When the man refused, he was struck over the head with the gun and forced to the floor. Roque said the suspect took the man’s wallet and fled out the back door. Wednesday night’s armed robbery occurred in the 700 block of McKinley Street. The victim, who received a laceration on the top of his head, described the suspect as a thin, white male in his early 20s with blue eyes.

DALLAS (AP) — The man who has been fighting Texas’ sodomy law for six years lost another round Wednesday, but he said the next battle will be before the U.S. Supreme Court. Donald F. Baker said -he didn’t expect the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans to reconsider its earlier ruling upholding the sodomy law, and the justices didn’t surprise him. “The appeal put forth in the petition, however sincere and deserving of response, is directed to the wrong audience,” the court said. “It is not the role or authority of this federal court to decide the morality of sexual conduct for the people of the state of Texas.” Baker said the 5th Circuit appeal was a matter of routine and intended more to prevent later procedural tangles than to kill the law that forbids sexual intercourse among homosexuals. “We wanted to follow all legal avenues,” he said. “Having done that, we’re on our way. We have planned since Aug. 26 to go to the U.S. Supreme Court.” The appeals court ruled in August that the state did have authority to pass such a sodomy law. The complex opinion, signed by nine of the 16 judges on the court, referred to the “strong objection to homosexual conduct which has prevailed in western culture for the past seven centuries.” Opponents claim the law makes criminals of the 700,000 lesbians and gay men in Texas, and Baker said Wednesday that “we started in 1979 to get this law ruled unconstitutional, and we will continue that fight.” Businessmen have interest in space WASHINGTON (AP) - Texas needs to quit relying on the business of drilling beneath the earth and develop industry aimed at the heavens, a group of entrepreneurs told Texas congressmen at a Capitol Hill meeting. Rep. Mike Andrews, D-Houston, hosted the Wednesday breakfast for members of the congressional delegation and representatives of private space ventures, many of which are based in Texas. Andrews said the House is set to consider ways to back insurance for companies operating in outer space — space insurance is expensive and hard to get — and tax incentives for production of goods in outer space. But he told the space bus messmen they should not expect to rely on National Aeronautics and Space Administration grants and joint ventures because of inevitable budget reductions. “I think there’s no question that people are willing to make the kind of budget cuts that are necessary on the NASA budget,” said Andrews. “The real question is how visionary can we be in some of the other incentives to help commercialization. That will affect what some of these companies are able to do much more than the NASA budget for ’86 or ’87 or even till the end of the decade.” Robert Pace of Microgravity Research Associates of Houston said his company wants to go into space to grow special crystals, "sort of like silicon,” for use in electronics. The crystals will not grow correctly on Earth because of gravity. A joint public-private push is “absolutely essential to get this industry off the ground,” said Robert New, a Texas Commerce Bank executive representing the Houston Economic Development Council. Houston businessman Jack Rains, representing the city’s Chamber of Commerce, said “reports of our (economic) death are greatly exaggerated.” But, he said, the oil, gas and petrochemical industries do not promise new jobs. Space commercialization is one of the most promising industries for the area, he said. “We don’t look for government subsidies, we look for government creating the environment so the private sector can work, because government truly controls the environment in space commercialization,” Rains said. “Government policy will dictate the type of opportunities that these fledgling companies will have. What we want to do is make sure that environment remains nourishing as opposed to hostile.” “We want you to know we’re there, that we can support this space commercialization and we’re dedicated to do it,” said David Hannah of Space Services of America, a private launch enterprise based in Houston. ★AIDS. Continued from Page LA children are AIDS youngsters who have a tendency to bite, Haggerty said. Snuth, who appeared at a news conference with Haggerty, said about 75 percent of AIDS and related diseases in children is the result of transmission to unborn infants from the mother. Another 19 percent, he said, is due to blood or blood-product tran smission. “Confidentiality is an extremely important issue,” Smith said. "It is essential that persons involved in the care and education of an infected student respect the student's right to privacy.” He recommended that the number of personnel aware of a child’s condition be kept to a minimum. Since new information is surfacing every day on AIDS, Haggerty said the academy plans to update its position on the issue from time to time. The AAP also reconunended: — If a child with AIDS is a health risk to others, he should be removed from school but receive an identical education. — All schools should adopt routine procedures for handling blood and body fluids, including sanitary napkins, regardless of whether students with full-blown AIDS are known to be enrolled. — Children infected with AIDS are at greater risk of suffering complications from infections and should be exempt from mandatory live virus vaccines. — Mandatory screening for AIDS and AIDS-related diseases of all children should not be undertaken because it is not cost effective.

FIRST BAPTIST CUP HCH 733 Cross St. New Braunfels .Texas 78130 The appeals court said in its latest ruling that although it is “sensitive and sympathetic” to some of Baker’s complaints, “It is simply not the business of this court to act upon them.” It added that “we suggest that the proper understanding of our constitutional authority is even more important to the republic than is this particular moral issue.” The case has been tied up in court since 1979, when Baker, of Dallas, said in a lawsuit that the sodomy law threatened his job. Complicating the issue was the decision by state Attorney General Jim Mattox to drop his appeals after a federal judge struck the law down in 1982. Potter County District Attorney Danny Hill of Amarillo took up the fight for the state, raising questions about his authority to jump in where the attorney general refused. During the long court fight, the case also took on other implications as both proponents and opponents connected it to the AIDS issue. Baker said the law would threaten efforts to combat the killer disease by driving homosexuals under cover. Hill and others said the law was needed to control acquired immune deficiency syndrome. But neither the appeals court’s ruling Aug. 26 nor the one Wednesday touched on the question of AIDS.

I s / attracting a little less interest, while the secondary issues that have lagged behind the Dow were doing a little bit better Some observers view these changes as healthy. But they also say more evidence of an improving economy and progress on such problems as the federal budget deficit is probably necessary for the market to move ahead with any great force.
