Transcript PAGE 4 NUNTIUS AUGUST 1970 THE GYM BATHS 763-9314 220 23RD ST. GALVESTON, TEXAS The Supreme court first pronounced a constitutional right of privacy in 1965 when it struck down Connecticut's birth control law. The court said the state could not forbid married couples from using contraceptive devices. Att. Gen. Martin, in appealing, says states should be allowed to draw a line between "the mortal union of intercourse from which off spring are born" and sodomy, which he said, "often leads to distaste, revulsion and divorce." On the other side stand Buchanan, Strickland and their lawyer, Henry J. McClusky Jr. of Dallas, who is arguing that all adults, single or married, homosexual or hetro- sexual, have a constitutional right of privacy that states cannot invade. The three judges in Dallas, Sarah T. Hughes, Irving L. Goldberg and William M. Taylor Jr., seemed influenced most by the argument of a married couple, Dallas carpenter Michael Craig Gibson and his wife, Janet, that they, too, feared prosecution. The Supreme Court does not have to rule in the case. Should the high court back away, the Texas Legislature presumably would be free to write a new sodomy law aimed more directly to homosexuals and clearly protecting married couples from prosecution. Court Gets Sex Case The routine arrest of Alvin Leon Buchanan, a homosexual in a Dallas restroom last year has wound up in the Supreme Court as a challenge to all state laws making "unnatural sex acts" a crime. The explosive test case has been brought to the high court by Texas Atty. Gen. Crawford C. Martin in a defense of the state's sodomy law, found unconstitutional last January by a three-judge federal court in Dallas. The confessed homosexual is cross-appealing with a second homosexual. Travis Lee Strickland, to broaden the district court's decision into an ironclad protection of private homosexual conduct. Should the justices accept the dispute when the new term opens in the fall, all states could be barred from making any kind of private sexual conduct between consenting adults a crime. the new KON-TIKI Bigger - Better — £# tljtffl fyfi 214 23RD "ON THE ISLE
