The persons were Terry Harris, Ed Jamail, Don Luna, Gary Grant, Mike Wil­son, Charles Botts, Debra Danburg, Sue Lovell and Jerry Mayes. These persons will sift through questions submitted by the membership to compile questionaires for candidates in the fall elections in order to conduct the screening process for GPC candidate endorsement. Norman Guttman, GPC treasurer, pres­ented a report on monthly operating expenses of GPC and on the Summit rally deficit. GPC lost approximately $20,000 on the 1982 celebration but, Guttman said, next year "there will be a lot more suppor· tt'rs and a lot less doubters" regarding the success of the venture. Guttman said that this year was a learn· ing experience for the caucus and that next year they would begin planning ear­lier, know how to trim comers and avoid unnecessary novice-type spending. He presented the operating budget to the membership to show "we have one of the lowest in the city" and that operating expenses had not increased in the past year. Total monthly expense is $1216 with the largest expenditures being secretarial help at $195, office rental of$190, meeting room rental $142 and telephone bill of an average of $170. Printing and postage (newsletter) accounted for $169 in expenses per month. Guttman received a round of applause for his efforts in accurate recordkeeping for GPC. "We all work eight hours a day, or at least we hope we do, we all have private lives, or at least we hope we do," said Bagneris. "All our work is volunteer and these people deserve recognition for their herd work." Summit expenses are still be totalled, they said, but the current estimate puts: the amount at $61,000. Some $37,000 was taken in and after expenses, the deficit is near $20,000, Guttman said. No money will be spent until all loans are repaid, he said, so all committees are presently operating on a zero budget for their activities. "That's why it's so impor­tant for our special project.a not only to break even, but to make money," he stated. The Outreach Committee reported that it will be having receptions soliciting new members from out.s:ide the loop in the near future. The first is planned for July 31 in a private home. Both Councilmen Greanias and Goodner have confirmed attendance, they said. The Caucus is planning a fundra'iser for its part of maintaining the gay lobbying effort in Austin, which recently was very active in defeating the recriminalization of sodomy in bill 21.38. The fundraiser is tentatively planned for Aug. 9 at the Men­dian Hotel. A special reception for women soliciting more women for caucus membership is planned for this Saturday at the Swim Club 7:00-9:00 p.m. It is a cooperative effort of GPC, NOW, Houston Area Women's Center and Choices. Neil Tannahill was designated as parli­amentarian beginning at the next meet­ing, because a great deal of the meeting was spent bickering over proper proce­dure. Gregg Russell introduced the Domestic Privacy in Employment Ordinance he has been working on and asked forit.s:endorse­ment by GPC, if not in the proposed actual wording, et least for the concept of the proposed ordinance. Essentially, the ordinance would add the words marital status and sexual orien­tation to the list of nondiscriminatory categories in housing and employment for city employment and firms with which the city would do business. "l move that the ordinance be endorsed by the GPC and included as an agenda item for future con­sideration and future work by the caucus,'' he said "I am saying that this is an item that needs to be discussed," said Russell. "ACLU and CHE have endorsed it. I'm not suggesting that we take it before the council next week, or even next year, but it is something that needs to be considered." Russell said he views the substance of the ordinance as basic to securing gay rights in the law. Danburg, a state representative, said that bringing up such an ordinance now would allow it to become a "political foot­ball" and that the GPC should wait and see what the new council is going to look like before backing the ordinance. After much debate and parliamentary antics, the ordinance was approved by changing the wording to "referred" instead of "endorsed." The proposed ordinance will now be referred as an agenda item for future study by the GPC. After three and one half hours, the meet· ing adjourned. Moralists Want Quarantine Australian conservatives are demanding a quarantine on homosexuals returning to Australia from the U.S., reporta UPI. That country's first death from AIDS occurred in July. One group, led by the Rev. Fred Nile, head of the Festival of Light, a conserva­tive moral vigilance group, is demanding that all returning gay people be quaran· tined, and hospitals are gearing up for strict controls for diagnosis and treatment of AIDS victim• As many as five men have been con­firmed and some 15 more are suspected of having the disease in Australia, according to the report. All the men were said to have had sexual relations with Americans. Australia's first victim, a 43-year-old man died in Melbourne's Prince Henry Hospital. The name was withheld, and few details were given, but it was known that the man had lived in the U.S. and became sick while visiting Melbourne. Montrose Mouth Cookoff was a treat Well folks, we outdid ourselves last wee­kend. Our First Annual Montrose Voice Gourmet Cookoff was a resounding suc­cess.

JULY 22, 1983 I MONTROSE VOICE 5 The Congressman Who Declared He's Gay :~n~:!\,!!8~uhin,ion Bureau Rep. Gerry Studds paced in the well of the House, the small open space on the floor between congressmen's desks and the podium. The chamber was nearly empty, but those who were present had come to hear Studds. Rep. William Dannemeyer (R·CA) as conservative as Studds is lib· eral, held the podium to talk about an agri· culture bill. For well over an hour it had been clear that Studds planned on making a remar­kable statement. He already had been identified as having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male page ten years ago. It was announced at a press confer­ence of the House ethics committee, and word quickly circulated when Studds asked to speak on a "special order" at the close of regular House business. In the press galleries, copies of Studd's statement already were circulating, already working its way through compu­ter terminals to the wire services, televi­sion news centers and newspapers and news magazines. Perhaps a dozen, per­haps 15 reporters sat at the long tables perched above the Speaker's Chair to actu· ally watch Studds, a man most admired for his political tenacity, deliver his state­ment. In the public galleries, a troop of girl's school visitors, neatly uniformed, had just arrived for the 15-minute view of House action visitors are entitled to watch. Studds was not visible on the floor when most Washington observers arrived Other members of the congress could be seen talking with each other in subdued tones, the expressions on their face clearly indicating a friend was in trouble. For su<"h a small gathering, there was consid - Montrose Voice The Newapaper ol Montrose Published every Friday 3317 Montrose Boulevard #306 Houston, TX 77006 Phone (713) 529-8490 Contents copynght• 1983 Office hours: 10am-5:30pm HenryMcClurg publ1•h.,1«1•t0f AcelClark gr•pllru SonnyOaYIS eccovntmg Hollis Hood m•n•gm{l«l•IOf Eddie Chavez •porf•«lltOf Jon Cheetwood Joseph Lee contribullngwrlt•" Bob Jones.

When Studde appeared in view on the floor, he didn't stop to talk with many of his colleagues. His eyes recognized them, took them in, but he went to the well, pac· ing almost like a fighter ready to enter a ring. For Studds, given to spontaeous out­bursts on issues that engage him, known for a quick repartee, it was a rare demon· stration of unease. Then House Speaker Tip O'Neill moved from the side aisle up to the Speaker's Chair, taking back the gavel normally held up by junior congressman dunng slow moments of House deliberations. His appearance was both a signal of action important to the House, and a sign of cour­tesy to his fellow Ma88achusetts Demo· crat. Dannemeyer announced he was yielding time to the gentleman from Mas­sachusetts, Mr. Studds. "All members of Congress must cope with the challenge of initiating and main­taining a career in public office," Studds began, reading from his paper, hi~ w.eight leaning on one leg. The vast maJonty of House seats, where Studds stared ahead, were empty. Then he straightened his pos­ture, took stride with hie words, and in the strong, dramatic cadence that he has a particular gift for, continued, "It is not a simple task for any of us. to meet ~de­quately the obligations of either pubhc or private life, let alone both-, But these cha!· lenges are made substantially more com­plex when one is, as am I, both an elected public official and gay." Studds' voice was firm, but did not pause. His Hou~e coUeagues paid him respectful attention, except for Danne­meyer, who turned his head away to stare at a far wall. The visiting girl school stu­dents weren't quite sure they had heard correctly. "Did he say he was gay?': one girl asked ano.ther. "I though he said he was gay." Their tour guide was immobile. Not until Studds was well into the volun· tary nature of hie relationship with a page did the guide jump to her feet, her m~draa blazer ruffling, and her mouth formm~ a soundless "Oh!" The young men standing watch on the visitor's doors exchanged glances, their smiles not ones of mockery, and then turned back to watch Studds complete his statement. It was all over in quick order, and Studds strode quickly down the aisle and out the door. Several of hie colleagues reached to touch his arm, say a good word, and a half dozen strode down the aisle and out the door with him. The first congress­man to declare himself gay on the floor of the congress had finished making history. The rest of his statement said: "The e1!-ff of the Committee of Standards of Official Conduct has spent more than a year, and hundreds of thousands of dollars on an • ~~:!t~ili':u~.;,ni:.t~,:,~U:,db~sth~ investigation, the results of which were full House.

"Charlie" Holomon as art festival direc­tor for 1983. The association is the sponsor of the popular twice-a-year art festival returning this fall in the 100-llOOblocksofWesthei· mer. Holomon, a former Binningha~ , Ala., resident, has nine years of expenence as chief financial officer and property super­visor of a large realty company in that city. Her experience includes lease negoti­ations and working with the city officials. She has lived in Houston since 1981 and has worked as an accountexecutivewith a local advertising firm where she wa_s involved in design and account eupel"Vl­sion. Groves said that the new director is one in many new festival innovations planned fo~.[~~ve appointed a committee to study the distribution of the festival proceeds in order to make an announcement before October 15 and 16, when the fall festival will be held," he said. Although the festival was suspended for the spring showing this year, the 10-year-old art show has been the most popular two-day event in the city attracting thou­sands of persons to the 11 block area. In 1982, after years of lobbying, the city closed Westheimer from Bagby to Mont· rose to vehicle traffic during the festival. 6 MONTROSE VOICE I JULY 22, 1983 2327 Grant at Fairview-528-8342 Open 12pm-2am Every Day KRAZEE HOUR NITELY 9-10pm 75¢ Well Drinks & Beer KRAZEE TUESDAY 9pm-2am 75¢ Well Drinks & Beer HAPPY HOUR DAILY 12-7pm 75¢ Well Drinks & Beer A People's Place to RockeneRoll with your bartenders: Jack, Ronnie, Andy, Morrie, Daniel Patio Bar Open Weekends The office injection treatment of facial wrinkles and acne scars For information, call (713) 944-2551 AMERICAN MAKE READY AMERICAN MAKE READY WE WILL HELP YOU RESIDENTIAL SERVICES Painting Interior & exterior, dry wall, remodeling.

Gay Adventists Send Mail to Clergy Seventh-Day Adventist Kinship Interns tional, a religious organization of Seventh·Day Adventist gay people, has announced that it mailed "information packet.&" on homosexuality to a pilot group of about 700clergy in the fundamen­talist denomination. Sent free of charge, the packet is intended to help pastors understand homosexuality better and ultimately treat gay people in their congregations more compassionately, they said. Paraquat Too Potent Paraquat, the controversial herbicide sprayed on Mexican marijuana fields, may be more lethal than scientists had thought. The chemical, which is sprayed on 10 million acres of U.S. land each year, has, according to official estimates, been responsible for up to 1000 deaths around the world . But according to Science Digest, those are gross underestimates. The magazine says that in Trinidad alone, two people die from paraquat poisoning every month, and the death toll in Western Samoa is four times higher. Chevron, the U.S. lincen!-lee for para· quat, says the ehemiC'al is safe if handled properly. But the eompany is not in favor of using the poison to deter pot i;mokers.

Dallas Group Plans Its Own AIDS Research Montroee Voice OallH Bureau Two Dallas doctors and the Dallas AIDS Action Porject (DAAP) have joined forces to conduct their own research into the pos· eible cause of AlDS, according to a recent report in the Dallas Morning News. The article stated that 40 Dallas-area men have volunteered to donate blood for the study. The research will attempt to look for the presence or absence of a viral substance in the blood which may serve as a "marker" that may indicat.e AIDS. Dr. James Wheeler, a hematologist, and Dr. Kevin Murphey, a professor of infec­tious diseases at Southwestern Medical School, will conduct the research. Both docotrs are members of the DAAP. (The DAAP should not be confused with the AIDS Action Proiect of the Oak Lawn Counseling Center.) In a meeting of the DAAP July 14, Mur­phey stated that the exact nature of the researC'h could not be specified. Murphey elaborated that the grant proposal had not been completed. He said that the research idea was "extremely preliminary" and that he was not comfortable with discuss­ing the idea at the time. Murphey stated that his primary fear was due to the possi­bility of someone else taking the idea. Wheeler said that the scientific com· munity must review the research before it is presented to the lay public. The article quoted Wheeler,"! think this is very important research, but it's merely the first of many testa to be done looking for a marker, or if possible, a treatment or cure." The 20 blood donors have exhibited some of the early symptoms of AIDS, and will be compared to 20 who have no symp· tome serving as controls for the research, according to the newspaper. Haute Cuisine Now that airlines have done away with those eupersaver fares, they're dangling another lure; fancy food. As one air transport official puts it, reports USA Today, "People would rath~r have a price cut than a cut of beef, but tf they're not going to get one, they'll look for the other." That'• why Delta Airlines is offering more seafood to entice health-conscious travelers, American is tempting first-class passengers with quail eggs and smoked salmon, and others are cranking out steaks and stuffed trout. The fancy pie-in-the-sky is cheaper for the airlines than cut-rate fares. While ticket prices are jumping as much as $60, even the most lavish airlines spends an average of $6.50 per meal.

Nor have any of the gay churches provided an alternative for the young, homeleBB and hungry It seems that gay Christians are so busy criticizing anti-religious gays they have no criticism left for the anti-gay religious. "By their deeds you will know them.'' 'Let's Use Our Heads' From John S. Gibson, Jr. The gay press is Houston has given con­siderable apace to the religionists who have seen fit to express their anger at the presence or the American Gay Atheist float in the Gay Pride Parade. I am disap­pointed at them (religionists) for not hav­ing the honesty to admit that they attacked the float while it was on display in the parade, not only verbally, but physi­cally. There were moments when Mr. Don Sandeni'• own, personal continued exist­ence on thi.e planet aa a living organism seemed very much in doubt. It would seem of course, that honesty is a bit much to expect of a group of people who believe in an unseen, unphysical, unproven, unlikely organism (i.e. God) who dwtlls, well, not here, but not not here, but not there either. It is a known fact that the emotional, inarticulate feel them· eelv .. to be threatened by the rational­thoughful, and that they will blame their attacks on their victims. The process is called ''projection," and psychologists have known about it for the last 50 or 80 years or so. The Dominican Inquisitors certainly did not feel themselves responsi­ble for the Hugenota (or gays) who fueled their bonfireo; had they been questioned at the time, they would doubtless have blamed the peraons going up in smoke for "playing with fire." We have gone too far into the 20th cen­tury to continue to allow the ignorant. the unthinking and the psychotics to cow us merely because they are the ones with the spears or the lung-power. One wishes that people would learn to use their heads. 'Let's Burn the Atheists' From Rev. Lee Roy Moore Tho11e atheists are really nervy! Don't they know Jesus and God are going to punish them? They have committed the unfor­giveable ain of blaspheming the Holy Spirit I am gay and love Jesus. He, too, was a homosexual-he told he so in a vision and told me to become one of his prophets. I know those atheists should be decapi­tated or burned at the stake. I long for those good old days when we Christiane would still do this Thank you parade committee for doing your Chriatian duty by banning those infidels. 'What's All the Hoopla?' From j.inda Mcintyre What ia all the hoop-la concerning the American Gay Atheist float? I loved it! Why haa the community come down ao hard on them? Can't everyone see that they. the Atheiata, are only pointing out the fact that religion is our number one enemy? Historically, the church has been any­thing but virtuous, and humanitarianism is something that they have recently adopted since they know they cannot keep member& if they don't start "acting" nice. Nothing has been more oppressive upon women, kept the blacks as slaves, and killed and murdered gays since it began. Hooray for the Atheists! They are the truth-tellers. Letter from a Gay Ex-Baptist Minister From M V Mitchell. Jr., Ph.D. For those who love the Bible: When I was 22 years old, I became a licensed Baptist rninioter; and like all good Baptist minis­ters, I studied almost every word of the Holy Scriptures very carefully. Look what I found, after many years of study: "And it came to pass, when Dvid had made an end of speaking to Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of Daivd and he loved him as his own soul." This was a spiritual marriage to two men. After a time, Jonathan was killed in bat­tle. "And David lamented with this lamen­tation over Saul and over Jonathan his Son: "[ am distressed for you, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant you have been to me: your love was wonderful, passing the love of women." Theee words reveal to us that a physical, sexual relationship existed between these two men. Both men were married. David is well-remembered for committing adultery with Bathsheba. So David was a bi-sexual male. There is no other record of any rela­tionship of David with any man other than Jonathan. Jonathan was either bisexual, also or he was a married gay man. Now let us read what God, who knows all, as is always right, had to say about David, the man who loved another man: "God gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart." lt is qwte clear to any intelligent person that God does not always disapprove when two men love each other. I believe that God does not approve when a straight man forces another straight man, as in prison. But when one man is gay or bisex­ual, he may chose rightly a male partner. This is what I understand from the pas- Stanford Square TOWNHOMES 'ThC' twenty-four townhomt"s at Stanford Square afford the con\'enience of a near town locauon coupled with the serC'nity of a carefully-planned, secure ennronmt"nt, 'These one and two-bedroom traditional bnck studio homes are within minutes of the downtown business and cultural district, Greenway Plaza, the medical center and the speciality shops, g-alleries and fine restaumnts of the Montrose, museum and Ri\'er Oaks areas.

These passages may be found in I Samuel 18:1, II Samuel 1:17, 26 and Acts 13:22b in the Bible. There remain two things to consider: (1) What of Sodom and Gomorrha and (2) what of the writings thought to have been made by the Apostle Paul? Why was Sodom deslToyed? Because of its multitude of gay people? "This was the iniquity of Sodom: pride, fullness of bread, abundance of idleness, and she refused to slTengthen the hand of the poor and needy; and they were haughty and com­mitted abominations." Read the list carefully, omitting abomi­nations and it sound like the entire U.S. Now for abominations: according to the Lawe of Moses the following are abomina· tiona: eating pork, snails, grasshoppers, clams, oysters, shrimp, of which m08t of the U.S. otanda guilty. The Christian church, or rather the Apostle Paul, abolished theoe things a1 abominations; anyway, these contributed to the fall of Sodom. Having sex with a woman during her menstrual cycle was an abomination. When Christian preachers, eepecially Baptist and Fundamentalists want to preach about the fall of Sodom, let them preach on this text found in Ezekiel 16:49-50, abbreviated of extraneous word­ing. Except for Romans 1, I accept all of Paul's writings as authentic. I think Romane 1 was not written by the Apootle Paul: I think he had better senoe. In Romans I we read thatbeinggayisacune brought upon a person for practicing idol­atry and worshipping idols. Do you believe it? Medical authorities are divided· (1) Some say that being gay is inherited, or congenital. (2) Some say that environmen­tal force& cause a person to be gay. In either cue, the gay person is not responsi­ble !or being gay, and cannot be cured, either it is not a disease: it is an alternate sexual development which Romana 1 saya <in brief) "Professing themoelves to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of God into an image made like man, and birde and beasts and creeping things. They worshiped and served the creature more than the creator. Wherefore, God gave them up! Women had sex with women and men had sex with men. They were filled with all wickedness, covetoua­neu, envy, murder, inventors of evil things, unmerciful, proud boasters. haten of God." This sounds more like the straight popu­lation than like the gay populations. No doubt there have always been such people. Are you gay becuase you have worshiped the above? Do you feel more wicked in all ways than your straight neighbors? Anyway, I married when I was 22 and 1tayed married five yean, had two child­ren. I just couldn't take it any more. I have now been with one male for 25 years. I couldn't become straight, but I sure tried ... ae hard ao anybody could. I have aleo aeen many people during these years, and I can tell you thio: being gay is natural for eome men, and I believe it is inherited; and a man who loves men any time is always aoing to love men. There is not any cure, ju.at like there ia not any cure for blue eyes. I have written thie particularly for thOBe who believe in the Bible and suffer. Be comforted. if David, the man after God'o own heart, loved a man and was not con· demned (and he wasn't, he was con­demned for adultery), you have nothing to worry about insofar 88 you desire to love another man. It is natural for you and God approves. I am (now) a devout Christian, Episcopal. 'Atheists Leave Bad Taste in Mouth Now' From Lynn H~"iclt Beaidea offending me more hia slap at~ Hou1ton than the AGA with its anti­Christian slogan, New Yorker James Fair­child .misaed the reaeon for the booing and banning: not becauae it was an atheiat float but becauee it wae a bigoted float, saying "Christiane leave a bad taste in my mourh." Not just Christianity, even, but Christiane. And in a parade whose theme was supposed to be Unity Through Diver­isty. Jamee, you've got a lotta ... re-reading to do. Like all previous letters protesting the float in the Voice and elsewhere, and Larry Bagemis' statement quoted in the July 15 editorial. They all spell out the reasons: The atheists, not Christians, were guilty of bad taste, disunity and attacking their gay brothers and sisters. Don Sanders' long list of Chnstian offenoes may be true, but it didn't justify an "anti" float, and it make• me think leas of AGA to know it'a an actively "anti" organization, not jW1t a group of gays who choooe not to believe in God. Atheieta have never left a bad taste' in my mouth-before. On The Importance of Religious Participation From Neil Jsbin Like a number of people, I was offended by the Gay Atheists. Their parade entry, employing the imagery of a Hon along with the slogan, "Christians leave a bad taste in my mouth," was inappropriate and irresponsible. At the same time, the attempt to band the Gay Atheists from future parades is an inappropriate over· reaction. A reprimand and atricter guidelines in the future, yee-a ban, no. While a minor­ity, the Gay Atheiato do represent the feel­ings and beliefa of a number of gays who, with good reason, despise all religions, specifically Christianity. If the Gay Athe­ists wish to make fools of themselves and demonstrate their prejudice, they will con­tinue to lose respect and support in the gay community. Banning them will only gain them undeserved respect and support. While atheists frequently criticize the debilitating effects of blind faith, Mr. Sanders doesn't seem to realize that blind hate is as injurious to rational thought as blind faith. 'These Atheists Have Low Standards' From Bill Brun.an That the gay atheists have a right to exi1t, to participate in community activities and Tuesday July 26th at llpm JR's First Jock Short Contest! 1st Prize $75 2nd Prize $50 3rd Prize $25 13 Week Run Off for a Grand Prize Sign Up Time for Contestants is 8-9pm, Tuesday evening, July 26 14 MONTROSE VOICE/ JULY 22, 1983 to attempt to educate the public about the 80-CBlled evila of Christianity, to me, is undeniable. They have the same right.s as the MCCR, Dignity and all other religious and non-religious groups within and with­out the gay community. However. I was one of those bystanders who 80 craaaly booed the atheist's float. When I did it, I did not boo the atheists, but rather the meflSage their float conveyed. That in the one time of the year, when so many of us have a chance to get together to express our pride in ourselves, our gay­ness and our personal beliefs that group would take this opportunity not to express their pride but rather their disdain for oth­ers is to me unconscionable. Perhaps, when the Gay Pride Commit­tee o!lce again allows the American Gay Athe1sta to enter the parade, the atheists will use the opportunity to tell us that they are proud of being gay and proud of being atheista rather than expressing such blat­ant bigotry against their fellow man. Mr. Sanders, next time you wish to pub­licaly express your distaste of others, pleas_e organize your own parade. Perhaps the city can squeeze it in between that of the Moral Majority and the KKK. After all, you have lowered yourselves to their standards The National Debate OverGRNL From Larry Kamin.a, Houston Okay, I've read the story: "West Coast publisher attacks head of Gay Rights National Lobby.'' My response: Oh dear, David Goodstein isn't getting his way so he's trying to take his ball and go home. I've known Steve Endean since he came to Washingon to take over the helm of an organization that was too bankrupt to pay his salary, had no office of its own, had no political direction and moat importantly, had no visibility on the Hill. During those pre-Endean times GRNL did have plenty of advice from David Goodstein. While I haven't always agreed with Steve, I have never doubted that he is doing a splendid job. A brief glimpse a this record speaks for itself: GRNL now has offices on both coasts and in the Midwest; the Gay Rights Bill has a record number of co-sponsors; GRNL has directed congres­sional hearings on the Gay Civil Rights Bill; GRNL (and Steve) spawned the first national gay-oriented PAC; GRNL has built a major constituent network designed to bring hometown lobbying to most members to Congress; GRNL spon­aored the convention project that resulted in such dramatic success at the Demo­cratic presidential nominating conven­tion and a lesser effect at the &publican nominating convention; and throughout it all, Steve has worked tirelessly with a clear political vision of where he and his organization were headed. My initial involvement with GRNLwas to help Steve bring sense to the financial records he inherited. Maybe I'm breaking confidence but, even back then Steve had to contend with Goodstein who offered money, support and advice only with strings and conditions. Sorry Mr. Good­stein, Steve Endean is doing an excellent job and you can't play: maybe because you don't play fair.

I immediately raised my hand and stood up to be recognized. The meeting was adjourned ~10 minutes later and I had not been allowed to speak. I approached presi­dent Bagneris afterwards to explain why I stood up and why I was upset. He refused to Heten and said that he wasn't inter­ested. I had hoped to avoid writing this kind of critical letter, but I am upset with the con· tinued stupid hostility shown by the GPC toward the MONTROSE VOICE. I thought the GPC had learned to accept and understand the proper role of the free press in our society. I thought the GPC had learned to accept that the VOICE would not simply print the GPC party line. I thought the GPC was sincerely inter­ested in repairing the strained relation­ship between the VOICE and the GPC. Mr. Hall, I think you remark was stupid and immature. By laughing, the GPC membership demonstrated similar imma· turity. Unfortunately, the president was unconcerned about the remark and let it pass. I think Mr. Hall owes the VOICE an apology. On behalfoftheGPC, !think Mr. Bagneris owes the VOICE an apology. I doubt either will be forthcoming. I would be nice to believe that in the future, the GPC will learn to accept the role of a free press and learn to deal with the press in a more dignified fashion . However, unless the leadership and the Media Committee are willing to chastise such childish out­bursts, I foresee only continued immatur­ity and conflict.

These three new hit· makers are the composers of the bands fi111t chart am ash, "Sex (I'm a ... )" from their debut album, which upon release, aold 10,000 copies in just five days. This song, with its infectous beat, blends equal parts of new wave, dance and rock gaining acceptance from all three areas. The reason for thia widely diverse blend, as Ms. Nunn put it. is "We have six people in the band and they all come from differ· ent musical backgrounds. I like Bowie. ACI DC, Peter Gabriel, Lena Lovich. I have a conglomeration. I like very strange music and very heavy metal music. David loves Prince and Michael Jackson. He likes funk. And he loves Aerosmith! John Like Ultra Vox, Japan, Culture Club; he love• Boy George• Everybody comes together with different back­grounds and makes the music what it is. I love guitar, so I always push for it." Berlin founder John Crawford sums it up, "We combine everything into our own sound." The group name was derived from pre­war Berlin when the city wa.s full of life and excitement. Considering the average age in th.ii band's nucleus is only 20, it's amazing how totally in control and intelli­gent the trio was in getting the project off the ground Crawford told me, "We did it totally our· eelvea. Everything and anything imagi­nable you can think of from organizing the band, picking our manager." Terry was quick to join in. "It was done on a ahoe string. Everything for the record cost only a few thousand dollars to make and complete it, to what's in the stores now, For the cover we found thia great young kid who didn't really have much experience. He did the cover from two . video ahota that we did ourselves for only $250.00. The best thing is the creative con­trol: we don't have anybody saying what we can or can't do!" I waa curious if the group was going to stay in control after Berlin's initial suc­ceea • .. We have thia thing here that we can alwaya tum to whenever we're argued with," says John. "Hey look, you signed us for that (Berlin's fi111t project), that was all ua, don't argue with us. And they can't. We have given ourselves complete control. Even the record contract~ this record is the basis for judgement for all (Berlin's) oth· en and whether the others will be good enough for the competitors, so we remain aa independent ao posaible. It looks like Berlin is going to be big quickly and it's a little scary because most bands that are big quickly, die quickly. We are going to have to work hard to keep the quality with those changes that occur." A. for the new projects:, Terry informs me, "We're working on videoa for "Sex" and .. The Metro" then we leave for a tour in Europe." With regard to a follow-up album John states, "We've been doing new material for aix montha. enough for a record. We have enough on tapes for four records. There's no •hortage of material. We're just trying to decide a cohesive sound thing for this record that might be different from the la.stone." Remeber the old atandard "Nobody Knowe You When You're Down And Out"? I uked Berlin what this n.,.·found fame wulike. "! get a lot of people calling me from the put. I don't like that," snaps a sensitive and eeroua Crawford. David ia more amued by the "renewed" contact.. "I think it'• funny to figure out who'• true and who'a not because, the ones who aren't true are the ones who aay, 'I hope you don't think I'm just calling now becauae you're doing well' and I just say <David n<>w laughing, amused 'with him· PHOTO C.A BOULEY It (from kft) David Diamond, Terri Nunn and John Crawford of the group Berlin "step" to the top of charts on Hot Wax's Jeffrey Wilson with Wartier Bros. publicist Lea Schwartz. oelO. 'Oh no, I wouldn't think that at all.' And I am just thinking, 'You fools!' because they all say the same thing, it's a game. I'm kind of amused by it. It's like, 'I'm ready to be your friend now'." John is absolutely serious. "Close friends have been there all along." For Terri, the experience has not been a negative one. "It's kind of nice to know that they found me again. That's been more my experience because it is out of the past. Now they see my record or something, I ·like.thJot." However. the thing that Terri likes least about thia recentsucce88 in the music busi­nesa is, "The out.aide commentary about Berlin. People are oo afraid that we're not aincere, thatwedon'tbelievein what we're doing and they're oo quick to put that out. They think thi1 band baa pretentiona and this band can't really believe in this muaic; Berlin can't really be telling the truth and mu1t be formulated after some other band, How could that not tear at you? It ia what we believe in. It'a what we do every day, it's what we live for. And it's that outside commentary that bothers me." Aside from voices of the past and some outside commentary, Berlin is thrilled about so much of the enthusiasm that sur­rounds them. "] didn't really get excited about the record label deal until I actually met David Geffen (president of the group'• label), then I sawwhattheexcitementwas about," says a keyed-up Terri as she emotes, '1He commands such enthusi­asm." John is now lees serious. "Everyone ia being so nice and loving and happy with enthuaiaam. Enthusiasm, it'a infectious!" David concludes, "The thing I like best ia the enthuaiasm from other people, too." Finally, I aaked Berlin if they had any advise to 1hare with other young artist. or hnd juat getting 1tarted. "Berlin provea that you have the power to carve your own nit.ch, in this case some­thing aa moru1terou1 aa the record indus try," states a proud Terri, uwhich Berlin decided to do. We were turned down by every other label in the city including our label, Geffen Records, for the same tape that they (Geffen) bought. So, we put it out ourselves. 'Sex' atarted to get played and 'The Metro' was played because of the momentum Berlin had started then." David takes a philisophical and positive approach from his favorite group. 111 read an interview with Aerosmith right after their Toys Jn TM Attic came out where they were asked if they thought they would make it. Aerosmith's reply waa, 'we always knew we would make it, ao it's not a big deal to us. It's not that exciting, it'• just a step in the evolution of the band because we knew, we believed, we would make it big.'" "I thou&"htto myaelfthatl can'timagine knowing it'• going to happen and all of a audden it juat hit me: 'I don't have to worry, I know it's going to happen to me too. I don't know when it'a going to happen, juat that it i1.' From then on, I've known it. There i1 no doubt in my mind. People just have to believe and know that it'• goinr to happen with no questions in their minds and it will. It happened for Aeroamith and it'• happening with Ber­lin."
