a stranger mouthto mouth resuscitation after he collapsed on a Chicago sidewalk and appeared to be When the citys paramedics they look ed at the mans arm and discoved that he was a mainlining as it turned he was not only a but a gay And not only a gay but one with bleeding the woman was alarmed at the possibility that she might have been exposed to So she tried to persuade the where the man was treated for a to give her including his The hospital saying the law prevented it from giving out any information on the So she turned to the citys Health Department for She told her story in detail to a depart ment employee who then asked Did you have sex with him And that was were we left the story of the good Since there have been other My social life has taken a nose says who is Theres been someone in my 1 showed him the article and obviously hes rather hesi We havent broken but 1 havent seen him very much in the last couple of My dentist read the article and now he wears a mask when he works on my Friends who used to shake my hand no longer 1 dont know if 1 can describe but my friends seem different Its just a feeling I a gut Theyre concerned about my but theyre also concerned about their But with all the misinformation going around about Im not The impression I get from people they look at me with and the look on their faces says Why did you do such a stupid thing Its as if 1 could have somehow known that he was an Or a promiscuous Some of the neighbors have told me about Diane lives on the North in the heart of the gay as it is The hospital where the man was treated still hasnt done much for although it has Theyve tried to get him to come in for a Theyve been in contact with his and she thinks it would be a good But hes Whats really infuriated me is that the hospital told me that hed like to talk to me and they asked me if they could give him my phone When they asked me I was furious I told them You wont tell me who he but you want to give him my name and phone number Do you think 1 want some junkie calling me at two oclock in the morning telling me hes sorry Theyve offered to give me free blood tests and monitor me every three But Im not going to go there or the tests because they might have some legal interests in the Im going to get the but somewhere A spokesman for the hospital concedes that the hospital is in kind of a bind Weve been trying to get him to come in to be but we havent been successful Weve also tried to get him to agree to let her have his phone but we havent been able to ask Hes hard to get in touch so weve had to deal with his and he doesnt live with his mother Working on her Diane has discovered the mans name When the paramedics treated they took down that in formation and it is a matter of public record But that hasnt helped Diane track him down as the hospital spokesman the man seems to be constantly on the A busy 1 assume So Diane is going to go ahead and take the series of tests Theres no great urgency As a state health official said Its not like she can go in and take a shot and change anything In other if shes got shes and thats that The state official also said Ive talked to our medical experts and they said that her chances of getting AIDS Is extremely slim after I wrote the first column about Dianes 1 heard from an organua tlon that promotes educating the public on how to give cardlopulmonary resuscitation The organization said that I may have been ir responsible In writing the because I might discourage others from giving mouthto mouth aid to They might have a so 1 want to make It clear

Country Music Awards last night and was pleased to see that Dan Seals was not only a presenter but one of the He didnt but a whole lot of talented people went home empty handed The Capitol Records recording star was the headliner at the 18th Annual Chilipiad in San Marcos this year and I had the pleasure of inter viewing Dan Seals before the We talked just after his sound check and then he wore khaki pants a dark blue teeshirt and a gimme just one of the He was gracious as we sat in a country stars home away from the tour We werent alone He travels with his four man his sound man and his Dans made a big name for himself with a career that spans over thwenty Fans will remember that he was Dan of England Dan and John Ford the popular duo that went their separate ways in 1979 to pursue different career Coley was into rock and roll and Seals wanted to remain true to bis country And that he however his music has an edge to reminiscent of rhythm and blues at His style is sincere and

jazzy sax play Seals remained smiling and not the least upset when his performance was delayed because of the Chilipiad Queen contest that seemed to drag on The Country Music Awards brought out a different however and he looked ner almost like a kid waiting in speech class knowing any minute hes going to be called up in front of his At I was going to watch the show from a but as soon as Seals

like a couple of aging groupies and our conversation went something like this He talked to you before the Martha Go ask him If we can buy him dinner after the I cant do Its come on This might be our only Our chance at what was never quite determin The matter was resolved when we stood talk ing too long to do anything about I remembered the eons when my teenage cohorts and 1 went to see then heart throb Tommy Sands perform and wangled our way backstage to take a photo for the school After the all we did was look at him and none of us had an Intelligent thing to I realized then that what might
