"In the past managers tended to make decisions on cronyism, on the color of a person s skin, on sex. We say that in doing so, they' have passed over some very good people for key positions and left themselves open to rather costly lawsuits. So far, she said, Boomerang has worked nationwide with such busi ness giants as Chase Manhattan Bank, U.S. Steel, Ralston-Pnrina and Coca-Cola as well as the De partments of Labor and Defense in the federal government to recruit qualified minority employees. The message to all the clients is the same, as spelled out in Boomerang’s introductory brochure: “Everything your attorneys, executives and personnel people know about EEO isn’t worth a hill of beans unless that knowledge is shared, understood and applied by every manager and supervisor — from first line on up. Boomerang uses brief films to get its point across. Each vignette de picts a problem that could mush room into a discrimination suit or other problems within the company. A pregnant woman wonders about the real reason she is being fired. A black man demands to know why his police record was an issue in his job interview while it was not taken into account when a white man was hired. An attractive woman says complaints from the wives of male co-workers are holding her back. The situations happen every day, Hunter said, and business execu tives must cope with them in the right way if they don’t want their policies to boomerang in the form of legal action. land Col 97,808 to itudents to t ruction »l eceive a se.

BIG Draft beer 25C SCREEN!!!Highballs 50c RHA seeks to host convention in 1980 By PAT DAVIDSON Battalion Reporter The Residence Hall Association at Texas A&M University is seeking to host the National Association of Colleges and Universities confer ence in May 1980. Nancy Nelson, National Communications Chairman for the local RHA, said the purpose of the national conference is to help RHAs around the country share and strengthen their programs. Nelson said delegates from Texas A&M have attended conventions on other campuses, but that A&M has never hosted the convention. Residence halls at Texas A&M regularly sponsor educational ac tivities as well as social events for dorm students. The RHA serves as a link between dorm residents and the administrative officials of the University. Right now, an executive-type committee is working on the project, Nelson said. It will establish the basic groundwork and coordinate support in the areas of housing, food services, and administration for the convention, she said. A committee of mostly freshman and sopho more students will he selected to help, since they are the ones that will be hosting the convention. Plans for the convention must lie organized and printed by March so that they can he submitted to the NACURH when it meets in May, Nelson said. The main reason A&M wants to host the convention. Nelson said, is to share ideas and show other groups that the RHA can work. We definitely have one of the top four organizations in the nation,” Lynne Andrus, RHA president, said.
