Woman
sailor:
Base full
of gays
VALLEJO, Calif. (UPI) - A female
sailor says half the 250 men and women
sailors at the Skaggs Island intelligence
'and communications base are bisexual
and use drugs.
The controversy rocking the
classified base near San Francisco -
kept closed to reporters yesterday - is
the latest in a series of sex scandals
creating rough seas for the Navy in
California.
THE- PROBLEMS at Skaggs arose
from an investigation into the sexual
activities of Seaman Carole Schultz, 22,
of Rochester, N.Y., her roommate,
Karen Bender, 20, and Tina Queen, 20.
All three are being given honorable
discharges.
"They're processing the discharges
now and as far as the command is con-
cerned, the matter is closed," a base
spokeswoman said yesterday.
Schultz, a galley worker, said she was
reported to base authorities when a
male sailor came to her room last mon-
th and foundher naked in bedswith
another female sailor. The-male sailor
had come to the room to hunt for a
wallet he lost during a party the night
before, she said.
"I WOULD rather he jumped in bed
with us," she said later. "Three's better
than two."
Schultz claimed her bisexual ac-
tivities are not unusual.
"I'm not kidding," she said.
"If I had to sit down and mark off
people who smoke dope on the base and
are gay - that includes lots of men, too
- you wouldn't have a base. You
wouldn't have a Navy."

AN UNIDENTIFIED MAN is arrested during a disturbance in the predominantly black Orlando neighborhood of Para-
more Avenue early yesterday. Five businesses were burned and 46 people arrested during the night of racial violence
caused by hit-and-run gangs of youths.
CAR CONTAINING TWO TOP LA WMEN A TTACK ED:
rlando V1olence erupts

From UPI and AP
ORLANDO, Fla. - Marauders
attacked a car containing Orlando's
two top lawmen last night, beginning a
third night of violence in the
predominantly black sodthwest section
of the city.
Once again, police cordoned off the
area and gangs of youths began hurling
rocks and bottles.
ORANGE COUNTY Sheriff Melvin
Coleman was cut by flying glass in the
rock-throwing attack on an unmarked

car in which he was touring the area
with Public Safety Director Howard
McClain.
Coleman was cut on the left cheek
and, although shaken, indicated the cut
was not serious.
"See what you get for trying to play
hero?" he told reporters at the
Municipal Justice Building about two
blocks from the perimeter of the 20-
block area where the violence has been
centered.
COLEMAN WAS SITTING in the
back seat of the car when a side window

was smashed out. The right side of the
windshield was also cracked by the
flying debris.
"They'started calling us honkies and
we got out of there fast," McClain said.
Five businesses were burned and 46
people arrested in Wednesday night's
violence along Parramore Avenue. No
one was seriously injured and Police Lt.
Pete Hutcheon said that "compared to
the size. of the area involved, the
damage was relatively minor."
TWO OF THE five businesses that
were set afire-a grocery and a
television shop-were gutted.
Hutcheon said Police Chief James
Nursey did not want to impose a curfew
in the troubled area near Interstate 4,
which daily carries thousands of
tourists to Walt Disney World and other
area attractions west of the central
Florida city.
The violence has been blamed on
what police called "hit-and-run" gangs
of black youths and Hutcheon said,
"It's highly unlikely they would obey a
curfew."
THIS CENTRAL FLORIDA city's
first major racial disturbance in
memory was triggered by a barroom
arrest early Wednesday morning.
About 100 to 150 black youths returned
to the streets late Wednesday night, this
time with Molotov cocktails as well as
rocks and bottles.
