venture that quite a book could be written about the political smears which havebeen petrated days of our Republic And smearing does date back to that time in our national history George Washington himself was the vic tim of scurrilous falsehoods Efforts to do something about the evil have not been effective for the reason that the elimina tion of the smearing tactics pre sents another and even more seri ous danger than the smears The corrective action has posed a real threat to our constitutional guarantee of freedom of speech and freedom of the press Theres the further fact that cries of Smear are easy for spokesmen for a party or for a candidate to send up Already in this Presidential election year weve heard the word from both camps Often its a matter of viewpoint That which is

bring the subject into the open for correction With this as a general back ground I think we are ready to get down to cases And well start with a rather recent case one in which a composite picture was used in 1950 to disseminate a vicious falsehood about a United States Senator By producing a composite from two or more pictures opponents of Sen Millard Tydings a well respected Democratic
