FEPC Considers Hazen Complaint

Massachusetts' Fair Employment Practices Committee is studying charges of job discrimination at Hazen's Restaurant filed by two undergraduates Tuesday.

The students, Chao-chu Chi '52 and Thomas L. Roberts '50 claim that Hazen's refused them jobs and later hired white students to fill the same positions. Their racial origins, they assert, were the cause of their failure to get the jobs.

Hazen's owner, John Whouley, has denied that he discriminated unfairly.

A member of the Harvard-Radcliffe Young Progressives accompanied Chi and Roberts in their three-hour long conference with FEPC representatives. Neither Chi nor Roberts belong to HYP, which told the CRIMSON it would make no further move on the case until the FEPC has had a chance to act.
