Abstract

In this letter to the editor, citizen Mrs. John Pfeifer laments the results of the two recent court cases against distributors selling "indecent" magazines and books. The writer states that legal action is difficult and time consuming, but that effective action can be taken to clean up newsstands on an individual and community level. She urges citizens to approach sellers in their communities and ask them to remove offensive materials.
