Booklet, "THE DEBS DECISION" by Scott Nearing, 48pp., plus separate cover, Published by THE RAND SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCE New York City, 1919. VG. Eugene V. Debs left the Federal Penitentiary in Atlanta, Georgia, on Christmas Day 1921. He had been imprisoned in 1918 under the Sedition Act, for giving a speech against participation in the First World War. President Warren G. Harding commuted his sentence to time served in December 1921. Scholars generally view Debs v. United States (1919), which upheld his conviction in the Supreme Court, as a low-water mark in the protection of free speech during wartime. In 1920, while in prison, Debs again ran for President and received almost 1 million votes.
