Transcript Montrose News September 25,1981 / Montrose voice 3 Montrose night at the Circus confirmed The MONTROSE VOICE has completed an agreement with Circus Vargus for "Montrose Night" Monday, Oct. 5, when the circus plays at Westwood Mall. Circus Vargus is the largest traveling tent circus in the country. Other circuses, some of which are larger, no longer play in tents but play in stadiums and colesiums. "A circus is not a circus if it isn't in a tent," said David Greenes, an official of the circus. "Circus Vargus did a similiar 'gay night' arrangement with Chicago Gay Life when they were in that city and it worked out quite well," said VOICE publisher Henry McClurg. "They're very good people." The circus will, however, be open to the general public that night too. Tickets are on sale at all Ticketron locations around town and at Westwood Mall. Tickets will be on sale next week at several Montrose locations, including the offices of the Montrose Voice, and they'll be on sale the night ofthe circus. "There are three prices of tickets—all inexpensive—but we urge our readers to buy the higher or middle class tickets for the best seats, so we can all be near the three rings," McClurg said. The tent holds 5600 people, a spokesperson for Circus Vargus said. Danburg appointed to commission AUSTIN—Texas state Representative Debra Danburg of Montrose has been appointed by House Speaker Bill Clayton to serve on the Texas Commission on Interstate Cooperation. The primary duty of the commission, created in 1941, is to carry forward the participation of Texas as a member ofthe Council of State Governments which is an organization of local and state governments and the federal government. In addition, the commission is authorized to study intergovernmental problems. Tomlin at the Tower Lily Tomlin will present her one-woman show, Appearing Nightly, at the Tower Theater, 1201 Westheimer, Oct. 6-18, the theater announced. Lowly armadillo to finally get its title AUSTIN—The armadillo will finally be proclaimed the official Texas mascot Saturday, Oct. 3, when Montrose-area state Senator Jack Ogg serves as governor for a day. That is, if nothing goes wrong. Ogg, who was elected president pro tern of the Senate this year, should be the ranking state official Oct. 3 when both the governor and lieutenant governor are scheduled to be out of the state. As acting governor, Ogg can issue a proclamation on the armadillo issue, one of Ogg's pet issues, naming it the official state mascot. Ogg tried to get the legislature to pass a law giving the armored mammal special status but was defeated several times. Ogg said he will celebrate Oct. 3 with a picnic on the Capitol grounds.

"Later. I'm the after-hours show." —•— You would have never known that the Loading Dock and the Different Drum were victims of law enforcement abuses a week earlier. Their crowds last weekend broke records—as apparently everyone came to inspect the famous Drum's loft and the LD's red line. —•— CYNICAL CONFESSIONS: The Mouth is beginning to worry about the Wildwood Saloon—an enjoyable little bar that could use more business. The Wildwood is a great early evening or happy hour club. It's officially "Mouth recommended." —•— We've been asked about how we get along with our competitor, TWT. Well, we get along quite well, thank you, in a professional but competitive way. We get along in the same way Parade gets along with Babylon or the Drum gets along with Mary's. We all manage, keeping our minds on the bigger objective: a better life for our community. Yes, there's competition. And it is sometimes lively. But it's always friendly. (Glad we're not in Atlanta. They've got FOUR' weekly gay publications now, all fighting like wild cats.) —•— You can count Jack Heard out of the election. Yes, folks, there's no way Jack Heard can now win, as he was endorsed last Sunday by the Houston Chronicle. How can we say that? Do you realize how long it's been since the Chronicle has endorsed a winning mayoral candidate? Many moons. If memory is correct, it's been at least five elections. —•— Andy Mills and his Montrose Symphonic Orchestra put on a superb performance last weekend, but Andy informs the Mouth that the Symphony is broke—$5000 in the hole. Contributions are welcome, he says, as are ideas for fund- The VOICE is going to the circus. Monday, Oct. 5, 8:00 p.m., is Montrose Night at Circus Vargas at Westwood Mall (that's out the Southwest Freeway, past Sharpstown). This is a real three-ring circus, under the country's largest traveling big top.
