four reporters to jail for an hour
because they refused to tell where
they had procured certain infor

Any honorable reporter, given
information in confidence, would
go to jail before he would violate
his promise not to tell where h'e
got the information.
The sources of information of
great usefulness to the public

porter who failed to keep faith.
Of course, some reporters are
too weak to guard these confi

them inlo a betrayal of the trust.
But, be it said to the credit of
reporters as a class, most of them
will go smilingly to jail before
they will reveal what they have
promised not to reveal.
No good purpose is to be ser

trying to compel reporters to
disclose the sources of confiden
