wartime to keep Americans from working them selves into a ferment over the sup posed activities of foreign secret agents delving into the mysteries of our plans for national defense and offense Every experienced person knows that practically there are no such mysteries Information Free Whatever it is worth a secret agents while to find out he can find out from books and reports officially in print

to let the spy scoop in his ill got ten gains and spend them in in creasing his own countrys pur chasing1 power He may be unpat riotic as an individual but he is doing no harm strategically and be is draining the enemy of its finan cial reaources The navy however is out to get the scalps of the con victed one arrested another and is on the trail of several others One wonders Is the navy really

Official Spies For that matter every military or naval attache of a foreign em bassy at in his way a spy But he is an official spy he does not count The administration probably has caught the spy
