WASHINGTON (AP) - The supreme court Monday ruled that juries do not have unlimited authority to decide what is obscene in their communities.
An unanimous court determined that the film “Carnal Knowledge” is not obscene and overturned the conviction of a Georgia theater operator who showed it.
In a related 5-4 decision, the court ruled in a California case that a brochure advertising “The Illustrated Presidential Report on the Commission on Obscenity and Pornography” was hard-core material which can be banned under a federal mail law.
Justice Rehnquist, who wrote the court’s opinions in both cases, said guidelines delivered in five landmark cases a year ago were not meant to give juries absolute freedom to ban movies and other materials as obscene.
He recalled that the court last year “made it plain that... ‘no one will be subject to prosecution for the sale or exposure of obscene materials unless these materials depict or describe patently offensive hard-core sexual conduct.”
The court viewed “Carnal Knowledge”, a film which gained wide critical acclaim, and concluded that it did not “depict sexual conduct in a patently offensive way,” Rehnquist said.
“While the subject matter of the picture is, in a broader sense, sex. and there are scenes in which sexual conduct including ’ultimate sexual acts’ is to be understood to be taking place, the camera does not focus on the bodies of the actors at such times,” he continued.
In the 1973 cases, the court rejected the application of a national standard defining punishable obscenity and said instead

WASHINGTON (AP) -From the standpoint of severity, 1974 is shaping up as possibly the worst tornado year in American history.
U. S. government weathermen blame the numerous twisters on especially capri cions antics of one of the two high-altitude “jet streams” that help control America’s weather.
In response to queries from Hie Associated Press, the forecasters said:
There have been 371 deaths and possibly 5.000 injuries so far this year from 658 twisters that have struck in all hut 14 states, causing losses in property, crops and animals unofficially estimated at el<»se to $500 million The death toll so far is the worst since the 450
recorded for the same span in 1953
Numerically alone, the 1974
total of tornadoes could exceed last year’s new record of 1,109 - a total that led the U. S. National Weather Service to call 1973 “The Year of the Tornado ” The only hope that the numerical record won t bo exceeded lies in the fact that the peak months for tornadoes — April, May and June — have essentially passed.
B u t meteorologist Allen Pearson, director of the Weather Service’s National Severe Storms Forecast Center at Kansas City, says that even if the numerical record of last year is not exceeded, many of the tornadoes that have struck America this year have been “a lot more
severe” than those of last year. Pearson said they may be the worst of all years past, although comparisons with prior years are not yet complete.
“l^ast year there were not as many high-intensity, longlived tornadoes as we’ve had this year,” Pearson said
“For example, (Mi April 3 this year — the worst single tornado day so far this century, with 93 storms reported — tornadoes cut pathways totaling 2.000 miles long in 14 states.
“That compares — on just a single day. remember — with a pathway of 5.300 miles last year for 1,109 tornadoes in all but four states for the entire year.” For all of 1972. Pearson said. the tornado pathway
from 740 tornadoes was 2.400 miles.
“To put it another way, the average tornado in 1974 has been running for ten miles on the ground — compared with about five miles last year And the worst tornado from that standpoint so far this year — the one that struck Guin, Ala., on April 3 — ran for about 150 miles on the ground,” Pearson said.
Pearson gave these other figures:
The death toll is 371 this year, compared with 65 for the same period in 1973, which had a total death toll of 87
So far in 1974, the only states that have not had tornadoes are: Alaska, Utah,
