PROTECTING 'IMPRESSIONABLE YOUTH'
City Council looks into pornography
P By DANIEL ZWERDLING
Daily News Analysis
Obscenity is an evil almost everyone
talks about-but few people can agree
just what it is.
In Ann Arbor, at least, obscenity has
become one of the most volatile social
issues. And the people who don't like it
say Ann Arbor's obscenity is the Argus
and the White Panther papers.
One White Panther leaflet alone
brought 400 angry, yelling citizens to
City Hall last month-including attorney
Jack Garris who called Panther literature
a "diabolical, political and psychological
plot to destroy the minds of our youths."
Irate citizens are mounting so much
pressure now that City Council may be
forced to pass ordinances clamping

find obscene? Sex, nudity and four-letter
words-which the councilman charges
all figure prominently in Argus and Pan-
"A typical picture in the Argus is a
male with his genital in a discernibly
turgid state," claims Stephenson, refer-
ring to illustrations in one recent article
on the Yippies.
A plethora of state statutes and city
ordinances already forbid the sale or
distribution of obscene materials, but
they are so vague and difficult to enforce
that advocates of a new law say they
don't do the job.
Statute Section 48, for example, pro-
hibits the sale or distribution of "any
obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy or inde-
cent sadistic or masochistic book, mag-
n~inp nnh~lpf n flflnnnplt'nn%,,non a~l
-the material is utterly without re-
deeming social value.
Few publications except the hardest
pornography fail the test-and "not even
the most vocal critics of (White Panther
and Argus literature) have contended
that these statements possessed any pru-
rient appeal," says City Attorney Jerold
"It would not be impossible for a
court to find these obscene," says Lax.
"But prosecution would be difficult since
the White Panther and Argus papers are
artistic, or political."
But local obscenity critics may find
just the type of law they're looking for
in a New York statute-upheld last year
by the Supreme Court--which estab-
lishes different obscenity standards for
miinnr.c -I, h n fnr a Ai ii .
This is the type of ordinance Steph-
enson hopes to put soon on the Ann Ar-
bor books. Now, Michigan law defines
obscenity for minors only as sexual ma-
terial which "corrupts the morals of
youth"-a test which the Supreme Court
has ruled "unconstitutionally vague."
Further legislation, say some city of-
ficials, might raise more questions than
it would solve.
Councilmen aren t sure how they could
restrict sales of publications like the
Argus and Panther literature, for ex-
ample, without also prohibiting books
like "Catcher in the Rye," and magazines
like "Harper's"-which print the gamut of
sexually-oriented four-letter words.
Even now, local ordinances seem to
outlaw Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punish-
