ERA hearing jam the galleries

RALEIGH-Hundreds of women of all
ages packed the-State Legislative Building
Thursday for round two in the battle over
ratification of the Equal Rights
The advocates outnumbered the
opponents by about three-to-one as they
filled both a 500-seat auditorium and
galleries of the House and Senate
chambers for the second, and possibly
last, public hearing.
The opponents paraded seven women
to the microphone, including Phyllis
Schlafly, a conservative republican from
Alton, 111., who initiated the national
movement against the amendment.
The advocates sent 10 persons to the
Schlafly set the tone for most of the
opponents when she argued that the
rights women wish to attain are
guaranteed already under civil rights and
equal employment laws.
But some of the rights women now
enjoy by virtue of their sex would be lost
if the ERA is ratified, said Schlafly.
Some of the areas where women would
suffer most, she said, would be in
susceptibility to the draft, lower Social
Security benefits, family support
responsibilities and loss of privacy in such
places as public restrooms and
In addition, she said, "The ERA will

Dollar takes market beating
The ailing US. dollar came under severe attack in the world's money markets
Thursday, forcing West Germany to buy a record $1.7 billion to avert the collapse of
the official exchange rate.
Japan also intervened with emergency purchases of $110 million to keep the dollar's
exchange rate at the agreed level of 301.10 yen. The Dutch Central Bank bought
dollars, but the US. currency received no government support and fell lower in
Brussels, Paris and Zurich. The dollar price of gold bullion inched steadily higher
almost everywhere - 14 cents in Frankfurt, 10 cents in London, 16 cents in Paris.
POW release deadline nears
The four warring parties in South Vietnam are hoping to meet a Monday deadline
for release of the f irst prisoners of war, but there still is no agreement on the date or
places of exchange, informed sources in Saigon said Thursday.
Sources close to the Joint Military Commission, composed of representatives of
North and South Vietnam, the United States and the Viet Cong, said the JMC still has
taken no action on setting up the prisoner exchange.
"Everyone is aware that this has to be done with 15 days after the cease-fire," the
source said. Sunday is the 15th day.

Gasoline shortages predicted
The heating oil shortage that has crippled much of New England and the Middle
West this winter could be followed by tight supplies of gasoline in the summer months,
oil executives warned Thursday.
Vice presidents of two major oil producers told a government hearing in Washington
that the industry had put so much of its refining ef effort into meeting die cold
weather demand for heating oil that production of gasoline had fallen behind schedule.
"It's going to be tough," said Terrence B. Redmond, vice president of Amoco Oil
Co. "We will wnter the summer season with 2-3 million barrels of gasoline less than
