Hays explains his controversial statement on the Arbuckle case, which advocated Christian charity rather than outright condemnation, and proposes Arbuckle be permitted to work in industry. The statement was "in no sense a reinstatement of Arbuckle and it does not concern the releasing of the films already made." [Hays' actions concerning Arbuckle in April have already rendered him unable to work since then.]
