Because of the mildness of our laws of libel and slander, he said freedom of speech goes uncheckec except by the good sense of the American people. "Any person, is constitutional!., entitled to criticize and call to account the highest and the lowes in the land--save only in one exception. For be it noted that the constitution itself protects senators and representatives and provides that 'for any speech or debate in either house they shall not be questioned in any other place. And the immunity is most carefully not extended to either the chief justice or the president." Press Not Curtailed He said he took it that "no sensible man or woman" believed that freedom of the press had been curtailed or threatened or that it should be. "Representative democracy will never tolerate suppression of true news at the behest of government." Other scheduled speakers at the .anniversary ceremony included Chief Justice Hughes, Speaker Bankbead of the house of representatives and Senator Key Pittman (D.-Wev,). .
