Transcript uNcr1us 40~ VOLUME 1. NO. 3 SEPTEMBER 1970 HOUSTON I TEXAS $10,400.00 REWARD IN GAY CLUB FIRES BULLSEYE FIRE ARSON? ACCIDENT? The Bullseye Club at 1212 Westheimer burned early Monday A.M. August 17. The club was opened July 18 this year by Richard Caldwell a newcomer to the Houston club circuit. The building was owned by Sybil Leek, well known "witch" who had recently moved from this location to Houston's West University area. Sybil Leek, after having spent a great deal in the decoration and remodeling at this site, moved because "she had bad vibrations at this place." This was the first dinner club for the Gay Set in our city and fast becoming one of the more popular dining and drinking spots. August 21st, less than one week after this loss Richard was looking for another location to re-open. This sounds like two pervious persons recently experiencing this same misfortune. Gene Howe I I, co-owner of the Plantation Club on West Gray was burned out. Relocated on Montrose and Che1 sea Place and is now closed again due to difficulties with the building owner. This closure is being aired in the courts but Gene is actively seeking quarters for this long time Houston Fun Club. Ron Levine owner of a fine new club, The Palace Club on Berry Street, found himself burned out also. The all new Palace Club and Sky Terrace is the result of this fire. These fires were all very costly, well into the Hundreds of Thousands. The Plantation Club, The Palace Club were ruled arson by the authorities. The Bui I seye???? Mr. Parks of the Houston Fire Department Arson Squad said "the cause as yet has not been determined." $10,000.00 has been offered for the arrest and conviction of person or persons responsible for the fire destroying the Palace Club and The Plantation Clubs in Houston, Texas. Ronnie Lavine, Palace Club and Sky Terrace has offered $10,000.00. Emet A. Newton, Jr., co-owner of the Plantation Club has offered $400.00. This paper is well aware of the stories circulated un­founded in the Gay circules regarding these disastrous fires. Anyone knowing facts of the fires may contact the follow­ing feeling secure in knowing any information wi 11 be held in strict confidence. Ron Lavine - Palace Club & Sky Terrace Emet A. Newton, Jr. - Cabaret Theatre Phil Frank - The Nuntius COURT ASKED TO DROP SODOMY CASE A question of whether the State of Texas filed its appeal on time may give the U. S. Supreme Court an opportunity to sidestep the Buchanan case. Claiming the state's jurisdictional brief, the first step in the appeal process, was filed two days late under the Supreme Court's own rules, Alvin Leon Buchanan's attorney has asked the tribunal to dismiss the state's appeal. The only thing which would have compe I led the high court to hear the case was the fact that the state was appealing. A cross appeal filed by McCluskey may or may not stand on its own, but the court will not have to hear it. The Advoc ate PAGE.2 SEPTEMBER 1970 I I :B I I I I . I . I I I I I .

As recent ly as last weekend we had the honor of your presence here in Dallas, and I ment ioned that we had jus t comple ted anoth er lounge he re in Dallas to give all our friends in Dallas and Houston, Galveston and other Texas cities a nice clean comfortable place in which to meet each other. Our's is the L overs Lane Landing Strip on L over's Lane . Even the names been changes, and so has the decor. The lounge is spacious, probably the largest in Da llas, as it is not divided up into sma ll rooms, but you can see every one from a ll sections of the room. We have seating capaci ty for 175 persons and a lot of s tanding room, two bar areas and a raised stage behind the cen­tral bar built in a pro fessi onal way so as to enable ev eryone to watch the drag shows from any part of the lounge . By the way, La rry, form erly from the ------- who conduc ted th e show you saw while in Da llas, is bringing his show to the Landing Strip and will perform their new show only from this s tage. He is planing new and larger shows for your intertainment. I do hope you and y our s taff will be able to come down next Sunday evening to see our show and enjoy our facilities. Show time 8:00 p.m. Sunday and Thurs day, Classic mov ies on Wednesday. We wish you success in your new long awa ited venture and if we can he lp you in anyway . le t us know. Sc ott Randall, Mike Pe terson, Robby Gi bson Dear Scott, Mike a nd Robby, Thanks for your letter and wish the same for you three in the new lounge . Wi 11 make every effort to see your place before the next issue of the paper. Left this paragraph out of your letter when setting the type but will add it here. We have a large dance floor, and have installed s terofonic sound which makes dancing more enjoya ble, and als o ins talled 18 ton s of Air to keep each one cool. Phil Frank Dear Editor, In an swer to s ome misconceptions of the Exile . The Exile , has always worked with other "bars", never in­fringeing on the ir s pecia lties even to the e xtent of free advertisments. Never have I deceived the public with my entertainme nt. "I have a lways tried to offer the best possible without going up on the prices o f drinks or having a cover charge." These en tertainers have never been short-changed and in fact have been paid in excess of agreed rate when pe rformance warranted. (Exception - when the performer does not fulfill their obligation, s uch· as doing only one show wh en more a re con tracted for, in such cases the pay is adjusted acccxdingly.) There has never been implied segregation, nor any implication of s uch by me or my employees. Such enter­tainers as well as employees are hired to give their best to the public. I thank you, my customers for your patronage and welcome your constructive criticism. Frank Lewis Dear Frank, I hope by reproduc ing your lette r here in this medium helps and fee l sure it wil l. Ha ve been familiar with you and your fun club s inc e its open ing under your charge, people who know you need not read the above .

The reports were very good and anyway HAPPY BIRTHDAY. If you will send me your address, my g ift will be a 12 month subsc ription to the Nuntius. Ph ii Fr a nk P .S. - Hi Danny, Ron, J oe PAGE 4 Private Club Battle Over Private clubs battling the Alcoholic Beverage Commis­sion's rule lost the final state round last week, but the ABC s a id the rule shou ld not put hardships on any club. Some club owners contend Rule and Regulation 56 will put 75 percent of the club owners out of business. But Administrator 0. N. Humphreys, Jr . said the new rules are simple to obey and easy to understand. The final effort of the clubs failed Wednesday when the Texas Supreme Court denied a rehearing in its prev ious decision upholding the A8C. ~THE OTHER~\ r{ PLACE ....k!:?' no-vv opera. ting a.s THE THREE EE.ARB Open Oail y 4 Lo 12 - - Sunday 7 to 12 New 7665 Location COLLEGE ST. 835-9659 BEAUMONT, TEXAS The Att ic Club and the Black Garter Clubs of Dallas filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court Friday but it was not immediately determined whether this would delay enforcement by the state. Humphreys said the ABC will give the club operators to adjust to any changes required in their operations. "We are extremely pleased that the court has agreed with our contention that Rule and Regulation No. 56 is needed to regulate private clubs, " Humphreys said. " In the language of the court," Hempreys said, "the rule requires no more than that private clubs determine the credentials of a guest and hence his right to enjoy c lub.favors, by the simple test of whether he is personal­ly known to and vouched for by a host-member. " Likew ise, the implementation of the statutory require­me nt that a pr ivate club 'shall prov ide regular food service adequate for its members and the ir guest s ,' in terms of 'comp lete mea ls ava ilable on the club prem ises', is in our op in ion, sufficient ly understandable to the operators of private c lubs . "All t hat Rule 56 requ ires is that i:,rivate c lubs conduct their a ffairs as contemplated by the enabling definition in Article 666-1 5 (e); this means that club privileges and immunities a re not to be available to strangers or those who happen by, a nd that a token or less than complete food service for the members and their guests will not suffice." SEPTEMBER 1970 ADVOCATE FALSELY REPORTS SAN ANTONIO RAID In the Aug . 10-Sept. l Advocate, a National Gay News­paper the fol lowing appeared. "POLICE ACTIVE AGAIN IN SAN ANTONIO - Pol ice activ ity aga inst Gays has apparently resumed in San Antonio, after a lul I of near ly two years, with a combined raid by city a nd military police on tomm1e's, a midtown bar. The number of arrests was undetermined. The raid reca I led an anti-Gay campaign in the city a number of years ago. Tommy 's Bar was not raided and there were no arrests. There is no stimulated "police harrassment" of Gays and Gay Bars. San Antonio is clear and calm as of now. Reports of th is nature are apt to happen, it is unfortunate but reliable informants sometimes confuse iss ues when routine investigations occur. A young Gay went to her doctor with the problem that each time she s neezed she had an orgasm. The doctor asked how long th is had been going on and having been told for three months quickly asked? "What have you been doing for it, my dear?" The meek reply was, "sniffing pepper!"

The T.L.C.B. will in effect inforce the new club laws to the letter. The law in laymans language is, so far as the members are concerned: There will be no such thing as a guest card. If you are not a member of the club you wish to attend, join, go with a member or don't go! If you go with a member as his guest, you are that and must remain as simaise twins. The member is to pay the check, not the guest. You are to be in the company of the member while in the club. If you are a club member you must pay your entrance fee for membership. In addition there wi II be a charge for the "liquor pool" in the club of which you are a member. This "liquor pool" charge is made monthly and must be reported to the state. Your not meeting this obligation jepordizes your standing as a member of said club. The club operators have to ·meet certain rules in order to be open for your enjoyment. Doing your part without any problem makes your club owners job much easier, you do this for yourself, he does it for all of you.

We had a pocket fu II of great things to te II you about "The Bullseye" on Westheimer. This smart club was exactly what Houston and our crowd needed. Sad note tho' that a couple of Sundays ago the place burned and was a total loss. This is really a loss and I hope Richard puts his beautiful personality (and, I might add georgeous self) into another spot immediately. Besides, I don't know where to find Cora Collier now that I can't look there for her. Rickey Crawford is still holding court at the "Trade­winds", you don't have to have an appointment but just a warning - he promised this one a diamond ring but am still wearing the copper band the Duke gave me for services beyond - - If you go by there - don't run in the streets with Joe M. You might end up, as I did look­ing for another bottle while he sets his already red hair on fire and runs up main street trying to attract attention. Have you m Is sed anyone I ate ly? I know where they are - The Red Room is S.R.O. again - guess the main attract­ion is the d once area - but Saturday night there re­minded me of several years ago when the "RR" was "The" place to go. Don was head of a group from SEPTEMBER 1970 Austin - Roger from Baton Rouge and his Clark who always make our town a more attractive spot ware there. Also met visitors from Dallas - Lubbock and one pretty thing with a South Texas accent who said he was from Central America plus many-many-people from "Our Town." Congratulations Eddie - - Have you shown Houston to anyone lately? I love this town, I could live anywhere in the States that I choose but I think this town has more potential and more to offer "US" than any other city. I try to show "Our Town" off at every opportunity but in doing just that I ran into a delightful couple, that recently chose to move to Houston from New York via Hawaii - and they showed me something. After meeting at the previous I ly mentioned "Bullseye" we had a pleasant dinner at one of our many excellent restuarants. They then asked me to be their guest for after dinner drinks at the New "Palace Club". Like many of you, I haven't gotten, around to joining, so I had not seen this recent addition to Houston - there really isn't too much I can add to what has been said about the P .C. except that you really must see it to believe how lovely it is . If, like me, you have neglected or delayed joining, perhaps a member will show you what I mean - or I think Ronnie can manage a guest card for you to see what you are missing. Handsome blond,David is there now, with many others to see that you get your favorite beverage and enjoy your evening at what is truly one of the outstanding clubs for "our set" anywhere in the world. the new KON-TIKI Bigger - 214 23RD "ON THE ISLE PAGE 7 Open Seven Days a Week 6:00 p.m. ti 11 2:00 a.m. After Hours - Thursday - Friday - Saturday 2:00 a.m. till 4:00 a.m. Drag Shows - Thursday and Sunday - 8:00 p.m, Dancing each night with Sterio Sound Largest dance floor in Dal las Less and M.

Visitors - if you have lost anyone's un­i i sted number - stop by here, they wi 11 come in eventual­ly . I still haven't been able to get by "The Exile" for one of the shows. I have been by seiveral times - other than being the most convient place to get a bucket of water to douse Joe's hair it is still the best place to meet visitors to Houston. They seem to hear about it some­where - could it be the Nuntius -? Our editor has asked me to brunch Sunday - he has been hinting strongly that my copy should have been in days ago but if I turn it in too early we might miss some­thing. He doesn't have to feed me to get copy - but guess it works. I will surely have this ready, it is only 4 a.m. now of that same Sunday. Speaking of invitations - Everitt and Larry are having a few locals in to meet their Ohio house guest. Hope they don't know it is on Nanny's birthday - it is much too hot this time of year to lite that many candles. Ronnie, Al, and I tore Payne away from her corner to visit the Roaring 60's one night this past week. Rita and Ricci are excellent hosts. The girls really enjoy this Shephard Street spot. PAGE 8 As hard as I try, I don't get around as wel I as I did in my youth - and as much as Houston and the area offers there is no way to see and know all. If there is anything I should know or check on - drop me a note to: Nanny - % The Nuntius. Beaumont, Dal las, S.A. and other cities. I don't intend to ignore you - just haven't hod on op­portunity. Beware I may show up anytime. See you Wednesday at LoCojo Steak Nite. Nanny sorcerer's corner by Don Petrulengro Estrolito (Spiritual Psychologist) Goy bar owners should consult the stars. This is the lesson to be learned by the recent Bullseye trogidy . In fact, I told the Arson Squad inspector, at the scene of the blaze, "If you reol ly wont to know the cause, look!" at that, I solumnly gestured toward the full moon. What is more, the inspector was in full agreement. Well, since that is, thank goodness, in the post, let's toke a look at September. Bar owners better prepare for gigantic crowds, because a lot of new, young boys ore coming out. Venus is in Scorpio from the 6th on, and with Mars in Vergo, we gays hove a beautiful month ahead, with rare exception. This is a great time for many signs to get a little more serious in the area of romance. On the 11th, watch out, because Venus will advance into devine conjunction with Jupiter. Beautiful emotional involvements will result, possibly with someone you wou Id hove never expected. Please submit questions and requests for predictions to this paper: Our crystle boll is partial to our gay bro­thers and sisters. YOUR HOMOSCOPE for SEPTEMBER Aries: A great month to find true love, and make new associations. Don't be surprised if you find on old friend is now your lover!

Cancer: Satern is ringing your wedding bel Is unti I the 15th. Toke advantage of that special relationship, be­cause the planets couldn't be better. Your only problem will be deciding between more than one lover, e·speciolly when that old flame returns to find you smitten by another. Leo: Don't get too serious now, because it wi 11 seem that nothing will go right. Do a lot of cruising, especially in unusual places, and a good prospect wi II be I ined up for the future.

Robert, Bernard and Dale sat in the office (wel I I it table} and Looked over what was in the sheet. Wanting more support called Bob, the operator of Ken's Rooms upstairs, for his opinion. Bob was, as always, gracious not to say anything offensive about our paper, that is, as long as we were there. Delivered papers, collected loot, went to Kon Tike and Gym Baths.

Asked how many copies of Nuntius they wonted for the Gym. In answer was told they did not handle tongeoble merchan­dise. Wow! What's in the market here. About this time the manager of the Kon Tike popped in. This was just great for me as time was passing as was my good reasoning ofter the drinks and all. The Kon Tiki boss asked Wolter what he planned for the next issue? "A full page, of course, what else!" To this the wheel replied, "In that case, I'll just toke a whole paper."

His knowing well where I hod been - having bolls of course. SEPTEMBER 1970 DALLAS Couple hours later ofter much bitch from Hie got in rent car and left for big "D". The trip up was fine - don't stay at the Baker. Has been years since having stopped at this landmark and one of the first "Pony Express Riders" was still wandering up and down the hall. The place is old, and I do mean old - nothing "Hippy" about this place - thought we were in a grove. Still early, went across the street to what "used to be" one of the spots. Hosen' t changed in years - no air - old faces - wrinkle room - no wonder with everything jaded. Was told before going up about the tight owner must hove been true. Being unable to breathe rushed for the door and a cab - having the name of a spot cal led the Aquarius - which was supposed to have life. Seeing a white car with block lettering across the street in front of hotel, Hie soys, "cob?" Hoving seen a police car earlier which looked much the some all but ran. Hie, for a change, was right, it was associated with Yellow Cob company - a supervisors car. Radioing in the super­visor ordered us a cab and got the Aquarius address for us . Hie went to the corner and " crused" for a cob but having no I uck, the supervisor took us for free to the club. " Private club?

This is a well run machine. FORT ¥#ORTH-Sunday A.M. called a long time friend in '-1/axahachie, drove over for Orange Blossoms with he and his mother.

Our to these two places in Fort Worth. Back in Dallas in P .M. but still not in time, late for the show. Show, yes at the Aquarius and what a show. It was a beautiful, wonderful production. This is professional in every respect. The most of the two or three hundred watching were fanning with The Nuntius, hope they read it later. SAN ANTONIO-Monday A.M. - found keys, gave hie his beer and off to San Antonio. Arrived, checked in motel, had party with Hie, then off to the clubs. Stopped at Gil's first and found he had gone to Houston. Time running out went to The Christopher at 722 South St. Mary's. This new blossom on the scene is going to soon be in full bloom. Chris is going to have one of THE spots in the state. Has many plans for his new plant. As of now he has "Live Rock" Friday, Saturday and Sundays with "Jam Session" on Wednesdays.

SEPTEMBER 1970 Tired - wanted to rest or sober up - went down the street to the Mini-Park Theatre. No rest here as the flicks here too much to offer. In the flesh, had me jumping in my seat - -. I was tired but now worn out from all this bountiful, blisful activity . Why don't you rest up and go fresh. Want to go by the Numbers but afraid of Jack. This is a fine place for a cool drink in a relaxed atmosphere. If the operator will be patient I am told THEY will come for him??? Miss seeing Jack at the other spots, he real ­izes of course, his presence is required as his mouthy help tells all when he is away. Well here I am at the bar with glass in hand watching color TV feeling just as comfortable as if I were at home. Thanks for this place in the wee morning hours - not lonely at al I. What do the two Rons at the Cloud Club have in store for us next. Another first - Palace Pizza Palace? - with imported wines and beers. They are fresh made here in the sky and good - understand not the angles but "Ferries" run this kitchen. This food service is available during club hours but after jumping all over town - so palatable after hours on weekends from 2 - 4. Live entertainment with sing along at this hour is a great change and new to all of us.

Get in the RR - that is if you can. Have been to this swinging bar several times and the change is unblievable. Dance up a storm in this beehive of honeys - honeys - honeys - Who selects the prime bees behind the bar - didn't know there were that many good looking "Queen Bees" left. If empties ore an indication it's no wonder we have a garbage problem, takes one truck for this­bright- spot. The Plantation owners have three law suits pending over a dispute with the landlord but will re-open soon but in all probability at another location. Gene is not by many means inactive - but spending a busy time in in a spot on the square. The show at this spot has a number of our favorite entertainers and the show is continuous. Visit our boy and make him feel good - he's working for you - let's not forget this. New face - behind this front is a beautiful new club -. The Entree at 1322 Westheimer. All new - open to the public - pool, pinball and dancing. This is a great addit­ion to our circuit. All new Spanish decor, you must see this club to realize the funds and work that has gone into this bar to make it one of our best. The operators have great pl ans for this al I new bar and for us. Good luck and best wishes, save my table. Talking about new faces, the new 11- 13 Club located at 5607 Morningside around the corner from the Village Theatre, a great new addition. Beth and her son Eddie have had numerous problems in getting started but at this time things are really popping here. The club has just everything, pool, pinbali', dancin~ mixed drinks and the host and hostess with fine friendly service. The mixture here is a most appealing factor (boys and girls) everyone having a good time. Didn't know there were as many birthdays as there are but seems to be one here nightly. For the West University area this is a much needed improvement. Watch for the plans in the making for this gala club which are not complete as yet to print. Bullseye - this club burned but the all alive Richard Caldwell has been hot ever since. Burning up the streets seeking a new location. Thought he would be able to re­build but Frank said the insurance coverage was not sufficient to do so. We have the patience if you have and are behind you all the way. Rumours - people talk - queens squawk! Romulus Club under the ski lied operation of Scotty is just greater than ever. Can't understand how his business continues to grow with new places opening but sti II plays to a packed house nightly. Have you heard as I have heard that they were having to close - something about the lease or­whotever. These stories ore not true - the Club Romulus has a strong-long time lease that will bee most of the talkers "old aunties" before it runs out. So there! PAG E 15 BORED? TIRED? OVERJADED?

My I ittle blue car pulled in backwards, so the sea and the surf would not get my windshield dirty. An ice cold Fabaucher would taste real good, even at this early hour, as I had been out barring around the night before. So I opened the trunk of my car, took out my ice chest and removed a cold can of beer. I went behind my car then, even thou the beach was all mine, and slipped out of my jeans and into my swimming suit. Yawning and stretching I took another sip of beer. Taking from the ice chest a package of chicken necks, I split the plastic wrapper, and withdrew three. Hove you ever seen a half thaughed chicken neck. "GROOSE" I then took three lengths of kite string, about ten feet long, and tied them to the chicken necks, or should I soy the other way around. Three poles that had once been , the new KON-TIKI Bigger - Better - 214 23RD ''ON THE ISLE SEPTEMBER 1970 TOP VALUE Printing Co. 4003 Bluebonnet ... 667 - 9803 mop or broom handles, and affixed the other end of the string. Another sip of beer and with gear in hand, down to the sea I went. (Gulf). Believe me at this ear ly hour the water is really cool, but being a n inty pounder I plunged into the surf, and waded out with main strength and oworkwardness I shoved and pushed the poles in the surf till they felt like they were snug and tight. The poles about fifteen feet apart, I threw the chicken necks to the undercurrent to play with, and to drag on the bottom. 5ock at the car for another sip of beer, which by this time was beginning to get worm. About seven twenty, crab net in hand, bock to the water I went to check the crab lines . The first line, nothing, the second line noth­ing, but yes, the third line hod a female crab chewing on the bait. I spit in her face and tossed her bock in, with "go home, tell your big brother to come back". He must hove, for bock on the second line I retreoved a nice blue claw. {Mole) which I put in the toe sock, bock to line two, one crab, bock to the sock, bock to line three, no crab, over to line two again, no crab. But bock on line one, one more crab, which I took bock to soc. Now the next hour it was bock to lines, back to soc, bock to lines, bock to sock, and etc. At this point I was tired and thirsty, 'cause if you have ever tried to buck the waves and undercurrent, if your ninty pounder, it con wore you down, and anyway I had mode a pretty good catch. I went bock to car, took a fresh beer, and sot down. I figured I hod about ten or twelve nice crabs in the toe sock, and I needed the rest. I waited about the length of a slow beer drinker, and went bock in the water tow ork the lines again. I've been crabbing for about twenty years, and hove learned if your real corefull, you con ho Id about three era bs in a net, "but you gotta be quick." I would walk from each line and howl them in, when I had three crabs in my net then I would go bock to toe sock, and then go bock to lines. I did this for about thirsty minutes, and hod some more luck, bringing up one or two crabs off each line. By the time I was thirty again, I had about thirty nice crabs in the sack. They were really bitting good today. About eleven O'clock I returned to the car, to find that other people were begining to arrive on the beach and I had some neighbors about fifty feet from my car, they eyeballed me, and I eyeballed them back I waved, they SEPT EMBER 1970 In San Antonio Follow the flashing red arrows to ... \l The Original Sunday Happening KEG PARTIES 4-6 PM EVERY SUNDAY DRAUGHT BEER FAGGOT FARE LIVE ROCK MUSIC FRIDAY, SATURDAY, & SUNDAY DANCING ON THE PATIO _______ \& waved back, and came over to see what I was doing. Tom and Bi 11 were their front names, and Tom was from Canada, and Bi 11 was from Ohio. They had met in the Navy, and had come to Houston to look for work. Th is was their first visit to _Galveston, and the beach. Being ci true southern gentleman, I offered them a cold beer, and suggest that if they wou Id he Ip me put up my cabana, the three of us could at least have a place to get in the shade. Not long afterwards, ropes taught to each car, it looked I ike the Arabes had pitched camp, and settled down for a long stay. Tom asked "if he could help run the crab lines, which I agreeded to, and after a few -'"' minutes of explanation, he felt that he knew as much about crabbing as I did, and sure 'nuff he did! The two of us worked the lines for about thirty minutes with some success, and then returned to camp site. "How about a crab boil?" And a few minutes later, with Coleman Stove, and fresh water and crab boil, we would soon be ready to eat. Again after the crabs were boiled which only takes about twenty minutes, I gave instruct­ions on how to crack them, and eat them, and what to throw away: So with a bottle of sauce I had prepared at home, the three of us began to eat. After the first crab had been picked clean, the two new friends had become quite apt at the art. Tom said he had only seen pictures of our type of crabs, but had never eaten any. PAGE 23 Bi 11, on the other hand had eaten can coob, and those certain type of coffee stuffed ones. Fingers licked, they said they had enjoyed them, and it was a experience for the both . It was a beautifu I day, hot and a nice breeze was blow­ing. We settled down to get better acquainted. Bi 11 got a little too much sun, and Tom was browning very nicely, as he had started early in the year under a sun lamp. As the afternoon wore on, several of my friends came by and had a beer with us, and my ole pool playing buddy, Ed, stopped too. Small world, Bill and Ed had known each other in the Navy, and spent a great deal of time tel ling ole sea stories ... About four thirty, I decided that I had enough sun, and with the help mow of the four of us, we packed our tents and silently stole away into the sunset, however, we did plan to meet that evening at Ed's, and make the rounds, as the two yankees did not know too m0JIY of the good spots to go. So if you ever see my I ittle blew car pulled in backwards on the beach, and I have had any luck crabbing, stop by and have a cold beer with me, if not these, just stop· by, thus another day in my place in the sun, Pl ECE, CheChe: OPEN 'TIL 2 AM 722 So. St. Mary's (Between Durango & Alamo) San Antonio, Texas 78204 PHONE: 225-2330 PAGE 24 SEPTEMBER 1970 PORTRAIT OF A MODEL (see cover) In recent weeks, Houston's Don Furrie was able to capture in one of his most famous collection, o portrait of the very famous "Nude" model, Troy McDonald. Only this time in clothing, I guess even this reporter would not recognize Troy, in clothing. Of course this isn't really true, many Houstonions hove no doubt come across Troy, who when not modeling or in o magazine or even doing a movie would be known as and really is Michael Anthony or just plain Mike as he prefers. Mike hoi Is from Los Angeles, and at the tender age of 18 holds and is the active Vice President of A & A Bookshops Incorporated. A & A have shops here in Houston, and Mike has made his home here, when asked how he has enjoyed living in our fair city, Mike replied, "The Gay scene in Houston is Wow! really out of sight, they con keep old Los Angeles ... A & A of course hove quite o number of book stores in California, which forces Mike to journey back to the coast on many occas­ions. Mike, in the post three years has appeared in 123 magazines, 2 major motion pictures and 21 short subjects. We asked Mike what was his own true attitude to Nude modeling, and he rep I ied, "wel I I guess since I was born that way that must be the way I was supposed to look, I sure can't complain, my earnings as o model hove financed several corporations that I om now in­volved in, and I guess if people dig me I should be f I ottered.'' Mike is now engaged in o new sound color production due to be released in December. The story line is rather familar to real life, port of the production is being filmed in Houston with segments toking place in four ports of the country. Its all about a runaway 17 year old who ends up on the corner of many famous U.S. corners, and discovers hustling is not really the thing he likes most, the film will hit lightly on the drug scene and promises to end in o very unusual way. Unlike many other satires that hove played our theatres in recent months. In this production Mike Plays big brother to a 12 year old runaway, while trying to solve his own problems. He becomes involved with many different characters in many different ways, and if we tell you more it would spoil its climatic ending. While in Houston, Mike prefers to look over the city from high atop the Palace Club, shoot pool at Scene l, reol ly digs the steaks at the new Bullseye Club, (wh ich has recently burned), and digs the pin ball machines at "Granny's" . . . When asked what he enjoyed most, Mike rep I ied, "man I dig going to my dentist, the gos he uses really puts me way out, and since I hove been in Houston, I have been to the dentist more times than in my entire life, like Ronnie really knows hot to turn you on. When not tripping out on Ronnie's gas, Mike spends most of his time at 1312 W. Alabama, home of A & A Book­shops, and always welcomes a visit from his many fans.
