Transcript TOM BASS COMMISSIONER PRECINCT 1 May 2,1979 To: Friends of the ERA For some time I have felt that I have done what I could to encourage the passage of the ERA. After all, I had helped secure its passage in Texas while a member of the State Legislature. Recently, I have reached the conclusion that there is an additional step that I can take. Effective immediately, no employee of Harris County Precinct 1 (i.e. those individuals who are directly under my authority) will be funded with county funds to attend any meetings (conventions, seminars, etc.) in any location in which the state concerned has not ratified the ERA. In addition, the state officials, city officials, and sponsors of the meeting shall be so notified. While this action in itself is minimal, it will serve as a reminder and might encourage other local officials and organizations to adopt a similar policy. Sincerely, Tom Bass Montrose Office * 1521 Sul Ross * Houston, Texas 77006 * 713-221-6116 WOMEN IN ACTION'S WIRES WOMEN'S INFORMATION REFERRAL & EXCHANGE SERVICE 527-0718 an information center to serve all women As a member of the Women's Rights Coordinating Council, the women of OFF THE WALL PRODUCTIONS are presenting an evening of musical entertainment to benefit the Houston Shelter for Abused Women.

You are invited to view Some portraits of Ouisie 's friends, an exhibition of photographs by Janice Rubin, on display at Ouisie's Table and Storeside, 1708 Sunset Blvd., through June 2. Artesanos Mexicanos, a major exhibition of the work of three Mexican folk artists will be displayed at the Houston Public Library downtown during the months of June and July. Works include papier-mache by Pedro Linares, embroidery by Sabina Sanchez and wood-carving by Manuel Jiminez. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Houston Bellas Artes and the Learning Library Program of the Houston Public Library. The pet population crisis is producing millions of unwanted cats and dogs every year. 13.5 million will be killed in shelters this year because there aren't enough homes for them. Only 23 out of 200 of those taken to shelters will find homes—the rest are destroyed, but believe it or not, they are the lucky ones. They die quickly and painlessly. It is the abandoned animal who suffers. Every day, well-meaning people dump pets along roadsides, in new subdivisions and even in trash cans. They think somehow their pet will fend for itself until some kind- hearted soul takes it in and it lives happily ever after. In reality, the animal is sentenced to a slow and agonizing death. It will die of starvation, exposure, disease or under the wheels of a speeding car. It will live out its life in fear and agony. Abandonment is not only horribly cruel, it is also against the law. If you are considering giving up your pet, please don't abandon it. Take it to a local shelter where it will at least have a chance for adoption. If you have a pet, have it spayed or neutered- you don't want to be responsible for one of your pet's offspring ending up like thousands that are abandoned. For spay and neuter information call Citizens for Animal Protection at 871-1221 or 871-1228. Prevent cruelty-"Fix" your pet today.
