Police labeled it a hit-and·run and said ht. was not wearing his helmet at the time. Bennett had been in a coma since the May 9 accident. He had worked at the House of Pies for about five years and was a member of the Texas Riders motorcycle club. His remains were cremated and the ashee were being returned to California. Mary's gets closed "We are closed due to a problem with the occupancy permit," said Andy Mills, man· ager of Mary's Lounge, 1022 Westheimer. The club was closed by city officials Tuesday afternoon, May 25, and was still closed two days later. A large sign painted on the front win­dow said, "Out of Order, Shop Somewhere Else Tonight." Mills said workmen were attempting to make repairs as fast as Possible so they could get approval from the fire marshall to reopen before City Hall closed Friday. Otherwise, Mills said, they would have to remain closed over the weekend. Rumors spread through Montrose Tues· day night that police had "raided" Mary's because "It's that time of year." Gay Pride Week is approaching. Houston Police through two years ago had annually conducted "inspections" of gaybarsjustpriortoGayPrideWeek. Two years ago, Mary's was the victim and 61 were arrested, charged with public intoxi­cation or a related charge. Fifty of those charged at Mary's went to trial but only three were convicted. Two of those convic­tions were later overturned by an appeals court. Mills said this was definitely not a "police raid" though, as he admitted the dub had problems regarding their occu· pancy license "Besides, it's still too early for the annual police raids," said one loyal Mary's customer, who asked to remain annonymous. Texas A&M cleared A federal judge has ruled that Texas A&M University's refusal in 1977 to officially recognize a gay students organization did not violate the students' constitutional rights. The Houston Post reported that U.S. District Judge Ross Sterling found in favor of the university in the lawsuit filed against the school by Gay Student Services. The organization, which attorneys said has about 50 members, had sought official recognition by the university so it could use school facilities for meetings, distrib. ute literature and post notices of its meet· ings on campus. The newspaper's federal courts reporter said that Sterling ruled that the universi· ty's action was not based on contempt for the group's ideas about homosexuality but was in keeping with its practiceofnotoffi. cially recognizing social groups. Larry Sauer, the plaintiffs' attorney, said the case will be appealed. Teacher suspended for 30 days over his course on sex The "Psychology of Sex" professor in Long Beach, Calif., who gave course credit for orgies and gay encounters was sus· pended with pay from his teaching post for 30 days May 26, reported Aasociated Press. The discipline against Dr. Barry Singer came a day after he admitted having sex with some of his students at CaJifornia State University-Long Beach. But he said he no longer stays at parties where stu- MAY 28, 1982 /MONTROSE VOICE 3 dents take their clothes off. AP said that trustees of the 19---campus state college system met in executive ses­sion May 26 to discuss Singer, a tenured associate professor whose class has trig­gered protests by politicians and religious groups. What's in a name? The Air Force is out.dated, or at least maybe its name is. Colorado Congresaman Den Dramer has introduced a bill to bring together the various parts of the military space pro­gran under the Air Force, which would be renamed the "U.S. Aerospace Force," reparts Washington Post. Kramer says it's vital for the country to unify its space program as it turns toward strategic uses of space. But undersecre­tary of the Air Force Edward Aldridge does not like the proposed change, saying it "might imply that the Air Force should devote less time to its other critical needs in air operations." Australian rights group heckles Falwall SYDNEY, Australia(AP)-TheRev. Jerry Falwell, leader of Moral Majority, was heckled by a rights group calling itself the "New South Wales Moral Majority" while on a trip to Sydney Australia, reported Associated Press. The crowd chanted May 20, "Who's the Moral Majority? It's gays, women and blacks," to which AP said . Falwell responded, "There are kooks m every town." "It doesn't matter whether you are in Australia, New York, or Lynchburg (Vir­ginia, his hometown). There are those peo-­ple who are not willing to debate on a level, intelligent basis. They must shout, disrupt and so on," Falwell was quoted. Montrose Mouth Switchboard has info on Pride Week If you need updated daily information about Houston's Gay Pride Week. you can call the Gay Switchboard at 529-3211 They'll have the latest info on all the events and they'll have info on places to stay, directions, emergency phone numbers and a general rundown on nightlife in Montrose, if you need guidance in that direction. The phones ae staffed each evening, 6:00 p.m. to midnight. -•- You young whippersnappers may not know it, but there used to be two service stations on the comer of Montrose and Westheimer The Aussie's Way liquor store was a Texaco up till about a year ago. And many years back a Conoco sat where Prince's Hamburgers now is perched The complex containing Liberty Bank was a general shopping center-with a Walgreen's and a super market But does anyone know what sat at 1022 Westheimer before Mary's sat there? And who was Mary? You'll get the answer next week. -·- We've mentioned it before but they've asked us to mention it again: the Montroae Cllnlc is looking for volunteers to spend one or two evenings a month at the clinic. They're short physicians, nurses (RNs and LVNs). lab technicians, and others. especially during peak hours D'clt Ad•m1 at the clinic can be reached at 528-5531 Or drop by during busmess hours, which are Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings and Sunday afternoon. -·- You thought your rent was high?

Then the advocacy generally switches to freedom from the press -•- If you enjoyed Tycho·s horoscopes last week in the VOICE. you no doubt enjoyed them the week before too-'cause they were the same. We goofed and we apologize. This week, we're back on track Now we ain't the only one who recently made this blunder. The Houston Chronicle about three weeks back ran the wrong comics. On a Monday, they ran Tuesday's comics. And on Tuesday, they apologized and ran both days. It kind of confused those of us who follow Star Trek there on their funny pages But several weeks before that, in the Sunday color comics, they got real confused and ran the latest Star Wars segment instead of Star Trek This didn't please the Houston Post too much, which has the contract for the city for Star Wars and also had that day's Star Wars correctly printed. But the problem was the Los Angeles Times Syndicate, which handles -~th co_mic strips. and which got their mailings mixed up. The Post spotted they had gotten Star Trek instead of Star Wars and then got the correct one before press time. The Chronicle missed the boat -·- This is Memorial Day weekend-and that means many of us here at the VOICE are in Denver for the Gay Press Association convention. Also in Denver with us are two Montrose Sports Association volleyball teams for a national gay volleyball tournament The mile high city this weekend is the high gay city of America.

The trial for Houston police officer Kevin McCoy, charged with negligent homicide in the death of gay acti­vist Fred Paez, was delayed until August because McCoy'• defense attorney told the judge he had another trial in progre88-a murder case in Conroe.

On May 18, U.S. DistrictJudgeBarbara Rothstein said that because Sgt. Perry Watkins of Tacoma told authorities that he was gay when he was drafted he cannot be kicked out now. Government lawyers had argued that a Department Of Defense order holds homo­sexuality incompatible with Army ser· vice. But Watkins showed that an Army psychiatrist approved him for service despite his acknowledgement of his sexual orientation. The judge further ruled that Watkins cannot be reduced in status because of his lawsuit or refused the right to attend Anny training programs. But she left unanswered whether the Army can bar Watkins from re-enlisting when his present tour of duty expires in October. Watkins filed suit against the Army after his security clearence was.revoked last year. The ACLU helped him with his suit. "I like the Army," Watkins said. "I've given them 14 years of my life and all along they've said 'no problem.' But after 14 years, I'm not going to start from scratch again. That's not going to happen." E equals MM-squared Pacific Newa Service She was the most beautiful actress of her day. He was called the greatest genius of his time. And now there's a book claiming Ma rilyn Monroe may have had a brief romance with the Father of Relativity, Albert Einstein. Author Ruth Bimkrant claims in her "Fascinating Facts About Love, Sex and Marriage," that Monroe once confided to Shelley Winters that she'd compiled a list of attractive men she wanted to have an affair with-and Einstein was on it. "I don't know how many of her choices she achieved," Winters later said, "but after her death I saw a large framed photo­graph of Einstein on the piano. On it was MAY 28, 1982 I MONTROSE VOICE 5 written, 'To Marilyn, with respect and thanks, Albert Einstein." ' GRNL seeks membership in civil rights coalition The Gay Rights National Lobby has applied to join the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, according to GRNL's Executive Director Steve Endean through a press release. Endean described the Leadership Con· ference as the key umbrella group working on civil rights issues at Congress. Several years ago asimilar application by another gay organiation was rejected, but Endean expressed cautious optimism for the Lob­by's application. GRNL has already worked closely with the Leadership Conference on two occa­sions: extension of the Voting Rights Act and the defeatofthenomination of Rev. B. Sam Hart, the anti-gay fundamentalist, to the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. In addition, GRNL has strong relations with a number of organizations such as the National Organization for Women, the American Civil Liberties Union, and the National Women's Political Caucus, which are now part of the group deciding on the application. The press release said, however, that Endean struck a note of caution, citing the fact that there are a number of other member organizations in the Leaders~ip Conference which have not worked with GRNL in the past, including some labor and religious groups. Methodists clear bishop who saw no sin in homosexuality LOS ANGLES, (AP) A Denver bishop accused of violating church law by con­tending that homosexuality is not a sin has been cleared by a United Methodist committee in Los Angeles, reported Asso­ciated Press. "I share their (the committee's) hope that the process of going through theaccu· sations and the assessing of them will nudge us in the direction of more creative dialogue, rather than vindictive re-­marks," Bishop Melvin Wheatley, 67, was quoted after the verdict. But he said he doubted if his experience would cause him to shrink from speaking out in the future. "There's a high risk in pursuing this direction. But I think there is a high risk of sticking to the stereotypes, myths, put downs and rejection of the past," Whea­tley was quoted. The controversy was sparked six months ago when Wheatley wrote to his clergy, ''I clearly do not believe that homo­sexuality is a sin." Florida college gay group returns By International Gay Newa Airency The gay organization at the University of Florida is back in its office on the Gaines· ville campus following its expulsion last March because the Board of Managers of the university said that the group did not "serve the general campus community." UNFLAGS (University of Florida Les­bian and Gay Society) filed a number of lawsuits against both the university and the Board of Regents. Ultimately the Board of Regents forced the university to reverse its decision and return the unas· signed office space to the gay campus group. In return UFLAGS dropped the suits. The executive director of the Florida Task Task Force, in a prepared statement said, "We were appalled when the Univer· sity of Florida evicted UFLAGS so swiftly and so spontaneously, especially on the heels of the Florida Supreme Court ruling which found the Bush-Trask Proviso (an anti·gay resolution which the board referred to) unconstitutional. . . . I am proud ofUFLAGS and I am excited as well as surprised by this event."

By mid-week before the tournament, there were 1061h teams registered from 22 c · ies for a total of 440 bowlers. The Mon­trose Sports Association bowlers regis­t~ red 28 teams for a whopping total of 112 pm poppers. "I'm most excited," said Mike Steiniger, president of the MSA Monday Night Bowling League, "because Houston has broken the tradition of (the home league) entering the largest delegation." The home league in this case is the Oak Lawn Bowling Association in Dallas which has organized the tournament. Steiniger commented, "We think they've done a stupendous job putting this together." This is only the second year for the IGBO tourney, but it has already expanded con siderably over last year. Most of the teamt. are from cities in the U.S., but the tourna· ment is international with the inclusion Toronto, Canada. Toronto, by the way, won first place in the tournament last year. The U.S. participation has expanded to include many more cities, including Honolulu. Early bird activities started yesterday (Thursday, May 27) for those people who just could not wait for the official start the next day. Today (Friday) is the annual IGBO meeting date where the representatives from the different cities bid for the loca­tion for next year's tournament. Perhaps the MSA should advertise for new players by saying, "Join a bowling league and see the world." Saturday and Sunday is when the tea me get down to the business of bowling. Sun· day night the awards banquet will take place at Dunphey'o. There will be over $8000 in prizee awarded, including the most coveted prize of first place in the "Team All Events" which carries a $1200 tag. In addition, there will be many door prizes.

The West End Stars and Rascals !for­merly the Houston HiO are both entered They have been drilling and practicing with each other every chance they have had. The tournament will be held in the U.S. Olympic facilities which were designed just for volleyball The last tournament in which the two teams played was the Austin Tournament which took place on May I. The MSA teams took first and third place out of a field of 12. There were two pools of six teams each. The West End Stars came out first in Pool A, with Autin'• Texas Sky taking second. In Pool B, Sunset from San Antonio took first, with second place honors going to the Houston Hit (now Rascals). The two first place teams played for the over-all first and second place in the tour­nament. The Stars won in two straight games. AB a matter of fact, the Stars were undefeated in the entire tournament. The Houston Hit and Texas Sky fought it out for third and fourth place. The Hit won the first game. Texas Sky took the second. The Hit came back to win the third game and third place in the tournament. The Austin Tournament was the f"irst &'BY volleyball tourney of the summer and a lot of new cities sent teams, including Fort Worth and New Orleans. San Anto­nio also sent two tea.ms. If the enthusiasm of the Austin get­together is any indication, there should be an active and friendly volleyball summer ahead. Pool Tournaments THIS WEEK"S GAMES Monday.

However, number three John Ryan challenged number two Lester Vela moved up the ladder by defeating him 64 and 6-2. David Rovicheaux, who had occupied the ninth rung, moved up twice in one week . First he challenged Rich Corder (7) and clobbered him 6-1, 6-0. Then he chal· lenged Rick DuPont (5) and eventually won. The scores were 3-6, 6-4, and 6-1. Robicheaux admitted,"! finally woke up." Michael Houston challenged Michael Green for the number 6 spot and Green defaulted, giving Houston a free trip to an upper rung. Another new name on the ladder is Don Smith who played everybody's favorite Rich Corder and thumped him 6-0, 6-0. Charlie Brown also got on the ladder by defeating Terry Rich 7·5, 6-2. There is some talk that the Challenge Ladder may be split into two divisions in order to take the pressure off of newer players. Besides the ladder compitition to deter­mine the players for the singles matches in the Texas Challenge Cup, round-robin doubles are coming up to dertermine the four doubles teams for the tournament.

June 30, 1982 I , _______________________ _ MAY 28, 1982 I MONTROSE VOICE 11 Neighborhood Fortress Europa in Montrose: Mayfair Mews 1 \ Photootory by Ed Martinez The biggest disadvantage to keeping bur­glars locked out is that it keeps the inhab­itanta locked in. In these days of high crime in the inner cities, frequent burglar­ies and constant publicity about them, most people overlook that fact when they decide to go out and buy that expensive burglar alarm system or those bars and chains. It is a sad but inescapable fact of mod· em life in large American cities that bur­glaries are frequent and psychologically damaging. The other obvious fact about this i1 that burglars only steal from the well-off. After all, what can they steal from the poor? So being financially secure is not an unmixed blessing. Mayfair Mews, an 11-home community on Richmond between Yoakum and Mt. Vernon, addresses this problem directly and successfully. High iron gates permit viewers to see in as well as those inside to see out, while at the same time admitting only those who belong. Soaring greenhouse windows permit large viataa to be seen from inside without tempting would be felons to enter and help themselves to the contents of these homes. State of the art, highly computerized burglar alarms make this one of the moat secure, as well as one of the smallest com· munities in Houston. But what does alt this expensive gadgetry and careful design protect? Among other things, some of the most expensive condominiums in Houston. Priced from $340,000 to $400,000, these 11 Montrose condos obviously rank among the moat expensive in town. Lacking the panache of the high rise condos in Her· man Park or the freeway chic of those in Montrose Art will return next week Greenway Plaza, these dwellings have to make it on their own exclusivity, a special kind of snob appeal unlike that of other, larger developments. Make it they do, however, in spades. The quality of the workmanship and materi­als, the look of lasting design and unique architectural flourishes are everywhere in evidence. Floors in the public rooms have the warm, burnished glow of carefuJly selected hardwoods. Appliances and work areas in the kitchens speak of attention to the concerns of gourmet cooks. Bedrooms are plush and sybaritic, almost downright hedonistic. Decks, balconies, and galleries appear magically as oneglancea about the interiors. But the feel, the attitude that_ disfo>­guishes these homes from the ordinary is the clever use of different elevations throughout. Although each one of the.se 11 units haa a different floor plan, the unify­ing feel is that of light and open areas achieved by putting different rooms on slightly d.iferent levels. This is subtle but effective, resulting in a sense of spacious­ness that belies what is obviously very limited square footage. Whether or not this development is financially successful is really beside the point, although considering the Houston real estate market. its success seems almost guaranteed. The point is that this development, planned and financed by international developers, was placed smack in the heart of Montrose, not in far Memorial nor even near River Oaks. The people behind this investment have gambled, if indeed it is a gamble, that those who can afford these homes want to live in and enjoy the liveliest, most enter· taining and livable part of the boomin_g~t city in America-Montrose. Proof agam! if proof is needed, that the arts, entertain­ment and cultural center of Houston is nowhere else but Montrose, Houston­town's HearUand.

This fund, the source of revenue for which ia one cent of the existing state tax 'On each package of cigarettes sold, has been in existence since 1979 and has been uaed to acquire many urban park areas, including three state parks: Eagle Moun· tain, Franklin Mountains Phase I and nearby Lake Houston. The fund will expire in August of 1982, and unleas the people of Texas show their support for it.a renewal this vital source of financing for urban park lands will no longer be available to us. The financial aid this Urban Park Fund currently provides is needed in Texas now more than ever. The discontinuation of the Land and Conservation Fund at the Fed· eral level placa tremendous pressure upon the individual states to provide fund­ing for their own parks. Texas can nse to this challenge by renewing the already highly successful Urban Park Fund. The renewal of this fund must receive tremendous grassroots support from Tex­ans acrose the state. We in the Houston area especially must vocalize our desire for a program through which much­need. ed green space in our rapidly develop. ing metropolis can be acquired. Now is the time for us all to contact those candidates for state office whom we will support in the fall election and let them know that we are concerned about providing for future recreational areas. Election time needs to bea time of public input. Let our voices be heard: Texans sup. port the renewal of the Texas Local Parks, Recreation and Open Space Fund!

I have been directed to relinquish two of my duties aa Assistant Director of Spe-cial Projects .. . . 1. My reponsibilities as Committee Chairman to handle the address labels for all MSA publications, which include the MSA Newsletter and Mr. Reagan's Letters & Comments monthly MSA Newsletter, and 2. My forthcoming Gay Pride Week Chairman's responsibility in providing the previously eatablished Float Commit­tee the opportunity to attend the scheduled appointment with parades, etc., this past Saturday, May 15, to decide u;>on a partic­ular design for the MSA GPW float. I recognize that my lover, my peers, cer­tain MSA board members and subgroup representatives are not in harmony with my decision to resign, and addition~y, with Gay Pride Week approachmg shortly, I do not relish the prem"!!itated exposure 88 being an example of Apart FROM, not a part OF." But, I, and no one else, have been and will remain to be, responsible for my own self pride. I base my decision to rc;sign primarily upon (the facts that my resigna­tion was) proposed to me through tele­phone communication (and by) one board member of the MSA board of directors without regard to the total MSA board consensus. . Both of the . .. relinquishments of duties were made prior to and without regard to proof, timely or otherwise, a~ to (the final results of my) originally assigned duties. While I do not wish one MSA member to foresee the future of MSA's growth and direction, I can foresee that my duties 88 Assistant Director ofMSA have been com­promised, to Say the least, and th8:t ! ~­not and will not have my respons1b1bties in the immediate future, such as the MSA GPW float and December's 2nd Annual MSA Variety Show, be condescended to, or compromised by this sole person in o~r administration without direct proven dis­regard for my responsibilities. I would JJ~e to say ~at I have the utmost respect for this organization and believe that national achievement and recognition is inevitable in our future because of present membership and con· tinued growth through competitive sporta­like participation from both sexes of our co"i::~~::in my poBition as Secretary of the Thursday night MSA Eddie Chavez Mixed Bowling League, where my respon· sibilities were respected and acknowl­edged by my re-election, but regretfully resign as · :..sistant Director of Special Projects for MSA corporate, where my best wasn't good enough. Government computers drafted in search for evaders The government has unleashed its long­awaited computer war against draft resis­ters, according to Computerworld magazine. In May, the selective service system began searching social security fil~s for the estimated half-million who've faded to register for the draft. _In addition, _the government says it will begm s1m1lar inspections of high school graduation li~t.e and various other files, such as state dnv­er's license records. Those computer searches-made legal by a special act of Congre88-are only the first step. Once the list is complete, it will be turned over to the I ntemal Revenue Ser­vice to obtain the addresses of those who've failed to sign up. By mid·summer, the ~elective ~ervi~ says it will be mailing notices to all tdenti· tied non·registrants.

He had .Played the title role in Oliver, on and off since he had been nine. All of a sudden, he was too old to do it anymore. It was quite a blow. Ddrren loved the theater. He loved to sing and act. He even loved to audition "My parents were heaven "said Darren· "and didn't mind, and took me places." ' However, Luling, Texas, where Darren lived. was not exactly the center of the theatrical universe. Once he left the hallowed halls of high school, he entered the consecrated corri­dc;> rs of college. Majoring in trombone and piano, he attended Sam Houston University. While still in college, he took a trip to New York where he saw Houston Grand Opera's production of Hello.Dolly. "I was very impressed.." Not long after, someone with connec­tions at the Houston Grand Opera came to Sam Houston to do a recital and Darren inquired. about working with the chorus. A few days later, he got a letter telJing him about the auditions. Since he was not a voice major, he had not really had much training, but that did not deter him from eagerly scurrying to Houston for the auditions. "I sang a little art song and 'Bright is the Ring of Words.' He was accepted much to his relief. Then a new chorusmaster was hired and he had to. go through the whole thing agam. Ag am, he passed the test of tonsils. So, he moved to Montrose, entered the University of Houston, and started study­ing voice with Elena Nikoladi. He also watched all the great singers that worked with the opera-and learned from watching. "The careful young singer knows what his limitations are," said the careful young Darren. But limited the young man is not. He brings a sense of truth and humanity to his individual chorus characters. "There's nothing to create your character but you. You have to see yourself as this peasant who lives on such and such street." Besides his opera work, Darren appears in local theater productions. "I want to be on the stage. Period. I really love it." His favorite characters in opera are the evil villains or the bit parts where a person can just appear, be brilliant and leave in a burst of glory. Bit parts in opera are known as campramario. Hie first season with Houston Grand Opera may not have been filled with per· aonal glory, but it was a season of hard work and good fun. Some of it inadvertent. One of the operas that they did that year waa Norma, which featured. two very fam­ous divas, Reneta Scotto and Tatiana Troyanos. Aa Darren describes it, his chorus char· acter waa some sort of spear-carrying druid. The first time that he had on his costume, the hood twisted around ao that his right eye waa looking out of the left eyehole of his hood. He walked up to a woman backstage and said, "Would you hold my spear. My hood is crooked "Then he handed her the opear and fixed the hood. When he could see properly, he noticed the stunned look on the woman's face. Then he noticed the other members of the chorus stifling laughter. He walked over to a group of singers and one of them told him, '4Do you realize that you juat asked Tatiana Troyanos to hold your spear?" Another time, he was in the chorus of Der Roaen Kavalier. He was suppoaed to come on with two other chorus members, holding lighted tapers, which they touched to candelabra. At the 1ame time, they were to unobtrusively push buttons that would tum on the lights that actualJy were the supposed candle&. Well, one night when they pushed the secret buttons, nothing happened. They pushed again. Nothing. Pretty soon they were frantically punching the buttons, but to no avail. They started to giggle. The audience started to laugh. Finally, they walked off the stage with their lighted tap­ers, leaving the candelabra dark. Soon, Darren will be storing up memo­ries of a different sort. Darren Woods to the left of Karen Huffstodt in "'lhe Merry Widow," 1982. Darren Woods to the right of Leigh Munro in "The Student Prince," 1981. Darrt>n Woods somewhere in the crou.•d around Timothy Nolan in "Willie Stark," 1980 Montrose Live He auditioned for and was accepted by the Santa Fe Opera Company for their Appretice Artists program. Apporoxi· mately 1600 hopefuls from 20 different cities tried out for 40 spots. There were only two tenor roles. Darren got half of them. So, now Darren will get to do the old campramario bit in Santa Fe, including the role of Don Couzio in The Marriage of Figaro and the Barber in a world premiere work by George Roch berg titled The Con(•· dence Man. He will play other small parts and understudy some more major roles. One thing that he will miss is the upcom· ing auditions for the chorus on June 19 and 20. Darren explained that the way the auditions are set up a member of the cho­rus sits in the audience as well as chorus master Conolt:>y Ballard, musical director John DeMain and music and production administrator Pat Hauk. "It's supposed to be to make sure that the auditions' are run equitably. but what it does is it set.a people at ease, offers encouragement." Darren Woods has been a friendly face in the auditorium for the past two years. The hardest thing that a person might be asked to do (besides relax) is to sight read a bit from an upcoming opera. Generally, people are asked to prepare three songs. They usually do one or two. People who audition usually have other jobs, some are students eome are house­wives. This year the chorus is expanding. Darren admitted with a smile that he wished the better pay and greater chorus emphasis had occured before he decided to leave.

It is a good choice. It may not be a monumental piece of theater, but it is written honestly and with a sense of wit and warmth. It also captures the essence of people that we can remember as having seen in our own lives. The plot is minimal, with the emphasis instead on the interrelation and revela· tions of three women as they fold laundry and drink bourbon on a hot west Texas afternoon in a town called Maynard in 1973. Claire Hart-Palumbo plays the part of Elizabeth Caulder, the gent1e, loving and possibly deserted wife of a Viet Nam vete­ran, with poignant depth and a real sense of support for her fellows actors.

A fable from San Francisco By Randy Alfred When San Francisco returned to electing some of its city-and~unty supervisors by district in 1983, the new Fifth District was even gayer than its 1977-80 predecessor had been. For one thing, a much greater percentage of it.a reeidentll were of the homosexual persuasion. For another, four supervisors were still elected at large, so each district included on~eenventh of the city's population rather than onereleventh of it. Some creative line-drawing caused a very large proportion of the fabled city's lesbians and gay men to fall within the boundaries of the Fifth District. NGL's: Almost immediately, an old dilemma returned. The openly gay representative of a predominantly gay district IOOn acquired the status of a national gay leader. Now that might be just fine and dandy for media people prowling for a likely spokesperson. But it irritated the hell out of gay people in other cities who had no part in choosing this NGL. In fact, it also irked gay people living in the other six districta of San Francisco itself. Well, the non-San Franciscans and the non-District Fivers did try to have some say: they attended a lot of fundraiaera and contributed a lot of money and stuff like that. Needless to say, this outside influence annoyed many of District Five's voters, especially its straight and gay citizens alike felt their local super­visor was elected to represent their neighborhood interests-the ratio­nale of district elections, after all-and not the national interests of some of the district's residents. Urbi Et Orbi: Did I say national interests? By then the Castro neighbor­hood was not merely a national, but an international, center of gay life, culture, and politics. Tourists-some said pilgrims, even at that early stage-came visiting from all over the world. And gay people around the glohe looked to the Castro for leadership and inspiration. just as Cathol­ie1 look to Rome though few of them live there. In fact, there was growing realization that being gay was much like being the adherent of any other religion. For years. the previously estab­lished religions had persecuted U8 on often spurious theological grounds. Well, the reasoning went, if religion opoposed us, then surely we must be some sort of anti-cult. As this outlook gained credence in the tempestuous early '80s, gay leaders thought small at first. They talked of tax benefits and First Amendment protections. "Freedon from religion!" was their cry. The greater implications soon dawned on them. The relilgion problem and the NGL problem could be solved in one fell swoop. Cr0Hin1 the Rubicon: And so, on Gay Freedom Day in 1984, the Castro City State became an independent republic within the City and County of San Francisco, the State of California, and the United States of America. It stretched from South of Market to Twin Peak.a, and from Pacific Heights to Dolores Heights. Even when Oregon and northern Cahfornia seceded from the United States in 1989 to form the nation of Pacifica, the Castro retained its enclave status. In fact, the Pacifican. constitution encouraged local autonomy. At first, two Co-Popee, one a gay man and one a lesbian, ruled the world's gaydom from the enclave. A eingle. co-sexual College of Lavend­ers (so named after the color of their broad-rimmed hats) elected them. The Lavenden repre.ented gay and le.bian communitiee around the world. They gathered in the Holy City by the western sea only on great ceremonial occasions. Theae, however were numerous: the naming of new Co-Popes, the creation of new Lavendera, coronations, funerals, and the nine High Holy Days: Gay Freedom Day, Hallowe'en, the Birthday of Harvey Milk (thefiret Fifth DiatrictSupervieor and NGL), Candlefeot (the day of his martyrdom), White Night (commemorating the riots which ocurred when Milk's slayer W81 dealt a lenient sentence), Oscartide (the anniversary of St. Oscar Wilde's 1882 visit to San Francisco), the Memo­rial Day Tricycle Race, the Castro Street Fair, and Grace Jones' Birthday. Half a hundred of the world'e finest decorators and designers remo­deled the Castro Theater into a baeilica, with chapels dedicated to the various cuJts of leather, denim, clone, cowboy, disco, swish, Sappho, diesel, and political correctness. The Co-Popee appeared on the balcony at each major festival as well as on sunny weekend afternoons. Order and Disorder: Religiou1 orders proliferated. The pioneering Sia­ten of Perpetual Indulgence inspired the Siaters of Impenetrable Reg­fulgnece, the Sister of Chaos. the Order of Dilorder, and the Friends of Cala Market. Well, it was too good too last. In 1990, the Lesbian separatist Lavenders left the Castro and started a new collectivist republic in :Sorth Oakland and Berkeley. Though rumored to be thriving, that hermit state has not been officially heard from since. The disproportionate male influence remaining in the Castro so tho­roughly overwhelmed the noMeparatitlt Jmbians that. in 1991, they joined the semi-autonomous Feminist Free State that had been estab­lished over the hill in Noe Valley 80me two years before. The result, of course, waa that the Castro became the exclusive pro­vince of gay men. and boy1 will be boys. The remaining Pope, Cleve III, immediately renamed the Castro Fair, The Feast of the Mokstrom. Ever since, it baa been the religious obligation of every gay man, at leaat once in his lifetime, to make the pilgrimage to the Castro in the Holy City of San Francisco. There, the pious deecend the hills and join the swirling m888e8 to circle seven times seven timee around the four comers of 18th and Castro stret"ts chanting the m0&t sacred mantra: "So many men, so little time.". •1982 Randy Alfred. •II nghts reserved :.!:.!

May 28. through Friday •v•nmg, June 4. 1982 ARIES-Leauing your sign this week: Venus, Sunday after­noon. You're about to be captivated, swept away, blown away, moved in a way that you'll never forget. The pleasure is the joy that comes from a sense of renewal. The danger is in eventual obsession. TAURUS-Entering your sign this week: Venus, Sunday after­noon. Being the center of some heavy attention could bring you a week of strong emotional highs and lows. You'll be able to stand your ground in any serious confrontation. Remember that expec­tation breeds forgetfulness, and you'll be O.K. GEMINI-In your sign all week: tM Sun and Mercury. U your tempatation to be totally bizarre this week doesn't get out of hand, this could be a time to use your ability to organize and act on whatever is necessary. Forget about shock va1ue and find the satisfaction that comes from a job well done. CANCER-The need for protection can bring unexpected result.a. Don't let anyone strona-ann you into doing something that you really don't want to do. Someone with authority oou1d sway you into a strange direction. On the brighter side, you may hear from someone whom you've been missing. LEO-Leaving your sign this week: The Moon, late Friday eve­ning. Ready, willing and able. The only thing that might steer you off course this week could be an overly important view of yourself. When everything says "go" and everyone says "yes," this could be a tricky maneuver. VIRGO-Passing though your aign this week: The Moon, from late Friday evening to early Monday morning. You're on another wavelength this week, so don't feel too bad when you're misunder­stood. When you're serious, friends think you're silly; and when you feel sil1y, it looks like you're coming on strong. Laugh at the absurdities. LIBRA-Jn your sign all week: Mars, Saturn and Pluto. Passing through this week: The Moon. from Monday morning to Wednes­day afternoon. At work, you're a dynamo. New ideas and ways of doing things make you feel like the leader of the pack. At home, though, there's a split that needs mending. Don't take business home with you. Remember how to be romantic. SCORPIO-Jn your sign all week: Jupiter. Entering your sign thi• week: The Moon, Wedneaday afternoon (June 2). Women confuse you this week. The difference between you and an impor­tant woman in your life may seem irreconcilable, but by the same token, the man in your life who's closest inspires and excites you. SAGITTARIUS-Jn your sign all Wttk: Uranus and Neptune. You're looking so stylish and so sexy that if you don't live in a large city, you ought to get to one. Th.is is the week to let the show-off in you strut his stuff. Enjoy the eame of flaunting. Have fun! CAPRICORN-This might-makes-right attitude of yours has got to go. You might have had your share of frustrations and disappointmenta these pastfewdays, but blind pushing and shov­ing won'tchange anything. Try a little tenderness, Macho Person. You can do it. AQUARIUS-Get out the crystal ball. Your abilities and talents seem almost magical. Concentrate on your hunches and act on them. Put on your cape and charm a snake. You 're something else! PISCES-Feels like turning point time, but no matter how much you're tempted to make a radical change in your life, don't. The need for a new direction might be there, but being erratic and impulsive about major life decisions just isn't smart. •1982 St~N F•tu,_ Syndicate . . LastWord It ain't no swte By Henry McClurg I wish to discuss a serious subject today. Real serious. No, not the Falklands. Not the President. Not even the Houston police. I'm going to talk today about people with those little private poet office boxes who print letterheads and business cards referring to that box aa a "suite." You've seen them. Galapalogapos Enterprises, "Suite 7777," such and such a street, Houston. All that "Suite 7777" really is is a few-dollars-a-month little fl' by fl' by lfl' hole! Hardly a suite. I'd just like to see them conduct business in one of those little things. The reason this bothers me is because it's an attempt to deceive. They're trying to make you think they're a bigger • company than they really are. And if they're not honest about this, they may not be honest about other aspects of their business. I think those little boxes are great. They're convenient. You can check your mail 24 hours. They'll even accept UPS deliveries, which the U.S. Post Office won't do. But come on folks. It ain't no "suite." It's a box! Sunday: GPC Block Walk, starting 2:30 Everyone will be here, Including Sandra Floyd (Kindred Spirits' contestant for Ms. National Reno Gay ROdeo Texas '82) and the Montrose Symphonic Band, and the Montrose Country Cloggers Also Sunday: 4pm Bffr Bu1t, as usual Monday: Pool Toumament with Leather Night Tuesday: Movie Night, "Barbarella" in Cinenmascope 1022 Westheimer, naturally (Thanks for your patience while we were closed. The shopping lanes will be open again at Mary's this weekend, we hope.)
