Not only local and stale authorities have tried to dictate shall ano shall not be printed but there have been hints and threats from those high in the Federal Government itself Not long ago an agent of the Department of Labor threatened to prosecute for treason newspaper which primed a of the effort lo unionize certain His WHS promptly disavowed by his superiors but since then similar threats lo
