SCHEMES UNDER FIRE
Representative Dent of Alabama Intro
duce! a Bill Aimed at False
To curb shady commercial schemes
vhlch succeed la evading the postal
fraud law, Representative Dent of Ala
bama, Is preparing a bill aimed at false
advertising throughout the country.
Tha bill will hold liable to fine and Im
prisonment following trial before, a
United States Court any person, corpora
tion, or association who, with Intent to
dispose of merchandise, securities, serv
ice, or anything offered to the publlo for
sale or distribution, or with Intent to in
crease the consumption thereof, publishes
or causes to be placed betpre the publlo
in any printed or written form any ad
vertisement which "contains any asser
tion, representation or statement of fact"
which Is untrue.
Alleged repeated and general evasion of
the postal fraud act, the only existing
weapon for the Federal prosecution of
schemes to defraud, has been the sub
ject of discussion for several years, and
Mr. Dent believes, as do a number of
his colleagues, that the abuse can be
stopped through a stringent Interstate
It Is understood that the Dent bill
will operate against the shipment In In
terstate commerce from the place of
manufacture or production of merchan
dise destined for points In other States
and where the advertising campaigns
have been carried on within the State
and without resorting to the malls for
the dissemination of misleading litera
The most serious abuse of this na
ture and which. In the opinion of many,
constantly escapes prosecution at the
hinds of the postal authorities. Is car
ried on by fl-bj -night Insurance com
panies and wildcat stock selling schemes
Mr Dent believes that the provisions
of the bill he is writing can be made
to apply to these abuses more effectively
than the present postal laws.
