Transcript June 1973 BROADSIDE Page 6 RECOMMENDED FEMINIST THERE'S A CONTRADICTION INSIDE by April Raines. The first public critique of There's a_ Contradiction Inside came from Channel 11's Steve Ed- wards who called the eiuth'or, Linda April Raines, "a gentle revolutionary". Since then there have been more emotional reactions, from tears of expectant mothers to snickers from businessmen. The Houston Post called There's a Contradiction Inside a 24 year old woman's emotional look at her world. The book has been caught in between the Women's Movement and the rest of the world, and even April doesn't know which side is going to claim it. It touches the cruel routine of "housewifehood" and futile ambitions while it flutters through the joys of feminine vanity. According to April, "This is a very vulnerable book. Every woman seems to feel that her emotions * are laid out for all to see." The book is divided into three parts: "Her and Herself", a simple retrospective search; "Her and Him", a salty and sweet series of man-woman relationships; and "Her and His World", a rebellious look at woman's role in the world man has created. The cover and five color plates are reproductions from original paintings by April. (The originals will be on display at the Kipling Gallery in June.) The originals are acrylic on stretched canvas. All color separations were made directly from the paintings showing some of the finest color work in the publishing industry. There's a_ Contradiction Inside is totally a feminine work from financing to layout. The only part of the product handled by a man was the title page and the titles on the cover, a visual assault to the feminine continuity of the rest of the book. According to April, "That will definitely be changed in the next printing." An active member of Houston NOW, April is a copywriter at Ogilvy and Mather Advertising in Houston. Copies of her book may be obtained at most Houston book stores for $4.95 each or at NOW meetings. A healthy percentage of the profits will come to Houston NOW. BY BONNIE MOORE "People have come when they need the center. Then as their personal lives continue and develop they stop coming. I don't think we'll ever be 'big' for that reason. We're just here for people who need the center." Door- person at Montrose Gaze had that to say about the community center at 504 Fairview. The center is a lonely old house where people amuse themselves pretty much as they see fit. People who want to teach instruct people who want to learn. Sometimes there are dances or dinners. There's a stereo, a television, a pool table, a piano, several conversation areas, soft drinks, and reading material. The center was conceived partly as a social alternative to the bars and partly as a community action. Many of the group who initially provided the energy to create the center have moved on. It is "run" by weekly meetings which are open. In fact, open describes the center very well. I've never been inside a community building of any sort in which I felt so little control by some authority other than simply whatever part of the community happened to be present. One of the early members (he did the painting, fund-raising, and organizing stages) now does not go there. He says he just doesn't like to hang out. "It's a lonely place, and lonely places frighten me." It is a lonely place. It's no one's home yet anyone can temporarily be at home there. As a community center it's the most successful I've seen and I recommend it to anyone who needs a boost to their sense of community. The center is open from 6 to 10 PM and meetings are on Wednesday nights NOW JOB OPENING The chapter receives many calls from women who are looking for jobs. Unfortunately, there is no set referral system in NOW. The essentials are there for an effective job bureau, but a "Bureau Chief" is needed. No experience is necessary, only a willingness to work. The Bureau Chief reports directly to the President and is paid the same 5-figure salary ($00,000) as the NOW officers. 1 Basically, the Job Bureau will operate as follows: (l)Resumes of interested persons will be kept on file. (2)Government contractors and other large companies will be notified to submit job openings to the Bureau. (3)Selected openings will be published in the Broadside. (4)A11 openings will be posted at the Center. (5)Persons submitting resumes will be notified of openings in their fields. Apply immediately to Parrish Hirasaki, 332-4247.
