D-Fresno, who drew an agree ment from Young that the measure would remain unchanged in its tour through the legislature. However, Barnes later objected to the Zenovich-Young agree ment as "unethical" and the committee held onto both biUs until last week. When, both were killed. Dem ocrats on the committee voted as a bloc against the Barnes measure and Republicans failed to support Young's bill. The action appeared to effec lively kill any hopes for tougher anti-pornography legislation in the 1965 session. Young later in troduced a resolution calling for a two-y ear between-sessions study of the subject. But Barnes served formal notice last week that he would try to gain the 41 votes needed to bypass the committee and place his bill on the floor, setting up today's fight. Other legislature action: Smoking: Gov. Edmund G. Brown's $250,000 program to reduce cigarette smokmg in the state won approval from the Assembly Public Health Committee. The bill would permit the state to establish "withdrawal centers" for smokers who want to quit. But last week the Ways and Means Committee deleted the money from the administration's budget. Cancer: The Assembly Public Health Committee, after long and sometimes emotional pro tests, voted Monday night to extend the state's cancer quack control law. The bill now goes to Ways and Means. Minority: The Senate passed and sent to the Assembly a bill outlawing "quota" hiring of minority races, the bill by Sen. John Holmdahl, D-Oakland, forbids discrimmating in favor of minority persons in hiring. The vote was 25-1.

(NEA Radio-Telephoto) Presbyterians debafe on modernization COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI) — Delegates to the 177th General Assembly of the United Presbyterian Church in the U.S.A. were to debate today whether the church's credo should be modernized by adoption of a new statement of faitli, the first in nearly 300 years. The controversial question was expected to provide the cUmax to the nearly week-long conference of 835 commissioners, representing the 3.3 million members of the church. The only authoritative statement of faith for the denomination currently is the Westmm- ster Confession, adopted in the 17th century. The more liberal element in the church feels that restating the ancient affirmations in contemporary language is part of the evangelical task of the church in every generation. The main point of contention is a section dealing with the Bible. It affirms tlie Bible's unique authority without claiming "verbal inerrancy" for it, which fundamentalists consider indispensable. The new statement, drawn up over seven years by a committee, states that the "words of the Scriptures are the words of men, conditioned by the language, thought-forms and literary fashions of the places and times at which they were written . . ."

Redlands Daily Facts Tues., May 25, 1965 - 7 Congressman to try for new anti-Red mail law WASHINGTON (UPI) — A Nebraska congressman is planning to try again to write a law permitting the goverpment to restrict U.S. mail delivery of foreign Communist propaganda publications. The Supreme Court, in an 8-0 vote Monday, ruled unconstitutional Rep. Glenn Cunnmg- ham's original "Red mail" law. The justices held that the 1962 statute violated the First Amendment's guarantee of free speech. But, said Cunningham, a Republican, "while this legislation was on the books, it did its jobs. The flow of Communist propaganda was staunched. Now our mail will again be flooded. I, for one, do not propose to see our deficit-ridden postal system utilized for the subsidized carriage of Communist propaganda, and I feel certain that my colleagues in Congress, Democrats and Republicans ahke, do not propose to take it lying down either." As if in anticipation of Cun- nmgham's argument, Justice William J. Brennan Jr., in a separate but concurring opinion, said: "The argument that the statute is justified by the object of avoidmg the subsidization of propaganda of foreign governments . . . needs Uttle comment. If the government wishes to withdraw a subsidy or privilege, it must do so by means and on terms which do not endanger Fhst Amendment rights. That the governments which originate this propaganda themselves have no equivalent guarantees only highlights the cherished values of our constitutional framework; it can never justify emulating the practice of restrictive regimes in the name of expediency. Struck down by the high court was the requirement that Communist mail from foreign sources could not be delivered in this country unless the recipient specially requested the material from the Post Office Department, Under the law. it was up to the Customs Bureau to decide what was propaganda. "The addressee carries an af- fffmative obUgation which we do not think the government may impose on him," said Justice William O. Douglas, who spoke for the court. Justice Byron R. White did not participate in the case. Justices WilUam J. Brennan Jr., Arthur J. Goldberg and John M. Harlan concurred with Douglas in a separate opinion. mine what countries come within the specifications laid down in the law. Foreign mail determined to be Communist propaganda is not delivered, except to libraries and the like, unless the addressee signs a cai-d from the post office.

"Pubhc officials, Uke teachers who have no tenure, might thmk they would invite disaster if they read what the federal government says contains the seeds of treason," he said. At that point, the Post Office decided to forward all his mail school:without any signed cards.
