very close to It is strange that I was thinking of an incident that occurred last Friday night when I read the article in Thursdays My his future my 3yearold great niece and her father had eaten They had pizza and the adults had shared a pitcher of As my son and future wife were they were followed by a New Braunfels police officer all the way to Preiss Heights from My son was becoming very curious as to why he was not being pulled He turned around and was then The officer accused my son of be ing He never asked for his drivers license or insurance He was only accused and I work for a very well known law firm in San 1 have always tried to teach my children to be and to respect authority and to cooperate with any I have now advised them to ask for the name of the police for his badge number and number of his police You would be amazed at the number of calls my firm receives each day for police harassment and This is a crime and is a civil I protect from ifnfeqtype1 as parents ideal with the New Braunfels and find out why this is their I heard something this morning that is very relevant to this A judge said that as we have the right to be left This is true for our I know there are

blame Rudy Reimer and Leroy Goodson are making a career of being on the NB1SD school How about giving someone a There must be some psychological need to feel On another 1 read recently in the HeraldZeitung a letter by some fella named Nowotny that we should back President Reagan in everything that he did Hes probably one of the people who backed Nixon up until the time he was nearly im peached Reagan is just as crooked and just as dangerous as if not more Reagan was selling arms to the very people who murdered 241 Marines and countless American civilians Whatever his he was going against stated policies of If that isnt what else can it be Reagan should be The president keeps telling us that he wants to get to the bottom of this scandal and yet he says he wont question Marine Oliver North or John Poindexter out of respect for their Fifth Amendment What a laugh During the McCarthy witch hunt for it Was this same Reagan who berated fellow members of the film industry for invoking the Fifth Reagan said anyone who invoked the Fifth Amendment surely had something to Is he afraid of what North and Poindexter will say And where is all that money which disappeared into the Swiss banks Former John in his commissions states that Reagan was ill advised and ill serv That may but in the final analysis it was Reagan who gave the go Personally I think Tower is full of What hes trying to do is ex tricate his fellow Republican as much as All Reagan does when asked serious questions is give flip one liners or just Gee ot Son of a So much for the Great Com municator now you

favor of calling police if you see someone with a gun on streets of this then that should be probable cause for the police to apprehend them for possession and jail them before they shoot out the It

Congressman Mike Synar is back on the warpath He has his tomahawk poised and he has reihtroducea the tobacco In the process lie would do violence to the principle of a free Cigarettes historically have been a favorite target of heath nuts and These are people who find their most gratifying pleasure in suppressing other peoples and lately their anti nicotine crusade has taken on an almost virulent Beverly by way of has adopted an ordinance to ban smoking in even in segregated sections of and the federal government has exil ed employees who smoke to basement My own for the is decisively One has to agree with Jim Cooper of Tennessee when he says that to many tobacco smoke is obnoxious its like body Mike a former firebrand at the Federal Trade is quite right on observing that there are people who care pas sionately about having smoke blown in their All the there is something to be said in behalf of the smoker who wants to smoke under circumstances that give minimal or 110 of fense at to And to return to Synars cigarettes are a legal product of American agriculture and They are as legal as cows milk and the casinos of Synars bill would prohibit all newspaper and magazine malchbook and all other written ot other material used for promoting the sale or consumption of tobacco products to He would make it unlawful for the Virginia Slims people to sponsor a tennis tourna Free samples would be He seems to have overlooked but perhaps a timely amendment will cure that I have never understood how newspapers and magazines constitutionally can be forbidden to ac cept advertising for legal products The Supreme Courts occasional promouncemenls to this effect are remarkably The Constitution says flatly that Congress shall make no law abridging freedom of the The language makes no distinction between commercial and noncommercial in 1980 Justice Powell peered into the penumbra of the First Amendment and there he found a fourpart test for restrictions on adver A majority of the court held that govern ment may prohibit advertising that is misleading or or promotes an unlawful Advertising may be restricted only If the govern ments interest is The restrictions must directly advance the governments interest restrictions must be no more extensive than necessary to serve that Synars proposed ban fails the an Im aginative argument could be cooked up that cigarettes are bad for ones the national interest demands that our armed forces be healthy therefore Congress may ban cigarette advertising under its power to raise armies and to maintain a navy That kind of sophistry is un worthy of a student in firstyear law Suppose Synars bill is passed Given the moun ting it may indeed pass We then will have congressional precedent for banning adver tisements of other legal products Alcohol causes terrible damage to health Why not ban advertis ing of wine and beer Obesity leads to heart attacks Why not ban the advertisement of fattening foods Many persons regard gambling as a greater curse than nicotine It would make under Synars solicitous to for bid advertising of legal casinos and parimutuei tracks The Puritanical streak runs a long way back in American law A century under the goading of Anthony Congress adopted a sheaf of postal regulations on the mailing ol obscene matter many of these laws are still on the books You cannot mall a bottle
