THE LOYOLA MAROON VOLUME 69, NO. 19 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA 70118 March 8, 1991 Greek council says no to off-campus organizations By Jada Armour Staff writer The Interfraternity Council issued a memorandum last week addressed to the Loyola community stating their disassociation from organizations that are not recognized by the administration. In the memorandum, the IFC slates that it would not participate in events sponsored by organizations such as Pi Kappa Theta, Beggars fraternity and Phi Phi Phi. The memorandum calls the nonrecognized organizations "antithetical to the values, ideals, and positive progress of the Greek tradition at Loyola." The IFC issued the memorandum to show the administration that on-campus and off-campus Greek organizations are totally different and cannot be compared, B. C. Stolberg, political science junior and president of the IFC, said. Stolberg said IFC-membcr fraternities would not formally support functions being sponsored by these organizations. He said IFC members could not give support to these organizations because they go against the Greek system at L )yola. Stolberg said Greek letter organizations within the IFC have good academic standing and follow the rules and regulations of the university. "The Beggars do not abide by the dryrush policies that have been made clear to them and they operate under their own contingencies," Stolberg said. Robert Phillpott, accounting senior and sergeant of arms for the Beggars, said he feels that his fraternity has stayed within the guidclinesof the university even though they are not a part of the Loyola community. "We withdrew from the university because Knipfing wanted us to sell our residential house and disassociate with our alumni," Phillpott said. Charles "Dusty" Miller, Danna Center director, said he supports the IFC and its decision to disassociate with organizations not recognized by Loyola. Miller said this was a strong and positive move by the council and he supports it because it encourages a positive Greek life at Loyola. Musical messages of peace— Michael Chaney and Therese Poore,sociology seniors, and Catherine McCarthy, communications senior, raise their voices./ Photo by William Liermann LU ignores law, alters copies of IRS forms By Elizabeth Mehaffey Editor in Chief Loyola administrators refused to release tax information this week despite a federal law which requires them to do so. The law requires all tax-exempt institutions to provide for public inspection Internal Revenue Service Form 990. Form 990 must be filed with the IRS yearly. It details support, revenue, expenditures and changes in fund balances for the university. Form99o also includes the names and salaries of the five highest-paid employees. After initially denying The Maroon's request Monday to see Form 990, John Eckholdt, vice president for Business and Finance, allowed The Maroon to see photocopies of the Form 990s for fiscal years 1987-88 and 1988-89. Photocopies had been altered, obscuring some information Specifically, the salaries of the five highest-paid employees, whose salaries should appear in Parts I and II of Schedule A, were not on the photocopy. The law states "the required disclosure must include ... the compensation of the specific individuals required in Part VI of Form 990 and Parts I and II of Schedule A attached to Form 990," according to an IRS publication explaining the law. The law requires that an "exact copy of the original" form be available. "This is the first I've ever heard of a university absolutely refusing to comply with the law," Mark Laponsky, assistant coordinator of the American Association of University Professors, said Monday. The AAUP is a national professional organization of college and university educators which lobbies for increased participation by faculty members. "Since I can think of no good reason why the business office would decline to release that information, it would suggest that there is something that the administration doesn't want known," Dr. Jerry Seaman, associate professor of sociology and president of the Loyola chapter of AAUP, said. The altered photocopy of the form provided by Loyola Tuesday lists as its five highest-paid employees for 1988-89: J.M. Early, WWL-TV general manager; J. Whaley, then WWL-TV National Sales Director; P. Glaviano, then WWL-TV Controller; H. Burney, then director of Ml have more important things to think about [than the law]." — the Rev. James C. Carter S.J. WWL-TV Technical Support; and W. [Bill] Elder, WWL-TV reporter and announcer. All of the names on the lists from the 1987-88 and 1988-89 forms are affiliated with WWL-TV. No Loyola professors or administrators were listed. When asked why the salaries of the five highest-paid employees were obscured from copies of the forms, Eckholdt said, 'The law doesn't require that I explain it to you." In a written statement to The Maroon, the Rev. James C. Carter SJ., university president, said he had never seen a Form What the disclosure law requires The Budget Reconciliation Act of Loyola lo provide access "an exact copy " Revenue Service for tax exempt status.
