Transcript Page 6 BROADSIDE August 1974 WOMEN IN SPORTS HEW has issued the Title IX Guidelines and a public hearing on the guidelines was held at the University of Houston last Wednesday. Briefly, here's what the guidelines do, and do not, provide: (l) They provide for separate but equal teams or one team which is integrated in direct proportion to the ratio of men to women in the student body (thus, schools cannot evade the guidelines by opening their varsity teams to women, knowing that women would not have the skills necessary to make the teams); (2) members of the student body must be surveyed yearly to determine what activities they wish the school to provide; (3) physical education classes will be integrated; (4) women's teams must have equal use of athletic facilities and coaching, training, equipment and transportation for sporting events must be equal; (5) women's scholarships must be proportional to the men's scholarships, again taking into account the men/women ratio of the student body; and (6) the guidelines specifically state that they do not provide for equal funding. In this regard, the HEW representative noted that they would not be looking at budgets to determine whether or not a school was in compliance with the guidelines. The guidelines in their present form are vague and ambiguous, leaving a lot of room for schools to evade equality without being in direct violation of the guidelines. Further, we should expect, and be prepared to deal with, legislation similar to the Tower amendment as the sections of the guidelines dealing with scholarships and equal facilities, etc., are generating a lot of controversy. HEW has also indicated that they probably will not force immediate compliance with this section of the guidelines because they realize that it is a "problem" area. The possibility also exists that we could see great changes in the guidelines prior to their final implementation by HEW, which is projected to be in January 1975' Feminists are not satisfied with the guidelines in their present form but the big business interests of college sports are even less satisfied and will do everything they can to reduce the guidelines to the status of a "paper tiger". We have until October 15 to recommend changes, deletions or additions to HEW and this will be the primary goal of this Task Force throughout the remainder of the summer. Anyone desiring more information on the guidelines, a copy of the guidelines, or who wishes to comment on the guidelines should get in touch with Kay Whyburn or myself. Jan Cunningham MENTAL HEALTH The Mental Health Task Force was formed at a July 12 meeting. Our priority goals include: (1) Formation of a referral list of non-biased (in as many ways possible) psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, "groups", etc., who provide counseling services in Houston. (2) Providing workshops to explain the background, training and availability of professionals who do counseling. (3) Working through school counselors to start a program of consciousness raising groups for high school women. (Glenda McKinney has agreed to serve as an advisor on this subject.) Task Force workers will be needed to interview professional counselors and to go into the schools in late August. Anyone who has had a positive experience with a psychologist, etc., please put a note in my mailbox at the Women's Center and I will contact you to fill out a referral form. If you are interested In improving mental health care in this community, please come to the next meeting of our Task Force at 8:00 pm on Monday, August 12, at the Women's Center. Barbara Brown
