Discord in copyland
Employees of the Accu-Copy center, 524 E. William St., walked off
the job yesterday and hit the picket line after an impasse developed in
talks for thesworkers' first contract. "It's not a financial strike - we do
not have financial grievances against the owners. It's a matter of job
security,' said Bill Wilcox, spokesman for the seven striking workers.
Accu-Copy's employees voted unanimously on August 22 to be repre-
sented by Graphic Arts International Union (GAIU) local 289. Talks bet-
ween company and workers began shortly thereafter, but stalled on
issues of guaranteed ork hours. "All (the striking employee') have seen
the money come in and they think there's oodles and oodles of cash, but it
isn't so," said Phil Zaret, co-owner of the shop. "It's unfortunate that the
employees must share in the fortunes of the business" through fluctu-
ating work hours, Zaret added. "They'll have to ride it out." Meanwhile,
the strikers have filed ln unfair labor practice charge against Accu-Copy
for cutbacks in hours the day after the union vote. Negotiator for Accu-
Copy is none other than William Neff, chief bargainer for the University
in last winter's contract talks with service workers, which led to a month-
long walkout.

Biko inquest begins in

PRETORIA, South Africa (AP)--
The day before black activist Steve
Biko died of brain injuries he was
found on the concrete floor of his cell
glassy-eyed, panting and foaming at
the mouth, police witnesses testified
at an inquest yesterday.
The officers also said the
30-year-old leader of South
Africas' black consciousness move-
ment, whose death set off protests
and demonstrations, was kept
naked in his cell and that he had
to be subdued and shackled after he
attacked interrogators during a ques-
tioning session.
The witnesses testified on the first
day of an inquest ordered into Biko's
death Sept. 12 in a Pretoria jail.
An autopsy report said he died of
head injuries.

BIKO WAS the 21st black to die in
police detention in 18 months, and his
death sparked an outcry in South
Africa and abroad. It set off a
progression of protests and crack-
downs culminating in an internation-
al arms embargo voted against South
Africa in the U.N. Security Council.
South African government officials
have maintained that Biko did not
die as a result of police brutality.
Thus the inquest has come to be
viewed as a test of the South African
government's contention that it
maintains a rule of law, whether
anyone likes that law or not.
About 20 spectators and reporters,
about half of them black, attended
the opening session in Pretoria's Old
Synagogue, rented for the inquest
from the Jewish community.

BEFORE THE hearing opened,
Winnie Kgware, first president of the
now-banned Black People's Conven-
tion, raised a portrait of Biko
wreathed in flowers and cried in the
Xhosa language: "What have we
done?" Others responded with black-
power salutes and shouts of "Amand-
la!"--meaning "power."
Biko's mother and widow sat in the
front row of the visitor's gallery
dressed in black. Many other specta-
tors wore tribal costumes.
The police witnesses testified that
Biko was arrested on Aug. 18 at a
roadblock at Grahamstown for
breaking a five-year banning order
restricting him to Port Elizabeth, on
the southeastern coast 50 miles
away. He was transferred the next
day to Walmer police station in Port

y Africa
Elizabeth, questioned for five days
by security police and finally--afte-
he was found on his cell floor--trans'
ported by land 750 miles north to'
Pretoria the day before he died.
MAJ. HAROLD SNYMAN, who led
the interrogation of Biko from Sept. 6
to 11 at the Port Elizabeth security",
police headquarters, testified that"2
Biko was aggressive on the first day-
of questioning and had to be hand- 2
cuffed and put in leg irons.
Snyman said that on the second
day the chains were taken off.
- Suddenly Steve Biko jumped up
from his chair with a wild expression ,
in his eye. He threw his chair at me
where I was standing near the door,"
the major said. t

end after t 1
KANSAS CITY, Kansas (AP)--
After an overturned conviction, a
fight for a change of venue and an
illness that brought yet more delay,
the obscenity re-trial of sex maga-
zine publisher Al Goldstein neared its
end yesterday--almost three years
after he was indicted.
Both sides gave the federal District
court jury their final arguments, and
all that remained before jury deliber-
ations were rebuttal arguments and
the judge's charge to the jury.
Goldstein's lawyer, Harold Price
Fahringer, said he was "not proud of
what's in 'Screw' magazine."
"I'M NOT GOING to stand here
and defend the contents," he said.
"But I am proud of the fact that I live
in a country where I can buy 'Screw'
magazine, or ignore it or throw it
away."
Asst. U.S. Atty. Ben Burgess
argued that "Screw" and "Smut",
another tabloid that Goldstein pub-
lishes in New York, "appeal to lust
and morbid and shameful interest in
sex" and the jurors must draw
the line between "candor and
shame."
"The publications themselves are
the best evidence of obscenity ..
They make every effort to be
offensive," Burgess said.
LAWYERS FOR Goldstein, 41, his
former partner James Buckley, and
their Milky Way Productions Inc.,
argue that censorship and press
freedom are involved in the case, and
they claim the case is being prosecu-
ted unfairly in a conservative area
half a continent away from where
"Screw" and "Smut" are published.
The case rests on a charge that the
defendants mailed 11 obscene issues
of the magazines into Kansas. If
convicted, each would face $65,000 in
fines and 60 years in prison.
The 12-count indictment was hand-
ed up in December 1974 after four
postal inspectors in Kansas subscrib-
ed to "Screw" and "Smut" under

fictitious names anu then returne,

GOLDSTEIN AND Buckley wer
convicted in 1976 in Wichita, but th
verdict was overturned by U.S
District Court Judge Frank Theis
who ordered a new trial. He objecte(
to a prosecutor's argument that
conviction would uphold decency an
keep pornography out of Kansas.
Later, Goldstein's lawyers argue
that an anti-pornography campaigi
by county authorities in Wichita hai
made a fair re-trial there impossible
and Theis moved the case to Kansa;
City.
It was scheduled in April, bu
Goldstein won three more delay,
because he suffers from a rar
sleeping disorder called sleep apneE
syndrome. It can cause the victim ti
stop breathing/while sleeping.

THE KING OF MARVIN GARDENS
(Bob Rafelson, 1972) 7 AND 10:20-AUD. A
Two brothers seek the elusive American Dream. Jack Nicholson as a late-night D.J. is content to
spin his dreams in words, but Bruce Dern has a big deal cooking and wants to cut his brother
in. They meet in Atlantic City-that seedy, rundown playground, immortalized as the fabled city
of MONOPOLY. Powerful acting, faultless direction. "An irresistably fascinating film"-Jay Cocks.
With Ellen Burstyn.
DRIVE, HE SAID
(Jack Nicholson,.1971) 8:45 ONLY-AUD. A
Of the rash of college films to come out of the late 60's, this witty sensitive film was the only honest
one. Typically, it was overlooked. Its story of a college basketball star, who must choose between his
sport and political activism, will strike home for any university student. Bruce Dern's excellent
performance as the coach won the best supporting actor award from the National Society of Film
Critics. WILLIAM TEPPER. KAREN BLACK. ROBERT TOWNE.
