Transcript now accused The Daily Cougar, University of Houston student newspaper, reported that Sue Wittie and Juneau Shepherd, defeated candidates for office in our chapter, had accused Houston Area NOW of improperly using University of Houston facilities. The complaint was made to Rick Brass, chair of the University Center Policy Board. Brass approached Betty Barnes on the matter shortly after the results of the presidential ballot were announced on election night, November 12. Brass filed charges before the UH Organizations Board on November 13 and presented Houston Area NOW with a bill for $450 from the University Center for room use charges for 1975. This bill included charges for use of the Appaloosa Room on November 12 which was reserved by Wittie and Shepherd and used by them for the dissemination of their campaign literature. Although Brass subsequently dropped his charges, new charges have been filed by James Moriarty, a UH law student. According to a reliable source, the bill for $450 is being recomputed to include charges dating back to 1972 and amounting to over $4000. "University of Houston NOW has been officially recognized as a campus organization since 1972 and as such had the right to host off-campus groups such as Houston Area NOW. In such a case, room charges are free according to the UH Center Board policy," said Betty Barnes, president of Houston Area NOW. "We know of no violations of UH policy that any affiliate of NOW, Inc. has committed. I view these charges as political and economic harassment. Houston Area NOW, the largest chapter in the South, has been extremely effective in the battle for women's rights. It is an obvious target for persons who wish to obstruct the battle against sexism.", Barnes continued. Nancy Hormachea and Helen Cassidy, Houston Area NOW members, have been retained by the Houston Area NOW Executive Committee as attorneys in the matter. When the matter was brought before the University Center Policy Board on November 13% Cassidy protested that NOW had received no written notice of the meeting, no notification of alleged infractions, and that any consideration of the matter was out of order. The Policy Board then voted to postpone any action until November 20. On November 20 the Policy Board tabled all further discussion of the matter until a decision was rendered by the UH Organizations Board. On that same day, November 20, the UH Organizations Board voted to hear charges dating back to 1972, over the strong protests of Julius Gordon, Associate Dean of Students and member of the Organizations Board. The Board then went into closed session to consider procedures for a hearing. No date for the hearing had been set at press time. 7
