Case agamst

By JANE BARTMAN
A criminal case charging Ann Arbor Argus editor Ken-
neth Kelley with the publication and distribution of an
obscene newspaper was dismissed in District Court Wednes-
day due to a lack of sufficient evidence.
Kelley was arrested Sept. 3 as a result of the publication
of a photograph last August of City Councilman James
Stephenson (R-Fourth Ward) with a superimposed penis
in his hand.
Judge S. J. Elden ruled that the photograph of Stephen-
son was obscene, but that Assistant County Prosecutor Thomas

Now almost three years old, the literary
college's pass-fail grading option may be
in line for considerable expansion this
year.
In a potentially far-reaching proposal,
the economics department faculty has
asked that grading in Economics 201 and
202, the elementary level courses, be done
solely on a pass-fail basis. With the ex-
