‘Whorehouse’ success

HOUSTON — The closing Sun
day of “The Best Little Whorehouse
in Texas, ” after a year-long, $5 mil
lion run, will be mourned perhaps by
an even larger audience than

tion, the legendary La Grange
brothel known as the Chicken
It is doubtful the original sex par
lor attracted more paying customers
in its colorful history than its musical
comedy namesake.
What Texans and the rest of the
nation have come to realize via the
New York, Houston and national
touring productions of the play is
that even in its forced closing, the
Chicken Ranch lives. Likewise, the
Tower Theater production of
“Whorehouse survives to play
another day as a second touring com

from Florida to Nevada.
The Texas production is a success
story paralleled only by the con
tinued demand for tickets to the ori
ginal version of “Whorehouse” at the
46th Street Theatre on Broadway.
Hardly anyone thought legitimate
theater could stage a 12-month pro
duction in Houston and attract more
than 380,000 customers. Today,
hardly anyone doubts “Whore

NEW YORK — It was just a
friendly message to the neighbors,
said the firefighters. But the higher-
ups were not amused, and Engine
Company 39 had to take down its
hockey sign Saturday.
The firehouse night crew was so
inspired by the U.S. Olympic hock
ey team’s victory over the Soviet
squad Friday night that they grab
bed a bedsheet and red paint, and
created a sign announcing: “U.S. 4,

“They are our neighbors,” said a
fireman who refused to give his
name. “It just seemed like a good
idea to acknowledge the fact that we
won. ”
The people directly across the
street had no comment.
“This morning there was a boss
around. He thought before there was
any controversy we should take it
down,’ the fireman-turned-
signpainter said.
Jan. 1, 1980, PCBs have to be des
troyed by incineration at extremely
high temperatures instead of simply
being trucked to specially monitored
landfills the EPA earlier approved.
EPA officials figured the seven-
month interval between the regula
tion’s issuance and the anti-dumping
clause would provide plenty of time
for private industry to develop PCB
incineration programs approved by
environmental officials.
It didn’t. There are no commercial
waste disposal plants in the country
authorized to burn PCBs, a compo
nent of oils and lubricants produced
in the 1940s and 1950s.
Energy Systems Co., a waste dis
posal firm in El Dorado, Ark., is the
closest to receiving EPA authoriza

Siamese twins stable

United Press International
HOUSTON — No new medical
problems arose for critically ill tiny
Siamese twins Ivette and Ivonne
Morales during the weekend, mak

said Sunday.
“Surgery is becoming more of a
possibility,” said Texas Children’s
Hospital administrator Pat Kiley.
“There’s been nothing we’ve seen
that has been a problem.”
Kiley said the condition of the 21-
day-old twins, who are joined at the
chest, had not changed.
