£1000 Damages In London Libel Action PATRIOTISM AFFIRMED LONDON, July 12. Damages of £1000 and costs were awarded by the High Court to-day in the libel action against the London News Chronicle by Frederick A. Voigt, editor of the journal Nineteenth Century And After. Voigt complained that an article in the News Chronicle on July 10, 1944, impugned his patriotism and imputed that he was a mischiefmaker in wartime in the affairs of the United Nations.

Mr. Justice Birkett, giving judgment, said Voigt had been an implacable enemy of Germany, and had been one of the first to draw attention to the dangers and horrors of the Nazi regime. The damages were awarded jointly between Voigt and his coplaintiffs—the proprietors of the Nineteenth Century and Constable and Company, printers—against the printers and publishers of the News Chronicle, and Cedric Belfrage, writer of the article. A stav of execution was granted.
