Tomi., feb. 3. — Memphis juke llox faliK salrl uood- hye today to recordings ol "Dirty Ditties." Police Commissioner Joe Boyle yesterday seized some 400 juke box records of "Operation Blues" and a number of other selections and after a private audition in his office had the discs smashed to bits as "too suggestive and vulgar" lor Memphis listeners. Boyle also took n crack at some radio programs aired over national hookups. "We may be powerless lo stop fonie of the indecent and vulgar radio programs that are coming In over the. air." he said, "but we intend to see that, (he music played on public nickelodeons is decent." He did not cite specific radio programs. The commi.-.sionrr ihtrnrd behind closed doors for two hours yesterday lo a number of juke box records that had been denounced as uidecent. Then he had the di.=cj chopped up and ordered his officers to In- sped every tavern In Ihr city and confiscate all records on (lie blacklist. Boyle cited "Operation Blues" as one of the more offensive recordings and named >wo"ot)ic;rs with suggestive, obscene titles and lyrics. The commissioner did not cite any authority for his action, but a city ordinance makes it illegal to circulate "any book, writing, print, picture, newspaper, pamphlet, or other work of obscene nature." Boyle instructed seven amusement companies, to discontinue pJacii-- the records on nickelodeons and or- I derecl record shops to take the.n oft the shelves. One Juke box operator, Clarence; A.
