Prostitutes to hold
first nat'!. convention

UNCLE KARL
WANTS YU

SAN FRANCISCO (P) - Pro-
stitutes plan to hold their first
national convention here June
26 to discuss the alleged sex
discrimination against their
profession.
Margo St. James, who started
a crusade a year ago to de-
criminalize prostitution, has re-
cruited female lawyers and so-.
cial scientists to attend the
meeting.
ST. JAMES, 36, is also the
founder of Coyote, described by
her as a "loose women's organi-
zation," and named for the
crafty denizen of the wild.
It has no formal membership
rolls. But St. James estimates
it includes at least 100 working
prostitutes in San Francisco as
well as members in other cities
and supporters from varied
walks of life who wear the but-
ton with a grinning coyote.
Delegates to the prostitutes'
convention will focus on what
St. James calls "the most blat-
antly sexist and racist discrimi-
nation in American society.
"A PROSTITUTE'S business
is not unpleasant. I've ssorked*
at it, and I know," she said.
"Most customers are more
gentlemanly and polite with a
hooker than they are with their
wives. The abuse and the de-
gradation come at the hands of

the police and the courts."
One delegate is Dr. Jennifer
James, a University of Wash-
ington anthropologist who re-
cently completed a four-year,
state - funded study of police
and court treatment of prasti-
tutes in Seattle.
Dr. James advocates society
recognize the right to sexual
privacy and repeal laws apply-
ing to sexual conduct between
consenting adults.
ANOTHER speaker will be
Carol Silver, legal counsel to
San Francisco Sheriff Richard
Hongisto.
"Margo really has stimulated
progress toward public accept-
ance of an idea whose time has
come - the decriminalizing of
prostitution," said Silver. "It's
no longer a smutty joke to be
laughed at. It's time to get out-
moded laws off the books."
St. James claimed progress
on ending discrimnation has
been slow.
In San Francisco, American
Civil Liberties Union attorney
Deborah Ilenkle won a court
injunction in February to end
compulsory venereal disease
testing for women arrested for
prostitution. The effect of the
regulation was to deny bail foi
the three da, s required for test
results.,
Leading the

Shootout, High Stakes Poker

players have recently found
similar diversions to satisfy
their voracious appetites.
At most alleys, wizards alsio
cluster around the Foosball aind
air hockey tables, totally
emerced in, these high-speed
cousins of pinball.
They also have become mes-
merized by sophisticated video
games like computerized ping
pong. But to them it's all the
same really-man against ma
