Gwynne, editor of the "Morn ing Post," lecturing on The Press in War at the R:oyal United Service Institution, Whitehall, declared that the success of the nation's arms would, to a very great extent, depend on the effectual concealment of its plans and operations. SHe suggested the appointment of a com mittee of ten elected or selected eminent journalists to work in close co-operation with the authorities, having a place in the Admiralty or the War Office where it could meet. "It would be the business of the com mittee," he said, "to prepare every day, in conjunction with tlhe authorities, an account of what was going on. The publication of casaualty lists should be repressed, as the enemy could draw deductions from them, and war correspondents in the field should not be allowed to. send off despatches until the general commanding thought fit. Jour nalists must remember that .the matter requires adjustment in peace time, because in time of war ...
