Israel was concerned both with tension on the Syrian fron- tier and the possibility of Arab fiiicrilla raids from Lebanon. Monday, Israel was having more troubles in the occupied West Bank where violence by hackers of the Palestine Libera- tion Organization spread to East Jerusalem. Arab students there stoned passing vehicles and po- lice.

WASHINGTON (AP) :upreinc court Monday set aside a lower-court ruling that Wis- consin's anti-obscenity law is unconstitulional and agreed to review another lower-court deci- sion against California's anti- obscenity law. By a 5 to 4 ruling, the su- Jrema court ordered lhc sev- enth U. S. circuit court of ap- jeals to reconsider its ruling against the Wisconsin law in the ight of recent obscenity rulings. The justices cited their own Jecision last year upholding a ederal obscenity law and a de- Ision of the Wisconsin supreme court upholding the Wisconsin law. Declared Invalid Justices Douglas, Brcnnan, Stewart and Marshall dissented, saying they believed the Wis- consin law should have been declared invalid. The Wisconsin case arose out of the conviction of Myron Amato, one of the operators of the J and M Book Store in Janesville, Wis., on charges of selling obscene magazines.
