Indeed. Stomp doesn't include
any verbal dialogue, but the art
ists let their "instruments" —some
long rubber tubes, wooden poles
and even matchboxes, to name a
few do all the talking.
And just when it appeared the
performers had thrown in every
thing but the kitchen sink, well,
they used a few of those, too.
Hanging by chains from four
performers' necks were metal sink
fixtures that acted as snare drums
for one segment of the show.
A few in attendance had hard
times choosing their favorite parts,
whether it was when the perform
ers flicked lighters in rhythm,
used enormous metal trash cans
as stilts or played literally musi
cal chairs, folding and unfolding
them, slamming them onto the
stage emphatically.
“This is the second time I’ve
seen them. The basketball sec

Tosco, referencing a segment of the

several basketballs in a percussion
exhibition that might have made
some wonder why these people

Performers use each piece of the set of Stomp including street signs,
trash cans and kitchen sinks full of water —as instruments.
Chapel Hill resident Patrick
Ingram, who hadn’t seen Stomp
"1 liked when they pulled the trash
out of the trash bag and used it as
instruments." Ingram said. “I guess
you could say it was a trashy show."
Junior Andrew Magill said he'd
seen Stomp in South Carolina
before and was particularly
impressed with his second viewing
of the show.
“1 want to be a Stomper now.”
he joked. “Tell me when their next

audition is."
But nobody in attendance wait
ed for the end of the performance
to show their appreciation, at least
not when prodded by one of the
troupe's members, who jumped
into the front row to start a wave.
“For me. that was the best part
of the performance,” Kang said.
“I think that was probably the only
wave Memorial Hall's ever seen."

In a 45-minute time span
Tuesday afternoon, the Daily Tar
Heel staff stationed near Kenan
Stadium, the Pit and the Student

saw no officers on patrol in those
areas. The only police activity wit
nessed was one officer giving park
ing tickets on Stadjpm Drive.
"1 have no idea what they wear.
I've seen police cars, but I’m not
sure if they’re Chapel Hill or
University police," sophomore
economics major Chelsea Jackson
said. "I’d like to see more of them
so I know ... if something happens,
it will be a police officer that hears
me scream."
Buj other students feel like the
police force is noticeable.
“They seem to be a pretty visible
presence." junior economics major
Tom Koester said. "If I need to get
in contact I feel like I would be able
to pretty quickly that seems to be
true all times of day."
Night watch
After hours, the number of offi
cers drops by half to eight, and
none are bike-mounted.
Although fewer students roam
the campus at night, about “2 per

any additional officers or changed

The department receives addi

"McCracken said, adding that anew
officer would probably earn about
$35,000. depending on education,
training and experience.
Making the grade
Although officers might not
always be visible, DPS ensures that
they have the training and experi
ence necessary to handle situations.
All officers must complete basic
law enforcement training to sene,
but UNCs department requires 12
additional weeks of training for
new officers and retraining once
or twice a year for current officers.
McCracken said.
“The total number of hours they
spend in training is twice the mini
mum standard for officers given by
the state of North Carolina," said
department spokesman Randy-
Individual officers aren’t the
only ones who must meet certain
standards the department as a
whole also must meet 45.9 criteria
to be nationally accredited.
UNC was the first university in
the state to become accredited by
the Commission on Accreditation
for Law Enforcement Agencies
Inc., receiving the distinction in
November 1995.
“A lot of law enforcement agencies
are flying bv the seat of their pants
they’re reactive in their policy
making." CALEA Program Manager
Steve Mitchell said. “The accredita
tion process forces you to be proac
tive in your policy making."

been accredited, and three more
are working toward it
“They cover a pretty broad range
of topics, everything from organi
zation to training, career develop
ment, patrol," Mitchell said. “You
name it, we have standards on it."
Are you afraid of the dark?
Despite the high standards held
by DPS. some students still feel
uneasy on campus.
“I’m usually up in the music
building practicing fairly late, but
I’ve done a lot less of that to pre
vent walking back in the dark," said
junior music major Leah Gibson.
Some students said they are rid
ing the P2P bus instead of walking
at night and ensuring that friends
get home safely with calls or by
walking in groups.
“When before it may have
seemed cumbersome to pick some
one up late at night now we’re more
willing to do it" senior journalism
major Mallory Cash said.
But even with heightened aware
ness, other students aren't chang
ing their behaviors.
Freshman TVler Surratt said he
walked from Linda’s Bar and Grill
on Franklin Street to Winston
Residence Hall last week at about
2:30 am.
“1 didn't see a single police offi
cer, but the next night I may see
three," he said. “That’s really an
impossibility as far as funding, to
literally be able to see an officer
every time I’m out.
“Just because you don't see them
doesn't mean they're not there."

be better placed elsewhere, citing
Rosemary Street. He called the data
student government used “fluffy."
“1 think my experience of walk
ing in that area for 20 years at all
hours of the day ... trumps what
ever you guys feel because I've been
there a long time." Halpem said.
And Terry acknowledged that
other areas in the town also are good
potential locations for call boxes.
“Certamly if I were choosing the
area to put blue light areas 1 may
choose somewhere else," he said.
"There are great numbers of areas
... that need improved lighting."
Delores Bailey, executive direc
tor of Empowerment Inc., a non
profit community advocacy group,
wanted greater consideration of
the Northside neighborhood.
“I would love to have them come
to Northside, walk those streets
and talk about perception then."
Several said resident input wasn’t
But Rea Grainger, outgoing chair
man of student government's town
relations committee, said students
tried to reach out to residents.
He said student government
asked residents to contact them and
provided contact information.
“We did ask for the town’s input,"
he said. *1 haven’t been contacted."
Student Body President J.J.
Raynor, who did not attend the meet
ing, said that the strong opposition
was uncalled for but that “we don’t
consider their opposition indicative
of the wider community."
“The town members who
approached our delegates afterwards
were favorable to the project"
The proposal is three years in
the making. Former Student Body
President Eve Carson stressed stu
dents' safety concerns in September
to the Chapel Hill Town Council.
Residents expressed significantly
less opposition to the town’s plans
for additional street lighting, which
is where the bulk of the funds
about $52,000 will be directed.
The proposal will go to the coun
cil again in four to six weeks. In the
meantime Raynor is urging students
to write letters to council members.
"The next step for students is just
to make sure we really communicate
how much we want this and how
important this is to students."
