Response to Hamner letter of 03-23-1923. Hays appends a resolution taken by members of the MPPDA, a reaffirmation of noble purpose, especially since "the future freedom of the industry from both political and unofficial censorship" is in the balance. 23 states have so far "defeated, repealed or withheld" censorship provisions. Encloses copy of MPPDA directors resolution passed at first annual meeting 03-26-1923, expressing their "determination to continue in their efforts to make better and better pictures to the exclusion of every other consideration"
