Transcript STATE COUNCIL REPORT State Council met here March 29. BANOW provided facilities, housing and refreshments; many council members attended the special early opening of Trie VlnnQA PaAtij for NOW members the next day. Heartfelt thanks to Dorothy Howard, Evie Whitsett, Marj Randall, Judy Blanchard, Alma Green el at. for taking such good care of the council! The major item in the State Coordinator's report (Teri Chandler) concerns Air Force Captain Rena Kelly at Dyes Air Force Base. She is being court-martialed for having her topcoat unbuttoned on three occasions—while entering or leaving buildings, which makes the charge that she was out of uniform questionable. Apparently, she is being harrassed because of her strong stance on behalf of women at the base. Letters of support can be mailed to her at 118 Nebraska, Dyes, Texas 79607. The Communication Coordinator (Beth Hudman) announced that Victoria has been dropped from the active chapter list, but we have three new chapters: North Dallas, the Golden Triangle (Beaumont-Port Arthur-Orange area) and UT-Austin (which will work closely with the Austin chapter). The Treasurer (Phyllis Tucker) reported that as of March 29, the state's coffers held $1402.26, without counting a large check that was lost at the time. Much time was spent discussing the May 10 ERA March in Chicago—and how the state organization might help people travel there. This march is a high-priority event, but its distance makes it difficult for many Texas NOW members to attend. At last, $1000 was voted from the treasury to help move as many Texas NOW members as possible to Illinois for the march. A committee chaired by Jan Stevens of Houston was named to apportion these funds. [Evie Whitsett o<$ Bay kioja Is on this cornmlttee.) The budget, approved only last meeting, suffered considerable revision to free this money but emerged workable. Another item that consumed much time was the Texas NOW Convention the weekend of May 16 in Huntsville. The call to convention going out in the mail contains more about the convention. It will be light on speakers, full of workshops and business. (Trie wonfishop list might give you a cajse o£ oveAcholce--&o many good thing* to do and lexxJinl) Please, if you plan to attend, preregister—especially for child care, dorm space and the meal plan. If you have been in Huntsville for a large gathering before, you know better than to try to arrange for these in the town if you have a more convenient (not to mention cheaper) option. Child cane, donm Apace and the meal plan will only be annanged Ion those who pneneglsteA Ion them. It will be possible to pneAeglsteA ion. lome oi these without paying ion thorn until you oJOiive. They one well wonth double the pnlcejs being asked! Other topics discussed but requiring no action Precinct conventions. See the BANOW business meeting minutes; delegates to nominating conventions can influence our election choices, and the precinct is the level at which to begin your involvement. The National March on Washington, D.C. for Righteousness and Morality, April 28-29, also known as "Washington for Jesus." For more Information, write the Texas Gay Task Force at P.O. Box 2026, Universal City, Texas 78148.
