Students Find Partially Eaten Chicken Restaurant Receives Complaint By Benjamin T. Forbes Two A&T students reportedly received unsanitary service from a quick-service restaurant late Monday. Calvin Jackson stated that he and a friend, Donell Kennedy, bought a "snak pack" of chicken from Robbins Kentucky Fried Chicken on Bessemer Avenue. After receiving the chicken, Jackson said he returned to his car and opened the box. He then found a partially eaten piece of chicken along with two uneaten pieces. Jackson said he returned to the restaurant to get a refund or another order. The manager, Ceasar Tucker, according to Jackson, then threatened him with bodily harm. Tuesday morning, Jackson said he contacted the Greensboro Health Service. He said he was given the "run-around" treatment. Later he was told lo speak with officials at the Environmental Protection Agency. Along with Lawrence Munson, director of food services, Jackson said they went back to see Tucker to get an explanation. Munson said that Tucker did not want to discuss the matter in his presence but wanted to take Jackson in the back of the building to discuss the issue. «. Thinking that violent actions would erupt, Munson stated that, if Jackson went, he would go too. Munson and Jackson then left the eating establishment . When contacted by The Register, Tucker stated that there were many discrepancies in Jackson's story. He first said that at least a half hour elapsed before Jackson returned with the chicken. Continuing he said he did not give Jackson the refund because, at that time of the night, the , daily report had been made and that he could not give back Jackson's refund at that time. When asked if he would give Jackson a refund if he came back, he stated, "I will give the boy his refund." Munson said that there have' been instances where workerswere seen eating in the cooking area. Munson indicated that such practices are not sanitary. Jackson- said that he feels students should boycott this particular Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise, to prevent further incidents which might occur. By Maxine McNeill I The boycotting of the Tribunal is a very real and serious happening. Steve Allen, assistant to SGA president, Ted Mangum, said that Mangum called the boycott because the Tribunal wasn't felt to be fair. He said that the boycott is to last until the standard procedures are emphasized so that students can get fair trials. Allen continued, "Ted said that he cannot go back and asked students not to go until some changes have been made." Allen also said that, since the student handbook and the constitution are not in agreement with each other, things are not clear. He said because of that the students on the Tribunal don't know what's going on. AUen also said there is no set procedure for the operation ofthe courts. Allen said that, because ofthe condition of the student court, an alternate was asked for. He said that an Appeals Board was suggested and instituted by Dr. J. E. Marshall, vice chancellor for student affairs. "A meeting of this Appeals Board should be held probably sometime next week to resolve differences," added Allen. He also said that Dr. Marshall gave Ted Mangum his permission to nominate five students to the Board. When asked if he thought the court procedures were better at the last trials, Alien said that naturally they would be after the meeting with Dr. Marshall but it is not known whether or not the students will continue to receive a fair trial.
