Names from its Golden Age are famous and recognized for their interest in young men. Considerably less known are some words in its language which have influenced English, a few of them sexual in nature. Probably the most interesting was "sauros" meaning "lizard". Its literal sense has contributed many combined forms fimaliar to us: dinosaur, icthysauros, and so on. Strato of Sardis, however, and other poets as well, used the word figuratively. It was used as a plyful but appreciative synonym for "penis". Although it was apparently slang, it did not seem to be derogatory. The English word "lizard" is occasionally so used, but clearly the practice is very old, probably having come to English from schoolboys having to translat_e_Latin and Greek^ Another interesting word was "geiton" which meant "neighboring". It seems to have been slang for a homosexual at one time, thus Petronius later gave his gay hero the name Giton, whence the French obtained it. It also appears in the English "geitono- gamy", referring to the pollination of one flower by another growing on the same plant. Another word of note is "pug- isma" which could be loosely rendered "buttockry". It seems to have denoted stimulation by friction between the buttocks. The word was based on "puge" meaning "rump". These words gave the Greek "pugargos", that is, "whiterump- ed", denoting a kind of eagle. It is thought that this was the sea eagle, but some authorities believe it meant the bald-eagle (!). In English we derive " steatopygous " referring to excessive development of fat on the buttocks. We also have "Macropygia", the name of a large genus of cuckoo-doves. It is not certain if "puge" had any relation to pugme" which meant "first" and also named a unit of measure based on the distance from the elbow to the knuckles. It does appear, though, that "pugme" was a cousin to the name of the hero Pygmalion, whose name gave us the word "pygmal- ionism", denoting sexual responsiveness directed toward a statue. The word for first also gave us "pugnacious" and "pugilist" and ' 'pygmy". It is conjectured by John Allegro that "pugme" is related to the Accadian "bukan- nu" meaning "beater" or "stick". Greek, anyone? Terry from Tyler — AUSTIN'S NEW APARTMENT The Austin bar that many of you have come to know over the past five years entered a new era. This past July the new owners, B. K. and Keith, opened the finest bar yet in our capitol city. THE NEW APARTMENT has been enlarged and completely remolded and yet has kept the same atmosphere that has made it one of the most enjoyable and successful gay bars in Texas. A large patio was added at the front (back) of the building with the decorating and landscaping being done by customers. Just two weeks ago a new large room was added to the side of the old building and the opening of this room was coupled with the visit of Buddy, popular Houston Go-Go Boy from the Red Room, to celebrate the event. Buddy was lent to THE NEW APARTMENT by THE RED ROOM in Houston for this special event. Big nights at the bar are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but you can find a crowd there every night of the week after 8:30 or 9. The new room has become the game room for the bar and has two pool tables and foosball. Plenty of chairs are available now for those of you who want to rest between cruises and a few tables that will even make the table hoppers happy. THE NEW APARTMENT has been strictly a beer and wine bar since it, was first opened in the late 60's, but B. K. has announced that they will have mixed drinks soon to whet the appetite of all of you heavy boozers. Special events at the bar regularly include a 25£ tap beer night every Tuesday and $1.50 hamburgers and beer every Sunday from 6 to 9. Starting the first of October they have 25C Tap beer and setups from opening beer and setups from opening (4 PM) until 8 PM every night except Saturday and Sunday. Visitors from San Antonio, Temple, Waco, Houston and Dallas each weekend are taking their social hours at the bar. You'll find the bar located almost on the corner of 29th and Rio Grande, just one black from the Drag in the University of Texas area. If you have trouble locating them call 478-0224 for directions. TV First for Rocco ANOTHER "FIRST" FOR PAT New York now has the first regularly scheduled all gay television show which started last August 24th. It's a two hour weekly syndicated show, and, naturally, they called on Pat Rocco to supply the opening and closing film segments for credits and show identification. Pat went all out, and filmed kissing scenes in the middle of the streets, boys walking hand in hand through the crowds on Hollywood Blvd., andthe like. We'll be seeing a print of those sequences at our next meeting, (that is if you are in California and a member of SPREE), but rest assured that New York television will never be the same after Rocco invades with another T.V. first, (from SPREE NEWS) Page 2
