Ow, those old hockey bones....

What’s black and white and red all over? The 25 staff hockey players who have been going at it every Friday evening since the beginning of the school year. The big payoff? Camaraderie, good cheer and a yearly contribution to a worthy charity. Many thanks to Recreation & Athletics and Vice-Rector Services. After a summer of healing, the battle between black and white will begin again.

Applications and guidelines may be obtained from the chair, dir-ector, principal or head of an academic unit or from the Office of the Provost.

Late and incomplete applications are unacceptable. The next round will take place in May 2004.



There were editing errors in the article published in our March 27 issue regarding Martin Lefebvre, newly appointed Research Chair in Film Studies.

When teaching at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Dr. Lefebvre established an undergraduate program in film studies (not semiotics).

The name of one of his colleagues in his current research, Rosanna Maule (Cinema), was unfortunately misspelled, as was the Cinémathèque québécois. The editor apologizes for these errors.



CTR schedule change

Due to religious holidays, there will be three weeks rather than two before the next issue, and three weeks before the last issue of the term. Here are the dates of remaining issues of CTR: May 1, May 15, June 5.
