Perhaps because of the casual
attitude most students h a v e
toward fire safety, there h as
been substantial fire damage in
the dorms. Two years ago, a
fire caused $30,000 worth of
damage to Mary Markley, ac-
cording to Davids.
D~avids urges more programs
to make students aware of fire
safety procedures. "You're talk-

in reference to the darms. "This
is something that can"t be over-

are, inevitably, occasiovs when
a fire does occur. In those
cases, when it is too late to pre-
vent a fire, the job must turn
to stopping it.
Davids praised the Univer-
sity's fire emergency system as.
"the best in the world."
When an emergency occurs,
students can dial "123" to reach
a switchboard at the Univer-
sity's Safety Departmeut. From
there, officials can quickt; use
any of three direct ines to the
fire department, police depar--

about a particular problem."
HESS suggested Carroll pre-
sent his grievances to him in
Hess's office-as per the griev-
ance procedure-on the after-
noon of May 6 or morning of
May 7.
Carroll said he was unsure
whether meeting with Hess was
the correct next step since Hess
was named in the grievance. He
did not contact Hess regarding
their meeting to discuss the
grievances that day or the next.
The next day, May 6, Carroll
received the discharge letter,
effective immediately.
The reasons given for his dis-
charge are: absence without
prior authorization at two sepa-
rate times. aending a final sum-
mary of work to a sponsor with-
out approval, and failure to gen-
erate research funding.
The Statue of Liberty was a
gift from the French to the
Americans. Designed by Fred-
eric Auguste Bartholdi, its true
name is "Liberty Enlightening
the World."

CARROLL answered t h e s e
c h a r g e s yesterday claiming
other researchers are allowed to
take vacafions without super-
visory permission by simply
notifying the group secretary.
He said it also is standard pro-
cedure to send copies of findings
to sponsors.
Responding to the failure to
generate funding charge, Car-
roll said O'Day prohibited him
from communicating with his
contacts in the State and Fed-
eral agencies upon his return
to the H.S.R.I. last fall. Carroll
said these connections would
have been primary sources of
additional funding.

The union members contended
in their grievance that: 1) the
Department had been continual-
lv hostile toward union mem-
bers, 2) the appointments vio-
lated the V"settlement and no
reorisals memorandum of un-
derstanding of the University-
CEO contract," and 3) the
tnion had been given conflict-
ing explanations regarding the
criteria for summer term em-
IN RESPONSE, the depart-
ment claimed that: 1) its senti-
ment toward striking TA's re-
flected concern toward students,
2) the selection criteria took
several different factors into
consideration and were inten-
tionally kept under wraps "to
minimize any. hard feelings
which could have otherwise oc-
c'rred," 3) GEO membership
was not a consideration in its
February deliberations over ap-
Iointments, 4) that the depart-
ment had no way of knowing
who was a union member prior
to the GEO strike, and 5) dis-
crimination based on union ac-
tivity "was obviously not a fac-
tor since many of the grievants
have been reemployed" for the
fall of 1975.
But the department could pro-
vide no dated evidence proving
that a list of summer appoint-

ments had been selected prior
to the GEO strike.
Schober said that since the
appointments were not formally
announced until ten days after
the start of the GEO strike, "it
would have been possible" for
the department to determine
who the union members were,
and to discriminate against
them on that basis.
IN HIS finding of no contract
violations on the part of the de-
partment, Forsyth said that the
Spring - Summer appointments
were made prior to the GEO
settlement and the signing of
the "no reprisals" memo, thus,
no violation occurred.
The step 3 findings also state
that "there are no contractual
obligations for an employing
unit to make its selection cri-
teria known." They recommend,
however, that the department
clearly state its selection poli-
cies "in the interest of good
