MAROON I)ce. 5.1980 Loyola I nivcrsilv, New Orleans \b1.58. \CD.l2 Buddig burglary suspect nabbed By ALLEN JOHNSON JR and DAVID SHERWIN A two-month investigation by Loyola Security into the Oct. 5 assault of a Buddig Hall resident and the burglary of her dorm room ended Monday with the arrest of a Loyola employee. Jimmy Lee "Shorty" Woods, 19,3820Perrier St., was arrested by New Orleans Police Monday morning as he was being detained by John Ghio, director of Loyola Security. "The arrest was based on leads and information provided by Johnny (Ghio)," according to Capt. Raymond Bergeron, commander of the Second District. Bergeron said he forwarded the results of Ghio's investigation to two detectives at the NOPD Major Offense Bureau. Woods, a day laborer in the maintenance department, was booked at Central Lock-Up on an aggravated burglary charge. Bond is set at $50,000. On Oct. 5, at about 3 p.m., a black male armed with a revolver knocked on the woman student's door and forced his way in when she opened it. The suspect also said he wanted to "make love to her" but she talked him out of it, according to NOPD. He then tied her up and burglarized the room. After spending about an hour in the room, the intruder gagged the woman, pushed her under a bed, and escaped with $3 in cash and personal items. The suspect also took her dorm keys. Woods has been employed by Loyola for about six months, said Warren Murphy, a maintenance department supervisor. "He got along well with everybody," Murphy said. "He was a pretty good worker, pleasant, neat in appearance..." Murphy said Woods' duties included weeding the flower beds and mowing the grass on campus. Manuel Vega, director of Physical Plant which oversees maintenance operations, had no comment. Woods will be arraigned in Magistrate Court at 9 a.m. Sunday, according to court officials. LOCAL RELIGIOUS LEADERS, including Kevin Kelly,S.J., of Loyola (second from left) met Wednesday to call for an end to U.S. support of El Salvador's ruling junta.

A challenge of Maroon editor selection procedures has delayed confirmation of Michelle Fonseca's selection as editor of the campus newspaper for the spring semester. The editor selection committee chose Fonseca in a meeting Monday. Before the meeting convened, Lloyd Schwed and Marie Prat, who ran together for editor against Fonseca, and three other student staff members filed a protestprotest with the Board of Communications.The protest letter called the selection process, "irreversibly flawed" due to alleged violations of the selection process guidelines. The students asked the board to review the editor applications and choose a new editor. Resolution of the controversy is pending a formal board opinion. The board met Tuesday and Wednesday to consider the protest and to hear testimony from Prat, Schwed, protest co-signers Steve Schulkens and Leslie East, Maroon Faculty Adviser Richard McKinney and communications department Interim Chairman Tom Bell. The protest letter charged McKinney and Bell with violating several Maroon guidelines for the editor selection. Schwed and Prat said the issue of selecting the more qualified editor was skirted to break what had been a deadlock in the voting. The impasse occurred when neither Fonseca nor the Schwed- Prat team received the necessary two-thirds majority in the initial balloting meeting Nov. 21. Schwed-Prat led that vote, 9-8. A second vote was scheduled for Nov. 24. Schwed and Prat said this vote was not part of the written protocol the Maroon set up for resolving deadlocked issues. "From Friday to Monday there were no deliberations, yet two faculty members changed their vote," Schwed said. Carter disputes story By STEVE SCHULKENS and KAREN LANG Political turmoil in the Central American country of El Salvador is bubbling overonto Loyola's campus. University President, the Rev. James C. Carter, S.J., said he was misquoted in a Times-Picayune/ States-Item article which stated that he supports the military junta in El Salvador. In response to the Nov. 23 TP/SI article, Carter said, "My good friend Pierre DeGruy and the editor who headlined his article have, however indeliberately, misinterpreted my position on a very delicate matter of major consequence."DeGruy said the TP/SI "stands by its story." Carter still endorses the position of Robert White, U.S. ambassador to El Salvador, who in the past has supported American aid to the junta. "I think he deserves our backing. It is his policies I support and not, directly, those of the present junta," said Carter in his letter to the TP/SI. But Carter's stand is at odds with the positions of several members of the Jesuit community here and around the country. "Carter supports White and that seems to indicate that he indirectly supports the junta," said Kevin Kelly, S.J., a scholastic .at Loyola. Kelly spoke at a press conference held Wednesday at Tulane by the New Orleans Nicaragua Solidarity Organization. The speakers called for an end to U.S. military and economic support of the ruling junta in El Salvador, a country which has been ravaged by widespread violence. Kelly said, "As concerned Jesuits, we publicly oppose U.S. military and economic assistance to El Salvador." He said the number of deaths in El Salvador as a result of the junta government makes U.S. support questionable. Fifty or so Jesuits in El Salvador have been threatened by rightist militants over the years, according to press reports. Concern for his fellow Jesuits in Central America prompted Carter to meet with El Salvador's consul general in New Orleans. Carter then traveled to San Salvador where he met with therf-President Carlos Romero and Archbishop Oscar Romero, who was assassinated last March. Before his trip, Carter was contacted by U.S. State Department officials who asked him to try to amend relations between the two, who were not speaking to each other. Carter's trip was publicized in the first of several anonymous and defamatory newsletters by what appears to by an anti-Jesuit group. LU law alumni honor dean on his tenth anniversary Marcel Garsaud Jr. was honored on his I Oth anniversary as Loyola law school dean at a banquet held Nov. 22 in Washington, D.C.'s Capitol Hill Club. The event was sponsored by Loyola law graduates living in the- Northeast . Invitations to the banquet were extended by Judge J. Skelly Wright of the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., and Moon Landrieu, secretary of Housing and Urban Development. Garsaud said he is "most pleased" with the plaque presented to him. "It represents the loyalty of our out-of-state graduates," he said. Garsaud also believes the award is indicative of the former students' appreciation for the education they received at Loyola. "They learned that they can compete with other graduates from the more prestigious law schools," he said. (Con't. on Page 2) A The Maroon wishes a HAPPY HOLIDAY to the Loyola family.
