The Maroon ESTABLISHED 1923 VOL. 77 NO. 12 FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4, 1998 Loyola University New Orleans University starts fund for Guidry By ROBERT TREADWAY Assistant News Editor Thanks to faculty members, Mary Guidry has won her financial battle with Loyola. The faculty, in conjunction with the Rev. Bernard Knoth, S.J., university president, announced plans Wednesday to establish an escrow account for Mary Guidry, former assistant to the dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. According to Vernon Gregson, religious studies professor, faculty and staff members will deposit contributions in the account. The president's office will match the donations. "I think people will be pleased by the action," Gregson said. Guidry earned the respect and admiration of Loyola faculty and staff members during her 22 years of service. She and communications department administrative assistant Lynda Favret won the 1998 Coadjutor Optimus Award in recognition of their dedication. The award is presented annually to outstanding non-faculty employees. Gregson and Mary McCay, English chairwoman, have been acting on Guidry's behalf to secure benefits for her. This measure comes after McCay and Gregson introduced a proposal at Dowds removed from SGA congress position There's an empty seat on the Student Government Association congress. J.T. Hannan, political science senior and SGA president, confirmed Tuesday that Alex Dowds, international business and finance freshman, was impeached two weeks ago. Hannan would not disclose the reasons for Dowds' impeachment. Dowds could not be reached for comment. Dowds was a business representative and the now-empty position will be filled in January, Hannan said. According to Hannan, the Nov. 17 meeting was closed to the public on the recommendation of Tim Bamett, director of the Danna Center and SGA adviser. No other SGA member has been impeached or recalled to date. Because the SGA constitution gives no formal impeachment or recall procedures, congress adopted the SGA Court of Review's impeachment procedures. Congress members may be removed from office if they accumulate more than three absences, if they cease to be an official member of the group they represent, or if they break rules of the SGA constitution or university handbook. When congress has a vacant seat, it advertises for the position. People may submit applications, and a nominee is chosen with a two-thirds approval of congress.

Students protest tickets sent in mail By KEVIN HELD Staff writer Lauren White didn't expect to find a handwritten letter from Public Safety addressed to her. After reading it. White, psychology sophomore, was furious. "I got the ticket for allegedly going past the stop sign on West Road and taking a right at the Rec Plex," she said. According to White, the ticket stated that the violation occurred on Thursday, Nov. 19 around 12:50 p.m., which startled her even more. "I'm not even on campus during that time," she said. White thought Public Safety should have stopped her to give her the ticket. Patrick Bailey, director and chief of Public Safety, said many students don't follow the rules. "Somebody ran the stop sign in front of the Freret Street garage and made an illegal left turn. That person was driving well above the 10 miles an hour speed limit, but I did get the license plate, and a ticket was sent to that person's house," Bailey said. When it comes to chasing someone down to give them a ticket, the Public Safety employees don't pull people over as the city police do. "It could be a real safety hazard if we went chasing after anybody on or off campus. It could cause serious traffic jams," Bailey said. White will file an appeal for the ticket, and she said she also asked people to sign a petition for her.

The Third Branch Hodges Chief justice EVANS Justice LOPEZ de QUINTANA Justice PIZA Justice SANTOYO Justice CHILLEMI Justice JONES Justice MILLER i Justice ROBERT Justice LAVIE Clerk ot court Judicial check and balance for SGA revived after years of inactivity By ELIZABETH STUART News Editor The third branch of Student Government Association emerged last semester after years of inactivity. The Judicial Court of Review is composed of nine justices. One of these is the chief justice, currently Nathan Hodges, finance and management junior, who presides over the other eight. As the third branch of SGA, the court's purpose is to act as a check and balance for the other two branches. Claudia Santoyo, second-year law student and justice, said the court differs from federal courts. "I don't want us to be confused with the role of any sort of federal court," she said. "We don't have the same functions, and we don't have the same limits. ... Though a lot of times people will say 'checks and balances,' and they will be thinking of the shadow of a federal constitution when it's not applicable in every instance." According to the SGA constitution, the Court of Review interprets the constitution, resolves matters concerning campaigns, has jurisdiction over disputes and controversies between organizations and persons and organizations. It also adopts its own procedures. A normal hearing procedure goes as follows: The clerk of court reads the alleged problem, all parties take an oath See GUIDRY, Pg. 4 See COURT Pg 5 See TICKETS, Pg. 3 L NEWS SPORTS LIFE & TIMES Quigley promotes ••' Cross country records L«||jWWrJwP Market brings Asian political activism. best finish at nationals.
