Transcript Dear Breakthrough Subscribers: The efforts of our dedicated committee members have measurably increased our subscription rate and our number of volunteers and should soon pay off in higher revenues for the paper. Our fund-raising campaign has now passed the planning stage. The business prospectus detailing our philosophy and projecting our plans for growth has been drafted and will be presented to potential financial backers within the month. The money raised will enable us to hire a full-time editor and a business manager. We will resume full publication at that point. With this issue we are announcing a particularly exciting project. The Houston premiere of Summer Paradise, a film directed by Gunnel Lindblom and produced by Ingmar Bergman, will be a gala benefit fox Breakthrough with a party to follow the screening. Dolores Tarlton and Diane Smith served as advisers for this fundraiser. Mark the date, November 10, on your calendar and read critic Molly Haskell's review in this newsletter. Also, Dr. Nanette Bruckner is hosting a picnic at her home on Dickinson Bayou. Many of Houston's feminist therapists will be the guests of honor, with the proceeds going to Breakthrough. Look for details on the enclosed flyer and in our Network section. We've compiled an encouraging list of volunteer workers from the calls and letters that followed the "want ads" in our June newsletter. One subscriber wrote, "I may not have the time or patience to articulate feminist philosophy . . . but I can damn well see that it's grammatical!" A misunderstanding occurred in a few cases. Some applicants thought the ads were for* paid positions. At present, the rewards of working at Breakthrough do not include money. We apologize for not making that clear. We still need people to staff the office and talk to our many interesting callers. If you have any free time during weekdays, please call. Those of you who have already generously offered your time and talents will be contacted soon with details of how you can help. The telephone committee's success in prompting subscription renewals has been gratifying. Patsy Dozier reports that 90% of those contacted have pledged to renew and our circulation has begun to grow accordingly. During a recent two- week period we received over 100 new or renewed subscriptions. The next step in substantially increasing Breakthrough's circulation will be a direct mail campaign to attract new subscribers. A brochure is being designed for this purpose. Readers with ideas about groups of women to add to our mailing list are urged to call. If we can maintain our volume of renewals while reaching more of the Houston women and men who have not yet discovered us, Breakthrough's future is assured.
