'The Seven Minutes'
Out in -Paperback

For 20 weeks a best seller, draw-
ing widest attention in its expose
of the manner in which censorship
can work in the controversy over
pornography, "The Seven Min-
utes," by Irving Wallace, is made
available by Simon and Schuster
as a pocket book and must be
rated among the most popular and
still best selling paperbacks.
Defense and prosecution, the
court actions, the developments
behind the scenes that throw light
on the much-debated issue of
pornography, combine to make
Wallace's a significant novel for
our- time.

ing—it can be tasted, but not ex-
