In response to student concern
about campus security, the University
police department has organized a
student patrol network. ,
The group, sponsored by campus
police and Student Government, will
patrol potentially dangerous areas of
campus such as parking lots and the
areas around residence halls, Robert
Sherman, UNC director of security
services, said Thursday.
"They will serve in an observe-and-report
capacity," Sherman said.
"They'll be offering support to the
"Our purpose was to provide
additional people out there who are
concerned with the safety of students
and University employees who are on
campus late at night," he said.
Student patrol members will be
paid $3.50 to $4 an hour for their
work, Sherman said.
Patrollers' activities will be coor
dinated by a police officer, Sherman
said, and the program will employ
Students initiated the patrol's
organization last year, Sherman said.
"It was proposed to Student Govern
ment by students who felt it would
be helpful if we had more eyes and
ears to report suspicious acts and
suspicious people," he said.
Kelly Thorburn, chairwoman of
Student Government's Campus
Security Committee, said students
have tried to start similar services
But, she said, the contribution of
University police will help to ensure
the program's success this time.
"Security is such an important issue
on this campus," she said. "That fact
that it will be professionally handled
should make students more enthusi
astic about it."
Student Government allocated
funds to the project to purchase
equipment such as radios, jackets,
shirts and flashlights. Sherman said
funding for the salaries will come
from the Department of University
Housing, University police and the
Traffic and Parking Office.
Campus police have begun to
interview applicants for positions on
the patrol and are still accepting
applications, Sherman said.
Lt. Don Gold, an officer in charge
of organizing the program, said he
hoped the service would be operating
in two weeks.

There has been a change in the date
of a UNC history professor's testi
mony before the U.S. Senate Judi
ciary Committee on the nomination
of Judge Robert Bork to the U.S.
Instead of appearing today, Wil
liam Leuchtenburg will be the first
witness to testify Monday morning.
The chairman of the committee,
Sen. Joseph Biden, D-Del., post
poned Leuchtenburg's testimony to
give Bork an extra day to testify on
his own behalf.

The Chapel Hill building inspector

Leuchtenburg, an authority on
20th century American history, will
testify on the importance of the legacy
of civil rights to the nation over the
past 60 years.
He said Wednesday that he would
condemn Bork's nomination.

stands outside the expansion of civil
liberties we have accomplished over
the past 60 years," said Leuchtenburg,

Wall declined to comment on the
matter Thursday night.
Beam said the fraternity plans to
call in a building contractor "very
soon" to assess the house and make
the necessary repairs.
Before, Wall cited the house for
holes in the walls, unsafe handrails
on the stairways, broken windows
and water damage in the kitchen,
among other things.
The fraternity has already made
about $2,000 worth of repairs to
correct those offenses, Beam said.

A 158-house development sche
duled for construction on 30 square
acres of land surrounding University

who believe the water supply will be
contaminated by the project.
The Amberly Project will be con
structed on 192 acres of land located
on the watershed, which is Chapel
Hill and Carrboro's only water
Protecting the watershed is impor
tant because rainwater that falls on
that land could be contaminated by
pesticides, fertilizers and septic

Officer Keith Edwards said Thurs
day that many of the officers are not
satisfied with the University's prop
osal and plan to take the grievance
process at least one step further.
In their grievances, the officers
asked that all 12 promotions be
rescinded.because not all officers were
given an equal opportunity to apply
for the positions.
In response, the University has
offered to establish six open posi
tions: two majors, one captain, one
lieutenant and two sergeants.
According to the proposal, none
of the promotions being questioned
would be rescinded.
Sherman would submit descrip
tions of each job to the personnel
office, the proposal states. The
personnel office would then review
each position, with help from the state
- , Carrboro brought in an expert on
water, Dan Okun, to give his opinion
on how development would affect the
watershed, said Chapel Hill Town
Council member Julie Andresen.
"(Okun) said that the quality of
water you drink is directly propor
tional to the amount of development
you allow," she said.
On July 28, the Carrboro Board
of Aldermen voted to annex and zone
the project depending upon whether
a conditional use permit was granted,
said Melva Okun, Okun's daughter-in-law
and a member of "Protect Our
Water," a group dedicated to protect
ing the watershed.
"What (the Board of Aldermen)
did was illegal because they zoned the
(Amberly Project area) specifically
for the Amberly Project," Ms. Okun

Sherman would appoint a special
advisory panel that would develop
and post selection criteria for each
position, review the qualifications of
each applicant, interview each appli
cant, and inform Sherman of the best
candidate for each position.
Sherman would review the panel's
recommendations and make the final
decision about each position.
Any officer who wishes to reject
the proposal and continue the appeals
process must submit an appeal to the
personnel office within 15 days, or
by Oct. 2.

proposed for it, she said.
Unless different people are elected
to the Carrboro Board of Aldermen
in November, the Amberly Project
could set a precedent for development
on Orange County's watershed, Ms.
"As long as the same people are
in office in Carrboro, then develop
ment will continue on the watershed,"
Ms. Okun said.
In response to the board's decision,
a group of citizens with property
adjacent to the Amberly Project is
suing the town of Carrboro and the
Board of Aldermen.
"We think we have a good chance
of winning and we think Carrboro
is taking us seriously," said Margaret
Brown, chairman of the Carrboro
Board of Adjustment.
