This litigation is similar to the Tourlanes cases (Tourlanes Publishing Co. v. Summerfield), 97 U.S.App.D.C.-- , 231 F.2d 773. Oakley is a photographer and not a publisher. However, he sells numerous admittedly innocuous books and publications, in addition to the photographs found by the Post Office Department to be obscene. The judgment of [98 U.S.App.D.C. 23] the District Court, which was similar to its order in Tourlanes, will likewise be affirmed (No. 12,971). During oral argument, counsel for Oakley made the same statement concerning his crossappeal as was made by counsel for Tourlanes. On a like basis, the appeals by Oakley will be dismissed (Nos. 12,918 and 13,023).
