The 14 UNC police officers who

University have decided to take their
complaint one step further, the
officers attorney said Wednesday.

Dunklin said the extension would

Most students have probably heard
of or read about the Student Govern
ment's Executive Branch, but chances
are they would fail a pop quiz on
what it does.
Few realize the range of projects
being worked on by the students in
the Executive Branch's office in Suite
C of the Student Union.
For starters, it is headed by Student'
Body President Brian Bailey and
comprised of three presidental aides,
30 executive assistants, a secretary

The officers' grievance charges the
UNC police department with racism
and favoritism in the granting of 12
promotions in June. It contends that
more qualified officers were not told
the positions were available, and asks
that the promotions be rescinded.
The University's proposal, pres
ented to the officers Sept. 17, would
have established six open positions:

$60,000 and $75,000 to renovate the

"The character of Chapel Hill is
what draws growth here, and I don't
think the solution to our problem is
to tear up Chapel Hill so we can get
to it," he said.
Robert Page, who represented
University Square owner Frank
Kenan, also opposes the extension.
"For one thing, it would destroy
three fraternity houses," he said. "I'm
sure a lot of you don't care, but they're
an important part of Chapel Hill."
Page also said University Square
would lose 60 parking spaces if the
extension is approved, when there
aren't enough now.
"I think putting that extension
through would destroy the character
of Chapel Hill," he said. "We have
always been a pedestrian-oriented
downtown. Having two major tho
roughfares that close to each other
would destroy that."
Other people voiced their objec
tions to the extension and changes
in Durham roads.

Students can call into the system
to register for classes, pay bills and
obtain information about grades

On Oct. 6, UNC students will
vote on a referendum to raise
student fees $5 to help buy a
telephone registration system. If
passed, the system would go into
effect in the spring of 1990.

The purpose of the Executive
Branch is to ensure that students have
an effective voice in any decision
made by administrators, Bailey said.
"Our purpose is to make sure that
students play an important role in
decisions that are going to affect
them," Bailey said. "We're here to
represent students effectively."
Most of the Executive Branch's
work gets done through committees,
Bailey said. Each of the branch's 22
committees is headed by one or two

Bernholtz said the officers decided
to reject the proposal because it
doesn't remedy the problem.

determination to get redress of their
grievance," he said. "This proposal
doesn't do that."
The proposal is good as far as it
goes, he said, but it has three major

The assistants are vital to the
