Transcript Page 2 BROADSIDE December 19.73 BROADSIDE STAFF: Editor Jan Dilbeck Advertising Pat German Circulation Chris Feahr Contributors Janice Blue, Harla Kaplan, Allison Korn, Jeanne Necaise, Mary Ross Rhyne NOW OFFICERS: Dear Reader: I was going to write an article on 'sisterhood' for this issue. I tried, I really did. I spent four days and filled two Big Chief tablets and wound up with an incredible hodgepodge of inadequate definitions, childhood traumas, and other nonsense. President Vice President Secretary Treasurer Jeanne Necaise 772-4843 Harla Kaplan 772-4987 Linda Bayer 644-4861 Joan Ritter 488-3964 TASK FORCE COORDINATORS: Center Directors Child Care Education Employment FCC Fund Raising Marriage and Divorce Politics and Lobbying Rape Crisis Center Reproduction and its Control Speakers Bureau Women in the Arts Women in Poverty Jackie Howard Rose Marie Lund 785-4794 Linda England 721-2831 Kay Whyburn 667-8556 Linda Bayer 644-4861 Betty Barnes 487-2489 Susan Hedding 667-5443 Joan Ritter 488-3964 Eileen Martin 448-5167 Helen Cassidy 748-5369 Linda Cryer 748-6915 Nancy Kuykendall 664-4152 Muncy McKinney 944-5534 April Raines 528-0479 Peggy Hall 528-3424 Besides, at the time I tried to write the thing, I had only semi-recovered from three days of some godawful mutant intestinal virus. The last thing I needed at that point was aggravation, right? Well, that's when the shit hit the fan. (Where did that expression come from, I wonder? Whose shit? What fan? It must be another one of life's unexplained mysteries.) I began getting incredible flak about the so- called 'centerfold' in last month's issue. The problem has been solved but it was hairy for a while. All of this left me feeling about as sisterly as a snake. Then, a few nights ago, I arrived early for a Board Meeting at the Center. Four or five of us were sitting around the front room when a stranger walked in. She approached the person at the desk and said, in a small but firm voice, "I'm pregnant and I want an abortion and I need help". Fortunately, the person at the desk was Harla Kaplan. I say fortunately because Harla has all the right qualities for handling situations like that one. Harla provided the stranger with the necessary information, and at the same time managed to wordlessly convey her concern and support. And, although each of us talked with the stranger and tried to be helpful, it was Harla who carried the ball. After the stranger left we all just sat quietly for a moment, happy we had been able to help. Then I looked over at Harla and said, "That's what it's all about". Noel, sisters.
