July 21 —Vigorous use of "inherent judicial authority" to prevent trial by newspaper is recom mended by a committee of the Newt York County Lawyers’ Association in a tentative report prepared for the American Bar Association. The report strikes at "sensational and reek less journalism" and con cludes that exercise of the summary contempt would make administrative censorship unnecessary. Irvine I. Goldsmith is chairman of the committee making the recommen dations. and George Sylvester is cred ited with the research and prepara tion. l ull Recommendation. The full recommendation at the end of the chapter titled "Trial By Newspaper.'' follows "A prejudiced jury strikes at the heart of the administration of crimi nal justice. Determination of the question, whether the defendant is guilty or Innocent of the crime with which he is charged, is essentially the sole function of the criminal pro cedure. The Importance, therefore, of restricting in some manner the creation of violent prejudices and preconceived opinions by sensational and reckless journalism, is clear. "The offense obviously is Interfer- : ence with the administration of jus tice or. in effect., contempt of court. Vigorous exercise of the summary con tempt by the courts would do much to check the activities of the inferior type ol nrwspaper without affecting in any way. the unbiased accounts of criminal proceedings by the more con servative type of publication. Balance Is Seen. "Any unfavorable publicity that the court or prosecutor would receive ! as a result of this direct attack in the press would be more than offset by the almost certain approval of the public generally and by,the expressed appro bation of the better newspaper. "Vigorous use of this inherent ju dicial authority, supported by ample precedent, moreover, will render un necessary administrative censorship."

BYRD WILL QUIT HIS LONELY BASE Plans Little America Return if Weather Conditions Permit. the Pr»«« LITTLE AMERICA. Antarctica. July 21 (via Mackay Radio).—Ar rangements were completed yesterday afternoon in a radio conversation with rear admiral Richard E. Byrd for a tractor with a crew of five men to leave today for the Bolling advance weather base where the ad miral has spent four months in the world's southernmost meteorological station. The tractor journey, which is de pendent upon weather conditions. Is for the purpose of bringing Admiral Byrd bark to Little America and leaving two observers at the advance base in his place. The observers are Carl O. Peter son. a veteran of the first Byrd ex pedition. and Bernard Fleming of New Zealand, a skilled radio operator, who also will assist in | meteorolog ical work. The two men will be isolated until October, when the southern party is scheduled to pass the base on its way to the Queen Maud Mountains. The admiral remarked that he had a "bad arm," but did not say w'hether it was injured or was "bad" of some other cause. Communication was difficult today due to the fact that the main radio sef at the advance base still is out of commission, and Byrd is forced to use a set cranked by hand. Weather conditions today were not promising, and there were indications that a blizzard might cause a delay of the tractor trip, which it is estimated will require about 72 hours. Woman’s Purse Snatched. Mrs. Julie Thomasset. 2147 O street, reported to police that her pocket book, containing $15. was snatched from her late yesterday by a young colored ma^i while she was walking in the 1800 block of N street. ■ WITH THIS rorPON WATCH REPAIRING I ANY MAKE WATCH i Cleaned, Adjusted and „ ?■ Rrgulated from. 2 ?
