... .. ..

Most people enter Chances
Are by the front door. The bar
is shaped somewhat like a the-
ater, with tiers on the sscond
story overlooking the dance
area at the center of the ground
floor. A spiral staircase leads
to the second floor from close
to the front door,. Should a fire
occur, not only would a crush
ensue at the door, but the spiral
staircase could also constitute
a trap.
Moreover, the bar violates the
city's fire exit requirements on
several counts. The fire code
states, "No exit door shall be
locked, bolted or otherwise fast-
ened by any means so that the
door cannot be opened from the
inside."
ONE CHANCES ARE exit
door is blocked by a potted
palm. When informed of the
violation, bar officials said they
would replace the plant with a
human exit-watcher.
Chances Are does have four
other doors leading out the back.
One of these was blocked by a
chair in the first four weeks
the bar was open, in clear viola-
tion of the fire code. An alarm-
has since been installed that
will sound if the door is opened.
On many occasions in Chances
Are it is difficult to walk down
aisles leading to exits. The fire

FIRE MARSHAL Lee states
that this issue is complicated
because "once the patrons get
a few beers under their belts,
there's not much you can do."
The most uniformly violated
part of the fire code is the sec-
tion which requires that signs
be posted stating the maximum
occupancy allowed. Not one lo-
cal bar surveyed had these signs
posted.
Another problematic factor at
Chances Are is the noise level.
Although noise is not limited -by
law, it would be difficult to hear
a fire alarm while a band was
playing at the volume permitted
in the bar.
CITY OFFICIALS claim that
a fire like the one at Gulliver's
"would be most unexpected."
"However, it would be foolish
to say it couldn't happen," states
Ben Zahn, deputy fire inspector.
He explains that due to the
city's growth, officials cannot
keep up with the number of re-
quired inspections. He says an
attempt is made to inspect every
commercial building once a
year.
Fire officials indicate they
will issue tickets if any viola-
tions are found at Chances Are
but say a judge must determine
penalties.

Hart supports Eckstein

(Continued from Page 1)
Party, said he will devise "some
way to trace the certificates"
so that abuses won't occur.
AT THE END of the confer-
ence, Hart discussed whether he
will vote to confirm vice presi-
dent-designate Nelson Rockefel-
ler.
' I would like to hear what
the committee has to say about
the gifts," he said. Rockefeller
has made numerous monetary
gifts to high public officials,
one of which was to Secretary of
State Henry Kissinger.
"I wonder whether someone
with lots of private power
should be in a position with
lots of public power," Hart

added.
HE AND ECKSTEIN were
then treated to a roast beef din-
ner in the East Quad cafeteria.
Each of them fielded questions
and talked to the overwhelming-
ly enthusiastic crowd. One elder-
ly cafeteria worker told Hart
that his social security bene-
fits had not kept up with infla-
tion.
The two politicians finished
their stay in the dorm with a
door-to-door campaign. Although
many students were not in their
rooms, the ones that were home
got to know who their U.S. Sen-
ator was and something about
a candidate for the state senate.
