced displeasure
with the decision. David Ansley, the
editor of the jStanford Daily News,
termed the decision "a sad day in the
history of the American press."
In a statement released early in the
afternoon, Washington Post Editor Ben
Bradlee called the decision "a crippling
blow .. to freedom of the press." He
said that the Pentagon papers would
never have been published and
Watergate never uncovered if the
measure had been in force at the time.
"If this decision were enforced
during Watergate, it requires no stretch
of the imagination to perceive police in
these offices on a regular basis on a
fishing expedition for Messrs. Nixon,
Haldeman, Mitchell, Erlichman and
company!" he charged.
