Parading floats


Let the competition begin.

Float building for this year's Homecoming parade will be held at the Huron Flats this Friday at 3 p.m. and continue until 7 a.m. Saturday morning, at which time the floats will be judged, said Tom Mathies, Homecoming commissioner for the University Students' Council.

Each of the participants will have their own theme, Mathies said. Anyone wishing to get involved may do so as long as they have the permission of their constituency.

The floats will be displayed at the Homecoming parade this Saturday which begins outside of City Hall at 10 a.m. and travels to Western's J.W. Little Stadium.

Western on air


Homecoming weekend will see the McKellar Room in the University Community Centre transformed into a radio show.

On Oct. 4, a series of Canadian Broadcasting Corporation Radio activities will be featured. The shows presented will be "Take it to the Top," which is devoted to promoting community accountability and "Cross Country Checkup," which will discuss the future of universities, said Lynn Munkley, executive producer for CBC.

Both programs will be broadcast live, have free admission and parking and will be hosted by Rex Murphy. The public is encouraged to be a part of the studio audience.

Happy hour hits Lucy's


Starting in October, Lucy's Cafe will be serving liquor as part of its own happy hour.

The cafe, which is located in the main level of Somerville House, will be serving light liquor, such as beer and wine, as part of the daily menu, said Susan Grindrod, director of the housing and food services.

According to Grindrod, the idea of the happy hour started over the summer when new furniture was placed in the snack bar. "We have had requests to have some alternative to the faculty bar – we are fulfilling a need."

However, happy hour isn't just for faculty. Students are able to join in the fun too. "It's for everyone," Grindrod said.

Happy hour will be daily from 4 p.m to 7 p.m..
