Transcript To and from Services for Women—\t our new women's center (see story, page 12) we'd like to have a directory of services and information for women, in such areas as child care, legal services, health care, abortion agencies, welfare rights, legislation, and so on. Any ideas? Suggestions for areas to include? Names of agencies which help women? We would appreciate your input. Send ideas to Breakthrough. Wanted—Advice for Medicare Folks Can anyone come up with a service that will answer questions for Medicare clients? Most of the literature distributed by the local Social Security office is inadequate and not tailored to specific individual problems. Send ideas to Breakthrough. Feminist Library—Lilith, Womans place will have a library and needs books, periodicals and everything else a library needs. Rather than give gifts individually to my friends this holiday season, I subscribed to periodicals and bought books for our new Feminist Library. Until the new center opens they will be housed with Breakthrough. To avoid duplication when giving your contributions, call Sue Wittie at 524-9500 to ask for titles of existing collection. Space for Rent—We've got a building in the Town and Country vicinity suitable for a manufacturer's representative, a wholesaler, small business, storage or a studio. Call 464-5772. A "Democratic Party Participation Workshop" designed primarily for women, minorities and older persons—groups traditionally under-represented at the polls and in the party structure—will take place on Saturday, January 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the University of Houston Student Center (check information desk for exact room). Four separate workshops are planned: voter registration and the new voter registration law; precinct organization; conventions and the delegate system; and the Presidential primary. The same workshop is planned for North County residents that day. A meeting place has not been selected. For more information call County Coordinator Barbara Stanley at 729-1793. Feminist Study Group forming, to read and discuss feminist nonfiction. Call Lynne Mutchler for time and place of first meeting. 667-6932. Child Care at Rice—Rice University provides no child-care facilities for its faculty, staff or students. The Child Care Task Force of the West University Chapter of NOW is interested in establishing an on-campus childcare center to serve the needs of the Rice community. If you are in any way associated with the University and would like to help us get started, please call Debby Apple at 665-0823. The United Farm Workers are planning a march in late January to take their boycott to Galveston. Anyone interested in joining the March on Galveston should call 237-0173. University of Houston Sponsors Women's Programs—Starting in late January, the University of Houston will conduct forums on women's issues. Tuesdays from 12 noon till 1 p.m. in the large dining room in the Satellite. The noon forum will be planned by both the Women's Affairs Director and the Women's Advocate. Evelyn Reed at the UH—Forum Committee of the Program Council is bringing Reed, the author of Women's Evolution to the campus, February 4, UH Houston Room, 8 p.m. Wanted: Feminist Speakers— Breakthrough is anticipating a Speakers Bureau.
