Mimosa Room of the Continental Motor Hotel. Grace Oliveras, attorney and director of Food For All Of Arizona, will be the principal speaker. The Conference is open to the public(by reservation). Members of Houston NOW knew whose birthday was really on February 15. They not only remembered the 151st anniversary of Susan B. Anthony's birth. They ate birthday cake in celebration. A large birthday cake reading "Happy Birthday, Susan" was served to the members of the Houston Independent School District textbook selection committee and citizens attending the hearings. Earlier, Helen Cassidy, on behalf of Houston NOW, told the textbook committee, "Almost without exception, proposed textbooks for the Houston Independent School District ignore or give only passing notice to women." Criticizing a junior high textbook Ms. Cassidy said, "A Global History of Man is aptly titled... The book devotes ten sentences to four women. Yet 111 different men are listed in the index including the universally known Jan Coen." The textbooks, she argued, "too often provide instruction in sexually-ascribed social roles. The vocational-technical education books are, without exception, geared to boys as the home economics books are written for girls." She praised one textbook. "Introduction to Homemaking by Cross talks of shared responsibility in the home between men and women. It speaks of house husbands and, in what is obviously radical terms for such a text, suggests women should think of a career since their children will indeed be grown before their life is half over." Ms. Cassidy urged the committee to remember textbooks are for all students. "The time when any segment of society can be ignored or downgraded is long past. The time to free all people from role stereotyping and limited potential is NOW." ————^———— If you have questions about the Houston Area NOW Chapter or any as- pect of women' s rights call one of the following numbers: A.M.
