Transcript State council news The Texas State N.O.W. Council meeting convened in Lancaster Sept. 23 and the major concern was the E.R.A. extension effort. As of publication of this newsletter, these were the facts: although Senate majority leader Robert Byrd (of W.Va.) had assurances that enough Senators would vote for cloture (to end filibustering against the extension) and would vote for the resolution, he betrayed us when the minority of opposing Senators threatened to filibuster all legislation. This tactic would have possibly delayed the introduction of the extension resolution until after the Senate adjourned early in October for election campaigning. Faced with this threat, Byrd withdrew the resolution from the agenda. (These maneuvers are quite familiar to us by now, since they are typical of unratified legislatures.) However, Sept. 22, Sen. Birch Bayh (of Ind.) approached Byrd with the counterthreat that unless the resolution were rescheduled, proponents of the E.R.A. would filibuster President Carter's energy bill anyway. National N.O.W. quickly scheduled a "Must Do For the E.R.A. Day" for Sept. 26, during which a demonstration was scheduled at the U.S. Capital and N.O.W. members throughout the country were urged to telephone and telegram key Senators to get the extension on the Senate floor. These Senators included Robert Byrd; Howard Baker (of Tenn., representing the opposing minority); Lloyd Bentsen (of Tex.); and Ted Kennedy (of Mass.) Also targeted was President Carter. The State Council promptly voted to pay travel expenses for three council members to the Washington action: Peggy Hall, of Montrose N.O.W.; Gail Baier, of San Antonio N.O.W.; and Maureen Conrad, of Sherman N.O.W. Oct. 29 will be the twelfth anniversary of N.O.W. The past year has been an active and expensive one for N.O.W. during the nationwide effort to get Congress to pass the extension resolution. The legal suits against N.O.W. for encouraging boycotts of unratified states promise to require great expenses, also. As funds are depleted nationally and locally, National N.O.W. has requested that all chapters schedule fundraising events to commemorate our 12 years. Currently, there are tentative plans for a Houston event, but these should be firm by the time of the H.A.N.O.W. business meeting Oct. 4. Please attend the meeting to confirm details. Meanwhile, members may consider donations of $12—a dollar for each year— which can be offered to the H.A.N.O.W. chapter(see p. 8 for address) or mailed to the national office of N.O.W.: now national action center, 425 13TH ST.NW, SUITE 1 0 4 8 , WASH I NGTON , D.C. ZO0O/\. Donations in multiples of 12 ($24, $48, $120, etc.) would help even more. (more COUNCIL NEWS ON P.3)
