1984 Mardi Gras poster, center pull-out The MAROON March 2, 1984 Vol. 62, No. 19 Loyola University, New Orleans, Louisiana 70118 Tuition increase slated, dorm rates follow suit By Ted Mahne Undergraduate tuition will increase to $4,390 per year in the coming academic year. The 11.1 percent increase amounts to $440. The increase was announced Wednesday by John L. Eckholdt, vice president for business and finance, in a press release from University Relations. Tuition for the 1983-84 academic year was $3,950. Eckholdt was unavailable for furthur comment at press time. Other 1984-85 tuition costs were also announced. City College will charge $85 per credit hour and classes in the summer session will cost $110 per credit hour. Graduate students will now be paying $165 per hour. The Loyola School of Law has raised its tuition to $5,660 per year. According to E.P. Seybold, director of Scholarships and Financial Aid, steps have been taken to increase several forms of financial aid to meet the growing educational costs. Seybold said "We were aware of the fact that tuition was increasing and we prepared several necessary budget increases." Seybold said the greatest increase would be in the need-based forms of aid. He added that the Presidential Scholarship program will also increase its funds to pay full tuition costs for honors students. Seybold said that while he expects some students who have never before filed for financial aid to apply next year, he does not expect a dramatic increase. "I do not predict a substantial change in students being eligible for financial aid," Seybold said. He added that currently, about 50 percent of Loyola students receive some type of financial aid. It was also announced that residence hall rates will increase about 12 percent next year. A double room in Buddig Hall will cost $884 per semester and a double room in Biever Hall will be $842 per semester. According to Robert Reed, director of Residential Life, the main reason for the increase is to cover operating expenses. "The operating philosophy of Residential Life is to be selfsupporting," Reed said. Reed said rates in the residence halls have increased about 12 percent each year for the past three years. In spite of the increase, he added that a small deficit in operating costs can be expected.In order to lower future expenses, Reed hopes to implement a campaign to save energy and stop waste in the dorms by having students turn out lights and shut off water faucets.

Haig called for a balance between the conservative quest for national power and the quest for democratic ideals like human rights. "A failure to maintain that balance will result in the loss of the support of the American people," Haig said. He said Reagan has not achieved this balance because his administration has been insensitive to the nations abroad. "We must be patient and sensitive to those nations who may or may not share U.S. values in this hemisphere and Asia as well," Haig said. "They [Third World leaders] are becoming disenchanted with Marxist-Leninism and they are reaching out for a relationship with the United States — hence we listen." Concerning the Soviet Union, Haig insisted the Americans and the Soviets are in a constant state of competition. He said the actions of Americans should clearly show the nation's objections to offensive Soviet actions. Americans cannot "conduct business as usual, when the Soviet Union engages in illegal interventionisms of the developing world. We simply cannot show passivity," he said. But Haig predicted a swing to a more moderate policy by the Soviet Union because of "internal contradictions and difficulties." He recommended that the United States respond rapidly if these difficulties present an opportunity for improving the relations between the two nations.
