Notes

While the author concludes that it is not possible to censor books for children and the answer is to 'provide our children with plenty of good books', the argument reflects later public debates about comics:

'But there are certainly some magazines which could well be vetoed and that are imported--not as literature--but merely as "cheap junk" bought at "job prices," and then resold here at a low price within the reach of a child with a few pennies.

'In this case, the lurid covers and their price are at one and the same time their lure and their danger, and this type of book is well known to many mothers and fathers. They are, to all appearances, gangster stories, but interwoven in the stories are reams of salaciousness definitely written with that purpose.

'From these, neither chilren nor adults can get profit or pleasure, they are not worth the name of literature and should be banned simply as undesirable goods. They are merely money-making stunts, the price of which is the soul of a child and the price at that rate is too hight.'
