Uinioni and contract ors' repre-
sentatives walked out when tho
Coalition proposed a short. ap-
prenticeship plan under Coali-
tion control.
And white construction work-
ers controlled the Chicago hear-
in gs on job discrimination
against Negroes, called by Amr-
thur A. Fletcher, assistant see-
retary of labor, in late Septem-
ber.
By the hundreds, onion crafts-
nien blocked the entrance to the
federal building, overfilled the
hearing room, jostled and even
roughed up Negroes trying to
get in, The hearing had to be
postponed a day and moved to
another site.
After two days of hearings,
Fletcher said that. if Chicago
doesn't come tip with an ac-
ceptable plan, he would try to
tap a federal appropriation to
set up a joint government-Coali-
tion training and employment
p~rogram.
Philadelphia, too, has run the

gamut--demonistratiotns by Ne-
groes forcing a two-day stop)-
page of 10 major construction
projects, counter - demonstra-
tions and counter-demands by
white workers, and conferences
that broke off iii deadlock. Black
leaders hint. that the talks may
resume.
Negro militant. ini Philadel-
phia walked out, protesting that
although the population is 23
per cent black, only 212 Negroes
are among the 27,000 skilled
tradesmen in the area.
White construction workers
stormed Pittsburgh's City Hall,
demanding $9.3 million conpen-
sation for wages lost during the
shutdowns.
Conferences among represen-
tatives of the Construction Coa-
lition, the builders and the un-
ions got. nowhere. Industry and
union spokesmen rejected~ Ne-
groes' demands for 2,500 more
jobs in three to five years, and
last. week broke off negotiations.
In Los Angeles black spokes-
men, threatening picketing,

black workers?

nave refused to accept the Com-
munity Redevelopment Agency's
assurance that Negroes are get-
ting jobs on city projects.
Al Bailey, head of the Central
Welfare Council, said, "It is, a
proven fact that 13 skilled jobs
have no black Americans work-
ing on them in the Hoover Pro-
ject, an urban renewal develop-
ment near the University of
Southern California."
City Councilman Billy Malls,
a Negro, said, "Without ques-
tion there is discrimination in
the building industry, and we
are going to do something
about it."

Graduate School of Business
will be on campus
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1(1, 1969 (9-5)

Chicago's strong faculty emphasizes teaching and
research in the basic disciplines that underlie mian-
a gement. Interdisciplinary work involving other
areas of the University is stressed.
Business studies at Chicago gain from the Uni-
versity's setting in one of the world's great centers
of commerce and industry:
An outstanding placement program serves gradu-
ates and those seeking summer inltern)ships inidway
through their M.B.A. studies.
