But Groom told Imprint that the money will be taken from the Campus “enrichment Centre’s fund,” rather than the salary account. Groom said that the fund, which presently stands at
$6200 per annum, is used to+ make improvements to the building. The fund henceforth will stand at $1200 per.annum, but he doesn’t think there will be any noticeable difference in the appearance of the Cam-

Ontario Last weekend, Ontario student newspapers urged UW students to support the Chevron in today’s referendum. A motion of support for UW’s official student newspaper passed with one dissenting vote. The Ontario Regional Canadian University Press (ORCUP) conference also rejected a recommendation of the CUP commission calling for condemnation for “certain of the Chevron
pus Centre as a result of the cut. “This is simply in line with what other departments have been asked to do, and we were in the fortunate position of having money to put into it,” said Groom. Matthews told Imprint that all university departments have been asked to reduce their salary budgets by an average of two and cent for one-half per 1979-80. He explained that under the current projections of UW finance, an overall decrease of 2.83 per cent in the salary budgets and an increase of 2.93 per cent in non-salary items is needed. Matthews said that unless‘ the projections ‘are altered, further cuts. will be necessary, including from the Campus Centre budget. Groom thinks that the Campus Centre salaries have already been trimmed as much as possible. “When the co-ordinator’s position was made from a part-time to full-time (job) ,” he explained, “we had trimmed all the ,shifts on the turnkeys that we could possibly trim, without cutting the services.” But Matthews said that the Campus Centre might have to re-evaluate its per: sonnel requirements in the future, since it may not be able to accommodate further bu.dget cuts from non-salaried items.

htruiler harasses residence women There are two men trespassing in female students’ rooms and startling them, in both the villages and the Co-op Residence on Phillip St., Imprint has learned. According to a Don in Village I, who wishes to remain anonymous, a man has been sneaking into women’s rooms during early morning and watching ’ them while they sleep. She added that the problem has been going on for over a month in the North and East Quads in Village I, and West Quad in Village II. Although the intruder has been able to get into their rooms, he has not touched any of them, she said. Meanwhile, another man has been entering girls rooms in the Co-op Residences two or three times a term for the past two years, according to a Co-op spokesman who also wishes to remain anonymous. He added that the man usually sits at their desks and reads a newspaper. On some occasions he has patted the shoulders of sleeping women. “People in the Co-op residences feel pretty secure at night, so they don’t bother to lock their doors,” he said. “As a result he can gain very easy access intotheir rooms.” He also said that although the nocturnal visits have been going on for two years, nobody, including the police, has had a chance’to catch the culprit. On several occasions, groups of students in the Co-op Residence have banded together and kept a watch unsuccessfully. Recently, rumours have been spread proclaiming that the man plaguing the Co-op Residences has been caught. However, Campus Security supervisor Al Romenco said that he-cannot release any information to students concerning the accuracy of these rumours. But according to the Village I Don, security has increased the number of nightly checks around the villages. The Co-op spokesman said that “if security has caught the man we would have heard from them by now.” Leonard Darwen
Smit ‘makes a snowdanceFederation president Rick Smit allegedly harrassed a Chevron staffer and UW student Monday evening, resulting in a confrontation with the campus police. The staffer, Steve Shaw, came out of the PAC beside the Chevron office when Smit and Imprint editor Nick Redding were throwing snowballs at the office window. Both Smit and
Redding seemed very drunk. Smit danced around Shaw, pulling punches and kicking. He did not strike Shaw. Shaw says- Smit knocked his glasses down his nose. .* Smit is 6'4" an,d weighs 210 pounds; Shaw is 5’7” and weighs 125 pounds. Redding did not participate in the harassment.
When the police came, Smit argued with them for several minutes after being asked to leave. One officer told Smit and Redding “this is a university, not a bloody kindergarten.” Smit and Redding frequently threw snowballs at the Chevron window last winter. Ciaran
