As most MR readers know, Carl Braden, Louisville newspaperman, was recently sentenced to 15 years in jail and a fine of $5,000, allegedly for sedition but actually for the "crime" of helping a Negro buy a house in a white neighborhood. Latest developments in the case are set forth in the following letter from Anne Braden, Carl Braden's wife, which was received just as we were about to go to press. We take this opportunity to underline Mrs. Braden's appeal for financial assistance: we are convinced that there is no more important civil liberties case before the American courts today. Contributions should be sent to Anne Braden, P. O. Box 1302, Louisville, Kentucky. —The Editors
