GPC-endorsed candidates won 17 and lost six of the races in which an endorsement was made. Democrats walked away with most of the wins in most state races, but Repub­lican Bill Clements reclaimed the Texas governor's office with 52.8% of the vote. Texas Democrats winning five top statewide offices included the only two candidates in state elections to receive GPC endorsements, Jim Hightower and Garry Mauro. Margins of victory or defeat were­within 20,000 votes in most of the races and turnout in GPC-targeted precincts may have had a significant impact on the outcome of the election, according to GPC members. The victories of two "long shot" can­didates endorsed by GPC, both Republi· cans running against incumbent Democrats, were too close to be coincid­ental, according to Annise Parker, GPC president. "I would have to say our endorsement White Wins in GPC-Targeted Precincts Although he received no formal endor· sement from the Houston Gay Political Caucus, Mark White defeated Bill Cle· ments by an overwhelming margin in precincts targeted by the caucus, according to Harris County precinct totals released Thursday. At the central Montrose polling cen· ter, Precinct 34 (Felix Mexican Restau· rant), the vote was 700 for White to Clements' 210. Other Montrose pre­cincts also reported a very comfortable margin of victory for White. At Precinct38, thevotewas565-301 in favor of White. White won 667-255 in Precinct 39. At Precinct 60 (Lanier Jun· ior High School), White won 653-253. At Precinct 233 in the Greenway Plaza area, the vote was closer, but White was still the victor by 425 to Cle· ment.s' 386 votes. Another close call was recorded at Precinct 139 (Lamar High School on Westheimer) where the vote was 341 for White to 302 for Clements. Other GPC-targeted precincts outside of Montrose favored White. Precinct 123 at Colquitt and Main recorded 462 votes for White to 142 for Clements; the vote at Precinct 432 (Robert E. Lee High School, Beverly Hill St.) was 402-317. put them over," Parker said of th elec­tion of James E. (Jim) Anderson to County Criminal Court No. 4 and Mark Atkinson to Criminal Court No. 13. Anderson won by less than 5000 votes, while Atkinson squeaked by with 1453 votes over his opponent. Local gay activist Ray Hill com· mented that several of the wins "were so close that (the gay) vote made more than the margin of difference" and that most losses were so close that "at peak strength (the endorsed candidates) could have won." Hill said although the overall turnout was good in the GPC-targeted precincts, it could have been better.

" Overall turnout for the county was about 46 percent, with Montrose pre­cincts faring slightly better. The tum· out was excellent considering poor weather conditions, but at full strength the gay vote could have had double the influence in this election, Hill said. Although the election of Clements, who has close ties with ultra­conservative fundmentalist groups, could present problems with appoint­ments to state agencies such as the board of health, Parker said opposition in the legislature may be enough to offset some of the danger.

Hill said he expected Clements to make "bad judi· cial appointments" and to support a bill to make homosexual acts a felony and homophobic AIDS-related bills. Although no endorsement was made in the attorney general's race, Parker called the re-election of Jim Mattox "a tremendous boon." In California, the controversial "LaRouche Initiative," Proposition 64, was defeated by a margin of almost 2 to 1. The initiative, proposed by backers of the political extremist, called for identi· fication of AIDS victims and possibly quarantine measures. STEVE D. MARTINEZ, M.D. 1NTFRNAl..

Well, that day arrives Monday. This edition of this newspaper is our last with the name "Montrose Voice." It's been a good name, but it's time to grow and change. You are holding our 315th consecutive edition. Come Mon· day,you will haveour316thconsecutive edition. but the name be" Houston Daily Voice." I would like to explore with you the reasoning for the name change. A large percentage of our readers never were really in Montrose,of course. You, our readers, have always been spread throughout Houston What made us "Montrose," however, was the fact that you usually had to come into Montrose to find a copy of the Voice. Starting Monday, we'll deliver the Voice to your doorstep anywhere in Houston. And we'll be on sale at shops, stores and clubs throughout Houston. Starting Monday, we will be a Hous­ton newspaper (as we always really were). The word "Daily" was added to our new name to emphasize our new fre· quency. Our new name is Houston Daily Voice but we will still be the same newspaper We will still be the Montrose Voice, only now you might say we are growing up. And we will still be full of the news you want to read: especially news of Houston's gay community and news of the Montrose neighborhood. Plus we'll have general news coverage like the bigger dailies: City Hall, the courts and the crimes. Ah, the bigger dailies. Obvious ly we're not going to be a newspaper the size of the Post or Chronicle. (At least not for a few years.) But we are going to grow. There are no outside financiers or investors in the Voice. We are making this change ourselves with our own effort and limited financial means. We are going to operate within our income and grow from there. What about our internal editorial views? If you accept tht> Chronicle as a newspaper slightly to the "right" in its t>ditorial posture and the PostaH a news­paper about ''middle of the road," you will find th<• Daily Voir<--in its editor· ial presentations-as a newspaper slightly to the "left." I hope you will enjoy your new news­paper that starts Monday. We are cer­tainly goinK to enjoy bringing it you.

Organizers of the event are expecting 8000 rodeo enthusi­asts each day. That figure should pro- · duce a profit to be reverted back to community charities, the purpose of the. four-year-old service organization. Last year, the association broke even on the rodeo, and the first event in 1984 lost money, Steve Vaughan, TGRA vice president, said. Contestants for the titles of Mr., Miss and Ms. TGRA, how­ever, raised a total of $60,000 for Texas gay charities over the two-year period, Vaughan pointed out. In Houston, Montrose Clinic, McAdory House and the Montrose Counseling Center each received a portion of the proceeds, he said. The Texas Gay Rodeo is one of a series of rodeos on the International Gay Rodeo Association circuit. The two­year- old IGRA competition circuit also includes rodeos in Phoenix, Denver, California and Oklahoma. Competitors travel the circuit to accumulate points throughout the rodeo season, and winners are announced at the IGRA season's end. Curiously, the last event of the Texas association's season marks the begin­ning of!GRA's year. TGRA ends its fis· cal year in December, and it is at that Pole bending is one of the many action-filled events of the Texas Gay Rodeo time that totals of proceeds from var­ious fundraising events held through­out the year by the six Texas chapters are tallied and divided among the cities to be donated to the charities, se1ected by the individual chapters. Individual pageant contestants also may opt to raise money for a charity of their own choosing, and organizations in need of donations may apporach TGRA during the rodeo year to request consideration, Vaughan said. The suc­cess of Mr., Miss, and Ms. contestants in raising money has a bearing on who are selected as winners. Fundraising is not limited to the annual rodeo, the club's main event and the culmination of the Texas circuit's year. Fundraisers are held throughout the year by the individual chapters, including variety shows, drag shows, chili cookoffs and guest bartending stints by members. Rodeo-related activities begin a week prior to the four-day weekend, with a "Rodeo Awareness Week" when chap­ter members promote the spirit of the event within their own communities, generating interest in attendance and signing new TGRA members. Although TGRA members emphasize the charitable purPQse of their organiza­tion, that doesn't mean the 300-or-so men and women expected to compete in the 1986 Texas Gay Rodeo don't intend to have fun. Social events scheduled for the weekend include the Royalty Con­test Thursday, Nov. 13; a barn dance and barbeque on Friday and an awards ceremony on Sunday. Competition begins Friday, Nov. 14 and continues through Sunday in the State Fair Coliseum arena. Traditional events like calf roping, chute dogging, bull riding and bareback riding will be spiced up with some more original ones. For example, "goat decorating," in which two people have to put a goat in a pair of men's underwear, and even "wild cow milking," in which a team consisting of a cowboy, a cowgirl, and an impersonator milk the uncoopera· tive bovine and race back to a judge with a full cup of milk_ TG RA officer elections will also be held during the event, and the new offic­ers will be announced at the awards ceremony on Sunday. Vaughan is the unopposed nominee for president in 1987. The officers will be installed in January. • 7 Days a Week • Happy Hour 8am-8pm • Lights. Sound.

At issue is the Houston Chaml>E-r of Commerce and local business estahlishments' track record of anfpathy toward gays, Gene Hamngton, a supporter of the move, satd. The Democratic Party, m platform and principle, supposedly addre:-;ses the needs of the gay and leRbian commun­ity," Harrington said. ~·we merely want to inform the(site)comm1tteeofthe past acuon!-i of the Houston business com­munity attacking gays .. we want It.he committee) to consider the issue we are raising in their deci.sion-making." Harrington said representatives of gay and ltsbian organizations had been invited to a mef"tin(.?", where they were to virw a film presentation intended to educate and persuade the convention committee. He said no firm decision has been made by any community organiza tion to go on record opposing Houston as the convention site. The videotape which will he shown was pat together by indi\;duals within the gay rommunity nnd includl·i; clips from Houston ChamhE-r of Commerc(.• advertisements, statements made in th past by local politicians. and various organizational spokespersons for and against gay civil rights, Harrington said. Other proposals to inform Demo· crats include preparation of an educa· tional brochure detailing the Chamber of Commerce's "history of attacks" on the gay and lesbian community and a tnp to Washington, D.C. by a represen­tative of anti-conventioners to meet with the site committee. The anti-convention movement was triggered about two weeks ago by a statement credited to an assistant to Mayor Kathy Whitmire, Harrington said. Clintme Cashion, director of intergo­vernmental affain; for the mayor's offiC'e, was quoted referring to Houston as ··a united city'' while promoting the local convention bid. Harrington said the Houston Chamber of Commerce's differences with the gay community on a referendum dealing with a discrimina­tion ordinance and inflammatory state­ments made by Chamber members represented disunity and should be a reason for the party to weigh its deci· sion on the convention site carefully. He cited as an examp]P remarks made by former mayoral candidate Louie Welch, a chamber member, during his cam pa1gn "Th18 effort 1s not directed as a com· plaint against the Democratic Party or the 11ite committee ' Harrington said • 'or ls the movcmtnt mh·nded to rritir 1zP Cashion. who supported the gay positmn in the referendum. hC" said At thii;i point we have not even de<·ided tonsk (the convention committl•e) not to come," Harrington !-laid. "'We just want them to listen to the points we arr addressing. ~Pl~y ~Safe! Harrington said the anti conventioner:; were concerned that "some of the businesses which stand to benefit most" economically from the convention are the most vocal oppo· nent~ of gay right.". He pointed in part to the "Houston Proud" campaign, claim· ing that some members of its board of directors have madr inflammatory statements against gays in their adver· tising. &-cause some gay-supportive husi· nesses nlso would benefit from the con· vention. Harringtnn said his group plannt>d to nppeal to Montrose-arl'a businesses to ask for understanding and suppt•rt of their efforts "in the inter· est or jushre .• ''I'm quite sure that .!;ome people will say wt> fihouldn 't rock the boat," Har­rington said. 'jln order to rock the boat you must first be in the boat . . we feel the Houston business community has made it clear that (gays) are not we) come in the boat." Democratic Party Chairman Paul Kirk told reporters following the announct•ment Tuesday night of Bill Clements' victory in the gubernatorial race that "Houston still has a good chance'' of getting the convention. a reversal of his previoufi position on the effect of a GOP win. The selection pro­Cf'ss "is still wide optn," Kirk said. Harrington !-laid if an organized effort to oppose having the convention in Houston is surrrssful, itr-; impact will bP felt hy gay rights opponents. .. When you hit a bigot in the poc·ket· book, he is forced to listen," Harrington said The Rite selection committee is due to make its decision in January.

QHT VIJSClf '- ~PASJ.11~ r!'f •·( 1 • • :"'f'R PAI"" PAIN DOWN Al:tJ.118 By Jim F la herty Montrose Voice Staff Members of the Houston Gay Political Caucus (GPC) were still in high spirits at their regular meeting, Nov. 5, at the Viscount Hotel, following Tuesday's election, which saw 17 of their 23 endorsed candidates sweep to victory. Several candidates, particularly in Harris County judicial races, have attributed their election to gay political organizing. Hannah Chow, just elected judge of County Criminal Court No. 5, appeared at the meeting to thank cau· cus members, and through them, the gay community, for their help. Addressing the caucus, Chow said, "There is an ancient Chinese saying. 'When you drink the water, remember who dug the well.' I'll remember who dug the well." A number of other endorsed candidates have contacted the caucus to express their thanks. Elf'ction results from Montrose pre­cincts demonstrated the effectiveness of gay bloc voting. Despite the concerted efforts of anti-gay activist Dr. Steven Hotze and his followers to defeat GPC­endorsed candidates, the only Republi can judicial candidates to unseat incumbent Democratic judges were thoRe endorsed by the caucus. Mark Atkinson and Jim Anderson won by narrow margins. Their victories fol­lowed a letter·writing campaign, and a heavy phone-banking effort of the Hotze organization, which urged its fol· lowers to vote the straight Republican ticket, with the exception of Atkinson, Anderson, and J.R. Musselwhite, an incumbent Republican judge who sought, and received theendorsementof the caucus and was re-elected. While there was a great deal of reported harassment of these three Republican candidates from the Hotze organization, the crossover voting in heavily Democratic Montrose precincts seemed to indicate that gay and lesbian voters will support candidates of either Party who demonstrate a sensitivity to human rights issues. Both Anderson end David Mendoza, who was elected by a narrow margin to the bench of County Criminal Court No. 11, appeared at the caucus' election night headquarters, The Checkerboard Deli, 808 Lovett, to express gratitude for the support. In addition to caucus members, a number of members of gay student groups from area colleges attended the party. ln other GPC business, caucus members heard from Joe Wilson, its representative to the Lesbian/ Gay Lobby of Texas (LGLT), which recently changed its name from Lesbian Gay Rights Advocates (LGRA}, in order to emphasize that its intention to function aR a political action committee. David Fowler reported that the David Scondras fundraising dinner netted more than $600 after expenses, money needed to help offset heavy election expenditures. Phylhs Frye, president of the Greater Montrose Business Guild, spoke con­cerning the guild's Thanksgiving week food drive. WE'RE ON THE CURVE ... Frank Turner, a local insurance agent, offered a major medical health insurance plan for caucus members to be issued on a non-discriminatory basis. Turner invited the public to attend a seminar on various aspects of AIDS. Zion Lutheran Church, 3606 Beau­champ at Pecore in the Heights, will be the scene for the 7:30 p.m. seminar on Nov. 20. The discussion will feature Turner, Dr. Brian Wonnacott, M.D.; Wil­liam Hitt, Ph.D. of Immunotherapy Clinic; and Robert Farley, chaplain at M.D. Anderson Hospital.

This 12" dance single was produced, written and arranged by French veteran producer Jacques MoraJJi, one of the most pro­lific and influential dance music pro­ducers of the late !->eventies. Mora1li i~ responRible for such groups as the Peter Jacques Band, the Village People and all of Ms. Kitt's dance hits including her classic, ''Where i~ My Man," from '83. 'l'he technical and aesthetic evolution of the Kitti Moralli sound is strikingly evident from the first note. Both the instrumentation and the background harmonics are very sophisticated. And the dance mix provided is very clean with ample instrumental breaks and a tastefully arranged and mixed vocal track This is bound to be the moi;t success· ful release yet for Eartha Kitt. Her dis­tinctive vocals add a strong audience recognition appeal for the top 40 crowd, while the sophisticated rhythms and slirk production will surely please the diseriminatinJi? high energy fans. • "We Connnect 'by Stacey Q, on Atlanu- Records (rn2 bpm 1 Tius latest 11:' smgle to be taken from Stacey Q's recent album, Better than Heaven, could easily becomeai-; big a hit as her solo dehutsingJe. 1'Twoof Hearts The remix Job is superb-lots ofpercus· sion and both intro and outro are ideal for programming. And the fidelity is also very good; the highs are crisp and the bass itt solid. Thib is almost a late release though, since the video has been available for over a month and many may have seen Stacey Q perform this song live on the second Joan Rivers Lau Show epi· eode Surprisingly Stacey Q is only now earning national recognition even though shes been n•rording as lead vocalist for producer artist Jon St. James' band, SSQ since '82. Her first single with SSQ wos an overlooked gem titled "Hig Electronic Beat,' on Enigma Rf'Cords. Unfortunately, this cut was 'killed' by an odd 4-3-4 1 rhythm that was almost impossible to program. Fans of Stacey Q should check out her latest down-tempo 12" release, "Shy Girl" (120 bpm) on On the Spot Records This cut does not appear on her album and is a surpri~ing R&B departure from her previous work. ;-"Heaven .. by Until Dec;;ber, on CBSt 415 Records (126 bpm) This is the firttt single to be released from Until December's new album. Until Decrmber, also on CBS/ 415 Records. This Ringle and the album are both exceptional release.s, rivaling some of the hes! of the British bands_ Their mixing and basic arrangement style is as sophi~ticated as Talk Talk, con­trasted by instrumentation and vocal arrangements with a Psychedelic Furs flavor, while their rhythm pro­gramming and overall feeling often sounds Depeche Mode influenced. It's an eclectic yet very tight, clean sound with a decidedly new-rock flavor. Unfortunately, I've been told their album is off to a slow start since the club hits, "We Are the Boys" and "Live Alone in Shame.'' both verv succesful single releases, were not incl~ded on the album. However, the 81Dgle release ''Heavt>n" may soon turn that around. Tht• rf'mix ts oui;.tandmg with lots of extra rhythrr and percus8ion tracks and an extended hreak. And although the music content may be a bit too progressive for the Top 40 or high energy crowd, it's sure to score big with the ever increasing new music and D.0.R. markets. Also included on the B-side of the sin­gle is a remake of the nu·wave classic "Bela Lugosi's Dead," originally by Bauhaus. They've done a great job with this remake version-it's as good as the original aesthetically and thanks to today's digital Pledronics is even bet~ ter t('chnically I find it very exciting to see a local Houston band making such significant impact on the international new-rock scene. And for Until December it's only the beginning. Check out their new album-I think you'll agree that this band has the talent to become a major contributor to the future of American rock music. • "Bizarre Love Triangle" by -New Order on Qwest Records (120 bpm) This is the prc·ttiest release from Brit­bh new-rotkers New Order since their dehut olbum from '1!2.

This release is almost a bastard son for New Order. It's undoubtably a new­rock release but it's hard to classify mar· ketwise. It's too progressive for the R&B market, too R&B for the rock market, too hip hop for the high energy market, and too avant garde for the top 40 market. But it is a vc•ry danceab1e, well constructed piece and will surely have moderate but very wide market appeal if it receive-s any club or radio exposure. Mardi Coleman ts a Houston nightclub DJ r~.

Part of the inevitable change will be the appearaanceof a daily sportfi sect on designed to give readers a good overview of current sports news. That comes as no surpn~e. But what ma)' surprise people is our attitude about the whole subject of sports. The feeling here is that sports is not news (not generally), and the editorial con­tent wi. faithfully reflect that feeling. We think of profe~sional sporting events as entert.J.inment, and its many partictpants the beneficiaries of a sort of mass neurOf;fa. A large number of Americans are heavlly addicted to view­ing grown mt>n and women struggle with one another in an effort to perform inane tasks. Why this is ~o will be a topic of discus· sion next week in this space, but for now, it is enough merely to state the condition, as we see it, and advise our readers that we are fully aware of it. Clearly, there is something appealing in the drama of competition, the sight of physically fit performeri:;, and excite· ment or joining enormous congrf•ga· tions in Eiplendid stadiums. But the degree to which many people become emotionally involved with their teams. the time and thought (not to mention money) they spend on these games, is inordinant and nothing short of obse~ s1ve. Maybe •port8 appeal primarily to the masses who are looking for meanings in the execution of their own day-to-day tasks. \\'hat.evt'r the case may be, sports are important to the public, and the Voice has an obligation to report cur· rent sports news and offer a different pcn;pective forrur more discriminating audience. We intend to provide all the infonna· lion our reader:; may reasonably wish to have about local sports, and we will con­tinue our ection of "neighborhood sports.'' to which readeri:; of the Mont· rose Voice have grown accustomed. We will also be pleased to tell you exactly what we think of the Rockets, Oilers, and others, when we feel comment is appropriate. But don't look here for every detail of every event. Wejustdon't think it's that important.

Ophelia is from the Northeast. Her focus is on upward mobility. Education is an important tool. Respect is earned and not unduly stressed. But in this society of equals, she worries a lot about what other people think, even her ex­husband who only bothers to see their children once a year or so. Louie grew up a Southern country boy. His main thing is enjoying the here and now. He dropped out of school in about the fifth grade. He just couldn't, and still can't, see any way education would enrich his daily life. Respect is a matter of position and must be insisted upon, Since people must respect your position, you're free to take full advan· tage of your opportunities. Rousseau would have liked him. Both playwright Gus Edwards and director George Hawkins have softened what might have been boorishness in Louie's character. Edwards made him older than Ophelia. He's in his forties. He's also mellowed like someone might tum a hot jazz tune into a good piano bar melody. Hawkins gave the role to one of the suavest actors in town, Sterling Vappie. Vappie still leaves the character some rough edges, but sweetens him into a really romantic man. The end effect is like a cup of super strong. nearly bitter coffee with cream and sugar to taste. Nor iR Elaine Taylor vapid as the hProine. D~pite her inhibitions, she has true backbone. She is worth fight· ing for. When push comes to shove, she'll be right in there. There is some use of slides and sound movies of the cast to push the plot along. One bit of footage was just a cute novelty which failed to alleviate the tedium of some drawn out exposition. The other footage was an inspired bit of staging, perfectly solving the problem of the moment. The leisurely pace and interminably long scene changes do not help the first fourth of the evening, but, after slog­ging through the first few scenes, the evening catches fire! This is the second most romantic evening on local stages in quite some time. Note: Due to the illness of Sterling Vappie, some performances of Louie and Ophelia may be cancelled. Call the theater, 520-0051, for performance days and times. o Notes There is a new book out- 50 Texas Artists. Each artist chose one represen· tative piece to be included and made a statement about either it or the philo­sophy of his art. Then author Annette Carlozzi, curator of Austin's Laguna Gloria Art Museum, added a few of her own comments and Gay Block photo­graphic portraits of each artist. Those photos will be on display at Texas Art Supply Nov. 18-22 .... Yesterday, the new Hard Rock Cafe unveiled an original sculpture by the Ant Farm.

Brian Reich's play Fortune's Fools, which was first seen at Stages' Texas Playwright's Festival, was first selected by the Theater Communications Group as one of their Plays in Progress series. That will greatly increase the play's vis­ibility around the theaters most likely to produce it, probably bringing it over a hundred new productions . ...

Monday. when I was able to walk , I kept thinking of the little girl in front of her TV set announcing, "'They're here!" I wanted to shout, .. They're gone."

They should have given drinks to anyone who could pronounce the name of the party. FYI the pumpkm contest was not won by David Peck with a candle on his head. Ron Dionne"s mother should know about his pump­kin . Most original and sadistic went to Chris Stahn; mrn;t masochistic went to BRB's Tom BPck; moRtoriginal costume was big John B. It was a Halloween party complete with a man in a cage of rats. \/mce was disguised as a banana tret> out·yoi..-know-where. Gary looked like a banana. TJi,, Wilkes Melody and Ashley from Atlanta Thursday the madness spread to T he Barn, a conservative stable on Pacific Street, not known for noise or anything dirty goin' on. After some 15 Joyce Myers-Look-A-Likes, came in Carmen The 6 11 was good and sane if you could get in the door. Several beauties, including TNT's John could not get their s kirts down long enough to get inside. Poor Vince- (FYI, John only likes Vinces) got stuck at home when his cute roommate David carried off the deadbolt lock keys in his briefcase. John finally forgave Vince at 4:00 a.m. But where did David go? The 611 crowd sported a brand new look, thanks to Wayne. Danny wore a Danny suit. He married Billie Boy and they both do cherry pies. Jerry had a great time. No one saw him afterward. I got all the way to Mary's on my way over to Ch utes and the street parade, car rally and freeway on Fairview took away all my inclination to get on the street. I even tried walking. What a parade of pretties and ghastlies! Mary's had three crowds-inside, the movie bunch. and the small back bar. In street people having a hard time figur­ing out which were real cops and play copR. When one young lady, dressed in her best June Cleavt>r outfit asked to see the Beaver, a young cop asked where she was going. She replied to see the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. He replied, "Stick around, lady!" I have never seen such a fast job clear­ing the street. Westheimer was a regular parade route just before midnight when the scare occurred. Finally the all clear was given and Mary's was on her way to another historical occasion. Free cham­pagne was given to all who toughed it out. It really was a good party after all. H.S.P.V.A. received a similar call ear­lier in the week. Children at Sirrom School of Belly Dancml( party all three, costumes mingled with regu­lan; until they were not sure which were the freaks. As they say, eventually eve­ryone comes to Mary's. I don't think they meant the cops, firemen, and ambulance drivers. But, on Friday, they did . At the height of the feast, Maria took a phone call which translated into a bomb threat. Hardly recovered, two more ca Jig from the fire and police depts. confirmed they too had been warned. Within some six minutes, both foot and auto traffic was halted and rerouted on Westheimer Road from Montrose to Commonwealth. Mary's evacuated, empty, silent became the background for chilly scanty costumed patrons, now mostly sober as the police herded eve· ryone into Mary's Jot and then into Dorsey's. Police videotaped the crowd. Actually there was no harassment. But when the police interviewed the staff .. CYB Big Yellow Dickie Bird, Drum Majorette Maria, Vampy Pickles, Cow· boy Fanny, leather punked harnessed Paul, executioner Rick on the door, and Mary's continues with Ricky's Mon­day pool tournaments undPr MSA rules. Hasty Halloween departees may still claim prizes from Eagle Leather. On Nov. II, Mary's presents a Military Affair. Jerry Reid and Ron Mathis went all the way to Colonel Boobies in GaJ. veAton just for accurate decor. Maria recovered long enough to pull together Sweet Fanny's big 5lst birthday party. He received 51 fish, one for each year, from Tom's Pretty Fis h . Plans call to coordinate Mary's tree lighting as part of December in Montrose. Saturday night I made the most fes· tive party in years-the Venture N's Freaker's Ball, It started slowly, even up in Don Bye's loft. Then the costumes arrived . Emcee for the event was Dauid. All the pretties were there: Big Jim, Steve Shimer and the bar bunch. Now it was Sunday and time for my appearance at Numbers. CYB Santa, Elvira, a hunky lion, the gold dust twins flipping pancakes, a nasher that shoots, grand ladies, god and goddess.

I arrivC'd just as their show was finishing to a full house. But as an added treat, Mark and Joey-hunky Joey of Door fame-went into action.

Somehow I squeezed in a visit to the Geshi House (Mining Company) to witness the Munsters win the costume contest. You may remember this family. Right now they are appearing at Club Flamingo as R.S. V.P. before they leave for New York in a new show. All those straw mats made me sleepy and so off to bed I went. Monday was the big clown raffle at Just Marion & Lynn's along with the anniversary celebration. What a crowd. Rambo helped Pat Hall with the tickets. Because of the scramble for tickets, the rest of the collection raffle was put aside. You can still get tickets. Call 528· 9110. At midnight a champagne toast was given to Marion.

There are other significant benefits too for advertisers in the Daily Voice. • There will be an improved quality of reader. The Daily Voice will be paid circulation. not free distribution. The Daily Voice will sell for 25¢ a copy, which will give us a much higher quality reader than that of the free distribution publications.

This 1s the most important asset the Daily Voice will have. Your advertising message will reach our readers at their homes and apartments On their doorsteps Five afternoons a week That will make a lot more impact than once a week with them thumbing past your ad in a dark bar (Through special arranQements. many Montrose and other Inside-the-Loop apartment complexes are subscribing to the Daily Voice on behalf of all their tenants.) • You can pick the day(s) you want your ad message to hit.

But read on if you would like to get an understandin\: of how advertising in Houston s new newspaper will be set up. There are two types of advertising: ~~~~~~~cli~~r~(~ua~~~crh:~~s:n~any q_uarter:pages, half pages, etc.) and Classified (where you purchase so many words or lines of spa('('.) Each operates separately. If you sign an agreement for one type it dc>t>s not affect the other type in fulfilling contract obligations. Classified ads appear only on the NOVEMBER 7, 1986 / MONTROSE VOICE 21 Voice Classified pages, under appropriate categories. Display ads appear throughout the p_aper. man¥ even ap~aring on the Voice Classifieds pages with the Classified ads (but these are considered Display ads, not Classified ads). With Display ads, you can use a variety of typestyles, artwork , photographs, logos, gray shades and color. With Classified ads, your message appears in a standard Helvetica typestyle, no borders, no logos, no artwork, etc. It's nothing fancy. I~'~ just a plain and simple. w~y. of advertism~ pnmarily used by individuals for selhng personal items. Back to Display ads: You can advertise on the ''Open Rate" or you can sign an agreement promising to purchase at least 1 Display ad a week for 4, 13 or 26 cons('Cuttve wet·ks. The longer your agreement, the better your rate. You can vary the size of ad you run week·to-week. You can run different days of the week, or several days a week. The minimum size of Displ!!Y ad is 1 column wide and 1 inch tall. There is no maximum, of course. (You can buy pages and pages and pages.) If you purchase more than one . Display ad a week, there are very big saVJngs. Your largest ad of the week will be charged as listed on the Primary Rate Schedule. Other ads that week will be charged just 40'J< of the Primary Rate Schedule. Example: Let's say_ you've signed .a 13·week agttement, which means you ve promised to run at least 1 Display ad a week for 13 consecutive weeks. In a particular week. you d~i~e to ru!1 a 1 4 page in the weekend_ edition (_w_hich promises to be our biggest edition of the week) and also a 118 page in Wednesday edition as a tease to your big weekend ad. The 114 page is normally $169 on the open rate. You're getting it for $128 because you're on a 13-week agreement. The I ·8 page is normaJly $115. Your contract allows you to bu;Y it for $88. But since you're also bu}'lng another bigger ad that week, you get the 118 m)e for $35. (Yes, $35, which is 40% of For accounting purposes, the "week" runs in normal calendar order, starting with "Monday" and ending with "Weekend." So, if you run your biggest ad in the Weekend edition, your extra discounted other ads must be run prior, not after. What about special placement? You can have your ad appear just about anywhere you want for a 30% special . placement charge. The 30%, however, is figured off your contract rate and not off the 60% discounted rate. Inserts? Each insert, regardless of size is charged as though it was a fuJI. page ad. The same discounts above are available. However, there is also a mechanical handling fee of I cent per ounce (minimum charge 1 cent per piece) that is not available to be discounted. Deadlines?

Basically it's this: The longer >'ou can wait for your photo developing, the lower the developing and printing price. After all, "Time is money." You may think drug stores and supermarkets have about the lowest prices around for photo developing. And you are almost right. They usually offer what is called "next day service" but which is in many cases a two-day wait. (You must drop your film off before their daily pickup and cannot pick it back up until after the next day's pickup. So, if their daily pickup is at, say, lpm, and you arrive on a Monday at 2pm, your film won't be back until Wednesday at lpm. That's 47hours later. Yes, they call this "next day service." At Henry's, we offer this same "speed," if that's what you want1 but we're honest in our description of it. We call it "2 Day Service." And with it, you get our lowest rate, wnich is about the same as the drug stores and supermarkets. It's as low as $1.99 a roll. By letting us have 48 hours to do your film, we can do it during our slack periods, or at night, while continuing to keep our machines running for those customers who want their photos "right now." This brings us to our famous "One Hour Service." Sometimes you just don't want to wait. You need your film developed and printed immediately. Even while you wait. We II do it. And in less than an hour for 90% of the customers wanting this service. Our one-hour service costs more, of course, than drug store processing. But it's still reasonably priced at as low as $6.59. How about a compromise between speed and price? We also have a real One Day Service, where we promise to have it ready for you in 24 hours, irregardless of what time you bring it in. That price is as low as $4.99 a roll. SIZE OF PRINTS For 35mm film, you have a choice of standard prints(3x5), large prints (4x6), or professional-size prints (5x7). The bigger the print, of course, the more the cost. SHOTS THAT DON'T COME OUT We don't charge you for blank or unexposed shots on your negative. We charge a small developing fee for the negative and then only charge you for the "printable" pictures. CENSORSHIP It's not for us to judge. We develop all our customers' pictures confidentially with the same care and quality. NO GETTING LOST At the drug stores and supermarkets, your film goes on a lot of trips. Some chains even process their Houston film in Dallas. All that traveling increases the chance that your film will get lost or damaged­or sent to someone else while you get theirs. At Henry's, we do all 35mm color film in our lab-right there where you dropped it off at 4281/, Westheimer. The regular color· print film never leaves. (We do send out slides, black and white film, prints from prints, and SxIO and up enlargements. They all are picked up and returned by the Kodak commercial lab in Houston, which has the ability to process everything that we can't.) PAPER AND CHEMICALS We use Kodak and Fuji paper with Kis chemicals. Why the mixture? Kis (the manufacturer of our equipment) recommends Kodak paper, which works best in most cases. We have found, however, that Fuji paper will give a better look for some customers, especially those using Fuji film. So we use what works best for your photos. We are not tied down to one company, like most other fast-photo and drug stores are. COMMERCIAL PHOTO PRINTING Let us bid on your mass quantities, from a couple of dozen lo a couple of thousand. (Photos make great invitations.) And all photo developing, from I copy to a thousand enlargements, gets the same custom quality control. 4281/2 Westheimer Houston.
