Your visit to The Club Houston that Monday evening could prove to be an opportunity for you to do some prejudging. There have been several entries for the contest. However, contestants can still enter by contacting Lynn at the Club Houston, 2205 Fannin, or Gene at the Farmhouse. There is no entry fee, but pleast enter before Friday midnight, Aug- ust 24. 22 O 5 Fannin Wh ere 'Bust' at TJ.'s Were Bob Cappell At first, the story was TJ's was raided, and that people were indiscriminately hauled out for patronizing a Gay joint. Of course this talk was generated by unknowing persons gleeful about repeating unfounded rumors. However, after a conversation with Margaret, the owner, the facts unfolded as follows. Apparently, the "TEA ROOM" Queens used to fornication in movie houses, truck stops, back alleys, etc., decided that TJ's seemed a likely place for their covert acts, and because of an understating problem which precluded adequate supervision over the rest rooms, they were used for pthe patrons animalistic tendencies. According to the owner, "the charges have been dropped against those who were engaged in what at the time of the arrests seemed to be overt homosexual acts." Unfortunately, this place, long a monument in Dallas as a cruise bar, and has equally shared the reputation of the same goings-on in the Tea-Room for some time, has not reached the ears of Margaret until this unfortunate arrest scene. The Dallas police, long tolerant of hand-holding, hugging, kissing, dancing stated, "the lounge had often been warned about this, and that an arrest would be made if such practices continued.'' One of the police detectives questioned stated, "arrests could have been made long ago if just 'looking' or even just 'fondling' (which is illegal) was going on, and that warnings could be issued. But the acts viewed by arresting officers were of such a nature that arrests could not be avoided." The lounge, as a whole, enjoys a relatively clean reputation with the Dallas PD., and it is hoped that TJ's will once again regain its popularity by reminding its patrons to leave sex for the bedroom. Margaret has personally been spending time supervising the "T-Room" activities in order to avoid future violations. Love What the hell, I don't know— YOU "Where were you when the lights went out" is the sign that appears in the entry of the Hi-Kamp. That refers to the other night when a power transformer blew out and the lights went out. Contrary to popular rumor, Ronnie HAS paid the light bill at least, and sabatoge was not the cause. It was an overloaded circuit and business was back to usual the following evening. SPEAKEASY Plush Formerly the Silver Helmet, the Speakeasy on Denton Drive cut-off in Dallas is aptly named, for it is one of the few bars in this city where the noise from the sound system allows easy conversation. This might account in part for its success. Al and Gene have teamed up with Buddy and Arthur to put together a club which has personality entirely its own. According to it's Maitre'D, Sonny, the place is packed every night since he has been with the club and it's easy to see why. Constructed in tiers, with the bar at the topmost tier, the view of this large place is way out. The dance floor is lit by spots and chase-lights illuminating the name of the club. The drinks are good and served with friendly smiles alien to so many clubs now. Carpeted throughout and tastefully lit and decorated, just short of being "plush", this club will last many many years to come. The Speakeasy attracts the collegiate crowd as well as the over- thirties. I DON'T WANT THE PAST Let's not go to places that I've been with another lover. I might drink from a glass his lips has touched and I'd surely know it. To be reminded or the past would cause you. to be out of my thoughts, maybe only for a moment, but when we're together I want to think only of you. Page 14
