UN C students have complained for
years about the hassles and long lines
of drop-add in Woollen Gym.
This October, they may have a
chance to prove just how much they
hate the system.
If Student Congress approves the
project, students will vote Oct. 6 on
a referendum to increase student
activity fees by $5 to help finance a

The UNC men's soccer team

an NCAA tournament bid Tues
day, as the Tar Heels beat 8th
ranked Duke 2-1 at Fetzer Field
before a partisan crowd of 3,800.

The University police department
was reorganized without giving all
officers an equal opportunity to apply
for promotions, several officers said
during a grievance hearing Tuesday.
The 13 campus police officers who
filed grievances with the University
told UNC's personnel department
that guidelines for equal opportunity
and affirmative action were not
followed when promotions were
granted in June.
Reporters were barred from the
hearing Tuesday morning.
"Our main grievance was the fact
that the positions were appointed,
rather than posted on the bulletin
board so everyone could have an
opportunity (to apply)," said officer
Bowler said Robert Sherman,
UNC director of public safety,
wanted to ensure that certain people
received certain positions.

In a letter to Bailey over the

the committee members to vote on
the divestment issue, but rather to
express their individual views.
