Ltd. may legally contest- the Commonwealth Government's ban on D. H. Lawrence's novel, Lady Chatterley's Lover. - The director of the Australian branch of the company (Mr. Richard Lane) said this yesterday. The decision to contest the ban would depend on the outcome of the proposed conference between the Minister for Customs (Senator Kenty) and State Chief Secretaries on- rationalising Australia's censorship procedures. "If it were agreed that States would abide by Commonwealth censorship decisions. It would be very tempting to contest the Reserve Loss "Not Wage Case Issue" The Arbitration Commission should not allow itself to be influenced by the decline in the nation's international reserves when passing judgment on the unions' claim for increases in the basic wage, A.C.T.U. advocate Mr. R. J. Hawke said yesterday. Mr. Hawke, concluding the case for the unions, said that if Import restrictions Olivetti SALES REPRESENTATIVES OLIVETTI offer young men excellent opportunities to advance, quickly In a rapidly expanding branch of a world-wide organisation.

"This commission should not be used as a remedy for the miscalculations of other authorities," he added. Mr. Hawke criticised manufacturers for regarding wages as a cost of production which should be kept under control. This view had been reinforced by recent Judgments of the commission. Instead, he said, the commission should do Its best to restore to the worker the ability to take a genuine share in the country's productivity by Increasing wages In real terms. "How can you expect workers to respond to exhortations to Increase productivity when the commission steadfastly refuses to allow them to share In this productivity ?" Mr. Hawke asked. . "The workers' share In productivity can be Increased either by a reduction in prices or an Increase In wages. Employers ensure that the first does not occur and endeavor to prevent the second by opposing all wage claims." - ban on "Lady I Lover," Mr. Lai Chatterley's ne said. "I'm not savins: we would. but we might.'' Mr. Lane said that while there were Commonwealth-State differences over censorship Penguin would not consider It worthwhile to oontest the ban. He was corresponding with Senator Henty about the importation of the Penguin book on the recent court case which resulted In the lifting of the ban on the publication of "Lady Chatterley's Lover" In England. Tms book is mainly a transcript of the proceedings in the Old Bailey. "We have received legal advice that, as the book Is a record of a public prosecution. It can be published here," Mr. Lane said. "But I have told Senator Henty that we will not import it without his permission." He added that If Senator Henty agreed to the book's admission, he would send copies of It to the Premier (Mr. Bolte) and the Chief Commissioner of Police (Mr. Porter) with a note asking: "Are you going to take any action?" Disagreement It Is understood the Prime Minister (Mr. Men-si es) and Senator Henty disagreed with a recommendation of the Commonwealth Censorship Board when it decided this week to continue the ban on "Lady Chatterley's Lover." The president of the Booksellers' Association (Mr. F. W. Cheshire) said yesterday : "Personally, I support their action. I hope I never have to sell the book." His association had not discussed the ban. he said. and he did not think it wouia. Ten Protest Australian writers yesterday sent this telegram to Senator Henty: "We writers strongly protest at your and the Prime Minister's arbitrary action In banning "Lady Chatterley's Lover", on the grounds that the Literary Censorship Board of distinguished citizens that you have set up should in no circumstances be overruled, and on the grounds that this novel is a classic of world literature, fit to be read by the people of Britain and so adjudged by a British jury recently In an exhaustive court ease." The telegram was signed by Jean Campbell, Nettie Palmer, Laurence Collinson, Leonard Mann, Chris Wal lace -Crabbe, Bill Wannan, Myra Morris, John Hether-lngton, Gordon Adler and Stephen Murray-Smith. Essential The Associate Professor of English at the University of Melbourne (Professor Keith Macartney) said: "I don't think this book would destroy the moral structure of the Australian way of life." "Lady Chatterley's Lover" was essential reading for people who wished, to understand the work and philosophy of Lawrence, a serious writer of books of literary merit, he continued. It was wrong that It should be banned, especially when cheap books that might have a harmful effect on young people were on sale. . "I bought my copy of "Lady Chatterley's Lover' In Iceland, vears ago. when It was banned In England," saia rroiessor macartney. "But somebody's pinched is. .
