The file review system, which
officially expired last March, was
termed "not an effective mechan-

files of women employes were
not reviewed by the University
unless their predicted salary was
10 per cent or more above their

"A treat for armchair detectives. I had fun with it, and I
think you will too. It reminds me of those good old-fashioned
whodunits - the dialogue is sharp, clever and pungent. It's
mystery, mayhem and high camp on the high seas.
-Bob Salmaggi, Group W (WINS)

intricacy of Christie's 'Ten Little Indians'"

flashy, sophisticated and demanding.
This crackling mystery is bang-up
entertainment! It is ten times better
than 'Sleuth'."-Liz Smith, Cosmopolitan

whodunit fans wringing their hands
with glee! Superb performances."
-Jeffrey Lyons, WPIX-TV

each closeup of a doorknob the ten-
