Transcript PAGE 24 NUNTIUS AUGUST 1970 WHAT OUTSIDERS SAY § THINK! July 11, 1970. This Saturday AM myself and two friends were in the Sizzler Steak House on Richmond just off Kirby drive and overheard some of the conversation between two very distinguished men. This was not eavesdrooping as the loudness of their voices did not make it necessary. They were seated two booths from us and there was a couple in the booth between. Their conversation was totally about the movie houses opening up in and around Houston. The bars and the activities of the bars in Houston. Their comments were something like this: "You just can't believe it!, everything is shown, they get the camera right down there and the action and all can be seen in detail. I heard of a couple of boys dressed as girls going to a club where there were some whores, they had on wigs, dresses and you couldn't tell them from girls. The police had occasion to pick up the girls and take them to police headquarters, it was not until they were told to strip that the disc, very was made." Theit tone of voice was anything but shocked, I might add the ages of the men appeared between 60 and 70 THE GYM BATHS 763-9314 ^ 220 23RD ST. GALVESTON, TEXAS the new KON TIKI Bigger - Better — More Fun than Ever 214 23RD "ON THE ISLE years of age. I thought to myself, what was this man doing going to places of this nature if he was offended by what went on. It brought to mind the recent programming on channel 13 when they were airing the morals of our city. This too was informative. The mentioned above just gave dollars worth of publicity to the theaters showing film of this type. I don't ever recall passing by one of these theaters and being dragged off. the streets to watch the films. If I want to view these films or go to these bars, that's my business and my choice. I feel the men talking should have been of the same opinion. I wanted to know if they were professional men or just what their interest was so as they left I approached them. I introduced myself as editor of the Nuntius, the Ikcal gay paper. The men introduced themselves, one was a Dr. Williams, the other an executive for an oil field equipment company. I told them that we had overheard a part of their conversation and would like to know what had stimulated their interest in the subject. Dr. Williams said that he was just repeating what he had heard at the Downtown Rotary Club. I ssked the other gentlemen and he had been to one of the theaters. My next question was about speakers etc., and was told that the Rotary had a weekly newsletter and that the meeting would be written up in this. I called and asked that one of the letters be mailed and am still waiting.
