Transcript department of mental hygiene as a sex offender. In 1971 he was convicted for sending obscene litera- • ture through the mail. The three men and two teenagers who were arrested with Norman were later released without charges. FROM A LESS SENSATIONAL POINT OF VIEW - According to gay grapevine talk, the Odyssey Foundation had been in Dallas for almost a year and most gays assumed the police were aware of its existance, but hadn't bothered to close it because it was small potatoes compared to the ever increasing number of rapes, murders and robberies committed daily in Dallas. Those who claim to be in the know say the "Foundation" was merely "one man with big ideas" that didn't work. Had it been a truly ' 'nationwide'' organization, it would have operated from a plush Turtle Creek address, instead of a sleezy Cole Avenue upstairs apartment. The "fellows" were not serious . scholors seeking to broaden their education, but hustlers struggling for existance. The booklets pictured many pretty young faces, but was always obsolete, as the "fellows" were un- dependable, here today and gone tomorrow. But in at least one instance, a young man is vacationing in Europe with his "sponsor" and receiving $100 a week "pocket" money. One can't help but wonder if this raid wasn't carried out to show Dallas citizens that their police force was on their toes, so to speak, in contrast to Houston police who have received a lot of criticism for not seeing a pattern to so many boys missing from one section of town. Otherwise, one feels this is merely an instance of homosexual prostitution, hardly different from heterosexual prostitution. Wrong? Yes! But when a heterosexual prostitution ring is broken, does it make headlines? ANTI-GAY VIOLENCE, The Press, and Pacifism: a Boston report by Allen Young - BOSTON -- The following appeared on page 5 of the Boston Globe on Saturday, July 14: "Man killed, 1 hurt in Arboretum assault "By Thomas Dotton, Globe Staff "One man was killed and another seriously injured early yesterday morning when they allegedly were lured from a downtown Boston bar to a nonexistent party, robbed and beaten by six assailants and thrown into a sewer at the edge of the Arnold Arboretum. "Police identified the dead man as Jeremiah Lynch, 21, of Garrison street, Boston, and his injured companion as 22-year-old Stephen Tuscher, of Oak Street, Wayland, who was admitted to Faulkner Hospital, Jamaica Plain, O H of. © S B u © SB « MR. CLUB HOUSTON An estimated crowd ofathousand attended the First Mr. Club Houston Contest held at Gene Howie's popular Farmhouse Dance Bar in Houston, Texas. A runway and stage in the round gave everyone in the house a good seat for the show. When compared to previous Houston contests, the Mr. Club Houston competition was the heaviest, according to many. Twenty groovy guys were in serious competition for the title: "Mr. Club Houston." The judging was comprised of people from various cities across country. Two of the seven judges were Mr. Jack Campbell, from Miami, PresidentoftheClubHous- ton; and C. J. Harrington, the recent winner of the Mr. David Contest. The Texas Tornado, Tiffany Jones, was invited back from Miami to MC the Houston contest. Her talent, plus several musical numbers by Kitty Key, Mr. Connie Francis, and Mr. Ernestine, helped to complete the contest. Each contestant was scored in 1) Towel, 2) Original costume, 3) Swim wear. From these totals were picked six finalist who were given questions by Tiffany Jones to answer. After the questions, another total was reached to determine the three winners. Ayoung new face, Mr. Richard Ornelas, was awarded the First "Mr. Club Houston" title; Mr. Jimmy Choate was First Runner Up, and Mr. John Graves was Second Runner Up. All three trophies were presented to the winners by Mr. David, (C. J. Harrington, winner of the contest held recently in N.Y.C.) Each winner received a trophy, cash, and a years free pass to the Club Houston Baths. Richard will be in Miami, Florida in February along with twenty-seven other Mr. Club winners, to compete for the National "Mr. Club Bath Chain" title. As in the past, we are confident that Richard will bring back to Houston another National trophy, as have C. J. Harrington (Mr. David, 1973-74), and Mark Ambrosy (Mr. Gay U.S.A., 1973- 74). 2nd Runner-Up (J 31s nf FREE DANCING / V FREE AFTER HOURS WEEKDAYS - 2:00 p.m. - 2:00 a_m.
