Charges revealed, swapped; elections held Stories by Robert Treadway Staff writer Sig Eps get sanctions, file three charges against Beggars; date set for hearing It took the Interfraternity Judicial Board approximately four hours to find the Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity culpable on three counts regarding the incident involving the beating of a Beggars member and property damage to the unofficial Beggars house, according to a written statement from Greek adviser Chris Cameron. At the hearing held March 23, the IJB found the Sig Eps culpable of the following charges: • (Violating) responsibilities of a student organization by a 7-1 vote • Physical aggression by a 6-2 vote • Property damage by a 6-2 vote IJB passed on its suggested sanctions of suspension of the Sig Ep charter to Jim Eiseman, vice president for Student Affairs, for approval. Eiseman fully supported the sanctions. Cameron, also director of Student Activities and the Danna Center, said the fraternity is appealing the IJB decision to the Rev. Bernard Knoth, S.J., university president. Knoth will review audio tapes of the hearings and make his decision. There is no time limit on the decision. The suspension of charter until May 18, 2002 went into effect immediately regardless of appeal. According to the Interfraternity Council constitution, any further violations against the Sig Eps "shall immediately go to IJB with the only possible sanction of revocation of charter if determined culpable."

Cameron, director of Student Activities and the Danna Center, said at Tuesday's Panhellenic Council meeting that two candidates will be interviewed for the associate director of student activities position. The candidates are Liz Billings-Schafer, job location and development coordinator at the University of New Orleans, and Jason "Jay" Lambert, assistant dean of students at the University of Evansville in Indiana.

Students are welcome to listen to and question the candidates. Cameron said the university will choose one of these two candidates for the position, which includes Greek advising.

Cameron to stamp out the butt of Loyola's last bastion for indoor smoking By Matt Walter Staff writer Smokers in the Orleans Room will have to move outside next fall when Chris Cameron, director of student activities and the Danna Center, implements a no-smoking policy for the cafeteria. "People don't like to go into a place to eat and smell smoke." -CHRIS CAMERON, DIRECTOR OF STUDENT ACTIVITIES AND THE DANNA CENTER, abOUt the reason behind banning smoking in the O.R. Cameron said the building should be smoke-free because of health hazards for second-hand smokers, and for aesthetic reasons. "People don't like to go into a place to eat and smell smoke," Cameron said. "We also have a problem because not all smokers are as courteous as others. They use (cafeteria) trays as ashtrays, and we have to order new ones." The residence halls became smoke-free in the fall of 1999, leaving the OR as the only place on campus where students can smoke inside. The only other place where smoking is permitted is in professors' private offices, according to the Student Handbook. Students and faculty who want to smoke while they eat can still sit in the courtyard outside the Orleans Room. The Danna Center Advisory Board, comprised of six students selected by Cameron to make policy decisions for the building, made the call. In the future, the Student Government Association will appoint the board members, Cameron said. The board originally met in February 2000 to discuss Loyola University Students Against Sweatshops and its efforts to remove all clothing made in sweatshops from the bookstore. "We had some complaints about it (smoking the OR), so we made a decision at that meeting," Cameron said. The board made its decision based on health reasons and the aesthetics of smoking in a cafeteria, according to Ruston Broussard, math sophomore and Danna Center See SGA, Page 3 See IFC, Page 3 See PANHELLENIC, Page 2 See SMOKING, Page 2 The Maroon wiH not appear next week due to the Easter holidays.
