Campaignin' the campus

The campaign for student positions on Senate and the Board of Governors began yesterday and University Students' Council chief returning officer Tim Morris is advising all students to keep their eyes peeled for this year's 54 candidates.

Morris said the number of candidates is much higher than last year and there are four USC positions up for grabs. The council is looking for two social science and two science reps.

The campaign ends midnight on Oct. 20. At noon the same day in the atrium will be the first-ever Board of Governors forum, similar to the presidential media forum, Morris explained.

Voting for the by-elections will take place Oct. 21 and 22.

Big hat stolen from Big Sugar

As Homecoming hoopla became a reality on the weekend, London and campus police had their hands full with noise complaints and other festive-related problems.

Theives were on the loose as a $300 stetson was stolen from a Big Sugar band member at The Wave on Friday night. As well, someone attempted to steal one of the few remaining Elvis busts at The Spoke but although no charges were laid, the person was banned from the site. On Saturday at 11:39 p.m. chairs were stolen from the Ivey School of Business' tent on University College Hill. The complainant recovered the chairs but the suspects fled.

On Friday at 10:23 p.m. police were called to Bayfield Hall where students were throwing beer bottles from a balcony. Also on Friday, "Eng-01" was sprayed on the student side of the football field and had to be removed before Saturday's game.

In all, Const. Wendy McGowan said incidents were up a bit from last year but not substantially.
