severe setback in his drive to have 42 magazines which were banned from Iowa newsstands declared obscene by the courts Federal District Judge Robert Van Pelt said he will not make any ruling on whether the magazines are obscene during the court test which will open later this month here Van Pelt also delayed for one week the opening of the trial Publishers of 22 of the magazines which Erbe banned last September brought an injunctive action against the Republican attorney general claiming Erbe was actually precensoring their magazines Precensorship is unconstitutional under both the S and Iowa law but Erbe has contended all along that he was not prejudging future is ues of the publications Erbe in his answer to the pub lishers suit had sought to make the case a fullblown test of Iowas 73yearold obscenity statute He asked for a court ruiing on whether the magazines were ob scene and Van Pelt earlier in One Mans Opinion A Radio Commentary By W EARL HALL GlobeGazette Editor

year just ended Only in recent days have we been able to draw a deep breath again Coupled with the threat of like developments on our railroads in our major aircraft and dicated that he would call an advisory jury to determine whetherthe magazines were in fact obscene BUT VAN PELT ruled Mon day that the question of obscen ity was immaterial to the case as brought by the publish ers Attorneys for the publishers said earlier that they would not want a ruling on whether their magazines were obscene but are going to center their case on the matter of precensorship However Van Pelt said that if thepublishersshould ever missile plants equipment to and in electric mention just a few points of peril there is z full awareness on the part of the public that it is without the means for protecting itself against labor and managemnt controversies in our economy We havent yet counted the price paid for the 115 day steel strike It cost 500000 steel work ers almost two billion dollars in wages it cost the steel in dustry a billion and a half dol lars plus and the government was short a billion six hundred million dollars in tax revenue BUT THATS ONLY A START of the story The repercussions from the steel stoppage were enormous but unmeasurafale Perhaps the best index to the indirect penalty imposed by the of gross national production A byproduct of farreachinu significance growing out of the of confidence thep Sim ihi claim that their magazines are not obscene Erbe then would have a chance to put the ques tion of obscenity back into a case There seems to be little chance that the attorneys would even bring up the snarled ques tion of obscenity ERBE DISAPPOINTED by the ruling admitted that the publishers had scored a vic tory However he indicated he would still press for a ruling on obscenity by prosecuting a mag azine dealer who had begun selling some of the magazines on Erbes list of 42 porno graphic magazines which the attorney general ordered off the newsstands late last summer Erbe said the test cas against the magazine dealer would be started pretty soon in district court He did not in dicate which dealer would be prosecuted but said his assist ants have
