About 70 men — most of them out-of downers — have been collared the past three weeks by a Dallas policewom-an posing in bars and clubs as a prostitute However, she says she does not entice the men and that there is no arrest unless the man offers her money and they leave the bar "Wasn’t Looking" “I wasn’t even looking for a girl," the student said. "I saw this girl alone Well, this is a bad neighborhood to Im‘ walking around iii at night so I stopped. "I asked her what she was doing and she said. ‘Nothing.’ So I asked if she’d like to go lo a movie. She said. ‘No.’ Then I asked if she wanted to go to a club or go riding around "She said she couldn't pay her rent if she went riding around and then I realized she was a prostitute." The student said he "didn t want to say anything outright, because I had heard about officers posing as prostitutes arid I didn t intend to offer her money and get caught." ‘Good \ctress’ She was a good actress though She just smiled and played along She was real noficommital but told me not to worry Anyway, she convinced me she wasn’t a police officer so I finally said tail."

Several Dallas lawyers say there is a fine line between legal police activity and unlaw ful entrapment She s set out for the pur-poso of enticing customers one lawyer said “To talk in innuendos until the guy offers money is absolute entrapment '# MMM Book Causes Controversy With Record Companies By Sandra Gittons NEW YORK (AP) - "lf I could do it all over, I d do it all over again." laughed Elaine Jesmer, as she began to explain the controversy and reason behind her first novel, “Number One with a Bullet" Ari energetic, slim woman of .14, who said she’d just been to about 20 odd cities in a matter of days. Miss .learner bounced on her New York hotel bed. smiled and said. "Well. w hat do you want to know?" What’s the "hang up” behind the book’’ It s a fictional piece of writing in which she says she just wanted to tell a story. Ifs centered around a record company that's owned by a black family — ifs also filled with sex. violence, and systematic exploitation of major artists. PR Work For openers, Miss Jesmer says she’s only worked for one record company eight months — Ray Charles Records on the Tangerine label. ‘‘Normally I worked clubs, doing public relations work. In connection with the clubs I would be handling the acts that appeared I kind of got into handling more acts than clubs because the road managers of several acts liked the job I’d done and wanted a service more directed to their client.” So I ended up handling Marvin Gaye, Tammy Terrell, Martha and the Vandellas, the Four Tops and the Fifth Dimension — mostly for engagements they did in the Los Angeles area.” Pointing out the obvious, that she somehow always worked with black artists, she explained that it was because the clubs she worked for were black-oriented. Suppression Attempt Miss Jesmer says there was a definite attempt to suppress the novel. Last October she says she started receiving letters asking to see the manuscript. Her publisher refused. She says there was an obvious attempt to suppress it by a record company. "And there was no reason,’’ she says. "My publisher told them it was a novel, but the letters got saltier and saltier. Then, last month, my publisher Teenagers Burn Flag, Ordered To Apologize KAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (UPI)—Two teenaged girls in this Ohio river community of 211.(MMI apologized in a newspaper advertisement Thursday for burning an American flag on a street here earlier this month. The girls, Vicki Sue Noland. 15, and Frances Mia Curran, Hi, were ordered to place the advertisement in the Fast Liverpool Review by a Columbiana county juvenile court judge. The ad entitled "An Apology" read: “We have given serious thought to violation of state law and wrongful personal conduct iii regard to our nation. committed when we burned an American flag July I on Fifth street “In recognition of our own change of attitude and in compliance with the order by juvenile court, we publicly apologize and declare we love our country."-Juvenile Court Judge Guy Mauro also ordered the girls to attend the raising and lowering of the American flag at city hall until school starts this fall, observe a curfew for the next six months and not to communicate with each other by telephone, letter or in person for the next year He said he took the action to "impress upon the girls and minors generally thai the | American flag is something to lie respected and not spit upon.” got a letter saying that they were going to consult their lawyers "They had never read the hook, all lins time they were asking for the book, so they had never even seen it It was afl on rumor The same day the letter came, they had a lawyer call my publisher and ask for the manuscript, lh* told him hi* could buy it in the store.” Next came a letter from the justice department. They wanted to know if sin* would be interested in contacting them about “anything .” “So I had my lawyer call and tell them that it's fictional, and I don’t have any facts I have nothing that would substantiate a legal case for them Payola Incident In 1973, the justice department began investigating reported use of drugs and payola by record companies interested in promoting their own artists. Although no indictments have been returned, grand juries in several states have heard evidence about several alleged payola incidents, She says what’s being done in her is the same thing that happened to the main character in the book — the control of output She doesn’t believe anyone bas that right. “If I really had to sum up the hook, I would say that nobody, no corporation, has the right to tell an artist what to do, no matter how bizarre his product might be. No matter what they think of it in terms of what’s current, because art should he free " Movie Rights    • Movie rights of the hook wert* sold to Al Ruddy, who also did the “Godfather’ . Ronnie Elder was hired to write the screen play and Paramount was to finance the movie. Elaine says she got the same deal as Mario Puzo. Later she heard that tilt* movie deal had fallen through. "And that freaked me out!" she says. "It seems to me that the resentment is due to the hearings, the justice department, aud the lawyers. Everybody in the business is very jumpy about it. But it s also, I think, the fact that I am a white woman. Not just white, but also a woman I think that really has an effect.” Bridge WEST SIDE I Ll ll Winners in a Howell movement game played Thursday at Welly-Way were Mrs W E Lyman and Mrs K. E.
