Fiancial,
labor woes
hitting Cellar

IN BRIEF

(Continued from Page 1)
"DENNIS WAS extraordinarily
skillful at helping people feel power-
ful," she said. "Both'the board and the
employees trusted him."
Much of the decision-making in the
store rested with the employees rather
than the management or the board of
directors. Webster, however, took
much of the responsibility for tying up
the loose ends in the store's day-to-day
operations.
By running the store in such a man-
ner, Webster was forced to work long,
hard hours, Dannemiller said. As a
result "he burned himself out."
WHEN THE BOARD went to recruit
managers, only one person wanted the
position-Tudor Bradley, who had been
the manager of a large department
store.
Bradley was the center of controver-
sy from the time he was hired. Last
week, the board forced him to resign.
"Tudor simply wasn't suited to this
store, whatsoever,"said Lu Bjorklund,
a four year employee. Bradley refused
comment.
"THE ONLY IMAGE he had was of a
hierarchical structure," Dannemiller
said. "But there was one major
problem with that-it was a radical
change in terms of (the store's)
philosophy."
"The employees are here because
they buy that philosophy; otherwise
they'd work at Ulrich's," she said.
' Because of the employee's discon-
tent, they joined the Industrial Workers
of World labor union. After a three-day
strike and several months of
negotiations, the employees signed a

contract in the fall of 1979.
THE CONTRACT changed the
Cellar's structure. It consisted of a
board of directors, which was made up
of seven students, three faculty mem-
bers-two union members were added.
But not everyone agrees with Dan-
nemiller's prognosis. Bjorklund said
that although the working atmosphere
has improved, the Cellar still has a long
way to go. She said the store has suf-
fered losses because of "incompetent
management." "The store could be run
much more effectively by the em-
ployees," she said.
Richard Barr, a first-year law
student and member of the board is not
as optimistic about the store's future as
Dannemiller and Sappington. He ex-
pects a loss between $10,000 and $40,000
this year.
One major obstacle he sees in U-
Cellar's future, is the renovations
taking place in the Union. The plans
call for moving the Cellar to the other
side of the basement. He is doubtful the
store can afford to pay for all of the
renovations itself.
Sappington, on the other hand, sees
the renovations as another way out of
the Cellar's financial problems.
If the store is moved, he said, there
will be more room to display additional
merchandise which could be profitable
for the store, Sappington said.
If U-Cellar cannot lift itself out of its
financial hole, it could close altogether
or be taken over by the Regents and
administrators.
"If all of that happens, I'm not going
to wait for us to go bankrupt before I go
screaming and yelling," Barr said. He
added that he would rather see the ad-
ministration run the store than for it to
close entirely.

Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Polish workers press
for five-day work week
WARSAW, Poland-An overwhelming majority of Polish workers defied
the government and stayed home from their jobs yesterday to press their
demand for a five-day workweek.
The independent Solidarity labor union said 80 percent of the nation's 12
million workers stayed off the job and in some areas, as many as 98 percent
did not turn up for work, crippling key industries.
Thegovernment, which has threatened to dock the pay of no-shows,
acknowledged around 50 percent of workers stayed at home and warned the
action increased tension in the country.
Polish state radio broadcast regional reports that appeared to confirm the
union's absentee estimates. Observers described media coverage of the
nationwide job action, which union leaders maintain is not a strike, as
relatively frank and extensive.
It was Solidarity's second Saturday protest against what it claims is the
government's failure to live up to promises made last year to institute a five-
day, 40-hour workweek.
17th name added to list
of missing, murdered children
ATLANTA-Police added a 17th name yesterday to the list of unsolved
murders and disappearances of black Atlanta children after a 15-year-old
boy found strangled in the suburbs.
The most recent victim was identified as Terry Pue, whose body was found
Friday about 25 miles south of Atlanta. He had not been reported missing by
his parents.
Of the 17 children who have disappeared over the past 18 months, 14 have
been found murdered. All have been black, and all but two have been boys.
Pue's body was discovered in suburban Conyers, miles from where the
other bodies had been found.
But his death was added to the caseload of the 35-member Atlanta police
task force investigating the slayings and disappearances because of
"similarities to other murdered Atlanta children," Rockdale-County Sheriff
Vic Davis said yesterday morning.
European Common Market
ends boycott of Iran
BRUSSELS, Belgium-The European Common Market formally ended its
economic boycott of Iran after the release of the American hostages last
week. But officials say an Iran-Iraq peace and a stable government in
Tehran are needed before all West European exporters will be eager to
resume trade with Iran.
"It depends on how much money Iran has to spend and how trustworthy
Iran will be for exporters," a Dutch Economics Ministry official said. "On
top of that, we don't really know what effect the war has had."
At Denmark's Federation of Industries, a spokesperson summed up the
prospects for Iran-West .Europe trade in three words: "No big expec-
tations."
After eight months of compliance with a U.S.-requested partial economic
boycott, the 10 Common Market countries dropped their ban on exports to
Iran last Tuesday, the moment the 52 hostages were released.
Islamic summit begins
TAIF, Saudi Arabia-Leaders of 37 Moslem nations and the Palestine
Liberation Organization converged on this resort city yesterday for their
third Islamic summit. But their hopes of negotiating an end to the Iran-Iraq
war were dashed by Iran's refusal to attend the talks.
Instead, the summit will focus on collective Moslem action against Israel,
sources in the 42-member Islamic conference said.
Conference sources said the Islamic nations had hoped to mediate the
four-month-old war on the northern part of the Persian Gulf. But Iran's
Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini said Friday that Iran would boycott the con-
ference because Iraqi President Saddam Hussein would be present.
Doonesbury's Uncle Duke
returns as 53rd hostage
FAIRWAY, Kan.-Uncle Duke, the hard-living, drug-taking counter-
culture hero of the comic strip "Doonesbury," is alive and well and probably
stoned somewhere in Wiesbaden, Germany.
Duke, the self-acclaimed ambassador with an affinity for white shark-skin
suits and cigarette holders, was last seen by Doonesbury readers on Sept. 7,
1979, facing an Iranian firing squal.
Doonesbury creator Garry Trudeau will be returning the irrepressible
Duke to his syndicated comic strip Monday in a three-week sequence. Duke,
characterized by Iranian dispatches as "the bald spy," will be the 53rd
American hostage.
