Transcript Virus Linked to AIDS, Diagnostic Blood Test Developed, Vaccine on Horizon By Robert Hyde Government scientists, both in the United States and France, announced this week that they have identified a virus they say is probably the cause of AIDS, the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome that has affected the lives of over 4000 people in the U.S. and carries with it a mortality rate of 40 percent. AIRo announced this week was the development of a blood test which can identify the virus in AIDS victims, as well as prevent the transmission of AIDS by blood transfusion The causative virus identified by the US. research team is known as HTLV-111 and 1s thought to h,• related to the T-ct'll leukemia virus The Pasteur Institute in Paris identified the virus as LAV, scientifically known as lymphyadenopathy associated retrovi­rus. An American scientist will visit Paris early in May to determine if the viruses are the same. In the wake of the recent discoveries, scientists feel that a vaccine for the killer syndrome, which destroys the body's immunological system and leaves it open to a myriad of diseases, may be just on the horizon, possibly as soon as two vears from now. But~ke.,tir~! ~ ... 1en,ists teel that it w ;ll u.i<e much ionger for the vaccine to be developed. Dr Robert (' Gallo, head of the US. AIDS research team, said that the viral protein necessary to developing the AIDS vaccine is available in large amounts from DNA techniques. "The principle6 are all there," he said in a recent Lo~ Angelei; Times article. "We should have it ready to be tried by then (within two years)." Unfortunately, the recent discovery of the virus will not be of much help to AIDS victims whose immunological systems are already destroyed. However, blood tests which could early diagnose the syndrome, could lead to preventative measures against the d1Sease before it damages the immunological system beyond repair_ The May 4 issue of Science will con tam research papers b) the Ameri<'an team. ~Listi r,/!:::,c:1.r, ~r,tc:,r, i c:> C3c:t.y c:::;c:,m m LI,-, ity April 2 7 , 1984 Issu e . 1 2 Publishe d Eve ry Other Fri d a y Mondale Strengthens Pro-Gay Plank on Military Larry Bush, p.2 U.S. Civil Rights Director Attacks Gays Larry Bush. p.5 'Tarzan of the Whimps' or 'I'm an Actor-I'll Play Hunky' Steve Warren films, p.6 Court of Appeals Hears Oral Arguments on 21.06 The Roc-kv Mountain Regwnal Rodeo 1s part of the newly formmg gay rodeo circuit Get Out Your Boots and Rhinestones, the Gay Rodeo is Coming to Texas Billie Duncan, p.4 By Don Ritz NEW OHLEA!l;S-The Fifth Circ-u1t Court of Apprals heard the arguments for and agmnst the "unconst1tutionahty' of Section 21 06 of thr Tl' 11~ Penal Code on months hcforc a dec1S1on 1s handed down Section 21 06, commonly referred to as the "homosexual conduct" law, was origi­! lally brought to court by the Texas Human Rights Foundauon and Dallas gay activist llon Baker. The law made cer­tain sexual acts 11legal between two con­senting adults in pnvate In the trial of Bakrr us. Wade (Henry Wade, Dallas D1Strict Attorney), U.S Dis­trict Court Judge Jerry Buchmeyer det.er­m i ned that Section 21.06 wa• uncon•titutional. Buchmeyel''s deciston was originally appealed by Governor Mark White, who was Attorney General at the time. How• ever, White's successor in the Attorne~· General's office, Jim Mattox, chose to drop the appeal. When Mattox dropped the appeal, Pot­trr County Distnc-t Attorney Denny Hill, funded by a group calling it.self Dallas Doctors Against AIDS (DDAA), picked up the appeal. In the Appeals Court heann,:-, DDAA lawyer Rod Stakely began bv staling that Don Baker had "no standing" or no right to contest Section 21 06. Stakely said that lx,cause Baker had not been arrested, threatened with arrest, or had not lost a job because of the statute, he did not have a right to contest it. Attorney Charles Bundren, represent­ing Hill and OOAA. contended that the law did not represent a violation of the "right to privacy." Bundren cited the case of Doe us. Com­monwealth's Attorney, which contested the Virginia sodomy law. Bundren said that the Supreme Court ruled in the case that there was no ngh, to engage in pri­vate homosexual condurt Said Bundren, "The District Court should have followed the ruling in Doe us. Commonwealth's Attorney-there is no right to privacy to engage in private homo­sexual conduct. No court ha.sever decided that the right to privacy extends to homo­sexuals." Randren explained that the right to pri­vacy e1<tcnded only to the home, marriage, family procre.at1on and child rearing "There cannot be a nght to privacy for homo exuals because thev are not the 6 th•••J\~~=n.ins1~tut1a Bi.ndrcn Bundren da1med ":-iection 2106 was not a status statute. It regulates conduct and speafically defines conduct_ Tius sta­tute is neutral on 1ts face_ It applies to any person. It does not classify persons as to whether they are white, black, brown, male or female. It is any person who engages in the conduct." Bundren concluded that morality, decency and pubhc health v,ere issue,; in the tate's interests. Homosexual conduct violated those interests. Therefore, Bund­ren reasoned, the Backmeyer dcci,.ion should be overturned. DDAA Attorney Donovan Campbell spoke to the court m referl'nce to medical information submitted on AIDS and health-related materials. Campbell said that the information that had been submitted shov,ed the ..tate's compelling interest in upholding Section 21.06. Jim Barber, counsel for the plamt1ff Don Baker, began, '1'he trial court's deci­sion shou Id be affirmed because the plain tiff clearly had standing Furthermore, Section 21.06 was enacted clearly for the purpose of discnminating against homo­sexuals. There i, no eV1dence to show that 1t is in the compelling interests of the ~-taw for such a statute." During the hParing. 1t was sugge1>ted that the law was unfair to approximately 500,000 to 1 million homosexuals in Texas. Harber explained that Baker did have a right to contest the statute in that Baker was, is, and will be a practicing homosex­ual. Furthermore, the law had been enforced and testimony from the District Attorney said that the law would continue to be enfol'<'ed. Barber said that the Supreme Court had ruled that thenght to privacy provided for the autonomous control over one's intel­lectual and personal pursuits, whether married or single, without governmental mterferenC'e or intrusion. 2 THE STAR/ APRIL 27, 1984 Mondale Strengthens Pro-Gay Plank on Military By Larry Bush Former vice president Walter Mondale told supporters recently that he now believes that the military's ban on homo­sexuals ought to be changed. Mondale made the statement at a women's forum in New York City, accord­ing to Mondale aide Nikki Heideprien. Mondale's statement on the military marks his second shift toward a strong gay rights position since responding to a questionnaire presented candidates by .five national gay rights groups. In March, Mondale announced his support for the Senate gay civil rights bill, which would ban discrimination in employment. Mon­dale's initial responses supported an exec­utive order banning discrimination in most government employment and servi• ces, as well as l~lation, but did not spec• ify support for the Senate bill or extend to the military and national security posi• tions. Mondale's latest announcement was prompted by complaints from gay Mon­dale supporters in New York that the former vice president lagged behind the commitment made by Sen. Gary Hart (D. Colo.) to end discrimination in the mil­itary, according to sources close to the Mondale campaign. Alan Rosko ff, New York director for the Remember the Alamo? A Chicago man wants to remodel the Alamo, but Texans are telling him to forget it, reports USA Today, Gary Foreman says the shrine of Texas independence needs a $2 million facelift to make it more "historically accurate." He wants to rebuild the earth and wood ram­part where Davy Crockett died, and the adobe barracks where Jim Bowie gave his last orders, as well as adding lifelike Tex­ans and Mexican figures. The daughten of the Republic ofTexa,i, which has been taking care of the Alamo since I 905, says there's no proof Fore­man's plans are historically accurate. And Alamo curator Charles Long accuses Foreman of wanting to tum the shrine into the set of a John Wayne movie.

Pen• tagon officials said between 1,500 and 2,000 people are discharged annually for suspected homosexual activities. . Gay Mondale backers in the New York primary meanwhile sought to expolit Sen. Hart's reluctance to endorse and cospon• eor the Senate gay rights bill which had been endorsed by Mondale. In a full page ad appearing in the New York City News, a gay newspaper, gay Mondale backers said that a City Council member who refused to cosponsor gay civil rights mea• sures would not earn gay support for a mayoral candidacy, and that a U.S. Sena• tor who refused to take that step should not be supported for president. In related developments, Sen. Hart reportedly cancelled a scheduled appear­ance at the headquarters of the Gay Men's Health Crisis to demonstrate his concern about the federal response to AlDS. The visit, slated for March 30, was cancelled in part due to fears that a campaign to close gay bath houses in San Francisco might be endorsed by city officials the same day as Hart's visit, throwing unwanted public­ity on what gay AIDS leaders in New York considered to be a relatively unimportant side issue, and in part because of Hart campaign fears about a backlash from conservative and orthodox Jewish voters who are increasingly strident in their anti• gay statements. Hart campaign officials did not return calls asking for comment. Rev. Jessi' Jackson, whose New York campaign was also backed by lesbians and gay men, including noted political writer Doug Ireland, paid a Saturday call on the New York City Gay and Lesbian Community Center. Jackson was the only presidential candidate to appear at a gay community locale during a campaign oth• erwise notable for stops in ethnic watering holes and community centers.

I.inda Chavez, staff director of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, also said "the homosexual rights movement has really damaged what ought to be the privacy of homosexuals" by insisting on civil rights protections. "··: What you are really doing inviting pubhc scorn and also public persecution, when you attempted to make these issues a matter of public debate," Chabez told the "Family Protection Report," a publication of the ultraconservative Free Congress Foundation, which also sponsored publi­cation of The Homo.,exual Network, a book allegeding that the gay rights move­ment rt'Ce1ves in excess of$2.50 million in public funds each year. "The Family Pro­tection Report" was launched as a support newsletter for the Family Protection Act, a New Christian Right proposal that included provisions to dl'ny gays and gay rights supporters any right to participate in fednnl programs. Chavez, II former top aide to American Feclcration of 'I'earht•rs leuder Albert Shun hr, was appointed by President Rea• gun in a n•shuftling of the nation's top dv1l rights pant•! to give it a more conser­vativt• orit•ntation.

"The old Commission did not believe that it was this Commission's jurisdiction to take a look at sexual preference," Chea­vez noted. "I don't know whether they had a position about whether sexual prefer­ence ought to be included under the Civil Rights Act. And, my guess is that that i&me is g01ng to come before the this Com­mission. A!i you well know, at the federal level thl're is a bill that would make sexual preference one of the protected classe,;." Cha ,·l'z recounts the themb of an article on gay teachers she published when ,he was editor of American Educator, endor, ing its suggestion that gays stay in the closet. The article "ab authored by Wil liam Rennell, who no\\ serves as Pres1• dent Heagan's !'hairman of the ,!l;ational Endowment for the Humanities. "Essentially the position he came out with WHR, I think, a very reasonable one," Cheavez said. "You don't want to suggest that homosexuals ought to be persecuted. The question is really in some ways a mat­ter of how homosexuals themselves approach the issue. Surely, everyone can remember expenences as a !'hild in school, remembering this or that tear her, one that you thought perhaps was a homosexual. But it's one thing to have a teacher that believes that he or she has the nght to come m and promote homo,exual,t) as a , ery viable alternath e to hewo,exuahty. "I behe,e that the homo,e.xual rights movement has re.ally damaged what ought to be the pn,acy of homosexuals," Chavez s&1d.

Tarzan's innocence is a question the film overlooks but since we don't have to worry about a upG" rating, we ask if he wouldn't have lost It among the apes as he was growing up. "If you mean his sexual innocence, yes," Hudson confirms. "In another book (of Burroughs' series), he falls in love with a she-ape .. " Hudson prefers to regard innocence ma broader sense, companng Tarzan to Adam In his Eden, "D'Amot (the Belg1an sea captam played by Ian Holm who mtrudes on behalf of civilization) is the serpent, 1f you look at 1t that way " Con81denng that previous screen Tar zans have been drawn from the ranks of profoss1onal athletes rather than actors, Hudson's casting approach was radical "I wasn t m good shape," Lambert admits, puffing on a cigarette Sot months of rigorous training-"For the first months, I wanted to kill my tramer"-got him mto shape.

He talks at length about the fasn• natmg and important research in com• mumcations that goes on there, and puts ma plug for Fouts.

Vnznk" who shares S<·rePnplay credit on the final version of the film. The final budget was more than half agam what Towm• had envisioned, hut Hudson shrugs it off "Budgets are what they nC<'d to be." His first film , at the age of eight, was an imaginative home movie. Until his first featun•, Charwts of Fir,•, he was restricted to making commercials and doeumentar• ies; but he says without false modesty, "Ive always known I could make films." Although the story of Tarzan "has to be an adventure story to he accessible to eve­ryone," Hudson hopes the people who sec his version will get more than that out of it. "It's not meant to he a moralistic work exactly .. ," he says, hesitating to keep from saying something uncommercial; but he does a bit of moralizing on his own; "Any sane man or woman would believe that...it's not right to kill an animal." The story is set in the early part of the century, during what Hudson calls "the great age of zoological expansion." Lord John Clayton, 7th Earl of Greystoke, is orphaned by th!' death of his shipwreckrd parents and raised by a family of primates until, when he's about 26, he's discovered by a hunting party and returned to his ancestral home in Scotland. Among the issues which interested H ud­son m the project is the question of how far we've really evolved from the apes "Think of this film," hi, 1mggl' ts, "in relation to Dr. J,•ky/1 and Mr. llydl'-the beast inside the m11n.
