THE POWER OF THE PRESS
and the
FREEDOM THEREOF

It has been brought to our attention by very reliable sources that several instances of FLAGRANT ABUSE of the POWER of the PRESS have occurred. In the first case Walter Winchell, a very old and dear friend of ours was viewing with his customary adjective aplomb the recent disturbances at Columbia. When (out of nowhere) he espied some policemen beating up on several of his colleagues.

'Hey' he said, 'You can't do that, they've got PRESS CARDS!!' To which one of the uniformed patrolmen replied as he strode over, 'Hey you Son of a Bitch, you look like Walter Winchell!' He struck him a Blow to mark the meeting.
Which brings us, folks, down to the moral of this week's sermonette, which is this: That if Walter Winchell, Himself a very well known and respected PressMan can be so smote so to speak in spite of the Power of the Press and his Status as a Member of The Working Press, and officially approved and recognized by Commissioner Leary as such, where do YOU stand?
