Leave it to Weaver



Soulsville USA

Slide on over to Soulsville tomorrow when Grammy award winner Rob Bowman, author of Soulsville U.S.A.: The Story of Stax Records, visits Western to talk about the rise and fall of Stax Records company.

Stax Records, the premier rhythm and blues label in the 1960s and '70s recorded artists such as Otis Redding, Carla Thomas and Booker T.. The label created what became known as the 'stax sound,' said Bob Klanac, manager of marketing and services for the University Students' Council.

Bowman will visit the McKellar Room tomorrow at noon and a book signing will follow. Everyone is welcome and admission is free.

Is it O-week yet?

For the first time ever, the University Students' Council is looking for faculty Sophs for Orientation Week 1998. Although the USC is currently not sure how the different faculties will be integrated into O-week next year, they do plan to have Sophs from faculties such as social science, science, arts and kinesiology.

Applications are now available at Infosource and various faculty council offices, Berlin added.

The need to read

If Dr. Seuss and Peter Pan are only taking up room in a reading library somewhere, it may be time to do a little spring cleaning by donating some books to the Third Annual Charity Book Drive.

Organized by The Western Classics Society, books will be accepted until April 30 at either The Used Book Store in Rm. 35 of the University Community Centre or at Talbot College in Rm. 406.
