About 1 50 people gathered in front

"It would be great if we had a
proactive chancellor, a chancellor that
said, 'I see your goals, and I want to
achieve them,'" said Scott Wilkens,
Campus Y co-president. "It would be
great if we had a reactive chancellor

"We have an inactive chancellor."

Residents both praised and scorned
the Landfill Owners Group decision
Wednesday to require the Landfill
Search Committee to add two to its
list of potential landfill locations. '
Requirements regulating a mini

landfills and airports mandated that
Site 3, located south of Eubanks Road,
be dropped from the list because of its
proximity to Horace Williams Air
port, state officials said Wednesday.
But neither the Landfill Owner's
Group (LOG) nor the Landfill Search
Committee (LSC) had dropped the
site from the list on Thursday.
Scott Franklin, a member of the
Stop the Eubanks Area Landfill

the state officials' report.
"I'm very happy about Site 3," he
said. "I hope the committee will start
listening to facts."
Franklin said that while SEAL
members acknowledged the eventual
need for a new landfill, they felt Site

employees of Carolina Inn

Assistant University Editor
Employees of the Carolina Inn, which
is in the process of selecting new man
agement, have received no guarantee
that they will be able to retain their jobs
once a new company takes over.
Carolyn Elfland, associate vice chan
cellor for business and finance, said the
new company would be chosen from
three finalists. "Hopefully within this
month we'll arrive at which company
we want and start negotiating a deal
with them," she said.
"Ouropening position is that we want
the people there hired by the new com
pany," she said. "One of our criteria
when we asked them to submit propos
als was keeping the employees."
But Jeri Ann Leinfelder, inn reserva
tions assistant, acknowledged that many
inn employees were nervous about the
upcoming takeover because it could
mean losing their jobs.
"We haven't been told one way or
another," she said. "This is my only job.
I'm very worried because I'm single
and I'm not on my parents' insurance,
so I'm worried about that as well."

Some students plan to flood Chan
cellor Paul Hardin's home and office
phone lines with calls until he takes
action on a set of demands, but by doing
so, they could be acting against the law.
Participants in a rally in front of
South Building on Wednesday signed
up for specific times to call Hardin.
Michelle Thomas, black cultural center
ambassador, also urged supporters to
call on their own time.
"We will be flooding thechancellor's
office and home with phone calls,"Tho

paid for his telephone, and we paid for
his house so you can call his house."
The sign-up sheet has spaces for two
callers every IS minutes from 8 a.m. to
5 p.m. every day until March 18, when
members expect to receive another re
sponse from Hardin.
Members of the B lack Student Move
ment, Campus Y and other campus
groups have demanded a free-standing
black cultural center, an endowed chair
for the late UNC professor Sonja Stone
and higher wages for University house
keepers. Detective Walter Dunn of Univer

plained to the police about the calls, it
could be considered harassment.
"As far as the police are concerned,
it's not going to be anything unless
Chancellor Hardin complains," Dunn
said. "Chancellor Hardin is the chancel

know how to handle the situation:"
