 Never has covering the world been more complex, expensive, dangerous or important. Shock waves from the collapse of Communism are being felt from Central Asia to the heart of Europe. Cold War barriers are falling in Asia too, redefining old enmities and opening the way to a new zone of prosperity. Western news organizations and their reporters trying to cover the story are confronting harassment, strife and even death. At the same time high costs are forcing the shutdown of bureaus, downgrading of staff and the new demise of UPI. Do these pressures threaten the ability of Americans to understand the world, and are the wire services doing the job right in the first place?
 Exploring the questions will be a panel consisting of Tom Kent, international editor of the Associated Press; Allen Alter, foreign editor of CBS; and Professor Donald Read, author of the newly released "The Power of News: The History of Reuters." The moderator will be Josh Friedman, director of the International Division of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism. Kent previously served in Moscow, Tehran, Sydney and Brussels while Alter served an extended tour for UPI in Israel. Friedman, a former international editor for Newsday, also is a board member of the Committee to Protect Journalists.
 It's going to a spirited program. Don't miss it.
 CONTACT: Overseas Press Club of America, 212-983-4655.
