Jury selection commences
in Cincinnati obscenity trial

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Potential
jurors in an obscenity trial involving
Robert Mapplethorpe's sexually ex-
plicit photos were asked yesterday
whether they look at Playboy
magazine or attend arts fund-raisers.
Many questioned during the first
day of jury selection said they'd seen
such adult magazines as Playboy,,
Penthouse, and Hustler, but said
they didn't subscribe. None ac-
knowledged having taken an art class;
br attending a fund-raiser for the arts.
The Contemporary Arts Center

and its director, Dennis Barrie, were
charged in April with pandering ob-
scenity and displaying nude photos
of children. The photographs were
from the exhibit "Robert Map-
plethorpe: The Perfect Moment"
The seven-week exhibition of
photographs by Mapplethorpe, who
died of AIDS in March 1989, at-
tracted a record crowd of more than
80,000 people to the gallery last
spring.
About 150 gay-rights and anti-
censorship demonstrators protested

the trial outside the Hamilton
County Courthouse from mid-morn-
ing through the noon hour yesterday.
They sometimes disrupted traffic,
but there were no arrests.
The charges are both misde-
meanors. If convicted, Barrie faces a
possible fine of $1,000 and six
months in jail on each count. The
gallery could be fined $5,000 on
each count.
Jury selection was expected to
continue through today, with testi-
mony lasting into next week.

COURSE

"I would hate to see them pro-
mulgated as a solution to the per-
ceived problem," he said.
Tim Bahti, professor of German
Literature, questioned why the diver-
sjty issue takes precedence over other
important issues.
Bahti believes American history
should be a University requirement
since none of the students in a
course he teaches knew the date of
the end of the Civil War.
Another forum to debate the di-
versity requirement will be held on
Tuesday, Oct. 2 from 4:00 p.m. to
5:30 p.m. in Auditorium C of An-
sell Hall. Students and faculty are
encouraged to attend, said David
Shoem, assistant dean for students in
their first and second years.

president additional powers. They
said Gorbachev did not deserve such
authority because he was not elected
by direct vote of the people.
"The people don't trust Gor-
bachev!" shouted a group of demon-
strators outside the Kremlin's

Spassky Gate. The held signs say-
ing, "A President - Not an Em-
peror" and "All Decrees of the Presi-
dent are Battles Against Democracy."
The legislature voted 305-46,
with 41 abstentions, to allow Gor-
bachev the special powers until
March 31, 1992. The time limit was
intended to cover a 500-day eco-
nomic reform plan, should one be
approved.

Doug Sprague, another
member of Sigma Chi, said, "I
think it's not a tough transition.
We've always had soft drinks and
a keg, and now everyone's
drinking soft drinks. The
numbers on the first night might
be a little down. "

cause the cutbacks were implemented
after the city's school budget had
been approved. Benjamin said the
suit will provide no immediate relief
in the budget crisis.
The final count of the vote was
8108 against and 5860 for the pro-
posed increase, approximately 15
percent of registered voters.

she said.
"Any time a country gets in-
volved militarily, you have to ad-
dress suspicions that it is trying to
distract its populace fromproblems
at honre" Crystal commented, refer-

ring to bxti Iraq's and the United
States' justification for the military
buildup in the Gulf.
Admiral Fine worked in the Cen-
ter for Defense Information and acted
in combat situations during the Ko-
rean and Vietnam wars. He has
served as Director of Fiscal Man-
agement for the Chief of Naval Op-
erations in Washington, D.C. and

frequently lectures on federal budget
and defense issues.
Fine explained the reasons for the
American presence in the Gulf in
economic terms. "Clearly the reason
for the conflict is oil, lifestyle,
money, and who controls the most
important product... in the western
world," he said.
