Following her arrest on the charge
of circulating obscene literature, Mrs.
Sanger was released and went to
England, where she is now working
with Havelock Ellis and. where she
prepared the pamphlet she had prom-
ised her readers, the pamphlet on
Vy birth control.
William Sanger, who is married to
"the woman rebel," took no part in
this propaganda. He is an architect
and decorator.
After his wife fled to London he re
ceived a visit from a man who an
nounced himself as one of Mrs. San
ger's friends, and said that she had
promised him one of the leaflets on
family limitation. Sanger said he be
lieved that his wife had taken all her
papers with her, but on the earnest
plea of his visitor consented to look
through her dek. He found one and
gave it to the "friend" who had used
his wife's name.
The next time William Sanger saw
this family "friend" was when he re
turned with Anthony Comstock and
a search warrant and this self-ap
pointed guardian of New York mor
als proceeded to turn Sanger's stu
dio inside out. He arrested Sanger.
Sanger had to spend the night in jail.
Comstock advised the yonng ar
chitect to plead guilty and promised
him a suspended sentence if he would
make such a plea. But this Sanger
refused to do.
Following his night in jail Sanger
was bailed out, and backed by the
Free Speech league and with the sup
port of the radical weekly, "The
E luusstsa, ue is preparing 10 ugut ior
jp his constitutional rights of free
speecn.
His attorney Gilbert E. Roe will
make the claim that the right of
search cannot be delegated by the
state of New York to a private indi
vidual like Comstock.
Meantime, however, Comstock's
ruse has worked, for Margaret San
ger has written to say that she is un-
T she is coming to New York to stand
trial beside him.
