that this was for the purpose ot bring

In suits for divorce, as In other tin

grant everywhere wide discretion to

everywhere to suppress the decree, a
well as the evidence and to seal the
whole record file so that K never ran

practice has prevailed In Now York
City for a long time, though It wn
not brought to general public notice
until census officials sent by President
Rooserelt to obtain statistics ot di
vorce found themselves confronted in
New York with sealed record In
locked safes. These cases are Invari
ably those of rich and prominent fam
ilies, or parsons possessing an equal
Influence with the courts. This Is a
shameful abuse for protection of privi
leged classes of a law strained from
the original purpose of protecting pub
lic morals. It Is one thing to prevent
demoralizing recital In open court and
another to cover up evil whose exam
pie would be wholesome to society
