Loyola MAROON LOYOLA UNIVERSITY / NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA / VOLUME LVI, NUMBER 8 / OCTOBER 27, 1978 Duplass refutes editorial By Cathleen Compton "It's simply not true," said Dr. James Duplass concerning the recent Maroon editorial entitled 'Turmoil in the Registrar's Office' (Sept. 28, 1978). Duplass, who is acting director of academic services for Loyola this semester said, "The editorial is very misleading." He said the reason one woman was not given credit for an internship course she is taking is because she did not register for the course on time. She tried to register six days after the deadline for adding courses. Mrs. Jody Bell, urban studies major, will be given the credit in the spring when she registers, according to Duplass. "Ms. Bell just simply didn't meet the deadlines," said Duplass. "If people object to the drop/add deadline, then let's change the date, but let's not make exceptions." 'When you get down to the bare facts, it was my fault.' "When you get right down to the bare facts it was my fault," said Bell, but she added that the system shouldn't be so inflexible. "He is a textbook example of the beauropathic individual .. . Duplass is so fixated with the process that he's lost sight of the product." Bell said that the university cannot compete with larger universities unless it is responsive to student needs. According to Duplass the reasons for the deadline to add courses are several. Official and unofficial statistics need to be sent to the federal government and to other agencies by certain dates. Also, the finance office has to verify how many hours students are registered for, correct rosters must be sent to all faculty, and bills must be sent out according to how many hours a student is registered for. "We have to at some point definitely state whether the student is full or part time or whether he is enrolled at all and that can only be done if we stop adding and dropping sometime," said Duplass. The registrar is the 'custodian of academic policy.' There are two exceptions to the deadline for adding classes according to Duplass: music performance courses which require audition and a theatre production course. "Those two exceptions were given by the Courses and Curriculum Committee," said Duplass. "They had sought an exception to the end of the add/drop period because of the nature of the instruction." The registrar is the "custodian of academic policy," according to Duplass. "I didn't define that myself. Dr. Preston has . . . sometimes I have to be the one to say 'no'." The Offices of Admissions, Registrar and SCOPE all report to Duplass until a new director of admissions can be found. Duplass said the university is hoping to find one by January. Book store profit doesn't come from book sales By Cathleen Compton "We don't think we make anything on books ... We think most of the profit comes from the other merchandise we sell," said Marjorie L. Nobles, manager for the Loyola Bookstore for 13 years. According to Nobles, 75 percent of the bookstore's gross is from textbooks, the other 25 percent comes from school supplies "and other." But most of the net profit comes from "the other," she said. This semester 32,672 books were ordered from some 880 publishers but Nobles said that textbook profits are "eaten up" in freight expenses and extra salaries (for help with the books at the beginning of the semester). Jay Calamia, assistant controller of finance at Loyola, said that the bookstore profits go into general funds of the university and that bookstore expenses come out of the university budget. John L. Eckholdt, vice president of business and finance, related to the Maroon through his secretary that it is not the policy of the university to give out revenue and expense figures. Hence, the exact figures of the profit made by the bookstore were not disclosed.Arts/Fest a success Fr. Ben Wren, S.J. of Loyola performs an ethnic dance before an appreciative crowd. Fr. Wren was only one of the scores of performers at the Art/Fest last week. The Arts/Fest was termed a success by organizers and gave local artists, musicians, dancers and craftsmen a platform to display their talents. For the whole story, see page 8.
