3. The guaranties of the Fourth Amendment are to be liberally construed to prevent impairment of the protection extended. Id.

5. The evidence upon which a search warrant is based must be such as would be competent in a trial before a jury and would lead a man of prudence and caution to believe that the offense was committed. P. 287 U. S. 128.
