The high court ruled last
month that cities and states could
decide what should be banned
as obscene based on "average
p e r s o n s applying commun-
ity standards." The new devision
threw out the older "rule-of-
thumb" that material must be
"utterly without redeeming social
value" to be judged obscene.
In some states such as Texas

and Colorado, existing laws,
made in accordance with the old
"social value" rule, rendered
crackdowns impossible pending a
change in the laws. Because of
the vagueness of the "commun-
ity standards" ruling, many au-
thorities were cracking down on
obvious hard-core pornography
but were hesitant to move against

Abernathy resigns
The Rev. Ralph Abernathy announced yesterday he plans to
step down from his post as president of the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference (SCLC). Abernathy headed SCLC for five
years, since the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in April
1968. "The financial income at SCLC has been on a steady decline
for the last several years," he told a news conference in Atlanta.
"I am unable to proceed any further without adequate staff."
U.S. uses kisses,
French get T-shirts
PARIS (UPI) - Paris looks like an American college campus
this summer.
The big fashion sensation for both males and females on the
streets of Paris as well as on the Riviera beaches is American T-Shirts
emblazoned with--could this be France?-the names of U. S. Univer--
THE ACADEMIC T-SHIRT craze marks the third consecutive year
that French summer fashions have been stolen from the young of
the United States.
Last summer the French dressed like cowboys in faded blue jeans,
the raggedier the better (still in style).
The year before, the big uni-
n-sex summer fad was American
GI uniforms and insignia (now
M C ic icn out of style).

the year in June with 8.5 per
cent of the state's labor force
unable to find work, the Michi-
gan Employment Security Com-
mission (MESC) said yesterday.
The June jobless total of 323,800
was the result of the "normal
seasonal gain of new job seekers-
mainly students seeking summer
jobs and recent graduates search-
ing for permanent employment,"
said MESC Director S. Martin

rate was nearly double the 4.8
per cent national average for
June, the first time in three
years the national jobless rate
has fallen below five per cent.
Taylor noted that although the
unemployment rate jump signi-
ficantly, the number of persons
employed increased for the sixth
straight month with 17,000 more
people employed in June than in
