Transcript Dec. 16,1983 / Montrose Voice 3 Avoid the Crowds; Make this a Montrose Christmas By Hollis Hood With Christmas just around the corner, there is usually the last mad dash of last minute shopping. If you don't feel like braving the shopping center (crowded during the year and insufferable during the holidays), try your neighborhood first; there are many gifts in store. TLC on Alabama has lots of ornaments for late tree-trimmers and is running a special on bell-shaped tree lights. Among favorites for trim this year on packages or trees is "The Bear in the Box" and the gold or glass ornaments. For under the tree, the store has a Christmas Choo Choo, a small train with Santa as passenger which can run on a track placed on a tabletop or under the tree (about $25.) TLC also has many specialty items, plus dozens of cards for every occasion and reader, including a gourmet dog snack, festive Christmas glassware and mugs (also on special) and all kinds of interesting books, such as a manual on how to be butch. Wilde 'n' Stein on Westheimer is also a good place to check out books for the readers on your Christmas list. In stock Charles has The Color Purple, a Pulitzer prize winner by Alice Walker, Waylon Flowers' biography of Madam, and Torch Song Trilogy, AlwayB popular are calendars, particularly this year the Working Out calendar, he said, which runB under $10. Wilde 'n' Stein is one of the few places that will have the new gay monopoly game for Christmas, and this game is reputedly a winner. It includes places like Montrose and Cedar Springs in Dallas on the board, and players purchase tubs instead of houses for their properties. (The game sells for right at $20.)

This year folks seem to be looking for less expensive ways to show their appreciation, he said, and he has something in every price range, from boxes of wine at $20 to specialty liquors at less than $10. Waugh at Waugh and Welch or Cobweb Liquor on Westheimer should be on the list of where to purchase libacious holiday cheer. For the morning after, give a gift of coffee from the House of Coffee Beans in Rice Village. It Blocks everything for the coffee or tea drinker and will mix special blends as well. You'll know when you're close because of the aroma that prevades that part of the shopping center. Possessions on Westheimer has a special item for that certain someone—a leather jump rope with brass handles. If Arizona Gays Upset at 'Hitlerism' Remark The Arizona Republic newspaper and local gay groups have threatened to try for a recall of Republican Hawley Atkinson, chairman of the County Board of Supervisors, following a remark that gays should be substituted for animals in medical experiments. Atkinson, however, says he has no intention of stepping down and will run again in 1984. In an Associated Press article, San Francisco gay leaders likened the remark to Hitlerism when Atkinson said "homosexuals and lesbians from San Francisco" should be used in experiments instead of animals. He insists it was a facetious remark which he didn't think would make the newspaper. The Arizona Gay-Lesbian Task Force threatened to mobilize the county's estimated 150,000 gays for a recall vote if he did not quit. Despite the confrontation, Atkinson says he can represent gays. "I'm against homosexuality, absolutely against it ... but when anybody calls me up who wants assistance with Maricopa County, I don't ask them what color they are, what race they are, what their creed is." that doesn't do it, prehaps he/she could use a porcelain ice bucket or a leather rag rug If you are into a huggable Christmas mood, check out the plushy offerings at Critters on Hawthorne. Everything from Elizabear to a stuffed parrot with three- foot legs is available and not that expensive. Going to Critters is a lark because of the numerous friendly little pairs of eyes that greet you from little animals peering through the forest waiting to be taken home and loved. The Gay Political Caucus is selling a coupon book for $20 that is just chocked full of two-for-one dinners, movie passes and other discounts. It would be a gift that keeps on giving, for sure. Montrose has shops that can fill every need. Check out the "really keen" clothes at Googies on California, the furniture bargains at Old Furniture Gallery on Bird- sail or Creative Stained Glass "on the curve" on Westheimer. If your special someone really needs auto repair, check out a gift certificate from One Stop Automotive Center, 200 Pierce. Sports car and English auto repair are the specialties of the house. Also, Taft Automotive, Neartown Garage and RMS are in the Montrose area to serve folks in need of major or minor auto repair. Had a hard time wrapping that tire your roommate needs for his car so he'll stop asking to borrow your vehicle? Drop by the Tire Place at Upas and Fairview. These guys will make you a good deal, and they might wrap a tire if they have time. The holidays aren't complete without going out to dinner with friends, and Montrose has a wealth of places to visit. Boulevard Cafe, 808 Lovett, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Bajas, Rascals and the Spud-U-Like will be open during the holidays with special treats in store. Or give the gift of barbeque—visit Matt Gamer's Restaurant on West Gray this holiday season or take a break at Lui- gi's while shopping. If that someone has really been good this year, maybe a cruise is in order, or at least a getaway weekend in a distant city. Call Bruce at Travel Consultants, 529- 8464, for exact pricing and departures. If you can't get away that far, try a show. Pace puts on several really good ones at the Tower Theatre, and more are coming in the new year. Tickets are very reasonably priced, and by giving pleasant entertainment, you also can give pleasant memories. Everybody always needs hair care, and Montrose is the place to get excellent service at several establishments. Gift certificates are available for the asking. So with all the shopping done, you can rest and relax the remainder of the holiday, and never have to face the freeway traffic. Have a flamboyant holiday season, do something memorable—you have all of '84 to live it down! UT-Arlington Grants Recognition to Gay Group The University of Texas campus at Arlington officially recognized the 60- member Gay/Lesbian Association of UTA recently with very little controversy or debate. Luan Green, co-founder of the group, said she was told if they ran the organization smoothly, they shouldn't have any problems. She said the move was encouraging, especially in light of recent events barring recognition of a gay group at SMU. The main difference is that UTA does not provide funding for its campus groups, while student organizations at SMU can apply to use the student fee monies. At UTA, student groups are allowed to use campus facilities and services, post notices and raise funds on campus. A nine-member committee of students, faculty and staff voted on Nov. 23 to recognize the group, with only one dissenter. This is the second such group to organize at UTA. The earlier one has disbanded. Twiggy's Getting Fat Twiggy might have to change her name to tubby, reports the San Jose Mercury News. The famous stringbean weighs 20 pounds more than she did in the 60's. "I used to have 31-inch hips," she wails, "but now I have these massive 35-inch JIM, ITS HARP ENOUGH MANN& THE WHITE HOUSE 360X5 WH0UT MMH&IIWSiraiENS FfjROuRsuyEs- I UNDERSTAND HOW TOM FEEL-1 KNOW THEy THOUGHT THIS WA&WBW'-WT its Kimm nc TDBEFraSBOff-l HWET0tOTHtS,AND IEXPECTWFE0PLE TO HELP PUT THE BESTBCEONTT' _ *~£J&2». ®o&» ntrWw rMWaaar 3U( JIM,THE STAFF HAS G0TT0STOPCALUH& THIS PIACE "THE BUNKER.* JAWOHL , MEWTuHKH/ WCOff , TWIrW
