THE LOYOLA MAROON VOLUME 67, NO. 12 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY. NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA 70118 NOVEMBER 18,1988 Cuts dig into LU academic budgets By Hank Stuever News Editor While all academic departments are coping with across-the-board cuts of 12 - 13 percent from their operating budgets, efforts by the Office of Academic Affairs to spare cuts to the library, computing and faculty research development grants have failed. According to Mary Lee Sweat, universityuniversity librarian, the library will have to cut $88,000 from its budget, which means already-ordered books will have to be canceled and no new books can be ordered for the rest of the year. In addition. Sweat said, no new publications will be ordered and many currently received publications will go unbound until money becomes available. According to the Rev. George F. Lundy, S.J., senior vice president, cuts for Academic Affairs, the university's largest division, totaled $353,297. The cuts, which were mandated by a $2 million projected loss in revenues from Loyola-owned WWL-TV in September, have hit City College and the colleges of Arts and Sciences, Business and Music in a year where budgets had no increases from the previous year, Lundy said. The loss in projected revenue has meant a $1 million cut in Loyola's current fiscal budget of $47.9 million — to be distributed among the university's five divisions. In a memorandum dated Oct. 24, Lundy informed the different colleges that a flat 13.04 percent cut in their operating budgets would help enable the placement of an "iron ring" around three areas he hoped to shelter from as many cuts as possible: academic computing, the library and faculty research development grants. SGA raises $8,000 with phone drive By Tim Watson Staff writer Jason Caniglia, Student Government Association president, said Tuesday that the SGA's phone-mail fundraising campaign raised about $8,000 for the library, scholarships and financial aid. "That is excellent," Caniglia said. "It was definitely worth it." More than 60 students from service and academic organizations and the SGA contacted about 3,500 Loyola graduates from the classes of 1986-88 in the campaign, which took place Nov. 1-10. The final tally of the exact amount raised has not yet been completed. The office of Alumni Affairs will collect the money pledged and distribute it to the three beneficiaries, Caniglia said. The SGA spent $400 on refreshments for students who worked during the drive. Eileen Chapoton, Annual Support director, said, "I think it's wonderful that the SGA is involved." Chapoton added she could not comment on the specifics of the drive until the final figures become available. Some donors earmarked their pledges for one of the three areas to be funded. Once those specific pledges are subtracted from the total, Caniglia said, the remaining funds will be divided evenly among the library, financial aid and scholarships.Tulane's 'school-next-door' image stresses cooperation over conflict By Robert Landry Assistant News Editor The Ivy Next Door Tulane University. To the compilers of The Right College 1989, it is a private, non-sectarian, Southern university with a "more competitive" selectivity rating. To Tulane's university relations office, which distributes a list of "Tulane Highlights" in recruiting packets, it is an eminent research school, combining academic and athletic excellence. To Harvard, Princeton, Stanford, Yale and Georgetown, it is the university that has matched each school's record of Rhodes Scholar selections for the past five years. To numerous T-shirts trotted out on numerous chests, it is the "Harvard of the South." To Loyola students, it is the place across Freret Street that has better fast food. Harvard of the South? "I think we're generally ranked among the top 25 universities," Diana Pinckley, Tulane's executive director of university communications, said. "I think we do have the image, and deservedly so, of being selective and private." According to Pinckley, Tulane has made definite efforts to enhance its image further in recent years. "We work to get into the national media," Pinckley said, adding that Tulane has had more success with this in Photo by Nancy Hairston See Cuts/page 7 See Fund raising/page 7 See Tulane/page 5 |P No Maroon j KfiM| "5"
