Still to be done is collection of the pledges, thank you notes to all the contributors and efforts at recruiting to NOW membership all the many Equal Rights Amendment supporters who heard our ads on radio and TV or saw our posters and came out and walked in the hot August sun. There were at least 128 of these hearty souls. If everybody collects all their pledges, and if everybody walked at least 3 miles, our total pledged amount is $5,932.25. However, many people told us they planned to continue soliciting contributions after the walkathon, since they hadn't gotten to all their friends yet, and additionally, we know many of the walkers made more than one circuit of the three mile course, so we may do even better. Special recognition should go to the workers who helped get it all together. They were: Deborah Moncrief Bell, Houston Area NOW Pat Kuhlman, Bay Area NOW Jo Ann Evansgardner, NOW at U of H, CC George Monken, Houston Area NOW Lee Lanoo, Houston Area NOW Gerry Gardner, NOW at U of H, CC Melanie Harrow, NOW at U of H, CC and Meme English, Deanna Stevenson, Leeann Wachs, Kris Hal stead, M. A. Williams and the Audio-Visual Department of U of H. Jeanne Sommerfeld of our chapter has volunteered to oversee the bookkeeping. If you have time to help with the follow-up, please call Deborah Bell, 681-9507 or Jo Ann Evansgardner, 741-4009. Some kind of reward for determined persistence should go to Mary Skinner of Bay Area NOW. She insisted on finishing the whole twelve miles because she had $19/mile in pledges, despite the fact that she experienced enough symptoms of heat prostration to worry the rest of us a lot. There was at least one bloody blistered foot and gallons of ice cold water were consumed. We have prizes still to be awarded -- for the person who collects the most money, most sponsors, biggest single amount, etc. Please get your pledged money in; and don't be shy about "post hoc" soliciting. Every dime is needed. Prizes were contributed by Heide's Women's Store, Luna Cat Creations, Gigolo, The Book Store, Deborah Bell. Next month we will have a complete list of all the businesses that contributed. Finally, our chapter hosted a Suffrage Celebration at the Student Life Plaza on August 26th. The music, the setting, the wine*, the presence of so much feminist commitment made us all feel renewed in spirit for the coming ten months of concentrated effort for ratification. Jo Ann Evansgardner *Cindy Caudle, president of SW NOW and Blue Bonnet Beverages made having wine at our party possible.
