The MAROON Loyola University, New Orleans, Louisiana 70118 September 24, 1982 Vol. 61, No. 5 SGA funding criterion put to test By Jody Lentz Staff Reporter The Student Government Association funding criterion was put to the test at Tuesday's meeting by a financial request from the Loyola University Community Action Program for its annual Children's Day. The controversy over LUCAP's request began when it was revealed that the organization is officially under the auspices of Campus Ministry. Under article 3e of the SGA's funding guidelines, "any organization that is chartered by the SGA as a departmental affiliate will not receive any funding from the SGA." When LUCAP was first chartered by the SGA, it was designated as a student-run organization; only later was it made a departmental affiliate of Campus Ministry. LUCAP's charter was never corrected. Despite this, the congress passed the financial bill by more than a three-toone margin. Chris Young, chairman of the Academic Affairs Committee, which investigated LUCAP's chartering said, "The SGA is leaving the door wide open for anyone to come along and ask the SGA to bend the rules for their organization just as we did for LUCAP." Finance Director Cecelia Absher said the SGA's current balance is just more than $25,000. This balance will be spent on both internal programming and programming outside of the SGA, she said. "Even though SGA is planning to be more liberal with its funds because of the increased student activity fee, we are looking for programming that appeals to the student body as a whole, "said Pete Broz, vice president of the SGA. The Loyola Soccer Club received SGA funds to offset the cost of the club's uniforms and other expenses incurred in their attempt to bring intercollegiate sports back to Loyola. The SGA also chartered a new organization, the Loyola Model United Nation Association, which exists to represent a certain government at various conventions around the country. In elections held Monday and Tuesday, John Guidry and Frank Llende were elected as freshman representatives to the Arts and Science delegation. There will be a runoff election between Guyleen Castriotta and Maria Grisaro for the third A&S delegation seat. Sheila Earthman was elected to the business delegation, and a runoff election between Angela Rey and Jeff Griffin will be held to fill the second seat for business freshmen. Both runoffs are scheduled for Tuesday. Ed Rodriguez and Richard Mc- Cormack are the new law school delegates. David Means was selected by the Music School President to fill the vacant seat in the Music delegation.

Carter, S.J., president of Loyola, died early Wednesday morning at Montelepre Memorial Hospital following a lengthy illness. She was 79. Funeral services for Mrs. Carter were held yesterday morning, followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at Most Holy Name of Jesus Church. Mrs. Carter was born March 1, 1903, and was a longtime resident of New Orleans. She worked as a transcriber for Ochsner Clinic and Ochsner Medical Foundation for several years. She also worked at Tulane Medical Center, U.S. Public Health Service, Southern Baptist and Mercy hospitals. Mrs. Carter is survived by three sons, the Rev. Carter, Dr. John F. Carter of St. Louis, and Dr. Anthony J. Carter of Las Vegas; a sister, Christine Denning, Delray Beach, Florida; eight grandchildren; a nephew, the Rev. Alvin J. Holloway, S.J., associate professor of philosophy at Loyola; and two nieces, one in New York and another in Atlanta. The Maroon staff extends deepest sympathies to the Rev. Carter and his family. Employee union vote postponed By Glenn P. Collins University Reporter Delay caused by pending case Last of a series © Loyola Maroon 1982 Today's scheduled vote by Pilot Food Service employees to decide on representation by United Labor Unions Local 100 has been postponed, Fred Lewis, regional director of the National Labor Relations Board, said Monday. Lewis postponed the election when the Local 100 withdrew its request to proceed. Pilot's appeal of the postponement failed Wednesday when the board in Washington agreed to let Lewis' decision stand. Lewis said the postponement is not connected with any final decision by the board on the Shelia Berry case. He said the postponement occurred simply because a final decision has not been made. Pilot Food Services Director James Hardy called the postponement "a delaying tactic by the union." He added, "We would like to have the election on the 24th and put the matter behind us. We want to get it over with." Local 100 organizer Danny Cantor said the postponement was "a strategic thing." "We want to get Shelia back on the job before the election," Cantor said. Berry was an active participant in the attempts by Local 100 to organize Pilot workers that began in late April. The union contends that Berry was fired June 9 because of her active participation in the unionization attempts. Firing on such grounds was prohibited by the Wagner (National Labor Relations) Act of 1935. The official Pilot statement is that Berry was terminated because students were complaining about her and she had an uncooperative attitude. The complain' before the NLRB was dismissed at first and later was reopened. According to Local 100 files containing a letter to the NLRB, "The sequence of events and the timely firing of an outspoken union supporter is clear. Because . . . [the firing] was not work-related, every employee in the cafeteria understands that the firing was a result of her Union involvement . . . and organizing effort." The case was re-opened recently when Linda Richardson, a former Pilot manager, filed a new affidavit before the NLRB. The contents of that affidavit have not been released to the press. It has not been determined how long it will be before the Berry case is decided and the election re-scheduled.
