Concelfolion Due To Short Notice Pittsburgh Press. Wed., May 1 2, 1976 3 v-- ) : , ' : ..SAfisSSs- C err) No CAP Hearing, Public Finds ON THE DOTTED LINE Employes of the Universal-Cyclops Specialty Steel Division in Bridgeville are signing up this week for federal compensation triggered by layoffs due to imports of foreign steel products. Melvin Gardner, center, who had been laid off for a year, and Joseph Russell, right, both members of United -Pre Photo by Andy Stornej Steel Workers Local 178, yesterday received instructions from Ed Dobis of the State Bureau of Employment Security. Although most of the 800 workers are now back on the job, they will receive an average of $2,500 in addition to unemployment compensation. Most checks will begin arriving within two weeks. Dozens of persons traveled Down town last night for a Community Action Pittsburgh (CAP) public hearing that wasn't. The hearing had been canceled late Monday after CAP Executive Director Charles Mikell admitted he had failed to fulfill a 10-day public notice requirement. He said he bad been unaware of the regulation and called bis error "just one of those things." Word of the last-minute cancellation, however, failed to reach many North Side residents who had learned of the planned hearing through community leaflets or word-of-mouth. The hearing was requested by a condition of North Side residents unhappy with CAP's arm in their community, the North Side Committee on Human Resources. The CAP directors proceeded with their regular business meeting last night and Leonard Sharon, attorney for the protesting North Siders, blamed the cancellation on "the incompetence of the board. . ' ' I would hope this time that the (proper) notice is given out," he said. Sharon objected to a statement from CAP Chairman Dazzella Garner that speakers at the May 27 hearing will be limited to 15 minutes each, saying the matter "will be negotiated and is not determined yet." He later said federal regulations High School Papers Compete The top student reporters and high school newspapers will be named during t h e Duquesne University Scholastic Press Association competition May 22 at Maurice Falk Lecture Hall.

Mikell last week admitted all of the items sought by the group were public information, but said the requests were tying up his staff. ' " He said he is willing to work out some procedure with the North Siders for supplying data on such things as salaries and program costs. The residents claim, however, that Mikell is stalling. Negro Women Set Workshop The National Council of Negro Women, Pittsburgh Section, will hold its third annual workshop from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at Chatham Center, Uptown. "Health Services for the Survival of the Black Community" will be discussed and a daily care program will be provided. 1 Restaurant Battle Heats Up By ROBERT McHUGH How does the spokesman for an apparently illegal fast-food store in the East End complain that another fast-food operation next door would be detrimental to the neighborhood? Attorney William H. Schorling did it yesterday with a few jokes, lots of smiling and a four-page legal memo presented to the City Planning Commission. Schorling represents KFC Management Co., parent firm for both Kentucky Fried Chicken and H. Salt Fish and Chips franchises and owner of a property at 5838 Baum Blvd. KFC was in the process of building an H. Salt store on the lot last month when it was halted by a preliminary injunction issued by Common Pleas Court Judge Frederic G. Weir. The judge ruled the building violated a deed restric-1 1 0 n prohibiting structures within 30 feet of the sidewalk. Weir acted on a complaint from Wendy's Old Fashioned Hamburgers, a nationwide chain which hopes to provide competition to the seafood outlet. Wendy's wants to build a 92-seat eatery with 40 parking stalls on an adjacent strip of land with access to both Baum Boulevard and Centre Avenue. The difference Is the H. Salt property is zoned for commercial use, the Wendy's lot zoned for high-density residential. So yesterday Wendy's representatives appeared before the planning board to request a zone change to permit construction. And KFC had a chance to get even by arguing that Wendy's would adversely alter the character of the neighborhood. "Clearly, the way to prevent the outflow of residents (from the city) is to provide more and better residential areas as well as preserving the character of existing residential areas," Schorling wrote in his memo. He also argued the Wendy's proposal "will Impair the attractive characteristics of the block" containing both properties. Wendy's officials, on the other hand, pointed out that their property Is surrounded primarily by commer cial and institutional uses and argued that the present residential designation is inappropriate. " Pastors of the First United Methodist Church and the Albright United Methodist Church, located in the block as the two fast-food properties, both opposed Wendy's plan. The commission is expected to act on the zone change request within a month. Meanwhile, Schorling testified even if Weir's order is made permanent at a future hearing and the present incomplete structure must be demolished, an H. Salt restaurant still will go up on the site. "There will be a building there, whether we have to move it (back from the sidewalk) or not," he said.
