The Christian Science Monitor (06-12-1924) contained a version of Beetsons report exonerating the motion picture industry from cruel treatment of animals. Its editor Abbot is now under severe public attack for publishing such clearly partisan material, and he makes a desperate appeal to Hays for some action to quieten the critics -- specifically, a law suit against Mrs Wright. (Abbot is elsewhere described by Hays as a very good friend of the movie industry.)
