LOCAL COLOR bama at Rosedale, has promised her employees "a whole day of all play and no work — wine and cheese and meeting our public/' Coleman's party, set for mid-October, besides savoring the decade of work, will feature a display of her shop's most attractive productions and equipment, new and old, including the "shop dinosaur," a sprightly, re-built, 17-year-old A. B. Dick that arrived on Alabama in pieces, as an orphan, today one of her best presses. The thousands of jobs coming into her shop, she says, are all different. The shop can design, write, photograph, illustrate, print and bind materials. "We have printed for presidents of the United States, churches, women's orgainzations, Kathy Whitmire," said Coleman. "It's just getting better and bigger. This is the best printing crew I have ever had or seen together, everything is paid for, and we can keep on growing in a controlled way." Women-Assaulters Need Love, Too Be very patient with your rapist And bless him when he squeezes He only does it to annoy Because he knows it teases — freely adapted from Lewis Carroll His name is Frederick Storaska. He is 38 and rich. His book and his film is How to Say No to a Rapist. He spoke for two hours early in October at the UH/ Clear Lake City activity center for which he received $2000. He advises you not to forget that the rapist, too, is a human being. He preaches passive resistance. NOW chapters all across the country have never developed much further than that. Certain aspects of his presentation counseling women to appeal to the humanity of their assailant have been modified. "He admits that 55% of the time, you can escape by screaming and struggling," said Randal, "but his basic emphasis is the same." Storaska's critics point out that cooperation, real cooperation, between rape crisis centers and police reduces problems: Baton Rouge's Rape Crisis Center claims a 50 percent apprehension and 90 percent conviction rate for the past year, basically by rejecting the nice guy approach. "Rapists are repeaters," said Randal, "if you get them off the streets, catch them and convict them, you reduce the problem. Some of them specifically stalk 'nice' ladies." She and other critics believe that Storaska's advice is not only wrong-headed, but dangerous, and they question the university's generosity toward such a speaker. Student activities director Wanda Mercer, on the other hand, claimed that a panel of women had made the choice of inviting Storaska for the speech, assuming him to be an enightening authority. "The fact that he aroused controversy is not necessarily bad," said Mercer, "and he was available after the talk for questions from the floor. Besides, he said, aggression is always an an option, if the soft approach doesn't work out. The basic idea he was presenting was use your head in a dangerous situation. People who leaf letted offered no alternative, constructive suggestions." (Here's one: Why not pay the $2000 to the real experts - the Bay Area's People Against Rape and Abuse and the Houston Rape Crisis Coalition). Approximately 250 people paid $2 You Bet I'm Mad, Randy: Montrose resident Randy Yost found a unique way to get his consumer complaint against Qrkin Pest Control before the public. He's put up banners on buildings and placed ads in papers to, in his words, "run Orkin out of business or make them into a valid company" because of poor service. He claims they improperly treated his house for termites and refused to return his deposit ($79 on a $499 job) when he asked that they do it right. protested his appearance and the Clear Lake women posted resolutions condemning his appearance there. "His basic thing," explained Marge Randal, of the Clear Lake Women's Activity Center, "is that when you are attacked, the responsibility is on you. He has moved only a little away from square one, which said that women enticed rapists. He doesn't say that, he agrees you shouldn't feel guilty, but he does say if you are clever enough, you can get out of it. By acting extremely passive. The responsibility is still on the woman — it's just another way of blaming the victim." According to a Texas Observer article (Aug. 22, 1980) on Storaska, the rape expert began 10 years ago with a progressive position, that rape deserved study, but apiece to hear Storaska who is to be followed in the speaker series by Dr. George Sheehan, a marathon expert whose topic (Nov. 18) is "Run for Your Life." The Greater Houston Gun Club, in a related development, expected to discharge of more than 600,00 shells on October 5, Trapshooting Day in Harris County. Lewis Haggin, spokesman for the Greater Houston Gun Club, announcing the occasion said, "Trapshooting is a lifetime family participation sport. It is not dependent on physical strength — some shooters use wheelchairs or crutches." The public was invited to the shoot he said especially women — one of the club's best shots is Linda Ford of Houston, 5 feet tall and weighing 95 pounds, he pointed out. The Gun Club is on McHard Road, just off South Post Oak.
