LIBEL PROSECUTION MISTAKE
OF ROOSEVELT'S CAREER

brought into play all the power of the
government in an effort to prove that
any rlewspaper that may offend an ad
ministration can be terrorized and
"If an attorney general, at the in
stance of a president, can reach out
at any time for any newspaper that
prints something that the president
docs not like, then are we indeed com
ing to methods that would make of the
constitution a torn and tattered instru
ment, powerless to protect freedom of
speech and of newspaper discussion.
That Serret Service Question. '
j While the president and Mr. Tawney
are arguing, does the country lose or
profit by the restrictions placed upon
the secret service? This query is
causing considerable discussion, and
there are not a few who believe with
the president, that congress' action in
limiting the scope of work of the se
cret service was "against the inter
'ests of the law-abiding people, and in
its effect of benefit only to law-breakers."
Some of the acts of Chief Wil
kie's men under the Roosevelt admin
istration are criticised on all sides.
For instance, the detailing of men to
shadow army officers that evidence for
divorce suits might be developed, in
condemned in all quarters. -
