Our Daily Bread Sliced Thin by The Editor Alex. H. Washburn 'Free Press'ho x license to print filthy words Editor The Star: I recently read a copy of your editorial dated Monday, Oct. 28, concerning the University of Arkansas Traveler and was very' disturbed about your views. While it is true that something should and must be done about the language the Traveler sometimes uses, I strongly disagree with your opinion of closing the paper down. The University paper serves as a communication center 1 for approximately If,000 students and keeps the campus informed of current and upcoming events around the campus. Would it not be simpler to fire the current staff and appoint a new one with new writing standards and journalistic procedures than to close the paper down and disrupt a University communications system that keeps more people informed than the Hope Star? Suppose The Star were closed down beacnse of dirty language. How would the people of Hope keep informed of the local events of the past, present, and future. My point is simply: Why penalize a university for the actions of a few individuals? And are the dirty-mouthed kids who are here only because their parents are picking up the tab, the Traveler staff, or is that in reference to everyone on campus? Many students have earned scholarships and many more worked all summer to earn enough money to get back to school. Is this in reference to these people, too? So you see, I strongly disagree with your article, because , like in our present democratic system of government, you don't Just simply close it clown and forget It, but you seek to make changes and better the outcome. Sincerely, BILL MOORE Nov. 4, 1974 Box 117 Hotz Hall University of Arkansas Fayetteville, Ark. 72701 The salient fact our Fayetteville correspondent overlooks is that when the framers of the U.S. Constitution added the First Amendment guaranteeing a free press they never imagined their handiwork would be perverted into a license for pornography. Nor have succeeding generations of Americans—whether journalists of not—ever bought that outrageous notion. Throughout U.S. history we have had laws covering obscenity in the general press— and postal regulations against sending obscene newspapers through the second-class mail. The Star is a family newspaper, and a major obligation, as with all general newspapers, is to keep reporting language decent. The price of press freedom is the obligation to be just that- decent. If The Star is a vital communication link for the people of its trade ares, and the Arkansas Traveler holds the same position with the students on the Fayetteville campus, then how is the Traveler to be excused for violating journalistic ethics and poisoning the minds of its young readers? Our correspondent's suggestion that the proper course to take against the Traveler is to fire the staff rather than suspend the paper would be acceptable except for this fact: From where we sit, and from what an unimpeachable informant in Fayetteville tells us, about the only way you're going to get rid of the present Traveler staff is to shut the paper down. The University of Arkansas is a tax-supported school, and if the students can't reform policies of their own press then they deserve to lose it. We stand pat on our editorial of Oct. 28. The continuance of filth in the Traveler threatens the freedom of every general newspaper in America, all ot which depend on the integrity of the First Amendment. is: Th« garage is where the smoke-house ought to be, Bowie Knife Star VOL. 76—No. 21 —12 Mm.ucr iif the Associated Press Newspaper 'Enterprise Ass'n.

Nashville Nevada County results LITTLE ROCK (AP) :; '^ p vid Hampton Pryor was elected governor Tuesday and prom ised to do whatever he could to continue the progress made under the Dale Bumpers administration. Pryor, who lost his bid for the U.S. Senate in 1972, indicated that he was not surprised by his victory margin over Republican Ken Coon of Conway. "Anything over 60 per cent is more than we expected," Pryor said. He easily defeated Ken Coon, 39,- of Conway, the Republican Nominee, and the write-in candidacy of Joseph H. Weston, 63, of Cave City, the controversial newspaper editor. Joe Purcell, 51, of Benton, who lost a race for gubernatorial nominal ion in his last race, also revived hi* political fortunes with a vic'ory in the race for lieutenant governor. He overwhelmed Leona Troxell, 61 of Rosebud, the Republican who was state Employment Security Division administrator under the late Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller. With votes counted in 2,166 of the state's 2,745 precincts, the unofficial tally was 257,677 for Pryor, 128,003 for Coon, and 36 for Weston. Purcell had 252,382 votes to 68,752 for Mrs. Troxell in the unofficial results Coon conceded defeat at 10:45 p.m. more than two hours after The Associated Press had de- clared Pryor the victor in the race. v The loss, Coon said, resulted from Arkansas being a one-pui'- ty, that is a Democratic party, state, and from "things that have been happening in Washington." He urged his supporters not to lose heart. "What you've done is not a loss because when you do what your heart knows is right you've always won," Coon said. Coon, former executive director of the state GOP, would not rule out the possibility of running again for political office. He failed in 1972 as the GOP nominee for lieutenant governor.
