Conference on Censorship.
Meltzer, Milton; And Others
In this collection of seven speeches from the University of Missouri Conference on Censorship, writers focus on the various aspects of censorship. Speeches are by (1) Milton Meltzer, who lauds those writers who were forced to battle with censors; (2) Enid Olson, who explores the censorship problems faced by teachers and school librarians; (3) Margaret Twyman, who recommends education as the best means of changing the climate in which censors can thrive; (4) Irving Levitas, who interprets the censorship and violence problems as subterfuges for an actual political situation that attempts to preserve the status quo at all costs; (5) Joan Bodger, who asserts that the speaking out of youth has rocked our society and will continue to do so; (6) Morris Ernst, who accuses the networks, TV executives, and controllers of the mass media of keeping the public in ignorance; and (7) Anson Mount, who considers personal freedom as the key to the outlook of the young generation. Also included is the question and answer session of the Conference. (JM)
