Transcript CHICAGO, ILLINOIS. Saturday Homing, May 10, 1_98Q by Lynn McGregor Thousands of people have gathered in Chicago to walk in the National ERA March for Ratification sponsored by NOW. In the downtown area people in white clothing can be seen everywhere. Button sellers and leafleters dot the street corners. In spite of a light drizzle, the marchers started to assemble in Grant Park well before the 10 AM start time. People from all over the country sat around banners and signs indicating their organization. These included NOW chapters from every state and local chapters from Illinois and surrounding states, labor unions, religious organizations and political parties. There was even a dog with an ERA sign on its back. For anyone arriving after 9:30 AM, finding your delegation was a real problem in the crowds. The purple, gold and white banners were held high but a strong wind off Lake Michigan made them hard to read. A party atmosphere prevailed. Above us we saw TV helicopters and a light plane pulling a "Mormons for ERA"banner. At 10:15 AM the announcement came over the loudspeaker that the march would begin. Motorcycle police led the way followed by a line of eleven women and men carrying the banner NATIONAL MARCH FOR ERA RATIFICATION IN ILLINOIS. Behind them came the workers from National NOW and the guest celebrities and speakers, the the Womens Marching Band from California, and then the individual delegations. When we turned from Michigan Avenue to the Ralley site, we passed a huge communications truck packed with TV cameras and reporters. It took lj hours (!!) for all delegations to leave Grant Park. The crowd was estimated at 50,000. Texas was near the last but spirits Here high as we started off singing "The Eyes of Texas Are Upon YouM to special ERA lyrics. Among our band of 100 Texans were the following people from Bay Area: Gail Anderson, James and Bobbie Faulkner, Judy Blanchard, Judy Royster, Caroline Maggio and daughters, Rema Lou Brown, Twiss Butler, Sonia Doty, Bob Doughty, Lou McFaddin, Lynn McGregor and her daughter Karen Erickson, Jeanne Saletan, Evie Whitsett, Dana Kelly and Bonnie Huval .'77Ld2to<^/ At the rally site, the speakers looked out over a sea of white. Gloria Steinem, Sonia Johnson, Phil Donahue, Mario Thomas, Betty Friedan, Mayor Byrne, Jesse Jackson, Ellie Smeal and Bella Abzug were ajnong the speakers. Finally at 4PM a tired crowd dispersed to return home to work even harded for ERA. (Lynn took pictures which we will show.) Coors of Galveston County Aluminum Recycling 2750 HOLMES ROAD 748-6740 $ HOUSTON. TEXAS 77051 PAY TO THE ORDER OF FIRST HUTCHINGS-SEALY NATIONAL BANK P. O. BOX 1500 GALVESTON. TEXAS 77553 COORS CONTRIBUTES TO ERA! !S Betty Yancey is the jefe of this operation. Though not the largest contribution Coors has made to the ERA by way of buying Bay Area NOW aluminum for recycling, it is the first one made by check, giving Adolph accountable proof of his support despite his anti-ERA efforts■ Aluminum cans are all they accept now, so forget frozen food containers0 Even so, at 25 cents a pound, the 35 pounds turned in this time add up to $8075 for very little effort on our parts. Other places may offer more money for the aluminum, but none offer such satisfaction for ERA supporters0
