HOUSTON - The KS/AIDS Foundation of Houston has just established offices in the Liberty Bank Building, 1001
Westheimer, Suite 193, and began operation of a 24-hou r telephone service
easily remembered as (713) 524-AIDS.
Questions, referrals and donations
should be directed into this telephone
funnel, Michael B. Wilson, executive office manager, summarized for TWT
NEWS.
Co-chairs of the Volunteer Services
Committee are Ted Hewes and Bill
Scott, who outlined some of the patient
services now available.
New services include a support system for health professions, a su pport
system for patients, a support system
for lovers, friends and families of patients, plus legal, financial, housing,
transportation and food resource services.
"The foundation is in need of volunteers to help with these programs, as
well as to help staff the new office in
Liberty Bank," TWT NEWS was told.
KS/ AIDS FOUNDATION
URGES AIDS FUNDING
HOUSTON - On Friday, May 27,16
informative pages on AIDS were taken
to 16 City Hall offices by Michael B.
Wilson, president of the KS/AIDS Foundation, and Sue Lovell, board member
of the Gay Political Caucus.
They visited with the offices of
mayor, comptroller and each of the 14
City Councilmembers to present an updated education package on AIDS.
Each delivery contained a personal letter from the foundation.
Wilson stressed to TWT NEWS that the
City Hall visits were purely informational and educational in nature, and
were not to be construed as "lobbying
or participating."
The topic is a sensitive one. There is
a difference between educating city
council and lobbying for funds. The taxexempt status of the KS/AIDS Foundation "hangs in the balance," Wilson
explained.
An upcoming vote on the city budget
is to include approximately $70,000 in
the City Health Department budget for
AIDS projects.
GPC URGES MORE
AIDS FUNDING
HOUSTON - This city's GPC passed a resolution May 18 asking the U.S.
Congress to allocate more funds for
AIDS research.
Copies of the resolution, which is
similar to one passed by the San Francisco City Council, will be sent to Houston Mayor Whitmire, Houston city council members, and the Harris County
congressional delegation.
"The mayor is personally committed
to doing all she can, and GPC-endorsed council members are 150 percent
supportive,"
GPC president Larry
Bagneris told TWT NEWS.
Basically, the resolution "urges that
significant new funds be reallocated
immediately within the Department of
Health and Human Services to greatly
increase AIDS research," Bagneris
stated.
Bagneris also told TWT NEWS that
"hopefully, this resolution will help

speed up funding for AIDS research. It
is part of GPC's continuing effort to
lend support to the fundraising and
educational efforts of the KS/AIDS
Foundation," formerly the KS/AIDS
committee.
Bagneris further explained that the
GPC became heavily involved in the
AIDS issue last February when he, vicepresident Marion Coleman, and Polltcal
ACtion Coordinator Terry Harris, met
with Mayor Whitmire.
"It was the number one item on the
agenda," Bagneris said. After receiving
the mayor's commitment, the group
gave elected officials time to work on
the problem, Bagneris noted.
Since that time, the mayor has
directed the City Health Department to
look into the AIDS problem. An AIDS
Task Force has also been established.
Mayor Whitmire also reaffirmed her
support in a letter read at the May 2
AIDS vigil.
Efforts are also underway to include
$71,000for an AIDS data-gathering project in the new city budget. Bagneris
also told GPC members he had discussed AIDS funding with U.S. Representative
Mickey Leland several
months ago.
Leland recently became a co-sponsor
of the Waxman Bill, which seeks to set
aside $40 million for emergency health
crisis research.
CHE URGES MORE
AIDS FUNDING
HOUSTON - Recently, an informal
gathering of representatives of the Citizens for Human Equality (CHE), the
Houston GPC, and other health-oriented organizations, met to hear information about the City's Health Department
budget for 1984. The proposed AIDS
documentation and surveillance project
is not currently included in the budget
according to several sources with the
Health Department and at City Hall.
Steve Shiflett, president of CHE, provided the information which was given
him by Health Department Officials.
"The project is on the 'wish list,''' he
said, "and is in competition with issues
important to other groups."
At the gathering, a network among
different groups (CHE, GPC, KS/AIDS
Foundation) was begun, and it was
agreed that more interaction among the
groups was necessary in order to provide a unified effort on the AIDS issue.
A follow-up meeting has been scheduled.
Shiflett also announced his group
was sponsoring the Committee for Public Health Awareness to network with
professional organizations and individuals on AIDS, and that the committee
will serve as a lobbying effort to employ
the necessary government resources to
obtain funding and services at all levels
of government.
The committee's first project was a
constituent letter to 4,500 people asking them to inform Houston Mayor
Whitmire that AIDS is our priority, and
that the Health Department project for
AIDS documentation and surveillance
deserves funding. "This project of the
Health Department would provide the
epidemiologic data necessary in order
to generate research grants, as well as
provide data that would justify the need
for patient care services, screening and
coordination among health care professionals," Shiflett told TWT NEWS.
"We mailed the letter on the evening
of ABC-TV's 20/20 expose on AIDS, so
we feel that the response will be significant," Shiflett continued. "Mayor
Whitmire should get the message that
we want the project taken off the 'wish
list' and included in the final budget.
She is sensitive to the AIDS issue, but
she has every department competing
for these same funds. "We must play
the game like these power brokers play
it. Call and/or write Mayor Whitmire and
the city council now!"
Houston City Hall's phone number is
(713)222-3011,and Mayor Whitmire's office number is (713) 222-3141.
"Politicians respond to lobbying, as
evidenced by the recent Public Utility
reform movement ," Shiflett noted.

HOUSTON - The Committee for
Public Health Awareness has been
formed by the Citizens for Human
Equality (CHE), and offices opened in
the Liberty Bank Building. Organized to
solicit funds for AIDS research and patient services, TWT NEWS was assured
that a full accounting of all funds raised would be published. "We haven't the funds within our
community alone to take care of the
many programs," project coordinator
Joe Porro explained to TWT NEWS. Therefore, beginning last May 27, yellow
business reply envelopes were distributed at various gay businesses outside
metropolitan Houston.
The envelopes are labeled Lobbying
Fund for AIDS Research. Additional
envelopes may be obtained by calling
the new committee at (713) 528-6333.
D/FW GAY HISTORY

FORT WORTH - Phil Johnson, metroplex historian of gay culture, presented a wonderful slide show presentation
on "The Gay Rights Movement in the
Metroplex" last Tuesday, May 31 at the
Center for the Community, 2412 lipscomb in this city.
The slide presentation was in preparation for Gay Pride Week, and the public was invited. As always, Mr. Johnson
was his usual humorous and informative self. "We need more Phil Johnson's
to document gay life," one observer
noted. "He's a wonderful man who gets
involved."
Larry Leutwyler acted as the coordinating minister, TWT NEWS learned.

"Unless testing occurs and a cure is
found soon, there will be no Gay Pride
Week to celebrate," several bar owners
stated. "Since gay pride started in the
bars, and the bars are the foundation of
the gay subculture, we want to continue
to show our appreciation to our patrons
and friends."
The Dallas Tavern Guild told of their
planned activities for Gay Pride Week,
which include a June 26 climax of a bar
owners appreciation carnival and picnic.
Bars who have joined the new guild,
as reported by Richard Rogers of TWT
NEWS, are Snake Pit, Round-Up, Eighth

SMU GAY ·GROUP
TO BE REVIEWED
DALLAS - The Gay and Lesbian
Support Organization of Southern Methodist University (SMU)appealed to president Donald Shields last week for help
in getting the organization recognized
as an official campus group.
Progress was made, TWT NEWS learned, as Shields agreed to review the appeal carefully. However, he added that
he "must continue to consider the
views of the United Methodist Church"
in making his "final decision."
Shields explained to reporter Jane
Wolfe of the Dallas Morning News. "I
believe both the very vocal opponents
as well as the proponents have not
voiced the complexities of my view that
we must consider the views of those
with the United Methodist Church who
are opposed to recognizing this group."
The appeal represents GLSSO's third
attempt to gain recognition. The first attempt was turned down by a caustic
17-11 vote by the student senate on
April 19. A second attempt came on
May 3, when the appeal was denied.
The entire affair has been a red hot
subject, debated furiously, and demonstrated about repeatedly.
ALGPC ELEeTS
NEW LEADERS
AUSTIN - On May 24, the Austin
Gay/Lesbian Gay Political Caucus (ALGPC) elected new steering committee
members. Marvin Prevost, out-going
male co-chair of the organization, presided over the meeting, which was attended by only 21 members, TWT NEWS
reported.
After hearing Nancy Lasel, representing a gay-tolerant church, request
ALGPC support and the establishment
of a membership committee, the floor
was opened for nominations to the
steering commitee. Due to the extremely poor turnout at this important meeting, all but one at-large representative's
position were uncontested, and three
positions could not be filled.
Janet Cobb and Juan Ochoa were
elected as female and male co-chairs,
respectively. Also elected were Jim
Oberkrom, political action committee
chair; Steve Quiroz, program chair; Gary
Fitzsimmons, legislative chair; Donna
Johnson and Janna Zumbrun, at-large
positions reserved for former steering
committee members; and Melita Abrego and Mary Summerall, at-large positions. Everyone elected, except Ochoa,
has served on the steering committee
at some time during the past five years.
Summerall had opposed Jay Cherin
in the at-larqe place 4 position in a
heated contest. Cherin is the present
chair of Gay Students Association at
U.T. and an officer of TGLSOC, the
statewide gay organization for students. Two weeks ago, Cherin had endorsed a letter which appeared in TWT
criticizing the ALGPC. Cherin said he
"hoped ALGPC would change its focus
from partisan politics to serving the gay
community."
Elizabeth Maclain, out-going female
co-chair, and other community leaders,
including Cherin, told TWT NEWS that
they are hopeful that the changes from
partisanship to serving the Austin gay
community's political needs can happen from within the organization.

Dear TWT:
Don Sanders, in response to your letter
to TWT the week of May 27 [Vol. 9, No. 10],
concerning the AIDS Vigil, I would say you
obviously missed the whole point of the
Vigil.
I was there not to convince some diety
of our needs, but to convince some
politicians, and to show support for our
community and those who are ill with
AIDS, and especially to show concern for
those who have died from AIDS.
What difference does the format make?
Our statement was firm, loving and
uplifting. If you have a plan to achieve the
same results for the masses of
unbelievers, I suggest you get on with it.
NOW is not the time to belittle the efforts
of others. Our community needs
everyone's help and support.

Anti-ALGPC
Dear TWT:
I sent handwritten letters to the entire
Travis County delegation expressing my
opposition to HB·2138. To date, I have
received no reply from ALGPC darlings
Wilhelmena Delco and Gonzolo Barrientos,
or from Terral Smith, who sits on the
committee which we hope will entomb this
bill forevermore.
Gerald Hill wrote a lukewarm, but
passible response, saying he planned not
to support the bill. Only Bob Barton, Jr.
expressed vigorous opposition to the bill,
pledging to "do all I can to defeat this
ridiculous bilL" His response is all the
more courageous since his district is
mostly to the south of Travis County,
centered in San Marcos, where human
rights is largely an untested issue.
I agree that ALGPC does not represent
the Austin gay community. We need a
lobbying effort that will not strike secret
deals and will demand candidates with gay
rights credentials-not
just standing as
liberal Democrats.

Paid Twice
Dear TWT:
During the last week of January my
lover passed away, a victim of AIDS.
Having realized my worst fears, I thought
the bad times were behind me; not so! I
requested the services of Hyde Park
Funeral Directors and paid for those
services in full. After the bill was paid, I
was not-consulted aboutany specifics;
instead, my mother-in-law was contacted

and she was allowed to add additional
charges to the bill I had already paid, even
though I was not asked if I could afford
thoSe charges.
To this date I have not received my
lover'S ashes, even though I have legal
papers from Harris County Probate Court
appointing me independent executor of my
lover's estate. What has happened to
human rights and the law? Watch out for
these money hungry professionals with the
warm handshakes and soft faces-they
really don't care about us!

In Memoriam
Dear TWT:
One of my earliest memories of coming
out in Houston five years ago was being
dragged to a party at the home of Geoff
Thurman and Dennis Bergen. Geoff and
DenniS were partying on Fire Island that
Labor Day weekend ... the two lovers had
generously left their home open for their
friends to enjoy.
I subsequently met many wonderful
people in Houston, a close-knit-family who
showed me some of the best times of my
life. Among those people was Geoff
Thurman.
From the moment I met Geoff I was
intrigued by him.... I was amazed at
Geoff's vitality and the way people seemed
to be drawn to him. Geoff was always
surrounded by friends because he was
himself generous, caring and personable.
My heart goes out to my Houston
friends-and especially to Dennis-who
were much closer to Geoff than I. There is
an empty place, a deep hurt in our lives
because this free spirit is no longer with
us.
But the pain of losing Geoff will be
somewhat alleviated, I think, if we continue
to care about each other in the generous
and energetic way that was so
characteristic of Geoff.

Testing for AIDS
Dear TWT:
As a concerned physician involved with
the problem of AIDS both locally and
nationally, I feel that I must comment on
several issues with regard to testing for
AIDS in people who have no symptoms.
TWT JUNE 3 • 9. 1983
The first issue is that screening or
testing for AIDS, especially by means of a
blood test, currently should not be
considered reliable. In a letter to the editor
of the New England Journal of Medicine in
December of 1982, Dr. Roger Enlow
(currently New York Mayor Koch's advisor
on gay and lesbian health problems) and I
addressed this issue. There are several
tests being used to evaluate AIDS patients.
One of these tests is a study of J-cells,
which tend to be found in lower amounts
of AIDS patients. When a laboratory offers
J-cell testing to non-ill people, whether gay
or straight, it implies that this test is a
standardized evaluation of one's immune
system, capable of predicting the risk of
AIDS. However, data on J-cell testing is
still to be completely evaluated and further
research is needed if it is to be a
satisfactory screening test. In fact, there is
now some evidence that some people may
have temporarily lower numbers of Tcells
after some viral infections but return to
normal in time. Thus, if someone is
otherwise healthy but has an abnormal
J-cell test, this may not necessarily
indicate that he has AIDS. In addition, if
someone has normal T·cells, there is
currently nothing to indicate that he will
not get AIDS.
The second issue is that in most cases,
this type of testing is ordered by a
physician to evaluate a patient. When the
doctor gets back the results, he or she
needs to determine if those results are
normal or abnormal. This depends in part
on the doctor's judgment of the condition
of the patient. Thus, anyone who has any
symptoms of AIDS, or wishes to be
checked for AIDS, should see a physician
and not just go to a laboratory for a blood
test.
Thirdly, because of AIDS, there have
been and will be attempts by many
individuals in both the gay and straight
communities who will try to make use of
the fear of AIDS as a means of making
money from the gay community. Just
because someone says they are doing
something for or about AIDS, does not
necessarily mean that they have the
interests of gay people at heart. Some
people may be simply capitalizing on their
fears.

Though there may be flaws in this little lotus blossom of a book from Japan,
its overall beauty and intrigue may be
its most rewarding feature. Saikaku
Ihara wrote these short stories about
the love between samurai in the late
17th century, and the stories were first
available in the West in London in 1928
as part of a set entitled Eastern Love.
A second book is included, an anthology of popular geisha folk songs, with
the title, Songs of the Geisha, unrelated
to Ihara's works.
These tales are taken from various
TWT JUNE 3 - 9, 1983
TWT JUNE 3 - 9, 1983
other Ihara works, such as Glorious
Tales of Pederasty and Tales of the
Samurai Spirit. All have been translated
by E. Powys Mathers, noted for translating The Book of the Thousand Nights
and One Night. This translation was
rendered from a French translation by
Ken Sato, from the Japanese, so the exact meaning of his (Ihara's) wording and
intent may be obscured by the translation through an intermediary language.
One of Ihara's novels, written in 1682,
is Japan's first true novel: Life of a
Satyr. His book, Comrade Loves ... , is
reviewed here primarily for its historical
interest, but also to demonstrate the
depth and beauty of Japanese culture
and the universality of gayness in all
cultures. In fact, entertaining as the
stories may be, the introduction conPAGE 23

taining the cultural history surrounding
homosexuality in Japan at that time is
equally fascinating, or possibly even
more so.
The West's mining of ideas and literature from the Orient proceeds into all
aspects of philosophy, religion, psychology and mysticism. The entire perspective of holistic medicine owes its
generation here to the Eastern view of
man, his mind and body as one. Those
familiar with Japanese thought and custom will better appreciate the short
stories, events and characters contained in them. The ritual of Hara-kiri is
mentioned often in a few of the stories,
due to the value held of honor over life
itself, and the "reality" with which the
Japanese viewed the spirit world and
their ancestors.
As Terence Barrow, Ph.D., states in
the introduction, " ... the theme is the
homosexual love of samurai for samurai or the love of samurai for page or
court boy bent on becoming a samurai
.. to the old Japanese such love among
samurai was quite permissible. The
sons of samurai families were urged to
form homosexual alliances while youth
lasted, and often these loves matured
into lifelong companionships .... In the
traditional setting they were highly
regarded."

who was also homosexual, was Yukio
Mishima; his book (one of a tetralogy),
Spring Snow, was reviewed here a few
months ago. He very clearly "represents a strange admixture of the bushido spirit [embodied in the code of the
samurai) and the homosexual urge to
love comrades in arms with intense devotion to a cause." He is an example of
the people Ihara writes about, now well
known in the literary world.
Unfortunately, the dark side of Japanese culture was its disdain for women,
who were for breeding, while boys were
for pleasure. "Women were excluded
from important arts because they were
of little social importance. In the circumstances it was fitting that men
should seek men for their most intimate
life."
This is best seen in the Songs of the
Geisha, who tell of their lack, or loss,
of love for the men they service. The
translation of what amounts to short
poems, seldom follows a central idea
or topic, probably due to the inherent
differences in thought in Western and
Eastern cultures, and thus is difficult to
understand.
Many of the stories in Comrade
Loves of the Samurai are poignant, the
characters always courageous, and, by
reading this book, the enlightenment of
the West continues.

This interview came about in a most unusual way. I was visiting an old friend of mine in
Texas City a few weeks ago. author Dale Young, who has written guidebooks for Houston
and Texas. While sitting on a pier fishing, I noticed this cheerful lady sitting a way down on
the same pier. We waved and eventually began chatting and sharing her Thermos of Bloody
Marys. When conversation eventually drifted to show business (as mine tend to), 10and behold,
I was speaking to the lady, Vesta Mahoney, who used to be Judy Garland's secretary in 1963.
After visiting her house, seeing her Hollywood memorabilia and listening to her stories, I kne«
this was a "hot" one. I made another trip to Texas City with my recorder and brought along
our editor/photographer, Blase DiStefano, for another enjoyable evening of Bloody Marys, Vesta
and stories. The following are some of them.

TWT JUNE 3 ' 9. J9831
TWT - How did you get involved in
Ms. Garland's life?
Vesta - I was working in Dallas with
a young lady I had known for years; her
mother was the governess for Judy's
two younger children, Joey and Lorna,
whom she had by Sid Luft. This girl was
working for me; I was personnel director at Blue Cross in Dallas. Anyway,
Frank Sinatra was doing a show in Las
Vegas and wanted Texas girls in the
show, so I made Corlynn enter and she
got the job, went to Vegas, and married
Michael Callen. He used to have a series on television. After she married
him, I went out to visit them, and her
mother asked me if I would consider
quitting my job and being Judy's secretary. I didn't know anything about
Hollywood or what it would be like to
be a secretary to a "star." I was 50 at
the time; I'm now 71. Her agents from
Hollywood and New York called me on
Tuesday and wanted to know if I could
be there on Friday. Well, at that time,
my husband and I had an argument that
lasted three years. I was in Dallas and
he was in the service at Ft. Hood, and
I had sold the house and was waiting
for the loan to come through. So I told
them I could be there by Friday if I
could come back Christmas-they called me in September-to finish up this
business. So I went.
How was Hollywood when you arrived?
When I got there, I went to Brentwood where she [Judy] lived; I had to
live with her. My understanding with her
agents was that I could have my own
apartment. She requested I live in the
house with her. I ended up living in her
pool house.
Did she more or less want you as a
Companion? I do not mean as a lover.
Yes, she was so lonely. She trusted
me very much because I was a country
girl, had no talent, and wasn't using her
TWT JUNE 3 ' 9. J983
INTERVIEW
as a stepping stone like everyone else
around her. I knew nothing of the politics of Hollywood. She was around 5'2"
or 3". I'm nearly 6 foot tall. When I first
met her, she shook hands with me and
said, "My, you're a tall girl." I stayed in
her house overnight before I met her the
next day. She asked, "What do you
mean killing our president?" She knew
I was from Dallas. She was a very close
friend of the Kennedy's. I told her I was
just as sorry as she was; I had seen him
five minutes before he was shot. I was
in the street watching his motorcade.

What were your duties for her?
I never did find out. She was making
her TV series at the time. I went to the
studio with her every day. Her agent
told me I was to "take care" of her, and
that's as far as they would go. I never
did any work. When her mail would
come in, I sent her fan mail to a fan
club, the bills were sent to her accountants, legal matter were sent to her
lawyers, and that's the "work" I did. I
would help her get ready to go to the
studio. She got up at noon and had to
be at the studio by two. Her hairdresser
usually picked us up. At the studio, my
duties were to guard the door and answer the phone. She stayed in a mobile
home in the studio. We usually left at
dark. She worked like a Trojan, and she
was so frail.
PAGE 43
Would you go home after you left the
studio?
No. She did what she wanted to do,
and I had to take her gowns and jewelry
home. That scared me. I had to take a
taxi back to the house every night.
How did you handle "crashers" at the
studio?
I had a stock answer: "Ms. Garland
is very busy right now." Mel Torme was
always there chewing his gum like a
rabbit. I don't like him.
Did you see what
around her?
was going
on
Almost immediately. She did have
some honest friends, however. Mickey
Rooney was very protective of her. He
gave me his private number and told me
to call him anytime, day or night, if she
needed hel p.
Did she realize what was happening
around her?
Oh, yes. I talked to her for nearly two
hours one night, and she told me how
her mother pushed her into all this. She
felt her mother used her for monetary
purposes.
Didn't her mother get her strung-out
on speed?
No, the studio did. That's what she
said. There will be others who say differently, but I believe the studio did it.
Mickey [Rooney] verified it. Mickey talkPAGE 44
ed to me at length and wanted to know
if I could get her out to play golf. She
belonged to a country club. I never was
able to.
Was she completely
controlled?
She was by people such as Mel
Torme on her music, her producer on
the show. This is the way things are
done in Hollywood. The stars don't do
what they want to do. I couldn't under,
stand it. My idea in Dallas was that the
stars told them what to do. There was
an awful lot of publicity about her leaving hotel bills in England; the White
Plaza in Dallas sued her for not paying
her bill. She didn't have anything to do
with paying her bills. She paid a battery
of accountants to pay her bills. What
did they do with that money?
What was her relationship
children, Joey and Lorna?
with her
She loved those kids. I remember
once Joey complained about having to
ride the bus to school, and she said,
"You forget you're Judy Garland's children; you get on that bus like everyone
else, go to school and make your
grades." She adored her family. tlza
[Minnelli] was at home then; she was 17.
She was adorable. She worshiped her
mother. Liza was going for an audition
in New York and came in one morning
and asked me to "read" with her. So,
TWT JUNE 3 • 9. 1983
when my turn came, I read it. She said,
"Can't you put something in that? I
can't get a clue from the way you're
reading it." I said, "Liza ... I'm not an
actress." She said, "You can put something into it!" When she started to
leave, she called me into the back bathroom and wanted to make sure I was
going to look after her mother. She was
very caring and concerned about her
mother. For Christmas, we all decorated the tree, and Judy decided she
I did was in her dressing room. She
wanted a certain makeup. It was a pancake thing. I lifted it up and it was full
of water that spilled on her satin dressing room stool. [Vesta laughed as she
told this.] "God-dammit, Vesta. Don't
you have any sense? What the hell are'
you doing?" I said, "I'm so sorry. I didn't
know it had water in it." She said, "It
doesn't matter; that thing needs to be
recovered anyway." That's the type of
person she was. She would apologize
wanted to play jacks on the floor in her
$180 white slacks that belonged to the
studio. Lorna, Liza, Judy and I played
jacks. She crawled all over that floor
and asked me the next morning, "What
happened to my knees?" The studio
told me, "Please don't let her crawl on
the floor in our clothes." This was a fantastic experience for me. She was a very
lovely gal. Everytime The Wizard of Oz
came on, it was a family affair. We
would all sit around the television and
watch it. Judy's face would light up; she
would clap her hands and say, "Look at
me, look at me!" She loved that movie.
Liza would sit there saying, "I can't
believe I'm watching this again!" Judy
never heard her say that, though.
immediately. She always did. She was
under constant pressure.
Did she always treat you well?
Don't think she talked nice to me all
the time. She did not. The first boo-boo
TWT JUNE 3 • 9. 1983
What did she usually do at night?
She had a date. She would go out.
The studio usually told her who to go
out with. There were some guys she
had to go out with that she really disliked. One escort she especially liked
was this gay guy who was really concerned and considerate of her. One day,
he brought some jewelry to the house
and told Ms. Garland it was for his wife.
After he left, she said, "Vesta, dahling,"
she never once said "Vesta," it was
always "Vesta, dahling." "Vesta, dahling, you know his wife is a man."
Did the studio try to manipulate you
along with her?
Yes, all the time. One day, she wasn't
feeling well, and I had locked the door
to her trailer. They didn't like this at all;
PAGE 45
it was costing them money. The phone
rang and it was the secretary to the producer. She said, "Don't tell Ms. Garland
who this is, but can't you do something
to get her out of there?" Judy was sitting two feet away, and I said, "Look,
when Ms. Garland feels well enough to
come out, she'll let you know." I didn't
get close to any of those people. My
loyalty was to Judy Garland, and to her
only.
Did you expect Liza Minnelli to be the
star she is today?
When I was there, Lorna was 10, Joey
was 8 and Liza was 17. I used to hear
Lorna singing around the house, and I
thought, "She's going to be the one."
Lorna was maybe a little jealous of Liza,
but she really loved her mother. Lorna
used to say to me-this
is age ten,
mind you-"Please
watch my mother;
the same thing might happen to her
that happened to Marilyn [Monroe). We
can't let that happen to Mommy." Obviously, Liza is more of a showman than
Lorna is, so she made it the biggest.
Liza's a trooper like her mother was.
Even when Judy's voice was gone, and
her voice would crack, it didn't matter.
She was Judy Garland. One morning,
she called me to her bedroom and said,
"Vesta, dahling, do you like me?" I said,
"Ms. Garland, I adore you." She said, "I
never have people say that to me and
really mean it." It might not have been
the truth; I don't know. She was a qood
actress. But I wasn't an actress, and
she knew it. I really do think she trusted
me. When she gave me her phone book
that had every movies star's number in
it imaginable, she said, "Now, you're
not going to copy this like my last
secretary did, are you?" It was hard for
her to trust people.
Who were some of the guests Judy
had on her show while you worked for
her?
Some of them were Ethel Merman]
Jack Jones; she didn't like Ethel. This
is what I'm talking about. The producers
told her who to have on the show. When
Ethel was on the show, Judy sent her
one red rose with no vase to her dressing room. Ms. Garland sent her choreographer an elaborate arrangement. I've
never heard two people try to outscream each other like that before. It
was hilarious.

Arriving in Sydney, Australia, 1964.
Did Judy ever try to keep her children
out of show business?
Not really, but she certainly didn't
push them into it. When Liza was leaving for New York, Judy said, "Vesta,
dahling, I have seen that girl off so
many times. Would you see her off
tonight?" I told Liza what I was going
to do, and she said, "Oh, Vesta, my
boyfriend's taking me; you can't go with
me." I said, "Okay. You had better not
ever let Judy know I didn't go with you."
Well, Judy had a date and was leaving
earlier. She left, and Liza had her bags
packed. Here's me and Liza starting out
the door to her limousine, when suddenly, Judy's limousine pulls up; she
had forgotten something. Liza was
backing up, pushing with those bags,
and we got back to her bedroom real
quick and hid. The next day, Ms.
Garland asked, "Did you get Liza to the
airport all right?" I said, "Everything
Wasjust fine. No problems." Ididn't like

Deans) wouldn't let her. She was hurt
deeply. Then Sid Luft had that auction
of Judy's things after she died. Liza
definitely didn't want that to happen.
She did not want her mother exploited.
Regardless of what you read, these people have feelings.
How did you leave your job with
Judy?
The reason I left-I was not fired; I
was not mad at her-her agents had not
told her my circumstances. I had the
house in Dallas. They told me they
would pay my way back. They said they
would pay my expenses to bring my car
back and get my own apartment in
HOllywood. They hadn't told her a thing.
This was typical of agents. She wouldn't
talk to me when I tried to bring up leaving. She would not discuss it. I couldn't
get to her. I had to leave. I could have
gone back, but I decided it was best not
to. I was due to go with her to Australia.
That was a fiasco. She couldn't appear
when she got there. She got sick. Her
sickness was .. you know what her
sickness was. I'm not going to say it.
She was a wonderful, wonderful person
who was a victim of circumstance.

(He strolls in fashionably late, laughing a little too loudly, and greets the interviewer with
several humorous barbs. He relaxes easily and gives an eager "Iet's-get-on-with-it" look. During the interview, he answers candidly and laughs often. He repeatedly runs one hand through
his longish, black hair. Each of his words seems to have a physical expression; not unlike
an interpreter for the deaf. His vocal inflections are as many. One soon gets the impression
that being the center of attention comes easily and is welcomed with open arms, mind and
heart.)

ROSEBUD TEA - At Rosebud, over
the weekend of May 13-15, the Texas
MC and The Silver Spurs of Dallas
jointly sponsored an enormously
successful first for Texas: Armadillo I, a
mixed motorcycle run for men and
women. "We had a hell of a good time,
and we're especially proud of the
ambiance that pervaded this great
weekend," Ted Johnston of the Texas
Motorcycle Club told HOT TEA. Men and
Women participated equally in the
biking, athletic and social events. The
run ended with an extraordinary feeling
of gay unity and strength among the 175
participants from 18 clubs across Texas,

Colorada and Missouri-as
well as the
many independents
who joined for the
fun. To those men and women who
hesitated to attend Armadillo

they feared the novel idea of a mixed

run, just ask anyone who

SPECIAL ..REPORT
This city's proposed Sexually Oriented Business (SOB)ordinance has been
labeled as dangerous by several owners
of area bookstores and other concerned citizens. "It is dangerous because
it gives political clout to the associations [Neartown and Avondale) that
have contested the licenses and renewals of every bar on lower Westheimer,"
Ray Hill told TWT.
These two associations are the centerpiece for bringing pressure on city
council to draft an SOB ordinance,
which was completed last week.
The draft represented seven months
of discussions by committee members,
research by committee staff, hearings
soliciting the views of interested citizens, and consultations with representatives of the City Legal Department.
Although the committee believes
that the draft represents a successful
attempt to regulate, not to prohibit,
there are those who feel the ordinance
is unacceptable and needs revision.
"The legal costs foisted upon adult
bookstores by the necessity to comply with or combat this ordinance may
indeed serve to prohibit, rather than
merely regulate, adult bookstores," one
owner stated.
Another owner told TWT that he
might as well turn the keys of his bookstore over to the vice squad adding, "at
very best, it places our fates in the
hands of zealots in the vice squad and
DA offices."
The ordinance calls for a director to
decide who gets a permit and who does
not. "Have you thought about the stupendous amount of power being placed
in the hands of this director? What if
she/he is somewhat susceptible to the
pressures of anti-pornography groups?
That would place the future of a businessperson's investment at the whim
TWT JUNE 3 . 9. 1983
.
of a single individual's waffling character," it was noted. The director could
become a "sex czar," one'told TWT.
The new draft, as anticipated by TWT,
requires that no two such businesses
be within less than 1,000 feet of each
other to prevent clustering. It also requires that no SOB be within the narrower range of 750 feet from a church
or school.
Regarding the distance between businesses proposed in the ordinance,
legal confl ict arises over the fact that
Houston has no zoning laws. "Zoning
under any other name is still egregious
in Houston," a complainant stated.
The draft also establishes a mechanism to forbid location of SOBs in predominantly residential areas, and requires all to be painted on the outside
in an achromatic color.
Signage is also addressed. A primary
sign cannot contain any flashing lights,
must be rectangular, not to exceed 75
square feet in area, and not exceed ten
feet in height.
All signs will be able to contain only
one of the following phrases: Adult
Book Store, Adult Motion Picture Theatre, Adult Encounter Parlor, Adult
Cabaret, Adult Novelties, and Adult
Entertainment.
SOBs would be permitted only one
secondary sign, which would have to
be affixed or attached to any wall or
door of the enterprise.
The proposed new ordinance proposes that all SOBs come into conformity within six months after the date
of its passage.
TWT has learned that several area
bookstores have joined forces to work
dilligently and noisily to see that every
judicial remedy is explored to throw the
SOB ordinance out if it cannot be
amended significantly.
