Cross with care

Western student Kevin MacGregor is reported to be in stable condition at Victoria Hospital after being struck by a vehicle while crossing Richmond St. last Saturday night.

Jack Churney, information release officer for the London City Police Department, said MacGregor was crossing Richmond St. at Kent St. at 10:45 p.m. at the pedestrian crosswalk with the lights flashing when he was struck by a southbound vehicle.

He suffered injuries to his head and leg, Churney said. He added 18-year- old Kimberley Millson is charged with failing to yield to a pedestrian at a crosswalk.

Churney encourages students not to rely on the flashing lights alone when using crosswalks and to make sure oncoming traffic has stopped before crossing the street. He said many cars do not have time to stop as the lights at crosswalks come on quickly.

Derby nights?

Tonight the Wave will host a bachelor/ette auction and airbands as part of "Derby Days", being put on by Western's Sigma Chi fraternity and six sororities.

The action begins at 9:30 p.m. and all proceeds will be donated to the London Humane Society, said Sigma Chi member Chris Flumley. All purchases from the auction will be accompanied by gift certificates. The event is part of this week's fund-raising campaign.

King's new boss

In remembrance

A "Memorial of Shoes" is being built in the University Community Centre atrium to raise awareness about land mine fatalities around the world.

"The empty shoes will symbolize the limbs lost by land mine victims," said Christian Reformed Chaplain, Mike Veenema. Students are asked to support the cause by donating a shoe to the memorial on Nov. 10 and 11 between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., Veenema said.
