Pie tossin' for charity

Pay a buck for a pie and let it fly! Today in the University Community Centre, the United Way gives students the chance to cream their leaders.

Local celebrities will be the target of a pie throwing contest held between 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.. John Bayliss, United Way Commissioner for the University Students' Council, said for only $1, students can toss pies at members of fraternities and vice-presidents from around campus while at the same time supporting a valuable charity.

The United Way campaign wraps up Friday with support being tremendous so far, Bayliss said, adding he hopes support will carry through the rest of the week.

Rock 'em, sock 'em Spoke event

Ron MacLean is coming to The Spoke tomorrow night in his second trip to Western in three years. The event is called Hockey Talk and is part of the University Students' Council speakers series.

"MacLean provides a comedic, anecdotal, behind-the-scenes look at some of the games he has hosted with Don Cherry on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada," said Bob Klanac, USC marketing and services manager.

MacLean's performance goes beyond hockey, Klanac said. Serious questions about current events will also be entertained with an insider's perspective. Tickets for the 6 p.m. show cost $5 and are going fast. A sellout crowd is expected.

Euthanasia coming to Alumni Hall

The national debate series, "Euthanasia: Is it Right or Wrong?" will visit Western tomorrow at 7 p.m. in Alumni Hall.

Debating in favour of the issue is Faye Girsh, director of the Hemlock Society, while arguing against will be Paul Chamberlain, a professor of ethics at Trinity Western University who is currently writing a book on physician-assisted suicide.

"It is an issue that affects everyone, especially the elderly," said Sandra Hatchard of the Campus Crusade for Christ.

A 20-minute presentation will be made by each speaker followed by a rebuttal, redress rebuttal and questions from the floor. Admission to the event is free.
