4 The Arizona Republic CITY K h F U H |_ i Q MAIL Phoenix, Sat., April 5, 1969 Republic Photo by Paul Brown Life gets the boot by Gary Watson, assistant manager at A. J. Bayless Market, Seventh Street and McDowell More about Bayless stores ban issue of magazine Continued from Page 1 Bayless company, Rubens said the ban by the store chain would have little or no effect on Life's circulation or future editorial content. Ninety per cent of the circulation is subscription, he noted. "We are not on an antismut campaign," said Hagel, "but we feel this kind of thing is objectionable to our customers." According to Hagel, Bayless' 50 markets and three drug stores serve 400,000 customers a week around the state. There are 29 stores in the Valley. The next issue of Life will be sold at all stores if the content is fit for family consumption, said Hagel. Customer complaints also drove recent issues of True and Cosmopolitan magazines off the Bayless racks, according to Hagel. Center of one flurry of complaints, Hagel said, was a photograph from a .motion picture scene showing football star-turned actor James Brown "making physical love to Raquel Welch." True was banned, he said, because "we felt some pictures showed men and women doing things that weren't appropriate . . . they were vulgar, immoral pictures." He said the issue of Cosmopolitan taken from the shelves depicted a nude woman reflected in a mirror. However, Hagel said he could not remember which magazine carried the James Brown-Raquel Welch photograph. Praising the Bayless action, Mayor Graham said, "If peo-' pie continue to accept this kind of picturing of the anatomy of people, it's going to become an accepted community standard." The American Civil Liberties Union probably will not get involved in the Bayless action against Life, said Ted More about Vandals mar King service Continued from Page 1 cross of flowers on the gravestone inscribed: "Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty I'm free at last." At Nashville, about 300 demonstrators marched onto the grounds of the Tennessee State Prison where James Earl Ray is serving a 99-year prison sentence for King's murder. They sang "We Shall Overcome," and said they wanted to remind Ray "of what he did." The marchers did not get close to Ray's cell. And, in Selma, Ala., the scene of a bloody 1965 civil rights clash, about 750 persons, most of them Negro teen-agers, marched under a blazing sun, chanting a new call: "Soul power! Soul power! Uhm ah!" On the evening before the anniversary, a cabinet-level emissary was sent by President Nixon to meet with Mrs. King. Robert H. Finch, secretary of health, education and welfare, called on Mrs. King at her home in Atlanta for 45 minutes, and brought a personal letter from the President. Finch voiced "the President's sincerest expressions of condolences to Mrs. King and her family" and talked with Mrs. King about plans for a King Memorial Park in Atlanta and proposals to set up privately-sponsored institutions to promote her husband's advocacy of nonviolence. In Washington, one of the places where rioting broke out a year ago in a convulsive reaction to King's death, there were several memorial services in the predominantly Negro capital. Rain., guardsmen cool f ired-up Chicago slums United Press International CHICAGO — Drenching rains and the presence of National Guard troops ready for any new outburst of rioting cooled Chicago's strife-torn ghettos yesterday. City, state and military officials reported peace had replaced the violence and vandalism that left at least 72 persons injured, 267 arrested and widespread property damage on the west, northwest and south sides. National Guardsmen stood by in armories with tear gas throwers loaded and ready for action, and Gov. Richard B. Ogilvie said they would remain on duty in the city at least through today. Mayor Richard J. Daley said that, pending further reassessments of the racial^ situation, the city planned to permit a "peace march" down State Street to be held as scheduled today. Maxwell Primack, Chicago Peace Council cochairman who had predicted 10,000 antiwar demonstrators would participate, said, his group planned to go ahead with the march. 'Steady showers ke*pt many people off the streets. Police Supt. James B. Conlisk Jr., noting the gloomy Good Friday weather, exclaimed: "I think today is a beautiful day in Chicago." Daley, Ogilvie, Conlisk and Brig. Gen. Richard Dunn, commander of more than 7,000 Illinois National Guardsmen called up during Thursday's disorders, told a news conference "things are very quiet all over the city." Daley said a 7 p.m. curfew for persons under 21 and restrictions on the sale of firearms, ammunition and gasoline in portable containers would remain in effect. Police shifts remained on a 12-hour basis and, despite the rain, police patrols in troubled areas were running 20 per cent above normal strength. A ban on liquor sales kept taverns and liquor stores closed in affected neighborhoods. Ogilvie estimated that it was costing $50,000 a day to maintain the National Guard show of strength in the city. Police press killer hunt DETROIT (AP) - The search for the slayer of a white patrolman last Saturday night "is progressing rapidly," said the detective heading the effort, but he added no arrests are imminent. "If we say it is close to a solution, it might lead people to think an arrest is imminent, which it is not," said Detective Inspector Delore Richard, commander of the police homicide bureau. Richard was asked to comment on a statement made over police radio by Commissioner Johannes Spreen that investigators may be "nearing a solution" to the slaying. Spreen declined to amplify on his statement. The presidents of four bar associations, meanwhile, said controversial decisions by Recorder's Court Judge George W. Crockett after the slaying are "entitled to be respected." TEEN QUEEN ARRESTED TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - The 1968 "Miss Florida Teen-ag- er," 16-year-old Rebekah Hall of Tampa, was one of nine persons arrested yesterday on possession of marijuana charges. Doomsday postponed Continued from Page 1 hearing that still demand to know the exact time and place." The doomsday predictors disagree even among themselves about when the cataclysm will hit, or precisely what will happen when it does. There are two alternate scenarios. In one, circulated, by the majority of the self-appointed oracles and astrologers, a cataclysmic earthquake will simply tumble everything west of the San Andreas fault into the Pacific, The other scenario calls for the state to be split in two — something San Franciscans have hoped for a long time, anyway — creating a giant island that would include Los Angeles, San Diego and Baja California. Actually, Caltech scientists acknowledge that they may be as responsible for the earthquake scare as any of the most unscientific seers and promoters who have tried to exploit the subject with records, posters and bumper stickers, Mote, executive director of the Arizona Civil Liberties Union, an affiliate. He defended the right of Bayless to sell what it pleases, especially since the banned product can be purchased elsewhere. Earlier, the ACLU lambasted Mayor Graham and Gov. Williams for ugring sellers of magazines to withhold sale of an issue of Confidential which showed how to make LSD. lilllllillllllllllllllllllii 'El Dorado" i "Spanish Oak" » finish, protected surfaces resistant to { cigarette burns, stains and liquids. { Smooth drawer action with steel channel drawer guides.
