"WHEN YOU get four or five
guys in a group of 70 or 80 girls,
they treat you like a brother
and look out after you , . . it's
kind of neat," he added.
A former Michigan Bell op-
erator, Ken Bailey, found it
"surprisingly easy" to land his
job and was probably too read-
ily accepted.
"A business man would call
in and still say 'How ya doing
ma'am'-the same thing he'd
been saying for years," said
Bailey, who now works as a

BUT FOR others there have
been those awkward moments
like when a woman walked into
the office and said to Nuismer,
"Why aren't you out shovelling
or lifting bales?"
Such incidents, however, are
taken with a grain of salt and
seem to be rare.
"It depends on you-if you
feel self conscious," says Rudy
Woods, a nurse at the Univer-
sity Hospital's Burn Clinic. "It's
a two way street. If you're sure
of yourself then they have no

qualms."
ACCORDING to Ken Bailey's
supervisor, Henry Kenworthy,
Michigan Bell is engaged in an
active campaign to recruit men
as operators and service repre-
sentatives. T he company is
working under an agreement
with the Equal Employment Op-
portunity Commission (EEOC)
to reach "certain levels" in em-
ployment, eventually resembling,
the profile of the population.
On the other hand, the Uni-
versity and St. Joseph's Hos-
pital do not have similar plans
but claim they willingly hire
the few men who do apply to
be secretaries or nurses.

t "EVEN WITH roller skates I
couldn't get that far," she
lamented.
The closing of the store is just
part of a massive "re-develop-
ment program" in which A&P
has closed over 1200 of its
branch markets in the past six
months, including nearly 65 in
Michigan. An A&P spokesperson
at their corporate headquarters
in Patterson, New Jersey said
yesterday that more than 200
additional closings are expect-
ed. A supermarket industry
source in New York has indi-
cated that A&P brought its cur-
rent crisis upon itself through
sloppy management.
"They've lost an awful lot of
money," said the source, who
works for a trade publication.
"They have been a poorly man-
aged firm for a long time. They

EARLIER this year, A&P
commissioned a massive com-
puter study of all its stores, to
determine which ones could not
be profitably operated. The
study indicated that it was not
worth A&P's corporate while to
supply smaller stores like the
one on Huron.
Bob Taylor would have been
working at the Huron A&P for
24 years this March, had the
store not folded. He said he held
no bitterness toward the com-
pany.
"I would like to see the store
stay where it is," he said,
methodically placing groceries
into the customer's bags. "But
A&P has been good to me. I'll
miss the older customers you
get to see year after year. It's
a shame, because it gets to be
a way of life."
