Transcript June 1972 BROADSIDE Page 3 CRATER'S RAIDERS TRIUMPH OVER CONGRESS For months "Crater's Raiders," a band of about 35 women, have roamed the halls of Congress. These women had adopted as their mission in life persuading Congress to pass the Equal Rights Amendment. With thousands of "sisters" and some "brothers" across the country, they formed one of the most powerful and unlikely pressure groups that Congress has ever seen in action. When the Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution sailed through the U.S. Senate by a lopsided 84 to 8 votes, they had pulled off one of the coups of the century. "Crater's Raiders" took their name from Mrs. Flora Crater, their leader, a Fairfax, Va., housewife. Although most of her small army were amateurs, Flora Crater is a political veteran, having worked in the Virginia Democratic party for 20 years, once running unsuccessfully for Fairfax County supervisor. For many months Flora Crater and her shifting brigade would meet ewery Wednesday in the House or Senate cafeteria (depending on where the action was at the moment), to study tally sheets and fan out to touch base in congressional offices. They quickly became familiar faces in every office, keeping track of how the legislators planned to vote. When they encountered diffi culties, they turned the problem over to Carol Burn's, a NOW member who would get on the phone with members of NOW or the National Women's Political Caucus in the Congressmen's home states. Phyllis Schultz, one of the raiders, has \/ery strong feelings about the future of women, "This is women's era, and the 70's are going to belong to women, just like the 60's were the era of the blacks." N.O.W. ELECTION OF OFFICERS UPCOMING Incredible as it may seem to older N.O.W. members, nearly a year has passed since our last election of officers. N.O.W. Houston By-Laws governing election of President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer specify the first Wednesday in July as the annual business meeting, at which such elections shall be held. Thus, this year's elections will be held at the July 5 meeting, Clayton Library Guesthouse, 5300 Caroline, at 7:30 p.m. Every local member whose dues are paid is eligible to run for office, to nominate herself for office or nominate another member, and to vote in the elections. A Nominating Committee will select a full slate of candidates before the July meeting, in accordance with the By-Laws, but individual members may nominate others - or themselves - for any of the four offices. Every dedicated N.O.W. member should seriously consider running for one of these offices. N.O.W. President Helen Cassidy suggests only two requirements: Each candidate should have the Energy and the time to actively pursue N.O.W. goals. And Helen should know! She has done a fabulous job during 1971-72.
