Transcript 6 Montrose Voice / June 4,1982 Police drop libel suit against gay newspaper International Gay News Agency Two police officers apprently have dropped their $20 million libel suit against the Bay Area Reporter, a San Francisco weekly gay newspaper. American Civil Liberties Union lawyer Amitai Schwartz earlier had successfully argued that the lawsuit, as filed, did not show valid reasons why the newspaper should be sued. Superior Court Judge Ira L. Brown twice had ordered the litigants, officers Holly C. Pera and Corbett Dickey, to amend the complaint. The deadline for amending the lawsuit the second time passed without the ammendment being made. Therefore the case was to be dropped automatically, although the judge's decision could be appealed. Janice Musante, attorney for the officers, said, "We have tentatively decided not to appeal." The two police officers claimed they were libeled in a B.A.R. article that described a meeting ofthe Alice B. Toklas Democratic Club, where allegations of police brutalitay against gay people were discussed. Pera and Dickey were specifically named at the meeting and in the news story. Vandals topple Falwell's radio tower The 138-foot-high tower of a radio station operated by the Rev. Jerry Falwell collapsed when vandals cut its support wires, station officials said. This is according to a report from Associated Press. Jerry Edwards, director of operations said station WRVL-FM went off the air at 1:48 a.m. May 31, AP reported. It was reported that the station had created controversy in the area because its signal interferes with television reception in a number of homes. Asked about the tower collapse, Falwell was quoted, "Well, obviously there are those persons committed to preventing a 24-hour Christian radio station from broadcasting in the central Virginia area. AP reported that Falwell said the station had "tried very hard to work to cure the problem" of interference. But some people "simply oppose the station because it represents the Gospel, Thomas Road Baptist Church and Jerry Falwell." "We're not accusing anybody of anything, but children didn't do this." Falwell was quoted. "It was obviously well planned and calculated." The Amherst County Sheriffs Department said it was investigating the incident, and Falwell said the FBI had been called in, AP reported. Gunning for military chaplains Pacific News Service The Air Force will have to stop flying on a wing and a prayer, if atheist leader Madalyn Murray O'Hair has her way. O'Hair's latest crusade is against military chaplains, whose government paychecks, she says, violate the separation of church and state. O'Hair, who unsuccessfully tried to get Congress to fire its own chaplains, says the military should depend on off-base religious services. To fuel her fight, O'Hair has asked military officials to open the books and reveal how much they've spent on religious programs over the last 50 years.
