The MAROON Vol. 62, No. 23 Loyola University, New Orleans, Louisiana 70118 April 13,1984 Kelly triumphs over Shea in run-off By Germaine Age Clark Kelly, accounting junior, defeated Scott Shea, political science junior, by 136 votes in a runoff election for 1984-85 Student Government Association president. The run-off was Tuesday and Wednesday. Kelly received 880 of the 1,624 votes cast. Shea received 744 votes. The run-off election was necessary because neither candidate received the necessary 50 percent of the vote in last week's election. Leaving his new office, the first thing Kelly said to the press was, "What do you make of that? You can come up from nowhere and make it. All you have to do is care." However, Kelly said, "I don't intend to do the job alone." He said experience is important and he hopes he can use Shea's experience next year in the SGA. Kelly added that he appreciates everyone's support. He said this election proves that people are not satisfied with the way things are at "this one-horse college." "1 was disappointed," Shea said, "I thought that the race would be a little closer than it was since Clark had won by only 70 votes in the first election. I thought my experience in the SGA would be able to get me enough votes. Maybe the students want new blood next year. I wish Clark luck; I'm sure he'll do a fine job." "I'm glad it's over," Shea added. For the office of business representative, Tom Rayer, business sophomore, defeated Frank Blanco, management freshman, and Lourdes Miro, business junior. The other new business representatives will be Susan Bellan, management junior, Kathleen Callihan, international business sophomore, Lynne Carr, marketing junior, Terri Murray, marketing junior, and Tom Pellegrini, business freshman. Elected as new arts and sciences representatives are Carla Barrow, communications junior, Mary Casente, biology freshman, Dina Dimaggio, computer information processing sophomore, Lorenzo Lorenzo, computer science junior, Ann Marino, secondary education senior, John McCook, communications junior, Shawn Murray, communications freshman, Lori Potter, political science freshman, Susan Ryan, general studies freshman, and Robin Sigut, communications junior. Jim Beach, criminal justice senior, and Meryl Bel, history junior, with 53 and 64 votes respectively, defeated Bob Skornik, criminal justice junior, to fill the two representative seats for City College. Skornik received 42 votes. Marjorie White, junior, was defeated by Robert Walsh, freshman, Michael Hand, junior, and Craig Sossamon, freshman, in the election for law school representatives. White received 153 of the votes cast while Walsh, Hand and Sossamon received 225, 238 and 190 votes, respectively. "Maybe the students Want new blood next year. " Clark Kdl)' —Photo by Sancet E. Lewis Morial criticizes 'new federalism' By Tammy L. Collins "Reagan's 'new federalism' is attacking the disadvantaged and the under-served by ignoring urban needs in a well-thought-out political battle plan that benefits the upper crust of our society," Mayor Ernest "Dutch" Morial said. Morial spoke Tuesday night before a subdued audience on "Hunger as a National Problem." He was the keynote speaker for Hunger Awareness Week, an annual event sponsored by the Loyola Community Action Program. According to Morial, Reagan's new federalism is designed to eliminate the waste and fraud from human service programs so that more can be done with fewer dollars. "We [American citizens] were offered programs that claimed to give localities more flexibility to meet real needs by enhancing the roles of the state and local governments, when in fact these programs gave localities only the flexiblity to provide fewer services with smaller staffs to fewer people," he said. According to Morial, the national agenda chooses to ignore that one out of every three American children cannot afford to receive preventive health care, and that one out of every two children faces inadequate child care arrangements. He added that medical research has shown conclusively that federal food and health service programs have been effective in reducing malnutrition, anemia, growth retardation and infant mortality. "Yet, our national leadership is opting to cut its long-term investment in developing healthy, productive human capital in favor of the shortterm security provided by missile buildups and other war games," he said. Morial accused the present administration of making a sham out of the term "new federalism." In the '60s, the term referred to federal assistance in eliminating urban problems and to increased dialogue between the federal government and cities. "The real new federalism was a friend of urban America," Morial said, "but what the Reagan administration tries to pass off as a new federalism is nothing but a poor excuse to slash the domestic budget and ultimately dump the nation's fiscal woes onto the backs of local governments.""The White House claims there is a national mandate to cut $40 billion from human service programs while $44 billion is added to the Pentagon's budget," he said. The result of these budget cuts, according to Morial, has caused cities, including New Orleans, to bear the burden for Reagan's funding cutbacks even though cities are not being offered any increased flexibility in raising their own revenues. "In 1953, President Dwight D. Eisenhower said, 'Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies ... a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.' "Thirty-one years later, a different Republican administration in Washington tells us that even though there are more than 34 million poor men, women and children in America today, building bombs is now more important than distributing bread," Morial said. He said he believes that it is the joint responsibility of the federal and urban governments to address the needs of the disadvantaged in America, but that he is prepared to accept the reality that the federal government will no longer be a partner with the local governments in helping the hungry and the homeless. "Because 1 believe the roots of the hunger and hoinelessness problem arc found in our national economic system, which offers many inherent inequalities in distributing its benefits, it seems only logical to me that the Mass offered in memoriam A memorial Mass for Loyola student William P. Fussell will be offered Tuesday in Ignatius Chapel. Fussell died April 9. He was 20 years old. The mass will be celebrated by the Rev. Ernest Ferlita, S.J., at 12:05 p.m. Friends and relatives are invited to attend. Fussell was a sophomore majoring in religious studies and drama / speech.
