Rep. Richard VanderVeen, the

elected in President Ford's dis-

Fellatio is also covered in the
new rape law in the category of
sexual penetration.
THERE IS also a law cov-
ering seduction. Any man who
"seduces and debauches an un-
married female" can find them-
selves in jail for five years.
The courts have ruled that an
"unchaste female cannot be the

There is no law for seducing

ONE LAW, which can be
traced back to 1897, makes it a
crime to "use indecent, im-
moral, obscene, vulgar or in-
sulting language in the presence
or hearing of any woman or
child." This, in effect, makes
it a crime for a woman to
swear to herself.

THE LIST of sex laws goes
on and on, covering-gross in
decency by males, females and
between males and females.
While the meaning of "gross in-
decency" is not defined in the
statutes, a person can spend
the rest of their life in jail "for
committing or being party to,"

committed in the privacy of the
Other laws make it crimes:
-for females over the age
of 15 to debauch males under
the age of 15;
-to accost, entice or solicit
a child for immoral purposes;
-to entice any female under
the age of 16 to marry.
Similar laws in California
were recently repealed, and
many acts between consenting
adults were legalized. The law
allows private acts of sodomy
and oral acts of intercourse be-

AS A RESULT of the Califor-
nia law, Bullard expects a new
bill dealing with cohabitation,
crimes against nature, and so-
licitation, to be introduced in
the House soon. But he expects

in the judiciary committee.
"The committee is currently
interested only in law and or-
