The Homosexual In Our Society: The program is composed of two parts. The first one deals chiefly with the problems faced by the individual who is homosexual; the second part attempts to deal with the role society should play in relation to such individuals. The speakers in the first discussion are Harold Call, editor of the Mattachine Review; Mrs. Leah Gailey, housewife; and Dr. Blanche Baker, psychiatrist. Speakers in the second discussion are Dr. Karl Bowman, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, U.C., and former Head of the Langley Porter Clinic; Dr. Frank A. Beach, Jr., Professor of Psychology, U.C.; Morris Lowenthal, San Francisco attorney; and Dr. David H. Wilson, Dept. of Criminology, U.C. Both discussions are moderated by Elsa Knight Thompson. This program, which attempts to deal constructively with an especially difficult social problem, should be listened to in its entirety.
