Transcript 30 ARRESTED IN CLUB RAID ALA's DALLAS MEET Task Force on GAY Liberation On the 24th of April, 1971, at about 1:15 a.m., the manager of the Armadillo Club was arrested with a minor and two adults at the Armadillo Club, Scotty, the manager, was charged with serving a minor and running an open saloon. The two adult patrons were charged with disorderly conduct and interfering with an officer. About ten uniformed radio patrolmen were involved in the search for minors throughout the Armadillo Club- The two adult patrons have pleaded guilty to the charges The charges against the minor and against the manager are still pending and will be adjudicated, according to attorneys for the Club. Later, at about 11:00 p.m. on May 7th, the manager of the Armadillo Club was driving to the club when he saw a large assembly of police cars at the intersection of Tuam and Baldwin. He went on to the club and immediately began a check on the minors present and while in the process of evicting one, the police arrived. About 26 uniformed and vice squad officers this time went through the club searching for breaches of the public weal. They checked IDs, licences and health cards, arresting about 30 patrons and 5 employees. Of those arrested, 21 were minors charged with possession of alcohol and 2 were adults charged with interfering with an officer. Vice Squad Officers Tello and Perez took 2 bartenders and the man running the phonograph downtown whi le Vice Squad Capt. McMinime and Vice Squad Officer Posey took Scotty, the manager and a waiter in. Charges similar to those previously filed were again made. All charges will be fought in Court, according to attorneys. However, official records show that only 9 of the minors actually have been charged. The situation concerning the other 21 minors remains a mystery as none of them have been advised of their present status. Coming out of the closet for gay people might be one step easier when a group of gay librarians carries out its educational program at a June meeting of the Americian Library Association. This group's aim is to revolutionize libraries in meeting the needs of gay people. Taking place in Dallas, Texas, June 19 to 26, the programs will coincide with Gay Pride Week. The Task Force on Gay Liberation of the Social Responsibilities Round Table, American Library Association, is planning a series of programs at the 90th annual conference of the American Library Association inDallas. One of the highlights of the week will be an open house, where all librarians attending the meeting, straight and gay, .will have a chance to get to know one another. On Sunday, June 19, for the edification of all concerned librarians, there will be a program on the relation of the homosexual to established religion. Tuesday, in an area generally featuringeommercial displays, gay librarians will give out free kisses at a "hug a homosexual" booth. That evening there will be a program on "Intellectual freedom -ordial at the University of Minnesota," with J. Michael McConnell, fired from his job because he applied for a license to marry his lover, talking on the problems of the gay librarian. Wednesday even ing will feature a program on "Sex and the single cataloger; new thoughts on some unthinkable subjects," The prejudice of libraries in providing access to materials will be discussed there. Another highlight will be the First Annual Gay Book Award which will be presented to the book recently published which presents a positive view of homosexuals and their life style. The week's activities will be climaxed by a gay dance on Thursday night, to which all will be invited. The American Library Association, founded in 1876, is the professional organization of librarians in the United States, with a membership of over 30,000. About 5,000 librarians are expected to attend the conference. The Social Responsibilities Round Table, with over 1300 members, was organized two years ago, because it was felt that the American Library Association and libraries were not responsive to the real needs of people. The Task Force on Gay Liberation was organized in Detroit in 1970 at the Annual Conference of the Americian Library Association because it was evident that libraries were not meeting the needs of gay people.
