Bush gains; Kemp, Hart
may drop out of race
By the Associated Press
Republican resistance to Vice
President George Bush's bid for the
White House began crumbling
yesterday as the impact of his
fabulous Super Tuesday showing
sank in. Democrats Michael
Dukakis, Albert Gore and Jesse
Jackson savored their own successes
while aiming for next week's
showdown in Illinois.
Rep. Jack Kemp (R-New York)
scheduled a news conference for
Tuesday, and sources said he would
withdraw from the race. Similar
rumors surrounded the campaign of
Colorado Senator Gary Hart, who
put his all travel plans on hold and
Pat Robertson, who talked in terms
of expanding his support for a
campaign rerun in 1992.
Senator Dole (R-Kansas) awoke
to a campaign in shambles after
losing all 17 Super Tuesday states

Former president Jimmy Carter,
speaking in Rochester, Mich., said
he did not believe Bush would be a
formidable candidate. "As a
Democrat, I am relieved by the fact
that Bush will be the (Republican)
nominee," Carter said. The former
president added he "was surprised at
how well" Senator Gore (D-Tenn.)
did, and was most surprised "at the

supporters. Super Tuesday exit

Union protests z
By JIM PONIEWOZIK
A group of about 25 University workers protesting
alleged mistreatment of Building Services employees
by management picketed the University Plant Building
Services offices yesterday.
The picketers demanded, among other things, repar-
ations for two workers who they say were unfairly
treated by supervisors.
The picket was sponsored by American Federation
of State, County and Municipal Employees
(AFSCME) local 1583, which represents custodians in
the University's Building Services department. Several
workers in the department have recently complained of
harassment by supervisors and have claimed that some
of the alleged incidents of harassment were racially
"I'm fed up with all the activities going on in man-
agement... the scare tactics, the racism, and sexism,"
said custodian Eric Stevens, one of several Building
Services employees at the picket.
