Joseph DiSabato, president of GPA, explained plans for what he called a "gay UPI." DiSabato held a series of demonstrations of the wire service at the conference. He also announced plans for "Gay Vote '82." This program will entail networking with individual GPA members across the country to "get the gay impact on local, state and national elections. We will follow candidates' results that have gotten endorsements from gay organizations or have received funding from gay political action committees." The wire service has been used for about one month by "10 or so (GPA members, including the MONTROSE VOICE) on a demonstration basis." Rapid communication of news which affects the gay community is important, he said. He cited an example that which appeared last week in the MONTROSE VOICE about the court order banning the Joe DiSabato, president of the Gay Press Association, demonstrates the GPA Wire Service for gay activists attending the National Gay Leadership Conference Aug. 13-15 in Dallas use of the word "Olympics" in the athletic games scheduled in San Francisco in September. "They put the story on the wire service in San Francisco Wednesday morning, the MONTROSE VOICE picked it up in Houston that evening, and it's in the Friday edition." National distribution of news affecting the gay community was exchanged via mail or on a publication-to-publication basis before the advent of the GPA wire service. "At least two dozen other papers have expressed an interest in joining (the wire service)," he said. Gay newspaper planned for Dallas A new weekly gay newspaper for North Texas is set to publish its first edition Sept. 10, announced the paper's owners, Henry McClurg and William Marberry. McClurg and Marberry also own Houston's Montrose Voice, a weekly gay newspaper. The new paper, a tabloid, will be called Dallas Gay News, they said, and it will be the third publication serving the Dallas gay market. The area is already served by two gay magazines: TWT, a weekly from Houston, and the bi-weekly Metro Times based in Dallas. Ft. Worth activist and 4 neighbors killed Rickey Lee Bryant, 31, a Ft. Worth Democrat precinct chairman and former nightclub entertainer under the name "Peaches," was one of five people found brutally murdered Aug. 10 in a Ft. Worth neighborhood. Police in Wichita, Kansas, arrested Larry Keith Robison, 24, Bryant's roommate, the next day. Taken back to Ft. Worth, Bryant admitted killing the five, police said. Police said Bryant and Robinson, a construction worker with a history of drug abuse and mental problems, were lovers. Bryant's body was decapitated and castrated. The throats of three of Bryant's neighbors had been cut and a fifth victim shot. Police speculated that Bryant's neighbors were killed because they could have identified Robinson. The neighbors were identified as Georgia Reed, 34; her 11-year-old son Scott, her 55-year-old mother, Earline Barker; and Bruce Gardner, 34. No motive was initially known, other than the fact that Robinson had serious mental problems and was diagnosed in 1978 as a paranoid schizophrenic, local reporters said they had learned. TV Ads Don't Sell The man who watches more TV commercials than anyone else in America doubts they have much influence over which products we buy. According to a report in the New York Times, David Vadehra spends more than six hours a day studying TV ads for Madison Avenue clients. His conclusion: people are much more likely to buy a product after clipping a newspaper coupon. He is, however, quick to point out that the $13 billion advertisers spent on TV commercials last year was not completely wasted. Commercials that leave a deep, lasting impression, he says, develop a good brand image, which is essential for its long-term success. Consumers are turned off by ads promising "bigger, better, new and improved," he says. The best ads are those that are non- rational and emotional. His consumer surveys give the highest marks to Coke's new "Coke is it," and the long-running "Be a Pepper" theme songs. Motor-Skating A Japanese inventor has added a new— and possibly terrifying—dimension to roller skating, reports New Scientist magazine. It's a motorized propulsion device that looks something like the front end of a motorcycle. All you do is start it up, and hang on for dear life at speeds up to 25 miles an hour.
