Transcript Congress, urging representatives to vote for the extension. Two field organizers came to Texas to familiarize local N.O.W. members with the telephoning campaign that had proven so effective in their areas. They were Eleanor Self, of Louisville, Ky., and Joan Denman, Alabama State Coordinator. They assisted N.O.W. chapters in Houston, Corpus Christi, Dallas and Fort Worth. With considerable assistance from Ms. Self, Frances Hicks of Bay Area N.O.W. coordinated the campaign for Houston and the surrounding area. During the second week of August, they gathered some 45 volunteers from various organizations, including N.O.W., L.W.V., W.E.A.L., A.A.U.W. , A.C.L.U., Women's Political Caucus, Unitarian Church Women, teenagers and other unaffiliated women and men. Local business offices donated space and telephone lines while volunteers phoned thousands of area residents and asked their permission to send mail to Congress in their names. The effort targeted U.S. Representatives Bob Eckhardt and Bob Gammage because they were reportedly wavering in support of H.J. Res. 638. In all, 1080 letters, 2428 post cards, and 266 public opinion messages were generated to the two representatives. Rep. Gammage voted for extension and against rescission while Rep. Eckhardt voted for rescission and against extension. (continued on p. 2 )
