MAROON LOYOLA UNIVERSITY OCTOBER 29 ,1976 VOL.. LI 11 IMO. 7 SGA budget approved By Alan Citron The finance committee's budget proposals were accepted 21 to 2 in a roll call vote at the SGA meeting last night. The committee, which had a budget of $29,684.71 to work with, spent two months conferring on a proposed budget. At the meeting last night, finance committee chairman Joe Altonji outlined the bulk of the allocations. Direct SGA programs such as the Richard Frank Memorial Grant Program, the loan fund, and the publication of "The Informer" were budgeted $3,900.00. Internal budget costs including the salaries for SGA secretaries, miscellaneous office supplies, the Presidential Contingency, and the executive proposal ran up a cost of $9,447.50 The total allocation for organizations came to approximately $16,000.00. The remaining $4,162.36 was placed in the SGA general fund for future projects. Objections over the allocations for organizations were raised by City College representative Len Rousell as the proposals were opened to floor discussion. Citing the addition of $10,000 into this year's budget, Rousell raised the question of where and how the extra money was being spent. Committee chairman Altonji and others present cited the fact of higher grants to organizations, more money into private projects, and the four thousand plus dollars reserved for future considerations. The discussion came to an end as Arts and Sciences president, Jim Fadden pointed out that the SGA needed the extra money to carry them through the year. Fadden expressed himself saying, "After October, the SGA has been financially dead. Now we can get motivated to spend this money on university-wide programs." The last controversy of the night occured when business representative Jim Doherty objected to the finance committee's refusal to grant the Inter-Fraternity Council $100.00 for an orphan's picnic. When his motion to re-instate the solicited funds failed, Doherty raised the question of why LUCAP (a university service organization) is receiving money for their projects. At this point, a motion was made to cut LUCAP's budget. After heated discussion, the motion failed. After the LUCAP controversy was settled, a motion was made to vote on the entire budget proposal. The motion passed, and after a quick roll call vote, the finance committee's suggested budget was approved.

Joseph McGill, S.J., Loyola's Dean of Campus Ministries. "I think there's gonna be hell to pay,"Fr. McGill said, "because if the issue of Latin 10 years following the Vatican Council is still causing problems, you can imagine what's going to happen. There's no comparison. It's like the explosion of a small missile compared to that of a hydrogen bomb" Over 1,300 Catholic priests, religious and laity met in Detroit last week and recommended that priests be allowed to marry and women be ordained into the priesthood. The recommendations will be forwarded to the National Conference of Catholic Bishops who will meet next May. From there, the process is unclear, but changes of this type would normally be handled by the Roman Curiat and ultimately the pope. That process is usually long. "There are no theological obstacles that I can find/' McGill said. "It's really a cultural problem. When people ask me if I have any problems about ordaining women to the priesthood, I say 'Theologically no, emotionally yes.' Of course, it depends on who the female is. There ate a few male priests I don't get along with." The Rev. Stephen Rowntree, S.J., assistant professor of philosophy, feels the ordination of women is long overdue. "Personally, I feel more strongly about the ordination of women," Rowntree said. "It's simple justice, and it should be done. There are many women who have felt called by God who are willing to become priests. I don't think it will happen while Pope Paul is still Pope, but after that. . . " But the Very Rev. James Carter, S.J., Loyola's president, says there could be a theological problem in allowing women to become priests. "It's not clear that the Pope and the bishops have the power to ordain women priests," Carter said. "We are so far away from a decision that I can't really say what's going to happen. I know when the change comes it will be very traumatic for a number of people, but what the long-term effect would be is hard to say." The two issues will probably have to be considered separately because of the theological questions involved. While there are no women priests in the Church today, there are married men who are active priests, according to Carter. "In the Eastern Uniate Church, a man can stay married if he was married before he became a priest," Carter said. "So there are married priests in the Church of Rome today. If the Church wants to, it can do it overnight, but I don't see it in the near future." While these two proposed changes are bound to elicit heavy debate from within the Church, McGill says they are not important relative to other problems the Church faces today. "Actually, I think they're bringing front and center an issue that does not belong front and center," McGill said. "It's the issue of human sexuality. I think the problems of faith and justice are the important issues facing the Church that have to be addressed." Students aware, vandals beware By Dwan Singleton Loyola's Campus Security has launched an "awareness campaign" to combat the rising number of thefts on campus. Since the institution of the program, there appears to have been a slight decrease in thefts. The program "might be some significance" to ti.is, noted Francis Oschmann, Director of Security. Three instances of theft have been reported. In one case, someone broke into a candy machine, which was "more of a vandalism than a theft," since there was "more damage to the machine," he explained. A bicycle and a potted plant also have been stolen. According to Oschmann, the "awareness campaign" involves brochures and posters. The message of caution also was carried in a recent article of the Maroon. Loyola's Campus Security has been working with the Tulane Security in developing in the public the idea of crime prevention. Investigation into outside sources such as materials and funding for publications was made. They have contacted the National Sheriffs* Association about obtaining some of its explanatory pamphlets. They have contemplated stamping the phone numbers of the Security Departments of Loyola and Tulane and the New Orleans Police Department on the materials as a reminder to the reader. Brochures for the "awareness campaign" were published by Loyola's Security Department and distributed to residents of the dormitories and to university employees. The pamphlet for dormitory residents stresses precautionary measures such as locking the room when it is not occupied. University employees in a different brochure are advised to be concerned about University property by being careful with the keys which lock it. Additional reminders of caution are the posters which were placed in the residence halls, restrooms and over the bike rack. Signs in the restrooms urge the reader to "Keep your valuables with you." Bicycle riders are warned "Like it. Lock it!" Oschmann looks forward to starting "Operation Identification." Through this program, property would be engraved with a mark. University property wo p.1 bear thef symbol "LU", while persona/ roperty would carry the student's social security number. Campus Security would work with the resident assistants in the dormitories in order to get the residents to utilize the program. Since many personally would not engrave their articles, they "might be willing. . .to have someone do it," he explained. Key control throughout the University "wasn't as tight as some places or as it could be," revealed Oschmann. This situation could enable a person with an old key or an illegally duplicated key to gain access into someone's room. In an attempt to minimize occurrances of this, the locks on the doors were switched a few years ago. Concerning the "awareness campaign", Oschmann felt that "if it's publicized properly.. outsiders will be less likely to try something." However, those belonging to the University community who are stealing might be able to overcome this. noC^"IT!! 1 \ \ oD* F«»ut r / m X\ \ 6***/ / / / /key lock/ \ \ "Like it, lock it," is the slogan being uaed by the Security Office to warn students about protecting valuables.
