Transcript MARJORIE RANDAL, Bay Area NOW....Frances Hicks, Sonia Carmean, and their daughters ran the last three miles of the Torch Relay in Houston. Sonia had had a fantasy in the days before the event of lightly running backward in front of the celebrities, taking pictures for Breakthrough. The reality was different - daughter Dana and the others wearing the blue runners' t-shirts receded slowly into the distance ahead, while Sonia, in high-heeled boots that were not by Adidas, tried to run faster. Then it rained. The three opposition pickets near the run's finish disappeared. Sonia made the distance, triumphant. She reported for duty at delegate registration - damp, shoeless, but happy. PHYLLIS TUCKER, Bay Area NOW Observations of _a Shit-worker Goose bumps and tears welling up as the Torch entered the Coliseum. Discovery that this radical, liberal person is still turned on by red, white, and blue and singing of "Glory, glory, Hallelujah!" Listening to Coretta King's body-guard running up and exclaiming "Guess who's coming in - Margaret Mead!" Awe and respect for this wonderful woman. Margaret Mead - little, gray- haired, bright sharp eyes, her arm touching the elbow of this tall man - he walking back with tears in his eyes saying, "that is the most important and beautiful lady in the world." Strolling the floor as Barbara Jordan is presented to the audience and feeling the strong emotion sweep over the whole crowd. Watching young black women clapping, shouting, whistling, with tears streaming down their cheeks in acknowledgment that a heroine is there before them, that they too can have a voice in their own country, that they do have a future in the world. Observing older black women standing proud that here is a woman such as they who has struggled against tremendous odds - and can stand with pride as a representative of their own race. Feeling of pride as the Guam delegation presents me with a necklace as thanks for help to them during the Conference....Pride as the Utah delegation stays seated while other anti's walk...Feelings of despair as Monday's session breaks down in utter chaos...Feelings of anger at lack of information and instructions for volunteers....Feelings of gladness that disorganization and confusion did not appear to the viewing public....Extreme pride to be a part of this great event! TWISS BUTLER, Bay Area NOW Despite a notoriously defective memory, I think I'll long recall: Virginia Currey arriving at the Babe Didrickson memorial in Beaumont in her rakish yellow car with the IWY banner streaming from the antenna, to herald the arrival of the Torch Relay. Later, on hot and sunny Highway 90, Betty Yancey running with the torch - a helicopter hovering overhead, a police car up front with photographer leaning out to photograph her and her running mates, and another police car trailing behind issuing siren-calls "Want a ride?...We've got air-conditioning..." I believe we grinned the whole distance. Rema Lou Brown maintaining composure during delegate registration when, in response to her request for his ID, a member of the Mississippi delegation handed her his KKK membership card. During the plenary sessions, looking down from the gallery where I was Maintaining Order in a Non-Partisan Manner, to see Frances Hicks, surrounded by mike-seeking delegates, dancing on tip-toe on a rickety folding chair and frantically waving her big signal card to gain the attention of the Chair. Had I glanced across the floor a little later, I might also have seen Phyllis Tucker firmly dispatching Gloria Steinem to the end of the line to wait her turn at the micrcphone (amid naughty egalitarian grins from the Texas delegation) . The crazy cheerfulness and friendliness of people standing in endless lines for registration and session tickets. The good-natured cooperation of observers who responded to my call for a litter brigade to muck out our section of the gallery between sessions because I was tired of wading through derelict hot cogs and soda cans. (Those red shirts conferred power,man!)
