The Regents yesterday authorized the establishment of
a branch of the University Store at Bursley Hall, apparently
resolving a four-month-long altercation with residents of
the North Campus dorm.
After a lengthy discussion of the financial situation of
the year-old discount store, the Regents approved its expan-
sion to Bursley by a vote of 5-2.
At the same time, regental approval was given to an
increase in the store's inventory ceiling from $25,000 to
$40,000, despite the executive officers' recommendation that
the ceiling be limited to $30,000. The inventory ceiling is a
limit on the total value of
items stocked by the store at
any given time. I

The planned extension of Observatory St. through a
student residential area has caused a controversy over whether
city planners should give priority to easing situations for
people or cars.
The city planning commission's proposal, which wyould
connect Observatory to Forest Ave. in order to improve traffic
around the Medical Center, is opposed by a city councilman, a
Student Government Council officer and residents of the area
through which the proposed extension would pass.
Since this fall, some of the area's residents have been
attempting to stop the proposed extension, which was ap-
proved in a city referendum last year.'
Their efforts were bolstered on Aug. 4 when Councilman
Rooert Faber (D-Second Wa'rd) requested that the planning
commission re-evaluate the Observatory-Forest extension as
well as several other proposed road alignments.
"My major concern is to change the city's priorities from
