Transcript tM JcuvA c^ S/eaemce 2613 MILAM 2 p.nj HOUSTON, TEXAS 4 a.ig. fine ficd - imfwfated tmned- erne/ tkwJcb ~§~ Jacket Required -§-. 8 'til 12 MAUGHAM ON THE MAUGHAMS MAUGHAM ON THE MAUGHAMS "Overshadowed, queer, alcoholic, I should have been a complete failure. To this day I am still surprised when the critical or financial success of one of my novels, or plays, or films in various countries would seem to suggest that I am a success. But I am not a success in my own eyes for reasons which this book will certainly reveal." The book is Escape From The Shadows - - An Autobiography - (McGraw-Hill, $8.95). Its frank, outspoken, bitter and immensely talented author: Robin Maugham. The shadows in the title: that of his father, Lord Chancellor of England, and the shadow of his uncle, Somerset Maugham. "My story is of a lonely child," writes the brilliant author of The Servant, The Second Window, and other memorable works. "It deals with an adolescent who was more attracted towards his own sex than towards girls, yet who was so imbued by the strict upper-middle- class conventions in which he lived that he was stricken with guilt by his homosexual desires and tried to make himself normal -- and at times succeeded." The war years made Maugham realize that he was predominantly homosexual, he further reveals, and "the guilt of that realization turned me to drink .... My life has been a struggle to cope with my homosexual passions, a struggle to deal with my desire to drink myself into oblivion." It has also been, of course, much more: the Cambridge student, the Libyan Desert tank bat-, tie hero who was mentioned in dispatches for gallantry under fire, the writer who abandoned the Bar to devote himself to literature also emerge from these pages. Dallas Girls Form D.O.B. The oldest Lesbian organization Nationwide has come to Dallas with the formation of a local chapter this year. The Daughters Of Bilitis meets the multi-facedneeds of Lesbians through rapsessions, united front action, counseling, social opportunities, a library, etc. The need for such an organization is very apparent by the response evidenced at the first meetings. Outreach and activities will develop as the women involved express their needs and then work together to meet them. Although a Lesbian organization by definition, the Dallas' chapter has established an open door policy for any woman defining herself as such regardless of sexual orientation. The group is presently operating under a loosely structured format which allows all women to participate and share leadership roles. Members presently meet twice a month on first and third Fridays. First Friday meetings are defined more as action sessions where various projects and business are discussed and worked upon. These meetings are held at 8 p.m. in the MCC Community Center at 3834 Ross. The third Fridays are given over to various consciousness- raising and rap sessions, speakers, exchanges with other groups, etc. and the meetings are held at 2001 Bryan, Bryan Towers, Suite 290, 8 p.m. Women attending these sessions may park free across from the Federal Street entrance (the only one unlocked at night) and sign in under any name they wish to use at the guard station, indicating that they are going to the Women For Change (WFC - a straight women's lib group) offices. Contrary to the misconceptions of many, Dallas DOB is not anti- male. The concern is to meet the needs of women in a free atmosphere and where inequities are existent to bring these to light and dispel them where possible.

I am 17 and have never felt anything for a girl. I kissed one, but felt nothing. But I have felt something for one of my best friends, who is a boy. Every time I am near him I get this wonderful feeling. When I don't see him I am sad. But I have not had any physical contact with him. I told one of my other friends about him and he said I might be half boy and half girl. When I was little I loved dolls. I still love stuffed animals. I have two. Please help me. I can't afford a psychiatrist, so please don't recommend one. -- Mixed Up in Mississippi. A. Ignore what your other friend told you. He has no qualifications for judging or advising you. It is not unusual for a boy to think highly of a male friend and to miss him when he is absent. Love is a beautiful thing and it is possible for boys or men to love each other in ways that have nothing to do with sex. Also many teen-age boys like stuffed animals--some even collect them. You will probably find a girl later who will appeal to you. Don't consider yourself a homosexual until and unless you have more evidence. Why not have an intimate conversation with your school counselor or minister? Either, if you seem to need help and really cannot afford it, can refer you to come community agency for counseling. Sex Reform Argued Bonn, Germany -- West German lawmakers are debating a package of legal reforms that would liberalize outdated sex laws but crack down on television violence to protect minors. Provisions of the bill include lowering the permissible age limit for homosexual acts between consenting males from 21 to 18, permitting the now restricted sale of pornography and lifting an outright ban on such activities as wife- swap ing. The amendment would still permit prosecution of pimps and brothel owners. Another provision would permit pornography to be published and sold to anyone over 18, with the exception of films and literature with sadism, bestiality and child molesting.
