8 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS THURSDAY, OCTOBER 2. 1951 Jefferson Dispute With Ho mi I tor Brought Press Freedom Amendment AP Xrwsfpaturc* NEW YORK-An unrelrhratrrJ dispute led by two rarly Ameri- rans rrnrhed a crlrbratrri climax in New York J6.T ynars < IKO and resulted in n written endowment of freedom for the nation's press. Without this endowment, the newspaper yon are reading midht be vastly diflerenl. On one side of the argument was Thomas .leflerson who helieved the nation's new eonstilution needed amending to provide specifically for press freedom, amoiiK other things. Opposed to .Jefferson w a s Alexander Hamilton who. although THOMAS JEFFERSON in favor of an unrealreted press, said such an amendment was unnecessary. The constitution ratified by the stages a year earlier did not guarantee an uncontrolled press because Hamilton and his followers thought this freedom could better be attained If Con- ALEXANDER HAMILTON gross were left to legislate on its behalf. | thinking and pressed hard for ; his amendment. i Hamilton claimed such a pro| vision "' * * would be dangerous. (Ill would even contain various I exceptions to powers not granted; and on this very account would allord a colorful pretext to claim mure than were granted. "For why declare that things i shall not be done which there is J nn power to do?" Hamilton asked. • "Why. for instance, should It be | sairl that liberty of the press j shall not fie restricted when no ! power is given by which restrictions mav be imposed?" * * * * ] nrc.NPITK these eloquent words, ! Jefferson, who now had the support of several states, persisted in his IIKIII for the written guarantee. He once said "if it were left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspaper without government, r should not hesitate for n moment to choose the latter." The great debate went from warm to hot during the period it con tinned, causing political ramifications and pitting Jefferson and Hamilton against each other time and again. * * * * FINALLY, on Sept. 25, 1789, it was clear that Jefferson hud won. On that date, 163 years ago today, the l-'irsl Congress met. here and its firs! session agreed to submit 12 constitutional amendments to the \:\ states for ratification. The slates declined to approve the first two proposed amendments bill ratified the other 10 called the Hill of Rights, the first of which includes Jeffeson's cherished clnuse providing for freedom of the press. It reads: "Congress shall make no law * * * abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press * * *."

MY RECORD "pen The "Council of State Chambers of Commerce" after selecting the "14 most Important spending bills" In the 1951 session of Congress and checking the record of all Congressmen, In December, 1951, gave this report to the press. Vursell voted 13 times for economy on these bills and only once for what they termed a spending bill. The exception was a bill affecting the veterans. May I point out that on those 13 bills I voted ngnlnst spending over $13 billion dollars, and that I helped to cut over $5 billion dollars out of the President's 1051 budget. I also helped to cut over $10 billion dollars out of the President's $85y 2 billion dollar budget In this year's session of Congress. If re-elected, I will continue voting for strict economy In Government. It's the only road to lower taxes. i r Charles W. Vursell REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE FOR RE-ELECTION TO CONGRESS 1 fvO»«^.
