mversSfly coettiiraes with response to officers' grievances
By KIMBERLY EDENS
Assistant University Editor .
The UNC police department com
pleted the first phase of its response
to 12 officers' grievances Friday by
announcing the names of the two
officers promoted to permanent
positions as majors.
The grievances were filed in protest
of the hiring and promotion proce
dures used during a June departmen
tal reorganization. The officers
claimed that they weren't notified of
the open positions, so they didn't have
a fair chance to apply for the pro
motions. They have since gone to the
third step of the University's grie
In response to the second step of
the grievance procedure, the depart
ment proposed the reopening of six
of the 12 temporary positions
awarded in June. The two majors
were the first positions to reopen.
Robert Sherman, UNC director of
security services, said Sunday that the
same officers promoted to the posi
tion of major in June were chosen
to fill the two reopened permanent
positions of major. The officers are
Maj. Robert Porreca and Maj.
One other officer applied for the
position, Sherman said.
The second shift supervisor and
assistant supervisor are the next two
positions to be posted for application,
The selection process for all six new
positions involves a special advisory
panel, which is reviewing the appli
cations, conducting interviews and
making recommendations to Sher
man. Sherman then reviews the
panel's recommendations and gives
his decision to the personnel depart
ment, which makes the final selection.
This process will be used to fill the
remaining new positions.
The protesting officers said they are
not satisfied with the department's
response and will continue to the
third step of the grievance process.
That step consists of a meeting among
officers, their lawyer, representatives
of the employee relations department
and a chancellor's committee. The
committee makes a recommendation
to the chancellor, and he makes the
This is the last step of the grievance
process decided within the University.
The fourth step takes the grievance
process to the state personnel office.
The officers said they are appealing
the department's response to their
second-step grievance because their
request that all 12 temporary posi
tions be reopened and the previous
six temporary promotions be res
cinded was not granted.
Officer Keith Edwards said the
department is in violation of the
University's grievance procedure
because it has continued with the
response to the second-step griev
ance, even though the officers rejected
"If something is on appeal,"
Edwards said, "everything should
stand still until the whole thing is over
The department is ignoring the
officers' case by going through with
the proposal, she said.
"They're going on just like we dont
exist," Edwards said. "The whole
thing is just a sham."

UNC field hockey players rejoice after their 5-0 trouncing of Maryland in the ACC championship game
Fieldl hocMey takes ACC title
lo woniit off Maryland
By STEPHEN GILES
War. Anytime you get the No. 1 and
No. 2 teams in the nation on the same field,
that is usually the result. Sunday afternoon
on AstroTurf Field, it wasnt.
The top-ranked UNC field hockey team
met second-ranked Maryland for the ACC
championship in what was supposed to be
a close game. But a pumped-up Tar Heel
squad rolled to a 5-6 victory to capture
the ACC championship and avenge its only
loss this season, a 2-1 setback nearly a
month ago in College Park, Md.
UNC improved to 16-1 while Maryland
fell to 12.
"It was one of those matches where two
pretty evenly talented teams fought it out,
and they knocked in two goals while we
could only knock in one," Tar Heel coach
Karen Shelton said of the first meeting.
But Sunday, UNC was not to be denied.
"We took Maryland too lightly last
time," senior midfielder Lori Bruney said.
"This time we were determined to take
control and put more pressure on them."
The match opened up with incredible
intensity and characteristic rough play by
both teams. As the first half began to wind
down, the relentless Tar Heel offense
started to take control with continuous j
attacks upon the Maryland goal.
Finally, with 4:31 left in the first half,
UNC broke the ice. Freshman forward;
Laurel Hershey scored what would turn:
out to be the winning goal. '
From that point until the end of the first'
half, the Tar Heels took complete control,1
keeping almost all of the action at the
Maryland end of the field. This barrage
resulted in another score with 1:14 left
when senior midfielder Betsy Gillespie
scored on a penalty corner off assists from
Bruney and Jennifer Anderson. :r ;
The Tar Heels opened the second half
with a vengeance, striking quickly when
senior forward Maryellen Falcone netted
the team's third goal only five minutes into
; Outstanding defense ensued as UNC
j thwarted every Maryland scoring oppor
f tunity. Junior backer Tracey Yurgin and
freshman goalkeeper Evelien Spee stood
I out as the Heels turned back what would
turn out to be the only threatening rush-on-goal
by Maryland, midway through the
Another score by the Tar Heels came
with 15:44 left in the match, when Betsy
Gillespie dealt an assist to junior forward
Anderson for the goal.
Junior forward Sharon Ross closed out
the scoring for the day with 10:53 left when
she waded in and applied the icing to the
UNC victory cake.
Refusing to let down despite the lopsided
score, the Tar Heels maintained the
shutout with more incredible defensive
work down the stretch.
"We couldn't have played much better
today," Bruney said. "We were really ready

Student leaders announced Friday their
candidate endorsements for. Chapel Hill
mayor and town council, supporting one of
the-twa UNC students running for council.
They endorsed senior Rob Friedman for
council, but not junior Charles Balan.
Members of Student Government, Student
Congress, the Residence Hall Association,
Students for Educational Access and the
Graduate and Professional Student Federa
tion attended candidate forums and organized
the endorsement process. ...
The group also endorsed Nancy Preston,
Bill Thorpe and James Wallace for council,
and Jonathan Howes for mayor.
The endorsements were based on candi
dates' knowledge of student concerns and
issues, as well as their open-mindedness.
Chapel Hill is not just a town, said Student
Body President Brian Bailey, but a University
town with two components, the University
and the community. The candidates should
listen to the views of both components.
Another quality the candidates should have
is creativity. "True leadership requires
thinking ahead, planning for the future and
maintaining a realistic attitude while having
idealistic visions," Bailey said.
At a press conference Friday, Bailey said
Friedman can be. considered more than just
a student candidate, although he could give
the council a student perspective.
Friedman understands the issues important
to the community, Bailey said, as well as those
important to the University.
Balan, who is also running for council, was
not endorsed by student leaders. "Charles did
a really good job," Bailey said. But his
campaign started late and he didn't have a
firm grasp on the issues Student Government
The students endorsed Preston for council
because of her experience and open
mindedness. Preston is willing to listen to
anyone, Bailey said.
"Contrary to popular opinion, we are not
looking for someone who will vote yes' to

Heels knock offff Terps
as defense does the joto
By JAMES SUROWIECKI
COLLEGE PARK, Md. Three weeks
ago, at his weekly press conference, UNC head
football coach Dick Cram said he thought
the Tar Heels had been passing too much,
had been passing ujust enough to lose." At
this, groans were heard across the state. Yet
two weeks ago, UNC knocked off N.C. State
while rushing 71 times. Saturday, the Tar
Heels again stayed with the ball-control
offense, and ended up rolling over Maryland,
27-14. So, can you argue with success?
Actually, it wasn't really the running game
that sparked North Carolina's victory over
the Terps. The Tar Heel offense was adequate
to the task, and quarterback Mark Maye had
a good, not great, day, hitting 11 of his 19
passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns.
But it was the UNC defense that led the
way, holding Maryland to just 31 yards
rushing on 33 attempts and making the big
play when it was forced to. The Tar Heel
pass rush was ferocious Saturday, and sacked
the two Terp quarterbacks eight times.
The win upped UNC's record to 5-3 overall
and 3-1 in the conference, while the Terrapins
fell to 44, 3-2.
The Tar Heels opened the game in fine
fashion, as on the fourth play from scrimmage
Maye lofted his best pass of the day and found
Randy Marriott deep on the right sideline.
Marriott was double-covered, but the throw
was right on the money, and the pass went
for 39 yards.
Two plays later, Maye fired a rope to
Marriott on a curl pattern, and the Tar Heels
had first-and-10 from the Maryland 12. Two
Eric Starr runs got UNC to the 5, but on
third down Maye overthrew John Jacobs in
the end zone, and the Tar Heels settled for
a 22-yard Kenny Miller field goal.
That 3-0 lead nearly became a 7-3 deficit
on Maryland's first play from scrimmage, as
sophomore quarterback Neil O'Donnell
dropped back and hit streaking wide receiver
Azizuddin Abdur-Ra'oof right in the hands
50 yards downfield. Abdur-Ra'oof had beaten
Victor Bullock by four or five steps, and could
have trotted into the end zone, but dropped
When the Tar Heels took over, they again
moved smartly downfield. Staying on the
ground, primarily with Starr, who finished

Halloween weekend;: a gruesome, ghoulish good time
By LAURA BENNETT
It may not be East Carolina
University, but Halloween in Chapel
Hill is not taken lightly.
The enthusiasm could be detected
as early as Friday, when the festivities
kicked off with a pumpkin-carving
contest in the Pit.
Students in pairs of two were given
a pumpkin, magic markers, a knife
and 45 minutes to complete their
artistic creations. Some of the more
ambitious participants brought addi
tional materials, such as construction
paper and coats and ties.
The pumpkins were judged in five
categories: scariest, funniest, most

this pumpkin carving!" he said.
He estimated that about 30 people
participated in the contest.

coming out of the mouth and then
everyone copied us," they said.
And the fun didnt end there. Next
on the agenda for Chapel Hill's.
Halloween weekend was the Man
gum Haunted House.
Now in its seventh year, the
haunted house is a traditional form
of Halloween entertainment as well
as a fund-raiser for the North Carol

This year's production was a real
scream. The tour included the third
floor, the basement and assorted dark

course of gory scenes, and hideous
creatures lurking in the shadows
periodically leapt out to attack the
unsuspecting victims. One of the most
popular attractions was the news
paper room, where goblinsi hidden
beneath the paper-covered floor,
grabbed at the fright-seekers.
Junior Todd Jones, who was the
doorman on Friday night, is a third
year veteran of the haunted house.
"I think it's the best," he said. "It's
neat to see how the guys pull together
in the dorm. It's a lot of work."

Mangum residents were very
resourceful. "It was worth $2, espe

Freshman Kelly Rice had a good
scare. "It was good. They scared me

nervous just from being nervous."
On Sunday, Mangum president
Gregory Zeeman reported that the
project had grossed a little over
$2,700, compared to last year's
"I think it went really well, and I
was really pleased," said Zeeman.
"The people worked really hard."
