30 Defendants Prosecuted Under The Smith Act For WWII Sedition

The case of the U.S. Government vs. 30 assorted defendants (accused of conspiring to overthrow the United States for a Nazi set-up, largely by insidious activity among our military forces) comes to bar. The defendants are a virile lot, all coolly aware of the serious charges against them—excepting Mrs. Lois de Lafayette Washburn of Chicago, she fascist salutes so much that the others avoid her. As the trial opens, history is made, for this is the largest number of defendants ever arraigned in an American sedition trial. Some of the defendants were Joe McWilliams, Lawrence Dennis, Elizabeth Dilling and others. The prosecutor was O. John Rogge.
