PA6£ *-CHILLlCOTHE CONSTITUTION-TRIBUNE, TUESDAY, NOV. 19, 1974 Sees Missouri approval soon— Elections rally hopes of ERA supporters By PEGGY SIMPSON AsaoclatedPress Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Supporters of the Equal Rights Amendment say the recent state legislative elections have brightened the chances that five more states will ratify ERA, thus making it part of the Constitution. The Constitution requires approval by 38 states, and 33 states previously have approved the amendment. The ERA would prohibit discrimination based on sex. The new optimism among ERA supporters represents a turnaround from the pessimism expressed last summer at a meeting of the National Women's Political Caucus. Mary Brooks, ERA coordinator for the League of Women Voters, and Pat Keefer of Common Cause had told the caucus that they doubted the ERA would be approved by more than two or three more states this spring. But the elections changed that forecast. "I don't know of a state where we haven't picked up pro-ERA strength," said Ms. Brooks, who prefers the designation Ms. The defeat of anti-ERA incumbents was particularly noticeable in such states as Missouri, Florida, Arizona and South Carolina, she said. In some contests, the victors were women challenging anti- ERA office holders. In other cases, the winners were men who had the backing of the informal ERA lobby, consisting of the League, the National Women's Political Caucus, Common Cause, the National Organization for Women, the Business and Professional Women and others. "This will have a trerm ndous effect on the lobbying power of the women's groups," s« ; d Ms. Brooks. "Last year we w jren't taken seriously. This year we damn well are going to be." Diane Saulter of Common Cause said pro-ERA candidates won in the overwhelming majority of races where the ERA was a central issue. This year's elections were the first to test the political potency of the ERA issue. "I will be amazed if Illinois, North Dakota, and Missouri don't ratify it next year," Ms. Brooks said. "North Carolina, Oklahoma and Nevada have very good chances. Florida, Indiana and Arizona are going to have some real battles but they have a chance to ratify, too." Phyllis.Schlafly, the Alton, 111., crusader against the ERA, denied there had been any rout of her supporters from statehouses. High court denies hearing on Jaycees admitting women WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court today refused to hear arguments that Junior Chamber of Commerce membership should be opened to women because the organization receives federal financial support. The court over the dissent of Justice William 0. Douglas, declined to consider appeals of Jaycee chapters in Rochester, N.Y., and Philadelphia.

The U.S. Circuit Court in Denver ordered their lawsuits dismissed, upholding a decision by U.S. District Judge Luther Bohanon of Tulsa, Okla., who said the constitutional issues raised were "totally lacking in substance." In seeking review by the Supreme Court, the ousted chapters said the federal govern- menthas violated constitutional rights of female applicants for membership by "furnishing multimillion-dollar grants in aid, contracts, financial assistance and tax benefits to the Jaycee organization." They said that as of December 1972, the 300,000-member organization depended upon the federal government for nearly 40 per cent of its $2.5-million budget. The money is in the form of grants and contracts for projects, which the Jaycees carry on in prison reform, job placement, drug abuse education, low-income housing and other fields. The United States Jaycees limit membership in their approximately 6,000 local chapters to males between the ages of 18 and 36. Dollar to new low at Frankfurt FRANKFURT, West Germany (AP) — The dollar dropped to a new low on the Frankfurt foreign currency market today, and dealers said they could not explain the continuing downward trend.

The dollar opened at 2.635 Swiss francs in interbank trading, down from 2.6825 late Friday. Gold opened in Zurich at $192 an ounce, up $3.25 from Friday's closing.
