TTERS Editor: State Senator Neff Stafford of Buffalo should be on his bill to rescind ERA approval in speaking of the bill they passed extending the time to where they can vote as many times as they want pass but nobody can vote to rescind. Who would would have a Congress so greedy votes that they would offer anything so ridiculously With ERA's cry for fairness, why not fairness in the this bill? ERA was never really intended to help women. It was used a political weapon, and it satisfies the unChristian stance those who would like to destroy the American home and What more honored position could there be for a be in the God-given place of the home with her as the head of that home! the laws we have now -- not add more The only exception I know of is in the area of taxation. We need to pass a law that all women be same as men in this area and that a mother and one-half owner with her husband in any estate. noblest position is, as God has ordained, to be a partner, and mother. God knew what he was iFor Christian American homes, Sally Chord Box 639 Gillette, Wyoming 82716 Editor: would like to pass along to your readers an incident that to me about a month ago. I took my car into an dealership here in Cheyenne to have a door repaired. Several weeks earlier, I had broken an air- which had to be ordered form California. took the car in for the door handle repair, I asked if the air-conditioner switch had come and said that it had. I signed a work order was told that I could pick the car up that afternoon. That I returned to pick up the car and was told that the had to be ordered but that the air-conditioner replaced. The charges for replacing the air- were $149.55. Inall fairness, the price of was $71.80, but it took four hours and $72.00 worth the switch. Needless to say, I was more than I paid the bill feeling as though I had been out for some sort of punishment. I left the agency a new air-conditioner switch, a car that I still could not the driver's side, and a new suprise--windshield did not work properly! to friends, the more I realized that I had singled out for some type of punishment, but that lust joined a not-too-exclusive club. It seemed as had horror stories that at least equalled many of them being much worse. They asked if wasn't something that could be done to give the fair shake in dealing with the automobile dealers (The answer, you may be thinking, is to take to another shop. In my case, the next closest shop been either Boulder or Denver.) I think there is that can be done. This legislative session, a bill introduced modeled after states that now have laws Lhe consumer. There is no doubt in my mind that introduced, the Automobile Dealers Association .will spend a considerable amount'of time and against it. Because I intend to head up a group to lobby for the bill, I need the help in a very real way.

That aspect has already been covered by the Equal Employment Opportunity Act of 1972 and equal credit opportunities for women are covered by the Equal Credit Opportunity Act of 1974. So what will the Equal Rights Amendment do? It will abolish a woman's right to child support and alimony. It will allow homosexual marriages and probably child adoption by these people. It will make your daughters subject to the draft. It will, of course, do even more damage than this. Happy and well-adjusted women believe in laws which protect the family. Why should we lower ourselves to 'equal rights' when we already have the status of 'special priviledge'? Dedicated women libbers are waging a total assault on the family, on marriage and on children. They are anti-family, anti-children and pro-abortion. Many of them reject marriage and motherhood. 'l?mt's their priviledge, but let's not allow them to get away with pretending to speak for the rest of us. Let's not permit this minority to degrade the role that most women prefer. Sen. Neal Stafford and Pep. Pen Micheli are sponsoring bills to Rescind the ERA in Wyoming. Let your voice be heard. Contact the Senators and Representatives from your county, (Capitol Building, Cheyenne} and request that they vote to Rescind the Equal Rights Amendment. Time is short, so do it today!
