Description: In this memorandum, dated June 20, 1969, University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) Chancellor James Sharbrough Ferguson expresses concern to Dean Thomas J.G. Smyth that no real open bidding seems to have occurred with respect to UNCG's food service contract with ARA Slater. Ferguson mentions the dissatisfaction many students have expressed with ARA Slater and warns that there will be criticism of the bidding process. He also asks that Smyth do anything possible to open up the bidding process. This follows the food workers' strike that took place at UNCG from March 27 to April 2, 1969 and was directed against ARA Slater. A second page of the memorandum, apparently concerning student fees, seems to missing from the file.
