Transcript LE VOTE IN SPRINGFIELD (con't) While Phyllis was talking I was standing as close as a shadow with my white western hat on that we had all worn in the march and it had ERA buttons and labels all over it. Antis kept trying to block me out of the picture by shoving their placards in front of my face but I just kept bending them back and smiling and finally Phyllis heself pushed her own placard away when it threatened to obscure HER so they let me be. Next she was given a beautiful fat Hispanic baby to hold (to show that Chicanas don't want ERA) and once again I was on the other side of the baby beeming at it (ERA women love babies, too). It sure was fun. The antis were dressed like "ladies" but behaved like boors when we held our Wednesday rally. They tried to shout us down and only our forsight in having a good sound system allowed Kristin Lems to be heard up to the fourth floor of the rotunda. We, on the other hand, had been instructed by our leaders to make no disruption when they held the anti rally and we were quiet. We were told that it was ILLEGAL for us to come to Illinois to lobby because we are Texans and we answered that this is a national issue and we were openly identified as Texans and proud of it, not trying to pass for in-staters. We got several TV interviews just because we are Texans. So when you read in the papers about the vote being postponed in Illinois because of bribery charges just think what would YOU do if you were P.P.S. and her ilk and you saw a real danger that Labor and Blacks and Religious groups had swollen the ranks of ERA support this year to a dangerous (for you) degree? SOMETHING DESPERATEl Like bribery charges. Anything to halt the tide. Buy time to do your bribing behind the scenes as usual as was done in Florida. I am convinced that they always accuse us of the very tactics they themselves are using. A rumor was spread that we were paying people $10 each to appear for ERA. Knowing how much our people spent to come and at what sacrifice I promptly turned this back with "Of course not, but I heard that YOU were paid to be here." What can we do to fight agianst these tactics without sinking to the same low? I am thinking that we must really turn to the economic boycott in full force. I am waiting to hear what others think about next steps for ERA. Jeanne Saletan LETTERS TO THE NEWSPAPERS Can you write a letter on ERA to the Houston Post or Chronicle? Deal with the bribery charge and stress how this should not deflect responsible legislators from ratification. If you wish, you can check your letter with me before mailing it. XS ERA ACTION TEAM Ann Pine took over the action team while we were in Chicago and did an excellent job. Her workers were Lee Matous, Jean Stein, Linda Holleman, Lynn McGregor, Roberta Blackburn, Judy Blanchard and Nora Mertz. Other members supported the Chicago effort with money for those who could go. Contributions were received from Nora Mertz, Betty Yancey, Ann Pine, Linda Holleman, Wendy Rudnicki. t Carolyn Conley; TfliViUL. Stinnrui^rr^ * We meet every Wednesday at the law office of Rachel Suarez at 1199 NASA Rd. 1, Suite 200. Since February 1st, Rachel has let us use her office for this purpose. Rachel has a general civil law practice. Please call ^71-2862 to find out how you can participate. Tnanks to all who took letter writing kits at the last meeting. More kits can be dispatched to those who prefer to work at home. J. Saletan CHAMBER MUSIC BY WOMEN Lorraine Merrill, piano, and Jill Brindel, cello, and Beatrice Stanley, violin played the lyrical Archduke Trio at UH/CLC on Sunday May 25. Works by Bloch and Dvorak were also included. Watch for this outstanding group next fall, the Clear Lake Chamber Music Society. This little known group brought us professional performance and needs our community support. ** Thanks to Dana Kelly for her labor of love, hand-stitching the letters on our green banner for Chicago. Bobbie Faulkner did the same for our Texas for ERA banner. James and Bobbie Faulkner got special marshall assignments at the march. They were in charge of security at the grandstand. Bobbie was complimented by a secret service agent whom she WOULD NOT admit to the restricted area....just doing her job! Ask Bobbie about her history of organizing women in the meat cutters union and her convictions about ERA.
