PUBLIC OPINION

the publication of books revealing the King's relations with his ministers, which is seldom permitted during his lifetime. It is not unknown for publishers, whether of books or journals, to submit material to the Palace for approval prior to issue.
In the case of films a clause in the Act of 1909, designed to give local authorities power to secure safety from fire, has been used to prevent the screening of films both of the standard and non-inflammable educational kind. The greatest interest attaches, however, to other and unofficial forms of censorship, for this is the most typical method by which opinion is directed in England. The Board of Film Censors, for example, is an unofficial body, representing the trade alone, but its decisions seem to have all the force of law. Yet it does not account to the public for its stewardship; nor has the public any say in its appointment. How was it that the excellent film, The Battleship Potemkin, giving an account of a successful mutiny in the Tsarist fleet, was for long prevented from being publicly shewn? Yet, since it has been permitted there has been no noticeable change in the loyalty of the British Navy. How is it that film accounts of King Edward VIII's meetings with his future wife, as of his wedding, were kept off the British screen? Who determined in I93G that similar news should be cut out of foreign journals before they reached the British public, or that the record of the King's farewell speech, of which over a million sold abroad, should not be available in the country to which it was addressed? This unofficial censorship by a"gentleman's agreement" is-whether in any given instance it be wise or unwise the really interesting feature of the British method. Of the general tendency of the agreement there can be no shadow of doubt. It would be revealing, for example, to make a comparison between the amounts of nationalist
