Transcript Letters (continued from page 2). macho myth, the super-male. Others might see someone who believes what they are doing to be right, who keeps on with the struggle to reach that goal. Someone else might see the activist, willing to shake up an organization that is so overwhelmed in getting the form correct that it forgets the purpose it serves (Wayne might kill a lot of people in battle, but could you hear him try and pass it off with that disclaimer of responsibility, "I was only following orders?") Marion (Michael) Morrison stood for many things I don't accept. But he did stand for them; and paid the price when he was both right and wrong. So while I can't honor what he stood up for, in every case, I can honor the fact that he stood up, and took both the good and the bad. He didn't sit back in his film lot, but talked out for what he believed in. Robert K. Roulston, Jr. "Looking forward to more." Just a note to tell you how much I enjoyed the issue of Breakthrough I picked up at the Galleria! I just moved here from Arkansas, there the feminist paper is called OURS and has just started. It is small, but well put together. Am sending a copy of Breakthrough to a friend in Little Rock. I'm sure she will enjoy it! I'm looking forward to more interesting issues! Especially read with interest the stress article ("Houston Women Talk About Stress," April 1979). Fran Alsbrook 'Thank you, Nikki, for giving the age-beauty issue space." This is a "fan letter" (to Nikki Van Hightower) from a near-fifty yr. old woman! Thanks so much for helping me think through your column ("On Turning 40, July/ August 1979). Thanks for giving the age-beauty issue space. . . Conditioned as we are-we all face the same realities but usually without real thought. It was a great help. I always read your column first and think the whole paper is wonderful! So glad we still have it. I miss you on radio KTRH—even though it was my husband who listened to you. Your objective approach was so influential and helpful to me indirectly. Thanks! Joyce Terry "All kinds of doors have opened for me." A couple of months ago I started working in the Public Relations Department at the Houston Convention Council and one of my jobs is editing and writing the enclosed newsletter. As you may remember, my degree was in nursing and I never could have gotten this kind of job without being able to show published work as a writer. Because of the start I had with Breakthrough, all kinds of doors have opened for me. I wanted you to 'know that and I wanted to thank you for the help and encouragement you gave me. Beverly Hebert United Way (continued from page 13) can social fabric," he says in a New York Times story. To this end, a national conference entitled Fundraising in the Workplace- Exploring Alternatives to United Way was held this past spring to coincide with the United Way's annual conference. NCRP sponsored the meeting along with more than 40 other organizations ranging from the Gray Panthers to Zero Population Growth. Conference participants arrived at six recommendations for local committees concerning responsive philanthropy. 1) Make payroll deduction contributions available to all individual charities. 2) Repeal United Way policies which foster a monopoly in workplace solicitation. 3) Organize alternative fundraising federations at the local level to include a wide variety of organizations. 4) When access is denied to legitimate, deserving organizations, boycott the United Way fundraising campaigns. 5) Establish programs by employers for matching of employee gifts for the benefit of all non-profit, tax-exempt organizations which can receive tax deductible gifts. 6) Organize local coalitions for philanthropic change by groups which receive little support from United Ways or other traditional funding institutions. These committees should study the patterns of local philanthropy; evaluate how well local philanthropic funding meets critical needs of the area; report on these matters to local leaders and to the public, and report periodically to the public on the overall progress or lack of progress of philanthropy in responding to the issues raised in the above studies. "Responsive Philanthropy officials feel that donations could become a source of support for groups addressing emerging social problems, for individuals with new ideas, for alternative approaches to problems still too new or untested to receive government funding, and for supporting community organizations that have active citizen involvement," writes Karen De- Witt in her Times story. The NCRP recommendations represent the first step toward restructuring organized fundraising in the workplace. The Black United Fund is an alternative for Houston which may spur further change locally. As Bothwell stresses, however, United Ways themselves and the business community can do the most to promote the diversity that makes "private giving beautiful." Christine LeLaurin is a recent graduate of the University of St. Thomas, where she studied journalism. The Ford Foundation has just released the first comprehensive study of private foundation and government funding of women 's programs. The NCRP has prepared a summary of the Ford study and it is available for $.88 from NCRP, 810-18th Street, N. W., Suite 408, Washington, D.
