Excerpts of the President's News Conference

October 09, 1928

So far as I am advised, we have no official information relative to the action which the French Government is reported to have taken relative to an American newspaperman for publishing some articles relative to the English and French naval agreement. That may be entirely a domestic matter and as such this Government would not be warranted in interfering in it. Of course, we do undertake to protect the legal rights of our citizens when we find on representation that they have been infringed.
