Westernizer Whoops


Due to an error in this year's Westernizer, students who think their holiday break lasts until Jan. 6 will be two days late for class.

Warren Tilston, communications officer for the University Students' Council, said he overlooked the mistake and classes resume Jan. 4, not Jan. 6 as printed.

"It's unfortunate. I hope I haven't inconvenienced people," Tilston said. He added he was pleased with the overall success of the Westernizer.



Central American aid


In an effort to support the victims of hurricane Mitch, the faculty of information and media studies is seeking donations of bottled water to help the cause.

Martie Grof-Iannelli, a public information services coordinator for FIMS, said she contacted the Salvation Army and the Canadian Red Cross, who both indicated a desperate need for water and monetary donations.

"The Salvation Army said a sealed source of fresh drinking water is the most needed commodity," she said.

The FIMS resource centre in Middlesex College, Room 240, is accepting bottled water until Nov. 15, Grof-Iannelli said. Donations will then be delivered to the Salvation Army.

"It's a horrible situation where they've got water everywhere, but not a drop to drink," she said.

Although FIMS is not accepting cash, Grof-Iannelli said cheques can be sent to the Red Cross and should specify their use as Central American relief.
