Charleston Gazette (Newspaper) - October 10, 1970, Charleston, West Virginia Saturday. Oct. 10.1370 the Charleston Gazelle Nicholas a look at Ginzburg the Washington Post new York the elevators in the old office building on 40th Street Stop running at the 26th floor so that people who want to visit the condemned Man must get off and climb an Orange painted circular staircase to reach Ralph Ginzburg. Here in his High room the 40-year-old Magazine publisher works and Waits to see if his lawyers will save him from serving a three year fed Cral jail sentence for what the courts have held to be a Crim pornographic edition of his famous and Long kaput Eros. I his offices have the look of a place that somebody once started to make attractive and then gave up on. There Are Nice pieces of furniture but they re Dusty and pushed in Corners. Interrupted beginnings the effect a achieved like Ginzburg s career. A Man who s started three successful magazines a Man who might be considered a Martyr for a free press he should be better known More controversial he should have left a stronger print. His Early career took him through several newspaper jobs and writing for Maga Zines like Reader s digest. In mid sos while working for Esquire he independently published a Book he d written called an unhurried View of it sold hard Back copies and allows him to say i netted More Money personally than Esquire mag Azine made in profits that Ginzburg betrays no bitterness about what s happened to him. Even the report of the presidential pornography com Mission elicits More of a shrug than a cry of vindication from him. I m delighted to see a greater amount of Freedom for sexual express he says of the report and the change of standards since his conviction but i m appalled at the Quality of the material. By proscribing sex the Law and the courts have Given it the allure of forbidden fruit and discouraged people from doing Beautiful he can say that for he s one dirty Magazine Man who s not embarrassed to have his children see his work. They re on the bookshelf in the living room where his son and his two daughters can read them but if he s not ashamed of Eros he s never wanted to revive it or continue in the sex Field. A lot of people who make dirty movies or print smutty magazines appear to concen trate on this Market because the buying Public will accept a technically Lousy product. Their desire for sexual mate rial is so great they la forget the bad photography the Blotchy makeup the inane text supplied by film makers and publishers who re incapable of manufacturing anything better. That was t the Case with Ginzburg who s an unusually competent professional. He did t put out a sex Magazine because that s All he could do but because he wanted to put out an extraordinarily Fine one which he did when that was Over instead of persisting and reopening under another name As a lot of these Guys do he began putting out an other publication which was also destroyed by the Law courts but in a different Way. This one was called fact. It was a political publication whose circulation ran up to before it ran an article in 1864 claiming that shrinks thought that Barry Goldwater was psychologically unfit to be president. For this Ginzburg got hit with a libel suit which Cost him in judgments and lawyer s fees when the jury found against him and for the senator. This Ginsburg has t gotten Over if the press cannot question in a forthright Way the sanity of a presidential candidate what can it say of one of the great plays of our time could be made of the transcript of that trial but i lost. Go figure that go figure that every allegation was documented chapter and verse. It was an outrage but then i m accustomed to out Man says he saw Adkins put lighted cigarette in car the expel hence got him to thinking that there was Money As Well As love in sex. His idea was to take the big new publishing hits of that period american heritage and Combine them into a subdued deluxe sex Magazine. Within a year Eros a hard Back quarterly had subscribers each paying today Back issues arc reported to go for apiece. Through its first three issues Eros escaped notice of the but the fourth and last Issue contained a handsome photographic essay of a Black and a White woman Mak ing love. The pictures were in color so that the contrasting tints of the skin made the lines of the lovers bodies even More pleasing to look at. The tone of the pictures is Cool very much that of Sculp Ture and about As erotic As a Rodin. If it s hot stuff you re looking for you la find better in any a rated but that s now and this was 1962. A handling inc. Employee told a Kanawha intermediate court jury Friday that he saw a West Side Man set fire to his own car during the school bus Drivers strike last november. Julius Hatcher of St. Albans said he saw Earl w. Adkins 40, of Wyoming Street Light a cigarette outside his car on Lee Street lean Back into the car with the cigarette and withdraw without it. Adkins then closed the car got into another car which was driven away Hatcher said. A few seconds after the Sec Ond car departed he told the jury a muffled explosion was heard and the car burst into flames. Hatcher was the first witness the innocence of Adkins. De to testify in the arson trial of Adkins which got under Way Friday. Adkins was a school bus Driver at the time of the fire and he had parked his car out Side the school bus lot beside the Tod Al inn on Lee Street across from the handling inc. Garage Adkins said. In opening statements the state contended that Adkins had set the fire to collect insurance on the car from Dairyland insurance co. Asst. Prosecutor Spencer Simpson indicated the state would produce a number of witnesses to substantiate the charge. The defense however count ered with the Promise to prove sense counsel Robert g. Perry said he also would produce a number of witnesses to disprove the charge against Adkins. During direct testimony Hatcher told of what he said he saw the Day of the fire. On Cross examination he Corv ceded that undoubtedly there a considerable both vehicular and when pressed on the subject Hatcher said he was against the bus Drivers strike but insisted that he had nothing against Adkins personally and his feelings about strikes had nothing to do with what he saw that Day.

My Legal fees alone have exceeded he says and it must be True for he s gone All the Way to the supreme court once where he lost and May have to go again. After inspecting the Maga Zine it s difficult not to be Lieve that Ginzburg was sentenced to the Penitentiary not for being dirty but for depict ing interracial sex. Such is the problem of attempting to de Fine what s called hard Core pornography and separate it out from Art and social com ment. However defined it z seems monstrous that Ginz Burg should have to go to jail for his sedate and Well done publication when other men go free to sell the Slop Piest clinical Amateur stuff that looks like it was done in a hotel with a Polaroid and some people picked up off the Street for an hour.
