The Loyola MAROON Volume 71 No. sďsfsdfdasf Qcloj^^r g ]992 Bailey to replace Abadie as Public Safety head By TaMiko Condoll Staff writer V incent Knipflng, vice president for Sttudent Affairs, announced the appointment of Patrick Bailey as Loyola's new director of Public Safety in an Oct. 1 memorandum to the university community. The campaign for a new director of Public Safety began in June when the former director, Alan Abadie resigned. No reason was given for Abadie's resignation, and several university officials refused to comment on his resignation. Thirty-five people submitted applications for the position, but only five were invited to Loyola for interviews. According to Robert Reed, director of Residential Lifeand acting director ofPublic Safety, interviews were conducted by three separate panels consisting of Public Safety officials, faculty and students. The decision to hire Bailey was almost unanimous, Reed said. "I was very impressed with the man. He is, in my opinion, the best man for the job," he said. Bailey received his bachelor's degree from Meinrad College in Indiana and his master's degree in criminal justice from Michigan State University. He served for three years as a security consultant for businesses and colleges across the country, and is currently Security Manager for Texas Instruments in Houston. When asked why Bailey has chosen to leave his position at Texas Instruments to come to Loyola, Reed responded, "He seems to like the campus community and he is looking for a new experience." Bailey said that he is looking for a new experience, and he added, "I thought it was a challenge I've always been looking for. I always wanted to get on a college campus." "I'll be able to combine my two degrees, and experience in security and law enforcement, but with less of a focus on law enforcement." Bailey plans on asking the Loyola community what they want out of Public Safety in the future. "Before I make any changes I need to Find out what the needs of the students and the campus community are so the we can address them," he said. "I also need to get to know the department and the men who work under me .There seem to be some good men in the department/They just need someone to lead them in the right direction. I can do the job," he added. Bailey will officially begin his duties as director of Public Safety in early November. Free speech takes center stage in Peace Quad By Brandt Hilden Staff writer In the Peace Quad on what was assumed to be a typical Wednesday afternoon, a student shocked the crowd when she ripped apart a New Testament distributed by a group of men she called "facists," then distributed pieces of it to various students to bum. Student speakers aimed a barrage of profane language was aimed at students during the free speech forum, sparking a request by four Public Safety officers to keep the comments clean. The free speech forum was sponsored by the philosophy club and Phi Sigma Alpha, the political science national honor society, that encourages all students from sorority sisters to pseudohippies to speak their mind into an open microphone.It may sound like a karaoke baron "Crossfire" but it happens right here at Loyola from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm every Wednesday in the Peace Quad. Derek Dehoog, philosophy sophomore, is the mind behind the mic who requested the use of the Peace Quad for the philosophy club. He is also on The Committee for Rest and Relaxation: A Break from Rhetoric. Other committee members include Kevin Patton, philosophy junior; Tammy Hotard, English senior, and Mike Starke political science junior. The committee members act as "neutral moderators," or try to at least S tarke believes that freedom of ideas is essential to the future. "If you have a society which encourages free thought, you have a society which is able to meet the challenges of each succeeding generation." he said. Hotard encouraged students of all different walks of life to voice any opinion that came to mind. "I want to see the Birkenstocks up here, the Doc Martins, the combat boots, the shiny-skirtlooker-upper penny loafers, the cheesy bows, the Hey-man hair wraps, the professors who complain all the time, and especially the brothers, .teach me something I don't know." "Student apathy" was the prevailing issue of the forum, which prompted many students to overcome their inhibitions and speak their minds. Student Government Association president, Scott Laragy, second year law student, who is a member of the University Budget Committee, complained of the lack of student representation on the committee. The committee is currently- made up of two students, four faculty members, five vice presidents and five deans. "It sucks," Laragy said, referring to the lack of student voting power on this committee. However, some progress has been made with the addition of a second voting student to the committee. As the afternoon progressed, many issues were opened up, such as the conflicts within Greek life and the issues involving off-campus fraternities. "Why can't PKT's or Beggars weartheirTshirts to school?," Dehoog said, "Idon't agree with some of their principles, but I do feel they should be able to express their principles.". "If we can find a common ground, we can change," he added. Members of Greek organizations did not let themselves go unnoticed. Tina Wilson, philosophy senior, said, "I'm a philosophy senior....and I wear a bow...l'm a Theta Phi; if you're so against us we'll never unite." And a fellow member of the Greek system added, "We're all people just like y'all are." Other complaints were voiced against the school's administration. One such complaint was voiced by a fifth year senior, who said that she no w realizes that her faith in the administration was misplaced and should have been placed in the community. Though the forum covered a wide a range of topics, a range as wide as the students who brought them up, the theme of student apathy remained constant. Laragy brought the forum to a close by quoting Matthew 10:36 which says, "Man's worst enemies will be those of his own household." "I want to see the Birkenstocks up here, the Doc Martins, the combat boots ... teach me something I don't know." —Tammy Hotard, English senior A doggie is a girl's best friend—Kathy Meyn, visual arts sophomore, cuddles Sharee, a poodle, at Alpha Chi Omega's Twister on Friday/Photo by Alan Choate.
