f 1 M Morale Problem in FBI Is 'Overblown' WASHINGTON (Utt) - Reports of morale problems in the FBt have been "overblown and overstated," Acting Director William D. Ruckelshaus said Sunday. Ruckelshaus, in an interview with UPI, disputed Clarence M Kelley, the Kansas City, Mo., police chief who is expected to WATER WEIGHT PROBLEM?

We recommend it. osco be confirmed by the Senate next month as the permanent FBI director. Kelley told the Senate Judiel ary Committee last week he believed the FBI was suffering from lack of leadership and that agents were "feeling that confidence in them has been hurt" by the Watergate scan dal. Ruckelshaus, however, said reports that morale in the FBI had hit a low ebb were not correct. "Actually, they've never been without leadership since Mr. («J. Edgar) Hoover died and the organization is so organized that I don't think they have suffered particularly without a permanent head," Ruckelshaus said. "I think the situation has To SAVINGS AND LOAN ASSOCIATION MAIN AND CHERRY STREETS GALESBURG, ILLINOIS been overblown and overstated." Ruckelshaus moved to the FBt from his job as head of tihe Environmental. Protection Agency April 30 when L. Patrick Gray resigned as acting director. Gray, a former naval officer, failed to gain Senate approval as permanent director after he disclosed that ho willingly gave FBI Watergate files to John W. Dean III, the White House counsel. Ruckelshaus was reluctant to criticize Gray. He noted that Gray had liberalized the FBI by hiring women, visiting regional offices and changing many long-standing policies. The acting director endorsed a proposal to have a special congressional committee oversee FBI operations and limit the director's term to between seven and 10 years. "I think Congress is somewhat baffled by the FBI," Ruckelshaus said. "They are uneasy about its operations, which shouldn't be a great mystery. I think an oversight committee is a good idea." Ruckelshaus is weighing an offer from the White House to stay with the administration in an undisclosed capacity once he leaves the FBI. He said he would make up his mind within the next 10 days or two weeks "on what I'll do."

TM'-F Galesburg Register-Mail, Galesburg, III. Monday; June 23,, 1973 5 Some Porno Palace s Begin Shut-Down United Press International Several porta palaces around the nation have ataeasdy closed down in response to the Supreme Court ruling on obscenity. But authorities differ on what effect the decision will have and some think the flow of pornography will remain unchanged for now. At least four theaters which show x-rated. (films shut down in Detroit and two porno hook- stores closed their doors in Milwaukee. A county attorney in Dcs Moines, Iowa predicted every blue store in the city would go out of. business as a result of the court's decision, which gives every city and state the freedom to determine its own definition of obscenity on the basis of community standards. The closings, however, might be only temporary. Most adult bookstores end movie houses are staying open pending darificaition from local govern ments on the ruling. It may take months for officials across the country to study the court's new guidelines and decide how they apply to their particular areas. One (thing is certain—the standards from coast to coast will be as different as the weather. WhM might be hard core filth to the small towns could be acceptable literature to sophisticated urban areas; what is banned in Boston might fee sold in San Francisco. The distinctions have been warmly welcomed by some prosecutors. Arnold W. Proskin, district attorney in Albany, N.Y, poinds out that many convicted pornographers have argued on appeal that their material was found not to be obscene in some other locale. "t*he moral standards in Albany are much different than l/hoy are in Now York City," he: said. "We should now be able to lake more ifirm steps toward the prosecution of obscenity cases." Others criticize the overtones of discrimination in the ruling. "It just seems to me an incorrect interpretation of. the First Amiendmenit to say that it means one thing in one place and another somewhere else," said Fred Okrand, counsel to the American Civil Liberties Union in Southern California. "It could mean that the right of counsel (to a defendant) differs from one part of the country to another." Many prosecutors are skeptical that the riding will have any immediate effect on the flow of pornography, Los Angeles authorities say it will not bring any massive increase in prosecutions but existing cases would probably be prosecuted more easily. Prosecuting attorneys in Utah also think the only benefit of the ruling will be to simplify! prosecution. The law still remains nebulous, they Bay, and the only difference now is that prosecutors will not have to bring in 'am expert witness to state that the material is without redeeming social value. Others, however, hailed the ruling for its symbolic value alone. Louisiana Lt. Gov. James FitaffiiOfris said it was "A great victory for all decent people," and thie Archbishop of Newark, N.J. said the court had restored the government's responsibility to promote moral good.
