'Identity' Ban Denied

An officer in the Crime Prevention Bureau of the Cambridge Police yesterday asserted that his department has taken no action against alleged obscenity in Identity Poetry magazine.

Although the bureau would normally handle such a charge, Francis J. Barry, detective lieutenant, claimed he knew nothing of complaints against the latest issue of the magazine. Since Chief of Police Brennan stated earlier that he had no knowledge of any objections, it would appear that opposition is limited.

Lieutenant Frederick Marckini said he believed that police were requesting removal of the issue, but no newsstand operator in the Square has reported such a request.
