Christie Reed, the state's assistant AIDS project coordinator, told the commit· tee that there has been a sharp decline in the spread of AIDS in the state. Although there have been 53 more AIDS cases reported through Dec. 13 than there were in all of last year, the final percen· tage increase will be minor compared to the 1983-84 jump of more than 150%, Reed said. There have been 150 cases reported in Harris County this year, bringing the county's total to 413 since 1980. In the next committee meeting, Houston WELL?' Health Director Dr. James Haughton is scheduled to introduce a plan where specially-trained quality assurance offic­ers \\--ill help restaurants train workers in proper food preparation, storage and employre hygiene. The state health officials agree that there is no evidence that AIDS is a food. born disease. Mother Teresa to Care for 3 Inmates Dying of AIDS From a UPI published report Three prisoners from Sing Sing prison in New York suffering from AIDS were released to spend Christmas and their last days oflife in the care of Nobel Peace Prize winner Mother Teresa. "Based upon humanitarian and com­passionate considerations, I agree with Mother Teresa's request," said New York Gov. Mario Cuomo, who asked Correc­tions Commissiorvr Thomas Coughlin to authorize the release. "She visited the inmates. She wanted to care for them. Thesethreeinmateswantto be in her care," Cuomo said. Mother Teresa, on Tuesday, Dec. 24, toured the 10-bed Special Needs Unit in the Sing Sing Correctional Facility in Ossining. After her visit, she asked the ,,,.,',..; p l•' ~i STEVE D.

The governor, aft.er consulting with Couglin, agreed because the prisoners were dying of acquired immune deficiency syndrome which weakens the body's abil­ity to fight disease. The federal Centers for Disea~e Control has recorded 8,002 people dead from AIDS as of Dec. 16 . Coughlin granted medical furloughs to Antonio Rivera, 36, Jimmy Matos, 27, and Darryl Monsett, 31, all of New York City. The three inmates are serving time for robbery. Rivera is in critical condition, suffering from pneumonia, incontinence, and being slightly incoherent, while Monsett is totally bedridden, with his lower legs and right arm swollen to three times their nor-ma! size, officials said. Matos is said to be suffering "periodic spiked fevers" but able to walk with some assistance, said James Flateau, a depart­ment spokesman. The three men left the prison about 2:00 p.m. and were transported by ambulance to New York City, where they were taken to St. Clare's Hospital in Manhattan. Flateau said he did not know how long the men had been ill or how they con· tracted the di,ease. However, the three are among 245 confirmed AIDS cases among convicts in the New York's prisons since the disease was identified in November 1981, he said. Of that number, 152 have died. 53 are in prison and 40 have either served out their sentence or have been released through parole or a court order, he said. 4 MONTROSE VOICE I DECEMBER 27 1985 Dr. Didato's Personality Quiz Are You Safety-Conscious? By Salvatore V. Didato, Ph.D. Special to the Montro.ie Voice News America Syndicate After skidding into a tree, a shaken motor­ist wa11 a11ked by a policeman: "Why were you Rpeeding?" The dazed driver replied in serious tones: "My fuel 11upply was low and I fig. url'd I'd better hurry to the service station before my ga~ ran ouL" Maybe this story is worth a chuckle, but accidents which, according to the National Safety Council in Chicago, happen to more than 9 million American,; yearly, are no joke. Moo;t of them occur not on the highway, w might believed, but in the home. Thio supposed sanctuary of safety leads all other locations (Le., work, school, roads) in mishaps by three to one. Indeed, home is where the hurt is. Pulling a saftey boner is largely a mat­ter of poor judgement and peri;onality makeup. A small percentage of people have the majority of accidents. Those in this accident-prone group falsely believe they Y.ill be spared. But grim statistics show their folly They have a mishap rate of five to one compared with others. The quiz ahead gives you a chance to study yourself and to observe your patt­erns of beha~ior. Do accidents seem to hit you more than to others? Answer True or False, then read on to find if you are, indeed, safety-conscious or not. Letters Thank You T.G.R.A. From Tom Audette. Administrative Olfector, Montrose Clinic On behalf of the Board of Trustees, employees and volunteer staff of The Montrose rlinic, I extend my sincerest thanks and gratitude to the Texas Gay Rodeo Association for their very generous support. During 19115 they have donated in excess of $3500 to the chnic. A special thank you to three of the members of T.G.RA -Jimmy Golden , Beau Hughe .. and Danny Murphy, each of whom donated 75% of all moniei; they raised during T.G RA. benefits to The Montrose Clime. The balance they gave to other organizations. Thank you, all, for your generosity and , upport. Lower Westheimer Police Station Needed From Loran E. Doss The Lower Westheimer Police Station has been long overdue for the Westheimer area Already positive rei;ults are coming about just because of its mere presence. The undCSirable element is fast disappear­ing from the street.• and people in that area are beginning to feel more Recure. The many businesses and citizen11 who have contributed to this project will find that their donations have been well invested. More often than not, I would tend to: 1. Drop razor blades into the waste­basket. 2. Continue to use electric appliances which have a worn cord. 3. Move an electric fan without discon­necting it. 4. Use a dull knife which requires strong pressure to make it cut. 5. Plug the cord of an electric appliance into the wall outlet first, then into the appliance it.'<elf. 6. Touch electrified objects (i.e., hair dryer, i;haver, light switch, radio, etc.) after emerging from a shower or bath 7. Keep oily rags or furniture polish cloth. in non-metal containers (like plas· tic bags, cardboard boxei;, etc.) 8. Place n scatter rug at the top or the bottom of a stairway. 9. Store an electric appliance by first removing the cord from the appliance and then disconnecting the cord from the wall outlet. 10. Use a fork or knife to dislodge bread from a toaster. o Explanation Each year, about 90,000 deaths occur through accidents. To some degree, each one one was ~ictimized by the myth of personal exclusion. Ill only happens to the other guy and it won't happen to me.) Don't be a magical thinker. Be realistic. At best, even when it is someone eli;e's fault, the National Safety Council esti­mates that an average peri;on will have four serious accidenlli in a lifetime. Repeated observation shows that from 80 to 90 percent of all accidents are due to ------------ MEXICAN RESTAURANT 4701 N.

This, coupled with the fact that a small number of persons have the largei;t number of mishaps, has led expert;; to conclude that those in this group are accident-prone. They have per· sonality traits which differ from others. First, they tend to be in the 15-24 year­old range. They usually are impulsive, maladjusted and are thrillseekers. Psy­choanalysts tell us they have an uncons­cious self-directed hostility. But other, less fancy, reaioons for a person repeatedly having accidents are: excessive worry, inatt.entivenei;s, non-concern for self, poor perceptual problemi;, inner ear imbalance and poor musde sense. Fatigue also plays a big role here. At work, for example, one-half of all acci­dent;; happen in the last two hours of the day comapred with one-fifth in the first two hours. o Score Take a point for each False answer. 7 or more correct-You are keenly safety-conscious. 4-6 correct-Strive for more awareness about danger. ~3-Keep the hospital number handy. Tips on Safety'. Since fatigue is an important cause of accident.<, don't attempt tasks which require vigilance when you're very tired, i.e., using a ladder, working with sharp tools, or taking the extra swim or another run on the ski 11lope. Never be complacent about your sur­roundings. Make a quick survey to know its potential dangers, then take action to correct these. Hopefully, this quiz will raise the level of your safety conscious­ness. ~-----------.i : s1000 I ! off , I CUP THIS AD and attach it to I I your next order for S 10.00 off I any of the following items: • Letterheads • Postcards •Brochures• Multipart Forms • 2-Color Printing •Flyers •Contracts• Menus •Resumes• Envelopes • Amouncements • Invitations • Business Cards • Door Hangers • Report or Booklet Copying• Invoices • .

Both the Rreakfa,;t Club and St. Elmo's Fire proved that thi~ type of movie could be sensitive, appealing, and even popular without much sex and stupidity Foreign films were a bit skimpy this year, with many of the best coming from Australm and Great Britain.

The most be11utiful effort WO» The Makwka Sisters from Japan, an absorb· ing look at a post-war culture clash. Gay films were also in short supply as usual. The gay-oriented Ki.•s of the Spider Woman surprised everyone by pleasing critics and audiences alike with a poig· . nant drama about two men in a South American prison. We finally got to sec the excellent Spanish film El Diputada, hut a well-received AIDS drama called Buddie., will not show here in Houston until Febru· ary at the River Oaks. Tele''i~ion did a much better job dealing with homosexual­ity in two dramas, An Early Frost and Consentuig Adult. As for my Best Ten of the Year, I have picked the films that were generally well­made, held up after repeated viewing, and were a stl'p up from mediocre films like King David, Volunteers, and Perfect. Fol lowing close behind are 10 films that. although flawed, were good efforts that deserve recognition. There is a separate category for foreign films, and a few cho­ice piC'ks at the end including my favorite performances. Without further ado, here are the very Best of 19 5 in no particular order or pref· erencc: I. Mask-Cher's rough but touching portray! of a motorcycle mama caring for a son with a rare, disfiguring disease will no doubt put her in the Oscar ring. More importantly, this true story docsn 't sink to disparity like most "disease" movies, and we actually leave the theater uplifted and moved 2. Purple Rose of Cairo-Woody Allen's loving tnhute to dnema is a pricele><s gem. When a dash mg movie character steps off the screen and falls for moviegoer Mia Farrow, wt• could almost believe it wai; happening. A new high for a director who has not been as popular in recent vearR 3. Lost 1n America-Director Albert Brooks (Modern Romance) gives us another juicy slice of funny Americana Albert Brooks and Julie Hagerty are a yuppie couple who sell everything and decide to live "on the road." Hilarious dia­logue and situations make this a top notch comedy that was overlooked hy many 4. After Hours-A "black" comedy from the director of Taxi Driver, Martin Scor· cese. Griffin Dunn leads us into the night­mare world of Manhatten's Soho District where nothing goes right and women are never what they seem to be. A dark and P1•1 .. Wre's Rig Adt•rnturc Best Films of 1985 weird comedy lhat may be difficult for some to understand. 5. Pee· Wee's Big Adventure-Golly, this was sure a movie out of left field. Late night funny man Pee Wee Herman became a full-fledged movie star with this inventive throwback to Chaplin comedies. I think it's safe to say lhat we'll see more Pee Wee very soon. 6. Siluerado-The only 1985 Western that didn't manage to get shot down at the box office. The all-star cast included Kevin Kline, Danny Glover, Scott Glenn, and Kevin Kostner as the heroic saviors of a distres~ed small town. Linda Hunt (Year of Living Dangerously) proved once again that she is one of the most promising actresses who can play almoi;t anything. 7. Prizzi's Honor-Jack Nicholson and Kathlen Turner were hit men (women) in Harrison Ford and Kelly McGill1s in ''Witness" this tongut.~in-cheek Mafia comedy. John Huston directed this "black comedy" with his usual flair that kept us guessing who would end up killing who. Anjelica Huston econ'<I big as Nicholson's old lover, but William Hickey stole the show as the lecherous old Don Corrado Prizzi. 8. Cocoon-Ron Howard's sci·fi ' fan· tasy was noted more for its in-eat bunch of old-timer actors than its flashy special effects, which were also quite good. Don Ameche, Wilford Brimley, Gwen Verdon, and Jessica Tandy (among others) were simply a delight as they dabbled in the fountain of youth and communicated with aliens. This was a heartwarming adven­ture that everyone could enjoy. 9. Witness-Australian Peter Weir makes his first American film wilh this solid drama about a police captain forced to live among the Amish. Mixing intrigue, romancl' and moral/ religious implica· tions, Witness weaves a fascinating tale that held audiences spellbound. A big step for Harrison Ford, and a major role for the beautiful and talented Kelly McGillis. 10. Fright Night-Definitely a personal favoritl' that qualifies as a "guilty plea­sure." Roddy McDowell was superb as the late night horror film hoRt who must deal with lhe reality of a very real vampire. Super makeup and special effects along with a scary/ campy script makes this film miles above the typical horror trash. Runners-up: 11. Stop Making Sense-The Talking Heads in a breathtaking concert film. 12. St. Elmo's Fire-Coll1>ge friendi; face the real world in a poignant and touching drama. 13. Clue-fast-paced, all-star twist on "'l'en Little Indians" with a pricelei;s per· formance by Eileen Brennan (the one wearing the cat·eye glasses.) 14. Gl'Orgi• Stevens-A Filmmakrrs Journey-A loving tribute to lhe diectorof Shane, Giant, and The Greatest Story f,'vl'r Told. In. Compromising Positions-Sus:;an Isaacs biting satire on suburban house- DECEMBER 27, 1985 / MONTROSE VOICE 9 wives became a witty delight complete with Texas-born actress Judity Ivey in rare form. 16. Breakfast Club-High schoolen; stuck in Saturday detention break emo­tional barriers and bare their souls to each olher. 17. The Sure Thing- John Cusack hits the road to California in search of a woman who will "give in" in this modern re-working of It Happened One Night." 18. Creator-Peter O'Toole attempts to remake his dead wife from her living cells in this comedy/ drama about life, dealh, and getting old. 19. Year of the Dragon-a violent but brilliantly executed film about the Chi­nese Mafia with a superb performance by John Lone (Iceman.) 20. Grace Quigley-Katherine Hepburn hires Nick Nolte to bump off old friends who want to die. This film was a hit at lhe Houston Film Festival, but never got lhe big relea11e that it dei;erved. Foreign Films: 1. Kiss of the Spider Woman-The direc· tor of Pixote brought us this absorbing drama that is the Best Foreign Film of the year. Raul Julia and William Hurt are cell· mates who develop an unusual relation· ship in what was also lhe Best Gay Film of 1985. 2. Makioka Sisters-a stunning Japa· nesl' film about the lives and loves of three beautiful sisters in post-war Japan. 3. Coca-Cola Kid-An off-beat Aui;tral· ian movie about a bewildered but bold Coke executive sent "down under" to spruce up Coke sales. 4. Dance with a Stranger-This true story about a Marilyn-like barwaid who murders her ov1>rbearing boyfriend made a big star out of newcomer Miranda Richardson. 5. The Hit-A harrowing tale with John Films Hurt's stone-cold hit man trying to bring his victim back to his ho& alive. 6. A Prwate Function-Maggie Smilh, Michael Palin and a marvelous pig are the Rtars of lhii; irreverant British farce. 7.

Films of lhis type usually have very little to offer m the areas of character developmrnt, storyline, or deep meaning, and arc often scoffed off the screen at press screenings. The new film version of A Choru.• Line has another strike against it because the Broadway play has been running for 10 years. Millions have seen the play and bought the soundtrack, so there are cer· tain ex!><'ctatione already for a filmed ver· sion . But the major obstacle still remnins: will people want to see it again? I realize that I'm one of the few people who has not seen the stage version of Cho· rus J,ine, but it is probably better for this rdvew that I didn't. Frankly, I loved the movit• and was totally dazzled by it. The songs gave me chills, the dancing was fab­ulous, and the dancers were just short of p1>rfert. What more could a musical buff ask for? Avid fans of the Broadway show can nitpick and say lhat several of their favor· ite songs are gone or cut. And it's true that there are too many cut-off legs in soml' of the dance sequ1>nc1>s and the whole film Members of "the /me" take their hat.a and prf'pare to perform "One" m thf' movie "A Chorus Lme" has a tight, closed-in feel to it. But thi5 is, ofter all, a "backstage musical," and cinemascope photography (wide ~creen ) tends to make everything look smaller (which is why there are a lot of :;hot.; from the waist up). Fans of the play can go on if they like, because anything that the mak· ers oflhis film did would have come under close scrutiny and criticism. Actually, credit is du1> to director Richard Attenborough (Ghandil, choreo­grapher J1>ffrey Hornaday (Flashdance) and the fine p1>rformers who have man· ag1>d to capture all the en1>rgy and excite­ment of "cattll' call" tryouts for a big Broadway musical. The young dancers are from varied backgrounds, and their unique styles of song and dance accentu· ate lheir individuality. Yet, when they all come together in unison it is like one body-and they become lhe chorus line. There are bashful girls, bra,sy girls, over-the-hill dancers, a former drag queen, a married couple, and a bouncy Oriental (not to mention lhe black, lhe gay, and the Puerto Rican). When they are asked to rev!'al their inner secrets, they reveal thcir personalities through song and dance numbers. Songs like" At the Ballet,""Sur· prise, Surprise," "Let Mc Dance for You," and "Dance 10, Looks3" tell u~ about ever· ything from sex, to nging and the frustra· tions of becoming something that they really want to be. One weak spot in the film is a character named Cassie, an ex-star and ex-lover of Zack, the tyrannical choreographer played by Michael Douglas. She shows up !all' to try out for the chorus, and is promptly r1>fused by Zack. After much pouting and sitting around, he finally lets her into the tryouts. Well, I would have sure raised a fuss if I was one of the other dancers. Still, in show businesi; you can always play favontes and not really care who loses out. The music is by Mon.in Hamlisch. and it is often too brassy and jazzy. "What I Did For Love" zooms by at "uch lighten­ing speed that if you blink you'll miss it. Other numbers would have been more effective wilh less orchestration so lhat they aren't so overbearing. However, the fmale "One" is a singular sensation that I could just watch over and over again. With the entire cast in stun· ning attire and a mirrored effect that spar· kles, "One" b«-comes the anthem that you'll be humming all week. It is a uplift· ing ending for a film that is often heavy with personal disappointment and em bar· rassment. The cast (too numerous to m1>ntion sep­erately) Ill a shining array of talent that really bowls you over. The 17 potentinl dancers give their all in a dri,ing after· noon of dnncing, acting and singing for a man who is talented but seems to care lit· tic about individuals who are weak. Per· haps the song that best express1>i; the whole group is "I :!\eed a Job" because they are all desperately crymg for some­one to recognize their talent and put it to use. A Chorus Lmc is a good fi.lm for those who really appreciate musicals, and recog· nize talent. It's a tough world for young, talented individuals and an even tougher one for lhose over 30. This film adequately expresses the competition as well as the unity of those who line up at lhe stage door and are constantly rejected. A. one boy Hy&, "I'm 28 years old, from the Bronx, I'm straight. not too talented, but tell me what to do and I'll do it exactly right eight shows a week forever." On wilh the show. T T Fortunes Resolutions and Predictions for 1986 By Mark Orion For Fflday, Dec. 27, 7985. 1hrough Thursday, Jan 2, 1986 ARIES- Your resolution I will keep words whispered in private, confidential. I will avoid temptation to tell all. Then I will give myself a pampering luxury. This is a year to indulge myself! Days will close with a big smile, TAURUS- You've got the silver, and you've got the gold. You will take the magic touch you discovered in 1985 and will spread it around in 1986. Showing others how exciting life can be is its own reward (sometimes with fringe benefits) GEMINI-Oh. how you loved the deep waters in 85. Anything that required a lot of research was just right for you then. In 1986, this delving deep could take you to still other places you haven't been. Your honesty and sense of purpose will be your guide. CANCER- That secret affair that you've been having will be so much more fun in 1986. You may be tempted to bring it out in the open. There will be a war going on in your head over this and other matters. This new year is the time to be a general. Your resolution: I will avoid being irrational, but I will take action. LEO-Health concerns top the list in 1986. You resolve tc buckle down and pay some real attention to what your body requires and needs. You won't be sloppy with it! You'll take care of itl This includes your mind too. You will expand to new horizons in the new year VIRGO- I know you don't like sche­dules, but to be effective, you'll have to organize your calendar in 1986. Activities with friends and group affairs will fre­quently be on the agenda. Plan those special things for ones you love. The months will fly by. LIBRA- Here you are, enjoying a lazy day, while everyone else is making New Year's resolutions. So compromise. Resolve not to make resolutions But seriously, the direction of your life in 1986 is your decision. You can go up or down, or any way All you must do is start the engine, and turn the wheels. SCORPIO Indecision evaporates, and you can make those personal resolu­tions much more easily. Some of these are likely to concern developing a latent talent and looking into a potential money-maker. Good luck! 1986 is waiting for you. SAGITTARIUS- 1986 will be promo­tion time In your life. You can go from being an assistant, a part-timer, or a once-in-a- whiler to full-fledged control. You saw that new person In the mirror this morning. But resolve not to abuse your new power CAPRICORN- I know you're not par­tial to deadlines, but one is here and 11 won't be extended. Once 1985 is gone, it's gone. After you take care of business, there's a party on tap, and an important person to meet Enjoy' AQUARIUS-Fulfilled with all those delicious fantasies that have come true in 1985, you've got the assurance to go out and hunt for more in '86. You resolve to be aggressive and strong. If you don't find new ones, they'll find you. PISCES- Your charm and magnetism were simply super in 1985. So your reso­lution is to keep 1t up. Meet and greet and generally show yourself off in 1986. The first few days will include great ideas and a stubborn individual. But you will handle it well •118S DECEMBER 27, 1985 I MONTROSE VOICE 11 ~:: ~ 12 MONTROSE VOICE I DECEMBER 27, 1985 Montrose Live What kind of people sit home alone on New Year'~ Eue( The Comedy Workshop knows!

On New Year's Eve, I will be looking through my mother's Colorodo Springs picture window at Pikes Peak.

Remember. that's live muSJe. Thetr actors are also, ull put together, a very mellow little band. If you want stand-up comedy, rm sure you have several options between Laff Stop, Comedy Annex, etc. One poss1b11ity is Showstoppers where Kevm Pollak, star of the film Hollyu ood Highs, leads the bill (Jon Melichar and Dan Chopin will be there. too.) And music, music, music . The A D. Players will offer a nice package Thetr regular show, Holly and the Clarifying Christmas Carole, will be followed by a one-act show which they've been tounng. L1ttleboroul(h Valley Story features four actors all playing multiple roles as the townspeople of a small, mythical East Texas town. The town almo. t decides not to have Christmai; one year. Then there will be a buffet in the lobby until about midnight, at which time they'll troop back into the auditorium for a creative worship service. Sergiu Comissiona is back at tht> podium! The doctors have i;aid he can resume his complete conducting schedule. So he'll be conducting the Houston Symphony in "New Year's Eve-A Night in Vienna." Most ofthc·evening has been given over to the Strauss family, the Waltz kmgs with their polkas and gallopps. Soprano Carole Farley will be on hand with operetta songs from Lehar and Kalman. Rockefellers will feature two great rhythm and blues hands-Big Twist and the Mellow Fellows, and Coupe de Ville-as well as free champagne and surpnse guests. You love Broadway music as much as I do?

Montrose Voice America's transition from a nation offac· tones to o~e of offices has hit a snag-and women clencal workers are the big losers. Employment is stagnating in the non· professional clerical sector as many jobs are automated out of existence. Those left tend to pay low, offer little upward mobil· 1ty, and go to white women earning "second incomes" in the suburbs. And though today's "pink collar" jobs often demand specialized computer skills, they are so regimented and closely moni· tored by management that workers often find themselves wracked by boredom, stress or both That 1s the bleak picture painted in a recently released study by 9 to 5, a natlonal association of working women headquartered in Cleveland. The report, titled " Hidden Victims: Clerical Workers, Automation and the Economy," bases its assessment on government statistics, interviews with experts and 9 to 5's own survey of office workers. "Many policy makers have been depending on the service sector, of which clerical employment is a significant part, to provide jobs to make up for losses in the manufactoring sector," says Karen Nuss· baum, executive director of9 to 5. Instead, she says. the study shows that "clerical workers may become as much victims of the changing economy as the dislocated steel and auto workers we hear so much about." Until 19 0 clencal jobs grew faster than the overall national rate of employment. But smce then, the national growth rate for clerical jobs has slowed to two percent less than all employment, according to the report. For the largest group of clencal workers-secretaries, stenographers and typists-the number of jobs has actually shrunk by 100,000 since 1980. And they have declined fastest in the industrial Midwest, the region hit hardest by factory closini?s. Pay hasn't increased either. According to the Census Bureau, in 1983 the median income for full -time women clericals was $10,435-about $250 Jlbove the poverty level for a family of four. Between 1983 and 1984, wai?ea for clerical workers declined by 1.5 percent after adjusting for inflation. Automation is the main culprit in these trends, says 9 to 5. Computers and improved telecommunications have allowed companies to slash jobs and con· solidate their clerical operations, then move them out of large cities to places where labor and other costs are lower For cities like Detroit, which has seen a 40% drop m clerical jobs since 1980, the trend 1s ominous. "New high-tech white collar and clerical 1obs, once touted as part of the economic salvation of urban areas, are now leaving town," warns a summary accompanyin!? the report. Suburbs in New Jeri;ey and Northern California apparently offer the ideal set· ting for today's paperwork factories. Com· panics are flocking there to take advantage of "a more productive but non militant work force," with women, "more likely to be white, college educated, mar· ried, more willin!? to work part-time for lower wages and benefits," the report sayA. In many cases. companies keep prest1· gious big-city addresses for their head· quarters only, moving large data processing branches far away. That sepa· rallon, says the report, is one of the several factors shortening the traditional clerical career ladder for women: " . the rising £JU:. /j/ ,;.~j ~' .

Thayer use of computer technology in offices has changed the nature of the white collar market. No longer can higher level cleri· cals expect to ri:<e into ranks of profes· sional staff and management." Instead of promoting from within, com· panies are filling more high·level slots with new college graduates or profession· als from other firms, and "most of the new computer·related occupations are filled by men," according to the report. Management comes in for other hard hittin!? criticism. The report says that in their quest for productivity, companies have used automation in a way that breeds tension and frustration. New com· puters are able to do more, but also require more specialized skills. Because their bo"ses are unwilling to train them to do more than one kind of computer·aided task, operators find themselves locked mto a single, tightly bounded job, no longer able to relieve boredom by rotating positions with otheri;. An in many offices, computers allow supervisors to monitor worker's every keystroke and set performance quotas­one 9 to I) survey of 600 video display ter· minal workers reveal that over 35% were checked in this way. One Ohio phone company, for example, had figured its workers' expected output down to the second. Verifying a billing charge was to take no more than 8.fi seconds. and ordering an account printout was considered a 37-second task. A sur· veved employee described management's reaction when a co-worker failed to make the standard: "They checked her work It was unmerciful; every batch, every little item . . which made the woman even more nervous. It was like a cycle-that woman's self.esteem was shattered ... . " Such conditions exact a physical toll, the report suggests. It cites a recent study of North Carolina phone company VDT operators which discovered that 20% suf· fered angina and chest pain, often early symptoms of heart disease caused by stress. Computer monitoring has contrib· uted to a " myriad of other health com· plaints" nationwide, says the report, ranging from mild backaches and head· aches to more severe ulcer and eye prob· !ems. Amidst its dreary prognostications, 9 to I) finds a glimmerofhope-ifmanagement decisions about how to use automation are to blame for adverse trends in clerical work, the report suggests, then pressure from workers might bring about improve­ments. It calls for better training, raised pay levels to reflect new computer skills, and an end to "top·down Job-design." "As the economy shifts and automation changes the shape of American offices, clerical workers must be involved in designing new jobs and office systems." declares the report summary. But how employees will force their way into such decision-making remams unclear. Of some 18 million clerical workers in the United States-79% of whom are women-only 17% are unio· nized, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. When government workers are excluded, the figure is even lower. Within the financial sector, where banks and insurance companies employ hundreds of thousands of pink collar workers, only one in 21i belongs to a union.

Many young people have responded to my previous ad, but most of them have been either older than twenty years of age, taller than 5'9", or heavier than 130 lbs. But I still believe that there must be one or two eighteen or nineteen year old gay males who very much need my assist­ance, e.g., subsidizing his college or art school education, giving him emotional support, affording him the pleasure of serving an older man, and, possibly most importantly, pressuring him to loreswear and abnegate the non­productive activities and ways of life of the gay world. This change in lifestyle would mean no longer being able to hang out at gay bars. no longer party till 3:00 AM, no longer smoke joints or cigarettes. Instead, he would learn that he is a member of a minority group interspersed within the straight, majority populace. Consequently, he must, while still very young, educate himself even better than his straight peers so that, in the future, he can be prepared to successfully com­pete and succeed in the straights' world. No, I do not promise you a vacation or picnic. Four years of living with me won't be easy. But I do guarantee you that, at the conclusion of those lour years, you will be ready to con­tinue your post-graduate education or begin your career as well-trained as anyone. I also guarantee you that you will have acquired a value system quite different than that which 1s, unfortunately, held by the majority of young men. I, as well, guarantee the successful graduate the security of knowing his home life will be stable and you will have the pleasure of knowing that a 49 year old, professional, man (6'1 ", 165 lbs. very straight and youthful appearing, bearded, very hairy) cares for you, loves you, and needs you. Needs you very much! I have earned a lot 1n this world. And yet feel an aching void which can only be filled by my emotionally adopting a nephew. Yes. I am into games of bondage. Yes, I would. very much, enjoy restraining you and engaging in bondage and discipline games with you. But be assured, you will never be hurt by me. For whatever reasons. my physical attraction to males is limited to youths of eighteen-twenty two years of age (who appear younger, who are 5'9" or shorter, 130 lbs. or lighter, who have wavy hair (or are prepared to have 11 permed), who have a beardless, boyish face. and smooth, hairless (or nearly hairless), boyish body. These are absolute require­ments; requirements which will have to be proved by your supplying photos and copies of proof of age. If you do flt these requirements, please call me collect. (Or if you do not fit these requirements, but know someone who does and who may not see this ad, please bring this ad to his attention). If you do not fit these requirements (age, height, weight and appearance), please show respect for yourself and respect for the sincerity of my search and not waste your and my time by responding in a vain attempt to picture yourself as some­one you are not. My telephone number: (914) 428-3991, collect. Houra to call: Naw York EST 'Time; Weekdays: 8 PM-9:30 PM, Weekends: 9 AM-6 PM Telephone calls outside of these hours will not be ac­cepted. Thank you.

Well Christmas has finally come and gone. Now for the New Year's cheer! -a- Hope you all had a most enjoyable holi­day, and I hope that Santa brought you ever­ything you wanted. I know I can't complain' I got almost everything and then some' Many thanks to Richard and John for the gift certificate. That was very sweet of you, and you really didn't have to do 11. Good luck in the coming year May it be as suc­cessful as this one. You deserve it. -a- "I'm so amazed. Christmas sure ts wonderful. Sundays sure are the scene down on Pac1f1c Street You've heard of the heart of rock 'n roll, well the intersection of Grant and Pac1f1c is definitely the heart of Mont­rose. Tradition reigns strong and true with Randolph, Skip and company at the Mining Co. Houston's oldest and most popular beer bust is still in force. And, when the totally new patio 1s unveiled, you can be assured it'll be even bigger and better. Believe me, many a match (even 1f 11 was only for the night) was made at the Mining Co.'s beer bust. Now with the inclusion of Houston's new­est video/ dance bar, Heaven, many a match will be made there, too Drop in and say hello to my favorite bartenders, Donny and David K. Never an attitude from them Always warmth and friendliness. And lest we forget JR'• next door JR's 1s always packed to the brim on Sundays too, but there's always room for more. And those burgers, m-m-m good! There's practically something for everyone down in the heart of Montrose-Pacific Street. -a- "/want to complain. Okay, who's in charge of the sheep dip?" Attended the opening of a new bar­Chutea. I must say it still has all of the charm of the Drum. The leather shop inside is real nice. The staff is very friendly and definitely knows how to make a drink. But the best part of the place 1s the guy behind the sounds The deejay Mike Scott ts def1n1tely a different kind of guy Not your typical dee­jay No sir-ee In his words, "No bar Muzak here It's gonna be different here. I promise you ' And different 1t 1s. Why, I couldn 't believe my ears when Bonnie Tyler's ''It's a Heart· ache" started playing Why I haven't heard tht since the old days back in D c But seriously folks Get out to Chutes. Show your support and welcome them to our warm community That s what friends are for a The 611 and the Montrose Sports Associ­ation ore to be congrat..ilated for the1 noble Santa and his helpers make merry for Toys for Tots. efforts in the Toys for Tots drive. It was a success beyond all expectations. The 611 sure has come a long way in the past year -a- The Houston Guest House sure has had a busy season as well. Hot man John got to make it home to New York for a much deserved break. Was the snow fun, John? Great to see Walley Swort back down from Austin for the holidays. Walley is of Walley's World fame at Dirty Sally's. Thanks for the great birthday time at the Mining Co. You and dear Dickey are great. Thank you too. Randolph and Co. for all the cham­pagne and for helping make it a most enjoy­able birthday. -a- Don't forget tonight's after-Christmas sale at Mary's. All tips go towards our salva­tion . What's that. Why the fight to be legal that's what-the repeal of Texas Penal Code 21 06. Also at Mary's, Kan got the Julia Child Cooking Award for his holiday turkey. It was wonderful, baked to perferction with the giblets still in the wrapper. Also just in from Lake Charles, LA, Will Johnson of Mary's Lounge fame did his best Lady God­iva impression and promptly fell off the horse Oh dear. The hips that made him famous are now badly bruised. Hope that black and blue is in style this winter. Mary's will be open from 7am Dec. 31 (New Year's Eve Day) straight through to closing sometime in the early morning hours of Jan. 2. It's unbelievable. -a- The Ripcord will have a special after­hours on New Year's Eve with cash prizes given out throughout the evening. The real special comes at closing when a compli­mentary breakfast will be served. And for the regular nights. there's deejays David Olson and Tarry Grissett - a - The entire staff of Mary's was scrubing and washing the bar last Monday. It was an amazing sight. -a- Ed and William have got the Driscoll Street Cafe open again, 7 days a week.
