Transcript The POST REPORTS & PRINTS .MISLEADING & OFFENSIVE COPY It is most fortunate for the public who rely on the newspapers for information as to what is happen­ing in our city and state that all reporters are not as backward and ignorant as those employed by THE HOUSTON POST. Pete Wittenberg covering the Wayne Henley story for THAT paper has and does repeatedly use the phrase "homosexual mur­der ring". Is this man accurate in his reporting - does he know that one psychopath and two mixed­up young boys do not in any form constitute a "ring". Kathy Lewis being a follower of the above Pete Wittenberg was not original in her story, the POST EXCLUSIVE where Brad Yates, one of the victims brothers told her that Corll passed out calling cards. In this article she also used some inaccurate and not original phrases -- "Corll was the alleged ringleader of the 'homosexual murder ring' ". The following letter was sent to the HOUSTON POST: The HOUSTON POST Houston, Texas 77001 Att: Pete Wittenberg Dear Sir: Once again in today's Post you have used the phrase "homosexual murder ring" in your report on the Henley trial. The term "ring" applied thus . generally refers to persons engag­ed in criminal activity in some degree of organization and with specific intent of monetary gain. To use the term in describing the actions of one lone psychopath with two mixed-up teens as ac­complices is a bit unrealistic. Even more intolerable is your continued reference to it as a homosexual ring. Such a psycho­pathic pattern is most assuredly just as rare and just as intoler­able to homosexuals as to everyone else. The phrase "homosexual mur­der ring" as applied to the Dean Corll killings is sensationalistic; but it is inaccurate, misleading, and offensive to your thousands of homosexual readers. Since you will no doubt be covering the trials for some time, please consider re­wording of your background mat­erial. Thanks for your consideration. Should we continue to support a big time newspaper using a 1950 approach for headlines, through careless wording, misleading con~ cepts, and terms which have been regulated in their meaning? The term homosexuality has been re-classified by the American Psychiatric Association to "Sex­ual Orientation Disturbance" - - The HOUSTON POST approach to this story - which is of national interest is to bait the public, sway a jury selection, and to pre-judge a trial case. Does Dean Corell represent homosexuals or a mad man? Is the POST advocating a 1950 Mc­Carthy witch hunt? Should all left handers, shadowless people, and heterosexuals that vear from the norm be exterminated before they can lay their eggs and hatch a new generation of sex-thrill killers? Is Dean Corl! representative of the American heterosexual broken home????? Come on HOUSTON POST! Tell us what are you trying to say. Do you want to classify this tragic story as typical of anything we want to call American, Texan, or Houston? What group do you want Corll to represent? Should he represent any group at all? YOU printed it! Don't you have an answer? Should the homosexual stand by after the strides a few have made for ALL in the past FEW years and continue support of an award winning newspaper, a product of the family of our current Lt. Govenor of this great state, and remain SILENT! HENLEY TRIAL STARTS Pretrial hearings into the Hou­ston Mass Murders began Jan. 14, 1974 int the court of Dist. Judge William M. Hatten. Defense att­orneys apparent tactic is to show Henley made statements in the case without the benefit of an attorney to counsel Him. The multiple slayings came to light when Henley admitted kill­ing Dean Corri the night of Aug. 8, 1973 during a paint sniffing and sex party. Henley claimed he killed Corri in self defense & the district attorney's office has supp­orted this claim. Henley is accused in six of the multiple slayings of 27 teen age boys. Mrs. Mary Henley was the first witness. Her son was unable · to speak rationally and was "go-ing to pieces." she said. Henley's lawyer asked a delay in his murder trial, but Dist. Atty Carol Vance said he opposes any postponements. Jury selection is scheduled to begin Jan 28. An early witness, Ed. Pegelow, one of Henley's lawyers testified that Pasadena police prevented him from talking with Henley while they completed an interview with him. Henley's statements are crucial because there are no witnesses to the slayings other than the accused. Pasadena Detective David • Mullican testified Wednesday. Henley gave his statements volun­tarily and claimed he was "rel­ieved to get it off his chest" Mullican said. David Owen Brooks, 18, a friend of Henley, charged in four of the slayings, took the witness stand Thursday 1.18 but would only give his name. Will Gray Attorney for Elmer Wayne Henley said that Henley will probably testify Wed 1,23. PSYCHIATRIC TURNAROUND-- The diagnosis of homosexuality as an illness has been the corner­stone of oppression for a tenth of our population. It has forced many gay women and men to think of themselves as freaks. It has burdened their families and fr­iends with fear and guilt. It has been used as a tool of discrim­ination in the private sector, and in the civil service, military, imm­igration and naturalization service health services, adoption and child custody courts. It is the rationale for perpetuating the sodomy laws of 43 states. In a single stroke, the Dec. 15 Psychiatric Assn. - vote would wipe out this oppressive tool. Though the Group for Advance­ment of Psychiatry (1966), the National Assn. for Mental Health (1970) and the American Psycho­logical Assn. (1972) have stated that homosexuality is not an ill­ness, the Diagnostic and Statist­ical Manual of the APA is the official nomenclature followed by all medical groups in North Am­erica, including the American Medical Assn. Though the APA view will be noted in the world nomenclature (ICDA), a worldwide change is not expected due to opp-osition from Soviet-bloc psychiat­rists. The substitute category (Sexual Orientation Disturbance) has been designed to prevent a few psy­chiatrists who make careers of ·• changing " homosexuals. from being drummed out of their pro­fpssion. But the shift in diagno­, i, is certain to affect the prac­l ice of a majority. And gay people themselves. no longer pressured into believing themselves sick, are likely to stage a "consumer boy­cott ·• of these psychiatrists who continue to deal with sexual orien­tation as a "problem". The APA position on sodomy law repeal should be a stimulus to action by slate legislatures, particularly following this year's similar statement by the American Bar Assn., and earlier recomm­endations by the American Law In­stitute, the National Institute for Mental Health and others. The APA appeal for civil-rights legis­lation should spur states and mini­< ipalities to follow the example ,.,t in the past three years by San Francisco, Berkeley, Seattle, Col­i, mbus. Toronto. Washington D.C. \ :'<D Ann Arbor and East Lansing, \l ichigan. Freud said that homosexuality ··cannot be categorized as an ill­ness," but his followers borrowed the prevailing cultural views, and the first semi-official nomenclat­ure called homosexuality "psycho­pathic per sonality with pathologic sexuality." This description per­sisted until 1968, when gay people were shifted to a new category, "Sexual Deviation." Research was done exclusively on pati3nts in psy­chiatric treatment. The breakthrough came with the· Kinsey studies of 1948 and 1953, which indicated that 25% of our _ population has adult homosexual experience and 10% are predom­inately gay. There were a lot more gays than anyone imagined and · there was no statistical correl­ation between homosexuality and emotional pathology. Then came the zoologists and anthropologists like Ford and Beach (1051), who demonstrated that homosexual behavior is common among all animal species, and that 64% of non- Western soc­ieties treat homosexuality as " normal and socially acceptable" for at least some of the popul­ation. Could all these people be sick? Dr. Evelyn Hooker's contrib­ution (1957) was to compare a group of non-patient homosexuals with a control group of heterosexuals. No correlation between homosex­uality and mental illness was found, and all non-patient studies since have produced similiar results. The Gay movement has forced the psychiatric profession to look hard at this research, and then to examine the social consequences of the illness label. In 1964 the Mattachine Society of Washington, under the leadership of Dr. Frank­lyn Kameny, issued a strong state­ment on gay mental health. Kam- ,,: -. ,, ..

Contact: Ronald Gold 212741-1010 Resolutions Regarding Homosex­uality to be Voted on Dec. 1973 By Board of Trustees of Amer­ican Psychiatric Association 1. Removal of homosexuality per se from the Diagnostic and Stat­istical Manual of Psychiatric Dis­orders and substitution of the foll­owing new category and definition: 302.0 Sexual orientation disturb­ance: This category is for individ­uals whose sexual interests are directed primarily toward people of the same sex and who are either bothered by, in conflict with, or wish to change their sexual orientations. This diagnostic cate­gory is distinguished from homo­sexuality, which by itself does not constitute a psychiatric disorder. Homosexuality per se is a form of sexual behavior and like other forms of sexual behavior which are not by themselves psychiatric disorders, is not listed in this nomenclature of mental disorders. l 1. Civil rights and sodomy re­peal statement: Wheras homosexuality per se implies no impairment in judgment stability, reliability or general social or vocational capabilities, therefore, be it resolved, that the American Psychiatric Assn. de­plores all public and private dis­crimination against homosexuals in such areas as employment, housing, public accomodations and licens ing, and declares that no burden of proof of such judgment, capacity or reliability shall be placed upon homosexuals greater than that imposed on any other person. Further, the American Psychiatric Assn. supports and urges the repeal of all legislation making criminal offenses of sex­ual acts performed by consenting adults in private. ( The American Psychiatric Assn. is, of course, aware that many other persons in addition to homosexuals are irrationally de­nied their civil rights on the basis of pejorative connotations derived from diagnos tic or descriptive ter­minology used in psychiatry, such as schizophrenia and deplores all such discrimination.

I also read the following state­I also read the following state­ment, which perhaps you missed It was issued as the APA's off­icial position by the board of Trustees. Here it is: ... "For a mental condition to be considered a psychiatric disorder considered a psychiatric disorder' it should either regularly caus~ emotional distress or regularly be associated with generalized im­pa~ rment of social functioning. pa1rment of social functioning. Homosexualtiy doe Homosexuality does not meetthese criteria. This is not to say that it is as desirable as heterosexual­ity.,, sexuals are sick, in the sense that homosexuality is dysfunction a form of aberrant behavior. My op­inion has not changed. When the APA says homosexuality is "not normal" they are saying, inadiff­all along. But labels can be danger-ously misleading, and herein lies part of the problem. lam 18 years ahead of the Am­erican Psychiatric Assn. in appealing to federal , state and local governments to stop discrim­inating against homosexuals. Illinois was the first state in the union to pass legislation dec­laring homosexuality between con­senting adults no longer a crime. To quote Dr. Frank G. Kameny, "one of the country's most influ­ential opinion makers" had some­thing to do with this giant step toward human understanding. I am currently battling to have all ques­tions relating to sexual behavior removed from employment appli­cations. I am also fighting to pro­tect homosexuals from job dis­missal or demotion. And now about the "sick" label. In my opinion, the heterosexual who is at war with himself, abuses others, engages in orgies, excess­ive drinking or drug abuse is sicker than the homosexual who is at peace with himself and is a procuctive member of society. P .S. In May 1972, I received the Robert, T . .- M~rse Award f .. r "outstanding contribution to the public's under-standing of psychi­atry." I consider this one of my most meaningful citations. It was presented to me by the American Psychiatric Assn. Dear Abby: Thank you for trying to get parents to accept their homo­sexual children as they are. Mine never would, and I almost had a nervous breakdown trying to keep it from them. Abby we need love and accept­ance from our parents even more than heterosexual children do. But how can children ever hope to ed­ucate their parents? They read your column. Can you help? Gay and Hurting Dear Hurting: Perhaps if your parents read the classic letter Dr. Freud wrote to the mother of a homosexual on April 9, 1935, it wou1<1 help them to understand, I hope so. Here it is: "Dear Mrs.: I gather from your letter that your son is a homosexual. I am most impressed by the fact that you do not mention this term your­self in your information about him. May I question you, why you avoid it? Homosexuality is assuredly no advantage, but it is nothing to be ashamed of, no vice, no degradation it cannot be classified as an illness we consider it to be a variation of the sexual function produced by a certain arrest of sexual devel­opment. Many highly respectable indiv­iduals of ancient and modern times have been homosexuals, sev- ~I eal of the greatest men among them (Plato, Michelangelo, L•'On­ardo da Vinci, etc.). It is a great injustice to per­secute homosexuality as a crime, and cruelty, too. If you do not be­lieve me, read the books of Have­lock Ellis. By asking me if I can help, you mean I suppose, if I can ab­olish homosexuality and make nor­mal heterosexuality take its place. The answer is, in a general way, we cannot promise to achieve it. In a certain number of cases we succeed in developing the blighted germs of heterosexual tendencies which are present in every homo­sexual in the majority of cases it is ~o more possible. It is a question of the quality and the age of the individual. The result of treatment cannot be predicted. What analysis can do for your son runs in a different line. If he is unhappy, neurotic, torn by C!)n­Oicts inhibited in his social hfe, analy~is may bring him harmony, peace of mind, full efficiency, whether he remains a homosexual or gets changed. If you make up your mind he should have analysis with me (I don't expect you will). He has to come over to Vienna, I have no intention of leaving here. However don't neglect to give me your ans­wer. Sincerely yours with kind wishes Freud'' . LETTERS to the EDITOR Dear Mr. Frank, . I rarely resort to writing lett­ers to the editor, but recent local newscasts compell me to do so. As a homosexual I am appaled by local TV and radio stations referral to the Dean Corll mur­ders as "homosexual murders." Surely, in our enlightened age, and in the light of the recent class­ification by the American Psychia­tric Association of the term "homosexual" the media knows or should know better. . Let's do our homework, boys m the newsrooms. Sam Dewitt Dear Sam, . We are in accord - - - what radio and TV stations are you referr­ing to specifically? Mr. Phil Frank, I am writing to you because I am unable to get through the cen­soring devices of my daily paper - - The Houston Pi:>st. I am pro­testing both to you and to my S~ Representative, Ron Waters, fo the Houston Post printing art­i es regarding the tragic Dean Corl! murders. The Houston Post calls this "homosexual murder ring". What right do they have to make such terrible judgements? Are we all murderers? Do we operate killer rings or advocate such practices? What right do they have to include Dean Corll in our midsts? Help me brothers and sisters to educate the Post. Call that switchboard that circulation num­ber and fil~ those daily letters to the editor in your local mail box. You can use your closet phones and names, but ACT. You silent majority - - what are you doing to stop the Houston Post from re--educating a public that at one time was listening to our problems.Now they are calling an unbelievable horror story a ."homosexual murder ring". At least slip an arm out of your closet to the phone stand and whisper your plea. I'll listen to you. And believe me, enough whis­pers combined will be a roar and shout that will drown out the presses of the daily Houston Post grind. Use that phone - - - mail --- Use it Now! Sincerelv. Bill Kemp Dear Bill, We'll help all we can but alone it is difficult. Ed. Box 999 Elmore, Alabama 36025 Dear Sirs; Some time ago I wrote to you for help and I was not refused so I write to you in hopes that you can give me help again-since I know of no one else I can write to. I am a gay prisoner in the Ala­bama Penal System. Hopefully I will be released from prison within the next two months. My purpose in writing to you is in hopes of obtaining some inform­ation from you. It has been almost a year since I saw a copy of the Nuntius. So I do not really know what is going on in Houston as far as Gay Life is concerned. I would really appreciate it if you could help me and send me a few of the latest past issues of the Nuntius so that I can re-famil­iarize 'myself with Houston and what is going on there as far as the bars and activities. This would really be a great help to me. Also, I would l~ke to know if per­haps any agencies have been or­ganized in Houston that could help . me find a job upon my return from prison to Houston. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I do not have any money with which to pay you for any past issues of the Nuntius, but I will be more than glad to pay you for them as soon as I am back in Houston and work­ing. I will be looking forward to hear­ing from you in the near future. Love, Peace and Hope, Kenneth Neil Davidson Dear Kenneth, Look for copies of the Nuntius in the mail soon. We are happy to report the formation of a new group called Redstone. The ser­vices they are to offer will be beneficial to you I am sure. You can contact them at this time through John at the Round Table, 528-8477 or by calling John at his residence 861-2776. We hope this helps some and there is no charge for the papers. Editor. Dear Phil: It seems lately that just about everybody and his uncle is going around talking about starting an­other Gay newspaper. I'm one of them ... and I am. After giving it several months tho­ought and about a month's work so far .. I'm off with the project. There are those who say this area is not large enough for one Gay newspaper, let alone two or even three. I disagreeandthinktheHou­ston/ Dallas/San Antonio/New Or­leans Gay communities can supp­ort two papers. The competition will · be good for all concerned. Contact will be sitting side by­side with the Nuntius on the news­stands in February. Sincerely, Henry Parker Publisher Dear Mr. Parker, Much - much luck and will be looking forward to seeing Contact. Would like very much to "retire" the Nuntius and perhaps we can work out something. Phil Frank Dear Phil, On 9/ 26, the photographer who advertises with you regularly, did 10 shots of me for $10.00 at a local motel, as he had dropped by the house without talking to me, only my wife ... Anyway he said the photos ( which I wanted for pos­terity) would be ready 10/ 1 and I have not heard from him. I made the check out to 91111111P Since I recently lost my position of 12 years for (in jest) saying "Nigger" have I now gotten into another mess. or, do you even know this guy. It doesn't worry me too much as my wife knows my tale & there is no one to blackmail--but would like the photos. The JI H people in Chicago loved your birthday piece as did all mv relatives · who received one on my birthday 9/ 16. Sincerely B.D. Dear B.D. You should have your photos by now. Phil Dear Phil, Thank you on the articles pub­lished on the October issue on my leaving Houston. Certainly made me homesick reading about what is going on in Houston. I wanted to thank you and Houston for mak­ing me feel so wanted - either· as "Buddy the Go-Go Boy" or . "Mr. Cher Bono" . My thoughts are with you, the Nuntius & Houston and I look for­ward to my return. Yous, as the editor of the Nuntius are doing a beautiful job of keeping Houston & other cities informed as to what is happening within our society. I thank you, and I'm sure Houston does too!! If they don't then they should be here in Omaha, where you have to rattie ciosets to see if there are any sisters around!! God bless you, and I hope you and your staff and all of our gay friends in Houston have a very Merry Christmas. Cher P .S. You could send a copy of the Nuntius . Doug forgot to this month. C.B.

The two men came in the bar at ten minutes to one and stayed long enough to rob the bar of its register money as well as change and funds located elsewhere in the business. The owner of the club stated that the men had been in previously as customers and knew their way around well in order to have been able to tell them where the money was kept and have them produce it. After having robbed the bar, the men then forced the customers numbering about 40 to produce . their jewelry and_ money. :QUALITY PRINTIN . • 524-5612 • ■ CUSTOM DESIGN PR4NTJN(j'~· ■ BROCHURES & BOOKLETS ■ CATALOGUES • ■ DISTINCT/VE LETTERHEADS • ■ ENVELOPES • ■ INVITATIONS Complete type setting and layout.

Bette Midler Tops Worst Dressed List Singer Bette Midler is No. 1 on Mr. Blackwell's list of the 10 worst dressed women of 1973. No. 10 is a man: rock music star David Bowie. For only the second time in 14 years of issuing the list, Black­well included a man. The designer explained. "If they want to face the public as a woman they d.;serve to make the list." He described Bowie as "a cross between Joan Crawford and Marlene Dietrich doing a glitter revival of "New Faces." The other man who made the list in another decade is comedian Milton Berle. Berle dressed as a woman on his weekly television show to earn that title. The 1973 listalsoincludes such persons as Britain's Princess Anne and Jacqueline Onassis. Blackwell, saving his most cut­ting remarks for Miss Midler, said, "She looks like she took pot luck in a laundromat. Unlike Phyllis Diller, whoworkedatbeing bad, Bette Midler loves her scene," said Blackwell. "She is really taking it seriously. She has put the worst of nostalgia together. Nothing really looks right on her. "I don't know where she got that push-up bra," he added. "That went out years ago" He siad he judged her personal wardrobe rather than her stage costumes. The worst dressed, named by Blackwell in order of ranking from . one to 10, were: Miss Midler, Princess Anne, actress Raquel Welch, tennis star Billie Jean King, Mrs. Onassis, actresses King, Mrs. Onassis, actresses Elke Sommer and Sarah Miles, the Andrews Sisters, actress Liv Ullman and Bowle. The designer criticized Mrs. Onassis for her cas ual wardrobe. "I'd like to see her in a dress. I'm tired of $5000 worth of T­shirts," he chided. Board Orders Boys to Wear Swim Suits The Duluth school board has voted 5-3 to require boys in junior high school swimming classes to wear swim suits. Board members allocated $14,000 to buy about 5,000 bathing suits for the 2,750 boys who par­ticipate in the classes, but they said it may be next spring be­fore the suits can be distributed. Dr. Leonard D. Wheat, who opposed the requirement, said, "we pointed out that the enforced wearing of suits was no solution to the issues of prudishness and modesty because students will gapg shower in the nude." If there is no more to it than prudishness and modesty, why then do we -require the wearing of clothes in other monosexual gat­herings?" responded the Rev. David Kruell. "We are following a double standard." The controversy apparently be­gan when parents complained that the practice of swimming nude was immodest. The proposal to require boys to wear suits was made by board member Ruth Myers and has been under study for months. A poll of junior high boys showed more favored sutis than favored swimming in the nude, but a great majority indicated it was no concern to them either way. \ .. ·PIIC:. .. "'1 ll t.,.

Some 40 protesters, led by 14 Baptist ministers, were objecting to the sale of the new version of . the Bible at the Baptist Book Store here. The Rev. Bobby Flatt of the Eden Missionary Baptist Church and his followers say the Bible's text edited by Dr. Kenneth Taylor, is vulgar. Among "dirty" passages, they say, is one of the Old Testament book of Judges which talks about "sex perverts" who encircled a house and began demanding that a man staying inside be brought out " ,so they could rape him." Gay Movement Fights Stigma of Prostitution an increasingly vocal and visible homosexual community and mush­rooming pornography industry. Members of the "gay" comm­unity and law enforcement officials agree that prostitution among homosexuals is no new phenomenon It is as old as homosexuality itself. But the so-called Gay Liber­ation Movement's fight for civil rights and the exploitation by un­derground newspapers of homo­sexual prostitution has brought the "profession" into the open more than ever before. In recent months, the mass homosexual slayings in Houston and the breakup of alleged homo­sexual prostitution rings in Dallas and Los Angeles that sent call boys around the country has sent shock waves throu~h .both,,thllj "straight" an!! the 'gay cbttitnllrt­ities. A gay community fighting for social acceptance and respectab­ility has found itself on the def­ensive and forced to rebut alleg­ations that all homosexuals are either degenerates or potential mass murderers, even though most police officials, lawyers and psy­, police officials, lawyers and psy­chologists agree this is not the case. Spokesmen within the increas­ingly organized gay community maintain that male prostitution within the homosexual community is no greater a problem than fe­male prostitution in the hetero­sexual community. In fact, there are homosexuals who believe prostitution may act­ually have decreased in recent yearswith the emergence of Gay Lib and the coinciding increase in social outlets for homosexuals. Gay liberation has brought more people out into the open ab­out their homosexuality, said Don Kilhefner, executive director of the Gay Community Services Center in Los Angeles. "People don't have to resort to such clandestine operations (as prostitution) anymore," he said What then drives a male homo­sexual to become a prostitute? In Los Angeles they are called " California Golden Boys "In Dallas and San Diego they are simply known as "fellows." And in San Francisco and other major cities they may promote themselves as Essentially the same things that motivate a woman to become one. Some fall into it out of desper­ation.

Wilshire Blvd., says most of those seeking prostitutes usually want the depersonalization and lack of emotional involvement that such a passing relationship provides. They may be married with fam­ilies or businessmen or civic lead­ers who have not "come out" and openly professed their homosex­uality. Johnston said one of the most satisfying experiences of his career involved a man who wrote him a letter praising the availability of his service. "He was happily married with a 17 year old son" Johnston re­called. "He wrote that by using our service it kept him from ever making an improper advance to­ward his son something he had fought back for years." More often than not, the cus­tomer might be a young person experimenting with his sexuality or an older gay attempting to re­assert his sexuality. " The old adage, 'Nobody loves you when you're old and gay,' is true," said a 25 year old student in San Francisco whose classified ad in the Berkeley Barb describes him as " handsome, muscular and a dominant model." Prostitution in the homosexual community probably is just as stratified as in the heterosexual world. High class call boys working only on referrals look down on those prostitutes working in bath houses and massage parlors. Be­neath them come the freelancers advertising in underground news­papers. On the bottom rung of the ladder is the common street hust­ler who is sometimes lucky to make $20 a night.

(The phone number) Jus t like the more blatant ads for female prostitution that run in some of the underground media, police say they are unable to take any action on the basis of the ad­vertisement alone. In Los Angeles last year, pol­ice arrested 3,400 persons for lewd conduct nearly all of them male. While no exact breakdown by sex is available on prostitution arrests, police estimate that about 5,000 of the 16,000 arrests for that crime were homosexual males Police said they have virtually no trouble with female homosexual prostitution. Sgt. Glen Sousa of LAPD's 70 man administrative vice squad says that more homosexual prost­itution has come to the attention of police in the last couple of years as an indirect result of the more "open attitude" toward homosex­uality. "Gay Lib may bring out more latents each of whom may not have the good judgment ot handle it (his homosexuality) in a lawful manner," Sousa said. Sousz maintained that the LAPD has no men permanently assigned to the problem of homosexual pro­stitution. Police do not go into known gay bars looking for male prostit­utes unless they have received a complaint, law enforcement offic­ials stated. Instead they said, they concen­trate on public locations like rest rooms, movie theaters and such transient points as the Greyhound bus station in Hollywood. Gay leaders in Los Angeles and San Francisco agreed that law enforcement has let up some of the pressure on gay bars, though not entirely. But they still vehemently pro­tested that most arrests are the re­sult of entrapment. Sgt. Sousa denied it, saying vice officers are carefully instruc­ted to avoid "enticing" situations and attempt to do nothing that would "plant the idea" of sex in the mind of a suspect. What really concerns some law enforcement officials is what they say is an Increasing number of juv­eniles showing up in both prostitut­ion operations and homosexual movies. Los Angeles Police Chief Ed­ward M. Davis recently came out in opposition to matter from a 1969 report by the state Department of Mental Hy gene, "Another Look at Sex Offenders in California." That study of 887 pedophiles (persons favoring children as sex partners) at Atascadero State Hos­pital 65% of them from Los Angel­es County revealed that 75% were heterosexual while only 20% were homosexual. A study at the hospital about a year ago revealed no significant change in the makeup of sex offen­ders. James Moore, a consultant to the office of program review at Atascadero State Hospital, sugg- Page 6 ested that cu,·r ent laws may drive hnmosexualc:: to abus ing juveniles and young children. "Because of the social problem he might encounter by openly ann­ouncing that he is a homosexual, Moore said, a homosexual " may look to cover it up by doing so in the only place that feels comfort ­able with children. He does not have to deal with a mature adult who might question his sexual compet­ency. Ray Broshears , who heads a militant gay organization in San Francisco called Helping Hands, sees still another problem when minors get involved in prostitution. "Some of these oper ations turn into drug and blackmail s cenes," he r elated. "Pictures are taken of the kids and then when the youth threatens to quit he is told that if he does, these very embarrasing pictures might be sent home to his par­ents. Either that or they hook him on drugs so he really can't leave" On a routine misdemeanor pro­stitution or lewd conduct arrest, a first time offender usually is offered the opportunity to plead guilty to a lesser charge like dis­turbing the peace or trespassing. Although his police record will still indicate an arrest for a "sex crime" the first offender usually gets off with one or two years probation and a $50 fine. Dave Perez, head of the city attorney's criminal division, said such "plea bargaining" proced­ures at the time of arraingment was instigated about two years ago to help alleviate crowded court calenders. Repeated offenders, however especially in cases involving child­ren usually are committed to At­ascadero State Hospital, where the average stay may be 14 to 18 months. During that time no att­empt is made to convert homo­sexuals unless they seek it. "We don't encourage them one way or the other," said an At­ascadero aide, ''Our responsibiltiy is to help him develop skills to keep him from breaking laws. "We help him develop proposed state legislation which would ab­olish criminal penalties for pri­vate sex acts between consenting adults. Taking the position that homo­sexual behavior is a threat to society, the chief cited studies in 1963 indicating that "homosexuals attempt to seduce young boys." No clear cut picture seems to emerge regarding the use of juven­iles in prostitution and pornograp­hy. While some police officials believe they have seen an increased use of young boys, others maintain the figure is small and al ways has been. Probably the most recent infor­mation on the meaningful relation­ships, sex-related social skills. We just tell him children are out. What you do with consenting adults is fine." Societal pressure will continue to chase gays to prostitutes said Kilhefner of the Gay Community Services Center. Integrity /Houston States Position Enclosed is a handbill which was circulated during the weekend of December 1-2 at 28 gay estab­lishments in Houston. The docu­ment is fairly self-explanatory. Since Integrity / Houston is not principally political, the board of directors and membership wish to cla rify its motives. It was not Integrity's intention to select a single candidate for endorsement, but rather to make known to Houstons • Gay community the positions of all candidates re­garding our special interests . Faced with complete dis r egard as in the case with Hadfield, or be­gnign neglect, as in the case with Gottlieb, we must assume the worst. If a candidate will not speak to us, even through a staff worker, we cannot presume he will speak for us if elected. Houston's homophile sub­culture has legitimate interests and grievances. We are taxed to pay the salaries of civil servants, but are considered unfit for Civil Service ourselves. Our places of congregation are subject to raid on impulse and we are jailed on unfounded charges. Laws are app­lied unequally to heterosexuals and homosexuals. We have little or no appeal for discriminatory acts. We become political cannon fodder in times of moral hysteria.Careers are destroyed and family ties are severed at the caprice of those in authority. Our conscience and concern for our welfare impel us to- redress these injustices. We do not ask for special pri­vileges or favors; we ask only for the same rights and protect­ion of these rights that other cit­izens enjoy. If a political figure feels "not qualified" to address this simple proposition, he is also "not qualified" to govern the gay citizenry fairly, and is undeserving of our support. Within the constraints of our limited funds and manpower, In­tegrity plans to continue polling incumbents and aspirants to office and to make their responses (or lack thereoO known to our brethren This is an activity which is legit­imate, responsible and necessary. It reflects our desire for an in­formed electorate and for an im­provement in our general welfare. We hope it is received in this spirit.u t 'I NT I Integrity /Houston, a homophile or­ganization, invited the three lead­ing Mayoral candidates to separat­ely address the group on any topic that any candidate felt was relevant The responses were, as follows: Bud Hadfield: No response what­soever. Dick Gottlieb: An aide telephoned to say that they did not feel qual­ified to peak on that topic. Fred Hofheinz: Personally appear­ed before Integrity for an hour and twenty minutes and endorsed Gay Rights. Fred pledged equal opportunity in hiring and promot­ioms under Civil Service and an end to police harrassmentofGays. He is receptive to establishing a liaison between the police and the gay community in order to elim­inate some of the harmful mis­conceptions which now exist. He believes the Police Academy should include instruction on im­proving community relations with minority groups, including Gays , in addition to a continuing program of sensitivity training. There is only one candidate in the runoff who believes that the status quo for Houston's Gays requires improvement. Think ab­out that seriously before you vote on December 4, because it will profit you little to do so after­wards if your personal rights are violated. Voting for the candidate of your choice is your right voting is your responsibility! If you are not part of the sol­ution, then you are part of the pro­blem!

A few of the up-coming featured topics, though specific shows are not scheduled on any particular Wednesdays, will be dealing with transsexuals, trans­vestites , programs about and with the Cockettes, new techniques in sexual surgery from all parts of the globe, and go-go girls and their experiences. Says Marty, " I see this show as a possible forum for information for gays and other sexually misunderstood people. I'm interested in response from the listening audience and would like to do interviews and call-ins while the show is in pro­gress." (224-4000). THE HUMP is so called because it comes on Wednesday at the mid­dle of Marty's week. The name dates back to his college days when he went out Wednesdays at noon to get drunk and pass the hump of the week and it also seemed like a good name for a sexually oriented show . . . . "I hope some day to see bumper stickers that say Give Me The Hump." DRAG CONTESTS CANCELED Philadelphia Because of strong adverse reaction, the can­cellation has been announced of the three remaining competitions in the series of "Through the Looking Glass" female-imper­sonation contests whose ultimate winner would have received a sex­change operation. The announce­ment was made by Henri David Enterprises Lts., the contest's sponsor. A spokesman for Henri David indicated that the comments in the telephone calls and the letters ran­ged from accusations of "exploit­ation" to charges of "poor taste". Denying these, the spokesman said that the Philadelphia contest, as with all others presented by "Mr. David," as he bills himself, was in good taste and "certainly didn't offend anyone who attended." " However, " he went on," rather than alienate the community at large, we have decided to cancel the present series." The spokes­man conceded that some of the comments came from "the gay community which surprises us." Some of the callers identified themselves as being with church grops, and some said they were doctors, the spokesman said. The spokesman refused to com­ment on what would be done with re­gard to the first three winners who were selected from an entry list of 20 in the Philadelphia com­petition. While it was dismissed as a "crank call," the spokesman ad­mitted that there was a threat on Henri David's life. "However, we did not wish to risk subjecting either the contestants or "Mr. David" to any abuse--verbal or physical," the spokesman said. "Since 'Mr. David' has never had any reaction such as this be­fore," the spokesman added, "it must be assumed that the object­ions were based on the sex-change operation as a 'prize'.'' The spokesman conceded that this was a factor in the refusal of ads by some of the media. " It would app­ear that future 'drag-queen' con­tests sponsored by 'Mr. David' would be just as acceptable as they have been in the past if the prizes are less controversial," the spokesman added. The other contests were to have been held in New York City, Wash­ington, D.C., and Atlanta, Ga., and it was admitted that protests were made in those cities as well as in Philadelphia. " We hope that this matter is now closed," he concluded. -----SPE~RE;DING wi°:H rH7s .w-·--7 LUCK - SUCCESS - HAPPINESS I WORLD'S GREATEST PSYCHIC READER I ;r~:;d~'o1;•w:~:n yh:1p1:,/~d~~s~;:s~:~r' ~~= ::l~: f cnt••s to heal the sick and oiling, to remove all suffer• f !;~ ~:t1 ~:: ~~:·,o s;t:yw~l!acya~~::~r S8h"e87'~•as ,:t;t:: f ond holy woman who wi II show you with your own eyes I how she will remove sorrow, sickness and pain and all I bod luck.
