The movement on the part of a few censors to
decide what we will and will not read is nothing
short of supression of this freedom. The individual
has the right to choose for himself the literature he
wishes to read, not the censor.
The Louisville Retail Drug Association, using a
list of books and magazines compiled by the National Organization of Decent Literature, an offshoot of the National Catholic Legion of Decency,









to read.
There are many American novels, which, because
of their realism, contain matter that might not be
intended for the eyes of emotionally immature children. However, that gives the censors no reason
to ban them. Many educational books have been
put on the black list because of this.
Unfortunately, literature which is interesting and
worthy of reading is not always "pure" and on the
fifth grade level. Even in Shakespeare's times people recognized that people are people, and the
popularity of Shakespeare's plays is due partly to
the fact that they give an amazingly deep insight
to human nature. Even the censors would be reluctant to admit that we have remained socially and
mentally stagnant since the reign of Victoria.
The American public is fully capable of showing
which books they, want to read and those which
they consider "trash." Admittedly, many of the

behind his shoulder. The same applies to
"sex" novels.
If the reader is emotionally well balanced, he will
judge the material for its overall worth, and not on
the individual passages. It would lie much simpler
and, we believe, much more justifiable to ask, or
demand, that owners of bookstores refuse to sell
books of that type to people under college age.
Thomas Jefferson, in 1S00, summed up the situation perfectly when he said, "I have sworn upon
the altar of God, hostility against every form of
tyranny over the mind of men."
While we rant and rave about the threats of communism to this country, people such as these
censors are in the act of undermining one
of our greatest freedoms freedom of choice.

The idea that a board of censors, far removed
from the public wall, can decide which books are
"obscene" and those w lu'di aren't is as repugnant as
any attempt to stifle freedom of the mind. Considering that some books and magazines are obscene and detrimental, these censors should consider that public opinion, and only public opinion
