Transcript June 18, 1982 / Montrose Voice 15 Houston Data Professionals nearing fifth birthday For nearly five years, the Houton Data Professionals (HDP) have been meeting to provide a forum to share their knowledge, enhance their professional skills and establish social contacts within their profession. HDP began their operation in September 1977 and has steadily grown to a membership of nearly 100 people. In keeping with the club's goals of service, they offer their collective skills to other organizations within the community. HDP members have, as an example, provided the technical expertise necessary to help the Gay Political Caucus main tar their considerable registered voters data files. They also have speakers available on a variety of data processing topics. Recently HDP gave a reception to welcome gay and lesbian attendees among the nearly 100,000 persons attending the National Computer Conference here in Houston. The reception was well attended by persons from many locations in the U.S. as well as Canada and West Germany. Although the club is primarily a club of people in computer-related professions, hobbyists and persons who are interested in computers are more than welcome. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. For further information including the location ofthe next meeting, contact Bill at 523-6922. Airtight Tupperware may be recession proof, too Pacific News Service If the recession finds you short of cash, why not throw a party—a Tupperware Party, that is. While other businesses are struggling, Tupperware says its profits increased 15 percent last year, to nearly $250 million, and sales have more than doubled every five years since 1958. ' Juneteenth' w as the day black Texans got word ofthe Emancipation Proclamation The Emancipation Proclamation didn't reach Texas until June 19.1865. after President Lincoln was assassinated. General Gordon Granger read this document to the people in Galveston. The reading of this proclamation was the first time that the black slaves got a foretaste of freedom in Texas and it was a prelude to a jubilistic age that has become something special to most black Texans. Since that time, June 19.1865, has become known as Juneteenth. The Emancipation Proclamation became law by the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution on December 18, 1865, but by that time black Texans had already adopted June 19 as their special day of celebration. Open violence in the north greeted the proclamation and the Ku Klux Klan raised the spectre of racism and hatred against the black American. "Black Texans have much to celebrate on June 19, a celebration that all Texans can share. We must continue to let the world know that Juneteenth will always be a rallying cry for all black Texans," said Jerel Shaw, a member of Black and White Men Together, a mixed racial group of gay males.
