Potatoes Sexy! It's Possible Under New Policy WASHINGTON (AP) Americans can get their names taken off commercial mailing lists that offer everything from' pornography lo potatoes simply by telling their postmasters they find the products lop sexy. "If somebody says he finds an advertisement for potatoes erot- Ically arousing or sexually pro- vocative', we're not going lo challenge his motives one Post Office Depart- ment official said Thursday. T.The basis for the policy Is a 1967 upheld by the Supreme designed to lake innocent families off the mailing lists of pornography pushers. However, the Post Office legal department has contended the Supreme Court ruling does not broaden the antipandering law, despite some speculation Chief Justice Warren' E. Burger's opinion could be interpreted to mean the law'covers all unsoli- cited mail advertising.. Post Office does not plan lo challenge any postal pa.lron's definition of "er- otically arousing or sexually sources in the de- partment say. In upholding the law, Burger wrote for the court that each person has the constitutional "lo be let alone." Constitutionality of the law was challenged by a group of "mailers who claimed it violated rights of free speech and freedom of the press. Under the law, a poslm aster who redeves a form complain- ing that advertising Is offensive to a recipient must instruct the mailer (p lake the recipient off his mailing list. .If the-mailer does not comply within .10 days, the U.S. attorney can ask for a federal court in- junction, making the mailer li- able lo contempt of court if he refuses. was held Thurs- day night at the University of .Tennessee football stadium, and. a university official estimated that lieard the President and tbe evangelist speak. The President, appearing on a college campus for the first time in almost a year, was in- terrupted during his brief speech by a-small band of heck-- lers chanting "peace now" and "one, two, three, four, we don't waini Nixon's war." The crowd booed the demonstrators. Police arrested nine persons on charges of disturbing a pub- lic worship, a misdemeanor. Nixon said he and Ihe stu- dents both want the same thing "I can tell you my life is dedi- cated to the cause that I know you are dedicated to, all of' the chief executive de- clared. "I want this nation to be at peace, and we shall be. "A great majority cf Ameri- young people, as I do, do approve of dissent but they say they want the-right lo be heard, and when they speak lliey want the right to be lieard, and when they' speak they think other peo- ple should be silent so thM Ihey cap be heard." The President continued: "It is a generation that is not the lost generation, as sonv> Ameri- cans think. It isn't Ins beat gen- eration. It isn't the heat-up rjen- eralion. It can be and will be- come Ihe great young genera- tion." Nixon conceded America isn't .everything he would like it to be. Young people, he said arc concerned about sucn things as air and water pollution, poor housing, inferior education and alienation between the races. "I know there are things about America that are ho snid. "But I also know this: that this is a country where a young person knows that there is a peaceful way ho csn change what he doesn't like 'about America and that is why it is a great country."

An Outside Look At Census Count SAN ANTONIO WV Life as a census taker is not without its lighter moments. Take, for instance, the census form query on flush toilets. Mrs. Aileen O'Callaghan, census manager here, recalled this incident: "There was'one man who said he had a flush toilet. And then in the margin he wrote, 'It's an outhouse and rain barrel, and that's my business.'" Mrs. O'Callaghan, who released prelimin- ary figure Thursday showjng Sail Antonio's population is now compared with in 1960, also'recalled this anecdote. A man sent in a form saying he had a second house on his lot with five occupants. "We thought this was fine until we got the ages. .The oldest was 7. So we thought this was a little we found that it was a ctog house." There were five dogs, she said, and the oldest was 7. i "Those things happen in all censuses, of course, and I'm glad people did have a sense of she said.
