A report on a speech given by Cleveland Press editor, Louis B. Seltzer, where he outlines the three important duties that a newspaper should perform. When asked about the Sheppard case he said, "The circumstances immediately surrounding the murder of Mrs. Sheppard convinced us that unless the 'protective shield' placed around the case was broken there was no possibility of its ever being solved" and he adds, "we believed that The Press' larger obligation in this case was to the whole community."
