Naming the names

Western's Jewish Students' Union is holding a Holocaust Vigil beginning at noon today with an opening ceremony on Concrete Beach.

Over the course of the 24-hour vigil, 15,000 names of the Holocaust victims will be read.

Gloria Gilbert, a London resident and Holocaust survivor as well as members of the Western community are scheduled to speak.

"This day is to remind all students of how evil man can be. This is not a day to cry. It's a day to see that this never happens again," Arye Berk, director of the JSU said.

Show bizness

Students studying in the Business 257 course strutted their stuff last Thursday at a feasibility competition to judge class projects in the Richard Ivey School of Business.

The winners of this year's Robert G. Siskind Entrepreneurial Award were second-year students Anne Iarocci, Boaz Shilmover, Paul Simcox, Rhian Thornhill, Trevor Walker, Brett Willms and Stuart Wollach, said Carol Fuller, course coordinator at Ivey.

Their winning project was 'CabAD' – an advertising fixture to be placed in taxis which enables advertisers to reach cab customers as they ride, Fuller said.

It's spring, crime is in the air

Const. Wendy McGowan of the University Police Department warns students to keep a close eye on their personal belongings, including knapsacks, wallets and bicycles. Over the past week, police have seen the occurrences of theft increase.

On Friday, a picture was stolen from the lobby of Medway Hall, McGowan reported. There was a witness of the event and the perpetrator was caught and returned the property.

At 11 p.m. Friday night, police responded to a report of marijuana use outside Saugeen-Maitland Hall, but no drugs were found. –Sara Marett
