MAROON Scpl.ai, 1980 I, ovol a I iiivcrsitv. New Orleans \Cd.oB.XCD.4 LU students assaulted; Ghio checks Security By ALLEN JOHNSON JR A 19-year-old communications major maced a youth who tried to take her purse in front of Twomey Hall, a Loyola women's residence hall, last Thursday night. The youth "dropped to his knees and screamed" threats of death as the woman entered her car. "I'm going to kill you, you m—f— bitch!" he screamed, "I'm gonna kill you." The youth fled, but the student fears "he might come back with a weapon and hurt someone else." In an unrelated incident the same day, a juvenile with a criminal record threatened two Loyola students with a razor in Marquette Hall, just one floor above the president's office, according to Loyola Security Director John Ghio and official sources. The youth and three companions were arrested for trespassing and turned over to NOPD. These incidents have raised questions in the student community about the effectiveness of Loyola's security. Ghio listed lack of recognition by New Orleans Police Department officials, lack of manpower, and an inefficient answering service as problems hindering security's protection of students on campus. "After 7:30 p.m., we don't have a dispatcher. We' have a commercial answering service," Ghio said about response time to calls. "I hope it doesn't take a serious incident to warrant getting a dispatcher." Ghio said that he had tested the system himself, calling to request an officer. An officer arrivedarrived at Ghio's location 30 minutes later, he said. "The response time of the officer was three minutes," he explained. "But it was about 27 minutes before the answering service called the officer." An investigation supported Ghio's statement about the service.service.A woman reporter for the Maroon called the answering service several nights asking for an officer to escort her to her vehicle parked two blocks off campus. She called repeatedly each time, but the service did not dispatch an lt?Z ?2f the fin*l !ddit-°n n the im,ov«'ive food Pro*"»» »* Loyola, will once again make a late debut ££?.xy.oVyr,rr.o y edu,ed,oopenSep* 29,Hardeeswinnow°pensometimein Fall Fest set for today By MARCIA MOLNAR Loyola University's president will be dunked in a pool of water today. The Rev. James C. Carter, S.J., will be participating in Fall Fest, a mini-fair sponsored by the Loyola Union and the Student Government Association. The festival begins at 3:30 p.m. in the quad. "We hope to make this the biggest event in Loyola history," Student Government President Robert Buras said. Vice President Ivan Ransopher added that the festival will "provide an opportunity for organizations to raise money for themselves and hopefully spark more participation in the organizations and in Loyola." There will be 25-cent beer, and Pilot Food Services of the South will serve hotdogs, hamburgers, baked beans, barbecued ribs and iced tea. Students may use cash or Vali-Dine cards, which must be validated in the Orleans Room. The Faux Pas, Tony Bazely and Vieux Carre bands will provide constant entertainment. Later, The Pink Panther Strikes Again will be shown outside.Booths and tables will be set up for student organizations to recruit members and raise funds. Buras said he would like media coverage from WWL. "I want Fr. Carter to be in the LUCAP dunking booth when WWL is here," he said. City College future is shaky By STEVE SCHULKENS With the departure of former City College dean Walter M. Maestri 111, the fate of the university's evening school remains uncertain.Dr. Robert Preston, vice president of Academic Affairs, appointed a six-member committee to study the possibility of merging City College and the College of Arts and Sciences. The committee includes three faculty members from each college. "The city college program here will be continued, but it will be a question of administrative makeup of the two colleges," said Dr. Willie Zanders, acting dean of City College. Zanders said it is too early to speculate about the future of City College. "Part of the confusion lies in the fact that continuing education has been phased out for now and the Women's Center is shut down," Zanders said. "The committee reviewing City College will make its recommendations to Dr. Preston next year. "Short courses and seminars are easier to suspend than degrees that City College offers," Zanders said. If City College and the College of Arts and Sciences are combined, Zanders said it "would mean a pooling of all the services of both colleges." This would include faculty and staff members, he said. But Zanders said, "It is too early to tell how a new administrative unit will be set up." It is not clear what personnel changes, if any, will be made. The direction of City College and the hiring of a new dean will depend on the committee's report, according to Preston. If the university decides to continue City College, a new dean will be selected to fill the seat vacated by Maestri Maestri's resignation prompted the university to scrap its non-credit continuing education program, including the Women's Center, which closed Sept. 15. "When Maestri resigned, Dr. Preston felt he could not manage all the agencies of continuing education," said the Rev. James C. Carter, S.J., university president. Preston said the university would study the possibility of restoring the three-year-old program by next school year. Asked if his leaving forced Loyola officials to close down the non-credit services and seminars, Maestri replied, "I don't think it should have." Sheila Fancher, assistant director of continuing education who was dismissed after the program folded, said, "It's a matter of administrative policy. Preston conveyed to us that there was no direction in the program - that Maestri was indispensable." Poll shows student concerns are Pres. election, war and money By TOM HARMEYER Loyola students are concerned with electing a president, staying out of war and making enough money to live. Loyola students were asked recently, "What current issue con-' cerns you most?" Of the 106 students polled, 32.1 percent said the presidential election. Social issues, including the military draft, were the response of 30.2 percent. Foreign affairs concerned 22,6 percent, while 15.1 percent cited economic issues. The lack of a qualified candidate was the main worry of 35.3 percent of those concerned about the presidential election. Others polled either supported a particular candidate or spoke about media coverage of the race. Of those who addressed social issues, 50 percent were concerned with the draft. Other areas of concern included environmental, urban, legal or religious issues. Inflation was the economic concern. Seventy-five percent of those concerned about foreign affairs mentioned the Iranian hostage situation.Female students were most concerned with the presidential election (44 percent) and foreign affairs (32 percent). More than SO percent of the male population addressed social issues, such as the draft, while 21 percent were worried about the economy. Social issues generally ranked high in the survey, but the Equal Rights Amendment, and birth control weren't mentioned. Controversial issues, such as nuclear energy and capital punishment, received minimal attention. (cont. on p. 8) Students may submit poll questions to the Maroon, deadline Friday.
