THE BOOK LISTS:
Literary Censorship-
Why It Doesn't Work

By DONNA HENDLEMAN
Daily Associate Editor
RETREATING from an untenable position,
the Washtenaw County prosecutor's of-
fice has agreed that local enforcement of the
Michigan law against'obscene literature will
not follow the questionable procedures used
in Wayne County. Instead, Prosecutor De-
Vine now holds that "traditional" steps will
be followed in determining what constitutes
"obscene" literature. This means that be-
fore any book is banned, it will be judged
on its own merits, in court and by a jury.
According to local police officials, Wayne
County's list of objectionable books may be
used as a guide, but a book's appearance on
the list will not constitute a violation of the
law. It is not known whether this new police
stand means that the local crusade against
objectionable literature will be allowed to
die peaceably.
Last week's ruling which gave all book
dealers a month to rid their shelves of of-
fensive fare, still stands. But the danger
involved in using the Wayne list has been
considerably lessened.
More important than the immediate prob-
lem, however, is the principle behind the cen-
sorship pressures. The question posed is as
old as the printing business itself, and the
history of literary censorship is loaded with
offenses against the literate public. Censor-
ship is highly subjective business, and usual-
ly those who read for pleasure or educational
purposes disagree with those who wield the
blue pencils. Hardy, Zola, Flaubert, Joyce,
just to ipention a few, have been challenged
from time to time and in various locales,
for having produced "offensive" works, most
of which have stood the test of time and have
become classics. One of the lesser works
of Ernest Hemingway is on Wayne County's
list. To deny any student access to a Hem-
ingway book, any Hemingway book, is ab-
surd.
The fact is that there is no real agreement
on the meaning of "immorality" in litera-
ture. Without this agreement there can be
no equitable censorship of printed literature,
and outrages are bound to occur.
THE STATUTE upon which the current
dispute is based is one of those laws en-
acted with no eye to practical enforcemept.
First passed in 1857 and most recently re-
vised in 1947, the law is a sweeping prohibi-
tion against importing, printing, publishing,
selling, distributing or even possessing print-
ed matter deemed obscene or immoral. Ob-
scenity is nowhere defined for the purpose of
the statute, its nature being usually left up
to a jury.
An attempt to enforce such a broad pros-
cription can either fall short of its intent
or transgress far beyond reasonable limits.
The process has zig-zagged in both direc-
tions in Detroit, where a shoddy censor-
ship program is all too evident. Since 1950
a group of policemen have been desig-
nated as the Wayne County Police Censor
Bureau. It is this group's job to read new-
ly issued paper-bound books. When the ex-
perts come across something they construe

as "obscene," they refer it to the prosecu-
tor, who in turn decides if a case against
the book will hold up in court. A decision
to the affirmative puts the book on the
list.
The deficiencies of such a scheme are ap-
parent. There were a good many books pub-
lished before 1950 which could conceivably
be listed as objectionable. There are still oth-
ers which are not out in paper-backed edi-
tions, and, of course, there are the pulp mag-
azines which so far, have not been touched.
If the censors are using uniform criteria, it
noes not show on, the list. Hemingway's
"Across the River" and two of James Far-
rell's "Danny O'Neil" books are noted, but
there is no mention of Mickey Spillane. The
total endeavor seems a hodge-podge of a
few tenth rate thrillers and sex stories,
some good realistic literature mistaken for
smut, some books comparatively unknown
but of literary merit, and some poor, but
harmless, novels.
Many people believe censorship is nec-
essary suggest that a more equitable list
could be compiled if the board were com-
posed of better qualified people. But poor as
a police board is, it is doubtful that one
composed of clergymen, teachers, business-
men or even university professors would do
much better. Inevitably mistakes would be
made; people simply do not agree on what
constitutes literary indecency.
In Boston, promoter of the best in
banned books, there is a new scheme by
which the dealers agree among themselves
whether or not to stock a book. This idea
of self-imposed conscience has its draw-
backs, too. Booksellers are apt to fall vic-
tim to intimidation, or to reflect unintelli-
gent more rather than considered judg-
ment. ,
Self-imposed censorship may be what lo-
cal police were aiming for when they an-
nounced their "get-tough" policy. There
is shrewdness in appealing to the book-
sellers' sense of decency; there are degrees of
quality in books and magazines, just as there
are degrees of quality in any merchandise.
But local dealers seem already to deal in
high quality merchandise, and there does
not appear to be any need for a widespread
clean-up in Ann Arbor.
There is one level - the publishers' -
at which censorship could be applied with
less damage than at present. A publishers'
code of ethics could do more to wipe out
pornographic literature than any other
method. Such a code, self-imposed, would
act as a publisher's conscience, and under
it real obscenity, which has no excuse for
being printed, would never reach the mar-
ket. The catch in this scheme, of course,
is the unhappy socio-economic fact that
producing tenth rate pulp pornography is
lucrative business; is doubtful that the
publishers would voluntarily give it up.
Until this is done, however, there will be
no real protection, either from obscene lit-
erature or from the even worse dangers in-
volved in censorship from without.

Three Segments
Of 'U' Life
WITH GREEK WEEK, the Inter-Coouer-
ative Council birthday and Interna-
tional Week all coming together within the
space of two weeks, the campus has a
chance to recognize and evaluate the work
of three major segments of the University
community.
Representing differing conceptions of
college life, the Greek houses and the co-
ops have both enjoyed prosperity in the
last years even in face of increased resi-
dence hall competition. Both groups seemu
able to face further competition, from the
University residences without too disas-
trous results since they offer types of col-
lege life that the dorms could never pro-
vide under the present system.
The Interfraternity Council has complet-
ed a particularly fruitful year under excel-
lent leadership. Rescuing itself from the
lethargy and oblivion which seemed ready
to overtake it a year ago, the IFC has moved
forward organizationally and has provided
an increasingly effective public relations
spokesman for local fraternities. In its con-
cern with internal problems, the IFC did not
pursue the strong anti-bias clause policy
that was hoped for, but the coming year
should bring more work in this area.
Probably the most unique housing groups,
the co-ops for 21 years have given students
the chance to live in self-governed, econo-
mical housing. At the 'same time, they have
stressed the responsibilities which go along
with self-sufficiency and have tried to
maintain democratic standards.
Both the co-ops and Greek houses have
been extremely successful in integrating
their members into campus life and acti-
vities, but the foreign students, who cele-
brate International Week next week, un-
fortunately have not been as successful
in unifying themselves with the campus.
Although the 900 foreign students have a
highly organized social and cultural pro-
gram among themselves, they have never
become as much a part of student life as
might be wished.
The election of Rajesh Gupta to Student
Legislature last fall marked the possible be-
ginning of a new trend in foreign student
participation which was strengthened when
an International Students Association re-
presentative sat on the reorganization com-
mittee. Greater participation in these acti-
vities is certainly possible and deserves con-
tinued consideration, for the foreign stu-
dents potentially have much to offer to the
campus as well as much to gain from fur-
ther activity in student affairs.

A SLEEP OF PRISONERS, presented at
Saint Andrew's Church by The Arts Theater
Club.
CHRISTOPHER FRY has written a mo-
rality play about the nature of man,
about his suffering in "the stresses of this
furnace" the world, and about human un-
derstanding. A vast enterprise for a ninety
minute parable. But Fry carries it off main-
ly by grace of language, wit, and the intense
handling of the four myths which make up
the play's action.
It is the language which carries the bur-
den of the play's meaning, and last night's
performance succeeded only so far as the
actors were able to speak their lines with
clarity and precision. Since there were
times when whole speeches were garbled
by poor diction or swallowed up in the
echoes of the church, I felt it was not a
wholly successful performance. Mr. Jones
did unwarranted violence to his lines, es-
pecially in the earlier portions of the play:

his conception of Cain was my idea of
Caliban. As Abraham he was more suc-
cessful, adding his own impressiveness
to the pobility of the language.
The play tells of four soldiers imprisoned
in a church in enemy territory, and of how
they dream themselves into the four myths-
Old Testament stories embodying basic hu-
man situations. Each soldier has his human
dimension as a prisoner of war; he has also
his allegorical character, the abstract hu-
man quality he personifies as a prisoner of
his own nature and of the world.
David King is the bad brother and the
anguished father, Cain and the passionate,
suffering King of Israel. Peter Able is
marked as the victim and equivocator--
and because of his moral weakness, ulti-
mately the betrayer. He Is Abel, Isaac, and
Absalom. Tim Meadows is God and Christ;
Sgt. Adams is Adam, awaiting orders, ac-
cepting necessity, and unwilling to defy
the universe.
Able, Meadows, and Adams were acted by
John Devoe, Ken Rosbn, and Gerald Rich-
ards respectively, and all performed well
except where they failed to communicate
Fry's rich and intricate verse. Ken Rosen's
voice seemed to overcome best the has-
ards of the poetry, although I objected to
his occasional rustic intonation: his comin'
and goin' and livin'.

Rebuttal to Kidston ...I
To The Editor:
AS A REBUTTAL to Mr. Kid-
ston's expressed opinion in the
May 1st edition of The Daily that
the current bus boy strike does not
involve the Quad residents at
large, I would like to state the fol-
lowing:
As a result of the strike, the
residents of the Quadrangle are
not receiving in full measure
those services for which they have
paid. For example, a portion of
the room and board rates pre-
sumably covers the labor expense
of staffing dining hall facilities
and providing services. When the
residents are asked to bus their
own dishes, this would appear to
be a moral if not a legal breach
of contract on the part of the ad-
ministration, affecting all Quad
residents and not just the strikers.
While only a small number of
the residents of the Quads find it
necessary to work -in the dining
hall to defray the extremely high
costs of obtaining a college edu-
cation, this is not sufficient rea-
son for Mr. Kidston to say that
residents of the quads will not be
concerned over the. cause of strik-
ing busboys, who are their fellow
residents, and whose cause ap-
pears justifiable on all counts.
Further, outside labor is being
brought into the Quadrangles to
break the strike. It appears in-
contestable from the evidence thus
far submitted that this labor is
being paid at a substantially high-
er rate than were the bus boys.l
The question then follows: to
what account will this increased
labor cost be. charged? Is it pos-
sible that these costs will not be
charged to the residence halls bud-
get? Will this policy aid the cur-
rent residence hall financial diffi-
culties?
It would seem that every resi-
dent of the Quadrangles has a
stake in the present situation and
its, outcome. Admittedly the bus
boys have the more vital and dir-
ect stake, but action such as this
cannot be isolated and confined
to them alone. Instead, the cause-
effect relationship of such events
will be reflected eventually in the
status of all Quad residents, bus
boy or not!

In Praise of Kidston .. .
To the Editor:
THE INTER-HOUSE Council
has good reason to be proud
of the man it has selected to lead
it thru the next year. Roger Kid-
ston is indeed one of the most
capable leaders in the Residence
Halls, and the men living in the
Halls candlook forward to a fruit-
ful year.
The Inter-House Council is an
organization with a great poten-
tial for service to the men in the
Residence Halls and the entire
University. We can be certain that
in its relationships with other
campus organizations and with the
University Administration, the
IHC will grow and take the place
in the Michigan community that!
I believe is richly deserves. Cer-
tainly the representatives at Tues-
day night's meeting made a fine
choice of leadership. The IHC and
the campus will gain much in the
next year through Roger Kidston's
leadership.

Festival Reviews . .
To the Editor:
I SMILED when I read motif-'
maddened Tom Reed's review
complaining about the lack of
"central theme orupurpose" in the
May Festival concerts and iden-
tifying himself with the mistreated
"rabble." This was nothing though.

When I read the reviews by Don-
ald Harris and the inimitable Har-
vey Gross the next day I doubled!
up with unforgivable raucous!
laughter. It began with Harris'
mention of "chestnut time," "time
worn" repertory," pageantry seek-
ing audience," and "the ItalianJ
opera singer of the violin" (like
Caruso, Mr. Harris?), but the real
climax was Gross' monumental 1 e-
view, in which he spoke of the
May Festival being "depressing,"
of "depraved motorists," plump1
ladies in long white gloves," "hom-
icidal automobiles," prices at the
State Theater, State Street soda
saloons, the poor acoustics at Hill,
"large padded tomato cans," Ce-
. sare Siepi's "exceptional physique"
"white tights and open shirts" the
draftiness of Hill and incidentally,
his enjoyment ("despite his en-,
vironmental unhappiness) of theF
musical performance.
Are these venerable music crit-
ics simply confused, tired boys who
need a long rest from the demand-
ing rigors of reviewing, or are they
members of a newly-evolving super}
species whom we lowly mortals
cannot hope to understand and
appreciate.

Indeed! Today's sound empha-

"Anna" .. .
To the Editor:
IT IS important in a sophisticat-
ed community like Ann Arbor
to have challenging perceptive
critics. Not only is it important,
but it is impossible to avoid. Re-
cently a splendid example of criti-
cal insight was given in the re-
view of the movie, "Anna."
We should thank Mr. Robert
Holloway for his sympathetic un-
derstanding and his fine grasp of
human relationships. On severtl
points-he achieves a beautiful syn-
thesis of callous incapacity and
pontifical crudity.
The significance of the film, its
charm and colorful hospital scenes
are not considered in his submar-
ginal criticism. The simple pres-
entation of personalities and their
soft shadowed development is seen
as "straight line, onecolor atti-
tudes." Further he says, these at-
titudes "are never bent, or shaded
by anything the picture produces
in the way of complication." But
has Mr. Holloway considered the

complication of trying to commu-
nicate a gentle tone or shading to
the highly polished critic in the
audience. Which weighs more
heavily, the subtlety of the drama
or the flood of a critic's personal-
ity?
The critic states in an obsequious
tone, "a kindly farmer simply a
lover of goodness." The farmer in
question was the "good" individ-
ual. in opposition' to the amoral
bartender in the contest over the
lusty Miss Mangano.
Silvano Mangano is divided be-
tween her physical attraction for
the bartender and her desire to
find a personal feeling of moral
integrity. The farmer offers the
understanding she desires. He rep-
resents a man of courage and mor-
al responsibility. His love is a gen-
uine belief in her basic sincerity
and will to change. Possibly he
also finds her attractive.
The critic pushes aside.the quiet
excellence of the film, and attacks
its English sound track, its dubbed
in voices, and everything else but
the ushers.
The Daily is not held for the
views its writers claim, but a good
newspaper seeks a staff at least
superficially capable. A review
which laughs at morality, derides
innovating film techniques, and
does nothing but b'etray the author,
is not a mark of journalistic com-
petence.

On Censorship ...
To the Editor:
THE ONLY plausible definition
of pornography is "that which
throws dirt on sex." And I remem-
ber Mencken having said that
there is no one so foul, so obscene,
as a vice-crusader. This is the voi'e
of wisdom; for the censors, the
vice-crusaders, do indeed degrade
sex, and seriously. They are the
real pornographers. Beside these,
the writers of modern fiction are
clean and healthy. The mere exist-
ence of the Legion of Decency does
more to befoul the sex experience
than a thousand erotic novels.
Personal morality is not the bus-
iness ofthe state; it is not the ous-
iness of women's clubs. It is abso-
lutely outside the province of.any
social unit larger than the family.
By this I mean that if certain par-
ents do not want their children to
read certain books, they must see
to it that the children do not.
They have no right whatsoever to
meddle in the morality of others.
Censorship is tyranny, no matter
what is censored. Libel and slander
are the only exceptions. This inva-
sion of privacy, this encroachment
on personal liberty, must be ap-
posed with all the force of atavis-
tic devotion to dying ideals.
But that is only half the story.
Our town, our county - with the
charms of spring at hand-has met
with further demonstration of the
sickness, the inner rot, of our
society. Obscenity, like commun-
ism, is a mere symbol, a mask for
the crusaders of crypto-fascism,
the mongers of thought-control.
Of course it was only a question
of time. The enemies of freedom
are the big dogs now, and they will
not rest until our minds are fumi-
gated, until the corpus of democ-
racy lies in state upon a slab.
The books are burning. This is
the beginning of the end. And the
end will surely come unless we, the
people- and especially we in the
universities-begin to realize that
our freedoms are being reduced to
mere verbiage, mere sops to the
memory of our forebears. A free-
dom compromised is a freedom no
longer. There are great risks at-
tendant upon liberty, but none so
great as to warrant tyrany, an
censorship is tyranny.

Washington Merry-Go-Round

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

WASHINGTON-Biggest hassle inside the
Defense Department, following Eisen-
hower's military reorganization, is to pick
the new Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Since Generals Bradley, Vandenberg
and Collins are nearing the ends of their
terms anyway, this means Admiral Wil-
liam Fechteler would be the only joint
chief to be fired outright. However, Secre-
tary of Navy Bob Anderson objects to fir-
ing Fechteler and was summoned to Naples
last week to thresh the matter out with
Secretary of Defense Wilson and Admiral
Robert Carney, the man touted as Fech-
teler's successor.
Meanwhile, Ike has made it clear that he,
himself, will appoint the new chairman of
the Joint Chiefs, though he has promised
Secretary Wilson not to pick someone Wilson
can't work with.
Inside fact is that Ike's favorite is General
Carl "Toughy" Spaatz, the retired air force
general and Pennsylvania Dutchman, who
worked so well with Ike in Europe during
the invasion. Secretary Wilson, believe it or
not, leans toward Admiral Arthur Radford,
the redheaded trouble maker who attacked
the air force and set the Pentagon on its ear
in the "Battle of the B-36."
Another Pentagon mogul opposing Spaatz
is Deputy Secretary of Defense Kyes who
fears that "Toughy," an old personal friend
of Ike's, will go over Wilson's head to the
White House.
PRESIDENTIAL BREAKFAST
BREAKFASTING with Senator Bridges of
New Hampshire the other day, the Presi-
dent dropped further hints regarding the
men he wants to run the armed services.
Chief of Staff of the Air Force, he indi-
cated, will probably be General Nate Twin-
ing, though General Ben Chidlow, now in
Colorada Springs, is also under considera-
tion. Ike said he considered it. Gen. Lauris
Norstad the top young officer of the air
force, though he needed more seasoning.
Ike stated quite bluntly that he was not

NATO. If Clark is picked, then Gruenther
would take over Clark's command in the
Far East.
Note-Eisenhower made it plain that in
reorganizing the Joint Chiefs of Staff he
was following the philosophy and advice of
the man who has now come to be literally
co-President-Senator Bob Taft. Taft has
been urging that the Pentagon be turned
back to civilian control and that the Joint
Chiefs of Staff play a decided second fiddle
to the civilian Secretary of Defense. Under
Roosevelt, and especially under Truman, it
was the Joint Chiefs of Staff who ran the
show.
TEMPEST AT UN
IT NOW DEVELOPS that Andrei Vishin-
sky did not talk, about Russian peace
when he first returned from Moscow nearly
as much as reported in the press or as the
State Department believed.
What happened was that Sen. Cabot
Lodge,' our hard-working ambassador to
the United Nations, got a little optimistic.
At a closed meeting of the Security Coun-
cil, just after Vishinsky returned from Sta-
lin's funeral, the Russian envoy came up to
Lodge and said:
"Hello, Mr. Lodge. I'm certainly happy to
see you." And he pumped his hand at great
length with an air of genuine cordiality.
Lodge took this as an optimistic sign and
telephoned the White House. As a result
Ike passed word out around the cabinet
table that Vishinsky was in a much more
cordial mood and some encouraging devel-
opments were expected.
Shortly thereafter Vishinsky telephoned
Lodge that he wanted to visit him. Again
Lodge got enthusiastic and phoned Wash-
ington.
When Vishinsky arrived to keep his ap-
pointment, however, he talked about the
weather, about his trip to New York,
about the nice spirit around the United
Nations, and how well Ambassador Lodge
looked. On the issue of peace, he said
nothing.
