ARMfW MOTEL CHECK- IN ^ Welcome Viewpoint Those opponents of the National Women's Conference who try to label the whole 2,000-member delegation as "lesbians and abortionists" are betraying their own inability to read and grasp facts. Starting with first lady Rosalynn Carter and former first lady Betty Ford, the conference is drawing some of the most distinguished women in America. It is being attended by representatives of almost every national women's organization, from the Junior League to the Coalition of Labor Union Women, the Campfire Girls and Girl Scouts to the American Association of University Women, the YWCA to the National Council of Catholic Women, B'nai Brith, Right-to-Life and Stop ERA. It is true that not every state delegation was democratically chosen. Many Alabama and Mississippi women are protesting that because of right- wing takeover, their delegations do not represent the wide range of the women living in their states. Mississippi's delegation is all white, including five men, in a selection reportedly influenced by the Ku Klux Klan. But larger states like New York, Pennsylvania, California and Texas made a special effort to select delegates from a deep cross section of the people. The delegates are diverse in income, race, religion, age and work. Home- makers, farmers, college students, waitresses, city councilwomen, scientists, migrant workers, teachers and doctors. Some 130,000 American women attended the state conventions to elect the delegations coming to Houston this week. Many critics will try to laugh off this serious effort by American women to seek personal, marital, economic and professional justice under the Constitution. Delegates will discuss federal and state laws on marital property, inheritance and domestic relations "on the principle that marriage is a partnership in which the contribution of each spouse is of equal importance and value . . . Alimony, child support and property arrangements at divorce should be such that minor children's needs are first to be met and spouses share the economic dislocation of divorce." No action at the conference can thrust on any American-man or woman-an unwanted change of lifestyle, career, marital status. The effort is to shape laws that give women a fair and even break-giving legal recognition that a wife should have an equal say-so with her husband in handling the couple's accumulated estate, give legal recognition that a woman doing the same work as a man should receive equal pay, give legal recognition that a woman is an American citizen due all the protections the Constitution guarantees to ail-but which so far seem to have been given in greater share to men.
