Censorship to Be Lax.
Unlike the stricter policy attempted
at tbe outset of the war by the armies

sion of the war department to restrict

diers to printed cards containing ste
feotyped phrases which the soldiers
an strike oat or leave in as they suit,
eheir particular state of physical well
teeing. It is felt that this would in
volve too harsh a regulation fur the
parents and wives of men at the front.
Consequently the only regulation that
will be attempted over the correspond
ence will be the regular cersorship at
each regimental headquarters, through
which all mall sent out by the soldiers
At this point the war department in
tends shortly to issue a warning and
a plea to American newspapers not to
print, without careful regard to possi
ble harm that might be done. letters
from soldiers bearing the phrase "pass
ed by the censor." Such censoring,
which will be administered with the
atmost liberal regard for the private!
character of the correspondence, will
aot be as strict its the censorship over
press matter. Therefore the papers of
toe country will he asked to exereiso
the greatest possible caro about letters
which might be submitted to them for
publication by proud parents or friends.
