Senate de bate on the administration espionage bill continued today, with the fate of a press censorship still in doubt. 1 his section ot the bill provides a ten years' imprisonment or a fine of $10,000 for persons who collect, pub lish or elicit information concerning matters of national defense which might be of use to the enemy, in vio lation of regulations by the president. SenaVir Borah contended that con- ?:ress was devoid of power to inter ere in any way with the liberty of the press. He also declared that the framers of the constitution were agreed that the national government should be excluded absolutely from all power over the press. The first constitutional amendment, he said, was added to make certain that in terference with liberty of the Dress by the federal government was ex pressly denied. Regarding the contention that na tional safety makes a censorshio necessary now, Senator Borah said: "The public interest' has alwavs been the basis for all attacks upon the press. Kings and dictators have suppressed publications because thev believed them against public interest." Senator Thomas of Colorado pro posed to strike out virtually theen tire so-called "censorship" section, but action was deferred. Senator Johnson of California nn. posed the whole section as a blow at tree speech as well as at a free press. "My opinion is not so much because of tenderness for the press." said he. "A decent and self-respecting press in time of war will censor itself and will not be deterred by any law from hon est and legitimate criticism. "I am concerned moallv with thr right of free speech, the preservation of democracy itself." 'ltlll.ll'lUlilHllillt:,,H,,1lilllllirllll I TRUNKS'!
