THE LOYOLA MAROON VOLUME 67, NO. 16 LOYOLA UNIVERSITY, NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA 70118 FEBRUARY 3, 1989 Board increases tuition 15 percent Roussell: Tution hike falls short of ÜBC's 19.3 percent proposal By Hank Stuever Managing Editor Loyola's Board of Trustees approved a 15 percent tuition increase for the 1989- 90 academic year last Thursday, about 4 percent below the increase administrators had asked for, said Dr. Norman Roussell, vice president for Administration.Full-time undergraduate tuition will be $7,700 per year, up from $6,704 this year. Law school tuition will increase 12.58 percent, Roussell said, and residence hall rates will increase by 10 percent, reflecting rising maintenance costs. Roussell said that once the board had approved the 15 percent increase, administrators decided to round tuition to the nearest zero, making an actual increase of 14.86 percent The administration's initial request for a 19.3 percent hike, based on recommendations made by the 17-member University Budget Committee, would have put tuition right at $8,000, he added. Roussell said that he was pleased with the board's decision, even though the in- Graphic by Andrew Nolan/ Photo by Krissy Harper SGA: Board responds to student pleas for reasonable increase Itv Robert Landry Staff writer Members of the Student Government Association held a subdued demonstration Jan. 26 in the Danna Center to reaffirm the student body's position on a proposed 19.3 percent tuition increase. The SGA staged the protest as members of the Board of Trustees gathered for a 1 p.m. meeting to vote on the budget for fiscal year 1989-90, including the proposed tuition hike. According to David Vandersand, vice chairman of the SGA's academic affairs committee, approximately 15 SGA members formed a line at the head of the stairs leading to the Senior Commons Room, greeting the board members and handing them fliers. The fliers expressed the SGA's concern for fair student representation concerning the increase and included survey results showing that 39 percent of the student respondents would be unable to afford a tuition increase of more than 13 percent. "They were really sympathetic to what we were trying to do," Michael Belle, law president, said. Abadie expects budget cuts despite crime wave By Angela Pulido Staff writer Despite an increase in crime in New Orleans, Loyola Security faces economic cutbacks in the proposed budget for the 1989-90 fiscal year, according to Security Director Alan Abadie. "I don't know where the ax is going to fall. Whether it will cut administrative or personnel, I don't know," Abadie said. "However, wherever the cuts are made, they will have a definite effect on Loyola's security," he said. The cuts come during a surge in violent crime in New Orleans, reflected by the unusual number of murders this January. A 15-year-old boy, Andre Walker, became New Orleans' 28th homicide victim in 1989 when he was shot and killed early Monday while visiting a relative in Algiers' Fischer housing project. Police could not explain the dramatic increase in January's murder rate. "The only connection we have made so far is that most of the murders are drug related," said police spokeswoman Lt. Yvonne Bechet. As of Jan. 31, 31 murders had been committed, 3 of them classified as justifiable homicide. Police have made arrests in 70 percent of the murders, and 75 percent of them have been classified as drug related. Though the numbers are high, they aren't a record — there were 31 homicides in January 1979, none of them justifiable.According to crime statistics released early in January by Warren G. Woodfork, Superintendent of New Orleans Police, the murder rate for 1988 reflected a 12.75 percent increase over 1987. As of Jan. 31, the 28 murders thus far in 1989 almost doubles last January's total of 16 murders. Though no murders have occurred in the Uptown area this year, several incidents of violent crime were reported last year. According to the article "Police probe link in Uptown crimes" (The Maroon, Oct. 21, 1988), students reported several See Tuition raise/page 7 See SGA/page 6 See Crime/page 7 1989 Black-and-White Commemorative Budget Cut Carnival Poster Inside! There are many Mardi Gras traditions — perhaps too many. Since 1983, The Maroon' has gone all out at Carnival time to publish a full-color Mardi Gras issue with an annual color poster drawn by a Loyola artist. Well, this year we've got the poster, but it's in black and white because no one — and we mean no one — was left unscathed by the university budget ax. So from the "Maybe Next Year" Dept., we proudly present our annual poster, a very classic addition to our collection, skillfully designed by Nancy Hairston. In beautiful black and white. This one goes on our office wall with the rest, where someday others will look back and reflect on 1989 — The Year of the Cuts. We hope they chuckle ... politely. dfśdaf fCE— The Maroon will not publish next week because of Mardi Gras holidays. Publication will resume Feb. 17.
