September 8, 1975 Gloria N. Naysnon, d
seeminqly respectable housewife, was convicted in
Federal Court today of buying a $19.95 cuckoo-clock
plant holder. 1Q7f.
Flayshon, 39, was arrested under the 1975
Unnecessary Puchases Act, passed by Congress in
July as a desperation attempt to curb inflation. The
new law requires consumers to prove that any goods
they buy are needed for their "health, safety or
W During 9the dramatic trial, Prosecutor Franklin
Furter noted that Flayshon was already on probation -nnhocinn

PUlS'Vn herS'ense, the sobbing three-time loser said
only that she needed the cuckoo-clock plant holder ,
"to brighten up the living room."
The jury required just 17 minutes to reach the
guilty verdict. , .
Flayshon was arrested after her husband came
home to find the new cuckoo-dock plant holder as
well as a plea scrawled in lipstick on the bathroom
mirror: "Stop me before I buy again!"
Police found her in the Imported Curios Section of
a discount house. They said she was pale, trembling
and perspiring. They said, she begged them to allow
her to buy "just one little $1.95 Zamboangan Rain
Goddess" before they took her in a plea they, of
course, refused. ,
Under relentless questioning by Prosecutor
Furter, Flayshon admitted she had violated the
terms of her probation and had not only read ads in
newspapers and magazines, but watched a commer
cial on televisions..
"I had already gotten up to go wash my hands 18
times in 29 minutes," she told the jury. "So I just sat
there exhausted, telling myself, 'One teensy
commercial won't hurt'.
"But they showed this really adorable cuckoo
clock plant holder and this indescribable craving
came over me, and I knew I just had to have a fix
and..." At this point she broke down in tears and

that she has been conditioned since infancy by a

by an insatiable craving.
