Sedition Trial Will Be Resumed at the End of This Month, Department of Justice Hopes

The Department of Justice expects to be ready by the end of April to resume the mase sedition trial which ended in a re-trial last fall, it was learned today, but difficulties in finding a judge may compel further postponement.

Revision of the trial brief, now under way, will be completed by mid-April The number of defendants is being cut from twenty-six to ten or tewlve, and an intensive hunt is on for a judge. Heavily loaded calendars of District of Columbia judgee may require importation of a judge from another district. So far the search has been without success, so that no definite date can yet be set for the trial.
