Lawrence General Hospital identified the donor as Barbara An artificial heart was im- planted in Karp's chest on April 4. The spokesman said he had no idea how long the operation would take. "I would guess several hours but this is only a guess. This is the first time we've had this kind of he said, Karp, who was able to drink water Sunday and was being fed intravenously, was listed in sat. isfactory condition before the operation. But a spokesman said earlier that the eight-ounce plastic heart was designed only to keep a patient alive until a human heart donor could be found. Mrs. Ewan was transferred to Houston at the request of one of her three daughters, Carol Burns of Lawrence, who accom- panied her mother to Houston. Mrs. Burns asked that her mother be transferred in re- sponse to Mrs. Karp's plea for a donor. A potential donor was en route to the hospital from Cleve- land, Tex., Friday night but died of a blood clot just a few blocks from the medical center. Complications prevented use of that heart, the spokesman said, The mechanical heart was im- planted in Karp's chest by Dr. Coolcy after he determined that a severely damaged heart chamber could not be repaired. Cooley said earlier he thought the artificial heart could func- tion well for a month, but hoped it would be needed no longer than a week or 10 days. Possession Of Obscene Films No Crime, High Court Rules Emile Havier Ravier Named President Of Eastalco Emile Ravier has been ap- pointed president of the Eastal- co Aluminum Company, accord- ing to a joint ;mnounccment by Michel M. C.islor.i, executive vice president of Pechincy En- terprises, Inc. and Yves II. Robert. prosidcnt of Howmet Corporation. Eastalco is the aluminum re- duction project being constnictctl WASHINGTON (AI1) The Supreme Court, in a major free speech ruling, held today that it cannot constitutionally be made a crime to possess obscene films or printed matter in the privacy of a man's home. "This right to receive infor. mation and ideas, regardless of their social worth, is funda. mentalto our free said Justice Thurgood Marshall in delivering the opinion. Marshall reiterated for the court its view that the govern- ment has a valid interest in dealing with the problem of ob- scenity. But, he said in announcing the decision from the bench; "The state has no business telling a man sitting alone in his own home what books lie may read or what films he may watch." The nil ing came on an appeal by an Atlanta man, Robert Eli Stanley, who was convicted in 1907 of having three "stag" films in his home and was sen- tenced to one year in prison. "Said Marshall of Stanley: "He is asserting the right to read or observe what he pleases the right to satisfy his intel- lectual and emotional needs in the privacy of his home. He is asserting the right to be free from state into the con- tents of his library." Stanley did not argue that the films were not obscene and the court assumed for purposes of its decision that they arc scene under tests previously laid out by the court. The decision clearly distin- guished between the Georgia law which punishes for mere possession of obscene material, and the more typical obscenity law which makes it a crime to traffic in obscene material. re Fire calls reported during the 48-hour period ending at 10 a.m. CITY GG3-44UO NONE.

BID FAHEWELL TO ENGLAND'S FINEST- Frederick County families and others in Mary- land said farewell this morning at ProspectShop- ping Center to 45 English boys who have been visiting as guests of the 4-H program from Cray Valley School for Boys in England. Their 17-day tour of the United States and Canada took them to New York, New Jersey, Pennsyl- vania, Maryland and Washington, D.C.

The boys had planned their own trip which took them to the states of New York, New Jersey, Penn- sylvania, Maryland, Massachu- setts and Washington, D.C. Eight masters were among their num- ber. Their next destination is Niagara Falls, then to Ontario, back to the U.S. and departure for London April 17. The boys were "trueambassa- dors for wearing neat, trim, conventional clothing no jeans, far-out shoes or long- hair. "We sought to avoid tens ion and one group leader said. The younger boys had more leeway, while the third and fourth year boys dressed in traditional school uniforms. "Everytime this school has traveled and it has been to Moscow, North Africa, Sicily and Iceland, "we have boon com- plimented on our Iv-linvfnr and said Martin Carr, organ and mastcr-in- chargc. It has been their in- tent, he .said, "to maintain this high standard in the United States and Canada." But this doesn't mean "mil- itary he added, "be- cause Uiis trip is intended as a holiday benefits" as well as personal pleasure. Each boy had prepared for the trip by compiling a project book.

The Coast Guard said 23 of the 51 members of crew of the freighter, the Union Faith, were unaccounted for. Twenty-five were taken to hos- pitals. The fire-swept ship sank about six hours after Uie colli- sion while being towed away for beaching. The oil barge btoke in two and the two fiercely burning sections floated downstream pursued by fire tugs. One sec- tion finally sank and the other ran aground. The barge, car- rying barrels of crude oil was being pushed by the tug Warren Doucet. The Coast Guard said all members of the tug's crew were accounted for. Firemen hosed down wharves and ships in the area to prevent the spread of the blaze.
