Salvation Army sex book fight short of ammunition By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Staff Writer General William Booth's soldiers appear short of ammunition as they open a fresh front in the eternal conflict. The Sally Ann troops recently issued an assault on pornography in a national statement about dirty books and theatrical entertainment. But national Salvation Army information officer Brig. William Hosty of Toronto has hastened to admit the Army is of ammunition statistics for the fight. "In many ways, we are just at a point of Mr. Hosty said replying to written questions submitted by The Herald. "The Salvation Army frankly admits that it has not done as much in the area- under discussion as it might have done in the past. This statement is not only a public statement of concern but an encouragement to Salvationists generally to engage in a practical awareness of their Christian responsibility in this regard." Asked if The Army plans to contest specific films and publications it considers offensive in Canadian law courts, Mr. Hosty replied the Army is counting on an "accumulation of individual voices eventually having some effect on power structures in our society." "It is our understanding that present, obscenity legislation is not being enforced because there is little evidence of concern that is should be Mr. Hosty said. "Individuals who feel strongly about the dangers of the existing situation should therefore assume some responsibility in expressing their concern to the appropriate law enforcement agencies as well as to store managers, Mr. Hosty said. When several Lethbridge area clergymen recently voiced opposition to the screening of the Warner Brothers productions. The Exorcist. Paramount Theatre manager Bob Shackleford turned aside clergy requests for a discussion. "I haven't seen the print and I'm not prepared to discuss it until after I do." Mr. Shackleford said at the time. He went on to explain that motion pictures are usually distributed nationally through a handful of booking agents and sometimes are exhibited in package arrangements. Selective Because Majestic Theatres are the only cinema operators in Lethbridge, management does have a little more freedom to pick and choose. Mr. Shackleford said it worries Majestic Theatre management that crowds flock to see movies containing nudity and violence yet often ignore entertainment classified suitable for family viewing. "The Alberta censor board is the lawful body to decide what can be screened and what should be cut." Mr. Shackleford said. Nevertheless, according to the national statement, marching orders for Salvationists are a visit to local motion picture exhibitors. Magazine distribution is similar. One corner store operator told The Herald he doesn't like having to handle some of the books exhibited on his shelves. "I'm not a prude. I like looking at a nice body once in awhile. But I am concerned for the sake of children and young people. Yet if -you want a news stand in the store, what can you do? You have to take the books to stay in he said. Publishing and distribution is a complex business, confirmed Leonard Herring, manager of General News in Lethbridge. "As a wholesale dealer we have to pretty well handle everything publishers put out. And for a retailer to stay in business, he has to handle almost every publication. For everyone who complains, someone will come in and say they want the Mr. Herring said. Choice A normal establishment of retail accounts at General News involves acceptance of most publications, Mr. Herring said, adding the retailer can still have a degree of choice over what he sells. The Army has extensive files on alcohol related problems. Other than homes for unwed girls, The Army offers no supporting statistics or record regarding pornography and sexual problems. "The counselling load of Salvation Army officers would indicate a proliferation of problems associated with a misunderstanding of the proper place of sex in human Mr. Hosty said. "It is our opinion that pornography has had a subtle influence in leading to this Mr. Hosty added. For the good Salvationist, Scripture Press publications of Wheaton, 111., are a standard Sunday school text. This publisher, along with occasional sexual studies in a teen-age Bible course published by territorial youth department headquarters in Toronto, is the extent of sex education literature available local corps. Maj. Thelma Corney, Lethbridge Citadel commanding officer, said she feels parents should set up a home library of good books and through example and by directly sharing with their children, help stimulate young minds with quality reading. "Not many get excited about good things these Maj. Corney claimed. "Children get their excitement from Hollywood via television. If parents would share a variety of qual- ity books and be open to children's curiosity and ques- tions, there wouldn't be so many problems. If a youngster sees Mom and Dad reading a romance magazine, they are sooner or later going to pick it up and read it too." Mr. Hosty said soldiers and other Christians and concerned persons are being encouraged to communicate their individual concerns to merchants. Where sale of Turkey crackdown curbs public sex ANKARA (AP) Turkey's conservative justice minister, a former Moslem priest, is conducting a personal no-breasts- bared crackdown on public sex "to break the backs of those who lead youth to get drunk-on lust." Justice Minister Sevket Kazan has attacked books, news- papers, magazines and films. He set up a special government office to paint small black bands on bare breasts and bottoms in imported publications. Kazan has the blessing of his National Salvation party, junior partner in Premier Bulent Ecevit's coalition government. Last week he hauled into court the weekly, Yanki, because it illustrated a critical article about his efforts with a picture from a West German magazine. Kazan's censors had brushed black bands on the nude backsides of seven women, but he charged the magazine with printing pornography anyway. Gunaydin. a mass-circulation daily usually top-heavy with flesh, regularly gets in trouble with Kazan's prosecutors. Editor Necati Zincirkiran has asked that Kazan resign because "Turkey is not in the Middle Ages." f Kazan's prosecutors have overruled the seal of approval of Turkey's film censor board and banned three imported films this year. One. tame Italian epic called Duel on a Love Bed. was halted in the midst of an afternoon showing. Ecevit. leader of the Republican People's party and a poet with liberal views, has cautioned his coalition partner against "overzealousness." a warning obviously pointed toward the justice minister. A radical religious party that appeals to the devout Moslem beliefs of Turkey's peasantry. National Salvation advocates return to the strict Islamic moral code, which kept women veil- ed and segregated until Kemal Ataturk formed the secular Turkish republic and passed modernizing reforms in the 1920s and 1930s. offensive material appears one of the main items of sale, Mr. Hosty said citizens are being asked to not patronize such stores. Asked about preliminary findings of the U.S. surgeon general who studied effects of pornography in the U.S.A.. Mr. Hosty replied with a reference to the preamble of the Salvation Army statement. "We believe that obscenity and pornography demean human dignity, cater to lust rather than love, advocate a promiscuity which threatens family life, and are contributing factors to moral corruption and socially destructive conduct. This belief is supported by the Judaeo Christian teaching which emphasizes the power of inward thought on human conduct." Mr. Hosty said The Army acknowledges -tension between freedom of choice and protection of public good and that the issue is a complicated one. "We believe theatres which purportedly serve the public have a responsibility to the public at large and that they should not be allowed to exploit human weakness for selfish and financial goals. Consequently, we don't believe that there should be relaxation of present obscenity legislation but rather that it should be clarified and enforced." No plans are afoot for confidential Salvation Army operated clinics where adults, teenagers and children could con'f identially go for anonymous answers for sexual problems, Mr. Hosty said. "Every Salvation Army officer seeks to serve in the capacity of a confidential adviser." Mr. Hosty explained. "The Salvation Army has never subscribed to 'alternative outlets' which are simply the substitution of one problem for Mr. Hosty said. "We do believe that there are profitable uses of time and energy. and encourage work and recreational therapy in rehabilitation centres for alcoholics. Similarly, we do not regard 'masturbation, legalized prostitution, dildos or plastic dolls' as acceptable alternatives to the subscription to pornography. There are more profitable uses of one's time and energy than the employment of such alternative perversions, and we would seek to suggest such on an individual basis related to the person being counselled." Back room Maj. Joan Pierce of the Lethbridge corps said she has had some personal concerns over language used on certain television programs, but has to admit she has been slow to do anything about it. "When stationed in Wetaskiwin." Major Pierce said, "we approached local store keepers about books. They agreed to remove some offensive volumes from their shelves and place them in a seperate room at the rear of the store out of sight of children and young people." Vigil lady brings own statue By GEORGE CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) For nearly a year now. church au- thorities have been trying to get Veronica Luekens to stop it Bat she still keeps holding her vigils in the church yard. And the people keep showing up. "It's a problem to the par- ish ztA to the neijjtiborhood says Msgr. J. Emmett McDonald, pastor of St. Rob- ert BeHannine's Roman Cath- olic church in the city's-Bay- side section of Queens. Mrs. Luekens. who claims to have visions of the Virgin Mary at the site of a shnne on the parish grounds, holds regular gatherings there, at- tracting visitors from many states She reports messages from the Virgin and saints, and blessings for those on hand. Bat church officials, from the focal parish to the dioce- san and national offices, have checked into the matter, con- cluded there is nothing to it. and urged a halt to the hoopla over it. Catholics should "accept ihis informed guidance and direct their energies and in- terest to more appropriate areas of religious concern." says Bishop James S. Rausch of Washington, D.C.. secre- tary of tfie National Confer- ence of Catholic Bishops. This recent admonition was simply Jhe latest in a pro- longed church eifort to put a damper on the affair. However. Msgr. McDonald says Mrs. Luekens continues to hold her vigils, on holy day evenings and later afternoons on Sundays, drawing crowds of 50 to 200 to the outdoor gatherings. "It has created many diffi- culties in the way of noise, the sound of the speakers, the traffic congestion, the trampl- ing of residential lawns and the invasions of people's rights." Msgr. McDonald says. A "carnival it was termed by the chancellor of the Brooklyn diocese, Msgr. James P. King, noting that visitors leave debris on the yards of surrounding homes as well as the parish grounds. The Brooklyn diocese in- vestigated ihe alleges! visions last tail, declared them spurious and forbade cbnrch members from attending the vigils Mrs. mother oJ five children and 3 member of the parish, claims she began having the visions about four years ago at a shrine on the parish grounds, and that they have continued. The parish removed the shrine, a statue of the Ma- donna, in efforts to get her to halt her meetings, but this didn't deter her. She now brings her own statue. McDonald says Uial in his view, "nothing super- natural is happening and be adds: "She should obey her bishop and desist." NORBRIQGE COMMUNITY CHURCH Pntor: D.
