Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Wedneiday, October 20, 1971 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD f Judge orders magazines forfeited EDMONTON (CP) Judge S. V. Legg rejected three pub- lic opinion surveys conducted by the University of Alber- ta and ruled here that 2.B5C books and magazines seized Irom a local store are "hard- core poronography." Falls 19 floors to death NEW YORK (Reuter) A robber fell 19 floors to his death from an apartment in the luxu- rious St. Moritz Hotel after al- legedly taking from his victim whom he beat with a lead pipe, police said today. A toy pistol was still in the dead man's hand after he top- pled to the sidewalk. The victim, 72-year-old Mar- cus Cohen, was treated at hospi- tal where 30 stitches were taken in his head and face. Cohen, who lives in the hotel told police that the unidentified man followed him into the apartment after sticking the gun in his back. Neighbors heard screams and rang alarms to alert hotel secu- rity which frightened the rob- ber, police said. He tried to bal- ance on a window ledge to es- cape through a lower floor po- lice added. Later, a passerby found the money, mostly bills fas- tened with a rubber band, in the street gutter.

In a 28-page judgment, Judge Lcgg wrole that the paperback- ed bonks and the magazines "in this case are nothing more than hardcore poronography and far the Canadian commun- ity tolerance level." The publications, seized from the store on Aug. 14, 1970, were ordered forfeited under section 150 of the Criminal Code. Un- der this section, no one is pros- ecuted but the material in question is forfeited if the crown satisfies the court that the material is obscene. REJECTS EVIDENCE Judge Legg said he rejected the evidence given in May about three surveys conducted by Dirk Schaeffer and B. W. Thorngate, both assistant pro- fessors at the University of Al- berta. They both testified for the de- fence that the surveys showed Edmontonians are willing to al- low adults to obtain material with a sexual content regard- less of whether they judged the materiel to be obscene. The judge wrote that he was more impressed with the evi- dence of sociologist Earle Sni- der of the University of Alber- ta, a crown witness who criti- cized the surveys as useless be- cause of sampling errors. The surveys conducted by Professors Thorngate and Shaeffer started with 46 photo- graphs of men and women in various stages of undress and in a variety of interaction with their people. These photo- graphs were ranked in degrees of offensiveness by an introduc- tory psychology class. Twelve of the photos were then shown to 35 people, about half of them in a university ex- tension class. In the third survey, telephone calls were made to persons se- lected at random from the city directory. B-E charge dismissed by judge EDMONTON (CP) An Al- erta Supreme Court judge has smissed a charge of break- g, entering and theft against 25-year-old man because of be wording of the indictment.

Swami Vishnu Devananda, the psychedelic peace preacher, Is home. "The war fever is very high now between India and Paki- stan and I am going to try to dampen this the 43- year old master of yoga and self-styled peace leader says. "A war between Pakistan and Inuia, even a short one, would be a disaster in terms of human suffering. I don't care about politics. It's the people and the suffering they would have to endure that concerns me."
