War on Obscene
; Postal Cards
9 OHIO MEN ARRESTED AS THE BEv
GINNING OF A CRUSADE '
I- AGAINST THE "COMIC"
? MARIETTA, 0., Sept. 14. - Uncle
r Sam has started a crusade against
| the fellows who persist in sending ilt
tustrated postal cards of an obscene
nature through the mails, and 'two men ,
employed in 'Athens county are the
first to come under the ban of th(?
law. They were arrested Thursday by
Deputy United States Marshal McCalllBter,
brought to Marietta and arraigned
before United States Commissioner
j beeper. The men arrested are Roy
Jones, of Licking county, an attend(
ant at the Athens State hospital, and
Thomas Huffman, of Hocking county,
who has been employed at Nelsonville.
Some weeks ago, It Is charged, the
men mailed "comic" postal cards
t through the Atheas office. Postmaster
t Finsterwald saw the cards, concluded
j they were of on bbscene nature, and
y. reported the matter to the department.
s The information was turned over to
9 the Cincinnati office and Inspector Olds
field was detailed on the case. In a
t short time lie had worked up sufficient
evidence to warrant the arrest of the
1 two men and the affidavits were ac..
Thursday morning. Deputy Marshal
u McAllicter went to Athens county and
. arrested Jones and Huffman. He
e brought them to Marietta, on the aftera
noon train, and they were immediately
taken before Commissioner Leeper,
where they wore charged with vlolnte
lag the II. S. Postal laws. They waived
o examination ami were held to .court,
in the sum of $500 each. Jones gave
ball with Superintendent J. F. Hanson
and Assistant Superintendent C. E. Atkinson
of the Athens State hospital, as
sureties. Huffman- appeared to be
friendless and was remanded to the
Washington county jail to await the
sitting of the federal grand jury, at
Columbus, the second Tuesday In December.
Jones, In company with Dr.
Hanson and Dr. Atklneson, returned to
Athens Thursday evening.
Deputy Marshal McCallister, In cona
versation with a newspaper correspondent
shortly after the men were
aralgned, stated that this Is but the
beginning of a war on the suggestive
|t postal cards. Many of these cards are
absolutely obscene and the governlf
ment proposes to stop the sending of
a such stuff through the mails. To. that
t. end, evidence Is being gathered, aad
j several other arests will likely follow
within the next few weeks. He states
that the government is taking tho
names of all dealers who traffic In such
cards, and they will _be compelled ?to
quit handling them under penalty of
?j the law.
Jones and Huffman, the victims of
|u the law, stated while here that the
* cards mailed by them were nothing
[S more than are being sold over thouBands
of novelty counters. According
^ to this Information, the so-called comic
ia postal card crank will do well to quit
ir the habit.
