loyola maroon Vol. XLVII Loyola University, New Orleans, La., 70118, Friday, November 20,1970 No. 12 Large cache of grass found in Biever; dorm residents plan self-marshalling By 808 MARSHALL Maroon News Kditor Student leaders in Biever Hall are moving to organize a self-regulation system to deal with drug abuse following the discovery of a large amount of marijuana in the dormitory last week. According to Bill Dohme, senior A&S representative on the Student Government Association, students from various organizations such as fraternities and the SGA plan to use a marshalling system to check the reported drug abuse. "There will be student marshals partrolling the floors of the dorm to check for any flagrant or open violation of the drug laws," he said. Last week, Frank Wagar, vice president for student affairs, and Jack Kellogg, chief of Loyola's security police, discovered slightly over a pound of marijuana in one dorm room. The students involved, according to Wagar, withdrew from school. The marijuana, he said, was "disposed of properly." According to Dohme, the student marshals "won't be ordinary guys who may have come into contact with dope once in their life, but people who know what the stuff smells like and could be able to detect it." "Once the marshals have detected any users they will tell them to get rid of the stuff and not to smoke anymore in the dorm." According to Dohme, any student who is warned and then caught again will be turned over to Wagar for possible university action. "Once in the hands of Wagar, the student would probably have three options," added Dohme. "He can withdraw from school, take the issue to student court, or be taken to criminal court." The administration has not given official sanction to the student plan though. According to Wagar. any plan made by the students is strictly up to them. "I met with student leaders Friday night to answer their questions about possible informers in the dorm," commented Wagar, "and Saturday morning I met with all students in the dorm concerned with the issue. "I simply restated for them the university policy that states any traffic or use in drugs could lead to dismissal or expulsion from the university." Wagar stated that any independent student action taken to check the drug problem would be welcome by his office. "As part of my meeting with the students Saturday morning, I urged the Men's Residence Council (MRC) and all students in the dorm to get involved in an effort to solve the problem." As to whether there are narcoticagents or "informers" in the dorms, Wagar stated that "As far as I know, there are no government narcotic agents on campus. As far as student informers, there are 800 students in the dorm, anyone or all of them could act on his own." During meetings last week, some students expressed the fear there were such agents or informers and said such people had led to last week's seizure of marijuana. Despite the claims though, Wagar said that he and Kellogg were forced into action due to a number of complaints that the sixth floor of the dorm contained "many users of marijuana." He reported that Kellogg and he had gone up to the sixth floor of the dorm and "noticed that the door to one room was not closed but cracked open and a peculiar smell was emanating from it." Upon entering the room, he said, they discovered two male students smoking marijuana and found a "winter's supply" of marijuana in the room. Wagar, as well as student leaders withheld the names of the students involved. Asked if Loyola has a "gentleman's agreement" with the New Orleans Police Department concerning the handling of drug violations on campus, Wagar said that "Honestly speaking, since the events of last Thursday I do not know if any such agreement exists." He added though that the administration would like to have a certain amount of discretion in dealing with the problem itself. "We I the administration] feel that we know the individuals better, know any problems that they may have, and are able to deal with them better than an outside authority." FRANK WAGAR Vice president for student affairs Advisory committee proposed By KATHY BRISCOE Maroon Staff Reporter Loyola's administration has agreed to propose an advisory committee and a committee on committees to the University Senate and the Student Government Association (SGA). Proposals for these two committees were requested by the Coordinating Committee of last September's Conference on Academic Goals, according to its chairman, Jules Sauvageot. The recommendations were proposed to Father Kennelly in meetings and letters last month. The main recommendation of the Coordinating Committee concerns the formation of an advisory committee whose purpose would be to keep the lines of communication open between the President and the University Community. An additional proposal provides for the formation of a committee on committees which would act as clearing house for information about the various committees in the University. The advisory committee would consist of three students, three faculty, and two staff members, all elected by their appropriate constituents, as well as two presidential appointees selected "from whatever element of the University Community the President chooses." as stated in one of the Coordinating Committe's letters to Father Kennelly. The letter states the goals of the advisory committee as follows: "a) To promote a sounding board for the president which can be consulted for opinions, attitudes, viewpoints and advice regarding University policies, procedures and problems. "b) To advise the President on subjects of his choice and at his request. *'c) To advise the president on both the good and bad features of his policies, administration and activities "d) To provide a representative group which can quickly poll or solicit opinion from the Loyola Community when wider opinions, attitudes and advice are needed. "e) To establish and execute procedures for consultation with all relevant elements and constituencies within the University Community. "f) To bring to the attention of the President matters which might otherwise escape his attention. "g) To establish its own by-laws and procedures consistent with its representative nature and general goals and objectives stated above." The Coordinating Committee recommended that a committee on committees be formed which would record and file information on every organization, board and standing or ad hoc committee in the University. "We believe," said the letter, "that the information to be gained by the above recommendations for a committee on committees would clarify all lines of authority and responsibility throughout the university. The net result would be a high level of communication, participation, trust and good will among all elements of the university community." A presentation committee composed of Jules Sauvageot. Father Tetlow, Herman Hasenkampf, and Debbie Burke met Monday with Dennis Rousseau, executive assistant to the president and made these proposals. Rousseau agreed to have the measures presented to the SGA and the senate, according to Sauvageot. When both bodies have considered the proposals, they will be referred back to Father Kennelly for approval. The Coordinating Committee, originally called the Executive Committee, was formed with purpose of reporting to Father Kennelly the results of the Conference on Academic Goals. After fulfilling this purpose, the original committee disbanded and reformed as the Coordinating Committee. The present position of the Committee is tenuous. Sauvageot said that no one has made a statement concerning the future existence of the Committee, but that it appears "it will cease to exist." It will remain effective long enough to make the presentations to the SGA and the Senate. The Coordinating Committee also hopes to be able to "meet with the people who were at the conference and report to them what has happened." Nominees - Loyola students will have these 12 coeds to choose from in selecting the 1970 Homecoming Court. Elections-will be held Monday and Tuesday to select a queen and five maids. They arc, from left: Liz Silva, Danielle Lehon, Linda Ory, Julie Devlin, Peggy LcCorgne, Debbie Levy, Diane Carricre, M.A. Brasted, Karen Marcinak, Becky Stell, Sid Hall and Liz Palermo. Chase seeks reason for delay in board action Student Government Association president Hdgar (Dooky) Chase stressed a need to learn the reason why nothing has been done by the administration concerning the Disruptive Demonstration Board at Tuesday night's meeting of the SGA. Chase stated that the SGA had requested an administrator to serve on the board, recently formed by the SGA. No answer has been received to this date. A motion by Chase to allocate a maximum of $2,500.00 for the purchase of a car to be raffled at a later date was tabled for further discussion with student organizations concerning their participation in the raffle In other SGA action Bob Rayhawk, A&S freshman representative, was appointed to serve as chairman of the Election Committee. He will replace Joe Charbonett who had served as chairman up until Tuesday. Cindy Littlefield was appointed to serve as the SGA's corresponding secretary following a motion by Chase. Chase stated that Liz Palermo had resigned from the office due to an overburden of work. Chase also moved that Mary Beth Harun be ratified as the SGA's purchasing agent. The appointment was carried. The purchasing agent will handle miscellaneous articles under $50.00 needed by the SGA, and will be in charge of the internal upkeep of the SGA office. Finally an announcement was made that elections for a Campus Court maid from City College will be held Monday and Tuesday of next week. Faculty confirms permanent dean By ALY COLON Maroon Staff Reporter The shift from acting to permanent dean of Arts and Sciences has not altered any ideas or plans as far as the Rev. Joseph Tetlow, S.J., is concerned. "1 decided when I was appointed (acting dean] that 1 would not act as a 'rump session dean'," stated Father Tetlow, "and decided to go ahead and act as though I were going to continue." Father Tetlow said he felt by adopting this course of action that even if he did not continue as permanent dean it would be more beneficial to the college than to act "tentatively and with hesitation." The only effect of being appointed permanent dean of A&S has had is to make him consider putting a time limit on his tenure in office, whereas before he never gave it any thought. Asked if he thought that any restrictions had been lifted now that he was no longer acting dean, Father Tetlow said no. "As a matter of fact I have surrounded myself with limitations which earlier deans did not have." As one example he cited his consultations with the Curriculum Committee (whose meetings are held weekly), which as far as he knows was never done before. Other limitations he has incurred which are also attempts to "spring" the faculty from what appears to them to be limitations for them" are his aims to create five new advisory bodies. Father Tetlow said. With the formation of these committees, he hopes to identify the seat of decision-nuking and promote cooperation. The committees include a Rank and Tenure Committee, a Conciliation Committee, a Committee on Procedures, a Committee on Inovation, and a Faculty Senate. Having submitted these proposals to the Curriculm Committee in mid-September, they have been reshaped and are now ready for submission to the college. The Curriculum Committee's report will be presented by Father Tetlow at a meeting of the College of Arts and Sciences, Monday, at 4:30 in the Science Complex Amphitheater. The meeting will also consist of a semester report in which he plans to inform the faculty about the status ol the college and present a statement of how he sees "the crisis in higher education and the role Loyola can play on changing the crisis to an opporutnity." Father Tetlow said that in the last few months he has spoken with the deans and academic vice-presidents of seventy colleges and universities. "I've had a real opportunity to sift their thinking on where education stands and where its going, and place Loyola in this large picture." staled Father Tetlow. Although the picture, on the whole, is very depressing, he said, Loyola's place in it is encouraging. REV.
