Transcript PRE-GAME WARM-UP SATURDAY & SUNDAY AFTERNOONS 1 TIL 4 P.M. BLOODYS, GREYHOUNDS, & SCREWS sot SUNDAY - 8:30 P.M. SPECIAL SHOW "STATE FAIR MUSICALS" THRUSDAY NIGHTS AMATEUR NIGHTS (with CASH prizes) GUYS WIN Polke and Althea Oueen Saturday September 24th was the advent of the Annual Volley- Bail game tossed by a group of prominent Houston gays. Mason Street comes alive with the sights and sounds of both segments of our society. It's probably the most cordial of any event that includes both guys and girls in good-hearted andhigh spirited fun and rivalry. Lots of good cold beer is distributed and with the entrance of four brightly clad boy(?) cheerleaders along with the girls team jogging in under the flame of a somewhat dubious Olympic torch the festivities were off with a rousing start. It's hard to tell who had the most fun. Boys watching boys. Girls watching girls or mixtures of both. Needless to say both teams played to win and by half time the b^ys were definitely outclassing the girls in the athletic arena. The threatening weather did nothing, to dampen the spirits of either ,team. Half time is always the high light of the show and this year was no exception. Making their entrance in open convertables the homecoming court was no less than astounding and just slightly colorful. The coronation ceremonies were a riot and this year's winner was Althea Gibson. Always a maid and never a Queen, Althea finally made it to the top after several years of stiff competition. The less said about the Queen's costume the better. Half time activities also included music by the Marching band that elected to sit it out this year and by rousing cheers of supporters of both teams. Along with a couple of talented baton twirlers doing their thing and doing it very well. Writers of the half- time script are to be congratulated and the hosts and hostesses can rest assured that everyone had the time of their life. They really know how to toss a party. The guys ended up as champs and the girls were good sports about the whole thing. It really isn't important who won the game since it's all in fun anyway but the spirit of unity did overpower the whole outing and that is whats important. Post indicted Following the above which appeared in the Houston Post on Friday, September 22, the following letter was received at the Post. It is reassuring to learn that the Houston Police Department, with 26,219 reported burglaries in 1971, only 2,727 of which were cleared by arrest, much less by conviction, still has the time and resources to assign at least two of its highly skilled and trained officers, as well as the secretarial staff to prepare the necessary offense reports and charges, to arrest Richard Anthony Mayes (Post Sept. 22) on the steps of the police station for dressing in female clothing. All aside from the problem which a Scotsman in kilts might encounter in our city because of this diligence of the vice squad's expertise in determining sex by the nature of clothing, it would seem to me, as a taxpayer, that the police could be more productively employed in seeking out thieves and burglars, who generally do not work on the front porch of the police station and who represent more of a public inconvenience than a man wearing a skirt, if he , is a man, medically speaking. May I also suggest that the editor who chose to give 80 column inches to this pathetic story (including a four-column cut) needs to have his news judgment reevaluated, particularly in the absence of any apparent inquiry by the reporter about this gross waste of police manpower . . . William F. Walsh That story quoted Richard Anthony Mayes: "The biggestprob- lem is trying to educate people about transsexuals.'' You seem to be one of the people he was talking about. Thank you for writing. - Editor. JOEY DAVITT and PAUL BACH star in Pal Rocco's film sequence for the all-gay New Yi television show. Pat appeared on the show in person just before leaving for his European f making session. Joey and Paul proved to be a perfect combination for the filmed sequence the show, and already the producers are receiving mail about them. City's report on transvestism almost ready City health director Albert Randall said Wednesday he is nearing completion of a transvestite report for city councilmen after a second appearance by transsexual Richard Anthony Mayes before the council. Mayes asked councilmen three months ago to issue cards to permit true transvestites the freedom of dressing in clothes of the opposite sex. The council told Dr. Randall to compile a report on the subject. Mayes, who says he is required to dress as a woman for a year before undergoing a sex change operation, had one transvestite charge dismissed in court recently. He was arrested for the seventh time as he left the courtroom in a dress "If you think I can be harassed until I leave town, you're wrong," he told councilmen Wednesday. "I love Houston and I will stay." Mayes, who goes by the alias of Toni Rochelle Mayes, said information on the conditions of transvestism could be read in a couple of weeks. He said he was expecting action by the council within that time. Councilman Frank Mann accused Mayes of being a publicity seeker. "Go ahead and lead a funny life -- you can get your operation with all the publicity," Mann told Mayes. Mayes said the* only publicity involved was in trying to inform the public of the plight of transvestites. Qod SKoi/GsOjou^T: ~-i<wem ._..Qo<Qo<UJ<!
