Bank St. Was opposed to the gruesome pictures which some other newspapers put out about the Hauptmann electrocution. He said it was nothing a child should read or see. I disagree with v. G. I think any child old enough to read and reason for himself would not be Hurt by it but would keep this in mind As to what happens to Law Breakers and would at some time profit by it. the other hand children not a id enough to read surely got no horrible effects even if any one read it to them it we Tould not harm them As they would be too Young to Realise what it meant.
