Hunter said in an interview.
"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

shared, understood and applied by

Boomerang uses brief films to get
its point across. Each vignette de

other problems within the company.
A pregnant woman wonders about

black man demands to know why his
police record was an issue in his job

complaints from the wives of male
co-workers are holding her back.

Hunter said, and business execu
tives must cope with them in the
right way if they don’t want their

RHA seeks to host
convention in 1980
By PAT DAVIDSON
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.

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
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,
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. "In fact, we are the best.
