The Loyola MAROON Volume 71 No. 2 Loyola University New Orleans. Louisiana 70118 September 4,1992 The Schalow story: no class action during suit By Courtney Sullivan Editor in Chief Dr. Frank Schalow appeared on Loyola's campus this week, but it was not to return to the classroom and teach. Schalow, the former associate professor of philosophy who Hied a lawsuit against the university last April when it failed to renew his employment contract, came to campus Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 to hear the depositions of his former colleagues. Tenured philosophy professors Dr. Patrick Bourgeois, Dr. Sandra B. Rosenthal, the Rev. Alvin J. Holloway, S J., philosophy chairperson, plus associate professor of philosophy. Dr. Constance L. Mui, gave testimonies in Marquette Hall Monday and Tuesday. The testimonies are a part of the discovery phase of the suit, William Miles, Schalow's attorney, said. He said a trial date has not yet been set for the case. In the meanwhile, Schalow said he is doing research at home. Loyola files a defense Loyola Filed a response to the claims of Schalow's lawsuit June 4 in the Civil District Court for the Parish of Orleans. Loyola's attorney, Richard E. McCormack, Hied the response. McCormack could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Loyola's defense holds that because Schalow was a non-tenured member of the ordinary faculty, he was on probation during his employment at the university. Loyola's response states that the tenured faculty members of the philosophy department had the "primary right" to recommend a terminal contract for Schalow. Dr. Robert J. Rowlandjr., dean of Arts and Sciences, accepted the recommendation that was in turn reviewed by the Rev. George F. Lundy, S.J 'hen senior vice president and dean of Faculties. The defense states that the Rev. James C. Carter, SJ. university president, and the Board of Trustees concurred with the faculty's recommendation. Although the University Conciliation Committee recommend jd Schalow be granted a year to resolve behavioral difficulties and regain the trust of his colleagues, Loyola's defense holds that the university had the right to not follow the committee's recommendation. The defense stales that the committee does not have // music be the food of love, then play on — Mark Rabin's guitar playing sends Tina Neidballa into an appreciative trance in the Peace Quad Wednesday./ Photo by L.

SGA begins year with three resolutions By Tina Bergeron and Chris Bonura Staff writers The SGA congress, at a meeting on Tuesday, unanimously passed resolutions that, if approved by the administration, would lower parking fines and add-drop fees, and extend hours at the music library. The parking resolution would lower the fines from $20 to $ 10 for students with permits who violate the parking code. The resolution cites the constant overbooking of parking spaces, and argues that the fine be lowered so that permit holders are not penalized for the university's mistake. It does not propose to lower Fines for those who violate handicapped and Thomas Hall parking. BusinessSchoolrepresentativeCaseyStowe, business junior, asked if the resolution was just a measure to make "it less expensive for people to park where they're not supposed to." V ice-president Erika Schwarz, communications junior, quickly responded, citing the small technicalities, like parking a little over the line or slightly misplaced parking stickers, which are grounds for a $20 fee. Schwarz claimed the penalty was too high, considering that the City of New Orleans charges $15. President Scott Laragy, second-year law student, said that Robert Reed, acting director of Public Safety, told him that such a reduction was possible. Laragy added that the final reduction, if the measure is approved by the University Parking Committee, would probably be a compromise'of $5. The SGA is also discussing the possibility of a late parking permit, which would be effective from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. The permit would cost between $35 and $40, and would make parking more convenient and safe for commuters using Loyola's facilities at night. Laragy also discussed the possibility of an agreement with Uptown Square, in which students would park at the shopping center and take a Loyola shuttle to campus, to further alleviate the space problem. Another resolution extends the current one day "grace period,*' in which students can drop or add a course free of charge, to three days. Currently, after the first dayjDf class, if a student adds or drops a class, he or she is charged $5 per class. The resolution aims to protect those students who were unable to receive their required or desired courses that later reopen because of drops. Music school representative Margaret Walsh, music senior, authored a third resolution to extend the music library hours to the same hours of the Main, Miller and Law libraries. According to English dept. names Mccay as new chair By Peter Nicholas Reichard Assistant News Editor After spending the 1991-92 school year in suspended animation, the Loyola English Department elected a new chairperson. Dr. Mary Mccay, associate professor of English, took the position previously held by interim chairperson Dr. Robert Rowland, Jr., dean of Arts and Sciences. Rowland was acting chairperson last year after a department vote for the position during the summer of 1991 ended in a stalemated lie between Dr. John Mosier, professor of English, and Dr. Marcus Smith, associate professor of English. Mosier had filled the position for the final two years of associate professor of English Peggy McCormack's five-year term and was incumbent for a second term. McCormack resigned for medical reasons. Mosier became a controversial figure in the department after a May 1991 article ji the Maroon revealed that he had hired his wife's compar.y, bXP Edit, to do layout, design, and graphics for 7 he No# Orleans Review, a publication sponsored by the Loyola English Department. EXP Edit charged the Review $500 more per issue than previous companies. This caused further disarray in a house divided by what one English professor, who chose lo remain anonymous, called "careerending " conflicts. This past summer, however, two new candidates. Dr. Andrew Horton, professor of English and Mccay, were nominated. Described by Dr. Ron Foust, associate professor of English, as "a gesture of conciliation on the part of all." Mccay won the election by a unanimous vote within the department. Mccay sees her aew job as a watchdog position. "It's a Job that involves being here to make sure things run well," Mccay said. The department as a whole has to decide what it's going to do right now." Although the department has not had an opportunity to discuss new objectives, most professors are positive about the change. English professor Bruce Henricksen praised the choice of Mccay. "She's extremely energetic and intelligent, and she gets along with everyone in the department," he said. Foust also approved of the choice and is hopeful that Mccay will put an end to the turmoil that has plagued the department. "I have every reason to believe that the election of our new chairperson signals the beginning of a future of cooperation and positive achievement for the English Department," he said. "Everyone is very optimistic." See Schalow/ page 6 See SG A/ page 6 Inside this week... a Pac-Man goes Vegas See story page 11.
