"The radical foreign language press during the war
was kept in check by means of the Espionage Act, approved
June 15, 1917, and amended May 16, 1918,
the purpose of which was to protect the interests of
the United States in prosecution of the war. While the
Post Office Department through a rigid enforcement
of this Act was able to prevent the dissemination of
propaganda directed against the Government through
the mails, the publishers of these newspapers and publications
found other ways to get this propaganda into
the hands of their readers."
