Sunshine Class in Victoria Observes 35th Anniversary B ^TuniteTPreSnn^ In spite of a Supreme Court ruling on obscenity, blue movies and dirty books are still thriving across the country. Some of the smaller towns have used the decision to attack down on the market, but a UPt weekend survey showed that hard core pornography is just about what it used to be. Yardstick Gone In New York, San Francisco, Boston and other large cities, porno palace strips look the same as they looked two weeks ago before the Supreme Court iflircw out the old yardstick that said to be obscene material must be "utterly without redeeming social value" and ruled that each city and state can set its own definition of obscenity according to "com munity standards."

The teacher and four 35- year members were also recognized. Toastmistress of the event was Janet Kistler; Grace Christenson gave the blessing About 62 were in attendance. Highlighting the event were several vocal numbers by Rev. and Mrs. Bassett with the accompaniment of Barbara Lane. Nina Ives reminded the class of past events, giving an ac count of bake sales, items purchased for the church, Easter breakfasts and the coming of electricity to the community. A short memorial service honored Eunice Butler, organizer of the class of 1938, Maude Read, Helen Bloomster, Del tine Soharf, Daisy Scharf and Cecil Cree. SeTaUrSions in neon Mghts San Francisco, mecca of a variety of titillations, is unchanged save for a proposed ordinance which would force the city's topless waitresses to put on tops and stipulate that entertainers cover at least their bottom half. In Boston, the city that once banned just about anything that was sexually graphic, the "combat zone" area is still bursting with porn peddlers. In some of the smaller cities, however, the picture is a bit cleaner. Confused about the effect the new ruling will have on their communities, some merchants are scurrying to pull off their shelves even the oldest and most respected sex maga zincs. Idaho, in response to the high court's ruling, passed an anti obscenity law which went into effect Sunday banning all "obviously obscene'' publications. Store owners in Boise immediately took all girlie magazines off their racks, including "Playboy." State Attorney General W. Anthony Park, innovator of the Haw, who said he likes to read the magazine "once in a while," said he was befuddled by the move. The shopkeepers, said Park, were being overcautious about the law until it was determined just which magazine was legal and which illegal. In Cleveland, the main bookseller removed Playboy's female version, "Playgirl," which includes a nude male centerfold, Irom the stands until he consults lawyers about the meaning of the new ruling. Most experts agree the ruling is vague enough so that long debate and controversy can bej expected in some areas. States like Texas and Colorado have laws on the books which correspond to the court's old "social value" ruling. No crackdowns can come until such laws are changed. In states which follow Idaho's lead and enact new laws and guidelines, much borderline material will probably have to be submitted to court tests before anyone really knows what is obscene in his community. Some communities, jumping at the opportunity afforded them by the ruling, have pushed through tough new ordinances. In North Little Rock, Ark., a new law prohibits the selling or giving away of "obscene, slanderous, scurrilous books or literature calculated to injure the morals of the inhabitants of the city." In Kansas City, Mo., a County Circuit Judge ordered bookstores to stop selling 127 different magazines and books and ordered all copies of thern^ which had been seized in police raids, destroyed. Police in Charlottesville, Va. raided two bookstores, seized three truckloads of publications and films and arrested four men. Brush Fire Raging In California High Timber Writer Nancy Mitford Dies LONDON (UPI) - Writer Nancy Mitford, who made "U and Non-U" a satirical guide to social status, died Saturday after a lengthy illness in Versailles, France, family sources said today. She was 68. Miss Mitford wrote several successful novels including "The Pursuit of Love," but it was a 1956 satirical article telling how a person's social class could be assessed by a "U and Non-U" code that brought her the most fame. Under the code, the status of an individual was classed on the basis of what word he or she used to describe certain 7.950 7.25 8.22 7.35 8.36 8.55 6.050 8.15 6.45 8.32 8.32 7.10 7.90 7.95 7.95 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 40 2 2 2 A 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 B C c c c 2 2 O c c c .30 .50 .50 .45 .25 .40 .30 .35 .35 .35 .35 .35 .25 .31 .31 .25 .30 .30 .35 .35 .35 .35 .30 .15 .15 .15 ** 1% .375 .20 .35 .35 .35 .35 .35 .15 .55 .55 .20 .30 .30 $10.00 $10.00 $10.00 $10.00 per week per week per week per week three or more 50c objects, such as "serviette" instead of "napkin." In addition to her novels, Miss Mitford wrote several books on the history of France where she lived in her later years. She was one of six daughters of the second Lord Redesdale. Her marriage to Peter Rodd was dissolved in 1958. The main exports of Venezuela include crude petroleum and refined products, iron ore, coffee, cocoa, canned fish, fruits, plantains, shrimp, sugar, diamonds, pipes and other steel products. PALM SPRINGS, Calif. (UPI) — The worst brush fire to hit California this year surged out of control up mountain slopes into high timber today, with firefighters scrambling after it in helicopters and roping themselves like | mountaineers to keep from falling over cliffs. A force of 1,200 men battled the fire, which has consumed more than 8,000 acres of brush and trees. The blaze, which began Saturday on the Morongo Indian Reservation, sent a spearhead of flame racing up the San Jacinto Mountains Sunday, eating through stands of pine trees 75 to 125 feet tall, the state Division of Forestry reported. Pushed by 25 mile-per-hour winds, the flames flared across 2,000 acres in one three hour period. "It's up to 6,000 or 6,500 feet (altitude) now," a spokesman lor the Division of Forestry, Carl Wolf, said. "We're issuing ropes to the men. There's sheer cliffs up there, with drops of 100 to 500 feet." To get the firefighters into the rugged area "we're using anything that can fly," said one spokesman. "We're mounting one of the biggest helicopter operations WHEN BUYING OR SELLING REAL ESTATE SEE we know of in this area," Wolf said. "The Army is doing a great job. They've got two 10-man helicopters here. With those and our 10 copters, we ferried 500 men into those mountains Sunday." The lower area of the fire was considered contained however, after burning Saturday to the fringes of the town of Snow Creek, where one home burned and 30 residents were evacuated.
