"I Didn't Know!" Senator Newberry's defense on the floor of tho senate Mommy is a* old us crime—"l didn't know!" It was perfectly certain that this would l>e his do / )# i . fense, if he made any. It wax the only de fense he could make, as the expenditure .»f a vaat sum of mone> in his senatorial cam paign in 191S had been admitted. Of course he DID know. The r«c<yd3 available for every sen ator to read prove thai he did. But—let's as sume that he in the lack-wit he tries to make himself out to be. Then consider the situ ation. Any man who desires to buy a seat in the senate has only to ab sent himself from the state and give his agent* free rein. They may spend all they please—it is immater ial whether it is hi* money, his family's money or their own. It is for him it is being spent. Can common sense or common honesty condone a course of that kind? Think of the possibilities. Think* how the special interests of great wealth will be prepared to use such a precedent. They want their own man in the sen ate. So they keep him ignorant of their activities. They are free to use all the cash necessary, as long as he can still stand up in the senate and say with a straight face that he knew nothing about the bood ling. The Star submits that the founding fathers—to borrow President* Harding's name for the frame re of the constitution—did not conceive that they had planned anything'that could be subverted to such a purpose. Even Ix)rimer did not attempt anything so raw! It remained for Trumap Newberry. It now remains for the self-respecting men. whom he seeks to call colleagues, to make it clear to him that his remark able theory is as false as his whole position before the American people. The voters of this state have their eye on the man ner in which Senators Poindexter and Joneat shall meet the issue.
