University Registrar David Lanier
said 58 class sections were canceled by
Aug. 22. However, the University nor

University to contest dliscjniimation railing
By THOMAS HEALY
The University has decided to contest
a judge's ruling that UNC police officer
Keith Edwards was the victim of racial
discrimination in a 1987 reorganization
of the department.
Lars Nance, associate state attorney
general representing the University, said
Thursday that Delores Nesnow, a state
administrative law judge, incorrectly
applied the law when she ruled in July
that Edwards was passed over for a
promotion because she was a black fe
male. "It was Edward's burden to prove the
reason she wasn't promoted was based
on her race and sex," Nance said. "And

If gas prices continue to increase as a
result of tension in the Middle East or
fewer taxes are collected than expected,

O'Connor said Aug. 22.
"My guess is. it ain't over yet. We
have no way of knowing what our second
quarter allotment will be," he said.
"Another 2 percent? Another 3 percent?
"My real concern is what's going to
happen in January and April. It's going
to be difficult," O'Connor said.
Chancellor Paul Hardin, who spoke
to about 350 faculty and staff in a

pear to be doing many more cuts as far
as instructors go, so there shouldn't be
many more cancellations."
Seniors probably would not have
trouble filling graduation requirements
because most of the cuts were lower
level classes, Lanier said. "It's possible,

Fees, out-of-state tuition rise
due to state financial shortfall.
By CAMERON TEW
Students will face higher fees and in
some cases tuition raises as a result of
the budget shortfall, in addition to other
cuts around the University.
In late July, the N.C. General As
sembly approved a one-time fee increase
for the UNC system to help offset the
state's budget shortage. As a result, in
state students will pay $41.50 and out-of-state
students $93 more this year.
This fee was proposed by the assembly
to offset budget shortages, and UNC
system student leaders supported the
proposal as a compromise after last
year's battle to stop tuition from increasing.
Hardin reverses previous stance,
opens University police recor
By DEVON HYDE
A decision from Chancellor Paul
Hardin to open University police records
to the public will allow more informa
tion about campus crimes to be reported
by local media.
Reversing an earlier stance, Hardin
decided in June to halt University police
access to education records so crime
and arrest reports could be opened.
Campus police officials have not
maintained an open-records policy
previously because of legislation pro
tecting students' confidentiality.
Under the Family Education Rights
and Privacy Act, also known as the
Buckley Amendment, the release of
students' education records to the public
is prohibited. Because many campus
police forces have access to that infor
mation, they do not release incident

hear Mauer's testimony because Mauer
was not available at the time and she
didn't want the case to continue any
longer. But the State Personnel Com
mission could order Nesnow to hear
Mauer's testimony if they found it was
important for the case, Nance said.
Edwards said the fact that the Uni
versity is contesting the decision is
example of University talking out of
both sides of their mouths.
"They're sending out double mes
sages. On the one hand they are saying
they want to do something about race
relations on campus, but on the other
they refuse to deal with it," she said.
"If he (Chancellor Paul Hardin) is
truly committed to improving race rela
tions on campus, contesting my case is
Wayne Jones, associate vice chan
cellor of business and finance, said the
University divided the fee into two
payments to make it more fair. "Some
students will only be here one semester,
so it is only fair to make them pay their
part," he said.
Out-of-state students will also face a
tuition increase this fall. At their August
10 meeting, the Board of Governors
approved a 2.4 percent or $124
increase for the year to help cope with a
5 percent cut in the INC system budget.
But students will also face fee in
creases which are not shortfall-related.
Fees will rise a total of $17.35 from
1 989 to help fund programs and services
for students, including:
reports for fear of violating the act. The
University police have been issuing
summary reports that omitted certain
"The University police will continue
to have access to directory information
about students because that is available
to anyone," Hardin said June 7 in a letter
to The Daily Tar Heel. "Similarly, the
University police will have access to
relevant student information in a health
or safety emergency involving a stu
dent." Hardin also said the University pol ice,
like other Orange County law enforce
ment agencies, would not release sexual
assault victims' names on reports and
juvenile records would remain closed
to the public.

Apart from her grievance case with
the University, Edwards also filed a
civil suit on June 22. That suit names
Hardin, the UNC Board of Trustees and
various University officials as defen
dants and requests $250,000 in punitive
damages, which cannot be awarded
through the University grievance pro
cess. Edwards said the University's actions
would have no effect on her civil suit
because her lawyer would present new
arguments, including the retaliatory acts
taken against her by her superiors while
her case was pending.

n In last year's campus elections,
voters approved two referendums which
increased fees by almost $1. Students
will pay 50 cents per semester to es
tablish a scholarship fund and 35 cents
to fund SAFE Escort. The fee will allow
the group to operate until 3 a.m.
D More than half of the fee increase
comes from the Student Health Services
(OHS) operation fund. Students will be
paying $ 105 per semester, up from $95
in 1989-90. The $10 increase was rec
ommended by the Student Health Ad
visory Committee to cover operating
expenses for the service.
