Transcript can be transported legally across the border, but in someone's trunk, it is a lot cheaper, if not safer, since the nitrogen is potentially explosive. So if your plane goes down Mexico way due to a baggage compartment puncture, please don't automatically blame the PLO. What does the director of the medical school think of all this? He's all in favor, according to Smith: "He's the one we sell the bull semen to!" She may not know much surgery when she graduates, but she already knows how to operate. Holy Smoke Signals Billy Graham, announcing that he is coming to the Astrodome next year ,gave the Sunbelt devil his due. According to President Nixon's former chaplain, Houston is not only the fastest growing city but the one in which sin has increased most rapidly. The infallible Baptist says that moral pollution outscores environmental pollution in this neck of the woods, and his plan to stop all those spiritual potholes and noxious ethical emissions is to have one million people here, in his prayer tent, signing pledge cards and getting on the fund-raising mailing list. Graham's advance team should hit town next spring. Behring Avenue Methodist Church's Judy Calvert reports "complete success" in that institution's recent unique fund- raising effort. The pious plot was to give out $10 bills to church members who asked for them and see if the members could multiply the dough for the Lord and not blow it on some Pentecostal ice cream party. See the parable of the talents for the scenario, but Behring's good servants far outnumbered those • 4y*er P^n Wm i mm JMret WmmmWM i f / us Hl ^ 'J|* >§ HBL'w In ^E^ •- urn Kill &^ (w% i fri^yBHj ' i fci *^—^*m$- j mmtBk Mm 1 m J % • 1 ~w ^yf^m *'& mBt 1 hJKi \j@k\ \v Texas Democrats met in Houston last month for the "Governor's" convention. Billy C. was not there and Billy G. did not seek re-election as state party chair. Delegates chose Sherman attorney Bob Slagle over St. Rep. Luther Jones (D-EI Paso) to replace Goldberg. But the real fight of the convention was over the vice chair, a slot recent tradition has given to a black female. In the heated race, incumbent Deralyn Davis of Fort Worth defeated her challenger MAD-candidate Margaret Gomez of Austin. on) in "I Came Back from the Dead for Him ,,," Ingenuity of this sort should better be applied to helping Ken Stabler name his new honky-tonk, set to open after the Oiler season. So far, Stabler is reputedly dithering between the Snake's Pit, Magic Fingers, or Toes. The bar will feature a cocktail — two parts vodka and one part Lone Star - called the Oilermaker. Oi vay. Pol Watching Several thoughts came to mind as City Councilmember Dale Gorczynski was wheeled through the Heights Neighbor- ember and has just finished off a $100-a- black-tie reception for Bob Eckhardt in his South Boulevard mansion. Hobby is a scion of that house which publishes one of Houston's two great daily papers. He is now trying to capitalize on the liberal atmosphere that paper has helped create. The ironies are cosmic. Cynicism is getting a little thick. One of Carter's volunteers posed this one: "What's the difference between Billy Carter and Jimmy? Billy has a foreign policy!" Then, at the Mondale touch-down (the security check on each member of the press corps took longer than the 15- minue press conference), observers at the Hyatt Bauhaus noticed that the correspondents traveling with the feline Fritz were silently mouthing along every word spoken by his press aide introducer and the first few lines of the candidate himself. The fervor of the Anderson supporters is a relief after all this talk of Bonzo, the Gipper and peanuts. Sissy Farenthold, came out strong in an endorsement for J. A.: "Anderson is the only one of the major condidates who is not a saber- rattler. John Anderson is the only one who is making sense on the overriding issue of the survival of the species." Farenthold was joined in her endorsement by Ruben Sandoval, a San Antonio attorney, known for involvement in civil rights struggles, and by Mary Dent Crisp, former vice chair of the National Republican Party. Crisp stressed Anderson's feminism: "John Anderson is the only valid feminist in this election," she said, warning that the Right to Life groups were heavily involved in Reagan support campaigns. Anderson, she noted, promises to establish ERA as a national priority and has pledged to establish and protect public funding for a- bortions and Social Security inclusion of homemakers. Sandoval rejected the "tamales and cerveza" patronage of the Democratic Party and the "pan dulce and cafe" gentility of the Republicans: "The Democrats asked us to vote for a clown and the Republicans for a movie star," he complained, rejecting them both.

(See story) that hid their dimes under a bushel. The return was triple the sum given out two months ago. Now, if Reverend Pogue's flock would only go to the Fourth Ward with some loaves and fishes. . . But for sheer religious zaniness, nothing tops Fairview Baptist Church's recent revival, featuring Samuel Tulloch, D. D. (cum lard) of Vernon Baptist Church in Vernon, Texas. Dr. Tulloch, who will be headlining at other Houston pulpits soon, it is promised, had a week-long spiritual seance, appearing nightly as different Biblical characters with first-hand stories of contact with the Boy from Bethlehem. Monday night, he was Simon Peter, speaking on the topic, "I Denied Jesus;" one night Pontius Pilate and another night Lazarus (yes, with bandages hood Festival dressed in a nightshirt and lying on a baby bed: dog in a manger? whose milk is he guzzling? candy from a baby? whose cribbing whom? Etc. Anyway a fine day, replete with the Encore Jazz Dancers' (hetero, female) mind- blowing imitation of the Village People and the groaning rhythms of the Heights Area Maennerchor. Debra Danburg looks fit as a fiddle and ready for war in her new suntan, helping people to register and vote in her upcoming District 79 battle against Hapless May, a Reagan clone that didn't come out just right.
