EXHIBITION OF PICTURES IN PUBLIC PLACES OF AMUSEMENT IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA.

MESSAGE

FROM THE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,

RETURNING

WITHOUT APPROVAL SENATE BILL 2600, ENTITLED “AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE THE COMMISSIONERS OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA TO PREVENT THE EXHIBITION OF OBSCENE, LEWD, INDECENT, OR VULGAR PICTURES IN PUBLIC PLACES OF AMUSEMENT IN THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA."

FEBRUARY 10, 1913.-Read; referred to the Committee on the District of Columbia, and ordered to be printed.

To the Senate:

I return herewith, without approval, Senate bill 2600, entitled "An act to authorize the Commissioners of the District of Columbia to prevent the exhibition of obscene, lewd, indecent, or vulgar pictures in public places of amusement in the District of Columbia."

Upon inquiry, I find that the requirement of section 2, that all picture films shall be submitted to the District Commissioners for investigation and approval before exhibition, is, under present conditions, not only unnecessary but incapable of enforcement without unduly encroaching upon the services of the police force of the District. In this connection I wish to call your attention to the accompanying letter to the Attorney General on the subject from the District Commissioners, dated February 3, 1913.

I beg to suggest that the purpose of this bill may be accomplished by a statute merely prohibiting, under a penalty, the exhibition of objectionable pictures, without the requirement of prior investigation and approval by the commissioners before exhibition, and to recommend the passage of such a measure.

THE WHITE HOUSE, February 10, 1913.

S D-62-3-vol 25-24

WM. H. TAFT.
