Belushi on the tube



University Students' Council president Dave Tompkins is scheduled to appear as part of a panel discussion on CFPL-TV's Inquiry, taping today.

The show features a tag-team debate over elevating tuition fees, the privatization of Western's MBA program and other student and administrative issues.

Western's president Paul Davenport and Fanshawe president Howard Rundle will be teaming up against Liberal education critic Sandra Pupatello and the students' council's big cheese.

The show will deal with issues similar to those brought up at the USC Town Hall meeting last week. "Now I get to show my views as a student," Tompkins said, adding his devil's advocate performance at the meeting left many students wondering what he stands for.

The episode airs Saturday at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday at 11:30 p.m.

Techno-art



The Undergraduate Engineering Society is hosting its sixth annual engineering art show Monday at noon in the Alexander Charles Spencer Engineering Science Building, featuring drawings and sculptures by Western engineering students and faculty.

Sam Donatelli, VP-finance for UES, said the show is a contest with monetary prizes for the top three contestants and runs until March 14.

"We want to let everyone know we're not just a bunch of calculators," he said.

Sporting attitude



Western is playing host to a very special event this weekend.

On Saturday the kinesiology department and volunteers from the university community will come together with special needs children from southern Ontario for the Winter Special Games. The event celebrates its 25th anniversary this year and promises to the best one yet.

Beth Pinnington, special events co-ordinator for the Kinesiology Students' Council, said, depending on the weather, there will be three outdoor and three indoor activities taking place around campus. The opening ceremony is at Alumni Hall at 9:30 a.m. and the fun continues until 2:30 p.m.

Correction


A story printed yesterday which stated the USC-proposed dental plan will not exceed a cost of $120 per student should have read $125 per student. The Gazette regrets the error.
