its young people a full measure of
protection and opportunity for
health and happiness."
The telegram asked the Governors,

State and community conferences to
survey conditions and determine
what should be done to correct con

sisting and will continue to resist
any attempts to dictate what ap
pears or does not appear on the
screen. * * *
"To tamper in any waj: with the
hard-won, precious right of free

The barter plan was proposed

American Legion director. He made
it before the Senate Foreign Re
