Holcombe (Corner of Greenbriar) (713)668-0075 Dectmbtr/Janaary 1980 Vol. 4, no. IS Congratulations on your growth, on your past several issues and especially congratulations on the November 1979 Breakthrough. I usually leaf through the issue after it comes in the mail, . . . browse about and usually find myself content with the growth and maturity the paper and the feminist community is seeing. However, this issue was something else. The articles on rape, pornography, the Pope and the doctor had me reading almost every printed word. It was excellent. PHYLLIS FRYE Your October election issue prompted me to renew my Breakthrough subscription for the coming year. I thought your coverage of the candidates was exceptional. Their answers to your questions were a tremendous aid in solving my dilemma of who to vote for. In fact, being a lucky recipient of two October issues, my boyfriend and I sat down that Monday night to read and compare observations. SUSAN A.SPEERT Thank you so much, for the election issue especially, and for all those others before. JUDITH ANN EMERSON I am writing in reference to the cover picture of the November 1979 issue of Breakthrough. When this painting was first done, I had objected to it and had asked the City Legal Department to investigate to see if we might find some ordinance that was violated. I was told that CONTENTS FEATURES 8 Who Were You 10 Years Ago? 16 Houstonians examine a decade of their lives 16 1970: a year violence roared by David Crossley 20 Liberty Hall: an interview with co-founder Ryan Trimble by Janice Blue 24 Nuclear soldier by Niami Hanson it was within all City ordinances. I do not feel that this type of art is a credit to women or to the community. However, in this as in many other instances, there is an inherent conflict between Constitutional guarantees of free speech, press, etc. and the rights of individuals to be protected against violence and slander. LOUIS MACEY I thought you might be interested in printing these statements made to me during job interviews not long ago. Statements by Prospective Employers or Why secretaries go to night school "What I need is an unencumbered Girl Friday." "Wefl, no, I can't say there are really any opportunities for growth or promotion from this secretarial position, but then my job as senior vice president will be the same five years from now, too." "I want someone who's good looking for a permanent job. My last secretary stayed only five years." "Before your interview, we'd like you to take our typing test and dictation tests. Then, there's the spelling and the verbal ability tests and, finally, a little test of logic." "You have a husband. Why do you want to work?" PENNY BELL P. S. I did not work for any of the above.
