"The more we know about her story, the less question there will be that o funfit y means women, too," says Representative Patricia Schroeder (D-CO). Before the bill can be introduced in the House, a majority of the Representatives must co-sponsor it. So write to your Representative (the Honorable , U.S. Mouse of Representatives, Washington DC 50515) and urge him or her to co-sponsor H.J. Resolutic t SOX ERA loses in Illinois House vote SPRINGFIELD, 111. (UPI) — The embattled Equal Rights Amendment, mired for the past month in political brokering and a vote-buying controversy, was again rejected by the Illinois House. Sponsors at a later date can call another vote on the measure, which fell five votes short of passage on a 102-71 roll call. The vote was taken Wednesday, just hours after President Carter made a last-minute pugh for passage. Carter spoke by telephone to a recalcitrant black legislator in an attempt to persuade him to cast a "yes" vote. Sponsors had contended earlier they had the 107 votes necessary to pass the measure, and possibly 111 if they got the 107th vote. But they didn't make it, despite House Speaker William Redmond holding the vote open for any latecomers. One of the other sponsors. Rep. John Matije- vieh, D-North Chicago, implied that Republican failed to deliver the votes necesssn CJulH P*\J The ERA has not passec the Illinois House since May 1. 1975, when it got 113 votes. However, the Senate did not vote on it that year. A vote has been taken in the Legislature every year since 1972, with the exception of 1979. A vote was postponed May 14 when a nose count found only 105 votes on the floor. Since that aborted effort, ERA has become mired in political infighting and in bribery charges. One supporter has been indicted on charges she offered a legislator $1,000 for his vote. The latest roadblock to ratification is a threat by Rep. William Henry, a black Chicago Democrat, to vote against ERA because he feels the interests of his mostly black constituents have been neglected by state and federal officials for 'years and years." Henry, who called Carter at the president's request, said Carter promised he would send top officials from the De- Eirtment of Housing and rfean Development and the Department of Labor to meet with him and Chicago West Side officials "in t!ie very near future." The conversation lasted about five minutes. I BELIEVE that the Equal Rights Amendment should become a part of the American Constitution without further delay. Because Florida is one of the states holding up ratification, I hereby pledge that I wil^ not vacation in that state until its Legislature ratifies ERA* Name Size of Family,.
