t He out there.
And according to our competitors, we're the cause of it.
It's true.'We have created complete havoc in the audio field. We have taken our 43-year expertise in high-
volume buying, low-discount pricing and high-volume selling that we're famous for in TV's and major ap-
pliances, and applied it to the world of audio. We're one of very few dealers (and we mean so few, that
you could probably count the number on one hand) in Michigan and Ohio who has enough capital to be in
the business. This allows us to pay every one of our bills ahead of the time they're due. The manufacturers
give us extra discounts to do this. We then own the merchandise for less - and we can sell it for less. That
is in addition to the special price consideration we receive from the manufacturers because of the huge
quantities we buy every month. Plus; every one of our customers gets our famous 30-day written low-price
guarantee which states that if you see the same item at any of our competitors anywhere in the area for
less, within 30 days of purchase, we'll refund the difference, plus 10% of the difference. You just can't go
wrong with a Highland price!
Our suppliers love us. Our customers love us. Our competitors hate us.
Listen: It's a jungle out there. Note to our competitors: If you can't stand the heat - get out of the kitchen.

the striker, identifying himself
only as Ray, said the offers
made by the University "just
weren't worth it.
"They claim they offered us
a ten per cent raise, but in re-
ality it was only six per cent,"
he added. "Hell, if they had of-
fered us ten per cent, we'd be
working now."
UNIVERSITY PERSONNEL
Director Wayne Douglas, re-
sponding to the charges, said:j
"I think, in fact I know . . .
that the University met with
the unions (Thursday)ralong
with a mediator. And after nine
to ten hours the mediator re-
commended that both parties
suspend negotiations because of
lack of progress.
"The University negotiators
stayed at the meeting . . . un-
til the UAW members had
left. We were available, we did
not walk out," he added.
"We never offered them a
ten per cent wage increase,"
Dougilas said, "and it was un-
reasonable of them to ask. We
can't give what we don't have."

the University's offer of a 5.25'
per cent raise to the clerical
workers. "How the hell can
they offer one local one thing
and gyp the other? They're
cheating, they're ripping the
supervisors off."I
Other strikers echoed his sen-
timents, explaining that money
was not the only issue. "We
report overtime each week just
for laughs," said one woman.,
"We never get paid time-and-a-'
half, even though we're made1
to work a minimum of forty
hours a week. Those overtime
hours include weekends and
nights."
The two locals have tried to
stop food delivery to the dormi-
tories. When the Teamsters who
deliver the food agreed to honor
the picket lines, the University
arranged for students to de-
liver it.
ONE STUDENT passenger in
a food delivery truck said,I

"Yes, we're delivering but
we're honoring picket line4."
However, the driver of the truck
indicated the opposite.
"We're just delivering food,
we're not honoring any picket
lines," said the driver. "We're
not talking to the press. If you
print anything, I'll dispute it."
"These negotiations have
been going on since October",
said Ray, "All they (the Uni-
versity) do is accuse us of being
money-hungry grabbers".
Members of the two locals
hope thatbthe strike will not
continue beyond the weekend,
but some are not optimistic.
"I'm hoping for a weekend
settlement", said one woman
striker. "Actually, praying is
more like it. But the Univer-
sity would like to see how long
they can wait us out".
"That's, ridiculous", respond-
ed Douglas when told of her
comment. "We didn't want this
strike in the first place."

Ann Arbor).
THE COMMITTEE was di-
rected to make its initial report
on the matter to the Board's
Ways and Means Committee on
April 14.
"You're studying every as-
pect of county government,"
said Stumbo, who proposed the
slate of committee members.
Members will study "the ques-
tion of an Elected County Exe-
cutive, an Appointed County
Executive, a County Manager,
and a Charter form of county
government, reviewing the pow-
ers and duties of each, and the
restructuring of county govern-
ment with the projected costs of
each form of government to es-
tablish a more efficient and ef-
fective county government," ac-
cording to the Budget Commit-
tee proposal.
THE PROPOSAL came about
after pasage of a 1974 Michigan
statute allowing for the restruc-
turing of county governments.
Commissioners are divided in
their opinions as to which form
of government would be the
most efficient - however, most
seem to feel some change is
necessary.
in the present system, accord-
ing to Stumbo, "It usually takes
months for even small requests
to be processed."
