He was ordained in St. ) James Cathedral in 1945 by the Most Reverend Bishop Gerald Shaughnessy, S.M., and received his first appoint- ment as curate to the Church of the Immaculate in Seattle. Following this he served at Holy Family Church, Auburn, returning to Immaculate a year later. In 1947 Father O'Larey was ;' assigned to Christ the King Church, Seattle where he served six years. WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Supreme Court's lat- est action on obscenity and censorship appears to bring these' controversial problems no closer to solution than before. The Supreme Court, revers- ing bans June 22 against a con- troversial movie and a number of paperback books, demon- strated only that it shares the doubts of the country at large about what obscenity is and what society can do about it. In a bewildering downpour of opinions--10 in all--on the last day of their 1963-'64 term, the nine justices showed themselves sharply divided on the issues. Several said they consider it proper for the Supreme Court to try to decide the question of obscenity in particular cases; several said they would leave the problem to state and lower Federal courts; one said he re- gards only "hard core" por- nography as illegal; and two said they think no form of ex- pression can constitutionally be banned. A symptom of the justices' profound disagreement was the fact that in neither case was there a majority opinion. A majority of justices agreed , in each instance on the over all result, but they could not come to terms on their rea- sons. And, in their various opinions, concurring opinions, and dissents, they traded blows briskly on the issues involved. The two cases came from Ohio and Kansas. In the Ohio case, Nico Jacobellis, manager of a movie theater in Cleveland Heights, had been fined $2,500 " for possessing and showing the French movie "The Lovers." The Ohio Supreme Court had upheld his conviction. In the Kansas case, Harold and Robert Thompson and their P-K News Service of Junction City were protesting a court order directing destruction of 1,715 paperback copies of 31 novels seized by authorities. The Kansas Supreme C o u r t had ruled against the Thomp- SONS. The Supreme Court's judg- ment in both cases was an- nounced by Justice William $. Brennan, who also wrote the longest affirmative opinion in each case. The justices noted that they had viewed "The Lovers" before rendering their opinion in Jacobellis' appeal. In "The Lovers" ease, the vote for reversal was 6-3, while on the Thompsons' ap- peal it was 7-2. Justices John M. Harlan and Tom C. Clark dissented in both eases, while Chief Justice Earl Warren dissented on the Ohio ease only. At the same time it was hand- ing down opinions in these two cases, the court also acted on five other cases involving al- leged obscenity and censorship by brief orders. By identical margins of 5-4 it summarily reversed F 1 o r i d a court rulings upholding bans on the controversial Henry Miller novel "Tropic of Cancer" and another book called "Pleasure Was My Business." The action by the court on "Tropic of Cancer" indicates an eventual green light for distribution of the much-debated book in the s e v e r a 1 states where courts have so far upheld bans on it. Without comment the high court agreed to consider a chal- lenge to Maryland's film licens- ing law which requires that movies be submitted to a state board of censors for approval before being shown publicly. The high court directed that the case be argued during its 1964:65 term. The court refused "for want of a substantial Federal ques- tion" to consider a challenge to a New Jersey law strength- ening that state's ban on tie-in sales of books and magazines. The law requires publication distributors to pick up un- wanted publications from re- tailers within two days or face possible fines or jail sentences. It had been challenged as a form of "prior restraint" on the distribution of literature by the Hudson County News Corn- pony, the state's largest whole- sale distributor of newspapers, books and magazines. The Supreme Court also de- clined to review the convic- tion of Harry Fried, a New York bookseller, for selling an allegedly obscene book and photographs. Justice Brennan, in his opin- ion on "The Lovers," in which he was joined by Justice Arthur Goldberg, strongly reaffirmed his commitment to the test of obscenity which he laid down in his landmark of 1957 Roth- Alberts ruling. There he defined the legal test of obscenity this way: "Whether to the average person, applying contempo- rary community standards, the dominant theme of the material taken as a whole appeals to prurient interest." This definition, he conceded, is "not perfect (but) any sub- stitute would raise equally dif- ficult problems." He emphasized the earlier decision's declaration that ob- scenity is excluded from the constitutional protection of free speech only "because it is 'ut- terly without redeeming social importance'" and that the mere "portrayal" of sex is not enough to classify material as obscene. "It follows that material deal- ing with sex in a manner that advocates ideas.., or that has literary or scientific or artistic value or any other form of so- cial importance, may not be branded as obscenity and de- nied the constitutional protec- tion," he said. He also declared that the test of "contemporary commu- nity standards" does not mean that the question of obscenity can be decided by each local community where the problem arises, but rather that the standard varies "from time to time," not place to place. Acknowledging t h e legiti- mate concern of eommunities with protecting young people from objectionable material, he said this aim might be "better served by laws aimed specifically at preventing dis- tribution of objectionable ma- terial to ehildren, rather than at totally prohibiting its dis- semination." Justice Potter Stewart in a concurring opinion said he has reached the conclusion that un- der the First and Fourteenth Amendments "criminal laws in this area are constitutionally limited to hard-core pornog- raphy. Justice Goldberg in a brief concurring opinion said "The Lovers" contains only one love scene "deemed objectionable" and this is "so fragmentary and fleeting that only a cen- sor's alert would make an audi- ence conscious that something 'questionable' is b e i n g por- trayed." Justices Hugo Black and Wil- liam O. Douglas repeated their longstanding position that any conviction of exhibiting a mo- tion picture is unconstitutional abridgement of freedom of the press. Chief Justice W a r r e n was joined in his dissenting opinion by Justice Clark. Like Justice Brennan, the Chief Justice ac- cepted the Roth-Alberts ob- scenity test--but he made it plain that he interprets it in a significantly different manner. Specifically, he said: "It is my belief that when the court said in Roth that obscenity is to be defined by reference to 'community standards,' it meant community standards --not a national standard, as is sometimes argued. I be- lieve that there is no prov- able 'national standard,' and perhaps there should be none." The Chief Justice said he would leave the determination of obscenity to the appropriate state and Federal courts, with the Supreme Court limiting it- self to "a consideration only of whether there is sufficient evidence in the record upon which a finding of obscenity could be made." Justice Harlan made a sim- ilar point in his separate dis- sent. "The more I see of these obscenity cases," he said, "the more convinced I become that in permitting the states wide, the public interest against the rights of free expression. Justice Brennan was joined in his opinion in the Kansas case by Chief Justice Warren, Justice Byron White and Jus- tice Goldberg. He gave no opinion on the alleged obscenity of the books taken from the Thompsons' newsstand, but instead con- fined himself to a finding that the procedures followed in is- suing the warrant for the seiz- ure of the books and authoriz- ing their impounding pending hearing were unconstitutional. This was so, he said, because the procedures "did not ade- quately safeguard against the s u p p r e s s i o n of nonobscene books." Justice Stewart, concurring, said he thought the procedures would have been constitutional if the books had been hard-core pornography. He held, however. that they were not. Justice Black and Douglas s'aid again that they think the First and Fourteenth Amend- ments bar any slate action "abridging the freedom of spech, or of the press." Justice Harlan was joined in his dissent by Justice Clark. He said it was "quite plain that these so-called 'novels' have 'been reason- ably found in state judicial procedings to treat with sex in a fundamentally offensive manner' and that the state's criteria for judging their obscenity are rational." He also criticized Justice Brennan's attack on the pro- cedures followed by Kansas in seizing the books, saying it "serves unnecessarily to handi- but not Federally unrestricted, cap the states in their efforts scope in this field, lies the -to curb the dissemination of best promise" for balancing, obscene material."

Rites Commemorate Visit JERUSALEM, Israel-- Rites commemorating the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin to her cousin Eliz- abeth will be observed on the feastday, July 2, at the small village known as Ain Karim, five miles southwest of here. Even today, the winding road that the pilgrim travels vivid- ly recalls the Gospel's refer- once to the "hill country," that  surrounds the valley which is the birthplace of St. John the Baptist. The Church of the Visitation is situated on one of the hill- sides. It is still a small "labor of love" to get there for it must be done on foot. The climb has Us rewards, howev- er, for the scenic view of the terraced olive and fruit trees is captivating. Across the small valley can be seen the Convent of the Sisters of Sion and its spacious grounds. The founder of this sisterhood, F a t h e r Maria Al- phonse Ratisbonne, is buried in the convent cemetery. Passing through the ornate grill one enters a courtyard and immediately his attention is drawn to a mosaic in the ex- terior wall of the Church. It shows Our Lady seated upon a donkey and being conducted on her journey by angels, and is one of the most beautiful mosaics in the Holy Land. To the right a boundary wall con- tains some 40 plaques on which are written the Magnif- icat in different languages. At ) its base a flower bed serves as constant reverence by mankind of Mary's words. Almost all pilgrims take the opportunity to quench their thirst at a spring which is fed by a small mountain stream. The church is built upon and includes the remains of earlier churches. It was com- pleted as recently as 1955. Q VISITATION COMMEMORATED HERE ON FEAST DAY. The joyful spirit of the Visita- tion is represented in the dee- orations, especially the large frescoes' depicting Mary un- der various titles. Attendance at the ceremonies commemorating the feast is generally limited to priests, Sisters and school children who come from Jerusalem be- cause the 300 or so Chris- tians once living in the area left during the Holy Land war of 1948. Following the solemn Mass, sung by the Franciscans, a pro- cession winds its way through the garden singing the Magnif- feat, the Litany and other Mar- ian hymns. Solemn benediction in the afternoon is the closing ceremony. Japanese Sisters Going to Paraguay ENCARNACION, Paraguay this summer.
