Throwing Down Jones? From
Eugene Lyons’ 1937 book; Assignment
•On emerging from Russia, Jones made a statement
though it sounded, was little more than a summary of what the correspondents and foreign diplomats
had told him. To protect us… he emphasized his Ukrainian foray rather than our
as the chief source of his information.
•In any case… with preparations
under way for the trial of the British [Metrovik] engineers, the need to remain on
friendly terms with
the censors … was for all of us a compelling professional necessity.
