14 · Northwest Arkansas TIMES, W«d., Feb. 21, 1973 PAVITTBVILLC, ARKANSAS Supreme Court May Present New Obscenity Guidelines By VERNON A. GUIDRY Jr. i WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court this term could give government officials new guidelines on curbing pornographic books and movies. Revaluation has decreased steadily since the court first grappled directly with the Issue in 1957. Cases now pending before the court present a chance to review what determines obscenity and what should be done about it in 1973. The cases also present Presl- dent Nixon's four court appointees the first chance to make their impact felt on the ; pornography question. · If the court continues author: Ity to ban traffic In pornogra- · phy among willing adults, a key question remaining is whether the community stand · ards to apply in determining ; obscenity will be local or na 1 tlonal. ; Critics of the local approach ; have predicted it would reduce publishers and film distributors " to editing for the nation's most ; easily offended communities. ' Local officials are hoping the court will strengthen their ham in suppressing obscenity by al lowing communities to set their own pace for sexual candor. The Justice Department sharing the hope for toughe rules, this month launched a nationwide campaign agains what it sees as a new wave o dirty movies that once were thi -nrovince of stag parties. :- EXPLICIT FILMS . The department is aiming a slickly produced, explicit film showing at commercial movi houses where in times pas they had been taboo. If the high court alters th ·' trend toward less regulatio " when it speaks on the pendin leases, a 1971 decision in a cas . called United States v. Reidi · will have pointed the way. · · In the years after 1957, whe , the court first found obsQcnit · beyond the protection of the Is . Amendment, a three-point tes ·' determined just what was pb · scene. ; The material, taken as · whole, must appeal to th ; prurient interest, said tl »court. It must affront commi '. nity standards on sexual can 1 dor, and finally, the materi ; must he "utterly without r ; deeming social -value." ': Ten years after the first dec ; sion, a short, unsigned opinio entitled Redrup v. New Yor seemed to undo, or at least ca doubt, on what went before, The opinion reversed a co ".viction for sale of allegedly o · scene publications. Members ; the court, it read, were of d · ferent minds on what co 1 stituted obscenity. · The trend twoard a mo " lenient test seemed to be su ported in 1969 when the ecu voided the conviction of a Geo measure ' "borders on man for possessing por- graphic films in his home. Then came the 1971 Reldel ecision. Writing for the major- Justice Byron R. White re- firmed the vitality of the iginal three-point test and the urt's findings in its first deci- on. The Rcidel decision a(- rmed a conviction for sending iscene material through the ails--to a willing adult. Peace Declaration Sought By Rocky ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Gov. Nelson A.
