Transcript N.O.W acts for E.R.A, linen National declared the E.R.A. Emergency earlier this year, members all over the country began mobilizing. The National E.R.A. --larch and Rally in Washington, D.C. proved to be successful .u.d very visible. But equally important, if not more so, were the efforts carried out at the grass roots levels, In August, BR0ADSIDE reported the telephoning canpaign to obtain signatures for postcards and letters to the U.S. House of Representatives. This was instrumental in gaining passage of H.J.R. 638. Linda Jones, President of H.A.N.O.W., coordinated a similar campaign for the U.S. Senate in September, and again the Houston area resoonded with enthusiasm. During 8 evenings last month, Ms. Jones organized 21 volunteers for the effort, from several N.O.W. chapters, the L.W.V., and women not affiliated with any group, including some high school women. This effort generated over 1250 postcards and 895 letters. Funds for the printing of the materials and postage were provided by several groups. The Executive ooard of H.A.N.O.W. agreed to donate $100 and then provide $125 as seed money, in hopes that other sources would donate the equivalent as reimbursements. More than $300 has been required in expenses, and a few donations have been offered: Donations have come from A. A.U.W., C.L.U.W., Bay Area N.O.W., Univ. Feminists, and W.P.C.C. A Number of individuals have contributed, and other groups have pledged funds. Several local ousinesses provided telephone facilities for the effort. The goal of this action was to send the message to Senators John Tower and Lloyd Bentsen to vote for trie extension, against rescission, and for cloture. It also succeeded in engaging the local community in a political process of immediate concern to all.
