Three of the four defendants in the Feb. 12 cases paid fines and fees to­taling $122.50 each. Two of the defendants, residents of Pasadena and Deer Park, pleaded guilty; the third, a Friendswood resident, en­tered a plea of "no contest" to the charges. Story inside The New Voice ...

But something historical is taking place there-for Texas and for the lesbian and gay community. Glenn Maxey led a pack of thirteen candidates for a state repre­sentative seat and in another week he faces a runoff. If elected, Glenn would be­come the first openly gay or lesbian elect­ed official in Texas. This is the kind of first which marks the growth and maturity of the gay movement forequalrights.Pastexperiencetendsto establish that once the ice is broken such events become less a rarity. It might just mean that Houston, more liberal and open than Dallas, could be the likely lo­cale for the second step to our political le­gitimacy. A hot topic around Houston Cit­y Hall is the number and size of city coun­cil districts and the increasing demands of other minorities for greater represen­tation. It is time for the Houston lesbian and gay community to establish its foot-hold in the debates and prospects centering on council redistricting. Our community lacks the obvious visibility of other minor­ities and, despite the reputation of Montrose, we are not as clearly ghetto­ized as others. But the flip side of this ar­gument is that our community tends to vote in far higher proportions than Blacks, Hispanics or Asians. Also our community has a residual rep­utation for political activism, if somewhat dimmed by the 1985 referendum. Recent elections, particularly the votes for Ann Richards, demonstrate a continuing core of voting strength. This strength must be translated into clear voting patterns coin- I~ ...-::l-SHEER INSANITY• ~ OAOUIRI FACTORY WESTHEIMER 2 TNV/THE NEW\IOICE / FEBRUARY 22- 28. 1991 ciding with feasible district lines. Our community must also recognize the realities of the political game. Nothing is ever achieved politically by declaring oneself deserving. But as other minorities jockey for position and talk coalitions, it behooves our community to get into this game of politics with the purpose of creat­ing a district weighted to our interests. Another lesson we can learn from Maxey's race and from those of other gays elected elsewhere, is that no gay or lesbian candidate gets elected solely by laying claim to the gay vote. Every gay or lesbian elected official with whom we have knowledge all emphasize their achieving office through coalition build­ing with other minorities and by grass­roots work within the party system. Maxey, while an effective lobbyist for our community in recent years, also es­tablished his credentials with the Travis County Democratic Party. Most telling was his leading a Travis County effort for Richards-and delivering the largest plu-rality for her in the state. This is the kind of work all politicians understand, that and cold hard cash. So for starters, we can all do our ~rt to help Maxey-there will be a fundra1ser this Sunday afternoon at Santa Fe, and all volunteers would be welcome in Austin on election day to help tum out the vote. Nothing we can do right now would send a clearer message to friend and foe alike than the election of this openly gay man to the Texas House of Representatives. Then on to the Houston City Council. Nothing better assures us an open ear in City Hall than one attached to an openly gay woman or man. This should be our goal-now. 1424-CWestheimer (atWindsor) 522-5156 . . d • Books• Leather • Accessories • Necessities Video Sales Ir Rentals • SWlmwear • T-Shrrts • Magazines • Car 5 liDDUll ril~~D~l 1111111111111111 FUIRUARY 22-28, 1991 / lNV/THE NEW VOICE 3 'L.A. Story' gives fresh look at funny side of city By STEVE WARREN TNV Film Critic Ordinarily when reviewing a come­dy I quote a few of the best jokes, to give the reader an idea of the type of humor represented a nd, perhaps subconsciously, to get undue credit in the reader's mind for the jokes. Someone else ma y have written them but I'm the one who made you laugh with them. But I need some fun too, so I just sat back and enjoyed L.A. Story, in­stead of copying down the good lines. I remember there are two about women's breasts and two about men's testicles, but you'll have to see for yourself what they are. Except for the southern California settin g, L.A. Story could easily be a Woody Allen film. It has his kind of romantic sensibility surreal visuals literary referen ces '(heavy on th~ Shakespeare) and even a visual steal from Fellini (the opening shot of a giant hot dog carried over Los Angeles by helicopter as the statue of Christ was over Rome in La Dolce Vi­ta each country has its objects ofrev­erence). PHOTO BY TAI STAR PICTURES Los Angeles i• a magical backdrop against which Steue Martin plays a TV weatherman and Victoria Tennant stars as an Engl1Bh journalist. The two find love in the comedy "L.A. Story" Steve Martin, who also wrote the script, plays a "wacky" TV weather­caster wh o's been going with Marilu Henner for years. He realizes she and the job are wrong for him, but he doesn't want to deal with it while things appear to be going well in the ways that matter where the talk is shallow and the air is thick. One magical night a freeway traf­fic sign starts talking to Steve, and one magical afternoon he meets Vic- Newsline: a~e1mm 1111111111111111 toria Tennant, a British journalist, at brunch. Maybe she only seems sweet after the attitude j of gay mai­tre d' Eddie DeHarp, but he's in­stantly taken with her_ She's semi taken herself, by ex husband Rich­ard E. Grant, who is making a big pitch to win her back. Cut loose from his job and rela­tionship, Martin starts dating airheaded Sarah Jessica Parker, a bouncy creature who only stands still for closeups; but she just wants to have fun (to cite one of Parker's earlier films) and his heart isn 'tin it, even if other parts of his anatomy are. There are moments when the story bogs down briefly, but there's usual­ly another great gag seconds away in this buoyantly funny, rarely vi­cious look at the town that proves there's life on at least one other plan­et (it's even got its own atmosp~ere). Considering that all the L.A. Jokes have been done, Martin comes up with an amazing number that seem fresh. If this is his way of apologiz­ing for My Blue Heaven, I accept his apology.

Four men arrested under controversial Texas sodomy law By SH1'RI COHEN DARBONNE TNV &iltor Four men arrested Tuesday, Feb. 12, in two separate Houston area incidents were charged with homosexual conduct, marking the first time in several years that arrests have been made under Sec· tion 21.06, the state sodomy statute. All four cases were filed through Harris County Justice of the Peace Steve Phelps' office, Pct. 8, Position 2 (Clear Lake City). Homosexual conduct, under Section 21.06 of the Texas Penal Code, is a Class C misdemeanor which carries a $200 fine. Three of the four defendants in the Feb. 12 cases paid fines and fees totaling $122.50 each. Two of the defendants, resi­dents of Pasadena and Deer Park, plead­ed guilty· the third, a Friendswood res;. dent, ent~red a plea of "no contest" to the chargea. . The fourth defendant, whose case is pending, resides in Houston. Gay activist Ray Hill and Houston at­torney Phyllis Frye, both contacted Tueb­day by the man whose case is pending, said they had not heard of any 21.06 case in the Houston area for several years. Suzy Wagers of the Texas Human Rights Foundation, the legal organization whose challenge to the statute resulted in a lower court ruling in December declar­ing 21.06 unconstitutional, also said she has heard of no arrests under the law in recent years. Frye said Wednesday, Feb._13, that al­though she did not know detruls of the ar­rests she found it "weird" that the defen­dani: i were charged with 21.06 violations instead of the charges more commonly applied, "indecent expos~re" or "public lewdnerui" which carry stiffer penalties. "l reall~ have no idea why a (police of­ficer) would make an arrest under 21.06. Maybe he was just new and didn't know ~ ®'M 11.ts w~t!lma~m 1111111111111111 what he was doing;• she commented. Hill said although he was told the ar­rests oftwoofthemenoccurredina park. he believed "the incident was not suffi· ciently public" to warrant the other charges. "I would think that (the 21.06 charge) indicates this was a consensual act ... of sufficient privacy not to warrant (a charge of) public lewdness;· he said. Frye said one of the defendants con­tacted her, and that she advised him to speak to Hill. None of the four men had hired an attorney, but Hill said THRF at­torneys Patrick Wiseman and Margaret Tucker had expressed an interest. Wagers said Tucker, THRF's legal di­rector, was interested in finding out more about the Houston cases. Also. Houston THRF attorney Donald Skipwith was working on obtaining repre•entat1on for the pending case this week. During the trial of ~Morales et al w . the State of 'Iexas;• attorneys for the stale repeatedly contended that the law could not infringe upon the plruntiffs' rights because "it ib never enforced:' Ac­tivists said the Houston developments could be pivotal in an appeal of District Court Judge Paul Davis' Dec. 10 ruling on "Morales'.' "Naturally .. we now have a re.al hve pending homosexual conduct cnm1nal case;· said Hill. "(The case) could be a valuable asset in the appellate prOCebs:· he added. "We would have to be careful not to do any­thing in this (pending) case that would hurt our chances in an appeal. but we al­so have to be careful not to not do any· thing that would 'help m an appeal'.'

Also at Tuesday's meeting, members of the committee were surprised and sad­dened by the resignation ofHGLPW '91 co­chair Felix Garcia.

The goals, worded as adopted by the committee, are as follows: (1) Adoption of laws to provide for pro­tection of equal civil rights oflesbian and gay people and specific laws banning dis­crimination based on 6exual orientation. (2) Legal recognition of lesbian and gay relationships, including parental right,; and adoption, domestic partner­ships and same-sex marriages. (3) Support for the right oflesbian and gay people to serve without discrimina-tion m the armed forces, national and state guard, including law enforcement agencies throughout the state. (4) Passage and enforcement of hate crimes legislation to end violence and ha­rassment based on prejudice and hatred, especially as it applies to lesbian and gay people. (5) Legislative repeal of Section 21-06 of the Texa< Penal Code, which criminalizes lesbian and gay people for adult con•ensual homosexual conduct. (6) Reproductive freedom and the right to control our own bodies. I ~ t:i'Jti 11 U§ [IJ~t!JmD~!il 1111111111111111 (7) An end to discrimination against persons living with HIV, ARC and AIDS. (8) Substantial increases in funding for and easier access to effective AIDS prevention education, funding and ex­pansion for re•earch and a major revi­sion of the Texas health care delivery system, especially for the indigent. (9) Access and funding for new thera­pies, treatments and drugs for HIV dis­ease. (10) An end to all social, economic, judi­cial and legal oppression of lesbian and gay people of every race, gender, ability, class, ethnicity, ideology, transgenderal orientation and sexual orientation. (11) An understanding that the strug­gles of gay and lesbian people are affect· ed by racism and sexism which oppresses people of color and women. The libera­tion oflesbian and gay people is linked to the struggle against racism, sexism and discrimination on the basis of ethnicity. We call for an end to these problems on all levels within the gay and lesbian commu­nity and in the larger society, and sup­port the right of self-determination for all people. The march will be held at noon on March 17. Second 'Friends' community-wide benefit set for May 10 'That's What Friends Are For II: Cele­brating a New Decade of Hope;• an eve­rung of entertainment to raise money for several community charities, has been set for May 10 at Rich's, 2401 San Jacinto. Last year's "That What Friends Are For" benefit raised over $3,000 for Hous­ton AIDS and gay/ lesbian groups, and this year the organizers are hoping to double that amount. thanks to reduced expenses and donations from communi­ty organizations and businesses, said founder Larry Garrett. The 1990 event was held at the Tower Theater. Garrett said organizers chose to hold the benefit, whjch they hope will be­come an 11.Ilnual event, at Rich's trus year becaW:le of the club's high quaJjty sound and lighting system. The May 10 date was chosen because it did not conflict with other scheduled community event&, he said. Beneficiaries of the event this year are the Colt 45'e AIDS Trouble Fund, Body Positive, Montrose Activity Center, and Texas Gay Rodeo A8'1ociation, which will split the proceeds. Non-perishable goods will also be collected for AIDS Founda­tion Houston's Stone Soup Food Pantry during the event. Garrett said moetofthe costs of putting on the event will be do­nated: there will be no paid entertain­ers- and thia year, no paid caterer. Garrett said coordinators are counting on donallons (many already pledged) of party tray• from individuals and busi­nes. cs m the community. However, the group has also committed to "putting on a first class show trus ye~· with "top-notch" entertainers scheduled to perform, including popular singer Marsha Carlton. "We want everybody to walk away from this event feeling that they got their money's worth;' he said. The show will consist of three seg­ment&, a comedy showcase, live perform­ers and illusioniel8, and will include na­tionally known entertainers, said Garrett. A silent auction is also scheduled, with auction items donated by area business­es. While some businesses have offered items and services for the benefit and auction, additional contributions could make the event even more successful, said Garrett, noting there would be no de­ductions from ticket sales pay for expens­es. All donations will be recognized in the event's program, he aaid. Coordinators of "That's What Friends Are For II" include Garrett, Ronnie Diaz, Lady Victoria Lust, Annise Parker (hen· efit treasurer) and Raymond Gonzales (Parker's assistant), Dave Hemmer and Wayne Grabein. The benefit is also open to "anyone who wanl8 to participate" in putting it on, noted Garrett. Garrett aaid one of the main purposes of the fundraiser is to bring together peo­ple involved in the community's many diverse organizations. The event is not sponsored by any one group, and the tra­dition of multiple benefiCJaries will prob­ably continue, he said. ~Some people ask why we don't just 1 ~w.it111 uy ~mmacm 1111111111111111 choose one beneficiary (each year), and be able to donate more money, instead of having to split the proceeds;• he said. "But one of the things we're trying to do is bring together the many rufferent ele­ments of the community'.' Doore open for the event at 8:00 p.m. Friday, May 10, with show time at 9:00 p.m. Ticket& will be $15 in advance, $20 at the door, with a limited num her of VIP tables available for reservation $100 per table (seats four).

However, Berriozabal prefers to speak only in general terms, such as "human rights:' rather than "gay rights;' and seems intent to avoid alienating the vote of the city's anti· gay establishment. She believes it is sufficient to work on gay complaints about police violence, while putting off for the time being the issue of the city's policy on discrimination agwnst gays on the police force. Though she has served on the San Antonio City Council for 10 years, she was not aware of the experience of the Houston City Council in 1985. In the Hou•ton experience, which some aay politically ruvided the gay and lesbi· an community there, city council enacted an ordinance against discrimination on the basis of sexual preferi•nce, only to have it repealed by popular referendum. It remains to be eeen whether any of the candidates for mayor ofthia city will openly address gay iasues, or even dare, however guarded and can•fully worded, to respond to inquiries on their positiona on gay rights. Meanwhile, moat gay lead­ers say it is still too soon to make predic· hons or endorsements m the April city elections.

Council voted without opposition to include these businesses in an amend· ment to the ordinance, subjecting them to the same restrictions that apply to other sexually oriented busine88es, such as top­less bars and modeling stuclios. The amendment, said a Houston attor­ney who reprei;ents one gay men's adult theater, could clo•e all such businesses in the Montrose area who•e primary sales are "overtly adult-oriented:' Activist Ray Hill, who recently has been focusing on Fir•t Amendment clis· putes, took the interpretation a step fur­ther, saying the extended application is unconstitutional and unenforceable. Hill also suggested the restrictions could be applied to "borderline" businesses, in· eluding video rental outlets and book stores which offer a mixed merchandise line, under the amendment. Although the amendment had been ta· bled for two weeks at a previous council meeting Feb. 6, Hill said he was not sur­prised it was brought up for a vote last week. With the amendment, these businesses have a distance requirement from schools, churches, day care centers and residential areas as well as restrictions on locating near other sexually oriented businesses. Sexually oriented businesses in violation of the orclinance must move, or they will be out of business after they have recovered their initial investment. Councilmember Christin Hartung, who chairs the city's SOB committee, called the measure "another giant step forward for pre><erving neighborhoods and ensuring an improved quality oflife for all Houstonians. The committee which also includes Dale Gorcynski and Vince Ryan, entered the motion for the amendment, which was seconded by Councilmember Sheila Jackson Lee. Attorney John Nix said the measure "definitely" could apply to French Quar­ter Theater, 3201 Louisiana, and that a provision that the businesses cannot be located in predominantly residential are­as probably covers all Montrose bookstores which have arcades. However, Nix said he did not believe the restrictions would affect bookstores which did not have arcades and whose business was not "overtly" sexually ori· ented. He said that the amendment might include sales outlets for adult vide­os. Criminal penalties for violations, while conceivably enforceable, would be clifficult for the city to enforce, said Nix, adcling that the city would "have a hard time getting any (Harris County) crimi· nal court" to handle the cases. But Hill said restrictions were broad enough to include all adult businesses and that the city was setting a censor-slup precedent. He declared, "They'll go after the Mapplethorpe photographs next;• a reference to the recent arrest and trial of a Cincinnati museum director who exhibited the late gay photogra· pher's work, for violating that city's ob­scenity ordinance. In asking council members not to ap· prove the amendment, Hill insisted its provisions could not be enforced and that this fact had been proven and "would be proven again'.' Nix said Hill's concerns involved free­dom of speech. but pointed out that the or­clinance regulates location, not content of materials sold by the busine,ses. "It's a land use ordinance ... (andl purely within the police powers of the i;tate and city;' he said. In a letter distributed to council mem· hers at the meeting, Hill called the ordi· nance unenforceable and boasted that he would "be back to say 'I told you so"' if the law is found uncon.<Ulutional in court. Star Nite '91 to be held at Westheimer Art Fest location The Star Nite '91 Pride Festival will have a central Montro"° location this year, the lot and grounds of Kwik Kopy at MontroRe and Lovett, according to Ron· nie Diaz, feRtival executive director. Diaz announct>d plans for the festival at the Hou•ton1Gay Lesbian Pride Week '91 general meeting Tue.day night. Star Nite, held on the last weekend of pride week, is sponsored by the Montrose Ac­tivity Center. The K wik Kopy location is best known as the pre•ent site of the Westheimer Art Festival juried art show, and was used in previous years as a site for post-gay pride parade •venf.8. Thiti: year's festival will include athlet­ic events and an art show as well as well as food, merchandise and information booths and has a working budget of $25,000, which Diaz called "conserve· tive" compared to last year. Star Nite '90, held on the grounds of the Metropolitan Multi-Service Center, cost over $40,000 to produce and ended $4,000 in the red, said Diaz. "Last year, we were very optimis· tic ... thisyear, we're still being optimistic, but more realistic;• she said. The event will still be produced on a grand scale, said Diaz, with a big-name entertainer, high-quality staging and lights and profeRSional concessions. Planners hope the festival, a fundraiser for MAC's building fund, will make mon· ey this year to go toward establishing a gay/ lesbian community center. The Star Nitt> 11teerinK committtt has asked Larry Lingle, pre8ident of the Houston Gay/ Lesbian Political Caucus, and Houston City Councilmember Sheila Jackson Lee to serve as the event'a " honorary c~hair-.'' Diaz r• ported. Lingle ho• already accepted the invitation, but the event's steering com· mittee has not yet received Lee's reply, she said. The festival will still be a tw<Klay event, but this year will open in the after­noon. The festival is scheduled to be held from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23.

DaVlS renamed the building, formerly the Center for A Positive Lifestyle, last month and invited community groupi; to use it as a meeting site. Presently, two spmtua: groups, Dignity Houston and the Houston Mission Church, are hold· mg meetings there, and the building lS available for social, CJVlc and spiritual gatherings and private partJes, he said. Tho.:gh not actually a nightclub, the weekly events will mimic the relaxed, friendly social atmosphere found m a gay bar-"aplacetomeetnndtalk,Jaugh and see a show'' DaVIs e:xplamed that he "wanted to proVlde an cntcrtammg social environ· ment" for people who do not drink. or are in recovery from alcohol or drug addic­tions. He said the new venture, which debuted with a "sneak preview" private reception on Feb. 15, will provide a social atmosphere similar to a gay bar, but wtthout the alcohol and the "hustle" one finds ma bar. "I don't want anyone to tlunk that I'm trying to judge prople (who drink);' said Dav1S. ·1 bat's not what we're domg. I just thought 1t would be nice to have a place for (non-drinkers) to go, to have fun and socialize:' The gatherings, as yet unnamed, will feature nightclub-style entertainment, including dancers, some live music, and "drag"-an art form especially close to DavlS' heart. DaVlS and hlS twtn brother Don enter­tained m St. LoUIS, Mo. as female imper· sonators m the 1970's, he explained. Donna Drag (Don) and Lana Kuntz (Ron) were well known figures in St. Lou­lS gay bars in that era, and Davis hopes to recapture the warmth and camarade­ne of the lifestyle-without the alcohol The fact that Don is now in recovery was an added inspiration for the project, he S81d. "I started thinking about tlus (project) toward the end oflast year, thinking that it would really be nice for p<'Ople to have this sort of a pince to go to without being hustled or pressured (t.o dnnk);' said Da· V18. He srud that non-alcoholic refresh· ments would be available at the gather­ings.

Reflecting on the anti-gay policiei; of the U S. Armed Forces, Capt. Lauren Garza (not her real name) wavered a lit­tle in her otherwise forcefully delivered, wrenchingly patriotic commentary. As a committed officer in the U.S. Army Re­serves, Garza wants to be involved with the Allied war effort in the Persian Gulf, a desire she tried to explain 88 concisely as possible-in true military style-on Monday, as the world tried to analyze the chances of an impending, dev88tat­ing ground wai: As a gay woman who recently validat­ed her committed relatio118hip with an­other woman in a holy union ceremony, however, she realizes there are other con­cerns. Garza, known to friend;; 88 a workaholic in her career, church and vol· unteer activities, is also now in training for a new job, and is still balancing nu· merous mvolvements with gay and le•­bian community events. Nevertheless, she said, "If I were sin· gle, I would go in an mstant'.' Deeply spiritual, she said she has prayed long hours about the conflict go­ing on in her own mind. "I'd say the only reason I haven't al­ready (volunteered) is becaw;e of my lov­e~ · she said. "I've made a commitment to her for the retit of my life .• it wouldn't be fair to put my life on the Hne without con· sidering her WlBhes;• she said. While her partner support.. her and "doe.; her best to understand" her way of thinking, Garza said she has so far le8pected the wishes of her lover, choosing to let her de­Clllion on active duty wait. Time to decide is a luxury of her high­ly- speciali<ed unit, which will not itself deploy. Garza's unit has a high-ranked structure-le•s than ten percent enlisted personnel. The rest are officers-intense­ly trained experts- many of whom have been called up individually. "I know I could be called up at any lime;· Garza said. "If there LS a ground conflict...! think my chance• of being called would be much greater: I have told my commanding officer that I don't want to be used as 'filler' (in a domei;tic b88e). If I'm going to give up my job and every­thing else I have here, I want to go to the Persian Gulf. " ... My friend.! at church say they are praymg for me not to have to go. What I believe is that if God wants me to go, I wilL.iC not, then I won't:' she continued. Garza doe.; not hetiitate in stating her Capt. Laurtn Garza (right) hao been • truuling to balance her /cue for her partner, her country and her community m her personal decisicns under the pre•sure of the Middle Ea.I War. (The photo, taken m Honduras in 1985, shows her 1nspectmg the M1l1tary Police shift supervisor prior to her platoon gomg on duty) belief that America•a pottt.ur4" in thtt Mid· die East conflict is necessary and correct. She is unflinching in defending the war effort as part of a larger picture that will, ironicaJly, lead to greater chances of world peace. Garza ~-the U.S. military 88 a guardian force whose abilities help to pretierve that fragile peace. "In training, if we become the best that we can be ... that helpt; to assure world peace:· she said "I see victory (of AJlied foreeti) as a step toward peace. I think it would make oth· er leaders in the future think twice before doing what Saddam has done. It's unfor­tunate that it has to happen this way ... ! don't pray for war: I pray for peace, al­ways. " ... Saddam Hus•ein 1s despicable. What he has done to his own people, and t.o thot1e around him, i• intmcu11abltt. Something had to be done to let (other leaders) know that he would not be al· lowed to get away with it." Garza said her background-she came to the United States from Cuba as a polit· ical refugee-is partly retiponsible for her deep patriotism. "I love this county. I think perhaps I take Iese for granted (about the u.s.J:' she said. She also love• the military, a way of life for her for over a decade. Entering the Re­serveti out of college, Garza spent four years on active duly. Counting ROTC, she says proudly, "I have•pent 12yeara serving my country:• Garza added that she has many gay friends already serving in the Gulf. Her views are not exactly the nonn in the national gay and lesbian community, Newsline: iitil~ ~~aa~ 1111111111111111 whose organizational leaders, including the National Gay and Lesbian task Force, have stated opposition to the war: Gays and AIDS activists, fueled by the war effort's devastation of U.S. dometitic programs through loss of funding and leadership, have hitched gay causes to the peace movement. Gays participated in recent demonstrations against the war in Houston, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco-including Garza's own brother, a San ~'rancisco resident. "My gay brother and I are complete opp08ites, in our lifetityle and beliefs;· she said. "My brother has, in fact, been very active in the anti-war demonstra­tions in San Francisco. I think this just shows that we (gays and lesbians) are re­ally a very diverse community. "I think the people who are involved m (the demonstrations) are a very impor­tant part of the proeetis. I think what they're doing is right and neces· sary ... they provide a balance, we need to see both the pro and con. And if there is a possibility of peace, without having to go into a ground battle ... perhaps this ob­jective can be helped by (the pacifists') efforts:' she added.
