THE MAROON VOL. 79, NO. 12 hgh MAROON.LOYNO.EDU Eight percent tuition increase proposed Students upset about rise in tuition, looking for alternatives By Crystal Bolner Staff writer A proposal for an eight percent undergraduate tuition increase passed the University Budget Committee Monday, according to committee member Joseph Jones. Jones, Student Government Association vice president and economics junior, spoke about the committee's proposal at Tuesday's SGA meeting. He said the committee also proposed increasing Law School tuition by 8 percent and room rates by 3 percent in all four residence halls. Apartment rates would increase by 4.5 percent. The proposal also outlined increases in the sports fee by 10 percent and the student media fee by $10 a semester. Some SGA representatives expressed concern over the increases and said they felt administration was making decisions without putting students first. , "That's crap. When I spoke to freshmen about the increase they were up in arms," said Daryll Manning, representative at large and STAFF GRAPHIC BY ELIZABETH STUART ELECTION PROJECTION STAFF PHOTO BY COURTNEY COLLINS Mayor Marc Morial spoke Monday at the Loyola School of Law. His speech focused on the effects the national election may have on the U.S. Supreme Court. The Black Law Students Association sponsored the event. Gore, Bush race uncertain By Philip Watson Staff writer In this day of multimedia information, real-time statistics and 24-hour news coverage, election analysis has become commonplace. An ocean of political analysts with opinions on who will win the upcoming presidential debate and why is at the fingertips of almost anyone who wants that political knowledge. At press time, ABC and CBS television stations had the two candidates, Texas Gov. George W. Bush and Vice President A 1 Gore, close to being tied. The ABC poll showed an identical 46 percent for each candidate, while CBS showed Bush with a two-point lead, 44 to 42 percent. The CBS poll had a three-point margin of error, so both polls could show an actual tie. CNN has Bush with a seven-point lead over Gore, with a near three-point margin of error. At Loyola, the situation is no different. Ed Renwick, political science professor and director of the Institute of Politics, is a political LUCAP's politics not embraced by all By Matt Walter Staff writer Several members of the Loyola University Community Action Program are supporting consumer advocate and Green Party candidate Ralph Nader, leading some students to believe that the organization has become too partisan. Adam Huberty, English writing and classical studies senior, believes LUCAP is becoming partisan in a way that goes against its mission. "They can have whatever political opinions they chose, but you can't call yourself a community action program if you are practicing politics," Huberty said. Huberty advocates social justice without political involvement. "You don't have to get involved in politics to feed people," he said. LUCAP is an umbrella organization that sponsors 10 major on-going projects each year, according to Lauren Wannemuehler, music education senior and LUCAP chairwoman. The only official involvement that LUCAP has with the Loyola Green Club is through its Environmental Action Project, which is dedicated to learning about and acting upon global and local environmental issues. The Loyola Green Club became politically active this year because of the election, according to Rosina Roibal, music education senior and president of the Green Club. Before that, Environmental Action and the Green Club only worked together to support social and environmental action. "We have worked together for years and never had a problem," she said. She also is a member of the Environmental Action project under LUCAP. The Green Club sponsors programs that support campus recycling, environmental justice, vegetarian and animal rights. "LUCAP tends to support our programs and we support theirs," she said. Historically, the Green Club involved itself in political issues that would promote social - and environmental justice. Members of the group recently attended hearings with the Tulane Environmental Law Clinic on whether a Japanese company would receive permits allowing it to increase the amount of pollution it emits into a polluted corridor along the Mississippi River between New Orleans and Baton Rouge known as "Cancer Alley." However, Roibal said the politics they practice have become more partisan. She said several LUCAP members actively support Ralph Nader and the Green Party, but she has no problem with it. Some members came to the recent Green Party rally supporting Ralph Nader wearing LUCAP T-shirts. "Everything that will effect environmental justice has to do with politics," Roibal said. Sociology junior Teresa Fernandez agreed with Roibal. She works in the LUCAP office and is a member of the Environmental Action project. Fernandez does not think LUCAP is partisan, but that the majority of the people in the program support the same party. She does not see a problem with students promoting LUCAP and the Green Party at the same time, as they did at the recent rally for Green Party See TUITION, Page 6 See ANALYST, Page 4 See LUCAP, Page 6 • Autumn Giusti explores biker culture ... and lives to tell about it Election 2000 Analysis RENWICK political science professor i Life & Times DIVE INTO A TIME WARP WITH THE LATEST FASHICj^pJBfc hgh TUESDAY: The Future of Potties — Part 4 of our 4-part news series, The Raoe is On"
