Re rumors of a crime film on Dillinger: Governor McNutt of Indiana is embarrassed by the escape; the last session of the Indiana legislature gave him sufficient power to introduce censorship without calling the legislature, and he has written to Pettijohn personally about it. There is considerable unfavorable press comment that they're even thinking about it. "Just now we have about all the censorship situations we can handle."
