Transcript Texas NOW State Council With Barbara Duke presiding as State Coordinator, the first State Council meeting since Abilene was held In Austin on July 17. There were 46 NOV/ members in attendance as officers, delegates and oarticinant observers. Frances Hicks and Jeanne Saletan were there from Bay Area. ^he council meeting place was a gracious room just off the beautiful and light Chamber of the House of Representatives where, you may recall from ERA hearings, hangs the picture of Susan B. Anthony. Austin chapter supplied us with r?ood food and drink so that we could work through lunchtlme and adjourn almost on schedule. Onlv about $800 remain in the state treasury. We will need more money to spend on ERA both at home and abroad and money to fund our task forces. An easy way to raise funds is through the NOW magazine fundraiser. When chapter members renew or make new subscript tions through a privately owned business set up for the purpose, rebates of about $4 on a $10 subscription are obtained and mailed directly to NOW. Beats' garage sales, doesn't it? Addressed envelopes will soon be available to you along with detailed instructions. Meanwhile, get your subscription forms and renewal notices ready. San Antonio was selected to be the site of our next state convention in October, 1977. The chanter there numbers 125, mostly active, and they promise us good hospitality with an emphasis on feminist music. The council chose San Antonio over El Paso and Galveston because it wanted a central location which would draw more people. Only 124 members out of a total Texas NOW membership of 686 went to Abilene whereas 300 had gone to Austin the previous year. Louise Yerby of El Paso chapter has asked to head a Task Force on Older Women at the state level, and several chapters expressed a wish to start activity on this issue as we were urged to do by Laurie Shields at Abilene. Do we want a Task Force on Women in Religion? We are scouting out interests in local chapters to report back to state. Education and Criminal Justice Task Forces gave renorts on their current activities. We directed Tommy Brent, Communications Coordinator, to send a mailgram to President Ford stating why we don't like his off-the-cuff decision to reinstate father-son and mother-daughter functions in our school buildings. A similar message will go to Jimmy Carter and a commendation to HEW Secretary for stopping the President's directive. Two important meetings coming up are: the National By-Laws Conference in Kansas City on October 8f and the National Conference in Detroit in April, 1977. mhe next three council meeting dates are:" September 18, November 20, and January 15 (all Saturdays) in Austin. Wo were told that about 60-6.5*? of the national population is in favor of ERA, according to a recent poll. Yet it is anticipated that triux the anti-ERA forces in Texas will be mobilizing their strength. To get the jump on them and to show our strength we will plan a pro-ERA rally in Austin early in the legislative session which begins in January. We will also urge Individual contacts with legislators. We want to support ^A effort in the unratified states and at the same time bold the fort in Texas. Jeanne Salatan "Shoulder to Shoulder," a fascinating, beautifully produced TV series on the British Suffragettes' courageous struggle for the vote, is repeating on Masterpiece Theater, Channel 8, Sunday, 8 pm. The series is built around the story of the Pankhurst women, a remarkable mother and her two equally remarkable daughters. Don't miss it1!
