Ambassador Gerrard Objects
to Censorship of the Mali
By Carl W. Ackerman.
Berlin, Jan. 3. (Hy Mail) Ambas
sador (ierai'd has sent sixteen notes to
the foreign office since the beginning
tf the war, protesting against the cen
soring of Knibassy mail at the (ionium
border by the military authorities. Ac
companying each protest was from five
to twenty envelops bearing the mark
of the military censor showing that the
letters were opened under "the
rights of war."
These instniiiMW do not refer to tho
official sealed pouches of the American
government, but only to general cor
respondence to the embassy from the
United States and other countries. This
has applied particularly tii the Ambas
sador's personal mail from the 1'nited
Htntes. The notes were written on the
thoory that the mail of a neutrul am
bassador or embassy is not subject to
censorship even in war time.
No officinl explanation ever has been
made, of the opening of the ambassa
dor's mail, but it is believed this mail,
entering (lennany with all oilier mail,
is opened by Ihe censor, who opens
everything he gets his hands on.
The official mail of the raited Slates
travels by courier. Once every week a
courier comes from London to lloiliu
with a pouch forwurdcl from Washing
ton. Once every week he returns to
lionilnn with n pouch frni Ocrnmnv.
Those pouches are securely scaled and
