ISSUE IN NORTHWEST
Tacoma, Washington, Feb. 22.
George Washington was a live issue
Paul R. Haffer was scheduled for a
hearing in court tomorrow on com
plaint sworn out by Colonel Albert E.
Joab, charging HafEner with crim
inal libel for assailing Washington's
character. Haffner, in course of an
article advocating his candidacy for
city controller on Socialist ticket, il
lustrated an argument against "hero
worship" by declaring that first pres
ident of the United States "had been
a slave owner" and besides was "a
profane and blasphemous man and
an inveterate drinker."
There may be some difficulty find

Justice Frank Graham said:

in my court. I won't permit Haffner
to attempt to prove the truth of his
charges in my court." '
