(/Vj—As the result of a recent U. S. Supreme Court, case, you may henr a lot of debute these days on the real meaning of the cherished American expression: "This Is the United stnles. I can say anything I please!" Everyone knows thnL (he right of free speech Is not unlimited. fn trying to polont out where (he liinHs lie, the supreme court for many years has followed a test devised by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes. \ Spraking for a iiniinhnous court Sti what is known as the Schenck ease, Holmes declared: "The most stringent protection of free speech would nnt protect n man In falsely shouting fire iti n theater and causing oantc. "The question in every case is whether the words used arc used in such circumstances and are of such a nature as to create a clear and present clunker tlial they will bring about the substantive evils that Congress has a mht lo iire- vent. it Is n quest Ion of proximity and degree." Lawyers call it (he "clear and present danger test." U applies prM-*ici'!nrly in a case \vhere a viola- fion of taw is induced by a speech The test written by llolmrs Is used to detrcmine Lbc nowcr of the authorities lo decide whether the .epeech Itself fs an offence, ^ In the Srhenck case, the supreme " roiirt upheld convictions involving Incitement to resist draf.

Hie conviction of the Hev Arthur TermlnleHo for R fiery sueech made three years ago In a Chicago auditorium. Justice Douglas, speaking for the majority, said the disorderly conduct ordinance under which the Catholic priest was fined S1CO contains parts that are uncon-stiUrUcm- al. as they were construed by the trial judge In Chicago. Douglas said the ordinance, as explained by the trial judge to the jury, "permitted conviction of Ter- rmniello if his speech stirred people to anger, invited public distrust, or brought about a condition of unrest." Conviction on any of those grounds, Douglas said, may not stand. How rioes this sou a re ivtth the clear ami present danger test? A sampling of newspaper editorial opinion on the subject shows Wtbe same oonstrasling views "those expressed by Use court's majority and minority opinions. For instance, the St. Louis Globe Democrat said the decision "would justify agitators irfio intice to riot.' But the Miami Herald baid it "is along the historic path we have moved as people." The trfal court heard evidence tha't stink bombs, bottles and "brickbats were hurled around the Chicago auditorium. Twenty-eight windows we r e brok en.

Justice Jaekson, writing the sharpest ol three opinions dissenting with Wong-Ins, in effect cried out that if ever there wns an instance of clear danger, the Chicago meeting YRS it Jackson made the stinging charge that the supreme court has now "silently abandoned" the longstanding clear and present danger test and "substituted for the purpose of this case a n 1111 ex pr esscd but more stringent teat." Has the clear and present danger test actually been abandoned? Douglas did not say so in his majority opinion.
