Transcript Montrose News May 21,1982 / Montrose Voice 3 'Sodom and Gomorrah* party raised $4600 The Different Drum and The Loading Dock clubs joined forces Saturday and Sunday, May 15 and 16, to present "Sodom and Gomorrah," the reincarnation of the fabled sin cities of Biblical day e. The purpose: a fundraiser for the Kaposi's Sarcoma Committee, a group of local activists, including a victim ofthe disease. Bill Bailey, owner ofthe Drum, reported that the function raised a net amount of $4600 from the $2.00 door donation. This was turned over to the committee. Costumes were encouraged at both bars, located across the street from one another in the 1700 block of Westheimer, and the resulting panoply of Roman centurionB, slaves, Christiana, gladiators and various and assorted characters reminiscent of Old Testament days presented an astounding visual array. Kaposi's sarcoma, recently isolated as an identifiable syndrome that attacks primarily gay males in America, is being fought on several levels. On the level of education and public awareness, groups like the Kaposi Sarcoma Committee, just now in the process of being formed, hopes to obtain funds from state and federal governments for increased research into the causes and prevention of the disease. Bailey reported that the committee being formed includes people like Michael McAdory, who is chairman of the committee and himself a victim ofthe disease, and activist Andy Mills, state representative Debra Danburg and several local physi- The Nation Does America need a 15-MPH speed limit Pacific News Service The 55-mile-an-hour speed limit is a step in the right direction, but a California man says it doesn't go far enough. John Loudermilk has begun a campaign to lower the limit to 15 miles an hour, with the motto, "insects have rights, too." Loudermilk heads a 600-member organization called "Not-Safe" which, among other things, favors knife, slngshot and pencil control, as well s a ban on all children's games—because "they lead to gambling." He says the suggestions are to make the point that the government is passing too many laws and regulations. "Good intentions," he says, "don't necessarily make good laws." Supreme Court to rule on sexual assault case International Gay News Agency WASHINGTON-The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to settle a key question involving federal civil rights suits. The justices said they will consider whether a state or local official must actually intend to harm someone before there can be an award of "punitive" monetary damages. The case concerns Daniel R. Wade, who was sexually assaulted while serving time in a Missouri state prison. A federal grand jury held the prison guard who placed the second inmate in the cell with Wade liable for the incident. Wade was awarded $25,000 for the injuries he suffered in the sexual assault and $5000 in punitive damages to deter future wrongdoing by the guard. Traditionally, the Supreme Court has avoided cases involving homosexual issues. Westmoreland says military should take over media Pacific News Service Retired army general William Westmoreland says the only way the U.S. can win wars in the future is to control the news media. The former U.S. commander in Vietnam says the media—especially television— was to blame for creating an atmosphere of public discontent which crippled the military's ability to win. "Vietnam was the first war fought with out censorship," he says, "and without censorship things can get terribly confused in the public mind." Pirates gobbling up Pac-Man profits The makers of Pac-Man are paying a price for their video game's popularity. Midway Manufacturing Company, which holds the copyright on Pac-Man, says its video maze has become "the most infringed upon game in the U.S." Midway says video game counterfeiters are gobbling up Pac-Man profits, and the company has filed about 20 federal suits nationwide, charging copyright infringement, reports the Dallas Morning News. Ed Adlum, publisher of Replay magazine, says the imitations should come as no surprise. "When you have a hit this outrageous," he says, "the vermin come out of the woodwork." There are 95,000 legitimate Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man machines in the country and 350,000 worldwide. EE3sl!_*RfeNr- ®r|-u_. A__ <W_w--sl Montrose Mouth Memories Remember Joey Dee and the Star- liters—and the Peppermint Lounge and the Peppermint Twist—featured on American Bandstand eons ago. Well, Stonewall Features just informed us that the Peppermint Lounge, New York, was a gay hustler's hangout. Dick Clark never told us that. Last weekend's "Sodom and Gomorrah Party" at both the Drum and the Loading Dock was a great success—and a ton of fun. It's purpose, of course, was as a fund-raiser for research into Kaposi's sarcoma and the other apparently- related diseases. Well, folks. We lost. The Mining Company whipped the Voice in MSA softball play last weekend, 17 to 11, which pushed the Mining Company into second place in the North Division and cemented the Voice to last place in the South Division. Mine manager Randolph Parks thus wins in his bet against Voice publisher Henry McClurg, with Henry to pick up the tab for an ad from the Mining Company. Randolph says he'll take that ad in a future issue. Complete Montrose Sports coverage elsewhere in this issue, of course. The Venture-N now has free pool opening to closing Monday through Thursday. Richard Wiederholt of Basic Brothers Clothing is all excited about his new second location at 1220 Westheimer. And Quan Hua and his all-Chinese staff have opened the International Club Restaurant at 243 Westheimer. Tom Bennett,popularwaiteratthe House of Pies, is at Ben Taub hospital and needs blood. You can donate, regardless of your blood type. Just tell 'em its in the name of Tom Bennet (donor account 100-61- 60-1). Tom was hit riding his motorcycle on Mother's Day (he's a Texas Rider.) It was a "hit and run" case. Anyone with information can call Wayne with 520-8660. And as for the blood, go to room 119 at Ben Tuab, 8am-llpm. Mary's won the volleyball game but the real story was the cheerleading contest, judged by the Park Police last weekend. Congrats goes to the Drum . for the cheerleading honors. OtfUtWtf^r-U
