Summer lovin'



Mardi gras money

What kind of party results in thousands of dollars for charity?

Western's Charity Ball, of course. This year's event raised $34,000 which will be divided up between London's Memorial Boy's and Girl's Club and Mission Services, said University Students' Council VP-student affairs Meghan Symsyk.

The two organizations will be given their $17,000 cheques at a USC meeting tomorrow night.

Know how to fight back

Ever wondered how you would react if you were the victim of an attacker?

The University Police Department would like to help by offering personal safety awareness sessions beginning this spring, said Const. Wendy McGowan. The courses will be organized by the President's Committee on the Safety of Women on Campus and the UPD. Groups of 20 to 25 participants will have the opportunity to take part in a session that will include instruction from a self-defence expert as well as members of the UPD.

McGowan said if there are clubs or individuals who would like to take part in the seminar, they should contact the UPD to arrange a time and place. She added they plan to offer 10 to 15 courses, beginning in the spring and continuing in the fall.
