The MAROON Vol. 63, No. 6 Loyola University, New Orleans, Louisiana 70118 September 28,1984 Liddy co-sponsorship will cost SGA $2,130 By Michael H. Kleinschrodt The Student Government Association voted unanimously Tuesday to co-sponsor with the Loyola Union the Oct. 23 speaking engagement of Watergate burglar G. Gordon Liddy. The SGA will fund half of the projected cost of presenting the event, minus the amount expected from ticket sales. The total amount the union expects the Liddy presentation to cost is $4,760. The SGA and the union expect $500 to be made from ticket sales. Therefore, the SGA will fund $2,130 — half of the $4,260 remaining cost. The resolution also states that any profit or loss resulting from the presentation be shared equally by the SGA and the union. ••h. ■ . , :-n. — For example, if ticket sales fail to amount to $500, the difference will be made up by both groups contributing equal amounts. Should ticket sales exceed $500, the difference will be split equally between the two groups. Byron Arthur, chairman of the union's Ideas and Issues Committee, said tickets are projected to cost Loyola students $2, Loyola faculty and staff $3 and the general public $5. City College delegates asked why the union contracted on Sept. 14, prior to SGA funding approval, to bring Liddy to Loyola in October. The bill stated that the union's speaker budget was too small to handle such a speaker event. They also asked whether there were students present at the meeting to express their opposition of the bill. The delegates voted in favor of the resolution when the question was called. Communications senior Andrew Moreau had written a viewpoint to The Maroon stating that a petition would be posted in the Danna Center for persons opposing the bill to sign. However, he said there was apparently little student interest in the issue and, because he received no feedback from students, he did not post the petition. Clark Kelly, SGA president, lent his support to the bill, saying Liddy knows a lot about the dirty workings of government and that students have a lot to learn and a lot to gain by hearing Liddy speak. The original bill proposed by Arts & Sciences Representative Carla Barrow asked the SGA to fund $2,500 for the event, but the SGA Student Affairs Committee recommended allocating the lesser amount of $2,130. As Barrow had no objections, the recommendation was accepted as a friendly amendment. In other business at Tuesday's meeting, the SGA voted to establish an ad-hoc committee to study the university's degree of preparedness to deal with the Residential Permit Parking Plan (RPPP). The plan would prohibit commuters from parking for more than two hours within any given residential zone. The committee, of which Business Representative Thomas Rayer will serve.as chairman, will also act as the students' voice before the New Orleans City Council and before any assembly of residents dealing with the possible installation of the RPPP near Loyola. Kelly said the committee will develop a referendum which, upon SGA approval, will be presented to the students for a vote. The referendum will take a stance on the RPPP and urge Loyola administrators to start releasing plans to deal with the plan immediately. The situation has reached a nearcrisis level, Kelly said, adding that he hopes the administration can work with the students through the SGA to develop a solution to the problem. Kelly said the SGA is willing to do whatever it can to help come up with solutions. In a class by herself With mid-terms just around the corner, communications senior Monique Garsaud finds it necessary to spend a little extra time in the graphics studio. —Photo by Darlene Pierce Not many vote as 2 freshmen elected to SGA Two freshmen captured the remaining representative seats in the Student Government Association runoff elections which attracted little voter attention Tuesday and Wednesday. In the College of Arts and Sciences, Mary Gedney received 64 percent of the vote to defeat Laura Albers. In the College of Business Administration, John Deveney won with 58 percent of the vote, defeating Charles Favret. Miles Faust, SGA vice president, said a total of only 92 ballots were cast in the two runoffs. However, the turnout for runoffs is usually lower than initial elections, Faust said. "This week the turnout was less than 10 percent, which is especially low," he added. Last week's election results failed to include freshman Bill Lunsfordr who became City College representative after running unopposed.

Publication will resume Oct. 12.
