Court Decides Obscene Books

WASHINGTON (RI - The Supreme Court ruled today that

of freedom of speech and press.
In three separate rulings, the court decided to uphold:

Two IBM Electric Document-
Originating Machines are rapidly
revamping registration.
They point the way to a definite
reduction in size and possible eli-
mination of the "railroad ticket,"
current form filled out by all stu-
dents prior to registration
Used for the first time at the
University last week, the machines
filed, counted, and punched cards
for 6,306 summer session students
at Waterman Gymnasium. Total
summer enrollment yesterday
reached 7,304, with 148 at Flint
College and an estimated 850 at
other centers in the state.
Enrollment To Hit 10,008
Enrollmtnt figures are not com-
plete, but N. Edd Miller, assistant
summer session director, estimated

that final enrollment figures will
equal last year's total of 10,008.
Registration for 1957 summer
session was a joy to most students.
Those who attend regular fall and
spring semesters found no long
lines, quick checking service, and
open sections.
The IBM machines were a pleas-
ant surprise, eliminating the stan-
dard line of students bending over
each other's backs to fill in the
IBM fee cards.
Size To Be Reduced
Doris Mann, University Tabu-
lating Service operations super-
visor, yesterday said size of the
railroad tickets will definitely be
cut down "soon." She said "We
also hope to eventually eliminate
the railroad tickets and replace
them with a IBM card packet."

Construction Begins Again
As Building Strike Ends
Construction of University buildings is again underway after a
strike halted operations for 25 days.
Buildings affected were: Undergraduate Library, old Ann Arbor
High School, Medical Science Building, and Fluids Building on North
Assistant to the Vice-President John G. McKevitt said the strike
had not affected the building schedule, and the contractors still plan
-*to finish construction on time. Any

The packet will consist of sev-
eral cards which students wil
hand in at registration. They will
involve a minimum of filling in
and in some cases, only a name
will be required.
Assistant Director of Registra-
tion and Records Wesley Kurshild.
gen said "We are now out of the
experimental stage" with the IBMV
machines, known as "No. 519" tc
the tabulating service.
Kurshildgen said the University
"resorted to the IBM machines out
of necessity and will increase their
use" where feasible.
Students Given Cards
At last week's registration, stu-
dents were given four IBM cards
which they handed to an operator
of the machine. The operator, Miss
Mann explained, put the cards in
the machine and data from the
firrt card was punched into the
First card, she said, goes to the
registrar's office. Second card is
retained by cashier. Third card is
the student's receipt. Fourth card
is kept by the cashier.
Cards one and four go to the
tabulating service where they are
separated and counted.
Under the new system, students
will not have to fill in IBM fee
cards as they have done in the
An additional machine, known
as "No. 26" takes care of students
whose status has changed by
punching the changes on the cards.
"No. 26" is a key-punch machine
machine which requires an opera-
tor to punch out the information
on a keyboard. "No. 519" is a
gang-punch machine which elimi-
nates keyboard work.

D. L. Burton
A ddresses
A conference series for English
teachers from the surrounding
area and Canada was inaugurated
eyesterday ty Dwight L. Burton,
who lectured in Auditorium C,
Angell Hall, on "Literature and
the Heightened Mind."
Burton, editor of,"The English
Journal," is also contributing
author to "The English Language
Arts in the Secondary School,"
and former chairman of the Eng-
lish department at the University
of Minnesota High School.
The 45-minute elcture reminded
the 100 teachers present that de-
velopment of intellectual maturity
was their responsibility, beginning
in the junior high school.
Burton stressed importance of
not following strictly such teach-
ing aids as ready-made anthol-
ogies, but rather varying the ma-
terial with related literature.
"The student needs to learn
early that reading of everyday
happenings in books needs to be
interpreted to allegorical levels
or ideas," Burton went on to say,
"and it s the prime responsibility
of the high school teacher that
this is done."

loss in finances, he said, will affec
only the companies contracted.
All work on the buildings ceased
May 14, when local carpenters and
laborer's union struck for higher
wages after their contract ran out
May 1.
June 8, the carpenters and labor-
ers compromised on their demand
for a 21-cent-an-hour increase,
and settled for a 16-cent boosi
now, with additional raises before
next May.
Washtenaw County Contractors
Association's petition to seek a
temporary injunction to restrain
the carpenter's union from nego-
tiating with individual contrac-
tors was ruled out by the Circuit
Reconstruction of old Ann Arbor
high is scheduled for next Sep-
tember, and the wing of the
building for later in the fall. Work
on the Medical Science Building
was far enough ahead, according
to Mr. Mckevitt, so there will be
no postponement of completion
Five Honorary
Degrees Given
By University
The University gave the follow-
ing five honorary degrees at the
June 15 commencement cere-
monies :
Ernest R. Breech, chairman of
the board of Ford Motors Co. since
1955 was cited for international
recognition of "his ability to plan
and to succeed," and received a
doctor of laws degree.
George F. Kennan, former am-
bassador to Russia, was honored
because ". . . having played a major
role in the wqrld events of the last
quarter century, he has devoted his
genius to record them with the
scholar's insight and the philo-
sopher's wisdom." He received a
doctor of laws degree

western University president since
1949, received a doctor of laws
degree and was cited as dedicating

which thirteen other major league
clubs sought his services.
The 20-year-old junior from
Flint recently had been elected
captain of next year's team, and
Coach Ray Fisher didn't take the
loss of his star any too lightly,
"They use the Armyhthreat as a
pry," said Fisher. "They' sell the
youngsters on giving up college by
telling them they ought to get
established in baseball before they
get their service call. It isn't right."
Pat Mullin, who was responsible
for inking Boros' signature, was
here with general manager John
McHale at the Michigan-Wiscon-
sin game, but at that time refused
to make any comments whatsoever
as to possibilities of signing a{
Michigan player.
After having him on the roster
for less than 72 hours, Boros was
used as a pinch-hitter against the
Yankees, and Tighe decided to
give him a starting berth at third
base last Saturday night at Balti-;
Boros is currently the regular
third-baseman for the Bengals.
He went hitless in four times upl
last night at Baltimore, and is1
currently batting .151, with twoI
hits in 13 at-bats.
It is ironical that Boros has
temporarily taken the third basel
spot from Rene Bertola, for Ber-7

3. A New York law which per
mits issuance of injunctions by
judges against distribution and
sale of publications they find to
be obscene.
Justice Brennan, who spoke for
the majority in the federal and
California cases, said it was the
first time the question of whether
obscenity falls within the area
protected by the First Amend-
ment had ever been squarely pre-
sented to the high court.
He said, however, that expres-
sions found in numerous of its
opinions have "always assumed
that obscenity is not protected by
the freedoms of speech and
Brennan said it is apparent that
the unconditional phrasing of the
First Amendment was not in-
tended to protect every utterance.
The court divided 6-3 in up-
holding validity of the federal ob-
scenity statute. The law makes
unlawful the mailing of "every ob-
scene, lewd, lascivious or filthy
book, pamphlet, picture, letter,
writing, print or other publication
of indecent character."
The decision upholding the fed-
eral obscenity law was given in
the case of Samuel Roth, New
York publisher who was con-
victed of sending obscene litera-
ture through the mails. He re-
ceived a five-year sentence and a
$5,000 fine.
The court divided 7-2 in uphold-
ing the California law.
The court divided 5-4 in up-
holding the New York law pro-
viding for issuance of Injunctions
against distribution and sale of
publications found to be obscene
by a judge.
The decision on the New York
law was challenged in an appeal
by Kingsley Books, Inc., Louis
Finkelstein and Martin Kleinberg,'
all of New York City.
Justice Matthew M. Levy of the
New York County Supreme Court
ruled the books were plainly ob-
scene and presented "dirt for dirt's
sake." He banned their sale and
ordered the volumes de troyed.
