Hamilton greeted the chairman of the Australian Wool Board (Sir William Gunn) with a kiss last night on his first appearance in Hamilton since wild demonstrations last year. POLICE TO DECIDE BE A UTY TREATMENT FOR RESERVE CHAMPION ON BOOK PROSECUTIONS First VICTORIA'S Acting Premier (Mr. Rylah) said last night it would be- up to- the police to decide whether any prosecutions should be launched in Victoria over the four banned books released by the Commonwealth. Lifting of the customs ban on the books- "Lolita," "Lady Chatterley's Lover," "Borstal Boy" and "Confessions of a Spent Youth" was announced on Monday by the Minister for Customs and Excise (Senator Anderson). . Mr. Rylah said yesterday it was likely to be weeks before the books became available for vice squad scrutiny. Under Victorian law police can seize books considered obscene. The Police Offences Act lays down penalties of up to 100 or up to two years' gaol for keeping, publishing, lending or selling obscene books. senator - uiueroun jco- terday sent a telegram to Mr. Rylah defending the Commonwealth's action on the four books. This was a reply to a protest telegram on Monday from Mr. Rylah, who said the Commonwealth had Jeopardised the planned talks on uniform censorship at the conference of State and Commonwealth Attorneys-General to be held in Melbourne tomorrow and Friday. Telegram In his telegram, Senator Anderson said: "I am unable to concede that my announced decisions need inhibit any discussions proposed for the conference of Attorneys-General. "Indeed, my public statement of the Commonwealth position in regard to uniformity might be of assistance." But Mr. Rylah said he could now see less likelihood of uniform book censorship being achieved in Australia. For two years Victoria had been trying to discuss censorship with the Commonwealth without success, he said. The Attorneys - General's conference agenda Includes A Vfntarian nrnnnsnl . for n State and - Commonwealth committee to advise all States and the Federal Government on literary censorship.

Mr. Rylah said .he had been nrepared to recommend to Cabinet amendments to the Police Offences Act to allow this. Publications approved by the committee could be exempted from prosecution under the act. First sales The unexpurgated version of "Lady Chatterley's Lover'' was sold in Melbourne yesterday. ' The copies were sold quickly yesterday morning. The book store said it had acquired them when they had been sent by mistake from London.

Sambell, Aus-. trallan manager of' William Helnemann Ltd., the Australian distributors of "Lady Chatterley's Lover," said last night he expected deliveries within the next month. Orders had already been lodged in London and sup- Elies left by ship for Austra-a last night. ' Many people also asked for "Lolita." There were few inquiries about the other two released books, "Borstal Boy" and "Confessions of a Spent Youth." A Student Action meeting at Melbourne University yesterday decided to seek legal advice on the possibility of forcing a court case 'Co test the State's obscenity law. It was suggested that' students should publicly sell James Baldwin's "Another Country," which is banned here, and deliberately provoke police action. . The meeting, packed by students, congratulated Senator Anderson and the Commonwealth Government for releasing the four books. The meeting "deplored the continuing hysterical narrowmindedness on this issue of Mr. Rylah." It supported the concept of a uniform, liberalised Australian censorship. The meeting was told 25 volunteers next week would begin a campaign against Mr. Rylah. The main speaker at yesterday's student meeting was Mr. Stephen Murray-Smith, a research fellow In education at Melbourne University and a member of the Freedom to Read Association's committee.

Sir William was men asking growers to support the Wool Board's promotion levy. Last night he asked a far more recentive audience to support the board's reserve price plan.

They also waved placards saying: "How ya gonna Keep us aown on me inriu if we don't get the reserve price pian t -ana, iou cuu get a plan with a Gunn." Opposition Graziers even had Dlacards for the deputy chairman of the .committee for the retention and improvement of the free wool market (Mr. G. G. Ashton), who was opposing Sir William. Two of tnese read "Asn-ton to Ashton, dust to dust, give us the wool plan, or we'll all go bust," and "The Committee for the Detention and Imprisonment of the Free Wool Market." Sir William said tne wel come was "certainly a little different" from tne one ne had received last time he was in Hamilton. Sir William added that the Australian Wool Board's plan was needed "to put steel into the backbone of the wool system." He said mat nuciuauons in the price of wool needed to be stabilised for the benefit of the whole wool Industry. . With tne improvement 01 man-made fibres, manufacturers were "no longer willing to gamble on the raw-wool market." Claims had been made that the Wool Board had not correctly interpreted the wants of the wool trade. Sir William said a Sydney manufacturer had told him Australia's progressive AUSTRALIA he hoped the reserve price plan would eventuate. He added that if the reserve price plan was passed at a referendum of wool growers later this year, a genuine attempt would be made to minimise fluctuations in wool prices. He said that this would not come at once, because mistakes would be made, but "that's human nature." Sir William also promised thac wool growers would be given a complete document outlining the plan two months before the referendum. He said It was unfortu nate but unavoidable that it could not be presented now, but the Federal Government was still making decisions on finance. Mr. Ashton. who was greeted with light applause, Teachers plan set reply The Education department is likely to receive identical hand written replies from most of the 2000 secondary teachers asked to explain their . absence from school during a stop-work meeting on July 2. A sugeested reply to the department's "please explain" was sent to schools yesterday by the Victorian Secondary Teachers' Association. The v.s.t.a. urged teachers to hand write the replv and keep a carbon copy for reference. The suggested reply reads: "Following years of abortive negotiations for reform of the Teachers' Tribunal, secondary teachers were appalled to learn that the tribunal had made an award which would clearly do considerable damage to secondary education. "A mass meeting of teachers throughout the State decided .that a more direct method was essential. and the V.S.T.A. called on all secondary teachers to stop work on the morning of tnaay, juiy z.' for small or large investors WM is what your money earns from the day you arrange an A.N.Z. interest bearing deposit.

Mr. Ashton told graziers that for the past 12 months a high-powered organisation had been promoting; the plan at their expense. . He said, "The board has tried to resist criticism on the plea that it had no information. "The board has gone out to sell this plan like a brand of cigarettes. "No attempt has been mada to put the other side of the question. The board has virtually brushed the risks aside." Mr. Ashton said that tha board had been less than frank over the wool trade reaction to the plan. He said that even a committee investigating the plan had said it was not advisable. "The meetings were held in protest against tha tribunal's constitution and, as a member of the service who is most concerned at the present situation, I decided to join thousands of my colleagues in this action." ' Sent in bulk It was learned yesterday that the department's "please explain' notices were sent to schools in bulk and distributed to teachers by head masters. The notices, said, in part: "This letter is addressed to you as an individual member of the teaching service and only an individual reply can be accepted.". They said also that head masters had reported the absentees to the department. BANK LIMITED lAJVt.1
