(From the deposition of Edward Marshall; Attorney Kirkland for The Tribune questioning; Mr. Marshall answering)
Q: Will you tell us, Mr. Marshall, just what discussion you had with Mr. Ford personally regarding this first part of the article, where it says: "He looked out of the window, saying: 'To my mind the word 'murderer' should be embroidered in red letters across the breast of every soldier.'" Now tell us just what discussion you had with Mr. Ford about that?
A: I believe that that statement is in a sense an inaccuracy, although not in a [page 2] journalistic sense an inaccuracy.
Q: Tell us what discussion you had with Mr. Ford?
A: I believe that that statement was made to me by Miss Jane Addams when I went to see her in company with Norman Hapgood.
Q: That does not answer my question.
A: And that the thing clung in my mind, and that after going to Detroit I mentioned this to Mr. Ford and he agreed with it, that he consented to its use.
MR. KIRKLAND: I move to strike out the part about the discussion with Miss Addams as not responsive.
THE WITNESS: It originated with Miss Jane Addams.
