afternoon. The picket line was set up to protest the firing of the assistant manager
and to call for higher wages. (Staff photo by John Gellman)
A group of picket ers marched in front
of Harry's Restaurant during lunch and
supper hours Wednesday in protest of the
firing of the assistant manager and of
wages paid Waiters.
Jerry Robinson, who has worked at
Harry's for the past year and has been
assistant manager for the past several
months, claimed he was fired Tuesday
night for refusing induction into the
armed forces last month.
Ralph Macklin, owner of Harry's and
Der Deli in Beech Mountain, denied
"That is completely without
foundation," Macklin said. "Jerry knows
why he was fired, and it has nothing to
do with his refusal to go into the service."
On the charges of unfair wages,
Macklin said his pay scale was "well
within the standards of the State of

coordinators of the strike, said they plan
to continue their picket lines today and

now, the president has to learn all over

The candidate pointed out, 'There are
a great many things that need to be
changed that everyone knows aobut. But
there are also a great number of other
problems that need to be corrected which
are just as important but don't get as
One of the unnoticed problems he
.noted is the lack of fire alarms in men's
dorms. He also added the fire
extinguishers available are not workable
for electrical fires.
"They charge S20 for having a hot
plate in a dorm room because it might
start an electrical fire, but they don't
have the adequate means to put out the
fire it might create."
Tripodi proposed a new plan to let
students decide what fees they will or will
not pay. 'They could have a plan
whereby students would pay all fees
unless they specifically asked not to pay
for a certain fee, like The Daily Tar
Heel or athletic fees.
"Some of the fees, like the one for the
hot plate, could be used for
improvements or protection," he added.
The presidential candidate said he
would like to find out through
referendums how students feel about
student fees and to have the money put
where it would do the most good.
"Students are left out of the decisions,
but the students, if they use it, have the
power to make changes."

Morris said prospects for winning the
dispute are "excellent. I think we can
shut down the place," he said.
Macklin said only two waiters had quit

the picketers were not waiters.
