Transcript 12 MONTROSE VOICE/June 11, 1982 Gay man, claimed raped by woman, to face manslaughter charges International Gay News Agency A man who claimed he was gay and had to kill a woman in self-defense because she raped him and threatened to kill him will not have to face a retrial in San Diego for murdering the woman, even though the jury did not formally acquit him. But the California state Supreme Court in a 4-to-2 decision ruled that Clifford Stone can still be retried for manslaughter. Stone was tried a single charge of first- degree murder of Rose McNeil- Muhammad on November 9, 1979. After nine days of deliberation, the jury said it was deadlocked, and the judge declared a mistrial. Stone appealed, claiming that he could not be tried again for murder because the jury had informally acquitted him of first- and second-degree murder charges. The high court agreed, saying that a retrial would violate Stone's constitutional right not to be tried twice for the same crime. The court decision to let Stone face manslaughter charges, if not first- and second- degree charges, made no reference to the unusual defense put forth by Stone during his 10-week trial. But court documents noted that Stone made two tape-recorded confessions in which he said that he was gay and that he had killed the woman in self-defense after she raped him. According to the documents, two experts testified that the dead woman had a "propensity for sexual aggression." The experts (male professors from Yale and USC medical schools) testified that there has been proof that females can rape men. They both concluded, "based on data on the deceased," that McNeil- Muhammad had indeed raped Stone. Originally Stone was charged with rape, sodomy, and forced oral copulation in addition to murder. But by the time of his trial, all but the murder charge were dropped. Brother can you spare $4.50? Pacific News Service If you can afford this product, you probably don't need it. A New Mexico artist is selling tin cups, suitable for panhandling, billed as the perfect gift for victims of Reagan omics. Jerome Milord, whose cups are sold as the "survival kit of the 80s," says his industry may be the only one to survive Republican economic policies. For $4.50, Milord's survival kit includes a cup and a brochure reminding prospective panhandlers to "hold your head high, you are following a good old American tradition." Circuses coming in from the rain America's traveling circuses are folding up the big top for good, reports the Chicago Tribune. The Circus Historical Society says most circuses are following the path of the industry leader, Ringling Brothers, and renting auditoriums instead of setting up tents at each stop. Currently, only three major circuses still perform under the big top, and although the society says TV sports events and movies are cutting into attendance, that doesn't mean the circus is dead. Last year, about 12 million people attended circuses. GARGO HOUSE A new shop for Montrose Clothes Unusual Imports Items from Far-a-way Places 1802 Park St. Between Westheimer & W.

All over Houston each week, thousands of gay readers now pick the MONTROSE VOICE as their first choice. In fact, the "Newspaper of Montrose" is now one of the largest gay newspapers in the country. This is even more significant when you consider that the VOICE is not nationwide, not statewide. The VOICE is ./us. Houston. The MONTROSE VOICE distributes 7000 copies each week—all in Houston—that get into the hands of an estimated 18,800 readers. In fact, the VOICE'S Houston distribution is nearly twice that of our competitor. To regular readers of the VOICE, our rapidly exploding new popularity comes as no surprise. After all... • Because the VOICE is just Houston, readers and advertisers don't get lost or confused by ads from other cities. • The VOICE is a professional news operation. We investigate stories and state sources. News is serious and we're serious about it. • The VOICE has each week page after page of news about gay Houston and Houston gay entertainment. Our competitor only devotes a few inches each week to similar Houston material. • The VOICE'S new sports page provides in depth stories each week on the Montrose Sports Association—including softball, bowling and volleyball. Our competitor devotes less than half as much space each week to Montrose sports coverage. • The VOICE covers national gay news and presents in-depth national gay features each week, as the VOICE subscribes to all six existing gay news and feature services, including news from the International Gay News Agency and features from Stonewall Features Syndicate. Our competitor subscribes to none of these services. • The VOICE has award winning cartoonists, including our own Max Angst (who is now syndicated nationwide), San Francisco's Gary Larson and Austin's Ben Sargent (winner of the 1982 Pulitzer Prize for Editorial Cartooning). • The VOICE has the experience. Henry McClurg, our publisher, has been producing newspapers in Houston since 1973. • There's no "thumbing" by news and advertising in the VOICE. Most of our readers read each page, page by page. And, most of our readers read the VOICE at home, not hurriedly at the bars. At home they've got the time to read the publication thoroughly. • The VOICE has earned the respect of its readers. They know if they read it in the VOICE, they can believe it. • The VOICE circulates through over 70 major distribution points. Yes, Houston's turned to the VOICE in record numbers. And as a reader or advertiser, we invite you to turn to us too. We, as the only gay publication just for Houston, would like to be YOUR first choice. And even though we now out-circulate our competitor almost two-to-one in Houston, our advertising rates are lower—much lower. New advertisers in the VOICE, who are used to advertising in the other publication, receive two big surprises: • The results they receive with nearly twice the Houston circulation they had been used to, and • Their bill. You see, quite simply, they'd been paying too much for advertising and getting too little actual circulation in return. •Fi«_re. ar» a. e.tim_U-_ hy M<>STW BE W Ht K !(,,„.„„,, MKmhlt an extensive,!, mnnth analysis enilmit with th'' IwAofFeb. _h. 1982.THE VOICE GUAJUNTEES nsI THIN If advertisinK sales people from anV Publication suite different future* uss for ., sworn printers affidavit 'The Vtlirh will K|ad!y provide one Cto DO* .rati "readership" and •circulation "Circulation" mean* the actual numb.r ■ "Reader-hip" means the number of readers, usually a fiKure 2 Mian industry stand . th. circulation figure, since an average sinitlc copy wl]| ,.nl| upocm« read by more than one We invite you to turn to us too.
