Transcript roles in society, as well as Initiating thoughtful discussions about the roles of both men and women students, staff, and faculty." The distribution table was furnished with a poster stating that armband sale proceeds were destined for Bay Area NOW. After $5.30 in expenses, we made $94.10 from this action. CLOSE-UP MARY BUXTON - 3746 Lake Street, Houston, Texas, 77098, 523-1928 Mary E. Buxton, our first chapter President, was born in Seattle, Washington. She has lived in Washington, Oregon, New York, California and Texas. She has two daughters, Cindy and Jill, who attend schools in Southwest Houston. Mary received her B.S. in Political Science from the University of Houston in May of 1975. She is employed by the American Society for Medical Technology. Presently, she serves as State Co-Coordinator of the Continuing Task Force on Education. We appreciate Mary's devoted efforts to feminism. STATE AND NATIONAL SCENE Texas N.O.W. State Council Once again it is proved that if a state organizational meeting is held in Houston, attendance records will be set. More than 40 persons attended the TNC meeting in the U of H Student Union on November 15. Because Frances Hicks, our usual delegate to the Council, is still recuperating, Marjorie Randal attended as representative of Bay Area NOW. Among business transacted were the following: Telegrams from Texas NOW advocating a strong feminist woman for the Supreme Support for woman volley ball team member discriminated against by Texas A&I, Kingsville. Establishment of a committee on concerns of Third World Women. Establishment of Sat. & Sun., Memorial Day Weekend, as dates of next State Conference. Houston, San Antonio, and Abilene submitted bids to be site. Election of Helen Cassidy as Texas delegate to upcoming National By-laws Convention. Report of State Task Force Coordinator (elected at this meeting) Ruth Thornton of Dallas, concerning results of five chapter task force questionnaires returned so far. This was followed by discussion of task force priorities, which will be continued at next meeting, after more questionnaires have been returned. Appointment of next meeting in San Antionio, January 17. NOW NATIONAL CONFERENCE (Notes from Austin NOW Newsletter, Nov. 1975) Two very important resolutions were passed by the Convention. The first, passed by an overwhelming-majority, established the accomplishment of equal rights for lesbians as a national priority for NOW; allocated at least 1% of National dues for the National Task Force on Sexuality and Lesbianism; and directed that task force to coordinate legislative efforts on the local, state, and national levels to secure passage of Bella Abzug's HR 5452 and similar legislation to establish full civil rights for lesbians and remove all criminal law restrictions on sexual preference.
