that it was physically impossible for
him to have done what was suggest
ed in JBoalt's story, and at the same
time it is possible that Richardson
may have told Boalt that he did such
a thing. In that case the responsibil

Secretary Garrison had received
from the White House the official
protest against the exercise of cen
sorship at Vera, Cruz and intimated,
though he did not say explicitly, that
such censorship was without his
knowledge and did not have his ap

said that he was not satisfied with the
status of the matter and that it was
not on his orders that any embargo
had been placed on the sending of
news in regard to the trial.
He said he personally favored the
greatest publicity and had done ev

to bring about such publicity. The
cable office is under the jurisdiction
of the war department, it must be
remembered.

cannot be, officially verified, that the
president, in forwarding the News
paper Enterprise Association's pro
test against the censorship, intimated
that such censorship was not neces
sary. o o

rich are found in houses of prostitu
tion. Owners of vice property are
but one degree removed from the
keepers. As easy a divorce as pos
sible is one of the solutions of the
prostitution problem. The independ
ent woman will marry if she meets
the right man. There are five men
prostitutes to every woman prosti
tute. o o
