Abstract

This letter is from a writer representing the newspaper and the National Organization for Decent Literature addressing another writer who disagrees with them making a list of 600 pieces of literature that are indecent and therefore should not be sold publicly. The article breaks down the components of how the organization judges materials to be indecent and supports the necessity of censorship in light of the literature that young children are reading.
