Abstract

Claude Cummings, during his testimony in front of a grand jury, stated that as a distributor he would have to double the number of employees he hires to censor the magazines he sells. He stated that blaming the distributor is folly because publishers dictate what gets sent out, and to his knowledge nothing he sells is illegal in any other state.
