A total of nine garages in Montrose had been set on fire in a 90-minute spree, it was reported. Police were reported to have said that Higgins is suspected of going from one location to another on his 10- speed bike. Arson investigaor H.M. Atchison said he arrested Higgins after he had made a statement about all of the fires, the newspaper reported. Atchison was quoted: "He said he had no reasons. He said he was coming back home on Kipling and he just felt like setting a fire." "He said he went over and set a garage fire, and then he woke a woman up and took a garden hose and was extin­guishing the fire when the firefighters arrived." Atchison said he spotted Higgins setting the last fire when he drove around the corner of Harold and Kip- 1 in g, the newspaper reported. Two of the fires were at occupied gararge apart­ments which had to be evac­uated. Two were on Harold and the others on Kipling from the 1400 to 1800 blocks. Four more fires were reported earlier in the area, but the supsect denied set­ting them, Atchison said, according to the newspaper. Show nets $5000 toward Montrose Clinic· "Mother Ruth's Zap Clap Revue" May 5 at Babylon, 300 Westheimer, netted about $5000 from the 500 to 600 people presen~, said Ruth Ravas a screenmg cor­rdinatoor ~f the City of Houston Health Department. A goal of $84,000 had been set to establish the Montrose Clinic and the total raised following the show exceeded $20,000, she said. Although no location had been selected, Ravas said it would be "as near to Mon­trose and Westheimer as possible." The planned purpose of the clinic is to diagnose and treat sexually-transmitted diseases. The City of Houston Health Dept.'s mobile van had been setting up fre­quently in Montrose and the May schedule included the Different Drum, 1732 West­heimer, on May 17. Addition­ally, venereal disease tests without the van were being conducted in gay clubs sev­eral times a month, and the May scheduled included May 8 at the Galleon, 2303 Richmond; May 13 at Mid­towne Spa, 3100 Fannin; May 16 at Club Baths, 2205 Fannin; May 23 at Mary's, 1022 Westheimer; and May 27 at the Copa, 2631 Richmond. The Zap Calp Revue was staged, directed and choreo­graphed by Danny Villa of the Different Drum and feat­uring "the hot, healthy bar­tenders of Montrose." Most gay clubs were represented. "The reason we are here, of course is to raise money for the Montrose Clinic .... The old 'My-uncle's-got-a­barn- and-why-don't-we-put­on- a-show' syndrome applies," Villa said. Ravas said plans were in the works to repeat the show. "Some of those bartenders were stage fright at first, but once they heard the applause, some were ready for a stage career," Ravas said. "They can't wait to do it again." Harring­ton says he'll sue the city over lost job Lee Harrington,· president the Gay Political Caucus, said May 6 that he would be announcing through a news conference a few days later that he is suing the City of Houston, the Greater Hous­ton Convention and Visitors Council and the council's general manager over his fir­ing from the council last year. Harrington said he was fired when he was elected president of GPC June 18, 1980. The Convention and Vis­itors Council is a tax­supported institution. Harrington said he was fired because of his political activity on his own time. He said the Houston City Coun- Ben Sargent WEU,~mWE l\N> 10 'BER" !Hl( THEM~N>a~ INl'IWMAN' f)g~NPUM--· ,f9 ~ iExAs mr Montrose News cil twice froze the Conven­tion and Visitors Council's half-million dollar quarterly appropriation because of his political activity. Since then, the Texas Employment Commission ruled in his favor, he said. Harrington said he would be announcing the filing of the suit on the steps of City Hall at 7:00 p.m. May 12, and he expected it to be a major story on the 10:00 p.m. news on Houston television sta­tions later that evening. Harrington said he would take the opportunity of the media attention to also announce two programs the Gay Political Caucus, the city largest gay political organziation, would be start­ing to undertake. One would be a task force to verify greivances from persons who feel they were fired or forced out of jobs because they were homosex­ual. If verification shows an employer was guilty of firing someone because of sexual orientation, protests would be staged at the business' location, he said. The other program, he added, would be taJ?ng it a step further by usmg eco­nomic boycotts by gay peo­ple of products and services at businesses who would not sign a non-discrimination policy document.

The Nation Gay Eagle Scout sues to get back in Boy Scouts LOS ANGELES-An Eagle Scout who was featured in a newspaper story on young gay men filed a $520,000 dis­crimination suit April 30 charging the Boy Scouts of America kicked him out because of his open homosexuality, UPI reported. Timothy Curran, 19, with the assistance of the Ameri­can Civil Liberties Union and the National Gay Task Force, filed the suit seeking $500,000 punitive damages and $20,000 actual damages against the Mt. Diablo Coun­cil of the Boy Scouts in the San Francisco Bay Area, the news service said. "What's ridiculous," Cur­ran was quoted in an inter· view, "is that the Boy Scouts are saying that because I am homosexual, I am immoral. I think that's absurd. I am not an immoral person." ACLU attorney Susan McGreivy said Curran, a journalism major at UCLA, was kicked out of the Boy Scouts after a series of arti­cles on young gay people in the Bay Area appeared last June in the Oakland Tribune-Eastbay Today, UPI said. The articles, which were accompanied by a photo­graph of Curran attending the Skyline High School senior prom with a male date, quoted his belief that going to the dance as an open homosexual was a "political statement," the news service reported. McGreivy was reported to have said that the Boy Scouts took an unconstitu· tional position that Curran was "per se immoral" because of his homosexuality. "Timothy has an out­standing track record as a young Scout," McGreivy was quoted. "He founded a Scout troop for the deaf in Oakland and was heartbroken when the Boy Scouts kicked him out and refused to allow him to attend the National Jambo­ree in Virginia." Dave Park, Boy Scout gen· era! counsel, said Curran had applied for re-registration as a Scout and was refused because ''he is an avowed homosexual," UPI reported. "We feel homosexuality and membership in scouting are not compatible," Park was quoted. "We feel we have the right to determine our own criteria for membership." Billie Jean King wins temporary restraining order barring publication of love letters LOS ANGELES-Tennis star Billie Jean King won a temporary restraining order May 5 barring her former lover, Marilyn Barnett, from publishing some 100 per· sonal letters written during their affair, AP said court PAGE 4 1 MONTROSE VOICE I MAY 8, 1981 records showed. King's lawyer's got the order after presenting affi. davits claiming Barnett had said she might sell the letters to the National Enquirer for $25,000, the news service said. AP said that in an affi· davit filed in Superior Court, King said she "wrote the let­ters to Barnett with the intent and understanding that they were and .would remain private and confidential." When the story first came to light, King was reported to have denied she had a les­bian relationship with Bar· nett, but later admitted it. Meanwhile, responding to the publicity given the dis­closure, E.R. Squibb Co. announced, according to the New York Daily News, that it was dropping King from its advertising but other companies who use King said they would be sticking with her. But Squibb advertising Director Kenneth Anderson was reported to have claimed the cancellation was not due to the discloser of King's lesbian affair. "Frankly, it was phased out because she was too strong a figure-she was overpowering the product. The controversy had nothing to do with our deci· sion," he was quot.ed as saying. King also promotes Nike athletic shoes, Yonex tennis rackets and a resin sub­stance called Power Grip, and there were no reports of any of these companies can­celling their arrangements with King. To the contrary, the presi· dent of U.S. Sports Equip­ment, the national distributors of Yonex, a Japenese tennis racket, was quoted as saying, "What she did is very typical of her open and candid personal­ity. She's of significant value to us and as an endorser of our products, and we're behind her." Avon, which sponsors two major women's tennis tour· naments, including one in Houston, was reported as saying they were "reviewing the situation cautiously. We would not be involved in anything that would hurt our image." News services said that in her affidavit on the letters between King and Barnett, King said: "At various times over the past two to three years. Barnett has told me • The Voice 708 W.

Barnett filed suit a week earlier seeking lifetime sup­port and title to a Malibu house owned by King and her husband, Larry, the news service said. Barnett was said to have been living there since the Kings purchased it in 1974. The Kings said her suit was prompted by their request that she move so the house could be sold, AP reported, adding that the Kings began eviction proceedings after the lawsuit was filed. The news service said that in an affidavit, a woman identified as Susan Cameron said Barnett told her within the last two yaers "that she had been offered $25,000 by the National Enquirer for the sale or ~u?­lication of letters from Bilhe Jean King to Marilyn Barnett." Professional golfer Nancy Lopez-Melton was reported to have said that she hoped King's actions would not affect other women athletes getting endorsei:ients but said detractors might would pounce on other women ath­letes because she had a homoeexual affair. "They will condemn all of us. I hope we (golfers) won't be included in this," she was quoted. Then she was reported to have added, "I accept every­body for what they are, eve­ryone has to do their own thing. I don't know her, but I admired her all the time I was growing up, and I still do. It took a tot of guts to do what she did. Gay Press Associa­tion formed DALLAS-Representatives of about three dozen gay publications met here May 2 and 3 to form the Gay Press Association, a news and bus­iness organization. The idea of the convention was that of Joe DeSabito, a gay. media marketing execu­tive in New York who was represented most of the gay publications to potential national advertisers through his Rivendell Mar­keting company. DeSabito was elected pres­ident of the association. The group heard a presen­tation from Radio Shack and the David Glenn Stan­ton Company of Pittsburg on creating a wired news net­work among the publications. , The idea interested most publications but no imme­diate decision was made. Several publications said the cost of the wired network was too great for them to handle at that time. Peter Frisch, publisher of The Advocate, gave a pres­entation on unifying into standard ad sizes to make a advertising package offer more attractive to national advertisers. The convention was held at the Melrose Hotel, located in the center of Dallas' gay ghetto, Oak Lawn. RETURN WITH IJS TO ...

Wilhe Nelson often had a hard lime making himself heard over the roar of the drunks. But he did, and he became something of a Texas institu· lion after a while - so much so that the rest of the coun­try began listening to what all those good ol' boys in Texas had been listening to. Now Willie is a nallonal institution and the drunks shut up when be sings. "It's scary, things are gom' so well," muses Willie. "I'm singin' and actin'. I don't work for a living." Yes, Willie is a platinum success, meaning his records usually sell at least a million copies. He bas one out for Columbia now called "Some­where Over the Rainbow." And if it doesn't sell a mil­lion copies it will be because Americans have run out of money. This is the second LP 10 which Willie bas indulged hunself by digging out some of the great standards of the past and giving them that special Nelson treatment. If you remembers his "Star· dust" album, you'll recall how fine that treatment is. In addition to "Rainbow" on the current LP, Willie sings such as "Mona Lisa," "Who's Sorry Now?" "Exact­ly Like You." and "I'm Con· fessin'" ERIC CLAPTON - Anoth­er Ticket (RSO) - If Clapton keeps on performing like this, he'll not only be a survi­vor of the 1970s but also of the 1980s. This is a very strong Clapton album, fresh, original, and with superb musical backup. Eric ranges all over the place, from rock to country. First class all the way. SMOKEY ROBINSON - Bemg With You (Tamla) - Smokey "' another long-dis-tance performer (some 20 years now) who seems to get better with the years. He has a special way with a lyric that has endeared him to millions of listeners. That cool, mellow tradition goes on. LIVE UNDER THE SKY - (CBS Mastersound Series) - This is a digital, two-record album recorded in Tokyo in 1979 during a performance by Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, Ron Carter and Wayne Shorter. Digital is definitely the wave of future because of superior sound reproduc­tion. The jazz quintet never sounded better than this. SISTER SLEDGE - All American Girls (Cotillion­Atlantic) - One of the best quartets of this era Jays down another silky-smooth. highly rhythmic 8electton of songs. "We are still family," says Sister Sledge, and that is no exaggeration. Like their lead song also says, they're also "All American Girls."

SamanthaReads Your Stars If you were born thl1 week: Keep your quarters jiggling in your pockets, and tempting opportunities may pay off. When opportun· ity calls, cat.ch it on the first wink. Later, the moon is up to tricks, perhaps some of them as exciting as the one you had last week. ARIES: You could be plagued by foot-in-mouth disease in weekend ahead if you're not careful. Avoid being too critical, and try to be tactful instead of blunt. Days include financial news and an unexpected errand or two. TAURUS: Weekend tip-toes in with secrets. Don't believe every­thing you hear, even if it is from a Hunk. Examine your material and personal priorities thoroughly; you may need to make a few switches. (That's "switches," not "swishes.") Days end in a flurry, a frazzle and a flip . GlMINI: You've been burning the candle at both ends again. Watch it, or your swash may buckle, Give yourself a present and get in some well-deserved R&R Then you'll be ready when latter days bring lots of excitement. MOONCHILD: Your weekend may hold tricky potholes and dis­guised pitfalle. Uee of good judgment ie important, and you should take nothing for granted. Later, look for an instant replay. Some weekends are like tht£t. LIO: Keep an eye on a new person in your life. This one will assume greater and greater impartance as time goes on. Later, you may be invited to come as your are. VIRGO: Past experiences can help you realize that a terrible tor­nado is just a littl ol' tempest in a teapot. Stand firm; you don't have to head for the root cellar! However, you could see a riptide of emotions. LIBRA: Fulfill a certain responsibility and you'll receive an unex­pected bonus. Intricate social maneuvering& require perception to figure out. Not a hard job for you. Later, good vibes carry you through the weekend. SCORPIO: Your ESP may be fairly strong, even if you just call it "hunches." You sometimes go to extremes in being either too trusting or too skeptical. You are often guided more by your emo­tione than by logic, although your mind is definitely one of the best there is. SAGITIUIUS: You sometimes butt your head against stonewalls. And you may be doing just that this weekend, at a certain prospect. CAPllCORH: Objectivity is important this weekend, in all your affairs of the heart. Your subjective impre88ions are too likely to be colored. Step back and be pleasantly surprised. AQUARIUSr Love makes a request of you and, if you 're as smart as I suspect, you'll answer affirmatively. Your current fantasy may be in for a shock treatment PISCESr Confusing news arrives; rely on your common sense to help straighten it out. Then, don't be put off by one who doesn't seem to care which way the wind blows-that's all a facade. Days close happily. Trend Gay political strength to continue growing "Trend" is column that each issue gives you a final thought to ponder. This column is a joint effort by the etaff ofthe VOICE. A prediction: Ronald Reagan, if he survives the full four years in office, will decide not to seek re­election. Despite four years of conservative govern­ment, the country, it will be obvious, will be more liberal-socially-than ever. Despite the fact that the Reagan administration will have performed miracles with the American economy people will be climbing all over each other (sU:tement borrowed from author Gore Vidal) to vote Democratic-perhaps Kennedy in the national Presidential election. There will be an unsuccessful draft.Carter movement. Democrats will also do well on the local level, but not as they will in national elections. Will gay people stay politically organized over the next few years? Yes, more so than ever, in the major cities. In San Francisco, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York and Seattle, it will be impossible to win a city-wide election if your opponent has the unified endorsement of the local gay political groups. Also in Washington, Miami and Philadelphia, gay political power will be strong, but reactionary forces making gay people an issue will still be able to win some elections in those cities.
