THE RIGHTS OF CITIZENS. 101

The law does not interdict the right of public
meeting.

(g) The liberty of the press is not
guaranteed by law. Press matters are regulated
by administrative legislation, which, whilst
recognising the right of every Finnish citizen
to publish his ideas on all scientific objects,
obliges printers to submit their works to the
press censors before offering them to the
public. Periodical publications likewise
require a preliminary authorisation ; each
number is submitted to the censor before
appearing.

(h) There are no class privileges in the
matters of contributions or military service.

(i) Neither are there any class privileges
or distinctions as to admission to Government
offices or employment.

(h) The public schools are open to the
children of all classes of the population.

(/) Liberty of conscience is recognised in
principle.
