public such polis when they contained
figures that wo*:ld buoy up the hopes

were discouraging tbe reports were
suppressed, as in this case. Fven
Den.ocratic lieutenants. except those ,
directly interested in the compilation J
of this report, admit that its supres

When it was learned that the report

McCormick was asked to make it public.1
He immediately refused. saying that he
