A panel of women organizing for peace are moderated by Elsa Knight Thompson. They all received and responded to a form letter from Dagmar Wilson, urging them to spread the word to all of their contacts regarding disarmament. Frances Herring is the only participant identified by both first and last name. The other women on the panel are Mrs. Druckman, Mrs. Trowbridge, and Mrs. Temko, possibly Elizabeth (Becky) Temko, wife of architect Allan Temko. The panel discuss their grass-roots anti-nuclear movement and the upcoming November 1, 1961 "Strike for Peace" demonstration in the Bay Area.
