Censor

Wilstach sends McKenzie a copy of a recent article by Harold Nicholson, outlining the pros and cons of censorship. Nicholson seems to conclude that he would permit censorship and offers an alternative system in which there would be a censorship jury that could suppress any book, play or film that was voted to be unacceptable by two-thirds of the jury, which should be comprised of people between the ages of 30 and 45. The article is included.
