Taser possibly police
weapon of the future
The Taser, that flashlight
like weapon which sends 50,000
volts of electricity through its
victims, is currently being employed
by at least five police
departments across the country.
According to John Cover,
president of Taser Systems, Inc,
police in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla,
Nashville, Tenn, and a subburb
of Akron, Ohio, are using the gun,
and law enforcement officials in
two Louisiana and Mississippi
towns are testing the weapons.
Last spring, as a result of
pressure from Congress and several
law enforcement agencies,
the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco
and Firearms ruled that the Taser
must be registered under the National
Firearms Act. Shortly thereafter,
sales of the weapon, which
had climbed to 3500, plummeted.
Now, however, Taser Systems
says it plans to manufacture a
new model which will make the
new model easier to market. The
modification is that instead of
looking like a flashlight, it will
resemble a pistol and therefore
will qualify as a firearm.
The Taser works by setting
off two metal hooks, which shoot
out up to 150 feet and latch onto
its intended victim. Once the
hooks penetrate skin or clothing,
they emit 50,000 volts of electricity
which knock out the victim
for approximately ten minutes.
Reports have come in from
around the country of burgularies
and other crimes committed using
the Taser. Last January,
Canadian officials outlawed the
Taser when they found it was instrumental
in a number of robberies.
Christine Jorgensen: 11After"
anrl twenty five yearsafter
Christine Jorgensen, the
sex-change pioneer, adnitted during
a recent press conference that she is
still undergoing periodic operations,
although none is as major as those
that turned the Army veteran into a
female 25 years ago.
"I recently had a little face
tuck," she admitted at a San Jose
University press conference. "I
believe in them, honey," she said
with a broad wink of lter rnascared
She said she would be 50 soon,
but didn't feel it and didn't think
she looked it.
Supporting the women's lib
movement, Christine lives alone in
Laguna Beach, California. Twice shE
has been engaged but never married.
Student bodies across the
country sponsor her lectures on
human idenity and communication.
She claims to have addressed more
than 100,000 students.
Throughout the years Christine
has been engaged in many
professions - an actress, a mimic,
an authoress (she wrote her
autobigrophy which was made into
a 1969 film), TV personality,
hatter, and college lecturer. Now
she is plal)ning to go ir,to the turban
business and she has just completed
a Scandinavian cook book and is
looking for a publisher.

Texas - OU weekend plus the
State Fair should make Big D THE
place to be this coming weekend.
A new SUPER disco is on the way
for Dallas, called Dimension 3,
but unfortunately this new ultra
modern disco won't be open for
about another four weeks. But
for all you Texas-OU bar goers
there will still be plenty to do.
Texas Tornado Tiffany Jones will
be doing a show in Big D Sunday
night and you won't want to miss
it. The Swamptrash Lounge on
Throckmorton has got to be one
of the most fun bars around. The
Tool Box at 1804 Throckmorton,
has fast become known as Dallas'
Alternative Afternoon Bar, open
7 days from 2 p.m. til 2 a.m. Of
course the Club Baths will be a
must on such a festive occassion.
In fact the whole city of Dallas
will be one from Texas-OU weekend
that you won't forget for a long
time to come.

Houston's SUPER BAR. The Inside/

known as Sunday Survival. If you
have been able to survive all the
daily Sunday specials across Houston,
stop in at Sally's and see
what surprises they have in store
for you. Ron Oruc Florists in
the 900 Lovett complex is now
ready (can you believe it?) for
the Christmas rush. So if you're
really hot for Christmas in October,
stop by and see Ron. The
new ''hard hat'' area at After

evenings you can even find a line
waiting to go up the stairs.

ON THE MATTER OF DIVORCE
IN THE BIBLE BELT
Have you ever thought you were
possessed by demons? Has your
husband ever considered that he
could be possessed by demons?
You can easilv ma)j;e your husband
believe that he is possessed by
demons, and consequently needs
your help out of it it, if:
(!) he is a Christian, Catholic,
Baptist, Episcopilian, or
it doesn't matter.
(2) he has ever been a Christian.
Guilt hangs on a long time.
(3) he has been to see The Exorcist,
The Omen, Rosemary's
Baby, Beyond the Door, Dracula,
Billy Graham, Faust, or
Snow White even.
(4) there is, around the house, a
A prominent socialite in Dallas
told me how his husband, Dave,
who was normally an incorrigible
bar queen, became fascinated with
a ouija board at a party. When the
ouija board began to spell out accurate
answers to questions about
himself and others, Dave became
livid. He determined to prove that
it was all a hoax. The next evening
my friend came home from
work with a ouija board and urged
his husband to participate. Once
again the board began to predict
that Dave would become an alcoholic
and experience the passive
end of anal intercourse until his
rectal cavity hemr.iorraged and he
wasted away" from dysentery. To
avoid this, he was told, he would
have to abandon the gay life and
perform cunnilingus on a septuagenerian
woman in a nursing
These prophecies continued.
His personality began to change
radically. He stayed at home Jnd
drank buttermilk. He stayed away
from the bars, venturing in only to
It's becoming more and more
amazing every week how we manage
to come up with such beautiful
guys living in Texas to take over
the cover and center fold.
But what seems even stranger
is that very few of them arenative
Texans. Such is the case with
this weeks cover boy, Gene Gillis.
Gene is or igina lly from Tulsa,
Oklahoma, but has been living in
Big D for the past few months.
That' is until our infamous Rhoda
Blablitt caught his go-go act at
the Swamptrash Lounge in Dallas.
That's the one with " no class - -

pick up copies of the Nuntius, being
too cheap to take out a subscription.
He continued to pressure his
lover into sessions with the ouija
board. My friend was delighted,
and immediately called up some
Greek friends who were believers
in demonic possession.
Finally one evening while they
were asking the ouija board questions,
it spelled out that they would
no longe have to use the board; the
spirit would give guidance directly
through Dave's husband.
My friend immediately fell into
a trance and a voice - - like Shirley
Temple's -- spoke out of him.
The spirit which was a demon, re-iteritated
all the things previously
spelled on the board and told Dave
that it was time for him to leave
for the bar and his mission of destiny.
Shortly afterwards a friend told
the socialite that hal Lindsey was to
be in town speaking on the rise of
the occult. He persuaded Dave to
come with him to the meeting, and
they were shocked to find that they
were invoked with demons through
the initial contact with the ouija
They obtained a copy of The
Late Great Planet Earth, and Dave
read it. As a result he renounced
his involvement with demons and
asked for an exorcism. The socialite's
seven Greek friends came
to administer the rites of exorcism
dressed in priest's habits. They
got Dave plastered on Everclear
and then fucked him one at a time.
for seven days and seven nights.
As a result, Dave underwent a
colostomy and went insane shortly
thereafter. Now he takes his dumps
in a plastic bag tied around his
waist and spends his time cutting
out paper dolls in the state hospital.
He has sex with a seventyseven
year old woman there .
The socialite has all of his
money, the house, the car, and
the wirehaired terrier. He visits
Dave onve a month at the hospital
in Austin. He has a houseboy, who
is well endowed, and a Swedish
chauffeur, who is over six feet tall
and built like a brick shit-house.
The socialite is quite happy, and
doesn't regret at all the tricks he
pulled on Dave with the ouija board.
He reports that Dave is happy too.
